Here is the link to the Judge Sonia Sotomayor's 2001 address to the 'Raising the Bar' symposium at the UC Berkeley School of Law:
This is where she said:
"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."
Our Kenyan-Indonesian-Muslim President said this about people who find above sentence abhorring and claim it is blatant racism that disqualifies her from being considered as a Supreme Court Justice:
"some in Washington who are attempting to draw old battle lines and playing the usual political games, pulling a few comments out of context to paint a distorted picture of Judge Sotomayor's record."
Well, let's ignore the "draw old battle lines and playing the usual political games" line for the time being. You see only the democRATS are entitled to politics of personal destruction to stop highly qualified people who are nominated by Republican presidents. Let's follow Obama's advice of not "pulling a few comments out of context" and read the whole address.
What do we find? Judge Sotomayor is someone who is obsessed with identity politics. This is a person who was born in the United States of America to immigrant parents. This is a person who does not appreciate what the United States of America provided for her and her family. Just like Barack Hussein Obama who change his Americanized name Barry to Barack to accentuate his "blackness" and "African heritage", Sonia Sotomayor decided not to be an American but "Puerto Rican", "latina", or more tortured "Newyorkrican".
Read the whole thing folks. Pay attention to the context as Obama instructs us to do. It is all about race, ethnicity, identity politics. This is a woman obsessed about identity politics. Worse yet she is hostile towards groups of people based on their identity. Who cares about a "latina voice" on the bench folks? We need wise judges who apply the law not bend it out of shape to fit their agenda. It does not matter who they are, what their gender is, where their parents originally came from, what kind of food preferences they have. We need people who respect and uphold the Constitution of The United States.
This woman chose to give this address to future hispanic lawyers and judges in one of our universities. She decided to talk about having a "latina voice", "hispanic voice", "minority voice", "female voice" on the courts. What the hell does that mean? So if you are a party in a litigation and the other party is a latina, you really do not want Judge Sotomayor presiding. Just based on this speech she gave, based on the totality of the speech not by "pulling a few comments out of context" she should be asked to recuse herself when the case involves minorities. Heck, she wouldn't even be allowed to be a juror in any case that involves minorities and she is nominated to the SCOTUS?
