The usual bobbleheaded suspects on the left were chattering that Justice Antonin Scalia said “racist” things during a case.
They were, as usual, wrong. But then, it was Harry Reid. It goes without saying.
By pushing one of the parties to extend and deepen its arguments Scalia wasn’t revealing himself to be a “racist”; he was revealing that he understands his job. This, alas, is more than can be said for those who have called him names.
Ifwe are to have a functioning justice system, we cannot hold lawyers personally responsible for the unpleasant parts of their designated roles. When a defense attorney successfully demonstrates that the prosecution’s case is too weak for a conviction, he is not betraying a preference for murder or rape or grievous bodily harm, he is ensuring that his client gets a fair shake.
Read the whole thing.
Because when dealing with the chanting points of the silly, low-info left that is very much in the ascendant, forewarned is forearmed.
(LEFTIES: “Forewarned is forearmed” is a figure of speech, not a threat. Relax).
