Kagan's sympathies to "logic" employed by totalitarian socialists makes her a threat to American liberty

The World Is Kagan’s Battlefield
Why she shouldn’t join the Supremes
(Antiwar.com) -- by Justin Raimondo --

...According to Kagan, the government may limit speech not only if the consequences of free expression are deleterious to public safety and order, but also if the “motive” of the government is pure – that is, free of any consideration of the self-interest of public officials, or any a priori evaluation of some ideas as inherently and permanently invalid.

I am simplifying her argument considerably, of course: in her article for the University of Chicago Law Review she makes a complex, and even an elegant argument – an argument, I would add, that is deadly dangerous to the concept of individual liberty. Go check it out for yourself.

Suffice to say here that, in Kagan’s world, it’s okay to proscribe certain expressions if (1) the government can show an overriding public interest in doing so, and (2) if the motives of government officials can pass the test of self-interest – or, at least, give the formal appearance of neutrality.

She has further written in favor of academic speech codes, and, in this context, her thesis on the history of the socialist movement in New York, while no doubt an admirable, value-neutral, scholarly effort, implicates her as being at least sympathetic to the goals if not the methods of a movement that has included a totalist as well as a democratic element.

Given the predicament in which we find ourselves today, with the Constitution under assault from every side – from the neocons on the right, who want to outlaw “subversion,” and dispense with habeas corpus, and from some “progressives” who see government power as a panacea, especially now that they’re in control of the national government – Kagan is the last person we need on the Court.

Kagan backs the Obama administration’s policy of indefinite detention, a blatantly unconstitutional and dangerous position that continues the Bush era assault on what is left of our liberties – and she would even extend it, if we take seriously her colloquy with Sen. Lindsey Graham. Asked by the Senator if she would apply “battlefield law” instead of criminal law to someone suspected – suspected – of providing material support to a terrorist organization, such as al Qaeda, she answered that she would indeed.

Going further than even the Bush administration, Kagan insisted that the “battlefield” extends far beyond any war zone – including the Philippines, in the context of Senator Graham’s question, and, theoretically, even the US. So if, for instance, some little old lady is bamboozled into giving to a charity that supports, say, Hamas – designated a terrorist organization by the US State Department – she could be charged with giving “material support” to a terrorist entity, and held indefinitely, without trial, for the rest of her natural life...MORE...LINK

Fat, Ugly Kagan Jew Monster, Ultimate Reduction To Absurd
(Apollonian, 13 May 10)

Kagan is distinct, supreme reductio-ad-absurdum inasmuch as she's notable for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING whatsoever--having accomplished NOTHING. On the contrary, this amazing Jew is a veritable abomination and outrage in the face of the American people, Kagan, a Jew and lesbian, once again.

Kagan is thus given the nomination for ONE THING and one thing ONLY, and that's she's Jew Jew Jew Jew Jew Jew--a Jew's Jew with capital "J"--that's it, NOTHING else whatsoever.

Kevin MacDonald (TheOccidentalObserver.net/TooBlog) should be given credit for one observation, and that's Kagan is notable for mere, simple fact she's champion of Jewwy NET-WORKING. Thus Kagan is a Jew who knows a lot of other Jews, powerful Jews, Jews with connections. And now look--she's suddenly nominated for Sup. Ct. position because why?--she's SUPER Jew, that's why. Don't think Kagan is Jewwy enough?--look at her ugly hook-nose, jut-jaw, and fat head--how can any non-Jew fail to ABSOLUTELY HATE such an ugly monster grinning at u?

Imagine now the horrific, incredible, living, running farce we have playing in Wash. DC: a gross, crass, stinking USURPER, Obama/Soetoro, who may well be actually an illegal alien, given the Nobel Peace Prize for no reason, despite his escalation of Predator Drone mass-murders, as presently in Pakistan, nominates this lesbian Jew for Sup. Ct. in order to arbitrarily throw Christian citizens in jail and strip them of their rights, evermore thoroughly emasculating the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

CONCLUSION: Such is the putrid pass things have come to in bankrupt USA, Americans the willing mercenary murderers for Israeli terror-state. Thank goodness it must all come to an end soon--soon enough as US Dollar gets ready to collapsing with all finality. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian
