For Flag Day, The Alito’s Go All Out Across the Dark Lagoon.

(Martha Ann Alito’s Flag of preference for Flag Day, and every day.)

Supreme Court Justice Samuel’s Alito’s wife, Martha Ann Alito, has become so obsessed with making America more “Godly,” that she’s taken to designing Flags in her head, to be flown when her husband “is free of all this nonsense” — of being one of nine US Supreme Court Justices. Yes, she actually said that.

Martha (Alito, not Mitchell) let all the world see the worm holes in her head at a Christian Nationalist cult-meeting, when asked what kinds of Flags she’s thinking of:

“They’ll be all kinds. I made a flag in my head. This is how I satisfy myself. I made a flag. It’s white and it has yellow and orange flames around it. And in the middle is the word VERGOGNA.” (Editors’ note: “Vergogna” means “Shame” in Italian, and has been used on flags protesting Italy’s “shameful” immigration policy, to movie titles by Enrico Morricone, for “Vergogna Schifosi,” literally translated as “Disgusting Shame.”)

While her husband Sam has cast a crazed Savonarola-like spell over the Supreme Court on matters of personal autonomy, women’s rights, sexuality, racist reapportionment, and matters of “godliness,” and faith, Martha has been dreaming of becoming America’s new Betsy Ross.

Here are some of the Alito’s real and imagined flags they’ve either already flown, or are dreaming of flying once Sam’s Supreme Court “nonsense” is over, and he has made America “godly” again. That is, of course, in the image of the fundamentalist Christian God, not the God of Jews, Muslims, progressive Christians, or of any other faith.

(NB: The Swastika flag may be on loan from Right Wing Billionaire Harlan Crow, benefactor of Alito’s fellow Far-Right collaborator on the Supreme Court Clarence Thomas, and collector of Nazi paraphernalia.)
