Have They Finally Gone Too Far?

Make sure you read this post from Power Line as soon as possible. Ask yourself if the cartoon used by the Black Commentator, the NAACP, and PFAW were used by conservatives to protest a Clinton judicial nominee (or hell, in any context) what the scope of outrage would be amongst the Left. Every physical stereotype of African-Americans are included in this depiction of Justice Janice Rogers Brown. It's crude, it's disgusting, and it should be unacceptable for anyone interested in fair-minded debate. I'm not saying it should be outlawed -- they have a right to create this -- but it should generate outrage from the same people who are using it to further their purported political goals of equality and fair treatment.

I don't know what Justice Brown's credentials are for the position -- I haven't read enough yet to have a grasp -- but I do know that if this is how the radicals on the Left intend to attack her, they must not have any real issues to provide. That they would sell out to this extent reveals their true aims and their true character. We need an effective opposition in this country, but so far these organizations have provided nothing but paranoid, hysterical, empty rhetoric. Write or e-mail your Senators immediately and ask if this is how they intend to let business be handled in the US Congress. If they don't see anything wrong with this, it's time to replace them.
