Possible Obama SCOC Pick Ignored Evidence, Constitution

Story here.

( – U.S. Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee, voted to deny a racial discrimination claim in a 2008 decision. She dismissed the case in a one-paragraph statement that, in the opinion of one dissenting judge, ignored the evidence and did not even address the constitutional issues raised by the case.

Looking at what happened, one wonders why would Obama consider appointing an arrogant racist to the SCOTUS.

Clearly, there's a LOT of Left-Wing Extremists acting as "judges" but actually performing what amounts to the duty of radically-transformative social activists and reengineers.

A couple of other insane, Left-Wing-Extremist rulings by this potential SCOTUS judge:

In another unusual case, then-district Judge Sotomayor ruled that a prospective lawyer must be given special consideration in taking the New York state bar exam because her dyslexia qualified as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, despite the fact that she had failed the exam five times.


In 1994, Judge Sotomayor ruled in favor of two prisoners who claimed to practice Santeria, a Caribbean religion that involves animal sacrifice and voodoo, saying that “distinctions between ‘traditional’ and ‘non-traditional’ religions” are “intolerable.”

Do we want to see this extremist, radical, hellbent social-reengineering judicial activist on the SCOTUS? Perhaps Obama does. Or at least his puppetmaster(s) do(es).

The common thread in Sotomayor’s decisions seems to be her view that discrimination remains pervasive in the United States, and that the role of a judge is to “level the playing field,” even if it means rewarding the unqualified and punishing the deserving, while ignoring the law in the process. It is indicative of how she sees the role of a justice that she has previously said that the Court of Appeals “is where policy is made.” This is the textbook definition of judicial activism. Unfortunately, it is also “the critical ingredient” that Barack Obama has identified as the chief “criterion” by which he will select the next Supreme Court justice
