Martha-Ann Alito, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, complained about the Pride flag, ranted about “feminazis,” and explained a flag design that she has been creating in her head in anticipation of when her husband is “free of this nonsense,” according to undercover audio released by a journalist and documentary filmmaker Monday on X.

“I want a Sacred Heart of Jesus flag, because I have to look across the lagoon at the Pride flag for the next month,” Alito griped at one point.

Alito’s comments were recorded undercover June 3 at the Supreme Court Historical Society’s annual dinner by Lauren Windsor, who was playing the role of a conservative activist.

A bit later, when Windsor lamented how “they’re persecuting you, and you’re like a convenient stand-in for anybody who is religious,” Alito reiterated her aforementioned mantra.

Look at me. I’m German, from Germany. My heritage is German. You come after me, I’m going to give it back to you. And there will be a way—it doesn’t have to be now—but there will be a way they will know. Don’t worry about it,” she said, before quoting the Bible.

    Gee, I wonder what kind of “German heritage” exactly she’s talking about.

      She will show it soon enough with a flag that i’m pretty sure is already hanging somewhere in her house

        The advantage of that particular flag is that there’s no way to hang it upside-down.

      It probably won’t be hard to find out what her family background is. Some reporter will likely get on that

        On one hand I don’t believe in punishing people for their ancestors. On the other hand I don’t think her family ever left that party

      You’d think more press would be about that wouldn’t ya. And yet - gestures to a lot of nothing

    I grew up in on the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland dominated by many German families (fancy Dutch vs the plain Dutch aka Amish) and I’ve never heard any shit like that. Not even from the straight up racist ones. Crazy.
