Why Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch protected LGBTQ rights

Why Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch protected LGBTQ rights 1

 

CNN's Jeffrey Toobin explains why Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's first nominee to the Supreme Court, decided to deliver an opinion that will change how more than 7 million LGBTQ individuals will live and work in the United States.
It is a watershed moment from an unlikely author that means gay, lesbian and transgender workers are protected by federal civil rights law. It is a stunning defeat for judicial conservatives who worked to ensure Gorsuch's nomination and Republicans, including Donald Trump, who stymied President Barack Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, liberal Merrick Garland in 2016.
The ruling puts Gorsuch in the history books.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Gorsuch wrote, which bars discrimination "because of sex," also covers claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity

  1. A rare bright spot in the reign of Dictator Donnie.

    • I bet u most of his supporters will fight this tooth n nail, some of them still beefing with Obama over him legalizing gay marriage, they ain’t even past that.

    • @Sam G. which is why trump has been repeatedly sued (and lost) because his businesses were discriminating against minorities?

    • @jarrod goforth HOW IS HE, PLEASE SHOW AND EXPLAIN WHAT HE IS DOING!!!

    • @Hey Ho The comments after yours just devolve into arguments, but I wanna say that your comment genuinely made me chuckle. Thanks

    • @RJCHOICE FOR ONE, TRUMP’S NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHO VOTES FOR HIM AND PRAISES HIM, HE NEVER ONCE PROMOTED KKK OR NEO NAZIS, EVER!! IF HE WAS RACIST HE WOULD HAVE NEVER LET HIS DAUGHTER CONVERT TO JUDAISM AND MARY KUSHNER. I AM NOT SURE WHO THAT “GIRL” IS THAT YOU ARE REFERRING TO!!! YOU ONLY HATE HIM BECAUSE THE LEFTIST MEDIA PERFECTLY CONDITIONED YOU TO THINK THAT WAY.😒
      THE REAL RACIST IS YOUR WONDERFUL JOE BIDEN, WITH PICTIRE EVIDENCE OF HIM WITH THE GRAND WIZARD OF KKK, I AM SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO LOOK THAT UP, REMEMBER WHO SAID IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR ME, YOU “AIN’T” BLACK ENOUGH!!! YAH THAT I AM SURE YOU CONVENIENTLY TURNED A BLIND EYE TO.😉

  4. It’s not a big deal it is a matter of common sense! Know one should be fired based on there sexual orientation!

  5. Shocking that in this day people-judges no less-think its OK to discriminate against anyone? Aren’t judges supposed to be smart???

    • @Bat Boy no one is getting fored for being gay, this is all about allowing trans women to be allowed in women spaces

    • @K H M2F seem to have alot of privilege, people are breaking their backs trying to be pro trans , well now they will be in those women spaces

      “women’s shelters”

      “women can wear women’s dress to work,”

    Rage tweets coming from Bunker Boy in 3….2….1

    • no no no he was just inspecting it lmao

    • @Jason Wilson No, he never said he approved, he said “we can live with it.” He tried to take away LGBTQ+ rights, and the fact that you said he supports them is astounding

    • @Michael williamson Ah yes, he would neverrrrrrr try to take away their rights or make it easier for them to be fired because of their own way of thinking, that would neverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr happen

    • Michael williamson | June 15, 2020 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      Eter8 that never has happened, and it won’t happen. Get over your blind hatred for the man. You have been fooled by the media to believe he is a racist, a homophobe, and whatever else they can think of. That’s projection. They’re projecting how they feel (Democrats, especially) truly about issues onto him so they can dupe you for your vote.

      Maybe, but more likely from all SANE Americans!

  8. Why is there even a debate regarding whether or not its legal, let alone moral, to discriminate against people. What happened to “one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all?” Country is filled with a bunch of hypocrites

      @Dalene Gragg That was added in the early 1950s if I remember correctly. I grew up fine before that was added.

    • The M Network | June 15, 2020 at 10:23 PM | Reply

      @Dalene Gragg But it funny because when Obama was in the office all hell broke loose among the Christians. They said that he was the one that made it a law. Well look at this Trump man that he put into office was apart of this. Oh yes God free Obama. The S.C does not have to get anyone permission to pass a law. Christian or no Christian. I just think it is pure funny.

