Letter calls for Amy Coney Barrett to be expelled from Rhodes College’s Hall of Fame

Earlier this year, Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined with four other members of the United States Supreme Court in ruling that there is no constitutionally protected right to abortion.

Barrett is a graduate of  Rhodes College, and in response to her decision, some of the justices fellow alumni are calling for her to be removed from the school’s Hall of Fame. 

“Biggest threats”

According to Breitbart, that demand was laid out in a letter sent this month to Rhodes College President Jennifer Collins and Director of Community Standards Richard Adams.

The letter took issue with testimony the justice gave during her confirmation hearing regarding Roe v. Wade, calling it “disingenuous and misleading.”

The letter’s signatories went on to accuse Barrett of being “one of the biggest current threats to our fundamental rights, the stability of our nation, and our democracy.”

“Moreover, as Rhodes alumni who pledged the same fealty to ‘truth, loyalty, and service’ as she did, we find her actions to be a clear — and perhaps history’s most destructive to date — violation of the Honor Code we all hold dear,” they continued.

The letter went on to point out how being included in the Hall of Fame “is an honor bestowed on seniors who have contributed, in some significant way, to the life of the College.”

“Simply being one of our most famous alumni is not a sufficient reason for the College to continue honoring someone thus who has very publicly breached the most fundamental Rhodes values,” it insisted.

Others targeted

Breitbart noted that the call for Barrett’s removal from her undergraduate college’s Hall of Fame comes less than two months after a similar demand was made of Justice Clarence Thomas.

In June, a petition was submitted to George Washington University Law School which called for Thomas to be stripped of his teaching position there.

However, not all critics of conservative Supreme Court justices have been content to target them via letters, as loud protests have been organized outside of their homes.

In June, a man was charged with attempted murder after he showed up outside of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house armed with a gun and a knife. The individual later told law enforcement that he was there to kill the justice.
