Posted on 01/23/2012 1:31:06 PM PST by Politics4US
"TRENTON, N.J. (AP) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie moved to diversify the states all-white Supreme Court on Monday by proposing two firsts: the nominations of an openly gay black man and a Korean-born law enforcer to fill two vacancies.
Christie announced the nominations at a Statehouse news conference attended by both nominees and their families. If confirmed, Bruce A. Harris would become New Jerseys first openly gay justice, and Phillip H. Kwon would become its first Asian representative and the first person born outside the United States to be sworn in."

What, no qualified muzzies available?
Ann Coulter must be celebrating this news.
This dude will be back down there at the rest stop in Virginia getting arrested sure as shootin'.
“Christie Picks Gay Black Man, Asian”
He better be a transsexual too or all hell will break loose.
This is just one of the reasons Christie isn’t running for President ~ EVER!
Well, that takes care of any Chances boffin-boy has in my book for any presidental aspirations.
Welcome to RINOland, Gov.
Gee that’s nice. Are they at least lawyers??
These actions reveal the true meaning of the terms “moderate Republican.” When are conservatives going to start educating people regarding the true referent for the term “moderate?” “Moderate” almost always refers to a person who supports liberal
'Cause he can.
I am sooo glad Christie is no longer our favorite Conservative anymore because I haven’t liked or trusted that fat POS from day 1 and have really wanted to say so. What the hell has he EVER done for Conservatism anyways? NOTHING!
Worse, like them he's playing politics with our country's future.
Christie endorsed Romney, right? Ann “GOProud” Coulter endorsed Romney, right? Just sayin’ ...
What? He couldn’t find an Islamic Jew?
Why not just pick the best person?
And he thinks NEWT is an embarrassment to the party. Christie is becoming New Jersey’s answer to Scott Brown.
Obviously this little tidbit completes the puzzle and shows the Coulter to Gay Guys to this Gay Guy to Christie links.
Too many Republicans have gotten themselves and the party burned bad over the last decade for any of us to tolerate this sort of blatant favoritism toward their gay buddies.
Senator Craig, Mark Foley, Ken Mehlman, ..... a cast of thousands including top level staffers in the House of Representatives, friends of Dennis Hastert, etc.
The American public tolerates homosexuals messing around in the Democrat party, but not the Republican party.
Good thing we got a chance to nip this cabal in the bud before we ended up with a Senator Eagleton problem at the last minute.
Sure...He had to do it because there was no OTHER ONE on the face of earth who qualified for the position but a faggot... Well, THANK YOU for letting us know!
Big fat dumbass. Yaaay a gay black man!! Bunch of f’n racists! “Pick me, pick me, I’m a gay black man”! Unreal!
It’s rare that we celebrate a Republican win on FR, when no sooner are we bitterly dissapointed. Christie, Scott Brown, Bob McDonnell, who’s next?
Diversity trumps qualifications and common sense. Again.
Fat boy = Mildley fiscal DEMOCRAT. Meet the new RINO, same as the old RINO.
Ann Coulter should be proud. That woman is our Benedict Arnold.
So morally superior of him, yeah right. But then again our failing elite never fails to remind us white men of our eternal guilt for being white men and enough people still believe in the white guilt syndrome.
Spanky the RINO in all his lard ass glory.
Before passing judgement on these appointments, I’d like to know about their political backgrounds and beliefs.
I frankly don’t care whether these people are horny white men or bulemic Asians, if they’re adherants to the Constitution and will judge fairly without legislating from the bench.
Instead, I’m reading immediate kneejerk responses to the media description of race, gender, sexual habits instead of judicial qualifications.
Another aging fag hag held hostage to her hormones, too bad, she did have a fine mind.
“I’m a fiscal conservative and a social libertarian.”
“No you’re not. You’re just a cheap, chickns%$# Democrat liar.”
stupid white/heterosexual guilt....how about just picking a good judge and not picking via affirmative action!?
“What, no qualified muzzies available?”
He already did.
Christie to Nominate Muslim as Superior Court Judge
Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that one of his seven nominees for Superior Court judgeships would be a lawyer who represented many detainees swept up by the government in the post-9/11 dragnet.
The lawyer, Sohail Mohammed, worked in the aftermath of the attacks to try to foster trust between American Muslims and law enforcement, particularly federal officials. He is a board member of the American Muslim Union. Mr. Christie, a United States attorney, was a regular guest at that groups annual Ramadan dinner and spoke highly of Mr. Mohammeds work.
