Gibbs: Be Exceedingly Careful

Full quote from White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s Supreme Court nomination:
I think it is probably important for anybody involved in this debate to be exceedingly careful with the way in which they’ve decided to describe different aspects of this impending confirmation

Wat? Is that threat? Are you, an agent of the government, scratch that, the one who speaks ex cetera for President Obama, threatening the populace about what we can and can not say about a Supreme Court nominee???
Fhat the wuck???

I tell you what Mr. Press Secretary, and I am being exceedingly careful about what I am saying here, I realize that you and your buddies are running rough shod over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I realize that you wish to re-make the United States in to some sort of socialist paradise. I realize that you don't know the first thing about freedom and liberty. I realize that you simply want crush opposition under your jackboot. I get it.

Realize this: I will oppose you. I will speak out about this nominee, and any other nominee that you present, that does not stand up for freedom. This nominee, does not stand up for freedom. She stands for a certain part of the populace overshadowing another part of the populace. That is not freedom my friend, that is tyranny. In Sotomayor's case, she wishes that white people be oppressed. That is racism.

You cannot have two standards for racism. The definition of racism is when one race is favored over another. You either believe in that, or you are a racist. It is very very simple. Either you judge a person by the color of their skin or you don't. It is like being dead or pregnant. You are or you are not. You can't be a little bit dead, or a little bit pregnant. You either support the notion that all people have equal rights in the eyes of the law or you do not. There is no grey area here.

Choose now Obama administration. Do you want to be known as the Administration that put defenders of freedom on the bench, or do you want to be known as the Administration that put the racists back on the bench? YOU be exceedingly careful.

I got your exceedingly careful right here, pal...
