Trump and the judge
The judge, Gonzalo Curiel, is a member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. Anti-Trumpers will say that doesn’t mean anything, that it’s just a Latino lawyers association. But if they are just a Latino lawyers association, then that’s what they should have called themselves. By choosing the name “La Raza” they open themselves to legitimate speculation that they share the radical left-wing pro-immigrant anti-American-citizen anti-white politics of the National Council of La Raza.
It’s easy to see why a judge with leftwing pro-immigrant politics would be unable to fairly judge Donald Trump. And Trump has a constitutional right to due process of law, and the legal process allows a litigant to request a new judge.
Minorities routinely claim that they can’t be fairly judged by a white judiciary, and a white judge who joined a “white lawyers association” would surely be kicked off the bench for being a “racist,” so there is clearly a PC double standard here. But that’s not the argument Trump is making. It’s not that the judge can’t fairly judge his case because they are different races, but because of different political views.
I really wish Trump wasn’t involved in this lawsuit at all. Trump has said many times that he could have settled the lawsuit for a small amount of money, and if that’s true than he was pretty stupid for not doing so. Trump “University” was, without a doubt, a bogus institution that, from a non-legal perspective, scammed proles out of their money. Whether or not that rises to the legal level of fraud, I’m not sure. Indeed our whole economy is based on selling useless crap to people. But Trump shouldn’t have been involved in such a low-class and scummy business when he could have made just as much money if not a lot more money using his efforts to expand his real estate holdings.
It was many times more expensive, on a per-hour basis, to attend a Hillary Clinton speech than to attend Trump University, but no one is claiming that those who paid to hear Hillary speak were ripped off. However I don’t say this to absolve Trump of bad judgment for getting involved with Trump “University,” but merely to point out another double standard.
The judge thing is not a reason to not vote for Trump. The ideal candidate would have the demeanor of Mitt Romney, the honesty of George Washington, and would be pro-abortion [whoa, I meant pro-choice, I have REALLY been doing a bad job of editing my own posts], a populist, an HBD believer, and even more anti-immigration than Trump. But Trump is the best candidate actually running for the office.
