New York, NY, May 15, 2010 � The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today called Pat Buchanan "a recidivist anti-Semite who doesn't miss an opportunity to show his fangs," in response to remarks he made about the Jewish faith of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and the religious makeup of the current court.
Buchanan wrote in his May 14 syndicated column, "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?"
Buchanan continued, "Not in living memory has a Democratic president nominated an Irish, Italian, or Polish Catholic � What happened to the party of the Daleys, Rizzos and Rostenkowskis?"
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:
Pat Buchanan is a recidivist anti-Semite who never misses an opportunity to show his fangs. His remarks about the Jewish background of Elena Kagan and the religious makeup of the Supreme Court are bigoted and unacceptable in a pluralistic society such as ours.
Kagan's nomination for the Supreme Court should be considered on its merits. She is a highly qualified candidate for the judiciary, an exemplary Solicitor General and a great legal mind.
As the nomination process for Kagan moves forward, we hope that all Americans will reject appeals to bigotry and anti-Semitism.

It’s his rice bowl, how he pays the rent.
Foxman is definitely out of line this time. First off there’s no evidence whatsoever that Kagan is actually Jewish.
Imagine every member of the SCOTUS coming from Harvard or Yale. Don’t think there is some kind of cabal?
Lets demand a Shocker to represent the Majority for just once!: A CONSERVATIVE PROTESTANT FEMALE EXTRODINARY CANDIDATE FOR SCOTUS WHO HAS THE MOST INTELLIGENT AND SHOPHISTICATED LEGAL EXPERTISE IN ALL OF AMERICA!!!!
I’ll second. That’s diversity!
Anyone with more than an ounce of brains can look at your record and discern that YOU ARE ANTI-WASP.
Don’t pout when someone talks about what is actually going on.
One third of the Supreme Court of the United States of America will be ...Sssshhhhsssshhh......
Nobody is allowed to ask such questions are they?
Thank you for the Honor of your Belief! and for being a Great Freeper since 1999!!!!... ;-)
Pat seems more than a bit obsessed. Would he be happier if Obama picked an ultra-leftist Catholic instead? Everyone knew Hussein was going to far left with is pick, so what does it matter if her last name is Jewish, Irish, Italian, or Polish?
And Foxman should give it a rest. I suspect he wouldn't defend a conservative Jewish nominee from attacks by his comrades on the left.
I am Jewish and not a PJB fan at all. He is absoultely crazy when discussing WWII and Hitler.
On the other hand, he does have a point. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I knew Buchanan was bad news in 2000, and I was an 18 year old first time voter then.
Roberts was questioned about his religion on length and nobody batted an eyelash. But no. Mr. Foxman could care less about Protestants and Catholics. He’s only out to save his hide. Could have used other words. But I can’t in good charity use them.
Not to mention Michael Voris has it well documented that she’s gay too! Shocker!
Most POtuS do also. Socialist schools are turning out all our Judges and Politicians.
Mr Foxman greatest sucess has been copywrighting the very lucrative term holocaust. Just ask the Armenians about him.
If a commentator said “We need a Supreme Court that looks more like America” ... would that be racist?
He fits right in at PMSNBC.
