A 2020 Democrat hopeful attacked a Trump judicial nominee in this awful way
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has gone all-in to appeal to the most radical ends of the Democratic Party’s base.
She thinks they’ll swoop her into the party’s nomination to take on Trump in 2020.
And the way she attacked this Trump judicial nominee is downright despicable.
Brian Buescher was nominated by President Trump to serve on the U.S. District Court in the District of Nebraska.
Buescher is a member of the Catholic fraternal and charitable organization the Knights of Columbus.
Kamala Harris called the Knights of Columbus an “all-male society” and attacked it for being anti-abortion.
Then Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) got in on the act, insisting Buescher resign his membership in the Knights of Columbus.
The Knights of Columbus, the world’s largest Catholic fraternal organization, accused Democratic Senators Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono of invoking America’s anti-Catholic history in their questioning of a judicial nominee about his membership to the club.
The senators directed a series of questions to Brian Buescher, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the U.S. District Court in the District of Nebraska, about how his membership with the service organization might affect his decisions as a federal judge.
“If confirmed, do you intend to end your membership with this organization to avoid any appearance of bias?” asked Hirono. The Hawaiian senator was referring to the organization’s prior support of California’s Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage. She also asked him if he would recuse himself “from all cases in which the Knights of Columbus has taken a position.”
Buescher told Hirono that the Knights of Columbus “is a Roman Catholic service organization with approximately 2 million members worldwide” and did not influence their political positions at all. Furthermore, he said, “the Knights of Columbus does not have the authority to take personal political positions on behalf of all of its members.”
Harris asked similar questions, pointing out that the leader of the Knights called abortion “a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.” Buescher has taken an anti-abortion stance in the past but said that he was 18 when he joined the organization and was unaware of its views on abortion at the time.
This is nothing more than discrimination on the basis of religion by Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono.
If there was a Muslim nominee, you can guarantee they’d be praising it as “stunning” and “brave.”
But the Knights of Columbus represent two of the things they hate the most: Christianity and men.
Do you think membership in the Knights of Columbus should automatically disqualify any Trump nominee?
