The Dangerous and Unrelenting Extremism of Clarence Thomas

The Dangerous and Unrelenting Extremism of Clarence Thomas

Bill Blum

Do Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices get more liberal as they age? A formidable body of academic research suggests that they do. This idea offers a sliver of comfort to those alarmed by Donald Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the nation’s most powerful judicial body, as well as by the even more disturbing prospect that if Trump is reelected, he may get to place additional conservatives on the court.

Oh hmmm Clarence Thomas----remembered for being the 2nd black man appointed to the Supreme Court. AND---------being so fixated on women and big breasts, sex with animals , and porn—and the Name of Long Dong Silver.
But mostly, he’ll be remembered for harassing Anita Hill, and finding a “public hair on his coke can.” Geez creep, maybe one of your nose hairs fell in. :slight_smile:
It’s things like this that make me refer to it as the Sub Prime court–and it just keeps getting worse. : (

When the brain has become calcified from lack of use, dogma is the only resort. Being ashamed of our inheritance renders us even more rigid than we would otherwise evolve. Finally, having no religion but purely egoistic self-adoration, encapsulates the whole being in puritanical self-rightiousness against the world. One isn’t insane, suggests the view from inside; the whole outside world is.

Impeachment of officials for manifest malfeasance in high office is certainly a Constitutional Congressional duty.

A very dishonorable human being.

Thomas is best known as an inflexible right-wing “originalist.” In its current iteration, originalism asserts that the Constitution should be read according to the meaning it had for the Founding Fathers rather than as a “living” document that should be interpreted not only in light of its text but also in light of contemporary values and evolving traditions.

I guess that means Thomas thinks he is just 3/5 of a man.

I’ll tell you what a dangerous and unrelenting extremism is, the nightmare of Russiagate of which Mr. Blum is a promoter.
