Beneath Contempt


To be brutally truthful with you, it's hard not to waste a lot of time thinking about Judge Clarence Thomas. I find it painfully ironic that only the second African American Justice in American history is the most blatantly corrupt member of that body -
at least in my lifetime. What has always amused me more than anything about Judge Thomas is his positive revulsion against the very existence of Affirmative Action. I need to repeat something I wrote on this site over a decade ago. I need to repeat it here:

"According to Uncle Thomas in his recently published memoir, My Grandfather's Son, when he received his diploma from Yale Law School, he put a "fifteen cents" sticker on it and relegated it to the basement of his home. You see, Clarence Thomas believes that it was the very existence of affirmative action that made his law degree all-but-worthless. To his way of thinking, he would have been much better off had he just pursued his dream of becoming a lawyer only on the merits of his talent and abilities and not relied on the good intentions of all those evil, white, liberal, do-gooders. In his mind, his place on the Supreme Court would today be all-the-more significant and he would be sitting on that revered bench free of the guilty conscience that obviously torments him to this very day. His place in the halls of justice would have meant so much more had all of those silly and stupid Great Society types not interfered with his ambitions.
Question: Just where do you think Clarence Thomas would be today had it not been for affirmative action?
Answer: He would be mounted on the front lawn of some beer distributor's home in Albany, Georgia, wearing a jockey uniform and holding a lamp."


Back in the 1960s, Justice Abe Fortes was force dto resign in disgrace when it was revealed that he had received $20,000 from a businessman. Thomas has been caught red-handed accepting private luxury transportation and vacations worth half a million dollars for himself and his wife, extreme right wing activist GinnyThomas. In recent years Thomas has ruled on cases involving his wife that he should have recused himself from. In one particularly glaring case, Thomas was only one of nine justices who voted in favor of Ginny's case. This is the worst example of judicial corruption that I am aware of in history.

Malcolm X had a term for black men like Clarence Thomas. He called them "House Niggers",  Black men who would pull up the ladder that they themselves took advantage of to prevent those of their own race from taking advantage of the societal programs that allowed those very same people from moving forward. 

He's beneath contempt.

He needs to resign. This corrupt Uncle Tom can no longer be allowed to be passing judgement on the rest of us.

CT has no appearance of propriety and should resign immediately. The SC needs to ask him to resign before further damage is done and you know it is coming as recent reports are just the tip of the iceberg.

The Robert's court will be complicit if it doesn't get him to leave, enact a code of ethics, and restore some of the courts impartiality. If they cannot hold themselves accountable, then Congress will have to get that job done and exercise impeachment when necessary.

No one is above the law.

How Very Racist of you Tom.

Daily Kos is a political organization, focused on the U.S. Democratic Party and liberal American politics.

Tom has made that very clear his feelings towards a Black Conservative, but that’s no justification for making blatantly racist comments about a black man who doesn’t agree with him.

Sadly Liberals ignore the criminal acts of President Biden and his family.

A couple of weeks ago the supreme court ruled against Steven Donziger who has been persecuted by the legal system on behalf of the Cheveron Corporation (Oddly, the two dissenting justices were Gorsuch and Kavanaugh). This decision is proof that the money changers own the supreme court in addition to the other branches of government.

They are not pretending that we live in a democracy with justice for all anymore, the absolute law of the land is that if you are going to score a win against the moneyed elite, they will destroy you.

Republican Rep. James Comer of Kentucky said Monday that investigators with the House Oversight Committee identified six more members of the Biden family involved in what he called “shady” transactions.

“I have had staff there over the past two weeks. There are thousands of pages of documents relating to financial transactions,” Comer told Fox Business host and former Trump administration official Larry Kudlow. “Let me be very clear, this isn’t just about the president’s son or the president’s brother.”

“We’ve identified six new Biden family members involved in shady foreign transactions, that we believe were a direct result of influence peddling that brings the number of Biden family members now to nine that were involved in the Biden family influence peddling,” Comer continued.

If you send out Christmas cards with the entire family brandishing assault rifles, you are a moron. If you are a constituent of these people, you are a moron.

He also said in 1963 that "the white liberal politician was the most deceitful & only use the Black Americans as a politicsl puppets..." he had alot to say about all politicians but the Liberal especially bc of the lies, promises made never kept. Still DNC SOP to this day
