Franken hurls 'hate' label at Trump judicial nominee

Democrat schooled for 'parroting discredited attacks' by leftists

By: Bob Unruh
Published: 17 hours ago


Sen. Al Franken surrounded by his “Saturday Night Live” castmates.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., has been schooled by one of the nation’s most influential religious liberties organizations for “conflating” real “hate” organizations such as the KKK with mainstream religion after he referenced the Alliance Defending Freedom in those terms.

Michael Farris, president and general counsel for ADF, released a statement after Franken, whose qualifications for the U.S. Senate seat he holds mainly come from writing and performing stand-up comedy, blasted ADF indirectly in his criticism of one of President Trump’s judicial nominees.

The Washington Times reported the senator’s mistake arose when he lobbed a charge at Amy Coney Barrett, a nominee for the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Franken complained that her decision to speak at an event sponsored by ADF makes her unfit to sit on a federal appeals court, because of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s listing of ADF as a “hate” organization.

It’s just one of the ways the minority Democrats tried to delay the appointment of Trump’s nominees to the judiciary.

They previously got stung badly when they opposed the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, prompting the Republicans to trigger the “nuclear option,” just as Democrats had done several years earlier, allowing a simple majority to decide whether or not to hold a floor vote.

Barrett, who has spent most of her career as a law professor at Notre Dame, said she hadn’t been aware of any controversy surrounding ADF.

“I had no reason to think it was a hate group and that was certainly not my experience,” she told Franken.

Farris said it’s “deeply regrettable that Sen. Franken is misinformed about our work on behalf of religious freedom, something so ‘extreme’ that even seven justices of the U.S. Supreme Court agreed with our position three months ago in Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Comer.”
