Liberal racism, aka ‘political correctness’, Is Out Of Control!
What the left likes to refer to as ‘ political correctness’ is, at times, flat out discrimination! They can deny it all they want but as seen in Sen. Chuck Schumer’s announcement that he is voting against Trump’s nominee because he is white.
President Trump’s nominee for the federal judgeship, Marvin Quattlebaum, is highly qualified for the position but could be passed up for the color of his skin. Schumer points out that Quattlebaum will be replacing not one but two of Obama’s appointees.
A president replacing the previous administration’s appointees is common practice but the left has fought Trump every step of the way. This latest by Schumer is, by far, one of the brazen and disgusting reasons to ‘buck the system’ by Democrats. A group who prides themselves on their ‘forward and anti-racist’ thinking.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday voted against a nomination by the Trump administration to fill a federal judgeship — and signaled that it’s because the nominee is white.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, South Carolina, “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”
Quattlebaum’s nomination, Schumer said, replaces two black judges from South Carolina whom the Obama administration nominated to fill the position — which The Post and Courier notes has long been vacant.
“It is long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents,” Schumer said. “Having a diversity of views and experience on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”
This is political correctness run amok.
Voting against a highly qualified nominee because of the color of his skin does nothing to bring our country and nation together.
