John Roberts a Good Guy?
| Think again
Here’s a list of some of the things that make Roberts the wrong pick for the Supreme Court:
Wrong on environmental protection
: Roberts appears to want to limit the scope of the Endangered Species Act, and in papers he wrote while in law school he supported far-right legal theories about “takings” which would make it almost impossible for the government to enforce most environmental legislation.
Wrong on civil rights
: Roberts worked to keep Congress from defending parts of the Voting Rights Act.
Wrong on human rights
: As a appeals court judge, Roberts ruled that the Geneva Convention doesn’t apply to some prisoners of war.
Wrong on our right to religious freedom
: Roberts argued that schools should be able to impose religious speech on attendees.
Wrong on women’s rights
: Roberts wrote that “Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be overruled.” He also weighed in on behalf of Operation Rescue, a violent anti-abortion group, in a federal case.
Then again, Ann Coulter thinks he's too soft |
