Groundhog Day! Al Sharpton Race-Baits!


During a hearing in the Supreme Court on Tuesday over affirmative action, Justice Antonin Scalia made a comment about the 14th Amendment, saying it protects everybody and not “only the blacks.” Needless to say, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton was positively shocked by this and had some tough words for the Supreme Court justice.

He asked, “Is this the kind of tone-deaf language we should be hearing in the nation’s highest court in the year 2013?”

Here’s Scalia’s comment in full:

“We’ve held that the 14th Amendment protects all races. I mean, that was the argument in the early years, that it protected only the blacks. But I thought we rejected that.”

I’m not exactly sure what Reverend Al was upset about but I will happily answer his question:

Yes it is.

The Supreme Court of the United States should be tone-deaf. They should be color-blind too. Public opinion is for politicians. Judges weigh evidence and apply facts to law. Appellate and Supreme Court Justices interpret law and determine whether laws are constitutional.

Here is what the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution says:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
(Emphasis added)

It doesn’t mention skin color.

    I wonder what chickenshit sent me to Twitter Gulag?

      Don’t start tweets with someone ‘s username. Somehow Twitter considers that a private tweet and trolls can use it to accurately you of spamming.

    The 14th Amendment as it relates to blacks is the personal property of Al Sharpton. It is his own personal sugar daddy. For some white person to come along and usurp his preeminent rights is not fair. Scalia needs to apologize.

    hope this takes. MLK had a dream, backtrack the first black president shut it down

    Al Sharpton is race-baiting? It must be Tuesday.

    If you want a laugh, go read this Kos diarist (h/t John Nolte on Breitbart) who’s health insurance premiums have doubled thanks to Obamacare. His conclusion says it all:

    “I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fucking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?”

    It’s what you voted for, you ignorant fuck — in fact, you called the rest of us “racists” when we tried to warn you about it instead of actually investigating what was actually *in* the ACA.

    Especially good are the comments accusing him of lying/being a “sleeper” right-wing rat fucker; and/or that he should be happy that he now has “better” insurance & holding out hope that it is OK to pay more because it is better for the country

      We were laughing our asses off at this in previous thread. Morons.

      • angienc says:

        Sorry — I’ve been out. I’ll go read it now.

        Best part is the Kos’ Kid’s ending line “What am I missing?”

        Um, critical analysis skills for starters. 🙂

    Maybe he can smear feces on some girl and have her accuse Scalia of something.

    The criminals like Al will keep on getting away with what they re doing until they hit a wall ..I wish Ted Cruz had come along sooner , but the fact of Obamacare and the burden it will place on the people of this country might be the wall these hypocrites slam into . I hope so , and I hope I get to see it.

    Muslim families push Montgomery County for school holiday to mark Eid al-Adha

    GERMANTOWN, Md. — Muslim families in Montgomery County are pushing to make the Islamic holy day Eid al-Adha a full-fledged school holiday.

    Muslim leaders have started a petition in recent weeks and have won support from some elected leaders and religious groups. Montgomery County has a growing Islamic population, though there are no county or census figures on the Muslim community.
    This year, the Eid al-Adha holiday falls on Tuesday. Some families plan to keep their children home from school, even though they will miss classes and sporting events. But they point out that school is closed for Christmas, Good Friday, Easter and for the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

    “It’s like we don’t feel equal to other people who get their holidays off,” said Hannah Sharim, 14, who is a sophomore at Northwest High School in Germantown.

    Former state legislator and co-chair of the new Equality for Eid Coalition Saqib Ali said this is a civil rights issue.
    School officials said they give excused absences to students who are absent for religious holidays but that they can’t legally close schools for religious reasons. They said granting a day off requires a secular reason, such as minimizing the impact on instruction because of high absenteeism rates on a holiday.

    The stories just keep rolling in:

  12. wmcb says:

    Her whole timeline is about her bus trip to OK, seeing young woman trying to log on to ACA site. Asked her if she knew anything about Ocare. She started educating. Before she was done, 10 people were pretty pissed off.

    • wmcb says:

      She storified the whole timeline. Graphs and all. Handy reference.

        I noticed that New York is one of only 4 states where premiums go down. Remember when the media had a bunch of stories about how great Obamacare in New York was going to be?

        New York premiums will be lower because NY is the costliest Medicaid state in the country. Not per capita. New York spends more than California IN TOTAL in health care costs because they cover the endtire slate of Medicaid options.

        Today I broke into the half-assed password protected Excel sheet NY uses for plan premiums. It comes out to about $500/mo and almost no one qualifies for subsidies.

      I knew blame the insurance companies was coming. Knew it, knew it, knew it. IF “If you liked your plan and it covered the minimum essential health benefits you could have kept it. It was the insurance company’s decision to cancel it.” is part of their official Obamacare spiel that they are telling customers/consumers there are going to be fireworks. The IT implosion is nothing compared to insurance companies “loosing” the exchange applicants. And that stuff about paper applications sent to insurers to circumvent the federal governments incompetence-forget it. That will be lost too. Expect major pushback from insurance companies. What a clusterfuck.

      • votermom says:

        Ooh, insurance companies helped write Obamacare and now Obama’s stabbing them in the back?
        Boo fluking hoo

        • Lulu says:

          Yeah. It is to laugh. Lay down with Obama and get his fleas. And the employers who dumped people on the exchanges will be blamed too since they tacitly approved of it to “cut costs”. I love a good circular firing squad from a distance of course.

        • jeffhas says:

          There’s no problem with Obamacare… Tommy signed up and is just waiting to pick his plan….

  15. OT. So the winner for the title of Today’s Dumbest Congress Critter is: from Southern California (it figures).
