The Obama administration backs racial discrimination

This is absurd enough:

The Supreme Court has just issued an order (read it here) blocking the racially discriminatory separatist election in Hawaii.  The order enjoins (stops) the counting of ballots and certification of results pending further order of the Supreme Court.  I covered the election here and here at PJ Media.

Only one race is permitted to register to vote with Hawaiian government officials for the separatist election.Hawaii has given a private organization millions of dollars to run the election. They believe these actions are constitutional. Judicial Watch has sued Hawaii, and the Public Interest Legal Foundation has filed an emergency brief with the Supreme Court on behalf of the American Civil Rights Union asking the court to stop the election process.

That’s right, one race is permitted to register to vote for or against the separatist election.  Because, you know, those who’ve lived there for generations but aren’t native, tough cookies.  And while one might suppose that some of the natives are smart enough to realize when they have it much better connected to the US than they would unconnected, you might also suppose that there are enough infected with “native rights” to have not thought to deeply about a vote for a separation and the consequences thereof.

But if that is absurd, this is downright crazy:

Naturally, the Obama administration took their side and filed a brief supporting the racially discriminatory election.  They argued that even though Congress has never authorized a new government on Hawaii comprised of the native race, the state should be allowed to establish one.

That’s right, our government argued for the discriminatory vote.  Suddenly, they’re a huge “states rights” fan.  Well unless that state doesn’t want to take in Syrian refugees.  And then, not so much.

Wasn’t this the guy who was supposed to stop the oceans from rising and healing the wounds of racism with his magic touch.  Is this how one goes about that?

Amazing.

  • More deliberate damage brought to you by the Constitutional Scholar.

    Bear in mind, having been born in Hawaii, he probably thinks he’s a ‘native’.
    I say that because I expect he understands what that means about as well as he understands the Constitution.

  • We live in interesting times. The overt practice of racism is vaunted by the Collective in the name of “fairness” in various applications, and universities rather openly defy the Supreme Court to continue discrimination in hiring and admissions.

    • And it isn’t just racism, there’s rather a significant amount of overt sexism as well.
