Politically correct liberals uniformly denounce IQ tests or even any mention of intelligence. Even the SAT test (for college admissions) is being changed to be less like an IQ test, because of pressure from liberal college deans trying to fill affirmative action quotas. But now, the US Supreme Court wants to use IQ tests to determine who gets executed and who does not! [Ring v. Arizona, 2002]

This may be the biggest judicial abuse of IQ tests since the Supreme Court declared "Three generations of imbeciles are enough." [Buck v. Bell, 1927] There it endorsed sterilizing women of low IQ.

Mainstream liberals praised Holmes's judicial philosophy, and they praise the current decision. I guess measuring IQ is ok when it suits their political agenda, and not otherwise.
