(Rallying Patriots) – A report from the folks over at The Western Journal has revealed that Minnesota U.S. District Court Judge Wilhelmina Wright is allegedly on the list of individuals Joe Biden has made of potential nominees to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.
In other words, she’s black and a woman so she fits all of the details for character traits that Biden has said are necessary for him to choose a person to nominate to the bench.
However, it seems that senators should be immediately alerted by a massive red flag considering the potential nominee. She is apparently willing to make social justice a higher priority than legal justice, which is exactly what happened during a January sentencing decision.
“The Post Millennial reported that on May 28, 2020, during the George Floyd riots, Montez Terriel Lee Jr. set fire to a Minneapolis pawn shop killing a man whose remains were found in the rubble two months after the fire,” the report said.

“Guidelines called for Lee to receive a minimum sentence of 16.5 to 20 years, according to the Washington Examiner. Wright, however, handed down a 10-year sentence instead,” it continued.
“A memo from the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Minnesota, in other words Biden’s DOJ, had recommended a reduced sentence,” the WJ went on to say in its report.
The memo in question, which was signed by acting U.S. Attorney W. Anders Folk and Assistant U.S Attorney Thomas Calhoun-Lopez, reads, “Mr. Lee was terribly misguided, and his actions had tragic, unthinkable consequences. But he appears to have believed that he was, in Dr. King’s eloquent words, engaging in ‘the language of the unheard.’”
“The Guidelines state that departure below this range is not ordinarily appropriate. However, this is an extraordinary case. The United States therefore seeks a downward variance, and a sentence of 144 months,” the memo goes on to stay.
The memo then goes on to say that “Mr. Lee’s motive for setting the fire is a foremost issue.”
In excerpts from the document, prosecutors seemingly portray Lee as a victim. That’s right, folks. A man lost his life and that is very, very sad, however, Mr. Lee has reportedly been oppressed his whole life, the prosecutors seemingly implied. He just happened to get caught up in the moment.
“Mr. Lee credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence against black men, and there is no basis to disbelieve this statement. Mr. Lee, appropriately, acknowledges that he ‘could have demonstrated in a different way,’ but that he was ‘caught up in the fury of the mob after living as a black man watching his peers suffer at the hands of police,'” one excerpt read.
“As anyone watching the news world-wide knows, many other people in Minnesota were similarly caught up. There appear to have been many people in those days looking only to exploit the chaos and disorder in the interests of personal gain or random violence. There appear also to have been many people who felt angry, frustrated, and disenfranchised, and who were attempting, in many cases in an unacceptably reckless and dangerous manner, to give voice to those feelings. Mr. Lee appears to be squarely in this latter category,” said another.
“And even the great American advocate for non-violence and social justice, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., stated in an interview with CBC’s Mike Wallace in 1966 that ‘we’ve got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard,'” a third excerpt from the document read.
“But the criminal culpability, and the danger to society, that an attempted murderer poses appears much greater than the culpability and danger of Mr. Lee,” the document stated.
“He states that he obtained his GED. … He has had significant troubles in school, but this trouble, as well as his history of drug abuse, again appears to be the result of the abusive and unstable environment in which he grew up. … Mr. Lee had a plan to turn his life around, which appears to have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the document said.
During his sentencing, according to a report published by The Post Millennial, Lee went on to tell the court, “I refuse to not learn from this experience and hope to make something positive from it.”
“This moment in life doesn’t define who I am, but it can help mold me into the person I want to become,” he stated.
“After all of that, prosecutors sought a sentence of 144 months — less than the 200 months the federal guidelines would normally call for, The Post Millennial reported,” WJ said.
That’s when Wright swooped in and sentenced Lee to a total of 120 months, which is more than five years less than what the guidelines demand, and a lot less than what the prosecutors actually asked for.
The Washington Free Beacon went on to report that Republicans in the House, led by Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, are now demanding some sort of explanation from the DOJ, which is exactly what they should do.
These kinds of rulings, social justice rulings, aren’t actually justice at all. Society cannot allow you to kill someone just because you are angry over perceived injustices.
“Lee’s political motives should have no bearing on his sentencing. His alleged anger over the death of George Floyd doesn’t justify the taking of a life — or the burning down of a business either. And the argument that he may not have known a person was inside the building when he set fire to it doesn’t hold water either,” the report said.
Again, this is not justice. It’s placing identity politics ahead of actual justice. Justice is something that needs to be color blind in order to be fair.
