Sonia Sotomayor will be one step closer to becoming the newest justice of the Supreme Court after her final Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in 5 minutes.
Republicans are split on whether or not to vote in the affirmative for her confirmation. Most who support her are just jumping on the Obama bandwagon and choosing to ignore her blatant racism and intent to bring race politics to America’s Constitution. Other rogue Republicans just want to pander to the Hispanic vote.
Should Republicans choose to vote in favor of her confirmation, they will be affirming not only her racist attitudes against non-approved social demographics, but also Obama’s pick of an activist judge who wishes to replace over 225 years of Constitutional precedent with a new standard of “judicial empathy.” While many would argue that Republicans have no chance of fighting her confirmation anyways, and that they should approve her in that case, this is contrary to the oaths the Senators have taken (and the President and Supreme Court justices, for that matter) to defend the Constitution and the United States of America.
God save the Constitution.
