Senators Mazie Hirono of Hawaii
Kamala Harris of California
Being Their Typical Anti-White
Male Racist Selves,
The Same Two Extremists Who Led
The Charge Against The Appointment
of Justice Kavanaugh This Past Year
Have Now Taken Up A New Charge,
That Charge is Against Catholics &
White Male Ones At That!
Put That Finger Where The Sun Don't Shine!
They are challenging the nomination of Brian Buescher
to the US District Court for Nebraska because he belongs
to a religious organization that takes positions they
describe as “extreme.” Which organization?
The Knights of Columbus.
KOC, a philanthropic social group founded in 1882,
is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal organization.
It has 2 million members who have raised more than
$1.5 billion for charity in the past decade.
Unlike, say, the University of Notre Dame, the KOC is
one of those Catholic organizations that remains, not to
put too fine a point on it, Catholic. Which is to say,
it affirms Catholic teaching, including Catholic
teaching on questions such as marriage,
sexuality and abortion. Sen. Hirono says
that these “extreme positions” should oblige
Buescher to recuse himself from any case touching
on the related issues, and both senators have pressured
the nominee to resign from the organization entirely.
She Would Make A Good Proctologist! Ouch!
What's Goin On There, Hmmm!
There are several problems with that. For one, the
Constitution explicitly forbids imposing any religious test
for public office, which is what Sens. Harris and Hirono
here propose to do for the federal judiciary. The second and
related issue is that it is not the Knights of Columbus that
opposes abortion and same-sex marriage, but the
Catholic Church. If a KOC member is ineligible to serve
on the federal bench because of the beliefs of
that organization, then every Catholic in the United States
and the world, for that matter, all 1.2 billion of them is
ineligible for similar office, since they belong to a
much larger and much more prominent organization
that is the source of those “extreme positions.”
“Extremism” is a fast-moving target. As evidence of its extremism, the Democrats cite KOC’s support of California’s Proposition 8, a ballot measure that limited marriage to one man and one woman for the purposes of state law. The measure easily won a majority — a majority of California voters. That was in 2008, when young Sen. Barack Obama was running for president as a candidate opposed to same-sex marriage, as indeed was his major Democratic primary opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton. A view held by Barack Obama and the majority of California voters in 2008 has become the equivalent of an al-Qaeda program.
