Alito Confirmation Hearing: Victory for Christo-Fascists Likely
It looks like Samuel Alito will be confirmed by the Senate Judiciary Committee and will join his right-wing comrades Scalia and Thomas on the U.S. Supreme Court. The "confirmation" hearing was a joke. The Democrats, with only a few exceptions, failed to aggressively challenge Alito's lies and coverups of his record and views, and the Republicans wasted time with softball questions. Alito's record and views on Roe V. Wade, abortion, privacy, civil rights and executive privilege are very disturbing. He refused to say that Roe v. Wade was settled law, and he has made it known in the past that he opposes it and would like to take away a women's right to choose abortion. He was a "proud" member of the racists, sexist, anti-gay Concerned Alumni of Princeton and lied about his support of it (he said on a job application that he was a "proud" member of CAP to get a job with the racist, sexist and anti-gay Reagan administration.)
If/when confirmed, Alito will be a victory for the Christo-Fascists, who have put their stamp of approval on this nominee. Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and the rest of the Christo-Fascist leadership have proclaimed that this would be a 30+ year victory for them.
There is no doubt that Roe v. Wade will be overturned if it comes up in the new Supreme Court, and the rights of workers, women, racial minorities and gays is in danger.
If you haven't done so already, PLEASE contact your representatives NOW to urge them to vote against confirmation of Alito.
