I'm guessing I did more research on her than BMOL, so I doubt he had any evidence of his claim and was just making it up on the fly.

It was all over Twitter if you pulled her name up that she had a Mexican and Jewish background. Itís pretty easy these days when something is trending to get info quickly

Did he hold up a blinking sign that said 'NOT RACIST' too?

Fair enough. I didn't see that, but whatever. After the video got posted it's pretty clear it was intentional.

Re: Brett Kavanaugh - Interest & Discussion

Quote:
The Roberts Court is poised to shape American society in Trumpís image for decades to come. All three branches of the federal government are now committed to the Trump agenda: the restoration of Americaís traditional racial, religious, and gender hierarchies; the enrichment of party patrons; the unencumbered pursuit of corporate profit; the impoverishment and disenfranchisement of the rival partyís constituencies; and the protection of the president and his allies from prosecution by any means available. Not since the end of Reconstruction has the U.S. government been so firmly committed to a single, coherent program uniting a politics of ethnonationalism with unfettered corporate power. As with Redemption, as the end of Reconstruction is known, the consequences could last for generations.

The lesson of the post-Reconstruction Supreme Court is that a determined Court majority can prove stubbornly resistant to short-term swings of political fortune. Even if Democrats win the next election cycle, and the one after that, an enduring conservative majority on the Supreme Court will have the power to shatter any hard-won liberal legislative victory on the anvil of judicial review.*

This. I am EXTREMELY skeptical of this kind of stuff generally, but what happened in the long video is totally clear. Deplorable friend texted her and said "You're in the shot. It'll be hilarious if... Libs will be so triggered." She does it while mugging for the camera with very stiff body language. Then looks at her hand after. It's not close.

Also who gives a **** if she has Mexican heritage? Whiteness doesn't work that way.

Re: Brett Kavanaugh - Interest & Discussion

This white power salute is BS. She looked at her phone, read something funny from someone, and smirked about it. So what??

Oh, and what kind of Seig Heil Sally is Mexican and Jewish, who had grandparents survive the Holocaust?

Re: Brett Kavanaugh - Interest & Discussion

Sigh. That literally has zero relevance at all. It's like asking "What kind of person who is married to an illegal immigrant runs an entire country with no discernible agenda aside from tormenting illegal immigrants?" Bad people create exceptions and justifications for their apparent hypocrisy. Pretty basic.

She could be playing that nerdy circle game from malcom in the middle. It's been really popular the last year or so and I see stupid memes about in on FB all the time. It's the same exact hand signal afaik.

really isn't close at all

i'm reading that she worked on the Muslim ban, cant find any confirmation but i mean whatever she's a ted cruz campaign worker who worked on the Trump transition team. triggering the libs with some "fake" white power sign (lol great joke) is right in her wheelhouse)

Little-known fact that Richard Spencer, Cernovich, and Milos are big fans of the Malcolm circles game.

I don't know, but what kind of Sieg Heil Stephen is Jewish, who had grandparents who fled the anti-Jewish pogroms in Russia?

Re: Brett Kavanaugh - Interest & Discussion

I want to believe as much as anyone else, but which is more likely:

A) She is all about 4chan alt-right culture and was informed by text that moment was perfect for trolling the libs/signaling her white supremacist beliefs.

B) A friend texted her that her left side is totally on tv and looking fine girl and she made a gesture to acknowledge the text.

I don't WANT to believe, but I do. A is more likely... There are like three or four paths to A.

1. Signaling her white supremacist beliefs. (highly unlikely - I don't doubt that she could be a white supremacist, since she's been involved in immigration policy for this administration, but I doubt she'd blatantly signal it)

2. Strategically trolling the libs for political gain. (moderately unlikely)

3. Trolling the libs for ****s and giggles. (most likely)

4. Tricked by someone via text into doing this signal. (somewhat unlikely)

On the other hand, to get to B you have to hit a parlay that she knows she's on TV during a Senate confirmation hearing and is still screwing around with her phone for amusement, received a text like that, decided to be funny and make some gesture to signal it (okay so far not that hard to believe) and then out of all the gestures, picked that one. Not a little thumbs up, not a wink, not a smile, not a wave, not a stretch, not a nod, nor a point, nor a peace sign... Nope, the okay sign.

Then to complete your parlay, instead of clarifying what was going on, her husband decided to take to Twitter to insist that she just randomly placed her hands that way.

There is virtually a 0% chance she randomly placed her hands that way. So why lie about something innocent?

I could totally buy that she received information and she was supposed to give to Kavanaugh and was signalling that she got it, or that she was signalling a senator that some line of questioning (or whatever) was okay based on whatever text/email she got, but why not just acknowledge that after the accusations started?

Sorry, these people get no benefit of the doubt anymore. You work for Ted Cruz, I'm just gonna assume you're deplorable.

Who would guess Kavanaugh is 53 and Gorsuch 51? He looks 45 and Gorsuch looks 70

Most of these questions are what will you do type questions, not what have you done did this happen etc so basically youíre asking about future what ifs so I donít think telling the truth is entirely possible

This is probably going to be closed off tomorrow. I would be surprised if they continued trying to operate with this crap going on every 2 minutes
