Not all judges these days are crazy left-wing zealots intent on changing America into a communist Obamatopia, but the ones who aren’t and speak up are likely to pay a price.
It’s one thing to usurp and overrule the President of the United States twice and the Supreme Court of the United States in bench legislation, as Obama’s choomy so-called Judge Derrick Watson did in the case of the executive order terrorist importation pauses. That’s acceptable behavior apparently, as no sanctions were issued for any of the offenses, with tortured, irrational and disjointed non-opinions barely issued in explanation.
But let a judge denounce the leftist Democrat hit squad, the AntiFa thug force, and there’s hell to pay. One Atlanta judge is paying for his transgressions now, at home and out of a job. It’s not because of an on-the-job error in judgment, having violated his oath or ruled, as Judge Watson did, utilizing a portion of his anatomy typically reserved for use as a foundation while sitting.
Judge James Hinkle wrote on his personal Facebook page the truth about the so-called “anti-fascist” fascists, the loathsome AntiFa Democrat goons. Judge Hinkle wrote, “It looks like all of the snowflakes have no concept of history. It is what it is. Get over it and move on.”
Accept the past that they can’t change, stop whining and move on? How racist! Next thing he’ll probably be wanting them to accept responsibility for their own actions. What kind of judge is this guy? Certainly he’s unfit to hold that office. Hinkle went on to say, “Confederate monuments in Virginia have the rear ends of horses facing north.” The Judge added in a second post, “PERFECT TUESDAY MORNING. The nut cases tearing down monuments are equivalent to ISIS destroying history.”
That’s just too much truth for the Georgia judicial system to handle. Shortly thereafter Judge Hinkle was advised by Gwinnett County’s chief magistrate Kristina Hammer Blum that he was suspended. After letting him stew for a day, Judge Blum took it one step further and forced Judge Hinkle to resign. One doesn’t belittle the Democrat street thugs and get away with it.
Blum issued a statement at about 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday stating that Judge Hinkle had “offered his immediate resignation from his position as a part-time Magistrate.”
She said, “For 14 years, Judge Hinkle has dutifully served this Court. He is a lifelong public servant and former Marine. However, he has acknowledged that his statements on social media have disrupted the mission of this court, which is to provide justice for all.”
Of course if he had said the same thing about the white boys holding their monument rally or President Trump, not a word would have been said unless to offer praise for his professional insight or some other idiotic liberal tripe.
Blum added that Judge Hinkle is entitled to his personal opinions, but when they go against the snowflakes, it’s voicing them is clearly a mistake. She said, “While, thankfully, our Constitution protects the rights of all citizens to express their opinions, judges are held to a more stringent standard by the Judicial Canons.”
The Georgia Code of Judicial Conduct requires that judges always act in a way that “promotes public confidence.” She said, “Under this heightened standard, the right of the public to a judiciary free from even the appearance of bias takes priority over any judge’s necessarily limited right to individual expression while serving in that office.”
In her self-righteous butt-covering statement Blum told WSB TV: “I have made it clear to all of our judges to conduct themselves in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity, impartiality, and fairness of the judiciary. I consider any violation of those principles and policies to be a matter of utmost concern.”
Like any clear thinking person who isn’t a libtard, Hinkle said he didn’t see anything wrong with his actions, adding, “But you know, with the way things are going in the world today, I guess everything’s controversial.”
He’ll be a lot happier away from that nuthouse, that lunatic liberal in charge and all of those melting snowflakes.
