A terrible ruling and quite possibly a conflict of interest, with the Supreme Court ruling on previously ruled cases may indeed be the undoing of hopeful Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor. Several previous cases and the rulings thereto coupled with the involvement of left-wing political action groups are beginning to open Pandora’s Box around Sonia Sotomayor.
Sonia Sotomayor helped lead an advocacy group that pushed legal theories about employment and race much like the one scotched by the Supreme Court Monday, according to documents released Wednesday as part of her confirmation process.
Perhaps even more disconcerting is Sonia Sotomayer’s involvement with hard left activist organizations such as the National Council of La Raza as well as the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund.
The Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund filed several lawsuits on behalf of minority employees alleging that promotional examinations were racially biased, obtaining judgments or settlements that guaranteed their promotion, sometimes ahead of white employees with higher scores.
In a very recent case ruled on by the Supreme Court that over-ruled one of Sotomayor’s earlier cases where several minority firefighters were promoted ahead of their white counterparts, although the latter had more experience and higher test scores.
The Puerto Rican group brought a similar complaint against the New York City Sanitation Department, alleging that its “Supervisor Examination has a severe disparate impact upon Hispanic test-takers,” the 1987 report says, because their pass rate was 37% compared with a white pass rate of 83%. It noted that at the time only 27 of about 1,163 supervisors were Hispanic.
However in the most recent developments vis-a-vie Sonia Sotomayor she also ruled against the appeal of an earlier situation that included a State’s right to ban guns or not. According to Sotomayor, the 2nd Amendment does not apply to the states. Therefore, are we to conclude that none of the U.S. Constitution Bill of Rights pertains to the states as well? Furthermore, according to Freedom Magazine, Sotomayor states, “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.” (U.S. v. Sanchez-Villar, 2004).
Furthermore, we did not want to be hasty and jump to conclusions about this woman’s ethos. However, sufficient time and evidence support that this power-mongering judge is in fact a racist that will stop at nothing to ensure her personal agenda — even the law she’s sworn to uphold.
