When the left is running your country, jurists will be selected based on their private sex lives. So the media are now celebrating the Senate confirmation of the first ever lesbian, Beth Robinson, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.
An associate judge on the Vermont Supreme Court since 2011, Robinson is now the first openly LGBTQ woman to serve on any U.S. appeals court, triumphantly making an individual’s personal sex life into a qualification for judging the actions of others and interpreting U.S. law.
Robinson was confirmed 51 to 45 by the Senate. Every Democrat present voted for her, and liberal Republican female senators Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) did as well, reports Democrat-allied “news” outlet The Huffington Post. The full vote tally can be viewed here.
Robinson, 56, led the freedom-to-marry movement in Vermont.
“Robinson’s confirmation is particularly historic given the dearth of LGBTQ+ representation on our courts and her legacy of advocating for LGBTQ+ equality,” said Rakim Brooks, president of Alliance for Justice, a national association of more than 100 leftist organizations focused on the legal system.
Robinson’s confirmation also shifts the balance of that court to a majority Democrat-appointed panel of judges, ensuring that personal politics and not the law will continue to headway as the focus of the nation’s federal courts. The Senate has now confirmed a total of three of Biden’s nominees to this court.
