GOP Sen. Kennedy holds Biden’s judicial nominee’s feet to the fire
The Obiden-Harris administration has nominated democrat San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Rita F. Lin to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. As is frequently the case, her ethnicity and gender take precedence over her credentials. The announcement notes that if confirmed, Lin would be the second Asian Pacific American woman, and first Taiwanese American woman on the district bench.
Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, delving deeper, questioned her about her previous incendiary opinions regarding members of the Christian Coalition.
Rita Lin, salivating over the prospect of a federal judgeship, says she no longer believes members of the Christian Coalition are “bigots,” something she asserted in an essay when she was a senior at Harvard. “This is what you said, and I quote, your words not mine,” Kennedy stated, ‘”The problem with the Christian Coalition is not that they are Bible thumpers, but that they are bigots.’ Did I quote that correctly?”
Lin responded that the Louisiana senator did quote her correctly but that she does not agree with those statements today.
“I did write that when I was 20 years old…. I do want to be clear. I do not agree with that today. I wrote that before I went to law school, before I had any kind of….”
“You were a grown woman when you wrote this,” Kennedy interjected as he noted that Lin was a junior at Harvard at the time of publication. Despite her notorious bigotry, she was accepted to and graduated from Harvard Law School.
A far-left democrat who previously represented Pres. Trump despising Lambda Legal, Judge Lin was appointed to the Superior Court bench in 2018 by Gov. Jerry ”Moonbeam” Brown. As an incumbent, Lin was the only candidate to file and won the position by default when the election was canceled. Lambda Legal is not appeased, claiming the Biden administration fell short on LGBTQ+ representation.

Although Lin disclosed she suffers from a hearing loss resulting from a childhood illness, she pointedly omitted that her radical biases made her agreeable to both Jerry Brown and Joe Biden. Her polished-up Fact Sheet omits any personal information.
