Oh The Hypocrisy Of These Old White Man In The Republican Party

July 14, 2009

 Jeff Sessions

It is not amazing.

 

It is not a great mystery.

 

It is absolutely nothing new.

 

It is simply a group of people who are terrified at the fact that people who were once viewed as and treated as sub human beings are now rising to positions in power, thus jeopardizing their privileges as white supremacist.

 

As a matter of fact, it is just the same old rotten meat, being rapped up in a different kind of paper, and sold by the racists in the Republican Party, who I watched hypocritically questioning the impartiality of Judge Sonia Sotomayor

 

These ignorant racist in suits, who have been privileged since this country first began, because of the fact that they have been playing the game of life with a deck of cards that have been stacked in their favor, are now questioning the impartiality of Judge Sotomayor, because of some, “biased”, let’s just stop dancing around the word, and just say it, “racist” statements that she had supposedly made in the past.

 

What she said is based on her personal observations and experiences, just like the statements and actions and rulings that have been made by the many white man who came before her.

 

And after a track record of unevenness, unfairness, and just plain racial, class, and sexual discrimination, these same old white man who have used their personal points of views, opinions, and prejudices to make decisions that made certain segments of society 2nd. & 3rd. class citizens in a country where everyone is supposed to have the benefit of equality on their side, are now crying foul because of statements and rulings that were made by Judge Sotomayor.

 

Isn’t it funny how the very same men who would deny so many men, woman, and children who are not like them the opportunity to be free and equal, are now pointing a racist finger at a woman who has been proven to be a moderate, and who has made decisions that have been consistent with those made by the mainstream judicial system in spite of her personal views.

 

It is important for all fair-minded people in America to know that these accusations are not based on facts, but are based on the same standards of  “as long as it benefits me and people like me, then anything goes”. However, if it does not benefit me, or those who are like me, then nothing goes”.

 

The questioning process is not at issue here; they are absolutely necessary for Sotomayor’s Confirmation Hearing.

 

This is a part of the process.

 

However, to the many of the Racist In Suits that make up the Republican Party, (and some in the Democratic Party as well), this is simply an attempt to continue to keep people of color out of positions of power, because of the fears that they (as old corrupt white man) have developed after years of hatred, institutionalized racism, and their many acts of injustices, both public and private that they have imposed upon people who they consider to be lesser human beings than themselves.

 

If personal opinions did not matter on the Supreme Court, then there would not be a need to have 9 judges on the bench.

 

They could save the taxpayers in this country a lot of money by just letting one judge make all of the decisions.

 

Why do they have 9 different judges?

 

It’s because every judge on the Supreme Court Bench has a different opinion, a different point of view, and a different method of deliberation.

 

And where do these differences come from?

 

They come from the fact that the judges of the Supreme Court are human, and their decisions are based on their backgrounds, their upbringings, their opinions, their fears, their prejudices, and everything else that is positive or negative about them as a result of being human.

 

Nine judges are required to balance all of those variables so that a legal decision can accurately be made based on the law as determined by consensus.

 

So to hear someone like Senator Jeff Sessions, who is known to have and acted upon his tendencies towards racism drilling Judge Sotomayor, and questioning her ability to make sound legal decision that are not based on personal opinions, prejudices or biases for one group over another is ludicrous.

Sessions and many of the other racists in suits who mirror him in the Republican Party, are not interested in truth or justice, they are just interested in maintaining the status quo that has benefited them for so long. And by accusing this woman of being what they are, which is racists, they hope to undermine the nomination of another person of color, because this is what they have done for so long, this is what they are doing now, and this is what they will continue to do, as long as we continue to allow them to.

 

I know that many of these racists do not want to admit it but, the times have changed, and the tides have changed.

 

And after over two hundred years of riding the waves of racism into positions of strength, power, and wealth, they are now desperately clinging on to the last vestige of white supremacy and white privilege.

