Federal judge Sonia Sotomayor passes Obama’s liberal empathy test so he’s decided to nominate her as the Supreme Court judge to replace David Souter. From National Review who examined her bench records:
Judge Sotomayor is a liberal judicial activist of the first order who thinks her own personal political agenda is more important that the law as written. She thinks that judges should dictate policy, and that one’s sex, race, and ethnicity ought to affect the decisions one renders from the bench…
She has an extremely high rate of her decisions being reversed, indicating that she is far more of a liberal activist than even the current liberal activist Supreme Court.
Sonia Sotomayer highly favors reverse racism, or as it’s come to be known, Affirmative Action. One of her most high profile cases included Ricci v. Destefano, in which several New Haven firefighters were denied promotions due to “a lack of minorities” among those who passed the tests, including Frank Ricci who suffers from dyslexia and had spent 8 to 13 hours a day studying for the exam. You can review the details here, but Sotomayer sided with New Haven’s decision to deny these firefighters a promotion.
Of course, anybody who rejects Sotomayer will be seen as racist or sexist, although we conservatives could give a crap about her skin color or her genetalia. It’s always the left that’s hung up on your pigment or what you have between your legs, as said by Sotomayer herself here:
In 2001, Sonia Sotomayor, an appeals court judge, gave a speech declaring that the ethnicity and sex of a judge “may and will make a difference in our judging.”
“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 who hasn’t lived that life,” said Judge Sotomayor, who is now considered to be near the top of President Obama’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees…
The judge “empathizes” with Obama because Obama, like the rest of the leftists, purely play in identity politics. That of course can only happen if you’re one who believes in increasing the size of government and follows the leftist tenets of abortion on demand, class warfare, wealth distribution, and giving Constitutional rights to terrorists and illegal aliens. Miguel Estrada and Alberto Gonzalez, although they too are Hispanic, believe in none of those things, so they received the treatment that they did from the drive by media.
Any Hispanic nominated by Bush who believes in capitalism, preserving American culture, and who is pro-life would receive this treatment by the lamestream media.
