We hold this truth to be self-evident: We are sick of this shit.

We have established that all men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That when any branch of government becomes destructive of these rights, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it.

We acknowledge an institution such as the Supreme Court has, like our country, a complicated past. Previous Supreme Courts have supported civil rights and liberties, yet have also passed decisions reinforcing slavery, eugenics, and corruption. But now, as this current court transitions away from modern democracy and towards despotism, it is again the People’s right—and their duty—to strip power away from such governance. After all, this is what the United States of America was founded on.

The past four terms of this United States Supreme Court showcase contradictory readings of the Constitution, clearly partisan decisions, and an attempt to establish absolute tyranny over these citizens. To prove this, let the facts be submitted to a candid world:

  • In Carson v. Makin, the court ruled that a Maine program excluding private religious schools from a state tuition program violates the free exercise of religion, despite the First Amendment calling for a separation of Church and State.
  • In Shurtleff v. Boston, the court ruled that the City of Boston had violated the First Amendment when it refused to let a private group raise a Christian flag at its City Hall, violating the First Amendment again.
  • In New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court ruled that states with limits on carrying guns in public violate the Second Amendment because the Second Amendment is somehow more important than the First Amendment… How? Exactly?
  • In West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency, the Supreme Court voted to restrict the EPA’s authority to mandate carbon emissions reductions, because coal is the future and certainly more important than breathing.
  • In Rucho vs. Common Cause, the Supreme Court overturned a decision ordering North Carolina’s voting districts to be reconfigured to remove partisan bias. Even though the lower courts had decided the Republican-drawn districts were so politically biased that they violated the rights of voters under the U.S. Constitution.
  • If that wasn’t bad enough, the Supreme Court has now decided to take on whether legislatures, not state courts, have final authority to decide how elections for federal candidates are conducted. Because widespread voter suppression isn’t a big enough problem in this country.
  • A third of the six men on the Supreme Court have been credibly accused of sexual assault or harassment. This includes Brett Kavanaugh, who was nominated by a president with multiple accusations of sexual assault himself, ’cause bros be bros.
  • In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the court ruled that banning abortions after fifteen weeks is constitutional, overturning the constitutional right to abortion established by Roe v. Wade in 1973.
  • Seriously, despite the majority of Americans supporting the right to choose, they overturned Roe v. Wade.
  • Justice Clarence Thomas will not recuse himself from decisions where personal entanglements question his impartiality, even though his wife is a right-wing activist. Ginni Thomas has held leadership positions at conservative pressure groups involved with the Supreme Court, and has publicly declared that America is in existential danger because of the “deep state” and the “fascist left,” which includes “transsexual fascists.” But, of course, she would have no influence on her husband. They only live together, after all.
  • Again, THEY OVERTURNED ROE V. WADE. People will die because of this.

And many, many more incidents that are too exhausting and depressing to continue naming.

At every stage, we the People, have protested in the most public of ways. Our repeated protests have been ignored, or answered only by Nancy Pelosi insisting we donate more money to sit-on-their-hands Democrats. When this Supreme Court’s rulings are marked by every act which may define a Tyrant—and we’re talking King George levels of tyrant behavior—they are unfit to decide on behalf of the People.

Therefore, we the People of the United States of America do solemnly declare that these United States no longer recognizes the authority of this Supreme Court. That all political connections will be totally dissolved; and that as people of a free and independent union we have the right to choose for our own bodies, use whatever bathrooms we need, have sex for pleasure without fear of retribution, protect our privacy, safeguard our dignity, and make decisions based on facts and reason. We support this Declaration with a firm resolve to protect our communities, as we mutually pledge to save our hard-won rights or burn this whole goddamn thing to the ground.
