Borking Kagan

This Left-Wing Radical Lesbian Doesn’t Deserve To Be On ANY Court

A radical feminist and socialist.

A rabid pro-homosexual rights advocate, raising suspicions that she herself is a lesbian.  Believes that the military should open its ranks and barracks to homosexuals, without restriction

Anti-Second amendment, “I’m not sympathetic,” to the Second Amendment, said Kagan.  In 1987 as a U.S. Supreme Court law clerk, Elena Kagan said she was “not sympathetic” toward a man who contended that his constitutional rights were violated when he was convicted for carrying an unlicensed pistol, according to Bloomberg. 

Kagan believes the state has the right to impose restrictive gun laws and she disagrees with the language of the Second Amendment.

Kagan told lawmakers last year when she was the nominee for solicitor general that she accepted the 5-4 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller as a precedent of the court. “There is no question, after Heller, that the Second Amendment guarantees individuals the right to keep and bear arms,” she said.

Kagan, however, added that the Constitution “provides strong although not unlimited protection against governmental regulation,” thus leaving the door open for future regulation.

Anti-First amendment, argued in favor of McCain-Feingold and restricting free speech where “political figures” were involved.

As an undergraduate at Princeton, Kagan wrote a senior thesis titled

"To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933."

In the "Acknowledgments" section of her work, she specifically thanked her brother Marc, “whose involvement in radical causes led me to explore the history of American radicalism in the hope of clarifying my own political ideas.” In the body of the thesis, Kagan wrote:

"In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness.

Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation. Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force?

Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nation’s established parties?...

"Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America.

Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight one’s fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope."

As a Dean of Harvard Law School, Kagan tried to overturn the Solomon Amendment, which is a law that denies federal funding to any university that bars military recruiters from their campuses. 

Kagan also filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to declare the Solomon Amendment unconstitutional. The Court, however, unanimously rejected Kagan’s position.

Kagan also worked on Michael Dukakis’ 1976 Presidential Campaign.  Remember Michael Dukakis?  His campaign for President took a major turn south when he announced during a debate that if his wife were raped and murdered, he would not seek the death penalty for the criminal.

In 1993 Kagan penned an article titled “Regulation of Hate Speech and Pornography" for the University of Chicago Law Review. In that piece, Kagan wrote:

“I take it as a given that we live in a society marred by racial and gender inequality, that certain forms of speech perpetuate and promote this inequality, and that the uncoerced disappearance of such speech would be cause for great elation.”

This left-wing extremist lesbian doesn’t belong on any court.
