Jake DiMare wonders what Judge Cebull was feeling when he hit send?
Today I will share the heartwarming tale of a respected man in America. Nominated by President George W Bush, chief judge for the District of Montana, U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull. According to the Great Falls Tribune, on Wednesday, Judge Cebull admitted to sending an email, meant to sully the President of the United States, by insinuating that the President’s mother attended an interracial, bestial sex party, where he was conceived.
The forwarded text reads as follows:
“Normally I don’t send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.
“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’” the email joke reads. “His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’”
Where to begin? The thing I like most about writing for the Good Men Project is I can ask questions about what it means to be a good man. I don’t have a fancy journalism degree, but I am free to ask questions. A story like this has so very many questions. But before I do, I want to put the disclaimer out there: I am assuming it is important to be a good man if you are a Federal judge. I’m also assuming any rational person would agree, racism is not considered the hallmark of a good man.
OK, let’s start with the simple stuff. How does a man this racist become a federal judge? This is not a rhetorical question. I am really curious to know how this is possible. It’s not like the guy is a car salesman. his job is to JUDGE others fairly and impartially. I’d say his credibility just went out the window on that score.
Second question: How does a man this stupid become a federal judge? Seriously. I’ve even managed to get my 75 year old grandfather, who suffers from a multitude of mental problems, to understand you don’t forward any email with content you are not comfortable sharing in public.
Third question: Why is it the mainstream media, supposed to be so ‘liberal’ isn’t asking these very questions?
Finally…And this is the best one of all…I love the part where Judge Cebull says: “I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this”. Judge Cebull…Man to man…What did you feel brother? I mean, you sent this from your official email account at the Federal court. Were you in your man robe when you imagined a white woman at an interracial sex party banging a dog? Are you sure it was your heart being touched when you pressed the send button? America wants to know.
