The GOP is putting up a surprisingly stiff fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, but that won’t save us from absurdities to come. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would vote against her, but she’ll still be confirmed by the Democrat majority. President Biden nominated her so she could be the first black woman on the Court, but she couldn’t define what a “woman” is.

One may pretend this is just word games.

However, the Supreme Court must define groups because the government treats them differently. It pays to be a member of certain groups.

Judge Jackson said she wouldn’t answer hypothetical questions, but Senator Cruz brought asked about “standing.” If America is to have an official caste system, people will call themselves members of preferred groups. Why shouldn’t they? Because race and sex are objective realities, not fantasies. Our rulers and their system must reckon with this contradiction.

Republican opposition to the judge was enough to get #GOPRacists trending.

“The grilling she [Jackson] has experienced is a reminder that Black Americans are seen and often judged through a different lens than White Americans,” said the Washington Post, “and that they also have life experiences that White Americans do not share.” Wouldn’t that mean it’s hard for them to live together? It certainly makes political debate difficult. Questioning a leftist black woman is apparently blasphemy.

Brett Kavanaugh had it far worse, though the Washington Post disagrees.

Republicans asked about her judicial record and potential rulings, not lurid accusations from decades ago.

Judge Jackson got racial solidarity. Senator Cory Booker called her “my sister.”

Can they relate the same way to whites? If not, why should they govern us?

It’s not lost on me.

And, of course, we must heed “experts.”

This tweet is interesting because it is a scene from a television show. It’s just before a suicide attack against Dutch slavers, presumably the stand-in for whites today.

The GOP’s critic unintentionally makes a good point.

Many Republicans may underestimate Critical Race Theory. They think we can live in a post-racial society. White liberals who want CRT taught in school tend to be anti-white, but most white conservatives lack racial consciousness altogether.

CRT is not a fringe issue. It is being taught in schools today.

However, Critical Race Theory can be used by our side.

No, not that way. It just means that race is inseparable from law, society, and power because race is part of how we view the world. That’s why we should worry about Judge Jackson.

Her nomination is pure affirmative action. How can we trust her to rule fairly on it? She may even recognize this. To her credit, she said she’d recuse herself from an upcoming decision on affirmative action.

On another subject, many patriots are fighting bravely for their countries in Russia and Ukraine. I mourn another brothers’ war. I praise whoever meets his own standard of personal duty and honor. (Chris Roberts and I discuss the war here.) However, our rulers have not suddenly become nationalists. In Germany, the “democratic” government is spying on the alternative party.

Sure enough, the court ruled that saying the “German people should be kept ethnically intact and ‘outsiders’ should be excluded as far as possible” goes against’ the republic’s Basic Law. Wouldn’t Ukrainian nationalists say they are fighting to protect their people and sovereignty from outsiders?

It will take things like the report below to change some of our rulers’ attitudes about race.

Brentwood was already a racial battleground. However, I can’t find the facts. The University of California’s decision to stop using SATs and ACTs could have this effect, but there is no proof. Still, it’s plausible.

There are more words we can’t say:

That always seemed like a leftist slogan to me anyway.

Do we really want to talk seriously about blacks’ patience and self-control?

Since I’m honest about race, yes, minorities are treated differently. More importantly, we have direct examples of what happens to a white minority in black-run Zimbabwe and South Africa. Countless American cities give us more reasons to worry.

Imagine if there’s nowhere to escape in the galaxy . . .

(God-Emperor, save me).

Twitter briefly gave The Federalist, a conservative website, the American Renaissance treatment.

This is what Twitter did to us. Twitter backtracked for The Federalist and said the stories were “mistakenly marked.” It didn’t do that for us. What is the difference? The American justice system wouldn’t make Twitter give an answer.

Finally, white guilt in a poem.

There is no escape from whiteness. Don’t bow to this cult of the damned or its twisted invocations.

  4. Who cares? Anyone who is waiting for the Supreme Court to fundamentally change their lives for the better, is highly deluded. It’s nothing but another organization that the left and possibly the far left, is gaining control of. Kavanaugh has washed out for conservatives and Coney Barrett is the same. Sandra Day O’Connor, washed out for Reagan, also. She immediately stated that “affirmative action” might be necessary forever. If I were in the groups O’ Connor meant, I’d be enraged at the implications of her attitude.

    The most junior justice on the Supreme Court does the waitress duty until a newer justice is named. It’s a tradition.

    Do these proud people understand that she’s been nominated to get coffee and pastries into the chambers every morning?

    It is time for open war on CRT. I would prefer to see nuclear war with Russia than to let this stand. One must find one’s weapons where one can find them. Everyone has enemies. Accept it and destroy your enemies as you can when you can.

