Are Liberals Anti-WASP? by Patrick J. Buchanan 05/14/2010
"A chorus of black commentators and civic leaders has begun expressing frustration over (Elena) Kagan's hiring record as Harvard dean. From 2003 to 2009, 29 faculty members were hired: 28 were white and one was Asian American." CNN pundit Roland Martin slammed "Kagan's record on diversity as one that a 'white Republican U.S. president' would be criticized for." This is an excerpt from the Washington Post about the rising anger in a black community, which voted 24-1 for Obama, that one of their own was once again passed over for the Supreme Court.
Not since Thurgood Marshall, 43 years ago, has a Democratic president chosen an African-American. The lone sitting black justice is Clarence Thomas, nominated by George H. W. Bush. And Thomas was made to run a gauntlet by Senate liberals. Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity? But while leaders in the black community may be upset, the folks who look more like the real targets of liberal bias are white Protestants and Catholics, who still constitute well over half of the U.S. population.

Pat really hates the Jews, doesn’t he?
Yours is such an expected, safe reaction and a feable attempt at censorship. Pat is speaking the unspeakable that needs to be brought out for discussion. The fact is that Jews and blacks are currently way over represented at the highest levels of the government.
feable should be feeble.
May Pat and conservatives of his ilk rot in hell.
Sounds like you want representation based on population percentage and not competence (not that Kagan’s a shining example of it).
How many SC Justices are Harvard Law graduates?
It is obvious that competence and government are mutually exclusive. For government jobs, it is only fair to provide jobs based on representation.
I don’t think the garbage of all stripes and colors in Congress today in any way represent the best of any breed. E.g: Maxine Waters, Barney Frank, Charlie Rangel, Barbara Boxer.
The past four senators to hold a certain us senate seat have been Jewish
It’s not impossible to have both. Of course, South Africa was pilloried for having so many minorities in charge of too many aspects of government and life in general.
I wonder how Kagan feels about white, male firefighters?
CA’s two senators: Jewish: Unfortunately both are ultra-liberal.
Don’t have a count, but most of the justices are also from the Ivy League, and from the Northeast. Damned little geographical and academic diversity on the SCOTUS.
He is speaking out for us UNREPRESENTED PROTESTANTS.
The liberals like to establish quotas.
Well kick them back on this one.
We need a PROTESTANT on the court.
If Kagan is confirmed there will a SCOTUS consisting of 6 Roman Catholics and 3 Jews, with 5 of the nine from NY, four from NYC, and all from Harvard or Yale.
No Protestants in an overwhelmingly Protestant country, no Westerners, no Southerners, except for Clarence Thomas.
Pat really doesn’t seem to like Jews, but that is hardly the point.
Pat doesn’t like us, but I agree with him here. There should be a Protestant on the court.
So you’re saying that there is an underrepresentative of Protestants in government? Really?
