Kennedy Asserts Alito Is Racist
Human events Online ^ | 10 January 2006 | Robert B. Bluey

Posted on 01/09/2006 7:42:29 PM PST by Aussie Dasher

Among Sen. Teddy Kennedy's many complaints about Samuel Alito, the one that caught the attention of Republicans today was his assertion that Alito is a racist.

"In Alito's 15-years on the bench, Judge Alito has not written one single opinion on the merits in favor of a person of color who alleged race discrimination in the workplace."

Moments later, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) took Kennedy to task, leaving the liberal Massachusetts senator shaking his head.

Sessions cited three cases in which Alito demonstrated that "all Americans receive equal protection of the laws, regardless of race."

Among them:

U.S. v. Kithcart: In this case, Alito said the Constitution doesn't allow police officers to racially profile black drivers. His opinion, citing a violation of the 4th Amendment, stated: "The mere fact that Kithcart is black and the perpetrators had been described as two black males is plainly insufficient. ... Officer Nelson could not justifiably arrest any African-American man who happened to drive by in any type of black sports car."

Brinson v. Vaughn: Alito ruled that the Constitution don't allow prosecutors to exclude black jurors. In his ruling, Alito granted the prisoner's habeas petition. He said the Constitution guarantees "that a state does not use peremptory challenges to remove any black juror because of his race. Thus, a prosecutor's decision to refrain from discrimination against some African-American jurors does not cure discrimination against others."

Zubi v. AT&T: Alito authored the lone dissent in which he called for an expansive view of civil rights laws. In this case, the plaintiff sued his employer for firing him on the basis of race. While the majority ruled against the plaintiff's claim based on the time it had taken him to bring his case, Alito rejected that argument. The Supreme Court later vindicated Alito's view in a unanimous decision.

Just think, when Kennedy dies, his body will be preserved for centuries because of the pickling in booze. He can lie in state in Massachusetts like Lenin.

Actually, Mr. Kennedy asserted that a Mr. Alioto was a racist. The numbnut can't even get his name right.

Not only is Alito not a racist, but he wouldn't leave a woman to drown so he could salvage a political career.

Kennedy also said something to the effect that Alito never sided with the "little guy" but always with the government or corporations. I don't know much about the particular cases he was reffering to (he probably dosen't either) but I would hope Alito sides with whoever side the law is on. Not who the plaintif is. Kennedy is such a POS.

From what I understand .. there are even more cases that could be sited

Kennedy owes an apology not only for this .. but also for calling him Ali oh toe

Sorry to disappoint you but I'm a born and bred Aussie. Been to the States a couple of times. Can't wait to go back. Love the place - well, some of it (I've never been to Massachusetts!)

I AM very pleased to be as far away as possible from Lard Ass, though!

And I think Ted Kennedy is a lying, treasonous, philandering old sot who may also be a murderer.

Just my personal opinion of the low-life, mind you.

Did Kennedy think Alito was racist the first time he voted for him, in 1990?

Or is this just another case of the democratic, 'I was for it before I was against' it theme?

I love it when Sessions hands Kennedy his a$$ like this, given that Fat Boy declared Jeff unfit to serve on the Federal Bench many, many years ago. Snarl'en Arlen also helped derail the nomination.

Paybacks truly are, well, you know.

Tens of thousands of innocent whites have been murdered for the the color of their skin since Kennedy has been in the Senate. How could it happen? Because scum like Ted Kennedy worked for it to happen. He has never uttered one public statement condemning or even acknowledging the existence of these racist crimes.

Hundreds of thousands of innocent whites have been raped for the color of their skin since Kennedy has been in the Senate. How could it happen? Because scum like Ted Kennedy worked for it to happen. He has never uttered one public statement condemning or even acknowledging the existence of these racist crimes.

City after city has been, in effect, ethnically cleansed since Kennedy has been in the Senate. How could it happen? Because scum like Ted Kennedy worked for it to happen.

Ted Kennedy is a racist war criminal.

A driver is stuck in traffic...nothing is moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on his window. The driver cracks the window and asks, "What's happened?"

The man replies, "Terrorists have kidnapped Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. They're demanding a $10 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they're going to douse them with gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection."

The driver asks, "How much is everyone giving, on average?"

"About a gallon."
