Mistaken Identity: People Angry at Supreme Court Decision Vent at Blog

The Supreme Court issued a contentious 5-4 decision at the end of its term Monday, decreeing that Hobby Lobby — and by extension any other "closely held" family company — did not have to pay for employee contraception under the Affordable Care Act.

Furious at the decision, many Twitter users took to the service to express their rage. The Supreme Court has no Twitter account — but try telling that to the activists who tweeted at SCOTUSblog, an independent and highly respected news site that covers the court, as if it were the court itself.



SCOTUSblog decided to have a little fun with the mistake, responding to and reposting more than a dozen outraged tweets and counting:
We thought blogging seemed very 21st century. MT @Iiuslep: @SCOTUSblog want to obliterate any progressive acheivement of 20th century.
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Failure of democracy. MT @Rockinwil: Time to do away with the @SCOTUSblog since they are no longer representing citizens of the US.
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
But you complete us. MT @stevenwishnoff: @SCOTUSblog You disgust me.

You are not the 1st & won’t be the last @JayRooTheDee: everyone should tweet @SCOTUSblog and tell them what we think of their misogyny.
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Thank God RT @aclery: @Pontifex please help United States #women & tell @SCOTUSblog that denying health care because of sex is dehumanizing.
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Or eating the cheap Kung Pao Chicken MT @NYCPainter1: Of all the bad decisions @SCOTUSblog made the last few years, #HobbyLobby is the worst
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Least we could do. MT @HeathNOLA: @SCOTUSblog oh they can still get coverage? How generous of you.
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Lost our copy, apologies. MT @opinali: @SCOTUSblog today you have f@cked up real hard. Go read the f@cking First Amendment again, OK?
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Um, call your ISP? RT @controlmemore: @SCOTUSblog kicked down my front door and stole my freedom. What do I do now?????
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Come at us, bro MT @mazurslovedogs: @SCOTUSblog manages to screw up or endanger everyone’s life. Maybe someone needs to discuss impeachment!
— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 30, 2014
Even these hilarious responses didn't dissuade several Twitter users from believing the account speaks for the Supreme Court. (One later claimed she did so because @SCOTUSblog has a "verified" account.)
The passive aggressive way @SCOTUSblog is answering right now is horrible considering the position they just put women in. Not okay.

Have y'all seen what @SCOTUSblog is tweeting? #MyGovernmentIsBeingPassiveAggressive #Awkward

A PSA for all those offended by the decision: you can reach the Supreme Court using old-fashioned technology. Call the court offices at 202-479-3000, or send a letter to the following address:

Supreme Court of the United States
1 First Street, NE
Washington, DC 20543
Or if you want to vent on Twitter, how about the company that brought the case in the first place?
Today #SCOTUS has granted a landmark victory for #religiousfreedom, ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. More info: Home | The Hobby Lobby Case