Mr. Mohammed was on former Gov. Jon S. Corzines short list of potential judicial appointees, but he was not nominated. He would serve on the court in Passaic County. His appointment requires confirmation by the State Senate.
Chris Christie slams fearmongering over Sharia law
“Sharia law has nothing to do with this at all. It’s crazy. It’s crazy,” Christie said at a press conference Wednesday. “The guy’s an American citizen who has been an admitted lawyer to practice in the state of New Jersey, swearing an oath to uphold the laws of New Jersey, the constitution of the state of New Jersey, and the Constitution of the United States of America . . . .This Sharia law business is crap. It’s just crazy. And I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.”
Can we ask them if they will discriminate against white men? If you hesitate to answer that then you have answered your own question.
I don t know about you, but I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, "We must broaden the base of our party"--when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.
It was a feeling that there was not a sufficient difference now between the parties that kept a majority of the voters away from the polls. When have we ever advocated a closed-door policy? Who has ever been barred from participating?
Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?
A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.
Christie wouldn’t be in my top 500 for higher office
Sickening. To think Christie can actually think some sodomite-—who glorifies his demeaning, vile behavior-—can be “Virtuous”. He has no logic. He does not believe in God-Given Rights. That there is a “right” to “sodomy” is a very sick, illogical way to think, Christie.
Christie is trying to force the idea that “sodomy” is “good” and “virtuous” behavior. It turns Judeo/Christian Ethics on its head. Upside down.
Can’t go against the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God-—Christie. There is a Right and Wrong-—God’s Rules—not Barney Frank’s sickening vile, lifestyle which demeans the body and God’s creation. Even animals don’t sodomize each other and their young. Sick, Christie-—SICK to put these ideas into the heads of our young boys——trying to normalize such dysfunction. Shame on you.
A glimpse of what life would be like under a Romney administration. The RINOs are every bit as liberal as Democrats on social issues. They all go to the same cocktail parties and they all mock the great unwashed in flyover country. They feign conservatism to get our support and then veer left as soon as they take office.
Took 29 posts to get there but thanks for a sane reaction.
You got that right.
Excuse me but if they were qualified no one would be looking at their ethnicity or sexuality as PART of their qualifications. However these points are mentioned as qualifiers so they ARE an issue.
For what it’s worth Bruce A. Harris, the black gay Mayor, is a Republican.
What, Christie couldn’t find a qualified gay, black, Asian immigrant to nominate? By wasting two picks instead of combining the four features in a single nominee, he wasn’t able to nominate to the second seat a Native American, Mennonite midget born at sea. How long must New Jersey wait for a state supreme court that looks like America?
Once again, Chris Christie demonstrates for doubters EXACTLY WHAT HE IS.
Black man or Asian - no problem.
Openly gay guy - UNFORGIVABLE.
REMEMBER - tell those folks down in Florida exactly WHO this Clown is pimping for in the Primary - Mitt Romney.
And if Mitt is elected, THIS IS THE GUY WHO WILL BE THE AG!!!!!
in case anyone thinks that Christie simply appointed the best available legal minds to the Court who, coincidentally, were from racial minorities and/or homosexual, think again. Christie hailed the appointments as “historic” in terms of “diversity”. He engaged in an affirmative action exercise of the type that is an affront to liberty and conservatism.
I am proud to be standing here today to announce two historic nominations to the New Jersey State Supreme Court, Christie said, expressing extreme confidence in their records and respect for their intellect. (from the article posted above)
Besides, just looking at Christies action logically and how its been promoted, how likely do you think it is that these two were the best qualified?
IMO the same as a snowballs chance in hell. His decision was based exclusively on political considerations.
that is not a sane reaction.
look at what happened in california where a homosexual judge imposed his personal fetish on a court ruling. Judges do not leave their personal opinions at the door. Will this judge’s office be a “union” shop which favors homosexuals? Such behavior is demonstrable.
Chistie has torched his bridges with his stand for Romney and some of his other issues. He is an elitist who is bifucating conservatism in to balkan categories.
Conservative is conservative. Not fiscal, social, or defense etc. conservative.
If Christie picked these men BECAUSE of sexual orientation and ethnicity, then he’s a bigoted heterophobe and there’s no other way to describe it.
What, was RuPaul unavailable????
