Supreme Court WTF?!

Clarence Thomas Gets Ripped A New One For Whining About The Court Being ‘Compromised’ By Liberals

Has there ever been a more useless member of the United States Supreme Court than Clarence Thomas? After all, this is the same man who allegedly engaged in blatant sexual harassment and yet still got a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land simply because he whined about being subjected to a “high-tech lynching” when the evidence certainly supported what Anita Hill told the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding years of improper remarks and actions by Thomas when the two were working at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

And now Justice Thomas wants to lecture us all on the possibility of making changes to the highest court in the land (such as adding more justices or putting term limits on SCOTUS members), suggesting that such moves would result in the court being “compromised.”

Speaking on Friday at a foundation started by former right-wing Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Thomas declared:

“You can cavalierly talk about packing or stacking the court. You can cavalierly talk about doing this or doing that. At some point the institution is going to be compromised. By doing this, you continue to chip away at the respect of the institutions that the next generation is going to need if they’re going to have civil society.”

Compromised? That’s rich coming from the most compromised member of the Supreme Court in the history of the United States.

Consider that Thomas’s wife, Ginni, has worked on behalf of groups and issues that have come before the court over the years her husband has been a SCOTUS justice.

As Jon Skolnik of Salon wrote this week:

Last month, The New York Times reported that the Thomases have “defied” the ethical norms of the Supreme Court, detailing, most notably, Ginni Thomas’ role in a failed scheme to illegitimately reinstall Donald Trump as president in the 2020 election. In her work with the conservative Council for National Policy, the outlet reported, Ginni Thomas helped draft and circulate “action steps” pressuring Republican state lawmakers to replace their state electors with partisan pro-Trump appointees. 

Or how about this blatant conflict of interest that Justice Thomas engaged in when it came to one of the most important cases the Supreme Court has heard since the Nixon tapes:

In January, Clarence Thomas stood firm as the lone dissenter in Trump v. Thompson, voting against allowing the January 6 selection committee to access president records from the Trump White House in their investigation of the Capitol riot. That decision came just a month after the panel was attacked in an open letter by Ginni Thomas, who in December called on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to expel Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., from the House Republican Caucus over their roles in the probe. 

And now Clarence Thomas wants to lecture us on how liberals and others he disagrees with could leave the court “compromised”? That was all it took for Twitter users to tell Justice Thomas to take a seat and shut his damn mouth.
