Gay Student Who Confronted Justice Scalia Speaks Out: VIDEO

Hosie

Princeton University Student Duncan Hosie '16, who confronted Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia about why he equates laws banning sodomy with those barring man-on-animal sex and murder, appeared on MSNBC's The Last Word on Tuesday night to talk about the confrontation and what he thought of Scalia's response

Hosie said he was nervous about asking the question:

"I wanted to ask him are those things really necessary to make his point...he didn't really address that question....I thought the response in the room was excellent...I think he was polite and cordial in how he responded. I don't think his response was accurate...I think his response was absurd in many aspects."

Professor Jonathan Turley also appeared on the segment, calling Scalia's commentary "troubling" considering the cases before the court.

  1. I taught high school for 35 years and I have to say the Duncan is the most mature looking and sounding young man that I have ever seen. He is very impressive!

  2. Scalia is one of the most dangerous crackpot/thugs in America. He do better in Vatican City. He doesn't belong here, certainly. His sense of "morality" is a Bronze-Age relic...more suited to "the old country".

  3. Handsome, articulate, intelligent - how come guys like Duncan aren't sitting on the Supreme Court? I LOVED this guy and he's just a freshman. We must continue to put pressure on the Supreme Court and especially on Chief Roberts to compel this idiot Scalia to cease and desist speaking out on such cases. The GOP will and are citing Scalia repeatedly and Scalia is building his own Republican fan base by doing so. He should be reigned in and in this case, Chief Roberts, if he has the power, should force Scalia (because of his outspoken anti-gay statements) to recuse himself.

  5. (Sorry, did not mean to post that twice. Hate it when you post and just sit there so long and then believe something happened and it didn't get posted - so you hit that submit button a second time and crap - you've posted the message twice. I'll try and keep that to a minimum.)
