Brace yourself for an onslaught of vile propaganda from the “living Constitution” crowd after President Obama today nominated the manifestly unqualified, politically correct, leftist judge Sonia Sotomayor to be an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Sotomayor’s main qualifications are that she is a woman and that she is a Latina (of Puerto Rican ancestry).
Sotomayor also has ties to the race-obsessed left-wing grievance group/shakedown operation known as the National Council of La Raza, which Kevin Mooney profiled in the December 2007 Foundation Watch.
Ed Whelan writes at National Review Online that Sotomayor gave a speech that became a law review article in which she expressed her “hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life” when each is acting as a judge “in deciding cases.”
There is not much room for misinterpretation here. This is a racist statement. Sotomayor is arguing that her race gives her unique insights and makes her a better judge.
Don’t expect to hear a peep about this from the mainstream media though.
But just imagine if the president had selected a white man who wrote that it was his “hope that a wise man of Anglo-Saxon descent with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a Puerto Rican female who hasn’t lived that life” when each is acting as a judge “in deciding cases.”
Imagine how the liberals and the race grievance industry would howl.
On TV liberal pundits such as CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin are already tripping over each other to praise the Sotomayor pick. It’s only going to get worse.
