Newt's A-Twitter About Sotomayor's Racism

Newt Gingrich, who is the top Twitterer at Top Conservatives on Twitter (TCOT), has called for the immediate withdrawal of recent nominee to the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, based on his classification of her (rightly) as a racist.

Sotomayor stated in 2001, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

The American Bar Association also lists Sotomayor as a member of the racist group, the National Council of La Raza.

Following the nomination, Gingrich sent the following messages on Twitter:

"Imagine a judicial nominee said 'my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman.' new racism is no better than old racism."

"White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw."
