Trump and His Judges

In November 1933 in New York, Mrs. Maria Griebl refused to be questioned by a Jewish lawyer or appear before Jewish judges saying, "I am asking for a neutral district attorney or judge, preferably Christian." Mrs. Griebl was an American Nazi.
That same year in Munich, a Jewish lawyer went to the police to file a complaint over the arrest of a client. He was beaten by the police who cut off his trousers and forced him to walk the street wearing a sign reading, "I will never again complain to the police." By 1938, all Jewish judges in Germany had been removed from office and disbarred and it was illegal for Jews to practice law.

On June 3, 2016 Republican nominee for President Donald Trump declared the judge in his Trump U fraud case was prejudice specifically because of his Hispanic heritage. On June 5, Trump declared that he believed any Muslim judge was incapable of impartiality.

Trump and his acolytes suggest the judge is a disloyal American because he is a member of a Hispanic law association (La Raza Lawyers of San Diego). They also incorrectly tie him to the National Council of La Raza (NCLA).[Note: "La Raza" is Spanish for "The People." The NCLA is an advocacy group similar to the NAACP or B'nai B'rith.]

It's a weird world where if you hate Jews you get to demand a non-Jewish judge and if you hate Mexicans you can demand a non-Hispanic judge. It's a weird world but one we have seen before. The next step is mobs of loyal nationalists dragging judges from the hated group from courts to be beaten. Then disbarring them. Then comes mass deportations. Anyone who claims that the judiciary will stop Trump's mass deportations are ignoring the fact that bravery is suicide when the world has gone mad.
