Schumer Attacks Judicial Nominee For Being Wh | The Daily Caller


The Democrat from New York said on the Senate floor that he could not vote to approve Marvin Quattlebaum for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina because he is a white man replacing two black Obama nominees.

Isn't it discrimination to deny someone a job based on race or sex?

It's amazing how explicitly racial and anti-white the rhetoric of the Democratic leadership has become the past couple years. They just keep doubling down on the strategy that lost them the 2016 election.

It's the white holocaust.
They're just being sneaky about it.
The plan is to breed out the white race. Tons of info out there.
Some compelling, and some plain old kooky conspiracy crap.
Either way, it's real. Goodbye whitey.

Schumer Will Vote ‘No’ On Judicial Nominee Because He Is White

C-Span video is at the link.

What did ML King say? …something about content of character, not color of skin? Not so much with Schumer…

I have said it before... race is just a tool in the political toolbox to increase their leverage. It could be racism that favors blacks, or racism that favors whites. It doesn't matter. What matters is how much leverage can be gained in their favor. They will throw whomever under bus for more leverage to help win their issues.

Trump is trying to make the courts an all white male dominated court system. I have no problem with Schumer's reasoning

Wait...it only takes one white judge to do the job of two black ones?

I can rather see where Senator Schumer is coming from (from the OP's link):


“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”

“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued. “It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”


Now, on the one hand, I agree that the 'best' candidates should be put forward for judicial nominations, regardless of skin color, religion, etc.

On the other hand, if you have a President that leans heavily towards one demographic (white male), I can see where a Senator, like Schumer, should object.

Now, if President Obama had made 92 percent of his judicial nominees black Americans (male or female), we would have heard howls of protest, justly.

However, as it turns out, President Obama was considered very 'diverse' in his nominees:

Of course, I realize that to some, 'diversity' in judicial appointments is considered a communist plot or such.

President Obama had twice tried to fill this seat (apparently, a black woman and black man): each time, one of the South Carolina's Senators turned in a 'blue slip', killing the nomination.

From what I have read about Mr. Quattlebaum, he is well qualified. I imagine that Mr. Schumer is voting 'no' more as a symbolic protest against Mr. Trump's demand that jurist be white males, rather than on his qualifications. It will make no difference (I bet the vote is overwhelming for this lawyer). I will note that Mr. Quattlebaum volunteered to serve in the campaigns of Senators Graham, Scott and Gowdy, which will not hurt his chances of being approved.
