Judge Sotomayor embodies all that is wrong with the hard-left elite that currently has the shrillest voice in the postrational West. She believes in abusing her office to advance social policy but, as is now the norm among liberal intellectuals, shrouds it in lofty and polysyllabic pseudo-legal logorrhea and thus escapes being caught out on it. Except that sometimes the cameras are rolling when she has forgotten to put on the mask:
This woman does not believe in logic or rationality. Her approach to life and the law is all feelings--her feelings, to be sure. She is a slave of the false religion of Diversity Politics and worships at the shrine of Postmodernist Waffle. There is no reason to believe she will interpret the law as it is written--despite what Pres. Obama said in the piece of bromide he served up to the press as an introduction of Sotomayor. She will rule in favor of the Hard Left's favorite causes at every turn: unlimited, tax-funded abortion, federal recognition of gay marriage, more rights for labor unions, greater equality for minorities and lesser equality for white males. On that last point (who remembers George Orwell?), note this statement by Sotomayor:
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. (New York TimesMay 14, 2009
This woman is a disgrace to the bench and her nomination is intellectually dishonest. Considering that she has been reversed numerous times by the Supreme Court, Republicans must do all they can to prevent her confirmation. She is so dangerous to the foundation of this country that even a filibuster is justified.
