“Ye shall know them by their fruits.” The press would do well to take this passage to heart. Basically, judge people by what they do.
After failing to examine most of President Obama’s peccadilloes in the run up to the 2008 election, the press is about to make the same mistake again. Taking only one failure, the press refused to hammer President Obama on his 20 year association with Rev. Wright’s racist congregation. Most of America did not focus on President Obama’s association with racists because the press determined it to be irrelevant. President Obama’s sitting in pews for 20 years as a “man of God” preached vile racial insults has no bearing on President Obama’s fitness, according to the press.
Fast forward to President Obama’s first Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sotomayor. Judge Sotomayor has stated that as a Latina, her rich experience renders her a better jurist than white men. The Kansas City Star has already started to explain away Judge Sotomayor’s judicial philosophy here. Apparently, racism is OK as long as it is discussed in a conference on gender and ethnicity on the bench. Leaving aside for the moment the glaring double standard here, ‘Puter would like to examine the Kansas City Star’s easy dismissal of Judge Sotomayor’s membership in La Raza.
La Raza’s website is here, and it speaks for itself. According to its website, La Raza (or, in English, “the race”) is a benign Latino advocacy group. La Raza funds the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (“MEChA”) MEChA is a radicalist movement dedicated among other things to the return of the American Southwest to Mexico. Also, MEChA has the punchy little slogan “[f]or The Race, everything. Outside The Race, nothing.” La Raza has consistently failed to reject MEChA’s overt racism and continues to fund its activities. See former Rep. Norwood’s (R-GA) synopsis in Human Events here. Readers can make their own judgment about La Raza and its fruits.
President Obama kept company with racists for 20 years, and was not held to account. Judge Sotomayor is a member of an organization that, at a minimum, funds a radical racist agenda. ‘Puter respectfully suggests we judge President Obama and Judge Sotomayor by their fruits: the racist company they chose to keep.
Always right, unless he isn’t, the infallible Ghettoputer F. X. Gormogons claims to be an in-law of the Volgi, although no one really believes this.
’Puter carefully follows economic and financial trends, legal affairs, and serves as the Gormogons’ financial and legal advisor. He successfully defended us against a lawsuit from a liquor distributor worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid deliveries of bootleg shandies.
The Geep has an IQ so high it is untestable and attempts to measure it have resulted in dangerously unstable results as well as injuries to researchers. Coincidentally, he publishes intelligence tests as a side gig.
His sarcasm is so highly developed it borders on the psychic, and he is often able to insult a person even before meeting them. ’Puter enjoys hunting small game with 000 slugs and punt guns, correcting homilies in real time at Mass, and undermining unions. ’Puter likes to wear a hockey mask and carry an axe into public campgrounds, where he bursts into people’s tents and screams. As you might expect, he has been shot several times but remains completely undeterred.
He assures us that his obsessive fawning over news stories involving women teachers sleeping with young students is not Freudian in any way, although he admits something similar once happened to him. Uniquely, ’Puter is unable to speak, read, or write Russian, but he is able to sing it fluently.
Geep joined the order in the mid-1980s. He arrived at the Castle door with dozens of steamer trunks and an inarticulate hissing creature of astonishingly low intelligence he calls “Sleestak.” Ghettoputer appears to make his wishes known to Sleestak, although no one is sure whether this is the result of complex sign language, expert body posture reading, or simply beating Sleestak with a rubber mallet.
‘Puter suggests the Czar suck it.
