SCOTUS — Scalia’s Gay Marriage Dissent, In 12 Perfect Gifs

Be honest, if someone had a camera on Scalia as he wrote his dissent in response to the recent SCOTUS ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, he probably would have been sticking his fingers in his ears and yelling, “LA LA LA LA, I can’t hear you!” If ever there were a more outrageously angry dissent, you’d be hard-pressed to find it. Peppering his write-up with phrases like “robs the People of the most important liberty” and an opinion lacking even a thin veneer of law,” the SCOTUS Justice made sure we all knew that he was totally not a part of this huge ruling that will likely forever change the landscape of the American Dream™. 

In case you haven’t read Scalia’s epic meltdown or are having a hard time understanding the lofty language, here’s a basic breakdown of what he wrote, translated into perfect gif-form.
