2021 Man of the Year: Justice Stephen Breyer

What does Supreme Court justice Stephen Breyer have in common with his former colleague, the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

Breyer may not boast an unhinged cult of leftwing worshippers, but like Ginsburg, he is heroically frustrating the desires of Soros flunky and 2020 Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year Brian Fallon with his refusal to clear the way for a younger and more able-bodied lib on the High Court.

Instead, Fallon’s efforts to intimidate the 83-year-old into a retirement community—he chartered a billboard truck to circle the Supreme Court for weeks with a simple message, "Breyer, retire"—have fallen on deaf ears, and Breyer seems intent on honoring Ginsburg’s legacy by paving the way for another Amy Coney Barrett.

The justice may give the appearance of a wimpy nerd, it's true. But he's a tough son of a bitch. This is a man who's survived three cycling accidents and ten years in a workplace with Sonia Sotomayor. Hillary house boys like Fallon don't rank with the challenges this brave man endures.

Instead of retiring, Breyer spoke out against the leftwing push to pack the Supreme Court (Brian, bodied, yet again), and he found time to put out a new book defending the Supreme Court against butthurt leftwing crybabies like … Brian Fallon.

You either die a villain, or live long enough to become a hero to the Federalist Society. So congratulations, Your Honor. In recognition of his integrity and with good wishes for another decade of infuriating the libs, Justice Stephen Breyer is a Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year.
