'Black-robed masters': A dangerous label pushed by those warring against accountability

by Jeremy Hooper

Judges shunned for both accurately doing their job and properly donning their required wardrobe: Just another day in Michelle Bachmann's America:

DES MOINES – Ripping judges as “black-robed masters,” Michele Bachmann praised conservative Iowans on Wednesday for sacking three members of the state Supreme after they legalized gay marriage.

Bachmann, speaking to a group of home school advocates, credited conservatives with sending a “shot across the bow” to judges throughout the country.

“You said enough is enough and sent them packing, and I’m very proud of what you’ve done,” she said, repeatedly calling judges “black-robed masters.”

Of course she repeated "black-robed masters." That's what one does when he or she wants to cultivate a deeply disturbing talking point that wars against the fair-minded independence of one of government's branches. Much easier than encouraging the crowd to actually sit down and give the Varnum opinion a neutral read or to actually examine the arguments presented at the court.

But what's with focusing so much of their sartorial choices? What does Rep. Bachmann want them to wear: muzzles, earphones, blindfolds, and anything else that might assist rights-depriving heterosexism's unfettered reign?
