The One Senator I Hoped Would Vote Against Alito

After all, he is the only Klansman in the Senate, and he is 100% con-fed Democrat. Judge Alito deserves better than confirmation with Robert Byrd's vote.

Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, whose confirmation seems certain in the Republican-run Senate, padded his modest Democratic support Thursday with endorsements by Sens. Robert Byrd and Tim Johnson.

Alito already was assured the votes of at least 51 of the 55 Republicans in the 100-member chamber - enough to be put over the top - when West Virginia's Byrd and Johnson of South Dakota joined Nebraska's Ben Nelson in saying they'll vote yes.

I wish would issue a public statement requesting that Senator Byrd vote against him -- as a matter of principle, as a demonstration of his opposition to racism and bigotry in all its forms.

After all, Byrd used to head an organization that expressed contempt for Catholics, immigrants, and those of non-Anglo-Saxo heritage. Alito qualifies on two counts, and his father fit all three.

Comments on The One Senator I Hoped Would Vote Against Alito

Get over it. He has renounced that past, called it a mistake, and served as an honorable Senator for years. He quit the clan over 60 years ago, far longer than Bush has been off of cocaine.

There is nothing honorable about that sheet-wearing snake. As the only member of the US Senate to vote against BOTH African-Americans who have served on the Supreme Court, he is a disgusting disgrace and an infected boil on the body politic of America.

And give his constantly changing story on how, when, and why he became involved with the KKK (America's largest and most pernicious homegrown terrorist movement -- a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party), I dispute that he has renounced it and moved past it.

I'll let the crack (you know, that stuff you were smoking when you made the above comment) pass about the unproven allegations against the President --the seriousness of which pales in comparison to the record of the cross-burning, Negro-lynching, civil rights-filibustering senior Senator from West Virginia

Be serious for just one moment - do you sincerely believe that a current Klansman would vote for a democratic ticket over a republican one? I won't make any stupid comments about the KKK being a subsidiary of the republican party - we both know there's no official connection. But, please, tell me how you believe a Klansman would vote these days.

As we can see, Senator Byrd votes Democrat.

Couldn't stand to answer the question honestly, could you? Or, if you're not a total vacuum of intellectual honesty, please provide any evidence you have that Byrd, who has apologized for his involvement with the KKK over 50 years ago, and called it a mistake, is currently a member of the KKK?

Are you capable of seriousness or intellectual honesty? I asked how you think a current Klansman would vote, and, instead, you chose to dredge up an ancient mistake.

The senior hill-billy from West Virginia, Senator Robert Byrd, who holds the distinction of being the only Senator to vovte against both African-Americans to ever serve on the Supremem Court, shows no evidence of contrition for his sins. Even if he is not a member of the organization, he clearly adheres to its values.

And since his story has continuously changed over the years regarding when, how, and why he joined, as well as regarding the length and nature of his association with America's most despicible home-grown terorist organization, I have no reason to believe that he has ever repented of his membership.

Hell, he won't even come out and say if he ever participated in a cross-burning, much less the other reprehensible acts of racist terror that group engaged in during the time he was a member.

And as far as current Klan members voting for Republicans, I can only say that they vote against their own beliefs if they do, for the GOP has always been the real party of civil rights in this country. As an institution, we have disavowed and repudiated any member of the KKK who has even snuck on to the ballot on the GOP line, and campaigned in favor of his opponent -- as happened with David Duke, for the most notable example.

Also, who would a Communist vote for -- the Democrats or the GOP? We know the answer to that -- and you will give it if you are intellectually honest, Dan.

And before you trot out the accusation of McCarthyism, Dan, realize that I simply turned your question back on you.

|| Posted by Rhymes With Right, January 29, 2006 02:10 PM ||

Actually, RWR, I suspect that the communist would probably vote for the green party, or some other third party, but if the choice were solely between a typical democrat and a typical republican, I believe the communist would vote for the democrat. I've got no problem saying so, either. It's only you that's having problems with the truth today . . .

Since you're obviously way too afraid to admit that a typical current Klansman would vote republican (I don't know why you're so afraid to admit that - it doesn't prove that all republicans are racist, does it?), let's try a new one. Why do you think a majority of African-Americans vote for the democratic party?

|| Posted by Dan, January 29, 2006 07:18 PM ||

Absolute lack of understanding of their own self-interest -- having bought into the belief that the party of Ol'Massa is gonna take care of them.

|| Posted by Rhymes With Right, January 29, 2006 07:49 PM ||

Wow. You are so much smarter than them! You are clearly superior.

|| Posted by Dan, January 30, 2006 06:13 AM ||

I don't make that claim -- even the wisest and most decent of individuals can be deceived. And if the Democrats have managed to present their poison under the guise of goodness and right, so much more will they have to answer for.

|| Posted by Rhymes With Right, January 31, 2006 04:41 PM ||

Just remember, those wise and decent people disagree with you.
