Busted: Gov. Walker’s ‘queer’-hating Supreme Court justice caught slut-shaming victims of rape

Published

on

It was revealed this week that a recently-appointed Wisconsin Supreme Court justice who was found to have written disparaging things about liberals and the LGBT community also said that women were responsible for campus date rape.

The Journal Sentinel uncovered student newspaper columns written 24 years ago by Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley where she complained that “queers are valued more than the innocent victims of more prevalent ailments.”

Bradley, who said that she was upset about the election of President Bill Clinton in 1992, argued that people would be “better off getting AIDS than cancer under Clinton because it would get more funding.”

“But the homosexuals and drug addicts who do essentially kill themselves and others through their own behavior deservedly receive none of my sympathy,” she wrote. “We’ve just had an election (in 1992) which proves the majority of voters are either totally stupid or entirely evil.”

For his part, Gov. Scott Walker (R) insisted that he had not known of Bradley’s columns in the student newspaper at Marquette University when he nominated her to the state Supreme Court.

In a 1992 column that was unearthed this week, Bradley defended scholar Camille Paglia, who had been banned from several campuses after she wrote that “blaming the victim” of campus rape was “common sense.”

According to Bradley, Paglia “legitimately suggested that women play a role in date rape.” In a column titled “Awaiting Feminism’s Demise,” Bradley said that feminists were “largely composed of angry, militant, man-hating lesbians who abhor the traditional family.”

A spokesperson for Bradley said that she would have to re-read the 1992 column before commenting on it.

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" read excerpts from the book.

"There was no doubt that Deutsche Bank had extensive business dealings with Russia, and those dealings included acting as a conduit for dirty money to get out of Russia and into the western financial system," Enrich wrote.

Congress still has one big tool left to rein in Trump’s corruption: Oversight Committee Democrat

Published

on

Senate Republicans may have managed to quash the impeachment trial without calling forth any new witnesses or seriously considering the evidence against President Donald Trump. And the president may feel vindicated and largely invulnerable as a result.

But, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday, that doesn't mean Democrats don't have one last big play to rein in the president's abuses of power. They can use the first and strongest authority delegated to them: the power of the purse.

"What can Democrats really do when it comes to oversight of the president?" asked Cooper. "I mean, now that impeachment is over, does seem like there are fewer and fewer guardrails, if any."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
