Freepers Spew Hate at Sotomayor
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has a new book out that tells very personal stories of her rise from an extremely poor family to becoming a top student at Princeton and Yale and then to the highest court in the land. The Daily Mail recounts some of those stories:
Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor revealed the fact that her ex-husband brought a bag of Quaaludes to his new wife on their wedding night.
She also told other unusually personal stories about her upbringing in the Bronx, like how she unknowingly brought her cousin to a drug den where he shot up heroin…
Sotomayor says she was working as a prosecutor when she gave Nelson a lift to what he told her only after the fact was a drug den in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx and waited for him in her car while he shot up heroin inside.
The book also gives a look into her romantic life, detailing her marriage to her high school sweetheart, Kevin Noonan, soon after they graduated from college. They divorced during Sotomayor’s time as a prosecutor in Manhattan, but parted amicably.
One detail Sotomayor notes is that on their wedding night, Noonan produced a bag of Quaaludes- the hynotic-sedative that was popular in the 1970s- that was a gift from his friends. She insisted he flush the pills down the toilet.
A decent and reasonable person would be impressed at her ability to overcome such a disadvantaged childhood to take her place at the highest levels of the legal profession. Even a reasonable conservative would laud this as an example of that “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” idea they love so much. But the assholes at the Free Republic, being neither decent nor reasonable, spew hatred and bigotry instead:
Nothing like a former drug addict scarred psychotic to make life/death decisions.
