Protest Chants for the Ages?

RantWoman has been trying to grab moments of levity, real or imagined,  wherever she can find them.  RantWoman also admits to being a bit of a Sitting Quietly / Expectant Waiting sometimes makes one want to go out and Yell" Friend.

Today's image in connection with WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson's victories about the #MuslimBan Executive order in the local federal district court and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals would be chanting in the style of the "U.S.A.!  U.S.A.!

RantWoman thinks this image would be especially heavenly if the people doing the chanting are rainbow-haired anarchists. "Rule of Law! Rule of Law! Rule of Law!"

"Separation of Powers! Separation of Powers!"

um, no, does not scan well.

"Independent Judiciary! Independent Judiciary!"

Also leaves something to be desired as a chant.

On a related note, RantWoman wonders whether potential #scotus and other judicial nominees maybe ought to be just a little queasy. The Orange One, the Nominator in Chief has dissed multiple federal judges in multiple districts and appellate circuits. RantWoman is wondering how one is supposed to feel good about what should be a VERY prestigious recognition if the person nominating one turns around and heaps opprobrium on the position.

Look, RantWoman is in absolutely no danger of being nominated to the federal judiciary, let alone being nominated by the current Nominator in Chief, so RantWoman does not have to worry about possible need to hold her nose. But RantWoman DOES wonder...
