Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson made a head-scratching analogy to suggest a hypothetical photographer wishing to create an authentic reenactment of a scene from the movie It’s a Wonderful Life would be engaging in racial discrimination.

The argument, made earlier this month in a case involving a web designer who opposes creating a same-sex wedding site due to their religious beliefs, left some social media users completely baffled.

Jackson initially wondered aloud about a vintage Santa-themed shoot with only white customers, then pivoted to suggest an all-white It’s a Wonderful Life photo shoot would be equally discriminatory.

“I want to do video depictions of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ and knowing that movie very well, I want to be authentic, and so only white children and families can be customers for that particular product,” she began.

“Everybody else can, I’ll give to everybody else I’ll sell them anything they want, just not the ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ depictions,” Jackson continued.

“I‘m expressing something, right? For the purposes of that speech. I can say anti-discrimination laws can’t make me sell ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ packages to non-white individuals.”

Reminder that this genius is a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Ketanji Brown Jackson Ripped Over It’s a Wonderful Life Analogy

Ah, the perils of selecting somebody to the highest court in the land based exclusively on their gender and skin color.

Refusing to sell items featuring one particular race to a person of another race would have no basis in religious freedom as the same-sex marriage argument would.

And on what planet would it be “authentic” to the movie to only sell the photos to white customers?

An “authentic” It’s a Wonderful Life photo shoot might also feature a depiction of Lillian Randolph, a prolific black actress whose best-known role was in the movie.

The Heritage Foundation’s Roger Severino mocked Ketanji Brown Jackson’s It’s a Wonderful Life analogy as “beyond outlandish and something only someone steeped in critical race theory would come up with.”

“Why must critical race theory wreck absolutely everything? Even George Bailey? Really?” Severino added.

“I can’t say I understand her point,” wrote Fox News media editor Scott Whitlock.

We’d be willing to bet she doesn’t understand the point either.

This is the same woman who, during her confirmation hearing, could not define what a woman is.

“Can you define the word ‘woman?'” asked Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).

“Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t,” Jackson replied adding, “I’m not a biologist.”

Thankfully though, she is a racist movie critic.

Conservative members of the Supreme Court seemed to side with the web designer who felt she should not be compelled to create same-sex wedding sites.

CNN reports that Justice Neil Gorsuch argued “a businessperson’s objection would not be based on the status of the same-sex couple, but instead, the message the businessperson did not want to send.”

Justice Amy Coney Barrett, meanwhile, told a lawyer for the designer that her work being “custom” is her “strongest ground.”

Also during her confirmation hearing, Ketanji Brown Jackson said she doesn’t “quite remember the basis for the Dred Scott opinion,” perhaps the most famous of all Supreme Court cases.

President Biden has described Jackson as “extremely qualified, with a brilliant legal mind,” despite choosing her chiefly because of her race and gender.
