      Wake Up GOP: Sotomayor is This Generation's Jackie Robinson

      Nine years into the new millennium and conservatives and Republicans
      -- with straight faces – insist that it is they that should define the
      nation’s racial debate and that it is their views that are fair and
      objective and part of the U.S. mainstream. Nowhere is this fallacy
      more evident than in their incomprehensible opposition to Judge Sonia
      Sotomayor’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
      
      In their upside-down world, extreme conservatives, including the
      entire right wing talk show universe, have gone from defending racial
      supremacy – from opposing integration and the precepts of “equality
      and justice for all” to abrogating for themselves the right to give
      meaning to the very words and terms of this debate. Interestingly,
      Senate Republicans – who espouse virtually the same views as that of
      their influential talk show brethren -- minus the most incendiary
      language – have failed to denounce their hate and ultra-nationalist
      demagoguery.
