Imagine a white male conservative making the same comments that Judge Sonia Sotomayor made:
A wise White man with his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a Latina female,”
The mainstream media (old media) would have a field day recounting how racist Republicans are. It would be nonstop media coverage not seen since Trent Lott’s infamous statements.
Now here are Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s comments. Keep in mind that when she said these comments that she was dead serious:
A wise Latina woman with her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male,”
To refute President Obama’s claim that it was a slip of the tongue, she repeated almost the very same words back in 1994. So the canard by President Obama is false, or in layman’s terms a flat-out lie.
Not to mention that Judge Sonia Sotomayor is a member of the National Council of La Raza, a militant and racist Latino organization which is also affiliated with an even more racist organization, MEChA.
I remember back in college in Tucson when I attended the University of Arizona, I would have long discussions with many cohorts from MEChA into the wee hours of the morning about the goals of MEChA. They were unrepentent racists, nationalists, anarchists that want to break up the United States for “Aztlan” or “Republica del Norte“. No matter how I would argue with them and about their tactics, they want to “reclaim” the land by whatever means necessary. With absolutely no compulsion. Needless to say that I stopped spending my valuable time with, ie, I never joined. In fact ALL of my latino friends disengaged from their activities because of their disgust with their racism towards “whites”.
Imagine a white conservative having an affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan. You wouldn’t have heard apologetic remarks from our president along the lines of “misspoke” and “poor” choice of words now would you?
