Mark Paoletta, former general counsel to the Office of Management and Budget under former President Donald Trump, claimed in an interview that Democrats hate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas because he’s black.
Paoletta shared the remark during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Racially motivated attacks
“It was just an excuse to have a hearing to go after Justice Thomas for these bogus kind of ethics charges against him, which is that his wife has a career and has opinions, and when she expresses them, he can’t be a judge or can’t rule on any of those issues.
“So it’s an absolutely absurd standard. That’s never been applied to any justice or judge in history,” Paoletta said during the interview.
Those on the left “hate[s] Thomas because is a black conservative who has never bowed to those who demand that he must think a certain way because of the color of his skin,” he added.
What’s the evidence?
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) had called Thomas an “Uncle Tom because of his views on voter ID and affirmative actions, when, in fact, more black Americans support voter ID and with respect to affirmative action in college education, 62 percent are opposed to it,” according to Paoletta.
Rep. Jeffries: “What evidence do you have to support” that Dems hate Clarence Thomas because he’s a black conservative?@MarkPaoletta: The Chairman of this committee called him an Uncle Tom.
Rep. Jeffries: He has freedom of speech.
“Can I give you another example.”

The words used against Thomas revealed that the left’s claims to be inclusive appear to only apply to those who share the left’s political views.
The views against Thomas are not based on diversity but rather on party.
Two views of Justice Clarence Thomas emerged along party lines during a House Judiciary subcommittee hearing on ethics in the Supreme Court.

The left’s false diversity is now showing its ugly head as Democrats cannot help but attack Thomas over his views that they oppose.
