Are Liberals Anti-WASP?

"A chorus of black commentators and civic leaders has begun expressing frustration over (Elena) Kagan’s hiring record as Harvard dean. From 2003 to 2009, 29 faculty members were hired: 28 were white and one was Asian American."
 
CNN pundit Roland Martin slammed "Kagan’s record on diversity as one that a ‘white Republican U.S. president’ would be criticized for."

This is an excerpt from the Washington Post about the rising anger in a black community, which voted 24-1 for Obama, that one of their own was once again passed over for the Supreme Court.
 
Not since Thurgood Marshall, 43 years ago, has a Democratic president chosen an African-American. The lone sitting black justice is Clarence Thomas, nominated by George H. W. Bush. And Thomas was made to run a gauntlet by Senate liberals. 

Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.

If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.

Is this the Democrats’ idea of diversity?

But while leaders in the black community may be upset, the folks who look more like the real targets of liberal bias are white Protestants and Catholics, who still constitute well over half of the U.S. population.

Not in living memory has a Democratic president nominated an Irish, Italian or Polish Catholic, though these ethnic communities once gave the party its greatest victories in the cities and states of the North. 

What happened to the party of the Daleys, Rizzos and Rostenkowskis? 

And not in nearly half a century has a Democratic president nominated a white Protestant or white Catholic man or woman.

The last was Byron "Whizzer" White, the all-American running back from the University of Colorado, nominated by his friend Jack Kennedy. White cast one of the only two votes against Roe v Wade.

What of the record of Republican presidents?

Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford made seven nominations. All were white Protestant males: Warren Burger, Clement Haynsworth, Harrold Carswell, Harry Blackmun, Lewis Powell, William Rehnquist and John Paul Stevens.

The diversity Nixon sought was first to put a Southerner on the court. He succeeded in his third try, with Powell. And he sought to put the first woman on the court, but pulled back from nominating Judge Mildred Lillie of California when the American Bar Associated rated her unqualified.

With Ronald Reagan and Bush I came Republican diversity.

Reagan’s first choice was Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman ever nominated. His second was Antonin Scalia, the first Italian-American. When his third nominee, Robert Bork, a Protestant, was rejected, Reagan chose Bork’s Jewish colleague on the U.S. Appellate Court for the District of Columbia, Douglas H. Ginsburg. When Douglas Ginsburg was pulled because of a marijuana incident in college, Reagan chose the Irish Catholic Anthony Kennedy.

George H. W. Bush picked David Souter, a Protestant from New Hampshire, and Clarence Thomas, the second African-American to sit. George W. Bush chose John Roberts, a Catholic; Harriet Miers, the first Evangelical Christian of our era; and Sam Alito, the second Italian Catholic.

If Kagan is confirmed, the Court will consist of three Jews and six Catholics (who represent not quite a fourth of the country), but not a single Protestant, though Protestants remain half the nation and our founding faith.

If Kagan is confirmed, three of the four justices nominated by Democratic presidents will be from New York City: Kagan from the Upper West Side, Sotomayor from the Bronx, Ruth Bader Ginsburg from Brooklyn. Breyer is from San Francisco.

What kind of diversity is this — either in geography or life experience?

While Sotomayor went to Yale Law School, the other three liberals went to Harvard, though Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated from Columbia. Seems a fairly narrow range for a party that once claimed to be America’s party.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg tied for first in her class at Columbia, but neither Obama nominee is academically distinguished. Sotomayor called herself an "affirmative action baby" who, at Princeton, was urged to read children’s books in the summer to improve her reading and writing skills. Kagan never served as a judge, never litigated a case before being named solicitor general, never wrote a book or anything else anyone has turned up that manifests real legal scholarship.

From her Princeton thesis on the sad demise of 20th-century socialism, to her tears at the defeat of the radical liberal Senate candidate Elizabeth Holtzman in 1980, to her hostility to the U.S. military on the Harvard campus while dean of the law school, Kagan has revealed herself to be one more Ivy League leftist anxious to use a lifetime seat on the court, winning the plaudits of her peers by imposing her ideology on a nation that has never voted for it. 

Conservatives will not soon get another opportunity like this to take down Ivy League pretensions to represent and rule America.

    The Whole “Religion” of the U.S. is anti-wasp. It’s entire cultural production is based on degrading the ethnicity of the founders (there were no jewish signers and only one catholic, not only because they are different peoples, evidenced by their inability to “assimilate,” clear in their “takeover” of social institutions, but because they had been involved in genociding the founders families in Europe. (For instance, Paul Revere and Alex Hamilton were Hugenots.) Many, especially the settlers of the “Bible Belt” were graduates from the lovely “Ulster Plantations,” and so on, (the Ulster Scots whose real history has been all but obscured to them today, under a barrage of “pro-Irish” Hollywood movies.

