Merrick Garland emotionally recalls Jewish roots in accepting Supreme Court nominationHere are my observations.
If confirmed, Garland would be the fourth Jewish justice on the nation’s highest court. New Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland credited his Jewish grandparents, who he said fled to the US from anti-Semitism in Russia, for putting him in position to be nominated.
“My family deserves much of the credit for the path that led me here. My grandparents left the Pale of Settlement at the border of western Russia and Eastern Europe in the early 1900s, fleeing anti-Semitism and hoping to make a better life for their children in America,” he said, choking up Wednesday morning in the White House Rose Garden as he accepted President Barack Obama’s nomination.
Born to a Jewish mother and a Protestant father, Garland was raised as a Jew. ...
Garland is a graduate of Harvard Law School and clerked for US Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr. In 1987, he married fellow Harvard graduate Lynn Rosenman in a Jewish ceremony at the Harvard Club in New York. Rosenman’s grandfather, Samuel Rosenman of New York, was a state Supreme Court justice and a special counsel to two presidents, Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
If confirmed, Garland would be the fourth Jewish justice on the nation’s highest court, which is comprised entirely of Jews and Catholics. The three current Jewish members are Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elana Kagan and Stephen Breyer.
Garland comes from a high-status and high-privilege background, and is not an underdog.
Jews are not underdogs, as they are gaining control of our most powerful institutions.
Barack Obama would never have appointed a white Christian male. The reason is not that whites are privileged, because he is perfectly happy appointing a privileged Harvard grad, while all the other justices came from Harvard or Yale.
Democrats count on the courts to do their dirty work for them. Hillary Clinton recently announced that she is in favor of the death penalty, but she would breathe of sigh of relief, if the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.
Obama and Clinton are liberals, but not Jews. So why the eagerness to appoint Jews to the Supreme Court? Why do they need 4 out of 9 to be Jewish, when Jews are only 2% of the population?
An anonymous comment says:
Jews have been causing trouble in Europe for at least two thousand years. I would hardly regard them as the scapegoats of tyrants, more the root cause of discontent in Europe and also worldwide. They have been deported from more nations than any other immigrant group. When many different peoples all end up reacting similarly to one group, one does not blame every other group as being tyrannical or evil. One sees the truth that the problem is with that one group that so many different peoples ended up disliking. Jews are genetically inclined to treat other Jews as family rather than simply other members of a racial or ethnic group. This means they act nepotistically wherever they go. The best way for them to hide their behaviour is to shout the loudest for equality but hypocritically never ever applying it to themselves. They are biological warfare on the peace of nations.I found this timeline of two millennia of Christendom persecution of Jews, including deportations. Many of these items are just statements of theological differences, or discouraging intermarriage. Jewish groups also state theological differences, and discourage intermarriage. For the most part, Christendom tolerated the continued presence of Jews and allowed them to live under their own laws.
I do not really have any quarrel with Jews pursuing their ethnic interests. Most ethnic groups do, except for white Christians. But why are non-Jewish Democrats so eager to appoint Jews? Couldn't Obama better pursue his ethnic interests by appointing an African-American?
My guess is that Obama does not really relate to African-Americans that much, and that his interest in undermining white Christianity is much greater. And appointing Jews to the Supreme Court is the most reliable way.
Update: The Univ. of California Board of Regents has just declared:
Anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and other forms of discrimination have no place at the University of California ...I guess this is an example of Jews demanded equality of others (calling it non-discrimination) while they would never accept it for themselves. If no one is allowed to criticize Zionism, then no one should be allowed to criticize White Nationalism either, or any other nationalist movement.
Update: California slightly modified the language.
