Limbaugh on Sotomayor: A ‘reverse racist,’ like Obama

Media Matters, the liberal blogging site that monitors conservative dialogue, is the first we know of to post audio on Rush Limbaugh’s judgment today on Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Says Limbaugh:

“Do you think we should go to the mat stopping Sotomayor? Do you think we ought to go to the wall to oppose her? And I said, “Absolutely we should.” Once again an opportunity to draw the distinct contrast that exists between conservatives and those in the Republican party to President Obama.

“I doubt that Sotomayor can be stopped. She should be — she is a horrible pick. She is the antithesis of a judge. By her own admission and in her own words, she has been overturned 80 percent by the Supreme Court. She may as well be on the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals given all the times she’s been overturned…..”

And in another clip:

“Here you have a racist. You might want to soften that and you might want to say a reverse racist.

“And the libs of course say, the minorities cannot be racists, because they don’t have the power to implement their racism. Well, those days are gone, because reverse racists certainly do have the power to implement their power.

“Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist, and now he’s appointed one -— you getting this, AP? -— Sonia Sotomayor, to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Rush is right. I hope the right holds up her latina arse like the lefties did Estrada. What is good for the goose, right?

I live in a state full of conservatives who can whine like no one else can, I think the tissue may be needed even more than the money.

This woman has had so many of her decisions overturned that is
almost laughable but more so it is just sad.
Bork, who had NO DECISIONS OVERTURNED is railroaded and
I know that is too much for all the liberals to digest and too factual as well.
Yet the spineless left will stand and celebrate as the empty suit has appointed
an empty mind to the highest court in the land. The same court that has
refuted her decisions time and time again.

With Roman Catholic-buried “Lutheran” Rehnquist and Roman Catholic-clan-Day O’Connor replaced by kindred Roman Catholics Alito and “Roberts,” the SCOTUS as it is presently constituted is a stained and illegal body having “legitimized” the patently unconstitutional ‘Bush v. Gore’ (Viz. Breyer dissent and the Constitution: 9/11, waterboarding to coerce confessions of 9/11, et al), so Sotomayer’s being reversed by it is no knock against her.

After Obama’s “perfect pitch” at Arlington on Memorial Day, my hope is this is Our President’s gracefully proving to all Americans, in Judge Sotomayor, that Roman Catholics can be fully American too, unlike the five fascists presently led by Scalia who were Treason’s handmaidens.

Rush is worried that she’s prejudiced against obese drug-addicted homosexual sex tourists.

Don’t worry so much, Rush. At least she doesn’t care if you’re gay.

She might look down her nose at all that pedophilia, though.

She mocked the judicial system with her recent comments at Duke University, saying that ‘appeals court is where law is made’…America should DIS BAR her for that alone…what an arrogant biotch…

Bitter, she should be DIS BARRED? Do you know how our judicial system works?

Case law (also known as decisional law or judicial precedent) is the general term for the principles and rules of law set forth in judicial opinions from courts of law. Case law incorporates courts’ decisions from individual cases and encompasses courts’ interpretations of statutes, constitutional provisions, administrative regulations and, in some cases, law originating solely from the courts. Case law is often published in print law reports or reporters (and increasingly on court websites) to establish precedent – rules to apply in future court decisions dealing with similar situations.

For countries with a common law legal system, such as in the United Kingdom, United States, and most of the Commonwealth of Nations, case law is a major source of law. In general, courts in common law countries treat the decisions of higher appellate courts as normative – laying down rules that should, or in some cases must, be used to decide similar legal disputes (called “binding precedent”). In countries with legal systems that follow the civil law tradition derived from Roman law, however, the courts are not strictly bound by rules and principles from case law.

Hey Y’all:

If anybody in the world has any sense they should know that Rush Limbaugh is a demogouge and a racist. For him to call Ms. Sotomayor and President Obama “reverse racists” is like “a pot calling a kettle black”. All of this man’s comments are race related. No matter what it is. Today it is Ms. Sotomayor.

