Sotomayor practices "tribal justice"?

Buchanan:  Sotomayor Practices "Tribal Justice""In her world," Buchanan wrote yesterday of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, "equal justice takes a back seat to tribal justice."

"How can any Republican senator vote to elevate to the Supreme Court a judge who, all her life, has believed in, preached and practiced race discrimination against white males, without endorsing the Obama-Sotomayor view that diversity trumps equal justice, and race-based justice should have its own seat on the high court?"

In Buchanan's world, all racial groups--foreign and domestic--are competing, in a zero sum game, for the largest slice of the American pie. So a woman who spends much of her life trying to improve the livelihoods of Latinos and Hispanics is, just by default, preaching and practicing race discrimination against white males.
Comment:  To refresh your memory, conservative rants such as this are based on one line in a Sotomayor speech. A line that basically said, "My experiences are different from the typical judge's so I may bring something fresh to the table."

This is the same attitude we heard in Obama's Inaugural Address. White Americans believe in democracy, fairness, reason. Brown indigenous people believe in tribal politics, self-interest, emotions.

In other words, indigenous people are more primitive and savage than we are. So it's okay to invade their lands and kill them (e.g., Columbus in the "New World," Bush in Iraq).

For more examples of Buchanan's racism, see:

American patriots have same DNA?
Mestizo leaders = "scrub stock"?
Buchanan:  Helping Indians = "pigout"

The Iraq war is not genocide see the stats below:


If it's so bad why have anti-warriors had to lie about casualties? The war has saved not only Iraqi lives but the lives of Israelis and Palestinians (since Saddam's no longer around to fund Palestinian terrorism). Not to mention Iraq is now stable so it's not the fiasco leftists like you try to make it out to be.

Actually, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died as a direct result of the Iraq War, and millions have fled the country.

Iraq was and is a fiasco. And Stephen is an idiot.
