A federal trial judge delivered a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump on Thursday, comparing the president’s “assault on our judiciary” to the Ku Klux Klan and segregationist Dixiecrat George Wallace.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Wayne Reeves of the federal trial court in southern Mississippi launched those broadsides during remarks at University of Virginia Law School, where he was accepting the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal.

“When politicians attack courts as ‘dangerous,’ ‘political,’ and guilty of ‘egregious overreach,’ you can hear the Klan’s lawyers, assailing officers of the court across the South,” Reeves said.

“When the executive branch calls our courts and their work ‘stupid,’ ‘horrible,’ ‘ridiculous,’ ‘incompetent,’ ‘a laughingstock,’ and a ‘complete and total disgrace,’ you can hear the slurs and threats of executives like George Wallace echoing into the present,” the judge added.

Reeves took particular exception to the president’s remarks respecting Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who presided over a civil fraud action against the now-defunct Trump University.

The president called Curiel “biased” and “a hater,” and suggested that the judge should be conflicted out of the case because of his hawkish immigration positions. Curiel is of Mexican descent.

“I know what I heard when a federal judge was called ‘very biased and unfair’ because he is ‘of Mexican heritage,’” Reeves said. “When that judge’s ethnicity was said to prevent his issuing ‘fair rulings.’ When that judge was called a ‘hater’ simply because he is Latino.”

“I heard the words of James Eastland, a race-baiting politician, empowered by the falsehood of white supremacy, questioning the judicial temperament of a man solely because of the color of his skin,” Reeves continued. “I heard those words, and I did not know if it was 1967 or 2017.”

The speech was a remarkable and perhaps unprecedented political intervention by a sitting federal judge, who is required to remain assiduously nonpartisan.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was widely criticized for referring to Trump as a “faker” during the 2016 presidential campaign. She later apologized for the indiscretion.

Chief Justice John Roberts has previously admonished Trump for his rhetoric about the courts.

The chief justice’s statement came after the president derided a judge who enjoined the administration’s asylum rules.

“What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them,” Roberts said. “That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”

    Only a black Jusge could get by with something g like this. If a white Judge said this about OBana there would be hell to pay. This black bastard needs to be thrown off the bench. He isn’t worthy of being a ass wiper, let alone a Judge. He is a racist bastard IMO. If someone wants to call me a racist, then that is fine with me.

    Hmmmmm. Let us guess. You are a Democrat and still butt hurt because we elected a Republican president. After reading your comments it appears you can’t be impartial, so you should not be a judge.

    George Corley Wallace Jr. (August 25, 1919 – September 13, 1998) was the 45th Governor of Alabama, a position he occupied for four terms, during which he promoted “low-grade industrial development, low taxes, and trade schools”.[1] He sought the United States presidency as a Democrat three times, and once as an American Independent Party candidate, unsuccessfully each time. He is best remembered for his staunch segregationist and populist views.[2][3][4] Wallace was known as “the most dangerous racist in America”[5] and notoriously opposed desegregation and supported the policies of “Jim Crow” during the Civil Rights Movement, declaring in his 1963 inaugural address that he stood for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.r”

    This racist judge leaves no doubt as to his bias and racial attitude which I believe he inserts into his judicial decisions every day. He is not fit to hold a seat on the Federal Judiciary and should be impeached by his own speech.

    Kennedy’s last speech. Whenever a Dem exposed the deep state they were smoked. JFK, his brother & his son when he handed in his manuscript on his father’s assassination also MLK. Wait for it 6:45 JFK exposed them
    The KKK always was and still is of the Democratic party it was developed by the Dems to stop Blacks from registering to vote since the time of Lincoln right up to 1957 when once again they controlled the house & voted Civil rights DOWN Then until 1964 Republicans had the house majority & got it passed. Remember that folks & remember MLK & Selma & the mob waiting for them & the police stand down Black’s had to cross the bridge to Montgomery where they had to go to register. The KKK was caught by the TV cameras & the world witnessed it. Democrats did the same thing when women wanted the right to vote they harassed the marchers shouting women’s place was in the home & no place in politics. They only reason that right was passed was because of 2 more Republicans in the house then Dems at the time and those two votes got it passed. Just in case you have any doubts take a look. https://youtu.be/UWHwuq2pUBw Race baiting
    The KKK just gave her $20,000 did see her give it back.

    Another case that you can say racist things about a white conservative but you can’t criticize a Muslim Democrat that is anti American like Omar. This is one of those non qualified Judges electioned by Obama. He put in thousands of these corrupt racist Judges during his 8 long antagonizing years of destroying our country.

    And that’s no different from a Federal Judge accusing President Trump of racism? Lest we forget, the KKK was a product of Southern Democrats and that the avowed racist George Wallace was also a Democrat. This “judge” obviously suffers from foot-in-mouth disease.

    Another Judge who does not know history. President Trump awarded for his part in civil rights movement next to Miss Parks. He is the least racist President we have had in a long time. God knows Obama was a racist one and still is.
