The United States Senate recently—finally—voted to confirm Brian Buescher as a federal district judge for Nebraska via a 51-40 party-line vote. Buescher had faced scrutiny from Judiciary Committee Democrats due to his membership in an organization they found abhorrent. What is this dark, depraved and despicable group? The North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)? The Church of Satan? Nope. The Knights of Columbus, a nominally Catholic fraternal organization dedicated to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
The sick bastard. It’s even worse than I thought.
How could he have possibly been confirmed?
Buescher was grilled by Democratic Senators Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Kamala Harris (California) late last year about his involvement with the twisted group. At the time, Hirono, referencing the society’s adherence to Catholic teaching on same-sex marriage, stated: “The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions.” She then asked Buescher, “If confirmed, do you intend to end your membership with this organization to avoid any appearance of bias?” Societal mores (and consequently cohesions) have broken down so quickly in recent years that the age-old, virtually universally held idea that marriage should be between one man and one woman is now seen by many as an “extreme” position, held only by reactionary bigots, Trump supporters, and Nazis…effectively all one and the same.
But, I would ask, what have Hirono and Harris, among many other Democrats, done to “avoid any appearance of bias?” (Bias: “prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair”).
“The Squad” issues anti-Semitic statements as frequently as day turns into night. Democrats at all levels routinely hurl epithets at the president of the Untied States, calling him “racist,” “unstable,” “dangerous,” “cruel” and “misogynistic.” They say he is a “fascist,” and compare him to Hitler. They demonize Trump—and all his supporters—as xenophobic, moronic, bumpkins. “Deplorables” if you will. Or even if you won’t. They claim Republicans as a whole are “mean-spirited” and desirous of tossing your wheel-chair-bound grandmother off a high cliff just for sh*ts and giggles.
It is essentially impossible for a modern Democrat to be pro-capitalist, and/or pro-life and/or pro-God, as that goes against Party Orthodoxy. (These, too, are now considered “extreme” positions, beyond the pale of the tolerant and open-minded). That kind of heterodoxy is now grounds for banishment from the party that many claim Thomas Jefferson founded, an assertion with which I beg to differ. Jefferson once wrote, in a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
No wonder the Democratic Party has now banished Thomas Jefferson.
Bias? Thy name is Democrat. Leftists stand for nothing if not tyranny over the minds of man. (And women, too)! Climate change? “The science is settled.” Period. Deniers will not be tolerated. But may soon be prosecuted. If a man says he is a woman, you have no alternative but to believe her. And you better use her preferred pronouns or you could be fined. Own your own bakery and don’t wish to bake a cake for a gay wedding or to commemorate an abortion? Sorry, you have no choice. Want to say a prayer before taking a final in your calculus classroom? Das ist verboten.
Progress, you see. Courtesy of the open-minded, tolerant, bias-free party.
