Judge Samuel Alito and the Right Wing Bullies
President Bush’s nomination of Samuel Alito to
the Supreme Court, is a very significant turning point, in terms of the
balance of power in America. With the court now clearly twisted, the Right
Wing bullies are now free to dismantle all of the achievements of the
Civil Rights movement, outlaw abortion for women and destroy numerous
social justice advancements. The record was very clear that Judge Alito
was someone who did not share an inclusive view of America. However, the
overwhelming confirmation by the Senate was yet another example of how
Democrats continue to get beaten up in the public opinion arena by the
school-yard bullies - only because they refuse to fight back in unison.
Democrats can not afford to subscribe to a policy of restraint.
