14 Republicans to Vote to Approve Racist, Incompetent ‘Wise Latina’ Sotomayor?!?
I’m not sure what pisses me off more: the fact that 14 GOP Senators are going to vote to approve of Judge Sonia “Wise Latina” Sotomayor to the US Supreme Court or the fact that some conservatives are quite alright with this.
I’m too damn pissed at BOTH of those issues to gather my emotions and comment rationally on them, so I am glad I came across two comments which echo my thoughts pretty well:
Either she lied to the Senators or her beliefs now are suddenly different from what they have been her entire adult life. The Republicans could have and should have called her a liar to her face and told her that her lack of ethics (lying) disqualifies her for the Supreme Court. Period. If that would have been too harsh they could have disqualified her for any of the following reasons:
-Her membership in La Raza
-Her discriminatory behavior towards white men.
The Republicans should have stood up for us. Instead they caved, as usual. So Obama gets his Hispanic Racist on the Court and the Court moves one step closer to a society where your skin color determines your rights. It’s important to note here that according to Sotomayor, white men have fewer rights than blacks did back unde the seperate but equal days.

Nope, sorry, not gonna be OK with this. It’s the SUPREME COURT. No removal possible. Her views are horrific and the stupidass 14 will join the 8 eternally damned shitheads in the House who voted for cap ‘n’ tax. She will legislate from the bench, and legislate very badly. I submit that this should have been fought hammer and sickle. What the hell are people “saving up the fight” for? Actual gulags? It’s too late by then.

I am really getting sick and damn tired of conservatives accepting the BS unfair playing field on which conservatives/Republicans and liberals/Democrats play. They accept that Democrats can lie, cheat, smear, ridicule to their hearts content with NO consequences whatsoever. YET, when Conservatives or Republicans tell the TRUTH and present FACTS, we are painted as racists, bigots and sexists… and conservatives accept that!??!
WTF. Seriously. W.T.F.
Awesome. Glad to see I’m not the only one who is pissed the fook off here:
I e-mailed the NRSC and invited them to taste my ass. And they scratch their head and balls in wonder… why don’t conservatives donate money to our great cause? I told them I hope a 3rd party rises out of all this back slappin horsesh*t. I’m tired of these good ol boys punching conservatives right in the puss followed by a f*ck you very much.

“Forgot to add: And she lied under oath and she keeps getting overturned AND I bet she doesn’t look good in black.”
What a lot of normal people forget is, lying isn’t lying to these rat-bastards. Lying is actually “revolutionary truth”… as in, it’s perfectly OK to lie as long as you’re advancing your goals while you do it. You may notice that even formerly respectable liberal pundits will defend a lying liar to the end as long as he or she supports the liberal positions being espoused.

Thank you both. And as far as the candy assed view of playing the politics “smart” on this one, bulls**t. It’s that kind of crap that got us where we are today. Stand up and be a statesman fer cryin’ out loud.

F*ckin’ A. EXACTLY:
If you’re worried about pointing out bald-faced lies because you’ll be called a racist, what’s the point of questioning anything at all?

Another good point here by Vic. Let’s see, the GOP spends their time exposing how Sotomayor is an incompetent lying, racist POS, BUT, then, despite that, turn around and vote to appoint her to the US Supreme Court? And that’s called good, smart politics? Give me a freaking fooking break here. That’s called COWARDICE. And is EXACTLY the reason no one freaking respects Republicans. Not the media, not the Left and not conservatives. PERIOD. Give me someone who FIGHTS and calls out the Left, the media and the Democrats on their utterly despicable BS and THAT will be a statesman I will support to the death.
Drew while I agree that they did about all they could in the questioning and she did come across as a liar and an AA incompetant they still should NOT vote for her.
That defeats the entire purpose of making her look stupid and it continues the practice of “playing” nice while your enemy stabs you in the gut and laughs at you.

My sentiments exactly:
See, this is why so many of us feel dispirited, disenfranchised, and without recourse. Those who purport to represent us aren’t fighting back on these poobags. At all. To my knowledge, NO ONE has called her out on her perjury.

