Antonin Scalia didn’t mince words in his dissenting opinion on Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. The conservative justice called his colleague Anthony Kennedy’s opinion for the majority “as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” adding that it diminished “this Court’s reputation for clear thinking and sober analysis.” Over the last three decades, he has peppered his dissents (for the most part) with put-downs of his colleagues, plaintiffs, or whatever it was he was angry about on the day of writing. And now, with Mother Jones‘ handy Scalia Insult Generator, you can create your own!

Give it a try:

 

All insults are derived from actual Antonin Scalia quotes, except for “Your mom.” Your mom is fake. Wait, no, I didn’t mean it like that. I’m sure she’s lovely.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
