The Character of Clarence Thomas
Clarence Thomas has been attacked viciously since the overturn of Roe. What does he truly believe, and how does he feel about these attacks?
From WORLD. The ferocity of attacks against Justice Clarence Thomas in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision exposes liberal bigotry against any black person who dares to question progressive dogma….
One of the main themes that Justice Thomas has sought to undermine in his writings—the idea that one’s skin color must determine their politics—keeps popping up and it must be refuted.
When it comes to controversial moral and political matters, progressives permit white people to be taken as individuals. They are allowed to think whatever they want without being expelled from their race by complete strangers on social media. Diversity of viewpoint and perspective among whites is expected, even if it is not always welcomed. Blacks, on the other hand, get accused of race traitorship by white people if they don’t march in lockstep with the most radical progressive dogma.
Of course, the current wave of hatred is driven by the fanatical progressive devotion to continuing the racist, eugenic practice of completely unrestricted elective abortion in the United States….
Today, whether or not you agree with his decisions as a member of the Supreme Court, he has without a doubt proven himself a principled and gracious justice. He’s maintained friendly relationships with ideological opponents such as the late Justice Ginsburg, walking her down the steps at the end of each day. His opinions have been consistent, restrained, and well-reasoned….
But right now, the loudest voices seem to express hatred toward Clarence Thomas. Perhaps this is because, through his hard work and perseverance, he has risen to a place of power that most of them can only fantasize about. A place they feel he should only be allowed to occupy if he does exactly what they want.
But tellingly, I don’t think Justice Thomas hates them back. I don’t know the justice personally, but those who do tell me confidently that he pays no attention to the nonsense and is concerned most with doing his job and doing it well. And those of us devoted to serving women and families facing unplanned pregnancies intend to follow his very good example.
