I've been pondering lately the statements coming from conservatives about Sonia Sotomayor calling her racist and claiming she is an activist judge. I'm reading an article just now written months ago by Judge John E. Jones II. Judge Jones ruled in favor of removing creationism in the schools in Dover, Pennsylvania. This article is unrelated to anything involving Sonia Sotomayor but he is describing events around the Terry Schiavo case where Republicans bullied and in some cases threatened federal judges as that whole drama was going on. In the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover, Bill O'Reilly called him a fascist and Ann Coulter calls him Godless in her book Godless for more or less reading the law as it is. Why were Bill O and Ann Coulter pissed..? Because he more or less said this isn't in the constitution.
I just want to add, Conservatives are not against activist judges and that makes me angry.
They only get angry when it looks like that its not going their way.
