6 Videos of Antonin Scalia That Will Make Your Head Spin
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died on Saturday, Feb. 13 at the age of 79. Scalia, known for his conservatism, had some pretty outlandish views, given modern times. "I feel less comfortable when everybody agrees with me," Scalia once said in defense. "Words have meaning. And their meaning doesn't change." No argument there, Scalia. Watch below a few segments on the things he opposed most.
1. The Internet
Scalia believed the Internet "coarsened American culture." You're really not going to like hearing what he thought of Facebook.
3. Religious Neutrality
4. Gay Rights
Scalia wasn't too happy about Supreme Court decisions protecting gay Americans. Though gay marriage had been legalized nationwide earlier that year, during an appearance at Georgetown Law School in late November, Scalia expressed concern over the high court choosing which minorities get certain protections, the New York Times reported. “What? It’s up to me to identify deserving minorities?" Scalia said. "What about pederasts? What about child abusers?"
Scalia was "adamantly opposed" to abortion, as he told CNN's Piers Morgan in a conversation about Roe v. Wade in 2012. But like almost all of his arguments, the best part is watching him struggle to articulate why. It's almost as entertaining as when he appears totally confused upon finding out that the Constitution doesn't mention women's rights at all.
6. Affirmative Action
