Two of our favorite liberal advocates, Thom Hartmann and Mike Papantonio discuss the recent comments by Justice Scalia, who said about the Voting Rights Act:
Now, I don’t think that’s attributable to the fact that it is so much clearer now that we need this. I think it is attributable, very likely attributable, to a phenomenon that is called perpetuation of racial entitlement. It’s been written about. Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political processes.
NAACP President Ben Jealous told ABC News, “The protection of the right to vote is an American entitlement. It is a democratic entitlement. And those who would seek to use incendiary rhetoric from the bench of the Supreme Court should think twice about their place in history.”
We completely agree with Mr. Jealous and Papantonio who describes Scalia this way, “He’s a political hack with a robe on!”