 

They are not really concerned with activist judges, because as I said before, there have been nothing but activist judges on the Supreme Court since it’s formation in 1790, who have made decisions that, either did not benefit people of color or ignored the human injustices that have been inflicted upon people of color for centuries.

 

Now who in their right minds would believe that all of these acts, or failures to act for human justice in 209 years were not based on biases, prejudices, personal opinions, personal points of views, and these people’s backgrounds and upbringings?

 

Only a racist would deny that the Supreme Court has been a “Good Ole Boys Club” for hundreds of years before a Black Man, or a Woman, another Black Man (who is whiter then most white man), and now the first Female Latino Woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court.

 

If the law were truly not based on human emotions and judgments, then there would not be so many firsts at lasts in this damn country.

 

These first, would have come way before they did.

 

There was some bias in the law somewhere for all those years.

 

Cut the crap!

 

Judge Sotomayor will be the First Latino Judge to be appointed to the Supreme Court in its 209-year history.

 

Why?

 

Because in spite of the fact that she has human emotions, opinions biases, and other human elements in her character, just like the many white man have had for so long; she is definitely qualified for the position in every way that the white man have been.

 

And one more thing, I know that your greatest fear is that her love for her people may influence her to do some positive things for her people.

 

Well! Gentleman, you all have been doing things for your people since the country began, even to the detriment of all other people, so get the hell over it.

 

Welcome the First Latino, (Highly Qualified), Judge to the Supreme Court:

 

Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Isn’t It Funny How Credentials Are Not Right Unless The Candidate Is White

May 29, 2009
We've Got Your Backs

We've Got Your Backs

 

Here we go again!

 

Logic has no place when people hate someone because of the way that GOD made them, instead of hating them for the negative bull-shit that they add to their characters after their creation.

 

We heard it all before, and it didn’t work then, and it is not going to work now.

 

But as I said at the beginning, there is no logic or reason possible with a person who hates for no other reason then the fact that someone is not like them.

 

We of course experienced this through the 2 years leading up to the evening of November 4th. 2008, when the nation shut the racist nay Sayers down by changing the face of power in this country in a way that this nation had never experienced in over 230 years.

 

Many of the people who said that it could not happen in America only wished that it could not happen because of the paralyzing fear that they felt inside as a result of the hate and contempt that they felt inside, which they feared would come back to bite them in the ass.

 

And the more hate they had inside, the more fear they had inside.

 

The more people that they had abused, cheated, assaulted, lied on, lied to, and dehumanized in their lifetime that looked like Democratic Presidential Nominee Obama, the more they feared the consequences of his successful election to the Whitehouse.

 

There were all kinds of lies and excuses coming from the mouth’s of these racist who were blinded by hate then, and are still blinded by hate now, and in all probability will be until the day that they die and enter into White Heaven.

 

Of course in a world where intellectual supremacy is fast becoming the perquisite for success as opposed to just the color of one’s skin, this nonsense is becoming less and less effective, and is only used by those of inferior intellects because they cannot adapt to the birth of a new nation; (not the Klan movie), or should I say the rebirth of a nation?

 

We can tell that the people who always oppose the lifting up of people who they are so accustomed to keeping down are of inferior intellect, because of the fact that they are totally out of touch with reality as evidenced by their inability to keep up with the present while looking forward to the future, and by their unwillingness to finally have to actually work at something to be successful. You can also tell by the shoddy workmanship of their faulty logic, artificial reasoning, and their paralyzing fear of revenge on the part of all of the kinds of people that they hate.

 

Unfortunately every time a person of color causes a shift in the paradigm of achievement in this nation, there will be those conservatives; (conservatives meaning: “Let’s Keep It All White”), who will come out of the woodwork and begin a program of lies, misstatements and twisted facts about the person or person’s of color who are being elevated to new levels that have not been obtained by that same type of person before.

