Justice Had Made Ugly Attacks Against LGBT People, Americans’ Choice of Bill ClintonÂ
Wisconsin state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley is facing calls to resign after aÂ progressive issue advocacy organization released published works she had written during her college years.
“Heterosexual sex is very healthy in a loving marital relationship. Homosexual sex, however, kills,” Rebecca Bradley wrote in a piece published in 1992 by Marquette University’s student newspaper, the Marquette Tribune.Â Marquette is a private Catholic University.Â
Bradley, who was appointed to the Wisconsin State Supreme Court last year by GOP Gov. Scott Walker, also wrote that “the homosexuals and drug addicts who do essentially kill themselves and others through their own behaviorÂ deservedly receive none of my sympathy.”
One Wisconsin Now, a non-profit, non-partisan group,Â describes Justice Bradley’s writings as “a series of hateful and venomous attacks on gay people and people living with HIV.” The group on its website notes that Bradley, “in multiple instances, derisively referred to members of the LGBTQ community as ‘queers’ and ‘degenerates’, claimed ‘homosexual sex kills,’ mocked the AIDS epidemic and declared the nearly 45 million voters who supported President Clinton were, ‘either totally stupid or entirely evil.'”
The group classifies Bradley’s writings as “hate speech.” One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot RossÂ says it “disqualifies Bradley from continuing to hold office and should result in her immediate resignation from the state Supreme Court.”
The writings include both letters to the editorÂ and a column and were obtained from One Wisconsin Now byÂ The New Civil Rights Movement. They are signed “Rebecca Grassl,” Bradley’s maiden name.Â
In a column blasting the election of President Bill Clinton, whom she called a “murderer,” Bradley wrote: “Congratulations, everyone. You have now elected a tree-hugging, baby-killing, pot-smoking, flag-burning, queer-loving, draft-dodging, bull-spouting ’60s radical socialist adulterer to the highest office in our nation. Doesn’t it make you proud to be an American?”
“You have voted for a man who will judge people on the basis of their color through quotas. I wonder if white men will receive undeserved and unearned preferences over blacks and women as they become increasingly disadvantaged.”
Anticipating â€‹changes to the â€‹health care â€‹system, Bradley in her 1992 column claimed: “You have voted for a national health care system which will force you to wait months for the heart surgery you need today. But at least every bum on the street will be able to get a band-aid.”
“One will be better off contracting AIDS than developing cancer because those afflicted with the politically correct disease will be getting all of the funding. How sad that the lives of degenerate drug addicts and queers are valued more than the innocent victims of prevalent ailments.”
TheÂ Journal Sentinel reports “Bradley said Monday she was embarrassed about the columns,” which she wrote “‘as a very young student, upset about the outcome of that presidential election.'”
“To those offended by comments I made as a young college student, I apologize, and assure you that those comments are not reflective of my worldview,” Bradley said in a statement. “These comments have nothing to do with who I am as a person or a jurist, and they have nothing to do with the issues facing the voters of this state.”
Bradley is currently up for election on April 5.

Trump’s ICE Is Using Torture to Quickly Deport Africans Back to a Deadly War-Torn Country
The central African country of Cameroon is currently experiencing a four-year separatist conflict that has killed over 3,000 people and displaced half a million more with “extrajudicial killings, forced disappearances, arbitrary and unlawful detention and torture.”
But Cameroonians who fled to the U.S. to seek political asylum here as refugees are experiencing torture as well from private prison guards and agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Louisiana and Mississippi.
A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center and Freedom for Immigrants includes six Cameroonians who say they were physically forced to sign deportation documents that they didn’t understand and threatened with choking, pepper spray, physical pain and prolonged detention if they refused.
One accuser said that ICE agents and private guards stripped him naked from the waist down, exposing his genitals and buttocks to a room of 10 people, while forcing him to sign. Others said they and other refugees were fed substandard food, subject to a humiliating full-body strip search, and housed alongside federal prisoners while waiting for their court proceedings.
If true, the actions would violate Louisiana state and federal law, the international Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment, which the U.S. has ratified, as well as ICE’s own policies within its 2011 Performance Based National Standards, Newsweek reports.
Trump has deported anywhere from 94 or 116 Cameroonians back to their home country since October. The Cameroon government has detained refugees who return to their shore to interrogate them for any separatist ties.
Trump Is Already Planning a 2024 Run Just So Biden Won’t Get All the Press Attention
President Donald Trump is reportedly discussing launching his 2024 re-election campaign kickoff event on January 20 just to overshadow President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Yes, really.
The Daily Beast has cited three officials who Trump has reportedly discussed the idea with. He is assessing which big-dollar donors would support his bid and which political underlings would remain loyal to him just to benefit from whatever happens.
“Trump’s scheming about a future White House run is both an implicit recognition that he views his own current legal efforts as longshots and a reflection of his inherent desire to maintain political power and public attention,” The Daily Beast writes.
According to Bloomberg News, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, reportedly told Trump, “If you do that—and I think I speak for everybody in the room—we’re with you 100 percent.”
Trump still has yet to officially concede. On Thursday he told reporters, “It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud.” Trump has been unable to prove his repeated claims of “massive fraud” in over 30 lawsuits which have either failed, been dismissed or withdrawn by his own re-election campaign.
Unfortunately for Trump, two comedians have already snatched up DonaldJTrump2024.com and are using the site to repeatedly call Trump a loser. They offered to give Trump the URL if he’ll concede and call himself a sad loser via Twitter.
Comedians Bought DonaldJTrump2024.com Just so They Could Mock Him as the Loser He Is
Two comedians Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler (aka “The Good Liars”) purchased DonaldJTrump2024.com and set it up to mock President Trump for refusing to concede the election, planning a 2024 re-run, and ripping off his followers.
The site, which looks almost identical to Trump’s actual website, DonaldJTrump.com, calls Trump a “loser” six times and has a fictional quote from Trump stating, “I lost the 2020 election.” It also has a banner that says “Click here to donate to a PAC that has nothing to do with my legal defense team.”
The banner refers to the fact that while Trump has been begging his supporters to donate to his so-called “Official Election Defense Fund” in hopes of overturning the election in the courts, the legal fine print on his money asks says that if anyone donates less than $8,000, the money won’t go to his legal fights at all but will instead go to the Republican National Committee or “Save America,” a Trump leadership PAC (political action committee), according to Reuters.
The comedians wrote to Trump in a November 24 tweet, “Hey @realDonaldTrump we’ll give you DonaldJTrump2024.com if you tweet ‘My name is Donald Trump and I lost the 2020 election by A LOT. I am a loser. SAD!”.
