Amul Thapar broke new ground when he became the first federal judge of South Asian descent in 2007, and over the next decade he built a record as a well-respected jurist. When President Trump nominated Judge Thapar to a seat on a federal appeals court, the American Bar Association unanimously graded him “well qualified.” Yet when the son of Indian immigrants came up for a vote on the Senate floor, not a single Democrat backed him.


The process played out the same way for Neomi Rao, a daughter of Indian immigrants whom the ABA rated “well qualified” but who was confirmed only on a party-line vote, and for Michael Park, a Korean American, and Kenneth Lee, a Korean immigrant. None of them earned a single Democratic vote.

The racist Democrats can't help but show their true colors. They only pay lip service to "diversity." Intellectual diversity is their enemy.

They withheld their support, and it didn't matter, except to expose them as hypocrites.

Well, fortunately Harry Reid was kind enough to eliminate the judicial filibuster.

Quite literally my favorite political misstep of the last 100 years.

When he did it, I was shouting from every rooftop how this was going to come back and bite the Left on their collective arse, and hard. It's one thing I give credit to that "Gang of 14" for in 2005...they all knew what the nuclear option represented, and imagine if Obama had had this gift that keeps on giving? 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.

This is the argument the feminist had 30 years ago.

Do we vote for all women or only the ones who are aligned with our position?

Democrats have over the years been very consistent in opposing the rights and progress of women, blacks, other minorities, you name it.

That's the new tactic of the radical right....if you can't fix your own party's lack of diversity and progress, join the racist calling bandwagon. Looks like most of the country don't agree given that the GOP is shrinking especially among young people and women at 29%. It's clear why!

I don't think liberals like Asians much. Affirmative action specifically targets them and all of the minority Asian judges Trump appoints get smeared by them.
