While in high school, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, founded a student group called the Fascism Forever Club while in an elite high school, the Daily Mail reported.
The 49-year-old, who has already received sweeping approval from conservatives, started the club his freshman year at elite all-boys school Georgetown Preparatory near Washington, D.C.
According to the nominee’s yearbook, Gorsuch served as president of the group until he graduated.
“In political circles, our tireless President Gorsuch’s ‘Fascism Forever Club’ happily jerked its knees against the increasingly ‘left-wing’ tendencies of the faculty,” said the yearbook.
Also in the yearbook is a young Gorsuch photographed while reading William F. Buckley’s 1959 conservative heavy read Up From Liberalism.
In addition to the Fascism club, Gorsuch listed himself as “President of the Yard, Student Government,” president of the “Committee to Reform the Beast, and called himself a 'Lousy Spanish Student.'”
Georgetown Prep is known for being one of the most elite private schools in the country and has boasted many high profile students, including several Kennedies.
“We are proud to have a son of Georgetown Preparatory School, a Catholic, Jesuit school founded the same year the United States Supreme Court was established, nominated to the nation’s highest court. All of us at Prep send our prayers and best wishes,” the school’s president, the Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, said on the school website.
