Tucker Carlson Calls Sotomayor Racist, Thinks Yoda Would Be Better Judge (Video)

This is a big problem! The woman not only thinks policy is made by judges, but that female, Latina judges are more qualified than white males!

Indeed, her story is wonderful and the quintessential American Dream: but that does not qualify her to be a Supreme Court Justice!

Like Obama, Sotomayor is radical beyond our wildest expectations.

Fox News analyst Tucker Carlson disapproves President Obama's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. He thinks that race and gender were "major calculations" in that decision, and thinks she should explain comments she made about those qualifications being factors in making wiser decisions. "That's a racist statement... I'm not attacking her personally, and I said dumb things myself, many, many times...I still think she must explain why she went on the record saying that because of your race or gender you are a better judge. That female, Latina judges are more likely to render wiser decisions than white, male judges"

Bill Press defends the nomination, saying "we are achieving the greatness of the American dream," to which Tucker immediately called "absurd." Then he added, "I don't care if she's green, and a Buddhist..." Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum finishes his thought: "He wants Yoda for Supreme Court judge."

Other famous quotes from Sotomayor proving how "supremely" unqualified she is to be an impartial Justices:

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” said Judge Sotomayor in 2001 at the annual Judge Mario G. Olmos Law and Cultural Diversity Lecture at the University of California, Berkeley.

“Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences,” she said, for jurists who are women and nonwhite, “our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.”

She also approvingly quoted several law professors who said that “to judge is an exercise of power” and that “there is no objective stance but only a series of perspectives.” “Personal experiences affect the facts that judges choose to see,” she said.

Judge Sotomayor questioned whether achieving impartiality “is possible in all, or even, in most, cases.” She added, “And I wonder whether by ignoring our differences as women or men of color we do a disservice both to the law and society.”

In a forward to a 2007 book, “The International Judge” (U.P.N.E.), Judge Sotomayor seemed to put a greater emphasis on a need for judges to seek to transcend their identities, writing that “all judges have cases that touch our passions deeply, but we all struggle constantly with remaining impartial” and letting reason rule. Courts, she added, “are in large part the product of their membership and their judges’ ability to think through and across their own intellectual and professional backgrounds” to find common ground.
