Just a Case of (Reverse) Racism

Judge Leslie Southwick has been confirmed. Notably, Dianne Feinstein, a supporter, essentially conceded that the Democrats who oppose Southwick are racists:

Southwick's supporters, who include Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said the controversy wasn't so much about Southwick as it was about the fact that he is a white man nominated to sit on a court that handles cases in Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

Can you imagine the outcry -- rightly -- if a qualified black nominee were held up only because of his skin color? Shouldn't the same standard be applied to whites, as well?

Ed Lasky, news editor of American Thinker, just published an essay (The South Rises) on the bigotry the elite, liberal North has towards the South.

That is what's behind the opposition towards Southwick. Plus the fact that Southwick isn't one of them.

In the "thinking" of the Left, there is no bigotry in being a bigot when "your cause is just." This is in the same category as those cases where the facts are wrong but the story is true.

When the truth no longer matters, anything at all can be justified. The Left decided some time ago that truth was dispensable.
