Asians have always been a target of Democrats. It began with their internment during WW2 and is alive and well today, discriminating against them in educational opportunities.

Any withholding of support is due to ideology or otherwise serious objections to that judge's past rulings -- NOT race, ethnicity (or were it applicable in this case, orientation or gender). Conservatives do the same to "liberals" too. So you're the one who're being hypocrites for objecting.

Nah, liberals don't mind refusing to select minority members if there is something highly objectionable about the person who is nominated (remember Clarence Thomas?). Claiming they'll never vote against a minority member court nominee under any circumstances is just the conservative's imagination.

Eventually, the other guy wins and what was funny as hell when your guy was doing it will lose exactly all of its funny when the guy you hate is doing it.

And wow, I always said the other guy might win, but in a historical moment of infinite irony, the absolute worst guy possible took over with that new rule in his pocket. It's like a top 5 pivotal moment in all of US history. All because Harry wanted his way, right this minute gosh darnit. If I ever need a hit of schadenfreude to get me through the day, I just think about Harry Reid and his choice to end the judicial filibuster. Always makes me smile.
They thought it wouldn’t matter because of demographics and the unbreachable Blue Wall.

There is no such thing as a "majority" judge, so why refer to "minority" judges?

It's just the Asians that you guys seem to hate. Has nothing to do with "ain't white."

Basically this thread points out liberals aren't actually racist because they don't care about your racial background they only care about whether your policies align with theirs. Then it proceeds to call those liberals racist for not being motivated by race.

True. Back in the days when the conservatives called themselves Democrats they were very consistent in opposing all those things you mentioned. Civil Rights and the woman's movement caused all those conservatives to flee the Democratic Party. Now we call them conservative Republicans.
