Democrat hypocrisy over Alito

--posted by Tony Garcia on 1/07/2006

The Drudge Report is reporting that the Democrats intend to take Samuel Alito over the coals to "destroy" him. Over what? His distant past associations with a group accused of being "racist and sexist."
Senate Democrats have put into place a plan that includes one last push to take down the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito as he heads into his confirmation hearing next week, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Senate Democrats intend to zero in on Alito’s alleged enthusiastic membership to an organization, they will charge, that was sexist and racist!

Democrats hope to tie Alito to Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP).

Alito will testify that he joined CAP as a protest over Princeton policy that would not allow the ROTC on campus.
Hmm, can we bring up Robert Byrd's association with the murderous and racist Klu Klux Klan?

Here's the slimy part.
One Democrat Hill staffer involved in their strategy declared, “Put a fork in Scalito. It doesn’t matter that Alito didn’t write it, it doesn’t matter that Alito wasn’t that active in the group, Foote wrote it in CAP’s magazine and we are going to make Alito own it.”
Can we bring up the fact that Robert Byrd was leader of a KKK chapter? Do the Democrats try to destroy him? No, of course not. Why? Because they do not care about facts, they do not care about right vs. wrong and they do not hold any type of principles or standards. The only thing that matters to them is allegiance to the socialist/communist/liberal agenda without equivocation. To avoid being attacked with fabricated accusations you must check your principles and morals at the door. That is the Democrat way.

The final witness on the Senate Democrats newly unveiled witness list for Alito’s hearing is freelance journalist Stephen Dujack.

Dujack is a ’76 Princeton graduate and a longtime critic of CAP.

Dujack was the author of a highly critical 1986 op-ed in the PRINCETON ALUMNI WEEKLY titled “The Contradictions Of CAP.” Dujack slammed the group for its policies opposing Princeton's decision to admit women and minorities.

Dujack now says: "Judge Alito will have to explain to the Senate Judiciary Committee why he paid dues to an outfit... that was overtly racist and sexist for its entire 14-year existence — at times passionately so, too."

Dujack adds: "There is no way for Alito's backers to claim his association with the organization does not imply endorsement of its views, for opposition to women and minorities at Princeton was as central to CAP as opposition to drunken driving is to MADD."
Hmm, you mean like Robert Byrd and the KKK and murder, assault and racism? Using the same logic that the Democrats are planning to use we should be able to assail all Democrats as being racists because Robert Byrd started a KKK chapter. (And that is the same broken line of thinking the Democrats have been using to assail Republicans for the "culture of corruption" crap.)

How about this...treat him the way Ginsburg was treated. She was not "destroyed" because of her association with anti-American groups like the ACLU. Republicans put the partisanship aside for Ginsburg. Why? Because it was the Constitutional right of the President to appoint whomever he chose. As long as they were not a criminal they should be confirmed. End of story. And to do otherwise is wholly Constitution-hating.

The strategy, if you want to call it that by those opposing Alito, is weak. It's so weak I call it "The CAP Strategy Against Alito is a Byrd CAP Strategy"

On the issue that they attack, Alito seems very progressive based on his stewardship of the "Boundaries of Privacy in American Society" task force. Things must be looking mighty bad in the anti-Alito camp for this to be their strategy. It looks for all I can tell to be an effort to Bork him from within the republican party like Meirs. That's not going to happen, and it is telling of just how weak the argument against Alito is from those who oppose and are organized against his nomination..............................
