THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER ABOUT SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH IS SCALIA

Gorsuch called Scalia somebody his respected, a mentor too if I recall correctly.  So here are a few things his mentor said. You should look up what kind of abuses Scalia said white people in general and white cops specifically could lay upon black backs without violating anybody's Civil Rights -- especially back in the 1990s.



The republicans need 8 democratic votes to get Gorsuch on the bench. He shouldn't get any democratic votes after the crap the GOP pulled on President Obama's Supreme Court Nominee. They refused to give President Obama's nominee a hearing for a year. And GOP stopped seating President Obama's judicial appointments in lower courts for a year as well -- nothing about the law or America is sacred to these jackals. Don't you ever believe they care about anything except whiteness and especially the very white one-percent

Tell the weak-willed democrats to stop Gorsuch. This soft-spoken, peaceful-looking nominee is a wolf hiding his teeth if he revered Anton Scalia. For white folks, there was just rudeness and insensitivity and differences of opinion from Scalia. For black and brown folk? Scalia made decisions that made it easier for white folks to deny the right to vote and just keep on breathing.

If Gorsuch admired that THING, he's got to be stopped.

Besides, nothing Trump touched should be nominated to anything while he's being investigated. What if the lies Trump has told are big enough to warrant impeachment?


Before you start looking up more Scalia's decisions, here are a few things that should give you an idea of Gorsuch's idea of a good judge.


ANTON SCALIA'S GREATEST HITS

ON GAY RIGHTS, QUOTES 

While speaking at Princeton in 2012, Scalia was asked by a student why he would compare laws banning homosexuality with laws against murder.

"It's a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the 'reduction to the absurd,'" Scalia answered. "If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?"

ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, QUOTES

"There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a slower-track school where they do well," Scalia said

The comments were called "racist," "disgusting" and "insulting."

ON IMMIGRATION, QUOTES

In 2012, the Supreme Court struck down some provisions of a controversial Arizona immigration law.

Scalia argued in his dissent that states, in the 18th century, were able to decide what to do with "unwanted immigrants," including freed slaves.

"In the first 100 years of the Republic, the States enacted numerous laws restricting the immigration of certain classes of aliens, including convicted criminals, indigents, persons with contagious diseases, and (in Southern States) freed blacks," Scalia wrote.

ON GENDER DISCRIMINATION, QUOTE
While speaking at the University of California's Hastings College of the Law in 2010, Scalia said the Constitution didn't specifically prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.

"If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, you have legislatures," he said.

ANTI-LGBT DECISIONS
In his dissent in Lawrence, Scalia argued that moral objections to homosexuality were sufficient justification for criminalizing gay sex. "Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children's schools, or as boarders in their home," he wrote. "They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive."



In Romer v Evans Scalia wrote -- "Of course it is our moral heritage that one should not hate any human being or class of human beings," Scalia wrote, in the classic prebuttal phrasing of someone about to say something ludicrous. "But I had thought that one could consider certain conduct reprehensible—murder, for example, or polygamy, or cruelty to animals—and could exhibit even 'animus' toward such conduct. Surely that is the only sort of 'animus' at issue here: moral disapproval of homosexual conduct[.]"

ANTI-CIVIL RIGHTS/ ANTI-AFFIRMATIVE ACTION DECISIONS

The list is long and damaging, reflecting a view of jurisprudence that is, to put it mildly, racially insensitive to black and other historically disadvantaged Americans. For example, in the 2013 Shelby County v. Holder opinion, he voted with the conservative majority, agreeing against the evidence and logic that the Voting Rights Act was a “perpetuation of racial entitlement” for black and other racial minority voters.
In a series of affirmative action cases, Justice Scalia showed his true colors, vehemently opposing any use of racial consideration in college admissions. His concurring opinion in the 2014 Shuette v. Bamn decision not only rejected the programs to level imbalances in American society that the men who wrote the Constitution created but also decried previous Court decisions supporting affirmative action as a “sorry line of race based admissions decisions.”

Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch was nominated by a nationalistic white supremacist. And Neil Gorsuch idolized a homophobic, nationalistic white supremacist. Water seeks its own level. I don't care how smoothly he's answering questions or how charmed most of the white democrats seem by him. The company he kept, the company he currently keeps (his nominator) is foul because he like foul, doesn't mind foul, or can't identify foul.

That's not somebody you want on the Supreme Court until he dies. Contact your congressman and tell them, "HELL NO!" on Gorsuch.
