Why is such an influential 'conservative' group so silent about such a civil rights victory?
A funny thing happened on the way to yesterday’s US Supreme Court victory for Michigan.
Greg McNeilly, and the DeVos funded Freedom fund were unusually quiet. The all-things-go except true equality “Freedom Fund” was silent on the issue, offering no opinion, no support, or any insight where it stands with regard to racial preferences. Apparently, this influential, well financed, political advocacy group had no qualms about the state constitution being squashed by activist judges.
The question if of whether we should be surprised was answered years ago. In 2003, Greg McNeilly, who was the executive director under Michigan Republican party chair Betsy DeVos, made it clear that voters should not be in charge of repairing the mistaken race based decision making process.
“Deliberative debate on sensitive issues such as racial preferences all too often may shade into rancor. But that does not justify removing certain court-determined issues from the voters’ reach.Democracy does not presume that some subjects are either too divisive or too profound for public debate.The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.
