For those of you promoting the agenda of NOT supporting Harriet Miers, take a look at where you are siding.

Not in Our Name project.

They are SDS/Weatherman.

From FBI Files:

Weatherman or Weather Underground Organization, is a "revolutionary organization of communist men and women" formed by members of the Students for a Democratic Society or SDS. They were originally called the Revolutionary Youth Movement. They advocated the overthrow of our government and capitalism. They carried out a campaign of bombings, jailbreaks, and riots in 1969-1976.

The group derived their name from Bob Dylan's song lyrics from "Subterranean Homesick Blues", which were, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", I use to see that quote at the bottom of their periodical, New Left Notes, when I use to work at a periodical distribution company.

Their first event, in 1969, was the "Days of Rage" in Chicago. They blew up a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Riot. They announced at a convention that they supported Charles Manson. The rally failed to draw as many participants (300) as they had hoped. They did lead a riot through Chicago's business district, smashing windows and cars. 6 were shot and 70 arrested. The conflict went on for a few days.

1970, after the shooting by police of Black Panther Fred Hampton, the group issued a Declaration of War against the United States government, changing its name to the "weather underground organization", adopting fake IDs, and pursuing covert activities only. These initially included plans for a bombing of a US military noncommissioned officers' dance at Fort Dix. But when three Underground members died in an accidental explosion while preparing the bomb in a Greenwich Village, New York City safe house, other cells re-evaluated their plans and decided to pursue only non-lethal projects.

This group released a number of manifestos and declarations, while conducting a series of bombings. These attacked the U.S. Capitol, The Pentagon, police and prison buildings, and the rebuilt Haymarket statue again, among other targets. The group took measures to avoid any loss of life as a result of these bombings, issuing warnings to evacuate the building ahead of time via phone. They also took a $25,000 payment from a drugs group called The Brotherhood of Eternal Love to break LSD advocate Timothy Leary out of prison, transporting him to Algeria. They remained largely successful at avoiding the police and the FBI.

In the mid-to-late 1970s, the group began dissolving, as many members turned themselves in to the police, and others moved onto other armed revolutionary groups. Very few served prison sentences, since the evidence gathered against them, by the FBI's COINTELPRO program, was inadmissable in court, due to the illegal methods used to obtain it.

Famous members of the Weather Underground include Kathy Boudin, Mark Rudd, Terry Robbins, David Gilbert, and the still-married couple Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers.

Many former Weathermen have re-integrated into society, without necessarily repudiating their original intent. Bill Ayers, now a Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, said in a September 11, 2001 New York Times profile "I don't regret setting bombs. I believe we didn't do enough."

Make sure if you are not on the side of supporting Miers, it isn't information that came from SDS, Not In Our Name, MoveOn.org, of the NLG.

I've trusted Bush's pick on her since about the 4th or 5th day of his announcement. I will continue to trust his judgement on her pick.

No one except my own. If Harriet Miers believed The Texas State bar should mirror society, she's wrong. No organization should attempt to mirror society. Society includes pimps, whores, winos, perverts and thieves. I wonder how many from each of these categories she inducted on to the state bar in questing for her goal.

Her practice of Affirmative action makes her an unqualified candidate from a conservative perspective.

Hey you know what, I bet some of those organizations support breathing as well. Better hold our breath.

It seems there is good indication she is pro-life. But we have absolutely no idea how she would vote on gun rights, property rights(overturning Kelo vs. New London), affirmative action, State's rights, or any number off issues that are important to conservatives. After how hard we worked to elect Republicans in 2004, we deserve better then this.

Applying that logic, Hitler was a vegetarian, therefore vegetarians are Nazis.

Just because some people oppose Miers doesn't mean they're allied with the Forces of Darkness like MoveOn.org or the other fringies. It means they oppose Miers, and probably for entirely different reasons than those groups.

Nope I'm not old enough to get your mistake, er, point. I'm still learning about history since I had the left NEA version given to me in school.

As to your forced in a corner pick of who I support in WW2, I'm still reading about the Nazi Soviet partnership that they had the convention to celebrate in NYC.

So your example doesn't sell.

But that is changing the subject now isn't? Why are you quoting SDS material to make your points?

We are siding with our conservative principles. Everything else is "background noise", and should be ignored. It's called character, and my conservative beliefs eclipse my belief in President Bush. He's just a frail fallible human just like the rest of us by the way, and the conservative movement is larger than this President. We have to struggle on while he plans his library in a few years.

This has to be the dumbest post at FR in a long time. Most liberal groups opposed David Souter when he was nominated, too.

True, lawyers can be pretty slimy. My point is, is that her support for the Aristocracy of Quotas is documented and on Record. How many Mayor Nagins and Governor Blancos do we want wielding power in the name of diversity?

"Miers Backed Race, Sex Set-Asides. She Made Diversity A Texas Bar Goal
Washington Post ^ | Saturday, October 22, 2005; Page A01 | By Jo Becker and Sylvia Moreno


Posted on 10/22/2005 8:38:48 AM PDT by .cnI redruM


As president of the State Bar of Texas, Harriet Miers wrote that "our legal community must reflect our population as a whole," and under her leadership the organization embraced racial and gender set-asides and set numerical targets to achieve that goal.

The Supreme Court nominee's words and actions from the early 1990s, when she held key leadership positions as president-elect and president of the state bar, provide the first window into her personal views on affirmative action, an area in which the Supreme Court is closely divided and where Miers could tip the court's balance.


(Excerpt) Read more at washingtonpost.com ..."

Who do you think you are siding with regarding these facts? It's not the Heritage Foundation I can assure you.

Do you realize that all the tactics of the left are now being used by supporters of Miers (I know - not all but enough).

Let's see, we have:
1) Attack the messenger, not the message
2) Guilt by association
3) Guilt by non-association
4) Use emotional arguments rather than arguing substance

This is not DU - pls use relevant arguments rather than this type of BS.

Correct me if I am misunderstanding you but I think that you are arguing that rather than evaluating Harriet Miers on her merits we instead let Moveon.org decide for us by doing the opposite of whatever they do. I can't do that.

A typo is when someone spells 'Emglish' instead of 'English.' Using "who's" for 'whose' suggests unfamiliarity with English grammar.

In any case, please inform us whether, had you been a member of the Dallas Bar Association, you would have voted for the resolution "urging Texas law firms to set a goal of hiring one qualified minority lawyer for every 10 new associates."

Websites of those supporting the Miers nomination, likewise, do not follow a specific criteria.

She has support from various and diverse groups.

==

So, to rely strictly on a list of those opposing her is about as disingenuous as relying strictly on a list of those who support her, and then applying a blanket label to either camp.

There is a difference between the government ordering businesses to hire less qualified people because of their skin color versus what Miers did - suggesting,as a private citizen, that businessmen voluntarily make an effort to hire 10% minorites.
