I don’t think I need to remind you that Justice J-Lo a/k/a Sonia Sotomayor said a “wise Latina” is “more often than not” smarter than a White man.
Wise Latina’s Version of Terrorism: Harmonica Lessons
Well, judge for yourself, and based on Sonia From the Block’s comments, below, in an important terrorism case, I think maybe you’ll come to the opposite conclusion. I used to refer to her as “So-So.” But, frankly, that was being generous. She’s rock bottom, and it has nothing to do with her ethnicity, but that she was put on the court strictly because of her combined ethnicity and female plumbing.
On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case deciding whether or not previous counterterrorism laws and a portion of the USA Patriot Act barring “material support” to parties the government has designated as terrorists, violates First Amendment speech rights. But that’s a cover. Those who filed and represent plaintiffs in the case, Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, don’t give a whit about free speech or the First Amendment. They want to help terrorism supporters in America to carve out a way to finance them. All you have to do is look at the lead attorney, David Cole. He’s the American consigliere of Jihad, Incorporated, having represented such lowlifes as Mazen Al-Najjar, the Islamic Jihad operative and brother-in-law of Islamic Jihad founder and frontman, Sami Al-Arian. And he represented Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist group members Michel Shehadah and Khader Hamide and saved them from deportation. He is a frequently featured speaker on the halal rubber chicken circuit.
In this case, the plaintiffs are the PKK (a Kurdish terrorist group, whose operatives trained with Hezbollah and HAMAS in Syria) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) a/k/a the “Tamil Tigers” in Sri Lanka. But let’s be clear–the real plaintiffs here are Al-Qaeda, HAMAS, Hezbollah, and every other Islamic terrorist group that would love to get the few less-than-watchful eyes of the U.S. government off their backs and make it even easier than it already is to raise money in the U.S. for their terrorist operations.
Ostensibly, the lawyers, here, are arguing that, if there’s a disaster like a tsunami, U.S. citizens and organizations should be allowed to give tsunami advice and aid to terrorists. But that and similar excuses have already been used to funnel money to terrorist operations. That’s why they pretended Hezbollah money was going to Hezbollah “hospitals,” “orphanages,” and “children of the martyrs.” And it’s why these laws were put into place in the first place: because–newsflash!–terrorists lie, cheat, and steal . . . and they funnel money to terrorist operations that they pretended was for “humanitarian relief.” It’s an IQ test for Supreme Court Justices. If you fell for the “tsunami advice” argument–as at least two Justices, including Wise Latina, did–you failed.
Even uber-liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg, no hawk in the war on terror, gets it (for now), which is why she asked Cole:
Suppose the group is not the two that we have here, but Al-Qaeda and the Taliban?
But, sadly, two justices in particular clearly did NOT get it. While hearing the case, “Wise Latina” remarked:
Under the definition of this statute, teaching these members to play the harmonica would be unlawful.
Um, under the definition of this statute, teaching Bin Laden to blow his nose into a tissue, instead of digging for gold and eating it, would be unlawful, too. So sad, too bad. They are terrorists bent on destroying us, not seeking to learn how to play the harmonica.
What an idiot. If this is a “Wise Latina,” I think Hispanics need to sue for malpractice and deceptive advertising. And blame Barack Obama for this. While his Solicitor General Elena Kagan is eloquently defending the terrorism finance laws, he appointed this intellectually-challenged Justice to the Court.
Then, there’s the comment of the nearly-as-boneheaded-jurist, who voiced concern that the government could prohibit advice to a terrorist group on how to obtain tsunami aid or even file a legal brief.
Really, is there any reason we need to allow U.S. residents to help terrorist groups file legal briefs? And aren’t we basically doing that already, with our government doing nothing about it? It’s called, “the ACLU.”
And the tsunami BS I’ve already addressed above.
I wonder if “Wise Latina” would be dreaming up terrorists’ rights to harmonica lessons, if she or people Ms. Sotomayor knows and loves were their victims.
Well, all the “wonder”–if there was any–has certainly evaporated on one thing: A “wise Latina,” at least in this case, clearly can’t come to a better conclusion than a White man. Not even close . . . unless you count her fellow imbecile-in-a-black-robe, Justice Kennedy.
