The name-calling is going a little far now…Lately, the Republican party has been thowing everything it can at anyone it dislikes, but to suggest the Supreme Court is even remotely like the KKK is unfreakingbelievable. And there is no way you can argue that he didn’t mean to make that comparison…From Andrew Sullivan:
NOW, THEY ARE THE KLAN: James Dobson, the religious figure who all but dictates Republican social policy, just referred to Supreme Court justices as the modern equivalent of the KKK. Yes, the GOP is getting even more extreme. Money quote from Dobson:
I heard a minister the other day talking about the great injustice and evil of the men in white robes, the Ku Klux Klan, that roamed the country in the South and they did great wrong to civil rights to and to morality and now we have black-robed men.
The quote is around the 22 minute mark. Dobson then referred to the coming Supreme Court nomination battle as “World War Three.”
