Importance of Being Elena Malcolm A. Kline, July 12, 2010
(Accuracy in Academia executive director Mal Kline spoke on U. S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagans extensive academic record at a rally sponsored by Young Americans for Freedom on July 1, 2010. What follows are excerpts of his transcribed remarks.)
Its great to be here with Young Americans for Freedom. In fact, its great to see Young Americans for Freedom in Washington, D.C. Its a refreshing change. Now, I am Mal Kline. Im with a group called Accuracy in Academia. Thats what brings me here today, and, by the way, we couldnt find a single anti-military rally that Dean Kagan missed in the five years that she was at Harvard Law.
Now, youve heard that she has no record. Actually, shes got a paper trail that goes back about thirty years. Weve got all this covered, all this, at Academia.org. Just click on Elena Kagan and see what comes up. For instance, in 1996, in the Chicago Law Review she said, she warned of an overabundance of ideas in the absence of direct governmental action. What exactly does that mean? Inquiring minds want to know.
You can trace through her writings, as Mike said, a thirty-year-arc in which she has always advocated for a federal government larger in scope than in the Constitution, going right back to her days at Princeton, when she did her senior thesis on the Socialist Workers Party of New York and delivered a resounding tribute to them in the conclusion. ThatIm sad to say that may have been the best shes ever written because at least it was straightforward. I can only charitably, having suffered through the five law review articles, describe them as convoluted.

Here’s another great opportunity for a conservative senator to show his or her guts. If you can’t filibuster a nominee that does not believe in or understand what natural rights are, you can’t filibuster anything.
Elections have consequences, but destroying our country should not be one of them.
The Kagan resource on the AIA website is quite thorough. Thank you for having a presence on FR.
