Todd Starnes went on the radio with Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association on election night and they demanded that if the Republicans take over the Senate they block all Obama judicial nominees. Why? Because the four liberal justices on the Supreme Court are “anti-American.”
Starnes also spoke about future judicial nominees who will now face confirmation votes in a GOP-led Senate. “Right now, we have to worry about activist judges that will be appointed to the bench,” he said. “You have the possibility that a Supreme Court justice may have to be nominated; these are some big, big issues.”
“God forbid a Supreme Court justice, one of the conservatives or even Kennedy, dies or leaves office while Obama is still in office,” Wildmon chimed in. “These are more than liberals…We have anti-American, ACLU-types in four positions on the Supreme Court.”
This is simply absurd rhetoric. Like “judicial activism,” all “anti-American” means is “they disagree with me.” If anyone is “anti-American,” it’s Christian theocrats like Wildmon.
