Court, Imposed Race Quotas

Schumer AngryYeah, the comma in this post’s title is actually important. This isn’t about the courts imposing racial quotas; it’s about Chuck Schumer trying to impose race quotas on the Court. Chuck Schumer had the audacity and unmitigated gall to stand on the floor of the Senate and reject one of President Trump’s judicial nominees, Marvin Quattlebaum because and, if one is to lend Schumer the hand-out of credence, only because he’s White.

Not, of course, that Schumer’s racist narrative, childish actions, or Oppositional Defiance Disorder made any difference in the outcome. The Senate voted 69-28 – that vote included 19 Dem Yea’s – to confirm Marvin Quattlebaum as a US district judge for South Carolina.

No, this was just Schumer’s cynical ploy to paint his refusal to vote for any nominee put forth by America’s President, Donald Trump as an exercise in social justice, something that Schumer has an “interesting” track record with. After all, the only thing that Schumer and the Dems have is their narrative that President Trump is racist, sexist, and xenophobic…oh yeah, and nationalist.
