Hillary Clinton Calls Justice Alito’s Religious Worldview ‘Scary’

Hillary Clinton condemned Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito for his faith-based worldview.

The former secretary of state called Alito “scary” during a podcast interview with Marc Elias of Democracy Docket.

“You know, I was in the Senate when both John Roberts and Alito were nominated to the court by George W. Bush. Therefore, I had a chance, as you rightly say, to interview both of them,” Clinton said in the interview.

She explained that she found Alito to be a “radical” due to his Catholic beliefs.

“Alito struck me almost immediately upon sitting down to talk with him as a radical, as a fanatic about his views of culture and the role of religion in our society, and his religion, not maybe yours or mine, Marc, but his religion. And I found him scary, and I said so on the floor of the Senate when I voted against him,” Clinton stated.

“We got the judges that had been groomed, put into the pipeline to do what they are now doing,” she added.

Justice Alito recently made headlines after his wife displayed an “Appeal to Heaven” flag outside their beach house, causing many to call for his recusal from Donald Trump’s cases regarding January 6.

The flag, which dates to the Revolutionary War, has been used by some as a cry for election integrity following January 6, 2021.

In a letter addressed to Democratic Senators, Alito said of the “Appeal to Heaven” flag, “I recall that my wife did fly that flag for some period of time, but I do not remember how long it flew. And what is most relevant here, I had no involvement in the decision to fly that flag.”

“My wife is fond of flying flags. I am not. My wife was solely responsible for having flagpoles put up at our residence and our vacation home and has flown a wide variety of flags over the years,” he continued. “In addition to the American flag, she has flown other patriotic flags (including a favorite flag thanking veterans), college flags, flags supporting sports teams, state and local flags, flags of nations from which the ancestors of family members came, flags of places we have visited, seasonal flags, and religious flags.”
