Photo Gallery: Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg

A crowd of mourners gathered at the county courthouse in Leesburg on Sunday night to reflect on the life and legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday at 87. Speakers during the brief vigil included faith and political leaders and others inspired by Ginsburg’s trailblazing legal career and called on those in attendance to continue her work . 

“It is up to us to pick it up and continue with the amazing work that Justice Ginsburg accomplished during her long career and that she cared passionately about. I know that each and every one of you here will continue that march toward greater equality for women and all minorities and for greater social justice,” Supervisor Kristen Umstattd (D-Leesburg) said.

    Typical double speak nonsense from pandering politicians. How about equality for all?

    Please direct your metaphorical march to South Africa. There you will see how life is under a government whose constitution embodies leftist and progressive ideals Ginsburg championed. The South Africa constitution was praised “It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done” by Ginsburg and offered as a model while saying she “would not look to the U.S. Constitution” as a model. That is something to remember.

    After dissuading use of the US Constitution, in her praise for the South Africa constitution Ginsburg stated it “embraced basic human rights”, leaving an impression of a view that the US Constitution does not. This can cause one to wonder if Ginsburg’s court decisions in the area of human rights where in line with her interpretation/view of the US Constitution or that of her own personal political views.

    Statements made about Ginsburg made since her passing indicate she was a viewed as political activist more so that a justice. Even the statements provided in this photo gallery acknowledge the same… “to continue her work” and “to … continue with the amazing work”. What exactly is the late Justice Ginsburg’s work being referred to which those in attendance can continue, if not political activism?

    There are those justices who interpret original meaning and intent of the US Constitution, then there are those justices who disrespect it, twist and insert words into it, using the bench to force on others their own leftist progressive agendas… work which they care passionately about.
