Appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to Supreme Court Attacked By Conservative Propagandists & Their Racist Base

Anyway here's a little tune to begin your day.Just a little reminder that The American Crusade known as The Global War on Terror continues . While the officers & politicians & the War Profiteers plot and scheme and talk about the honor & glory of war it is the common soldier who is left to do the fighting & the dying .

President Obama has announced the appointment of Judge Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. She appears to be well qualified . But the angry & hate-filled Conservatives & their Media propagandists are going after her with a vengeance. Ignoring her qualifications they call her " a mere affirmative action pick ".

Conservatives ignoring the facts call Sotomayor a "liberal", "dumb", "obnoxious", a "bully", "has a temper", is "an activist judge" & a" racist" or "reverse racist"- of course according to these wingnuts White Male judges or WASPs it appears are never racist & are always fair in their judgments - they are never ideologically driven & interpret the U.S. constitution in the way that it ought to be- so are they saying slavery should still be acceptable or the Jim Crow Racist Segregation should still be in force & women shouldn't have the rights they have gained over the past 200 years etc.My own suspicion from reading the writings of American conservatives is that they are still upset over the 1954 ruling in Brown v. the board of education & other similar rulings since then which led to the end of the racist policies of Segregation in the Southern States which they believed was sacrosanct . Huckabee refers to her as Maria others claim she is a single mother but in fact she has no children-

Tancredo just sounds like he's repeating Rovian or Republican Talking Points.

Savage calls Sonia Sotomayor incompetent and an "activist liberal judge"
He characterizes the notion of "empathy" as a weakness and being overly "politically correct' rather than being able to see both sides of any case & then decide what the merits of the case are. In Savage's view if a judge dares to side with minorities , blackcs, Hispanics, Gays & Lesbians or the poor rather than with White Upper Class Male Americans then this would be a case of bias. A judge in his view must be pro-business & pro-the status quo and anti-minorities and against the poor and against the rights of alleged criminals etc. This is typical of the conservative pro-status quo & pro-law & order crowd in the U.S. and elsewhere. They don't believe in equal rights though they publicly sometimes pretend to.

And here's another video by The liberal Viewer who shows once again how biased Fox News really is.

The retirement of US Supreme Court Justice David Souter created President Barack Obama's first opportunity to appoint someone to the high court and, as I show in this video, it apparently also created an opportunity to slam potential nominees for Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and her guest Jay Sekulow, chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

and so it goes,
