NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who grew up poor in New York City, described Monday how she navigated new worlds of Ivy League universities and the nation’s highest court. Sotomayor told students at Yale University that she has a competitive drive to improve herself and isn’t afraid to ask questions.

Well begging your pardon Madame Justice...but I find your rulings insulting to the US Consittution which you took an oath to support and defend when you become one of only nine in the nation to uphold the chief corenerstone of our liberty.

Ah, yeah, that's kind of the point judge. They are criminals so it is accurate. Being labeled a criminal is insulting and degrading. That's part of the dis-incentive to becoming a criminal. We certainly don't want to promote or revere criminals, do we? Sheesh.

The left continues to censor the language we use.

It used to be okay to say “illegal aliens”. Then the left decided that this was not permitted. So we had to say “illegal immigrants”. Now that term is even questioned by some, who now prefer the PC term “undocumented immigrants” or “undocumented workers”. And leftism being the way it is, using unapproved terms means you are racist and bigoted and xenophobic.

Because as we all know, you can’t just disagree with the left, or have a different position on issues. Disagreement with the left means that you are evil and malicious in your feelings towards officially recognized grievance groups, such as illegals or homosexuals.

No beotch, insulting is having people breaking the law and given preferential treatment while honest legal citizens are penalized following the law.

Wise latino my ass!

Has the world gone totally insane? Illegal immigration is the only crime where we fret about the feelings of the perpetrators.

Great. A Supreme Court Justice who is unclear on the definition of “crime” and the Rule of Law. Another Obama triumph over reason.

Why. Are you or one of your family members a criminal, Mr. Sotomyer? Sorry if it offends you. We have a real problem with the truth here in America which has been fostered by PCness. Now we’ve finally figured it’s just another form of lying to excuse bad behavior and we’ve seen enormous negative fallout from allowing it to make us feel guilty. Well guess what? We choose the truth. If you don’t like it, go elsewhere.

Read the article. Her comments candidly expose her as a “victim” of affirmative action, complete with her obvious sense of insecurity about being among those she knows are smarter than she is. Naturally, she’ll always side with the “downtrodden”, and therefore she cannot consider illegal aliens criminals. She epitomizes a Leftist’s inability to apply standards to anyone. Everything is relative.

What’s insulting are people like her who are trying to label ordinary law-biding CITIZENS as criminals with all your gun/people control just because your muslim boss wants it that way. All the better to round up for Fema camps if they don’t cave. He will stand with Islam if need be. He said so.
