Here is another interesting tidbit. The news story hitting multiple web sites today is that Judge Sonya Sotomayor ruled in favor of pro-life protesters, from Operation Rescue, saying that the West Hartford, CT, Police used excessive force with the protesters. 261 protesters were injured at the event at the hands of the police.
Sotomayor wrote in her opinion:
"It is undisputed that the police were forced to employ some degree of physical coercion in order to arrest the protesters and remove them from the premises. Plaintiffs allege, however, that the police responded with far more force than was necessary, and inflicted severe pain on the demonstrators by dragging them out of the building by their elbows, using choke holds, and lifting them off the floor by their wrists. Moreover, one officer allegedly shoved and pinned a sitting protester's head to the floor with his foot, and some threatened those who were praying aloud that they would "get more" if they "kept crying out in praise of the Lord." The protesters who were subjected to this treatment "screamed" in pain, and the demonstrators assert that they could hear the continuous screams and protestations of their fellow arrestees."
Now this can be viewed as just an excessive force ruling, but boy are the militant Libs stricken with fear. They are in total meltdown mode. Our Supreme Court nominee allows people to cry out, "Praise the Lord!" in public? She is not throwing the book at these people trying to rob us of our rights?
Sleaze portal the Daily Kos is writing multi-volume dissertations on how Sotomayor is really a closet Conservative. They are self imploding with paranoia. The Daily Kos was the newspaper that reported the horrendous lie that Trig Palin was actually Sarah Palin's daughter's baby. It seems the first to unleash the dogs on a helpless teenager without any proof, is also the first to unleash the dogs on one of their own without any proof. Speaks volumes of their character and tolerance. Gestapo-like, isn't it?
God and Country reports:
"Nancy Keenan, president of Naral Pro-Choice America, urged supporters to press senators to demand that Judge Sotomayor reveal her views on privacy rights before any confirmation vote.
"Discussion about Roe v. Wade will—and must—be part of this nomination process," Ms. Keenan wrote. "As you know, choice hangs in the balance on the Supreme Court as the last two major choice-related cases were decided by a 5-to-4 margin."
The President of NARAL is now thinking NARAL may have gotten the shaft from Obama? Really, you can't trust this guy?
Wouldn't it be an unforeseen and unplanned course of events if the Liberals were the ones to torpedo this nomination?
