Malkin: the Liberal Racists' 'Uncle Tom' Card
GOPUSA ^ | June 26, 2013 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 06/26/2013 7:27:23 AM PDT by yoe

Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He's a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He's also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism.

On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court's decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures. Winkler fumed: "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas."

This Ivy League-trained public official and attorney relied on smug bigotry to make his case against a Supreme Court justice who happens to be black. "Uncle Thomas" wasn't a typo. Denigration was the goal, not an accident. It was a knowing, deliberate smear.

[snip] "I didn't think it was offensive to suggest that Justice Thomas should be even more concerned about racial discrimination than colleagues," he protested.

Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color.

My question is about the decision itself. The VRA was, at its heart, an “affirmative action” piece of legislation. In a wrong-headed way to allow the “oppressed party” to somehow “get even”, special privileges are extended to the protected class. But at some point, the balance has been achieved, and some sort of rough equality exists, so why must the provisions CONTINUE to apply? It is time and past time for this provision to be repealed.

So four of the Justices on the SCOTUS bench failed to exercise good judgment. Does this not say more about the fallibility of those four Justices than of any defect of character on the part of Justice Thomas?

“And when all else fails, left-wing prejudice is always just a well-intended joke.”

In the meantime, all this is going on simultaneously while Ms. Deen is being positively eviscerated over he decades-old remarks in her OWN kitchen!

But, Paula Deen didn’t graduate from Harvard, so she’s toast!

It just proves that the Supreme Court has developed into something that it should not be...Political...

Instead of a judicial check (and balance) that is supposed to utilize a document, a template, to review the Constitutionality of laws passed by another branch of our government...

At least that is how it is supposed to work...I think that is what I was taught to understand its purpose...

So what we have is a complete failure of the basic constraints of our government, loading it with feeble, feckless and otherwise political ideology-first people who’s personal agendas weigh into decisions that need to be put aside when the time comes, and they fail to do so...

And it is getting harder and harder to find virtuous, transparent, judicial minds to fill those vacancies when they become available...Hence our ongoing dilemma over the last 30 years...

We know who “we” can count on to do their best to do the job properly, and without personal or political bias...It just looks that way when the decisions go the way of conservative, originalist values...And we cheer when it does, and criticize when it does not...

And we have been experiencing a plethora of disappointing decisions lately that are building up the resentment of how poorly the government overall is working...

The icing on the cake is when they basically convey this idea that those of us who disagree should just accept it, deal with it, and let them continue to destroy the foundations this country was built upon...

There will come a day, very quickly, that they will regret these actions on their part...

Unfortunately where we had a balance of conservative, originalists on the bench there, we really only have three that have proven themselves to be of that pedigree...

Alito, Thomas and Scalia...Roberts and Kennedy are the swing votes, pawns if you will to the liberal, progressive, Fabian socialists who are pulling the strings these days...And two of those guys, I hope are taking their vitamins, doing the things that keep them healthy to serve this country until we can get this thing under control...

We are rapidly losing ground in our (recent) battles, and it is not looking good for all of our futures...
