Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, one of the greatest minds we have on the high court today, said that “the modern-day liberal” has been a bigger “impediment” towards him than members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Those remarks can be seen in a soon-to-be-released documentary “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.”
In the documentary, Thomas reflects on his combative 1991 Supreme Court confirmation, where Thomas explains that the modern-day liberal has proven to be more of a worry than the people he was originally worried about most of his young life.
From ABC News:
“I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it’s gonna be the Klansmen; it’s gonna be the rural sheriff.’” Thomas said.
“But it turned out that through all of that, ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern-day liberal,” he continued. “They were the ones who would discount all those things because they have one issue or because they have the power to caricature you.”
The documentary is extremely to the point.
The documentary, produced by filmmaker Michael Pack and Manifold Productions, is set to air on PBS in spring 2020, per ABC News:
Thomas sat for more than 22 hours of interviews over a six-month period in 2018, according to the film’s publicist. Manifold has advertised the movie as a chance to “tell the Clarence Thomas story truly and fully, without cover-ups or distortions.”
The movie also casts a spotlight on Biden, who has faced renewed criticism from his fellow Democrats for his treatment of Anita Hill, an African-American law professor who had accused Thomas of sexual harassment and testified publicly before the committee during the 1991 hearings. Biden called Hill to apologize earlier this year for his handling of the case.
Thomas said the confirmation hearing was nothing more than an attempt to get rid of him. And Democrats haven’t changed a bit since 1991, as we saw last year with the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, where Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee – three of which are running for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination: Amy Klobuchar(D-MN), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) – went along with a public smear job of invented lies of a sexual assault nature about the nominee, in the same manner they did against Justice Thomas. Their treatment of Kavanaugh was so bizarre many believe it cost the Democrats the Senate majority in the 2018 mid-term elections.
“Most of my opponents on the Judiciary Committee cared about only one thing: how would I rule on abortion rights,” Thomas said. “You really didn’t matter, and your life didn’t matter. What mattered was what they wanted. And what they wanted was this particular issue.”
Democrats could not have a conservative black on the Supreme Court, because up until that point they, with the help of their willing accomplices in the mainstream news media, purported that there were no black Republicans or black conservatives in America.
Democrats run a scorched earth policy when they fight against a popular myth they’ve been running for years.
“Do I have like stupid written on the back of my shirt? I mean come on. We know what this is all about,” Thomas said at one point in the film “‘This is the wrong black guy, he has to be destroyed,’” he continued, characterizing those who opposed his confirmation to the Supreme Court in 1991. “Just say it. And now at least we’re honest with each other.” Remembering the moment that Anita Hill’s allegations that he had sexually harassed her were made public, Thomas says, that’s when “all heck broke loose.”
He added that “the idea was to get rid of me.”
“And then after I was there, it was to undermine me,” he continued.
It’s disgusting what the Democrats did to Justice Thomas, and continue to do to him to this day, the self-described champions of American minorities. The thing about it is, you have to be of the “chosen” minority class, which always means liberal, in order to be considered “protected” by Democrats. Think about it. Democrats claim to be fighting for blacks, Hispanics, women, LGBT and other minorities, but only if they’re liberal and follow the leftist orthodoxy to which they subscribe.
Democrats always talk about diversity, pointing to people of different colors and ethnicity in their party, but diversity isn’t just about skin color or sexual orientation. It’s about diversity of thought, diversity of ideas and beliefs that also matter, and with the Democratic Party there’s none of that. You don’t get that in the liberal collective. Like the Borg, you will be assimilated, or you will be ostracized. You’re not considered black, Hispanic, or LGBT “worthy” if you aren’t a leftist. That’s been going on since before the days Justice Thomas fought against it in 1991, and many believe it’s gotten a whole lot worse ever since.
