Democrat uses apocalyptic rhetoric against justices
President Trump’s travel ban win at the Supreme Court on Monday so incensed Democrat Rep. Mazie Hirono that she called a trio of justices “horsemen of the apocalypse.”
The biblical four horsemen of the apocalypse were on the mind of Hawaii’s Ms. Hirono in the hours following a 9-0 ruling in favor of Mr. Trump’s limitations on travel and refugees.
Most of the commander in chief’s plan to limit travel from six terrorismconnected countries can be implemented for now, although the full case will go to the high court in October for a decision on the merits.
Ms. Hirono told MSNBC that she was shocked over Justices Neil M. Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito legal support for Mr. Trump’s full policy regarding immigration from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
“Neil Gorsuch, who I did not support as a Supreme Court Justice, he’s joined two of the most conservatives justices — Clarence Thomas and Alito — on the court to take the position that the entire injunction should have been lifted,” the congresswoman said, according to The Blaze.
“This is like the three horsemen of the apocalypse, and they’re waiting for the fourth one to come along so that they can go on their trend towards what I call ‘extremism,’” she claimed.
The four horsemen of the apocalypse, from the New Testament’s last book, Revelation, are typically identified as Death, Famine, War and Conquest/Pestilence.
Rep. Mazie Hirono referred to three of the Supreme Court justices as the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
