Senator Cornyn’s comments on judges, and leftist hypocrisy

Senator John Cornyn of Texas, on the floor of the senate, said yesterday:

“I don’t know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that’s been on the news and I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in – engage in violence. Certainly without any justification, but a concern that I have.”

Now first let us say this is a really, really stupid comment. The idea that that thug rapist in Atlanta was upset by the Democrats’ filibuster of judicial nominees or judicial activism is ludicrous.

But the commentary coming from the radical hysterical left about Cornyn’s comments is just as laughable. They’re trying to spin it as if the senator is apologizing for violence against judges. There’s nothing, not one letter, of the senator’s comment that can reasonably be interpreted that way.

The Daily (nut)Kos titled a blog post “Cornyn: Violence against judges understandable.”

Congressman John Conyers called Cornyn’s comment an “apparent effort to rationalize violence against judges.” Conyers, who appeared at a rally with Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panthers in 2000 where Shabazz called for racial killings of whites, should look at the log in his own eye before criticizing the speck in Cornyn’s eye.

And where was all this liberal outrage against criticizing judges when liberals were referring to Justice Clarence Thomas as a “lawn jockey” etc.?

The “Bush-is-a-Nazi” left should not be lecturing anyone about inflammatory rhetoric.
