Wife of Supreme Court Justice Complains About Having to Stare at Pride Flag During Secret Taping

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s wife, Martha-Ann Alito, complained about having to look at a pride flag, according to a secret recording.

Alito made the remark at the Supreme Court Historical Society’s annual dinner on June 3 to Lauren Windsor, who posed as a conservative supporter. It comes amid a series of controversies between the conservative Supreme Court justice and his wife.

“You know what I want?” » said the judge’s wife according to the recording. “I want a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag because I have to look across the lagoon at the Pride flag for the next month.”

She went on to say that after expressing her need for a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag, her husband responded, “Oh, please don’t put up a flag. »

“He says, ‘Oh, please don’t put up a flag.’ I said, “I won’t do it because I’m relying on you.” But when you are free from this nonsense, I will put it online and message them every day. Maybe every week I’ll change the flags,” she said.

She added that she would invent her own flag, which would be white with yellow and orange flames and which would say, in Italian, “shame”.

Alito’s secret recording was posted online Monday evening by Windsor, who describes herself as a documentary filmmaker and “activist journalist.”

Windsor, which has previously reached out to conservatives including former Vice President Mike Pence, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, released edited recordings of Alito’s remarks, as well as a Justice Alito’s separate recording from the same night in which he agreed. the United States should “return to a place of godliness.”

“The people of this country who believe in God must continue to fight for this – to return our country to godliness,” Windsor told Justice Alito.

“I agree with you. I agree with you,” he replied.

He was also heard agreeing with Windsor’s statement that there were “no negotiations with the radical left”.

Meanwhile, in a recording of the 2023 Supreme Court Historical Society dinner, also released by Windsor, Justice Alito could be heard accusing the media of “eroding trust” in the American justice system in the eyes of American citizens.

“It’s easy to blame the media, but I blame them because they only criticize us,” he said.

The recordings come as the judge and his wife are in the spotlight following controversy over several flags placed in front of their homes in Virginia and New Jersey.

Earlier this month, The New York Times revealed that an upside-down American flag was flown at Justice Alito’s Virginia home in January 2021 after the 2020 presidential election – a symbol used by the “Stop the Steal” movement supporting Donald’s false claims of election fraud Trump.

It was later revealed that a “Call to Heaven” flag was flying over Alito’s vacation home in New Jersey, a symbol carried by rioters on January 6.

Following these revelations, Justice Alito blamed his wife for the incident, saying she had displayed the flag upside down in response to a “very unpleasant neighborhood dispute,” which apparently involved the former neighbor of Alito, Emily Baden, using the term “c*”. **” in an exchange with his wife.

Baden disputed that account, suggesting that Justice Alito is “at worst outright lying” about the details of the exchange.

Justice Alito has sought to distance himself from the dispute, writing in a letter released last month to more than 30 members of Congress that he was unaware the upside-down American flag was flying. He said that when he asked his wife to remove it, she “refused”.

“My wife is a private citizen and has the same First Amendment rights as every other American. She makes her own decisions and I have always respected her right to do so,” he wrote.

The judge then explained that he had “nothing to do” with the “Heaven Calling” flag, which was just one of “many flags” his wife flew over the years.

These include a flag thanking veterans, college flags, flags supporting sports teams, state and local flags, flags of nations, flags of places visited, seasonal flags and religious flags, he wrote.

“My wife loves flying flags,” he wrote. “I’m not.”

Ms. Alito discussed the controversy at the Supreme Court Historical Society dinner, according to the secret recording, telling Windsor that “feminazis” think her husband should “control” her.

“The feminazis think he should control me,” she reportedly said. “Then they will go to hell. He never controls me.

According to the recording, Windsor then told Alito that she was upset by the attention “the media” has given to the importance of flags and whether Samuel Alito should recuse himself from two cases related to the January 6 in light of the revelations.

Alito then gave Windsor some advice: “Don’t get angry,” she said. “Getting it again.”

A little later, when Windsor lamented how “they’re persecuting you and you’re like a convenient stand-in for anyone who’s religious,” Alito suggested she was going to “go after” the media.

“Look at me. I’m German, I’m from Germany. My heritage is German. If you follow me, I’ll give it back to you. And there will be a way – it doesn’t have to be now – but there will be a way they will know. Don’t worry about it,” she said before quoting the Bible.

“Psalm 27 is my psalm,” she said in Windsor. “The Lord is my God and my rock. Who would I be afraid of? Person.”

Alito later accepted her husband’s position that there was “no negotiating with the radical left” after Windsor recalled the conversation she had with Justice Alito.

“They feel,” Alito said. “They don’t think.”