    There really is nothing to say. Hate, like love, is part of life. Hate may change over time to different objects of interest but it is not going away.

  7. What is ‘queering the library’?

    Do you get f***ed in the ass for not returning the book on time?

    Do you expand the homo section to half the library?

    Do the design the library entrance to look like an anus?

  8. This was once a joke.

    Now, not much crazier than actual law.

  9. But it is word games. Senator Blackburn set a trap for her to score some publicity for himself on Fox News, and she refused to walk into it. Lacking the killer instinct that pretty much defines success in Washington, she failed to follow it up with the attack reply that is fairly obvious. This suggests she may not be aggressive enough to defend our liberties, which more than qualifies her for a seat in America’s Star Chamber. Remember what Jefferson said about SCOTUS when Marshall announced it had the power to nullify state and federal law at whim in Marbury vs. Madison, “the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”

  10. It’s worth reprinting this abomination in full:

    I can only be forgiven by Black people
    for the million times I walked down a street
    and no one knew I was there—
    as if I were tiptoeing,
    as if I took my self back from existence.
    For the hundreds of times my mother and I
    walked the galleries at Hudson’s—
    not a dark soul to be found!—
    the furniture behind red ropes, untouchable.
    For all the places she and I
    kept eating our sandwiches.
    My mother liked minestrone soup
    on the thirteenth floor where the white
    waitresses wore dull green dresses & caps.
    I always enjoyed a hot-fudge sundae.
    Only Black people can judge me. Only they know
    the anguish inserted in history when some
    ancestor of mine took the place of one
    who went to the back. What was done
    made me. Only Black people can know—
    who I loved most;
    for whom I have done good.

    What point is she even trying to say? I’m sorry my parents gave me a pretty good childhood? White happiness is only at the expense of black misery? To call this a poem is a disservice to American letters. This reads like a yard sign. A handful of pleasant memories with pathetic groveling white guilt mixed in.

    We don’t hate bigotry, We just hate Blumpf voters.

  12. KenH says:

    The most qualified woman for SCOTUS eva can’t even define what a woman is. If the RINOs on the committee had any courage they would have asked Ketanji if she considers herself a woman.

    Negress Ketanji is so qualified and competent that they have to hide her LSAT scores from the public. She’s only served as a federal appellate court judge for less than a year so has virtually no body of work in a capacity that is critical to determining the competence of a SCOTUS nominee.

    We know she hands out light sentences to everyone perceived to be allies of the political left wing such as pedophiles and black supremacists.

    The Jewish led left, as usual, screams racism and attacks white people if Republicans dare hold Ketanji Brown to any reasonable standards or ask her tough but fair questions. Jews have turned America into a banana republic.

    At least one writer of the Anti-Federalist Papers pointed out this loophole before ratification. Although no court in England could rule an Act of Parliament unConstitutional or otherwise void at the time (except for vagueness), several courts in England were already trying to quietly expand their jurisdiction and authority. The Founders were on notice, and they screwed up. Accepting the Court’s coup in Marbury vs Madison was the US Government’s worst mistake — after the questionable ratification of the 14th Amendment, of course. Together they repealed the Constitution. Want to know who lost the War Between the States? America did.

    My exact thought at the time.

  15. “Black women intentionally & almost intuitively have to calibrate their posture & their demeanor & their tone to mitigate & lessen prevailing stereotypes.”

    Good God Almighty, when has this ever happened? Is it 1920 up in here?

    So, imagine how Black women are treated in private…

    Hmm, shouldn’t you take that up with black men? Because they’re invariably the ones mistreating black women. But we musn’t hint at that particular truth, right?

  16. JackOH says:

    How nuts is affirmative action? Below is an excerpt from the recent minutes of a trustees meeting at my local Podunk Tech. Emphasis mine.

    “Dana L., director of Equal Opportunity, Policy Development and Title IX, reported on the equal opportunity and affirmative action plan. Among the data – the percentage of female (52 percent) and minority employees (13 percent) has remained steady in the last three years. L. and Holly J., vice president for Legal Affairs/Human Resources, introduced a new system of reporting quarterly the university’s minority and female hiring goals. L. also reported on new workforce recruitment and outreach efforts, including a new talent management software system, a new campus wide classification and compensation study and revised search and hiring procedures.”

    Employees in protected categories–is that the right term?–outnumber White guys 3 to 2. Looks like goddamned lunacy–Orwellian social engineering–that has quietly hurt a lot of innocent White guys who wonder why they never got that interview with Megabucks Inc.

    The follow up question should have asked her if she, therefore, believes that matters such as women’s rights and affirmative action are meaningless, and if not, what standard, other than what it means to be a woman, she would apply.

