Quin Hillyer on fighting the abomination nomination of Sonia Sotomayer to the Supreme Court:
Judge Sotomayor's unfitness for the high court is abundantly manifest.
No non-ethnic white nominee, under any circumstances, could possibly be confirmed if she had uttered, in a formal speech, anything close to the converse of Sotomayor's statement that Latina judges by their very background and nature, including perhaps "physiological" differences, would be more likely to reach "correct" decisions than would a white male.
Especially since it was not a mere throwaway line, but instead amply defended throughout her speech, the statement is so racist in nature that it is utterly disqualifying.
Combine it with a whole adult lifetime spent in pursuit of such racialist (if not racist) aims -- approving blatant discrimination against white firefighters, opining that states have no right to bar imprisoned felons from voting if the prison populations are disproportionately non-white, and a whole host of other outrageous stances -- and the only conclusion is that all reasonable senators of both parties should oppose Sotomayor by every legitimate means.
