GOP Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) says violence against judges is understandable

GOP Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) says violence against judges is understandable

"Just about one hour ago on the Senate floor, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) gave an astounding account of the recent spate of violence against judges, suggesting that the crimes could be attributed to the fact that judges are "unaccountable" to the public. Sources on the Hill went and pulled the transcript of what Cornyn said, and it read:
SENATOR JOHN CORNYN: "I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that's been on the news and I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in - engage in violence." [Senate Floor, 4/4/05]
We now have Republican Senators making excuses for terrorists. Explaining why terrorism is understandable. Why terrorists have legitimate concerns. Justifying why the victims of terrorism are really to blame for these heinous crimes. Wonder what Senator Cornyn thinks of rape victims?"

This is unbelievable but totally true. I got this from This is straight from the transcripts "
and this is 100% correct and in context".

It is the Rise of the Fourth Reich..

The RNC is lock-and-step with the Neo-Cons and the "Culture of Death".

They have the Executive Branch, they have the Senate, they have the House...all they need is the Judiciary and they can start shipping liberals off to Syria as enemy combatants...

They are lacing up their black boots!

They sure have high jacked the republican party.

It's shocking to me that Republicans nominated George Bush when they could have nominated a real person like McCain. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have voted for McCain either, but at least he is mostly honest. I mean the man isnt' a friggin crook, he isn't crazy, and he isn't stupid. How could they choose this jackass?

McCain is an OK guy, he is a Republican in the old school sense....

But guys like McCain get crushed by their own NeoCon/RNC party......

We need people like McCain to break ranks...We need a united front. Libertarians, Democrats, Independents, Greens, etc...OUR ENEMIES ARE THE NEOCON/RNC

let me see, Brian Nichols shot and killed an activist judge, activist court reporter and activist police officer and threatened to kill an activist newspaper columnist and held an activist single mother hostage too. Lefkow's mother and husband were both activist too. What the hell is Tom Delay doing to this party. This is too good that I will have to write about this tomorrow and I have to link you.
