    Buchanan: With Kagan, too many Jews on Supreme Court bench

    "If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the US population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats," Buchanan wrote in a column for WorldNetDaily on Friday. "Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?"

    In his column, Buchanan argued the Democrats have been hypocritical in claiming to be the party of ethnic and racial diversity because their Supreme Court picks don't reflect the US's ethnic and religious breakdown.
    I love how Paleocons are always bitching and whinning about identity politics but yet Buchanan is bitching about the fact she's a jew. Then again it is Pat Buchanan so I really shouldnt be that surprised. Its not like there are other things to complain about; anti-second amendment, not too keen on the first to name two. Stay classy asshole

    This is a stupid argument on SO many levels.

    Re: Buchanan: With Kagan, too many Jews on Supreme Court bench

    As usual, Raw Story is twisting the facts to make it seem much worse than it is. If you read his statement in context, he's not saying that there are "too many jews" on the SC, but simply that it's disproportionately populated by jews, leading other groups to be underrepresented.

    We've heard the exact same things said by people who said the court was disproportionately white, disproportionately male, or disproportionately catholic. No one seemed to get riled up over those statements, so I'm not sure why this is a big deal.

    That's very funny, considering that females comprise more than half the US population... and what's our representation in government looking like?

    Whereas white Christian males comprise less than 40% of the US population, and they're running everything.
    Oh, boo hoo. Poor white Christian males.
    They seem to be ever-so-slowly losing their advantage.
    At this rate, they may lose their edge entirely by, oh... the year 2510.

    True, President McCain, House Speaker Hastert, and Attorney General Rove do have a deathgrip on the country's operations.

    If you are trying to argue that white christian men don't control this country, well that is just hilarious, and I hope you are joking.

    I'm pointing out the foolishness in claiming that "white christian men are running everything" while neither the president nor the speaker of the house nor the attorney general fits into that category.

    Are there a disproportionate number of white christian men in positions of authority? Sure. Does that mean they're "running everything"? No.

    They are not running everything, but they control a major part of our country.

    This is bizarre doublespeak.

    "too many Jews" IS the same as "disproportionately populated by Jews".
    "too many Jews" is a relative statement of course. Relative to the total number.. Proportionally.
    ergo, the Same.

    It's apologist Crap for a man who is a raging anti-semite and who's quite consistent hobby is defending ex-Nazi prison guards.

    No, it's absolutely not. "Too many" is a normative statement, while "disproportionately populated" is a factual statement.

    Again, why doesn't anyone bat an eye when people point out that there are disproportionate numbers of whites, men, and Catholics on the court? Could it be because people such as yourself don't want to score political points against the speakers of those statements?

    I don't particularly like Pat Buchanan and don't give a **** about the other things he's said. I'm pointing out the hypocrisy on display, regardless of who's being smeared.
