This discusses remarks Federal Judge Richard Posner has made (in Slate I believe, although Greenfield does not say so), which display stunning arrogance and contempt for the Constitution he has sworn to uphold, and for the society which created it.
"I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution,” he once wrote.Greenfield notes
“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart,” Judge Posner suggested, couldn’t have grasped our high tech world. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, according to him, “do not speak to today.” He dismissed it as a document based on “what those 18th-century guys were worrying about.”
““It’s funny to talk about the oath judges take to uphold the constitution since the Supreme Court has transformed the Constitution in its decisions. The oath is not really to the original constitution, or to the constitution as amended. It is to some body of law created by the Supreme Court. You can forget about the oath. That is not of significance,”
Judge Posner discovered gay marriage in the Constitution. Or rather he discovered that marriage, like the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, was more 18th century nonsense and that Judeo-Christian values were a “tradition of hate.”Greenfield is deeply and rightly concerned with the possibility that this attitude in the Judiciary will make ending America’s Immigration Disaster more difficult. He wisely remarks
Now Judge Posner has discovered a bold new right. The right of Muslims to settle in Indiana. This was one of those rights unforeseen by even the smart 18th century guys who lacked Pos’ legalistic savvy.
In his screed, Posner accuses Governor Pence, who has resisted Muslim migrant dumping in his state, of believing “without evidence” that some Syrian Muslim migrants “were sent to Syria by ISIS to engage in terrorism and now wish to infiltrate the United States in order to commit terrorist acts here…
[Posner] fails to understand that the question is not whether migrant dumping will end, but how it will end. Trump is one answer. There may be others that he will like even less.I am more concerned to point out that appointing Judges, and particularly Supreme Court Judges, from ethnic groups hostile to contemptuous of the Founding Fathers is very dangerous.
Judge Posner of course is Jewish, and the his formulation of the role of Judges is simply a reversion to the Priest-King role of the Rabbis in the shtetls of Eastern Europe, so well analyzed by Kevin MacDonald in A People That Shall Dwell Alone
Proof that deplorable instincts are present in Posner’s mind is, I submit, forthcoming in considering the totalitarian statements by his son, Eric Posner, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Posner Jr. has applauded the policy of repressing dissident speech at Universities and called for massive 3rd world immigration to this country.
Apples do not fall far from the tree.
So long as the situation remains as I described earlier this year in Supreme “Court” Priest-Kingships: No White Protestant Need Apply the American Judiciary will continue evolving into an anti-democratic instrument of ethnic vengeance and repression.
