CORRECTION, WE GOT THIS WRONG- SOTOMAYOR, "Castrate All White Males."
UPDATE: WE GOT THIS WRONG. THIS WAS A SATIRE PIECE THAT I DIDN'T CHECK OUT. THERE IS NO RECORD OF SONIA SOTOMAYOR SAYING ANYTHING REGARDING CASTRATING ALL WHITE MALES. I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS ERROR, I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED THIS OUT BEFORE POSTING.
For God and country,
AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN
President Obama said that comments by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor in a 2004 speech in which she called for the "castration of all white males until they are no longer dominant," have been "taken out of context" by right wing ideologues.
In the speech delivered to the San Juan chapter of NOW, Sotomayor said, "I want to be perfectly clear about this next comment so that there is no mistaking my words to mean something other than what they plainly say: the time has come to end white male oppression by castrating every white male until they are no longer dominant in Western culture. That means forcible removal of their testicles. I realize the brutality of my comment, and I don't know how to say it more clearly."
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs agreed with President Obama that the statement "has been taken out of context," and added that Sotomayor "certainly did not mean" that white males should be castrated." Judge Sotomayor was simply saying that there should be room at the American table for diverse cultures, that's all. It is astounding that people are reading 'castration' into it."
President Obama told MSNBC: "Look, when Judge Sotomayor appears before the Senate committee, all this nonsense being spewed out by ideologues will be revealed for what it is."
The American Conservative Republican feels that this racist and hateful statement by Sonia Soyotmayor, should be enough to disqualify her for any judicial appointment at any level of government including that of a municipal magistrate. Would any intelligent person approve the appointment of someone who feels that all African-American males should be castrated? Sonia Soyotmayor is obviously afflicted with the disorder of judging people by their skin color and/or gender and is therefore unacceptable for the position of Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and the president should immediately withdraw her nomination. Continued support of Soyotmayor's appointment to the Supreme Court by the president or any member of the United States Senate would be an endorsement of her racist and sexist hatred.
