  •  "A menace to civilization"? (0+ / 0-)

    That's a hell of a logical leap.

    Suggesting that someone who understands why a person wearing a jacket that was clearly referring to a controversial social/political movement was removed from the Supreme Court building after refusing to remove the jacket is "a menace to the civilization" suggests that you see that particular instance as a key and deciding moment in the history of the civilization, such that in taking a position on this one particular instance one is unequivocally and irreversibly declaring which side one is on.

    That seems a bit far-fetched to me...
