Musings of Justice Scalia

By Francine Haselkorn:


With so much important news this year, it’s easy to have missed the report* of Justice Scalia, at a college, reiterating his stance that ‘voting is an ‘entitlement.’ Back in February, at a hearing of the Supreme Court, Justice Scalia presented an argument against Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. The section requires states or localities, that have historically discriminated against minority voters, to get government approval in changing electoral procedures. The case that he’s drumming up support for the court to hear, comes from a county in Alabama with a population 85 percent white.

I wish I could have been in the Supreme Court February 28th to hear the gasping sounds and see the astounded faces when Justice Scalia called voting an ’entitlement’. He fully knows that voting is not only one’s civic duty, but also a constitutionally given right, and despite his knowing this and the history of the voting rights act and voting in our country – he constructed a fictitious world using lies as his bricksand used the mortar from his exalted and honored position he holds as a justice.

Does Scalia believe that people will believe anything he says? Why does he ignore the fact that Section 5 of the Voter Rights Act has bent over backwards in giving another voting bloc, our County’s Military every opportunity to vote (and rightfully so). Does he feel that he has a ‘constituency’ that looks to his leading the brigade in making it more difficult for minorities to vote? Do his lies become truths because he has uttered them? Does the man still sees himself as religious and upright?

What fear does he hold about the nature of our present society? His own Italian roots experienced a big douse of discrimination? Wikipedia on late 19th-20th century Italian immigration says. “In United States, and other English-speaking countries to which they immigrated, such as Canada and Australia, the later Italian immigrants were often viewed as perpetual foreigners in a lower class, restricted to blue collar jobs. Their Catholicism, frequent lack of formal education and competition with earlier immigrants for lower paying jobs accounted for much of this prejudice. Ethnocentric chauvinism exhibited by the earlier Northern European settlers toward the Italian immigrants were also major factors, this being especially true in the South.”**

How would he react if some ethnic epithets were hurled at him.? I think he would start to scream It's just not good enough to be a lawyer from a good law school to be a Supreme. But we are stuck with him, his vapidity, and his lies.

* WSJ,4/16 'Scalia Calls Voting Act A ‘Racial Preferment’.

** The Fifteenth Amendment (Amendment XV) to the United States Constitution prohibits each government in the United States from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's "race, color, or previous condition of servitude" (for example, slavery). It was ratified on February 3, 1870.
