Obama Nominates Racist to U.S. Supreme Court
by Bill Levinson
“I would hope that a wise white man with his rich experiences in traditional American values would more often than not reach a better conclusion [as a judge] than a Black or Hispanic woman who hasn’t lived that life.” If a male Caucasian made a statement like this, most people would wonder where he kept his sheet, hood, and burning cross. Barack Obama’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court is, however, 100 percent consistent with his membership in an openly racist church, his racist pastor Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, and his open association with other racists and/or anti-Semites like Al Sharpton. Here is what Sonia Sotomayor said at U.C. Berkeley in 2001:
- I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion [as a judge] than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.
That’s strange, Ms. Sotomayor. We always thought a judge’s job was to interpret the law as it is written and, in the case of the U.S. Supreme Court, uphold the Constitution of the United States. We also wonder whether sexists and racial supremacists are capable of carrying out this duty responsibly, and we hope the U.S. Senate has better sense than to confirm this unqualified racist and sexist.
