Leftoid daughter of Ghanaian immigrants, a nutter. Time to stop all immigration.


A left-wing activist with ties to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) nominated by President Joe Biden to be a federal judge has argued photo ID and proof of citizenship constitute “voter suppression.”​
Nancy Gbana Abudu, the deputy legal director at SPLC, was picked by Biden in December to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. The 11th Circuit covers parts of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The vacancy came about upon the retirement of Judge Beverly B. Martin — a President Barack Obama appointee.​
...​
Biden put forth 75 judges in 2021. The memo states that his nominees “reflect the diversity” Biden “promise[d]” in courts and that Abudu “would be the first African-American woman judge ever to sit on the Eleventh Circuit.”​
‘Voter Suppression’ Remarks
In a 2011 interview dug up by The Daily Wire, Abudu asserted that “95 percent” of her work with the ACLU at the time involved “voting rights.” She notably said “photo ID” and “proof of citizenship,” two long-established requirements to vote, are indicative of “voter suppression:”​
Obviously, we do a lot when it comes to voter suppression, which includes five priority areas: photo ID, proof of citizenship, restrictions we see when it comes to registration … early voting as well as absentee voting and the restrictions we see when it comes to criminal convictions. We also do a lot with student voting.

Abudu said her “biggest concern” as an ACLU attorney “regarding voter suppression” was states “passing laws requiring voters to have photo IDs.” She slammed South Carolina for not permitting students to show campus IDs to vote, calling it “restrictive.”​
...​
Abudu echoed the administration’s “Jim Crow” sentiment in a June 2020 article. She claimed America is a “separate and unequal society” and that the criminal justice system “ruins people’s lives forever.” She also said laws barring convicted felons from voting are similar to slavery. See below:

When you add laws that prohibit people with a criminal conviction from voting, it’s practically the same system as during slavery – Black people who have lost their freedom and cannot vote. And without access to the ballot, a victim of the system cannot elect the very officials pulling the levers to hire the police, determine which cases are prosecuted and what sentences are imposed.

If America cannot be defeated militarily it certainly can be defeated from within. Most nations/empires through time have collapsed from within due to the Divide & Conquer strategy. D&C takes longer to accomplish but is far less costly in both labor($$$$$) & loss of life than military endeavors. Only after a nation/empire has been taken over does the loss of life & infrastructure take place, kind of like a deferred payment plan... one does not feel it until the payment comes due!

The thread premise is a lie.

In her 2011 interview, Abudu said nothing about opposing proof of citizenship or that citizenship requirements should be eliminated.

She was referring to placing unwarranted, unnecessary burdens to documenting citizenship detrimental to minority voters.

The right’s propensity for dishonesty and lying is infinite.

As bad as it may be, with that resume, it's kind of like saying that the Cookie Monster likes cookies.

Subversive leftist-speak for suborning voter fraud. We understand race-baiting Marxist whores like you just fine. Now drop and give me 20!

Well, if an attorney doesn’t understand the law in that only American citizens are allowed to vote furthermore that a person is required to show proof of citizenship prior to voting then one, how the hell could that attorney ever have passed the bar and secondly how could this person even be considered worthy of sitting on the bench. Either the transcript is bogus or someone’s elevator is stuck between floors. I always thought the states governed validation of ones right to vote and maintenance of voter registration rolls. So presenting ID is a form of repression? Try cashing a check.

Then it's up to 'We The People' that have taken the oath to defend our Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; and bear true faith and allegiance to the same;

Bill Clinton also tried to appoint an obviously racist far left extremist.
He later had to withdraw her.
For some reason the Democrats love racists.
WTF?
You don't even read your own links?

'Bill Clinton also tried to appoint an obviously racist far left extremist'
NO, he didn't.

Clinton mentioned in particular an article Guinier had written for the University of Michigan law review that “seemed to be arguing for principles of proportional representation and minority veto” in legislative bodies--notions that he said are “inconsistent” with his own beliefs.

Clinton insisted that political calculations--his Administration’s desire to appear more centrist and his need to court Senate votes for his economic package--had not driven his decisions on Guinier. “It is not the fear of defeat that has prompted this decision. It is the certainty that the battle would be carried on a ground that I could not defend,” he said.

Abudu clearly wants to make and shape laws and policy. The role of a judge is to interpret based on current law.
