Not ‘enlightened’ enough
So Sen. Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat, wants to filibuster Neil Gorsuch out of being nominated to the Supreme Court. It’s a good thing Mr. Gorsuch isn’t Jesus, or Mr. Schumer would probably have the cross and nails out by now. He wants someone more mainstream and abortion-friendly — like Ruth Bader Ginsburg (or Karl Marx). Mr. Gorsuch’s main problem when it gets right down to it is that he simply isn’t Mao enough, lacks the proper insight into the leftist agenda and doesn’t goose-step to the apparatchik ideology. In other words, he simply isn’t one of the “enlightened ones,” and is thus seen as a renegade and loose cannon. In short Mr. Gorsuch just doesn’t get it. He is therefore deemed bad for America.
Ten years in a leftist indoctrination camp or a week in a ship’s cargo hold with an insurance salesman reading “The Communist Manifesto” to Mr. Gorsuch should be sufficient in fixing this problem, however. I’d probably opt for the former myself.
