sometimes i think liddy is trolling us all

Yesterday on his radio show, conservative host G. Gordon Liddy continued the right wing’s all-out assault on Judge Sonia Sotomayor. First, just like Tom Tancredo, Liddy slammed Sotomayor’s affiliation with the civil rights group La Raza — and referred to the Spanish language as “illegal alien“:</p>

LIDDY: I understand that they found out today that Miss Sotomayor is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, “the race.” And that should not surprise anyone because she’s already on record with a number of racist comments.


Finished with the race-based attack, Liddy moved on to denigrate Sotomayor’s gender:


LIDDY: Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then.


Finally, Liddy disputed the entire idea that there’s anything wrong with the paucity of women and total lack of Hispanics on the Court:


LIDDY: And everybody is cheering because Hispanics and females have been, quote, underrepresented, unquote. And as you pointed out, which I thought was quite insightful, the Supreme Court is not designed to be and should not be a representative body.




Liddy and his radical colleagues, mostly on the radio, are so far failing to get the conservative leadership on board with their racist and sexist attacks. Last night, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) called the attacks “terrible” and “wrong.” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) was asked if he agreed with Newt Gingrich’s characterization of Sotomayor as a “Latina woman racist.” “No, I don’t agree with that,” Hatch replied.

Good call. I've been long-convinced that Ann Coulter is actually a troll.
My theory on Coulter is as follows: She is as crazy as need be to get the media attention she gets to sell her books. She's up there with Michelle Malkin. Crazy bitches who found a niche and are just playing up to the one side they know they can.
There's a major diff, though: Coulter Rush and Liddy get paid.

Also, two of them are convicted felons, which is more than I can say for most Internet trolls.
Oh christ, are you serious? La Raza is an alien language? Liddy has always been a nutjob.
no, spanish is illegal alien language. La Raza (or NCLA National Council of La Raza, the hispanic rights organzation, our version of NAACP) is a racist organization because La Raza translates to "The Race" in spanish, which means obviously that anyone who calls themself La Raza is racist. Or something. I don't speak fluent Douchebag.
I am part Messican because I got a 5 on the Spanish AP, so I know what la raza means, goober. And to be perfectly honest Sotomayor is not the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court, so I'm not really sure why this is even an issue.
also which other judge was hispanic? i cant remember there being another hispanic on the bench.
Watch out, I think 5 on your Spanish AP is enough to get your citizenship revoked these days. Run for the Rio Grande.
i love speaking illegal alien personally. god, im gonna start saying that all the time now. I WONT BE ABLE TO HELP IT CUZ ITS SO FUNNY! like unintentionally funny you know? the thing tht sucks is i am the whitest mexican on earth so people will just assume im being racist if they overhear :(
Reading this was a good exercise in just how horrified I can be by comments from the far-right though.

I'll say it with you and then it will be okay!
yeah, growing up as half latina in CA has made me pretty immune to all the anti-hispanic racism. like, most people from other states think california is super enlightened, but its SO racist here all the time, cuz the illegal alien issue is always pressing. i can't help but laugh at it. i feel bad tho for hispanics who don't get a pass like i do, i look white enough to not think twice about. my skin is just like, always looks like it has a golden tan. red hair + freckles work miracles. my cousins tho are all super dark skinned and they have to deal with a LOT more bullshit than me. Like my one cousin who was kicked out of his high school for writing a story about how Zombies attack the school and a group of students fight them off. They said he was into gangs and was planning on killing kids at the school. what, tha, fuuuuckkkk. man i would have sued the fuck out of the district :(
i speak legal citizen. yuriy speaks legal alien tho :D he has a card that says RESIDENT ALIEN on it.
I, for one, welcome our new Latina overlords.

(overladies?)

I, para uno, acoge con satisfacción a nuestros nuevos overlords de Latina.

god I don't speak ILLEGAL ALIEN but even I can tell that the grammar is not so good there. LOLZ.
haha well, it's not mine, it's some internet translator's. My Spanish is non-existent. Also, it's "ILLEGAL ALIEN", not Spanish, weren't you paying attention to the Mr. LIddy? LOL
hahahah i love her so much. i hope she wins the nom. she is srsy so sassy and smart! man she would be a great supreme court justice and such an awesome role model. since sandra day is gone there is only ruth bader left!
yeah, he's supertroll
The guy is way smarter than that. He's Wally George except no one gets the joke.

Stewardess, I speak illegal alien.
When ones shitting through their mouth so badly that it offends John Cornyn then they really are reaching epic levels of asshattery.
i went to the carneceria and bought creme de casa in illegal alien today. i want tshirts that say I SPEAK FLUENT LEGAL ALIEN.
