The club was set up to rally against the ‘left-wing tendencies’ of his professors while attending a Jesuit all-boys preparatory high school near Washington D.C.
The name may be inconvenient for a Supreme Court nominee facing a tough confirmation battle. However it also shows the depth of Gorscuch’s right-wing credentials – and his penchant for mischief while attending his exclusive prep school in the 1980s.
The yearbook described the ‘Fascism Forever Club’ as an anti-faculty student group that battled against the ‘liberal’ views of the school administration.
A club to fight left-wing tendencies at a Jesuit school? Awesome!
As for the problematic name… who cares?
Edit: A double who cares as it turns out it might not even be true! From Hot Air. (h/t centipedes)
Gorsuch was known to spar with students and even some of his teachers at Georgetown. According to America Magazine, he was occasionally teased by people and called a “conservative fascist” for his views. The Fascism Forever club mentioned in his yearbook was apparently just a joking reference to his status as the outspoken conservative on campus.
