The nice thing about modern America is that, if you don’t like a certain form of reality, you can always make up your own version.It helps to have a few federal judges in your corner — such as the ones currently busy with re-imagining marriage as an institution open, on an equality basis, to same-sex as well as different-sex pairings. Then there’s Justice Sonia Sotomayor, declaring that a call for no racial discrimination is tantamount to a call for racial discrimination of a very racial, and detestable, sort.Joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sotomayor last week let loose a blast at her U.S. Supreme Court colleagues for upholding, 6-2, Michigan’s right to amend the state Constitution with a prohibition against “preferential treatment to any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education or public contracting.” Well, I mean — wouldn’t we call such language a green light for preferential treatment? Sotomayor and Ginsburg would.
Remember when American schoolchildren were taught that our country was a great melting pot. When people legally immigrated to America, they were proud to become "Americans".
Today, people like Sotomayor find that idea revolting. They embrace the Marxist notion that government should be used to emphasize differences among our people.. to embrace so called "multi culturalism" .. at least their version of same. That means someone must decide that some people are perpetually deemed incapable of being "American" without preferential treatment.. in perpetuity.
How can that not be destructive to society? It can’t.. and we see the results all around us.
Three cheers for freedom and equality in Michigan!
