Wisconsin’s New Supreme Court Justice Once Sneered At “Queers,” “Degenerates” Who Were Dying Of AIDS

by Dan Tracer April 06, 2016

We admit we weren’t aware of Rebecca Bradley before today, but after digging around for a bit for info on Wisconsin’s newest Supreme Court Justice, blissful ignorance is starting to sound pretty nice.

Bradley had the strong support of the conservative movement behind her, and all that right-wing fervor — helmed by the strong support of Governor Scott Walker — paid off.

In the weeks leading up to the election, the progressive group One Wisconsin Now tracked down some of Bradley’s opinion columns she wrote while a student at Marquette University in the early 1990s.

It’s important to remember that the world was a different place then, but even so, her comments are more than troubling given her current seat of power.

In one column, Bradley attacks people trying to bring attention to the AIDS crisis, scorning “their misdirected compassion for the degenerates who basically commit suicide through their behavior.”

She also wrote it was far better to have AIDS than cancer “because those afflicted with the politically-correct disease will be getting all of the funding.”

“How sad that the lives of degenerate drug addicts and queers are valued more than the innocent victims of more prevalent ailments,” she added.

In a separate column, Bradley compares abortion to slavery and the Holocaust.

She has since apologized for the content of the columns, saying they have “nothing to do with who I am as a person or a jurist, and they have nothing to do with the issues facing the voters of this state.”

Bradley will serve for the next ten years on the states’ Supreme Court.