      @Abel Aguilar No @AB it totally correct. The original Pledge of Allegiance, written by a minister mind you, did not include any reference to a deity purposely. “In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words ‘under God,'” One of the hallmarks of Soviet Russia was an outlawing of religion.

  9. It’s pretty disturbing that In 2020 people are still fighting for the right to be themselves

    Brett Kavanaugh voted against it. Not surprised.

    • s3cr3tpassword | June 15, 2020 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      Thomas will always vote conservative no matter what. Probably out of spite for being in the same position as Brett did back in the 90s.

      Brett voted against because he wanted a new case to be brought up to the SCOTUS and not having to reinterpret what the word ‘sex’ pertains to.

      Wiggle Waggle they don’t want to accept that fact. They believe everything the media tells them.

    • I don’t think Trump particularly cares about the issue. Everything is a political calculation for him.

      @John Tuya i watch fox news and i hear trump support all sexes including transgender people and yes, i am disgusted that anyone would consider letting a man that considers himself a woman use the same bathroom as my young daughter.

    Well.. as you recall.. Justices Kavanaugh and Thomas were *BOTH* accused of sexual assault *BEFORE* they were appointed.. and now they are *against* LGBQT rights because they think it’s *immoral.* Go Figure!

    • Michael williamson | June 15, 2020 at 10:19 PM | Reply

      Rory Cannon same thing applies to kavanaugh.. no crime scene. No physical evidence, the accuser can’t remember where the rape happened, specific dates, her “witnesses” didn’t tell the same story as she did. This was 30ish years ago. Joe Biden, this was back 10-20 years ago.. there’s a video of her mother (Joe’s accuser) calling king asking about what to do.. her ex husband (Joe’s accuser) mentioned her telling him about the incident when he filed for divorce. kavanaugh wrote down almost everything he done in a diary I guess you would call. Nothing matched up with what she said. Goes on and on, need more?

    • Michael williamson | June 15, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      Only difference is the left basically took away due process and went from “innocent until proven guilty” to “guilty until proven innocent” where as in Joe’s case, the media is silent. I don’t remember who it was, but a reporter on CNN (I think) dared to report on the case and he almost got fired for it.

    • Peter Majewski | June 15, 2020 at 10:27 PM | Reply

      The key word is “accused”.Anyone can be accused of anything.

    • Michael williamson | June 15, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      Peter Majewski it’s only when your President Trump or someone in his administration does being “accused” mean you did it even without being proven guilty in court of a law. Double standard at play here.

    • tommy nevils | June 15, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      They are both hypocrites.

  16. Great job Gorsuch!😊 I can’t believe there are judges who think otherwise; especially coming from someone like Clarence Thomas who currently benefits from the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If it weren’t for the blood, sweat, and tears of civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Mr. Thomas wouldn’t have the honor of being a Supreme Court judge. Some civil rights leaders even lost their lives for the freedoms Mr. Thomas currently enjoys. Instead of continuing to help his race, he dishonors them by making it harder for them to vote, easier to be discriminated against, and harder to have access decent healthcare. He’s taking them backwards in a dark place and time. It’s such a slap in the face to those who went through hell in order to help him have a better life. I’ve never seen a stronger example of a self-hatred as I do in Clarence Thomas. It’s truly sad and extremely disappointing. He should be ashamed of himself.

  17. This is still a discussion? In 2020? In America??? This scares me more than anything else!

  18. Let’s deliver one million cans of Coke to Clarence Thomas for old time’s sake, and to honor the very Honorable Professor Anita Hill.

    The People Singing: “The Land of the Freeeeee”

    Fast talking disclosure guy: Land of the free is an ambitious objective, not yet achieved. Side effects may include civil rights, gay rights, crackdown on paramilitary policing, Democratic leadership, progress, civilized society, reduced incarceration, minimum living wage, and healthcare for all. If ranting and confederate flag waving persists please speak to your healthcare professionals. Freedom should not be discussed holding up a 2000 year old rule book infront of a burnt out church

  20. ~. The world is waking up and are tired of being oppressed by these coward “elites”.

      The world happens to be 95% heterosexual. Why do just 9 judges get to decide for 95% of the population? Just plain wrong!