    The anti-southern meme is another example. “South” is just a code word for Northern European protestants. The “New South” (it has a wiki entry, look it up) is the south resettled by the “white ethnics” (code for jews and catholics). This is a mass movement of non wasp populations into where they have lived for centuries. It is policy driven, it moves in a foreign culture (white also, though it may be)—- made FUNNY by the fact that really the Portuguese and Spanish ran the entire transatlantic slave trade, look it up. They spend much time trying to erase the real history of slavery and blame all world slavery on a relatively small group of anglos.

    The history of the Irish in America, in undermining the documents of freedom the country once had will some day be written. Hart- of the Hart-Celler Act was an Irish Catholic Banker, and Celler was Jewish. One group got the open border, used to completely romanize the u.s. government, and to take over the country, and the other got limitless funding for Israel. But in the end, in a sense, both will lose, in that the country is violent, any real, organic, positive culture, outside strict propaganda is largely nonexistent, and more. So, their children live with their sort of “cultural production”—- instead of Emily Dickenson, or the countless authors of beauty in the previous u.s., they have “games” in arenas, stadium, with criminality as the subtext, just like Rome, and Madonna and Lady Gag (grads of the same catholic school), the propagandists for Rome, in Tarantino, Scorcese, Coppolla, etc.

    And this is the life they brought to the u.s. shores. If anything, it has shown the children of the real founders what these people from Europe were made of, and why their own families sought in any way they could to escape from them, and to create what the u.s. used to be. If anything, it has made even the catholics flee their religion, lol—- the loss of White catholics is the largest loss of any religion, according to pew— and just like in Europe, the ones who say they are that don’t really even know what they are supposed to believe in; religions that create their “country” by violence (the only reason europe was catholic) create people who simply dissimilate and lie. After centuries, that religion has degraded europe, without any doubt. The U.s. has only become romanized, due to Irish mostly and Italians using their positions in the u.s. government to serve Rome, and to open the border to South America, which has transformed the demographic of America, in only 50 years—– something that, in school, we were taught (over and over, ad naseum) is Genocide.

    To be rid of Northern Europeans and protestants—- that is an open goal. It is stated in the news, lol. Hannity falls over himself about his “meritocracy” (where he is on top!) LOL— when he talks at the same time about the “Welfare State” that his own people had to put in place for the illusion of success. (They administer to the “poor” (while stamping on the money which isn’t theirs, which is stealing) by collecting taxes. It is a Welfare-Warfare State.

    This Welfare-Warfare state—- suits the catholics and jews, in the sense that communism is an extension of Judaism (tomes exist on this) and fascism is the natural expression of political catholicism (tomes exist on this, too). Militarist-Corporatism is all that catholicism has ever created on the globe, and it is well known for it.

    The Northern European protestants—– created, instead, a constitutional republic. And this is an extension of their way of life, their culture. Neither jews, nor catholics, were able to live comfortably within it, or so it seems. Both have a simple will to power, and a will to concentrate “public” wealth, and then to appropriate it for themselves (“Nanny State” / neo-feudalism/ the “left-right’ hybrid, etc.)

    Both— when they came from Europe, came as administrative classes under fascism or communism. By infiltrating u.s. government, they have worked well together to centralize the money of the Creative classes (more generational americans)—- while, they, themselves, have contributed little in terms of Creativity, and producing new wealth— but rather the primitive form of Warfare economy (living on others through spoils) and Welfare (administering to the poor THEY CREATE, while taking the money for others’ to do so, and feeling good about themselves as moral creatures, even as they steal).

    So go the “administrative” classes the u.s. had the poor fortune to intake from Europe, via both the communist and fascist difficulties there, largely at the turn of the last century.

    The “white ethnics” as they were called, hated the founders in europe, and they hated them in the u.s. Using often “proxy populations” (black and brown folks) they try to ensure that no voice of the real founders will be heard again.

    Be that as it may—- the best thing to be is an American Wasp, perhaps. The legacy of Northern Europe, as opposed to the horrors of southern europe, is something about which they can be truly proud. And they have the best seat in the house— in terms of watching other groups in action. Surely, the Spanish and Portuguese will start to come clean soon in Hollywood, about the real legacy of slavery among them? Surely, the pope himself, will apologize to the children of the founders for the genocides against them in Europe? For the continued teaching of how glorious it was to do in “heretics,” to “save europe?”

    Or not, lol. One thing is certain—- the Northern European Protestant commitment to producing a governance that could provide the CONDITIONS of sustained and creative life—– are not part of the vision of others. (A Warfare-Welfare Statist situation is the opposite of a form that will create ongoing, positive, organic-cultural, life.

    And due to this, the idea of “life” itself has become dumbed down to mean things such as “anti-abortion.” The combination of a commitment to “radical diversity” (multi-racialism/multi-nationalism) ALONG WITH an only two-party system, with only a few “pre-approved issues” which both discuss (gays, abortion, economy, education)—- shows a cynicism difficult for many cultural wasps to even understand.

    At heart, what are such “human subjects”—- who come from these other religions and ethnic groups who are in “power” —these european catholics and jews? How can they so easily accept such a “dumbed down” world, such horrifying cultural “artifacts” as what their “culture” puts out. Don’t they care that this is what their children know and learn? How they learn to “be” in the world? And so on?