  19. Richard B says:
    @Justvisiting

    Cori Bush talks about the “fear of black women’s intellect” but wouldn’t hesitate to call anyone asking to see her LSAT score racist. Who’s the one with the fear?

    If all of the protected groups of Identity Politics were so smart they could foresee the consequences of constantly overestimating unqualified people. But they don’t. In fact, they’re so blind they can’t see that it’s happening while they’re doing it. And what are the consequences of overestimating unqualified people?

    Cultural Impoverishment and Societal Collapse. Of course! Just look around.

    Thanks to Identity Politics civilization is collapsing faster than youc an say whiteness.

    You’ve got to love the irony. Especially when it comes from an irony-free people.

    if she has gone to law school, as she claims, then she should be VERY AWARE that there exist LEGAL definitions of the word ‘woman’ in numerous and varied contexts… so when a senator asks a lawyer for a definition, and they cannot provide any, that proves THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB!

  21. bwuce wee says:

    in a courtroom her reply of : ‘i can’t answer that, i am not a biologist’, would have been protested to the judge: ‘your honor, the witness is NON-RESPONSIVE’! and the judge would have said: THE WITNESS IS DIRECTED TO ANSWER THE QUESTION UNDER PENALTY OF CONTEMPT OF COURT FOR 30 DAYS IN JAIL! that’s how it is done is court! and she clearly should know that! so what she is really saying of: i am alreadt promised this position, and i do not need to justify myself to any of you white racists!

  22. All of this nonsense about elevating blacks to levels they never could attain otherwise, appears to have come out of Harold Covington’s novels, such as “The Brigade”. I’ve felt sooner or later that this ridiculousness would appear, just not so so fast. Anyway, I would recommend his books to anyone. They can be downloaded from the web. Frankly, our latest Supreme Court nominee appears to have I Q problems.

  23. bwuce wee says:

    if she admits that she sees herself as a woman- she surely SHOULD be able to define the word ‘woman’! ‘i am a woman- but i don’t know what a woman is’? well, that is moronic idiot talk. further, if she sees herself as a black woman- that is racist identity politics- surely something that every american reviles… right? and if she is representing onlu black women, or black people- that disqualifies her for a job which has the job description to represent every american!!!

  24. @Richard B

    Greg Hood’s view of this (which I find persuasive) is that politics is about who, not what.

    Qualifications are not the issue–the issue is who the individual represents when she has power.

    She represents black people–which means she must be the enemy of white people.

    She represents black people-which means she must be the enemy of civilization.

    She is perfectly qualified to represent black people.

    Talking about “qualifications” totally misses the point.

    Talking about “qualifications” totally misses the point.

    I disagree. Talking about how overestimating unqualified people impacts our social institutions is the only point worth talking.

    Social institutions are best seen as adaptational mechanisms. It’s any civilization’s #1 method of adaptation. If they fail, the civilization fails and the people in question move that much closer to extinction.

    And, it has to be said, that, though the reasons for this failure are many and complex, the key aspects are identifiable, especially since they were discussed in one way or another by the best minds of the West during the 19th and 20th centuries. Certainly one of the better documents on the subject came from Ortega’s The Revolt of The Masses (1929).

    His basic argument was that the population explosion introduced millions and millions of people in the West who knew nothing and cared nothing about what they had inherited or how it even got there. The obvious conclusion was that they would eventually lose that inheritance to outside forces, or corrupt forces within, or a combination of both. And they have. The US, for example, the home of the masses, is simply unsavable. It’d be like trying to unscramble an omelet.

    What’s going on with blacks now, and not just blacks, is the logical conclusion of this. The West devolved first within its own race and then the others races who adopted the West’s ideas and institutions (without being able to adapt to them) have simply followed. Only the process of devolution has been even faster with them, for obvious reasons.

    And now we’re back to why it’s relevant and useful to talk about qualifications. Especially when it comes to the social management necessary to run a civilization more complex and unpredictable than ever before.

    Conclusion

    Human beings, West and East, or whatever or wherever, are in no position to laugh at the dinosaurs for getting themselves extinct. After all, they lasted a lot longer than we have so far.

    The U.S. Supreme Shysters are nine unelected, unaccountable, ethics-free megalomaniacs. And when it comes to the protection of civil liberties and the Bill of Rights, those black-robed dictators are out to lunch. . . .

    During Kimchi Jackson Browne’s hearings, she referred to Guam as “a country” more than once, and also spoke as if Guamanians were not U.S. citizens (they are). It didn’t get any ink. Too bad. She should hook up with the nig congressgroid who worries about Guam tipping over.
