I found it hard to believe that Sotomayor has now come to the realization that her words left a wrong impression. After all, she delivered similar lines in roughly half a dozen speeches throughout the years. Her explanation came across as dodgy at best and disingenuous at worst.—Eva RodriguezSonia Sotomayor has to be the wisest Latina in the room at the Senate Supreme Court Judicial Confirmation Hearings because the redaction of her original statement was so patently false that only stupid white men and women would believe her new explanation. Speaking of stupid white men and women see for yourself (see 1:12min video)
According to Sotomayor now, what she really meant was only intended to inspire young Latinas before you imbeciles misunderstood her words
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male."—Judge Sonia SotomayorYet she changed the meaning of her statements before the Senate Committee. Statements that she has made repeated over a period of years to several different groups and the stupid white men and women of the Senate Committee and the media accepted her revisionist statements as if to make her original statement that a Latina is wiser than a White man undoubtedly and undisputedly true.
However Eva Rodriguez isn’t fooled one bit even if stupid White men and stupid White women are perplexed by the “Wise Latina” and Rodriguez has posted in the Washington Post that Sotomayor’s explanation was unconvincing and backpedaling (see post)
If you don’t believe Ms. Rodriguez see Judge Sotomayor explanation for yourself (see 3:30min. video)
In 2001, Sonia Sotomayor, an appeals court judge, gave a speech declaring that the ethnicity and sex of a judge “may and will make a difference in our judging.”Sotomayor told the stupid White men and women of the Senate Judicial Committee that she was simply agreeing with Ginsburg and O’Connor which is not only untrue but it is revisionist. What Sotomayor was actually doing was refuting O’Connor. Where O’Connor stated that male and female judges would reach the same conclusions when deciding cases, Sotomayor said No a wise Latina would conclude cases differently and better than a White male.
In her speech, Judge Sotomayor questioned the famous notion — often invoked by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her retired Supreme Court colleague, Sandra Day O’Connor — that a wise old man and a wise old woman would reach the same conclusion when deciding cases.--CHARLIE SAVAGE
One can only conclude that the way that White Democrat males, females, and some Republicans are fawning over Sotomayor to defend her racist statements and her new revisions of those statements perhaps she is absolutely correct Latinas are smarter than White men.
At least smarter that the White men and women in the Senate confirmation hearings. And it has became painfully obvious that Sotomayor thinks we’re all stupid and she can just talk pass the fact that she made several racist comments to several different groups. Comments quite frankly that would have stopped a White men’s nomination to the Supreme Court cold in its tracks
Sotomayor just may be the wisest Latina in the room in the Judicial confirmation hearings but considering who is there with her that’s really not a complement and considering the committee that’s not saying much.
To add insult to injury the stupid White men and women of the Senate, Democrats and some Republicans will vote to confirm Sotomayer and the first lying self ascribed Racist Sexist Latina woman will be appointed to the Supreme Court.
Hope and Change now doing for the Judiciary what it's done for the Economy!
