Human Rights mean nothing in America

June 19, 2009

 

In an appalling 5-to-4 ruling on Thursday, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority tossed aside compelling due process claims, the demands of justice and a considered decision by a lower federal appeals court to deny the right of prisoners to obtain post-conviction DNA testing that might prove their innocence.

…..  We are also puzzled and disturbed by the Obama administration’s decision to side with Alaska in this case — continuing the Bush administration’s opposition to recognizing a right to access physical evidence for post-conviction DNA testing.      NYTimes.com

What is more, they mean nothing to the demented, evil, religious, right wing, ultra conservatives on the United States Supreme Court, the Bush Administration, Barack Obama and his administration.

When will our country finally put an end to it’s continuing war on human rights.  I have serious doubts that I will see that in my life time. 

I no longer believe that Barack Obama is a kind and caring human being.

Yesterday, a Democratic President of the United States of America, in the year 2009, and an African-American child of inter-racial parents no less, gave his lawyers the go ahead to compare our marriages to incest on the same day that 42 years ago the Supreme Court ruled in his parents’ favor in Loving v. Virginia.
A great nation deserves the truth: A word about Barack Obama and the lawyers in our midst

Yes, the President of the United States of America, a man I voted for, compared same sex marriage to incest and pederasty.  This kind of bigoted attitude is what I expect from people seeped in religion and the hatred that religion fosters.  It is not the attitude and rhetoric that I will tolerate from someone I helped vote into office.  In the next election there is an excellent chance that my vote will be cast elsewhere.  I do not expect to have to endure such a high level of bigotry, hatred and ignorance from a politician I supported.

I am not alone in my reaction to President Obama’s bigotry.  A Coalition of LGBT groups and ACLU issued a statement condemning the Obama administration for their defense of DOMA. http://www.aclu.org/lgbt/relationships/39848prs20090612.html
