The Stanford law student who was targeted by the Federalist Society for his parody of the organization has denounced them as a hotbed of insurrection.
The Federalist Society’s connections to the attack on the Capitol are no joke. The collective efforts of the members of the Federalist Society gave a veneer of legal legitimacy to the falsehoods that fed the insurrectionary mob. Meanwhile, the Federalist Society itself has resolutely refused to repudiate those members who played a role in inciting insurrection.
No organization with such broad ties to a violent attack on our democracy should occupy a place of respect within the legal community. The Federalist Society has long relied on the participation of revered lawyers and influential academics in campus events to shore up its reputation as a law school debate club. But those who participate in the debates of the Federalist Society give the organization an air of nonpartisan credibility that is completely at odds with reality.
The Federalist Society cannot be allowed to successfully employ this cynical strategy as its leading members continue to fan the flames of a dangerous anti-democratic movement.
Federalist society chose Trump’s judicial nominees and they are enemies of democracy
The Federalist Society was able to fill the federal courts with carefully chosen judicial candidates and many unqualified ones. The Federalist Society also drew up the roster of Trump’s Supreme Court justices.
After Joe Biden won the election, the Federalist Society filed and funded the bogus legal challenges for the 2020 election.
The Federalists are being exposed as a dangerous organization that is willing to try to manipulate the legal system for undemocratic purposes.
