The Democrats will likely have an opportunity to fill a Supreme Court vacancy. As expected, they’ve turned it into an opportunity for racism against a black conservative.
Mainstream news personalities have launched another round of racist attacks against Justice Clarence Thomas, the Daily Caller reported. These were part of a renewed discussion of Thomas in light of an upcoming vacancy left by Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement.
President Joe Biden had previously promised to fill any vacancies by appointing a black woman. This meant it was open season on the issue of race, and that brought the focus back to Thomas.
Racial activist Bree Newsome went after Thomas directly Wednesday when rumors about the court’s vacancy began to emerge. “The white establishment responded to demands for a Black replacement for Thurgood Marshall by installing Clarence Thomas,” she tweeted. “If we’re not precise in our language & political demands beyond ‘someone who LOOKS like us,’ they will absolutely scour the earth for the most conservative, white-adjacent Black woman they can find, celebrate themselves for being bipartisan & tell us we can stop protesting now,” she claimed in the social media thread.
Actor and political commentator John Fugelsang similarly tweeted a screed against Thomas being supposedly anti-civil rights. “No, it’s Clarence Thomas who doesn’t care about minority rights, and there’s 30 years of evidence to prove it,” he replied to a discussion about Breyer’s potential replacement. “He was hired to undo Thurgood Marshall’s work, the way Amy Coney Barrett was hired to undo RBG’s work.”
The hosts on “The View” took their potshots, including co-host Joy Behar. “Clarence Thomas, a black guy, a black man, a justice, okay, I’ll give it to him he’s a smart guy, but he is to the right of Attila the Hun this guy,” she said on Thursday’s program. “They put him in there thinking, ‘oh, a black man will go against voting rights,’ which is what he does.”
Co-host Sonny Hostin also put in her two cents, lamenting, “it was terribly disrespectful to appoint someone like Clarence Thomas with his philosophies to the seat of Thurgood Marshall.” Of course, these hosts on the program imply that Thomas — a black man — is himself a racist who opposes civil rights.
The left gets away with the most disgusting bigotry against conservatives. For them, minorities are only a protected class as long as they vote with the left — otherwise, all bets are off.
