WASHINGTON – Calling Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan “an activist who wants to govern from the bench,” Joseph Farah today announced the launching of a two-pronged campaign to block her confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
“Kagan is a radical anti-military and pro-abortion zealot,” said Farah. “This selection by Barack Obama reveals once again his extremist agenda of leaving America undefended, elevating alternative lifestyles to sainthood and exterminating the most innocent human life with reckless abandon and persecuting anyone who tried to stand in the way. In a nutshell, that’s who Elena Kagan is.”
“I urge everyone to sign the petition and take part in this easy, simple, effective and inexpensive campaign to bombard the Senate with opposition to this nominee,” said Farah.
The letter campaign is based on previously successful efforts in which nearly 10 million “pink slips” were delivered to members of Congress opposing nationalization of health care, cap and trade legislation, hate crimes laws and other bills, as well as the current campaign to stop amnesty in the U.S. Senate.
The “stop Kagan” campaign allows any American citizen to generate 100 individually addressed letters to every U.S. senator, each including the name of the sender and all delivered by Fed Ex for the low price of just $24.95. That comes out to less than the cost of snail-mailing the 100 letters yourself.
The letter to the senators reads:
“In a few months, the America people will have a chance to speak at the polls again. Almost every analyst and every public opinion survey suggests the electorate is angry about the direction of the country. I strongly urge you not to show contempt for the will of the people and the Constitution by confirming the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan.
“Kagan is not what Americans want and she is not what the country needs.
“At a time when federal central control is strangling the American economy, she calls for more regulatory authority not just in Washington, but for the president himself.
“At a time when American security is facing internal and external threats and our nation is still engaged in two foreign wars simultaneously, she advocates banning military recruitment on campuses because of her compulsion to see open homosexual behavior flaunted in the ranks.
“At a time when Americans have been stripped of their ability to write their own laws protecting the lives of the unborn, she advocates the creation of task forces to investigate and prosecute peaceful pro-life activities.
“At a time when Americans are recognizing the unique blessings of their Constitution, she advocates the consideration of foreign laws in shaping Supreme Court rulings.
“For all of these reasons and more we will surely learn about in the days ahead, please reject the nomination of Elena Kagan.”
