History Was Made Today As Ketanji Brown Jackson Became The First Black Woman To Become A Justice On The Supreme Court. The Senate Voted To Confirm Her With A Vote Of 53 To 47, With Republican Senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowsky, And Susan Collins Breaking With The MAGA Oppositionist GOP. Justice Jackson Navigated The Racist, Misogynistic, Hypocritical Attacks On Her During Her Confirmation Hearings By Senators Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, And Josh Hawley With Professionalism, Confidence, And Showed Her Worthiness To Serve On The Court And Exposed The Low Character Of These Corrupted Senators.
“On a scale of 1 to 10, how faithful would you say you are, in terms of religion”?
“And your faith matters to you. What faith are you, by the way?”
” Do you feel you could judge a Catholic person fairly?”
“Did you watch the Kavanaugh hearings? […] He was ambushed. How would you feel if we did that to you?”
” It sounds like your sentencing means you don’t think child porn online is not that bad.”
Graham’s outrage about child pornography was seen by those who know his record as an airforce attorney and judge as grossly hypocrtitical. Despite the military’s history of light sentencing for it’s members found guilty of engaging in child pornography, ” Graham was an Air Force lawyer for 30 years. He did nothing to fix military leniency toward child porn offenders (Salon, April 8, 2022).
Graham should be confronted with his own political tactics. Imagine how the hissy-fit king would react if he was asked:
“Do you agree with Governor Ron DeSantis’s ” don’t say gay” law
” Do you support gay marriage?”
“Do you agree with banning transgender individuals from the military?”
“On a scale of 1 to 10, how important is someone’s sexual orientation to you?”
Senators Hawley, Graham, and Cruz prove how useless an Ivy League education is if not paired with high moral values and common sense. As they made embarrassing spectacles of themselves during the hearings, Judge Jackson calmly responded by saying:
“What we’re trying to do is be rational in our dealing with some of the most horrible kinds of behavior,” she said. “This is what our justice system is about.”
