Wildmon: The ACLU is ‘Anti-American’

Wildmon: The ACLU is ‘Anti-American’ November 7, 2014

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.

  • To be fair, Liberal judges are pretty bad. Their “decisions” are crippled by their critical weakness; they can’t be objective like old white conservative Christian heterosexual men are.

    If the ACLU is pro-American, why don’t they have America or Liberty in their na…oh….why don’t they spell it out?

  • dugglebogey

    This is the same trope that Sarah Palin uses, that conservatives are “real” Americans and liberals are somehow “fake.” We’re really just europeans, didn’t you know that?

  • Childermass

    They need to ask the GOP to block all Obama’s judicial appointments? I’ve been under the impression that was already the plan. They certain did it during the last year or so of the Clinton administration.

    Every nominee deserves an up or down vote only when the president is a Republican.

  • Todd Starnes looks like an even bigger douche than I pictured him.

  • pixiedust

    “…even Kennedy…”

    For some reason, that made me laugh out loud.

    “Every nominee deserves an up or down vote only when the president is a Republican”

    Except when the nominee is named Harriet Miers.

    You left out “Catholic”. At least in the case of The Supremes.