 

It happens in all areas of endeavors including, education, sports, banking and finance, entrepreneurship, entertainment, science and many other areas that are important to our society as a whole. And most recently because of the fantastic achievements that people of color have made in politics, this is now a strong target area for these “People” to aim their bull-shit at.

 

The nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court is no different then what the man who nominated her faced before he actually obtained the power by election to do so.

 

The fact that she may become the first Hispanic Justice to the Supreme Court is scaring the shit out of many of thesee people who are afraid that she just may bring about some positive changes for the Hispanic Community, of which she is a member of.

 

You see, its okay for White Men to have power and authority to make things better for their people, which they have done throughout history to the detriment of anybody else, but now that they percieve that there is a chance that they may find themselves on the receiving end of such a propositon, it is now quite a problem.

 

So to all of the “liberals” who are paying close attention, and especially to those who are not, here are few pointers on decoding the bull-shit that the conservatives are putting out there in order to make the confirmation process of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court more difficult then it would be for a white Protestant Male.

 

 

1.      “She is not qualified”. Of course this is a blatant lie. She is as qualified as President Obama is for the position for which he has chosen her for.

2.      “She is a bigot and a racist”. This is laughable considering the fact that the fat bag of wind that made this statement is the premiere racist, bigot and sexist idiot in America today and indeed the most recognized all over the world, Rush Limbaugh. He is the guidepost for every other conservative radio or TV personality that perpetrates verbal frauds on a daily basis. Fraud designed to reshape public opinion in order to fit their limited prejudicial view of this country and the world. Sought of an idiot’s idiot.

3.      “Her name is too hard to pronounce”. A person should not be in politics if they are not studious or verbally adept enough to learn and pronounce the names of people who are different from them. But then again, that is the problem isn’t it? She is different from them.

4.       “Her background will interfere with her ability to make sound judgments concerning important legal issues”. Hey! There have been a majority of White Protestant Males on the Supreme Court bench since it’s creation in 1790 whose background interfered with the decisions that they made. This is why The Emancipation Proclamation, (January 1, 1863), The Civil Rights Movement (1955-1965), The Woman’s Rights, Movement of the early 1900’s and other Human Rights actions had to be taken in order to counteract the decisions made by their backgrounds as White Protestant Males. So after all of those years, now conservatives are concerned with one woman’s background, because she is not a White Protestant Male? What exactly are the conservatives trying to conserve? Answer: An uneven playing field. After 200+years, the first African American Supreme Court Justice, (Thurgood Marshall) was appointed in 1967 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, followed by the second, African American Supreme Court Justice in 1999,Clarence Thomas who is still serving. Sound like progress towards living up to the sacred words in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights to you?

5.      “She is an activist Judge”. They are trying to implant in the minds of anyone who will listen, the implication that “Activist”, like “Liberal”, is a dirty word. All of the judges on the Supreme Court Bench are activist rather for a small group of selfish ass people who think the country consist of them only, or for all of the citizens of the United States of America, which is what the United States of America is supposed to be all about, even though we all know that for centuries, those were just words that had no meaning for many races and classes of people living here.

 

Are we saying confirm this woman without any type of analysis or investigation just because she is Hispanic?

 

No! -It’s an important decision that will have long lasting effects on the direction in which our nation will take in the future.

 

What we are saying is, don’t set back and allow this woman to be treated any differently then all of the White Male Protestants who came before her, The White Male Catholics who came before her, or The (2) African American Males who came before her.

 

And remember! Activists are good to have around when there’s work to be done. And after hundreds of years of just “White Rule”, there is truly much work to be done in order to make America live up to its creed of “Equal Opportunity For All”

 

Remember! Activist, like Community Organizers gets shit done.

 

So do not fall into these traps.

 

This country is a mixture of all kinds of people, which requires that the wealth, power, and authority must be shared by all of the people. Even South Africa has come to recognize this.

 

Is this ideal beyond America’s reach?

 

If it were up to these racist conservatives it would be.

 

Thank GOD this is not the case.
