Remember when those blowhard Democratic Senators ran out of substantive issues (like membership in a Princeton alumni association) to use against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito? They turned to the vague accusation that he never supported the powerless, the underdog, the "little guy."
In the ruling in Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao Do Vegetal, the Roberts Court ruled that a small, powerless, religious group had the right to use hallucinagenic tea in their rituals. The all-powerful U.S. Justice Department lost.
Alito didn´t vote in this one because he wasn´t on the court when the case was heard, but as a First Amendment absolutist, he clearly would have ruled with the majority. We are on the verge of having a regular majority of Justices who actually understand the Constitution.
Alito will support "the little guy" wherever and whenever Constitutional rights are being violated. Oh, well. Democrats can always go back to the Princeton alumni scandal.
