So, Trump says the judge in his Trump University class action lawsuit is biased against him because he’s Hispanic and the whole world loses their stuff over it. Turns out that, at a minimum, it’s not outside the realm of possibility. If a judge is presiding over a case of a man who opposes illegal immigration, and that same judge associates professionally with people who openly support that you would be fool to think there’s no chance of bias there.
Especially when it’s liberal judges (as Curiel, an Obama appointee, very likely is) we’re dealing with.
This is why I always try reserve judgement in situations like this before posting anything, because there’s always another shoe to drop.
Emphasis in bold is mine:
Curiel is a member of the California La Raza Lawyer’s Association (its San Diego chapter, to which Curiel belongs, lists the pro-illegal group the National Council of La Raza, as a community member) — and it has also been revealed that one of the founders of the La Raza Lawyer’s Association called for California to be turned into a “Hispanic State” and that whites should “go back to Europe.”
Breitbart parsed portions of a 2010 Snopes report on La Raza Lawyer’s Association’s founder, Mario Obledo:
The lawyers’ association to which Judge Gonzalo Curiel belongs was co-founded by a man who publicly bragged about Hispanics taking over California and all of the state’s governmental institutions–and insisted that whites should go back to Europe.
The Snopes report from 2010 states:
Mario Obledo was a co-founder of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and the La Raza Lawyers of California bar association, and he formerly served as California’s Secretary of Health and Welfare. We don’t know exactly when and where he first made his controversial statement about California’s becoming a “Hispanic state,” but he has confirmed he said it at least twice: during an appearance on Ray Briem’s talk radio show in May or June of 1998, and again on Tom Leykis’ talk radio show:
Obledo: “We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state.”
Caller: “You also made the statement that California is going to become a Hispanic state, and if anyone doesn’t like it, they should leave. Did you say that?”
Obledo: “I did. They ought to go back to Europe.”
The statements were also reported by the New York Times in their 2010 obituary for Obledo.
Maybe it doesn’t have merit, maybe this is guilt by association. We don’t know know but we know this…if Trump was the Democrat’s nominee for president we would’ve known about this judge’s history and bias, like, yesterday.
Also, the MSM would’ve reported it whether it existed or not.