Racism is a mental disease. I am glad that I not have it. This disease distorts your sense of reality and gives individuals a “false sense of security”. Those who have it try to spread it to all that listens. They rail, rail, rail about about the progress of others as being an offense to themselves. They feel that they are the “supreme judge” of life and character, on their racist terms, as if they are God himself. Those who follow them are destined for eternal damnation by God due to their continued efforts to verbally and physically harms God’s children through their “demonic devises” (i.e., radio, political party, etc.). God will deal with this kind of ilk in our later days because there are “tares among the wheat” and those tares will be uprooted by God in the real “JUDGEMENT DAY”. Therefore, be real careful of who you follow, no matter what party they are with, how popular their cohorts made them, or how much money they have. “Judge the tree by the fruit it bears”. The only fruit that Rush Limbaugh bears is racial hate and bigotry. If that is your leader,
MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL. This man and those like him need helsp. They hide themselves behind the American flag and do not have a clue what America is about due to thier misguided beliefs.

Barry, I have a clue that America was not founded on Socialistic principles. GOD will deal with everyone but for now “All Hail Obama”. If you are white and Christian I’ll see you in camp.

TimO. What the heck being white and Christian have to with anything. We worship an invisible God who we worship in “SPIRIT AND TRUTH” and not in color and nationalities. If anyone thinks otherwise, I am very sorry to say will not be in Jesus’ camp. Our God is not racist. He does not believe in the color of your skin. He is not an “idol worshiper”: those who “worship” what they see with their eyes-including the color of your skin. Do not worship the color of your skin. That is the first trap of the “DEVIL”. Be careful what you worship. I hope to see you in Jesus’ camp where color of skin or nationality does not matter, but your belief in the scriptures and the invisible God Jehovah does.

Barry, The camp I refer to is the government internment camp for those who do not bow to the words and whim of the great Chairman Obama. I know that the Jesus camp is open to all who repent and acknowledge Jesus as Saviour. Sorry for the confusion.

[...] talk show giant Rush Limbaugh said something similar on Tuesday, after the Sotomayor nomination: “Here you have a racist. You might want to soften that [...]

TimO, you just exposed why your party keeps getting taken to the woodshed these days. President (say it with me) Obama would have never been elected without the help of good white christians. And there are blacks who disagree with him. Until you figure out this is now deeper than color you and your party are doomed to rot in your own outdated narrow mindedness….regardless of whatever valuable “ideals” you uphold.

Stop blaming the media, and stop blaming the terrorists for everything, you guys are digging your own coffins.

TimO, the only internment camp is the one at Guantanamo for all those who disagreed with the right wing all mighty “W”. He’s called “W” so he can spell his name.

It continues to confound me that liberals attack the person not the ideology. IF you will do your research, you will find the basis for conservative concerns. IF you do you research and still want to continue down the path of Communism, how about spending time in a Communist country where street sweepers are paid the same as doctors ( no incentive here for qualitiy care), where toilet tissue and toothpaste as scarce items, and where you can live in a commune with a room for a kitchen with 6 sinks, where 6 families prepare their meals.

Are all of the Clan Elliot fascists?

Try reading America’s Founder’s Utopian Whig writing if you actually care to be regarded as anything but a tool of the Roman Anti-Christ’s “Fifth Column,” which has been destroying America since long before it financed the rise of Hitler and built Big Oil on unredressed murder and arson.

Obama is an actual American (A concept of which, perhaps, you have no personal knowledge). Do you think touting Divini Redemptoris’ lies in the United States will get the same result as Kristallnacht?

If you don’t like a return to a Constitutional America, or that your pederast, draft-dodging 9/11-committing fellow-travelers are soon to be hanged, G-d Willing, get a passport and get out of Our Country, which We think is Exceptional and no place for those who neither like nor understand what sets it apart from the Old Sectarian Order of king and pope you and your false-elite ilk desire.

Clown: Are you suggesting that Rush’s comments be taken seriously and given a serious reply? “But he’s just an ENTERTAINER…..”

Get real, folks. Sotomayor is highly qualified and her quotes (even taken out of context) are non-controversial to anyone with a brain. OBVIOUSLY policy is made in court rulings; it happens all the time, with rulings on all sorts of topics.

Duh. As usual, the right-wing whine machine is trying to manufacture hysteria and outrage, but they’ve got no material to work with!

I would really love to see that New Haven Fire Dept. exam Sotomayor threw out because no black applicants could pass it, but the majority or white ones did. I think that’s going to be one of the bigger things to bite her in the a#% during confirmation hearings. Oh, and Rush is a drug addicted moron.

On another note…this latino woman is a bigger danger to civilized society than Obama. She should clean up her own back yard, Mexico, before thinking about my fathers chosen land, the USA.
