No More Magic

From the Big Hollywood blog comes this insightful piece by Michael S. Rulle Jr.:

The 'Magic Latina'

The final paragraphs are key:

"Sitting back and being afraid to be called racist is not what is needed from the Republicans. They should disband rather than follow that route. Sotomayor should be compelled to explain her past statements for the public to hear.

We don’t need Magic Negroes, Magic Latinas, or Magic Caucasians in politics or our judiciary."

Darn right, Mr. Rulle, except I have yet to run across a Magic Caucasian that wasn't an entertainer that performs feats of prestidigitation, but has no 'magical powers' like those mentioned in the article.

We don't need any more activist judges on the SCOTUS.

I have little hope after they let Ginsberg in without a murmur...

jan: I agree. This mediocre affirmative action hire will be shoved down our collective throats because we have no way of stopping her. We can at least make her obvious flaws evident for the historical record.

If a white male had made the kind of comments Sotomayor is on the record making, they would've been tarred & feathered. Sotomayor's comments are racism in my book.

cube-- Ditto that! I am so tired of "reverse racism" which is in reality actual racism... that I don't know what to do anymore. This is just awful.

Thank you for this article.

Great points here, sometimes sattire is the best way to get a point across. I just found your blog, was sent here from Ananda girl - I like what I see. I am following you now, could you do the same?

That our left seems to not see the point behind our reminding them "have a white male say that and see what happens!" speaks volumes for how they voted for obama, Cube.

I agree. This is something I have been saying for awhile. The GOP is going to be criticized by the media for whatever they say, they might as well score some points while doing it. The GOP will never be relevant agian until it stops apologizing for everything it says.

I'm with Ananda, we need to outright ban the term "reverse discrimination". There is no such thing. Discrimination is discrimination.

cube said...

Ananda Girl: Glad you liked the article. I agree with you that reverse racism IS racism. Period. We shouldn't be afraid to call a spade a spade.

LeftCoastRebel: Already done. Thanks for stopping by.

Z: The left isn't much into thinking about the consequences
of their actions. They choose what reality they want to see and blame the bad stuff on Bush or previously on Reagan or previously on Nixon.

cube said...

Chuck: Exactly. Stop apologizing GOP! You are going to be skewered whatever you say or do, so you might as well get something out of the deal. I think Cheney understands this principle, but very few other republicans do.

The GOP needs to get some backbone for a change.
I'm seriously thinking about becoming an Independent because my party has been disappointing me for far too long.
NO Republican candidate for the SCOTUS could EVER get away with saying what Sotomayor said and still be a candidate for the court. That person would have already been tarred, feathered, roasted, mocked, and crushed by the Dems and the media.
