Thoughts on Love, Sex & Entertainment


sotomayor_052609ggord-angryG. Gordon Liddy has continuously launched verbal attacks on Judge Sonia Sotomayor.   First Liddy slammed Sotomayor’s affiliation with the civil rights group La Raza — and referred to the Spanish language as “illegal alien”.


LIDDY: I understand that they found out today that Miss Sotomayor is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, “the race.” And that should not surprise anyone because she’s already on record with a number of racist comments.

Finished with the race-based attack, Liddy moved on to denigrate Sotomayor’s gender:

LIDDY: Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then.

Finally, Liddy disputed the entire idea that there’s anything wrong with the paucity of women and total lack of Hispanics on the Court:

LIDDY: And everybody is cheering because Hispanics and females have been, quote, underrepresented, unquote. And as you pointed out, which I thought was quite insightful, the Supreme Court is not designed to be and should not be a representative body.


I don’t by any means try to portray myself as the smartest rock in the box but isn’t it very unprofessional for him to make statements about her “menstruating or something”?  And if he truly did have a concern about her ability to make clear and rational decisions during her time of of month, shouldn’t it have been handled with a little more tact?

I don’t really know that much about the La Raza but I will be doing more research into the subject.  From what I understand so far the civil rights groups them is “All for the race and none for the rest”!  If this is true, I can see how her affiliation with this group could spark some uncomfortable questions.
