'Why not a native American woman? Why not an Indian woman? Why not an Asian woman?'
On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin ripped into Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina for caving to identity politics.
Dave shared a clip from CBS' "Face the Nation" in which Graham says that he supports President Joe Biden’s decision to only pick a black woman as a Supreme Court nominee.
"Whether you like it or not, Joe Biden said, I'm going to pick an African-American woman to serve on the Supreme Court. I believe there are plenty of qualified African-American women, conservative and liberal, that could go onto the court. So I don't concede — I don't see Michelle Childs as an act of affirmative action. I do see putting a black woman on the court, making the court more like America. In the history of our country, we've only had five women serve and two African-American men, so let's make the court more like America," Graham said.
"Sorry, Lindsey Graham, you're exactly the type of politician that we don't need any more," Dave responded. "We don't need that pandering drivel. Nobody is saying that there aren't thousands ... probably hundreds of thousands of qualified black women to sit on the Supreme Court ... but as a marker, as the original starting point ... will just be black women, not that you're not going to pick the best person because the best person might be a black woman, well, first, it's against the law. It's against the law to hire based on skin color and gender. That's number one, a law by the way that had a little something to do with the Supreme Court in the first place. But also, this pandering drivel, that's why you're becoming irrelevant, Lindsey Graham."
"Why not a Native American woman? Why not an Indian woman?" he continued. "Why not an Asian woman? Are there any Chinese-American Supreme Court justices? Korean Supreme Court justices? No? Why do [Democrats] keep going to that group of people? Could it be because they're the ones that basically ... want to endlessly bribe [black Americans] so that they'll keep voting for [Democrats] because otherwise none of [their] policies actually work? And Lindsey Graham, you're now part of it. You're part of this ... neo-racism."
