(TheConservativeNews.org) – If you’re familiar with the Constitution and the conversations surrounding it, you’ll know just how contentious they can be. Throughout American history, scholars have argued fiercely about how the document’s various provisions should be enacted. However, any reader can see freedom is one of the central principles of our Constitution, and we can all agree that our freedoms are currently restricted more than they’ve ever been before.

Justice Samuel Alito of the US Supreme Court has landed himself in hot water in some corners for making this observation. On November 12, 2020, he made a speech to the Federalist Society in which he stated COVID-related movement restrictions had created a “constitutional stress test.” The justice later claimed many of the things he said during this speech were based closely on his court rulings.

As an example, Alito highlighted Nevada’s problematic ruling that imposed less severe restrictions on casinos than on churches in May 2020. On Sunday, January 31, Alito remarked to USA Today that he was “not surprised” at the fact some people had objected to his comments.

As an outspoken conservative, Alito is no stranger to criticism. His lack of fear in the face of backlash like this is highly commendable. America is in dire need of more figures willing to speak their mind truthfully.
