Rachle Lea Hunter is a Democrat running for a North Carolina Supreme Court seat. She goes around calling herself “Madame Justice.” Madame Nutjob might be more appropriate. She goes around sliming everyone she disagrees with. Criticize her and she’ll call you Der Furher, demonstrating an unoriginality in her thinking that would make her the star pupil in most university social science programs. Or on DU, which amounts to the same thing.
The leaders of the state’s Democratic and Republican parties have asked voters not to cast ballots for state Supreme Court candidate Rachel Lea Hunter, whose fiery rhetoric in recent weeks has included comparing the actions of a black congressional candidate to that of a slave.
“She’s unstable and unqualified, and the thought of her serving on the highest court in North Carolina is scary,” state Republican party chairman Ferrell Blount said Tuesday.
Blount’s comments came after Hunter, a former Republican running as a Democrat, used the title “Dur Fuhrer” — commonly associated with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler — when referring to state Democratic party chief Jerry Meek. Such rhetoric led Meek to endorse Republican-backed incumbent Mark Martin in his race with Hunter for a seat on the state’s high court.
Here’s what earned the latest round of criticism fired her way:
Last week, in a post on her Web site, Hunter criticized congressional candidate Vernon Robinson for running for office as a Republican, even though the staunch and outspoken conservative lost his bid for state GOP chair at the party’s convention in 2005.
“Like a good slave, he has returned to the plantation,” Hunter wrote about Robinson, who is black.
Maybe Madame Racist should be her nickname. Or Madame Eschatologist, since she also likens Robinson to the Beast of Revelation.
Can you imagine sharing an office with Hunter?
“Could you pass me the stapler?”
“No. You’re the beast! The Beast!” A barrage of spittle accompanies the tirade.
“Um, ok. Thanks.”
