Disqualifying Judges who are members of neo-Confederate groups

In going through and indexing neo-Confederate periodicals I come across judges. Not many but some.

I don't think a judge who identifies with the Confederacy should preside over a trial. So one of the questions I think that needs to be asked of a judge is whether he or she is a member of a neo-Confederate organization such as the Sons of Confederate Veterans, United Daughters of the Confederacy, League of the South, Council of Conservative Citizens, etc.

If a judge is a member of a neo-Confederate organization he or she should recuse him or herself from the case.

Again, why defense attorneys don't pursue this question and eliminate biased judges seems to me not to be giving the defendant a full defense.
