Left-wing Witch-hunt of the Federalist Society and Judge Roberts

Monday, 01 August 2005 12:00 AM

The Federalist Society is no more conservative than the American Bar Association is left. Or to put it accurately, the Federalist Society is somewhat less conservative than the American Bar Association is left. And it is far less activist.

The Federalist Society is principally an intellectual forum where conservatives can discuss with liberals issues that they couldn't discuss in law school venues because the totalitarian intolerance of left-wing law professors who control these schools effectively silenced them by excluding them from its platforms. The fact that the Federalist Society is an issue at all is a testament to how the witch-hunt is the essence of left-wing politics, and how successful that politics is.

Imagine if conservatives had made Ruth Bader Ginsburg's leadership role in the ACLU an issue, or her memberhip in the American Bar Association. Or if they had pointed out that Weather Underground terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, for example, sits on august committees and advisory boards of both organizations.

If conservatives did that, a hue and cry would go up from the editorial rooms of the Times and the rest of the left-wing media. MCCARTHYISM! WITCH-HUNT! Which is why conservatives don't do it.

I respect conservatives' decency, but not when it reaches suicidal proportions. If conservatives are reluctant to examine the records of left-wing ideologues like Ginsburg when they come up for nomination, the least they can do is cry Witch-hunt! and identify the witch-hunters as they attempt to block conservative nominations.
