I've said it before and I'll say it again: If it weren't for double standards, the Dems would have no standards at all. Take for example Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor and the statements she has made about race:
|"I would 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 ..."|
Now, let's say the situation were reversed and a generic white man said, "I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a latina woman..."
Would not the leftist Dems in Congress be screaming that this generic white man was a "racist" and therefore should not be considered for the highest court in the land?
Absolutely they would. So, why aren't they applying the same standard to Sotomayor?
Because the Dems are hypocrites. Ditto for any Republican who supports Sotomayor without calling her on her racist remarks.
What else has Sotomayor done that's racist?
Read this from Sean O'Donnel of the Baltimore Republican Examiner:
|[W]hen firefighter Frank Ricci – the lead plaintiff in Ricci v. DeStefano – claimed racial discrimination by being denied a promotion and appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (after losing in the federal district court), Judge Sotomayor denied his claim. The Washington Post wrote that Sotomayor’s decision “was devoid of legal reasoning for affirming the decision of a lower district judge, a curious dismissal for a case that represents significant questions of law and the Constitution."|
Even the left-leaning Washington Post can see the racial sentiments of Sotomayor.
|When Sotomayor served as a judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, she was a member of National Council of La Raza – the largest national Latino advocacy and civil rights group in the country. NCLR has been criticized for advocating separatist views and has been accused of encouraging illegal immigration. Former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) has described NCLR as “a Latino KKK without the hoods or nooses.”|
Any one of these situations would completely disqualify a white man. We should hold Sotomayor to the same exact standard. Anyone who does not is nothing more than an arrogant hypocrite.