Bingo. As I said at the beginning of this post, upon reading DrewM’s post, I was both immensely pissed the hell off and completely dispirited as well. I didn’t know whether to be mad as hell or depressed and broken. And not just because the GOP are a bunch of COWARDS, but the added fact that DrewM and some others think that this was “inevitable” and we should just sit back and accept this status quo once again.
BULLSH*T. ANY GOP member voting ‘yes’ on this racist, incompetent, lying sack of sh*t judge in UNACCEPTABLE. PERIOD. Can they stop her from being approved? No. Fine. That, I accept, because the American people are utter fools for giving the despicable Democrats so much power. BUT, that does not mean that ANY Republican should be voting “YES” for Judge Sonia ‘Wise Latina’ Sotomayor to represent the nation on the United States Supreme Court. Not.at.all. And anyone who does so is a cowardly, despicable POS.
Anyone who points out the fact that someone is a racist, incompetent lying bastard and then supports the promotion of that person has absolutely NO integrity whatsoever. None.
Amen to this:
It’s not just the Rs on the committee, DrewM. You are correct that the questioners did well. But no one outside of those of us who give two sh*ts were even aware that the takedown occurred. To 99% of the country, this story is “First Hispanic (And She’s a GIRL! Who was POOR!) Nominated to SC by The One.” Her actual views are barely out there. The firefighter case alone should have sparked a reawakening of the national debate on AA, but… no. Her mom bought the neighborhood’s first set of encylopedias!
This is where every other national office-holding R should have come into play, not to mention the RNC. Conservatives are horrified by this pick… and we see nothing done about it outside of a few questions. She probably would have been confirmed anyway, but the point is, there was little to no fight on this, just like just about everything else.
Seeing the “conservative” “leadership” rain hellfire down on this nightmare would have 1) thrown a spotlight on her racialist views 2) provided a psycological boost to the base. Make every. single. victory. a Pyrric one for the liberals. They will have to think carefully every time they pile another piece of socialism onto this country. As it is, the less resistance is thrown, the tougher it will get. Again I ask: What are we saving the fight for? Far too late by the time the forced abortions and the reducation camps come barrelling down the pike.
I grow weary of hearing my viewpoint articulated only by people who have radio audiences but no power beneath the Capitol dome.

Exactly. There is no victory here at all. Anyone who thinks so has not been paying attention whatsoever the last 8 years:
“No, she doesn’t mean it but it will make for some nice issue adds in the future.”
Which ads will never, ever run. Because they’ll get the Repubs called racist. Which is gonna happen anyway, facts, evidence, and logic be damned. And around the circle we go again.
Not that you’re wrong, Drew; no, there’s not a lot we can do, she’s gonna get in anyway. But anybody who thinks any of this will stop Obamandias, King of Kings, from nominating whatever abomination he wants to for any position whatever needs to take another look at the raving lunatic he’s named as “science” czar. He’s securely in the driver’s seat, and for every weak-tea consolation-prize poll we cite saying Duh Peepul don’t like it, he can always gin up five more that say otherwise.

Excellent point here by CJ. This is exactly MY point when I am pissed off at conservatives who continue to accept the status quo and accept that Republicans can’t do anything. If WE are not willing to fight, then how do we expect Republicans to fight? The fact is that if we don’t start actively fighting all this BS, then we’re going to continue to have spineless GOP representatives curl up and die on all the issues. It starts with we, conservatives. And it frustrates me to no end that some conservatives just do.not.get.it.
I think a lot of people here have it backward: members of Congress REACT to culture/conventional wisdom, not the other way around. It’s bottom up. The GOP will aggressively challenge left wing minority public officials when WE make it safe for them to do so.
Democrats wouldn’t have tried to bork Bork as a ‘threat to civil rights’ if they didn’t think they had adequate cover beyond Capitol Hill. Right or wrong, the storyline of the throw-back Jim Crow bigot hiding behind the “constructionist” mask provided that cover. Republican members of Congress will get the nerve to take on left-wing minorities when conservatives outside the Beltway make it safe for them to do so.

DrewM, that is indeed the smart way to play it in the traditional political system– but my opinion is that system is crumbling. I truly think we’re on the leading edge of a different era now, and in this era we fight. Everything.
I also think that there’s a difference between “reacting” and “framing the debate.” We drop the AA bomb and the perjury bomb, and the issue becomes not her PC credentials, but the worldview of the administration. I think that’s the key reason why Barry has any support at all — too many people are inclined to believe the best of him (I idiotically did during the primaries) and aren’t truly aware of what he’s really trying to do here.
