Skip to comments.US Court Strikes Down Michigan Affirmative Action Ban
Posted on 11/15/2012 1:10:12 PM PST by cripplecreek
The court says the ban puts an extraordinary burden on those who have to mount a long expensive campaign if they want to protect it.
C’mon White people. Lets find a place to go already.
Agreed. I just witnessed the most egregious ‘election’ (voter fraud) ever perpetrated on any nation, EVER. Did anyone really think for one second that 0bama would leave the White House?
:: The court says the ban puts an extraordinary burden on those who have to mount a long expensive campaign if they want to protect it. ::
And when dealing with government regulators such as the EPA (as I do daily), we are always told, “financial burdens are no defense in efforts to comply”.
I'm unclear on whether that is within the Constitutional Umbra or Penumbra.
Obumer’s plan working just fine.
Since anthropologists claim mankind moved out of Africa and spread throughout the world, then everyone can claim to be African-American and get a piece of the affirmative action pie
discrimination is okay, the leftists say
Yeah Its kinda funny. I thought I was using the available tools when I voted in favor of the ban 6 years ago. I didn’t know I was being unfair.
This is exactly where states need to start pushing back against federal tyrrany. C’mon Michigan tell that judge to blow it out is backside and enforce his little order if he can.
“a federal right that all citizens “have equal access to the tools of political change.”
That the smelly hairy Obama does that mean?
And that, dear readers, is ample proof that the writer of this opinion is most certainly using the actions suspected of many of our “affirmative action” employees.
If anyone even thinks of respecting judges after this, think again.
AP - Michigan’s ban on affirmative action in college admissions was declared unconstitutional Thursday by a deeply divided federal appeals court, six years after state voters said race could not be an issue in choosing students.
In an 8-7 decision, the court said the 2006 amendment to the Michigan Constitution is illegal because it presents an extraordinary burden to opponents who would have to mount their own long, expensive campaign through the ballot box to protect affirmative action.
Obama gets “re-elected” and the blacks get favored.
Firearms hunting season opens soon. Lots of folks at the range training.
Its crap anyway. the national group By any means necessary and the university of Michigan are the two down trodden groups that have fought us every step of the way.
Maybe Mitt Romney should file suit and declare that it was an unfair burden to expect him to overcome vote fraud.
Blacks is in charge now.
White helped put the there. Get used to it or get ready to stop it.Zimbabwe here we come.
Firearm deer season opened today.
So the decision opinion basically says “It’s unconstitutional because the pro-ponents of A-A lost the election.”? Seriously??
Quick... somebody appeal last week’s Presidential election with this group of robes... maybe it will be unconstitutional that Obama won.
In the long term, human beings have only three strategies to cope with situations where groups in conflict must occupy the same geographic area:
1. Partition (violent or peaceful, often impossible and seldom successful).
2. Migration (always works but there must be somewhere to go).
3. Google "Hutus and Tutsies." 'Nuff said.
The Left imagines an infalliable fourth method that involves positive vibrations, rainbows, unicorns and Skittles, where everyone gets exactly what they want and still arrive home in time for supper. Sadly this scheme exists on in their fantasy world.
So according to the court, *everybody* has a right to the tool known as “affirmative action?”
That is going to be news to the many associations and government-funded organs for the advancement of segregation.
So according to the court, *everybody* has a right to the tool known as “union elections?”
The UAW is going to be surprised to discover that *all of us* now have the right to vote in union elections. *SO COOL!* We don’t need to prove that we are citizens, and we don’t need any photo ID, and we don’t need to prove that we work - because the unions certainly have no requirement that voters are working!
We can *ALL* vote now in *ANY* political election!
At the crack of dawn?
I think it officially opened at 7:20 am or thereabouts.
“.... is illegal because it presents an extraordinary burden to opponents who would have to mount their own long, expensive campaign through the ballot box to protect affirmative action.”
Hmmm...would think that should nullify a HUGE portion of Federal Regulatory Law...
If Blacks be in charge, WE BE DA MINORTEE!!! WHERE’S MY OBAMAFONE!!
Interesting to see this show up in an affirmative action case ~ but there you have it.
The 21st Century George Wallaces say:
Discrimination now! Discrimination forever!
“...Zimbabwe here we come...”
Well those Michigan fellas came down here during the 1861-65 war and laid waste to Tennessee and much of the South but NOW they don’t like the way the wind is blowing. We could have told you what it was like to live under Black bureaucrats as we did during the so-called Reconstruction.
As former CSA General Jubal Early said “What a gentle institution slavery must have been to have so well prepared the Negro for the ballot box.”
This poor suffering international group were the primary opponents of the ban.
Most folks making a claim of special privilege for hispanics really don't know their history since EVERYBODY born in the USA was born in a part of NA which was subject to the authority of the KIng of Spain.
While employed by the federal government I regularly put in appeals of my categorization when the boss would send in a form every year saying I was something else.
They'd ignore it.
One law suit by someone demanding privileges and being denied those privileges where Hispanic status is at issue would seem to be ripe.
Oreo Republican to boot.
I always laughed at the native born (”white”) South Africans who would try to claim being an “African-American” here in the US. Drove the HR folks nutz. LOL
This has to be by affirmative action lawyer/judges. To have a mindset that says one part of society must have unburdened rights over another part of society with burden of need for voting is preposterous. Only from a distorted view of social justice could such a decision be made. If possible this needs to try for remedy higher up.
Note that Mrs. HorseFace Ketchup JF’nK is an African-American.
I’m already e-mailing tweeting it to every screaming conservative I can think of who has a radio show.
What an insane ruling. Losing at the ballot box is unfair?
How the hell can a US District oourt strike down a law that requires everyone be treated equally? (rhetorical question)
America needs a tax strike.
On my college application to the UofMN I stated that I am North Atlantic Islander. I got calls and letters wanting to know if I needed any special accomodations or cultural days etc. Not once did they ask what island in the north Atlantic I came from. Great Britain is an island in the north Atlantic.
“Well those Michigan fellas came down here during the 1861-65 war and laid waste to Tennessee and much of the South but NOW they dont like the way the wind is blowing. “
Yeah...That was actually people from Ohio pretending to be from Michigan. Honest!
Conservatism can’t survive for the long-term, if leftist activist judges are allowed to survive for the long-term, too! How can leftist activist judges and all of their ongoing behaviors, finally, come to an end, too?
“Obama gets re-elected and the blacks get favored.”
This was around long before Obama was elected; W spoke out against it but did nothing.
It is economic warfare that is driving whites into extinction; we just reaped the benefits again on Election Day.
They technically don't qualify ~ to be negros
“The court says the ban puts an extraordinary burden on those who have to mount a long expensive campaign if they want to protect it.”
WTFreak? Since when is a law upheld on the basis of legal fees? Tar and feathers was the founders response to BS like this.
