A racist, anti-freedom horror show

Judge Sonia Sotomayor is Il Duce's nominee for the Supreme Court to take the place of that moron David Souter. As one would expect, only the finest legal expert, selected on the basis of merit, not quotas, would be Il Duce's first Court nominee. NOT AT ALL.

Sonia Sotomayer represents all that is wrong with our judicial system. Her demeanor in the courtroom is that of a tyrant and a bully. She is anti-freedom, ruling against both freedom of speech and the Second Amendment.

But the one thing about Sotomayor that stands out? That would be her racism.

Oh, come on, Vulture! You really can't use one throw-away paragraph in one speech to label a person as a racist! But that's the thing: I don't. I couldn't care less about that speech. When I speak of Sotomayor as a racist, I'm talking about more important, more substantial things, like this:

As an undergraduate at Princeton, this nominee to the Supreme Court wanted the government to require the school to hire more Hispanic faculty members. At Yale Law School, she bemoaned a court ruling against racial quotas. She hasn't seen nearly enough affirmative action to please her, and as a judge has repeatedly cited her own special understandings as a Latina as a reason for putting more Hispanics on the bench.

So what's wrong with any of this? Nothing, if all she was doing was calling for an end to ethnic, gender or racial discrimination against people who are imminently qualified as faculty members or judges or whatever. Instead, she was calling for preferential treatment on the grounds that there is something better about one group than another, much the same philosophy once used to justify slavery, lynchings, segregation and all kinds of injustices against blacks in this country.
That's not enough for you? Try this: Sotomayor belongs to La Raza, Spanish for "The Race". Last I heard, excessive racial identity was a prime element of racism. And La Raza is an anti-American organization as well.
La Raza was condemned in 2006 by former U.S. Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., as a radical "pro-illegal immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups calling for the secession of the western United States as a Hispanic-only homeland."

Norwood urged La Raza to renounce its support of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan – which sees "the Race" as part of an ethnic group that one day will reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.
Hey! I have relatives in Aztlan! And they don't speak Spanish! [/sarcasm]

And let us not forget Sotomayor's prominent position in the case of the firefighters denied promotion because no minority candidates passed the test.

With all of the heat generated from that dopey quote from that dopey speech Sotomayor gave in Berkeley, Il Duce's consigliere was called upon to set the ground rules for opposition.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs issued a pointed warning to opponents of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s Supreme Court nomination Wednesday, urging critics to measure their words carefully during a politically charged confirmation debate.
"You have a nice face. It would be a shame if something happened to it..."

Face it, Il Duce has produced exactly the kind of Court nominee Team Elephant was screaming about during the 2008 Elections. Of course, in the interest of fairness, I have to point out that McCommie wouldn't do much better. Maybe we'd get "son of Souter" from him, if we were lucky.
