Did Your Senator Vote to Confirm this Radical Leftist Judge? By: CR Staff https://www.conservativereview.com/search?keywords=CR+Staff&type=author | January 21st, 2016 Earlier this week, the Senate voted 58-36 to confirm an ultra-liberal judge, Wilhelmina Marie Wright, to the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. Despite the ever growing list of serious issues facing our nation, from immigration from terrorist-prone countries, ISIS controlling large swaths of the Middle East, executive overreach on a variety of issues, and the continued erosion of our most fundamental liberties, Republicans joined Democrats in confirming a judge who believes property rights are racist and thus providing an already liberal judiciary with even more influence over society. https://www.conservativereview.com/votes/s31142016 That’s right. Thirteen Republican Senators joined Democrats in confirming a nominee, who some considered to be a leftist “rising star,” to a lifetime position of immense influence and responsibility. Widely rumored to be on the liberal short list for future Supreme Court appointments, Wright has a long history of holding views antithetical to our founding documents and principles. In fact, her support of a radical idea known as “critical race theory,” is perhaps the most dangerous and shocking. When Wright was earning her law degree, as Hans Von Spakovsky illustrated earlier this week https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/01/gop-senate-on-track-to-confirm-judge-who-believes-property-rights-are-racist, Wright joined Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell in publishing several law review articles articulating what was then a newfound legal philosophy, critical race theory. The idea is anchored in the assumption that America was founded on racism and continues to be inherently racist, and white Americans have long used property to divide society along racial lines to enslave minorities, chief among them black Americans. African Americans have, as a result of this oppression, the opportunity and obligation to ignore legal codes, traditions, or other facets of society that are used to oppress them. The confirmation of this ultra liberal judge from a Republican-led Senate is even more ironic when one takes into account the context of how that GOP-controlled Senate came to be. In November 2014, Americans overwhelmingly elected a Republican Senate and expanded Republican seats in the House with the expressed goal of pushing back against President Obama’s lawless and unconstitutional agenda. Rather than fulfill that goal, this newly confirmed judge will be defending and advancing Obama’s agenda, for life.
