Do Bush Appointed Judges Hate Obama Because He Is Black?

Dennis S wrote an observant piece for Politicus USA. Taking as an example, he cites Richard Cebull, the 67-year-old George W. Bush appointed Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana.

Right-wing Republicans hate Obama because he’s black. That’s a fact that’s been the subtext of virtually every political mouthing made by the extremist element of the party. “Poor, food stamps, housing loans ‘they’ couldn’t afford, ‘they’ don’t wanna work…” There have always

Cebull, the White Jokester

been vehement denials by the offending parties of any racial intent. And here’s another denial. But the action by the judge is so base, so visceral, that it’s beyond denial.

Here’s the email forwarded by the judge to six friends and his brother:

“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’ His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’”

There was a graphic on the e-mail of a mother and son holding hands and looking at a lake… above the picture was the phrase “A Mother’s Love”.

Federal Judges are, in a sense, employees of the President and are not allowed to criticize or condemn him. Period. This was, apparently, a judge who did not understand that something like this sent by e-mail could get posted on the internet and seen by millions, making clear the opinions of the sender.

Cebull’s statement when exposed said:

“because it’s anti-Obama. I apologize to anybody who is offended by it, and I can obviously understand why people would be offended.”

The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan. I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.”

So here we have a Federal Judge admitting his anti-Obama position. Publicly.

Dennis S sums it up very tightly:

The whole unseemly apology reminds me of Christians who spend their whole lives drinking and whoring around, then think a last minute ‘apology’ will get them to heaven. Folks, you can’t commit sins like racism, and it is a sin, and expect to bail yourself out with an insincere bullshit apology.

This what has become to be known as a “Republican Apology“, often stated when they are caught in a difficult position: apologizing to anyone offended by the comment. Note, this is NOT and apology FOR the comment, but an aim at those who disagree with the Republican position.

Cohen and Conyers... Support Them!

Although it is not likely to happen, Democrats John Conyers and Steve Cohen of

the House Judiciary Committee are trying to get a hearing to have Cebull impeached. With Republican control of the House, it is not likely to happen.

Pass it on.

  1. Putting aside for a moment his painfully obvious racism, this is a man whose sole job is to use good judgement. This is one of possibly many cases where he failed to do so. To me, this makes every one of his rulings suspect. He holds the life and liberty of American citizens in his hands daily, and I believe he is not up to that great responsibility.

    The Republican senators of his home state would have you believe that this is about free speech. It is not.
