I remember, and it was only a few years ago, but once upon a time in this country we were told (rightfully so) that you judge people by the content of their character, by their deeds.
Somehow in the last few years the media and their political arm, the Democrat Party, have gone so far off the rails that they are officially defining racial supremacists in charge of the most important parts of the DOJ. Yes, Seriously.
Fox News reports:
Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland defended Kristen Clarke, the attorney tapped to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division, during a heated exchange with Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, at his confirmation hearing on Monday.
Clarke, Biden’s nominee to serve as assistant attorney general for civil rights, drew scrutiny in recent weeks over a resurfaced 1994 letter she co-authored to the Harvard Crimson. Clarke presented the letter as a denouncement of findings in the controversial book called “The Bell Curve,” which suggested that intelligence was linked to genetics and environmental factors.
In the letter, Clarke wrote, among other things that “Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites” and “Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities.” While Clarke has maintained that the intent of her letter was misinterpreted, critics, including Lee, have questioned her fitness to hold office in the DOJ.’
Uh, melanin is what determines the color of your skin … if you flip flopped the race being held out to be ‘superior’ this could easily pass for an Adolf Hitler quote. Yes, that Hitler, and no, I’m not abusing Godwin’s law on this one.
What the hell happened to judging people based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin?
Fox News went on:
‘Lee referenced the situation in a question to Garland, kicking off a tense exchange.
“Would an individual’s past statements as an adult declaring that one racial group is superior to another, would statements like that be relevant to an evaluation of whether such a person should be put in charge of running the Department of Justice’s civil rights division?” Lee asked the attorney general nominee.
“I’ve read, in the last few days, these allegations about Kristen Clarke, who I’ve also gotten to know, who I also trust, who I believe is a person of integrity, whose views about the civil rights division I have discussed with her and they are in line with my own,” Garland said in response. “I have every reason to want her. She is an experienced former line prosecutor of hate crimes and we need somebody like that,” Garland said before being interrupted by Lee.
“I’m not asking about her as a person, I’m asking about the statement,” Lee said.
“All I can tell you is that I’ve had many conversations with her about her views about the civil rights division, about what type of matters she would investigate,” Garland said.’
Hey, Mr. Garland, I can tell you, with certainty that there are THOUSANDS of lawyers who are not racial supremacists that you can appoint to this position. Why are we picking this hill to (politically) die on?
Once again, imagine if AG Barr, or any one else in the Trump Administration said that white people are superior because of the gene that determines their skin color … it would be absurd, it would be WRONG and no way in hell would we support them. PERIOD. FULL STOP.
