When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died 11 days ago at a West
Texas ranch, he was among high-ranking members of an exclusive
fraternity for hunters called the International Order of St. Hubertus,
an Austrian society that dates back to the 1600s.
After Scalia’s death Feb. 13, the names of the 35 other guests at the
remote resort, along with details about Scalia’s connection to the
hunters, have remained largely unknown. A review of public records shows
that some of the men who were with Scalia at the ranch are connected
through the International Order of St. Hubertus, whose members gathered
at least once before at the same ranch for a celebratory weekend.
Members of the worldwide, male-only society wear dark-green robes
emblazoned with a large cross and the motto “Deum Diligite Animalia
Diligentes,” which means “Honoring God by honoring His creatures,”
according to the group’s website. Some hold titles, such as Grand
Master, Prior and Knight Grand Officer. The Order’s name is in honor of
Hubert, the patron saint of hunters and fishermen.
"Fascism has opened up the depths of society for politics. Today, not
only in peasant homes but also in city skyscrapers, there lives
alongside of the twentieth century the tenth or the thirteenth. A
hundred million people use electricity and still believe in the magic
power of signs and exorcisms. The Pope of Rome broadcasts over the radio
about the miraculous transformation of water into wine. Movie stars go
to mediums. Aviators who pilot miraculous mechanisms created by man’s
genius wear amulets on their sweaters. What inexhaustible reserves they
possess of darkness, ignorance, and savagery! Despair has raised them to
their feet fascism has given them a banner. Everything that should have
been eliminated from the national organism in the form of cultural
excrement in the course of the normal development of society has now
come gushing out from the throat; capitalist society is puking up the
undigested barbarism. Such is the physiology of National Socialism."
Leon Trotsky, "What is National Socialism?"
