    Angry Elena Kagan compares the NRA to the KKK

    She is a real threat to the 2nd amendment.

    Did Kagan Compare the NRA with the KKK?

    Friday, June 18, 2010

    It has become clear that Elena Kagan, Obama’s most recent Supreme Court nominee, is no friend of gun rights, to say the least. While clerking for Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall in 1987, she wrote the judge that she was “not sympathetic” to a Second Amendment–based challenge to the D.C. gun ban. While serving in the Clinton administration, she wrote a memo that “paved the way for an executive order banning dozens of semiautomatic weapons,” according to the L.A. Times.

    And National Review has learned that in 1996, Kagan apparently tied the NRA to the KKK — yes, the KKK — while debating the Clinton administration’s position on a bill.

    The bill in question was the Volunteer Protection Act, which, when it was passed and signed the following year, protected some non-profits’ volunteer workers from tort liability in certain cases. The administration worried that it would apply to volunteers from unlikable non-profits.

    Two documents discovered at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and obtained by National Review suggest that Kagan was involved in these discussions. One does not contain her name, but the handwriting appears to be hers. (You can see an example of Kagan’s handwriting here.) It has the name of administration colleague Fran Allegra at the top, and lists two “Bad guy orgs” that might be covered — the NRA and the KKK.

    The second does have Kagan’s name on it; it is a memo from Allegra to Kagan. Allegra reports that he checked the IRS’s “Cumulative List of Organizations Described in Section 170(c)” — the list of tax-exempt organizations, which, he says, are the only organizations the bill would cover — and that neither the NRA nor the KKK was on it. “If you have other names you want me to run down in the Cumulative List, I would be glad to check them out,” he adds, suggesting that Kagan requested the initial check of the NRA and the KKK.

    Is Kagan so hostile to gun rights that she would compare the top gun-rights organization in the United States with a viciously racist hate group? It sure looks that way. We look forward to her explanation.

    Exclamation Here is the letter I sent!!!

    Feel free to cut and paste as required!!!

    I am absolutely appalled by Mr. Obama's nomination for the SCOTUS. Her very actions fly in the face of constitutional rights and upholding federal law. From her lackluster performance of kicking military recruiters off campus to the article below. I cannot support her as a choice and fully believe that you should not either. In my humble opinion she is a very real threat to our American values of honoring the military and those that have served as well as the fact that she is a real threat to the 2nd amendment. Do not support her nomination. Also please remember that 2010 is an election year. We will remember in November those that have not listened to the constituency. Attached is an article by Robert VerBruggen that supports my position and forces me to question how this type of person can even be considered for a position of trust that requires calm reasoning and temperance.

    Will just be another one, if she makes it, to take the oath to protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States and then ignore that oath. If we the people keep allowing this oath to be ignored, shame on us.

    I could tell you what I would compare here to but that would not be very nice. Like most of the elitist that are trying to ruin our country she is very dangerous.

    Why do all the libs forget that the KKK was extreme wing of the DEMOCRAT party, not the Republican party?
    Another part of revisionist history, I guess.
