Martha-Ann Alito Condemns Pride Flags, the Left, and the Media

Source: Rolling Stone

Martha-Ann Alito, wife of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, is incensed about seeing rainbow Pride flags during Pride Month, according to a new recording obtained by Rolling Stone. If it were up to her, she would be flying a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag in response. Or she might design her own flag, one sporting the Italian word for “shame.”

In recent weeks, Martha-Ann Alito has been at the center of a national firestorm over two flags seen flying at their residences that have been associated with right-wing movements that question the legitimacy of the results of the 2020 election. Justice Alito has blamed his wife for flying those flags — and rebuffed calls from Democratic lawmakers to recuse himself from upcoming decisions in cases related to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Like her husband, Mrs. Alito is unbowed by the criticism and controversy — as she makes clear in comments recorded by liberal documentary filmmaker Lauren Windsor. Windsor, posing as a Christian conservative, spoke at length with Mrs. Alito at a dinner reception hosted by the Supreme Court Historical Society last week. Windsor attended the dinner as a dues-paying member and bought a ticket; a colleague joined her.

Rolling Stone first reported on Windsor’s conversation with Justice Alito on Monday. While several outlets have recently relayed stories of Martha-Ann’s tense interactions with neighbors — apparently in response to a sign opposing Donald Trump — Windsor’s recording presents the justice’s wife in her own words. The audio, provided exclusively to Rolling Stone, paints a picture of a right-wing ideologue that matches with the private reputation that Mrs. Alito has developed in the Republican Party and judicial social circuits in the D.C. area and beyond.

1. Nobody's keeping her from flying a Sacred Heart flag.

She's welcome to do so. And nobody is forcing her to fly a gay pride flag.

She sounds like a thoroughly unpleasant person. I see why her neighbors hate her.

piety/virtue/martyr-signalling flag if it will soothe your snowflake feelings. You could always ignore the Pride flags. Or, you could go to therapy, because I suspect that you have more than a few issues that could use some professional attention.

Demented wife logic at work. The logic is:

My husband is very important, he sort of like, runs the country!

And I run my husband!

Hence, I run the country!

And here is my opinion on (just about everything.)

It is worth much more than your opinion!

Yeah, ok . . . no idea where this uppity lady finds the courage to trample on decency, sensitivity towards others, respect for the boundaries her husband is supposed to be aware of in his job, but there it is.

She might like this version?

It illustrates the point that nobody attains a position of leadership in the Republican Party unless they are hiding some ugly secret in their closet.

I don't even want to know what's in the Alito's closet...
