Popular conservative talk show host Glenn Beck made his predictions Saturday for the kind of judge President Obama will nominate to replace Supreme Court Justice Stevens, who announced Friday that he will retire.
Whoever the president chooses, Beck said on his radio show, Americans can be sure it will be someone hand-picked to stymie opposition through political correctness.
"It will allow the Democrats to say they just hate women, they just hate Hispanics, they just hate a black, they just hate whatever. That's what it will be," Beck said. "I mean if he's smart, he will find a gay, handicapped black woman who's an immigrant. She could be the devil. She could say 'I hate America. I want to destroy America,' and that way they'll only be able to say 'Why do you hate gay immigrant black handicapped women?'"
Stevens' announcement of retirement means Obama must choose a second Supreme Court justice within his first two years in office. His last selection, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, ignited a prolonged battle with Republicans. This time, Obama must get a nominee confirmed in the middle of an election season and with possibly even more opposition.
Beck was quick to claim Obama would appoint another "radical" like Justice Sotomayor.
Of course, when you think about the fact that Barry himself said he was looking for a judge with "empathy" before picked Sonia Sotomayor for the last SCOTUS vacancy, Beck makes a fair (and funny) point. But for the Left any chance of constructively debating Beck's creed on political correctness run amuck will get drowned out with cries of "RACIST!"...hey look! They've already started.
