Democrats have become completely detached from reality.
And they’re lashing out at anyone who opposes them.
Now one Super Bowl champion ripped the Left for what they said about Clarence Thomas.
The Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe V. Wade has sent the Democrats into a furor.
The abortion issue has now been returned to the states, but Democrats are behaving as if abortion has been banned outright across the country.
And the Supreme Court justice who has gotten the most vitriol since the ruling is Clarence Thomas, who has been on the Democrats’ target list for 40 years.
Congressman Burgess Owens of Utah, who won a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders in 1980-81, called out the Democrats’ spiteful attack against Thomas.
Owens said during a House Judiciary Committee hearing, “The leaked opinion and reversal of Roe v. Wade unleashed carefully planned attacks on pro-life organizations, violent protests, an assassination attempt, and a racially charged firestorm against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. But that is nothing new – Justice Thomas has been a target of the left for over 40 years. Instead of celebrating the second Black American on our nation’s highest court, they declared open season with vicious and racist attacks.”
Thomas was first attacked when he was a member of the Reagan administration, then the Democrats attempted to “Bork” him during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
Owens then called out prominent leftists who have attacked Thomas in the most despicable ways.
Owens explained, “Samuel L. Jackson called Justice Thomas ‘Uncle Clarence’ and tweeted that a ban on interracial marriage was next. Rep. Benny Thompson called Justice Thomas an ‘Uncle Tom,’ citing his support for voter ID and opposition to affirmative action. He stated that Justice Thomas ‘doesn’t like black people, he doesn’t like being black.’ I’m going to take a second to ‘repeat the line.’ Justice Thomas ‘doesn’t like black people, he doesn’t like being black.’”
The attacks on Thomas disprove the Democratic lie that they care about racial minorities, women, or any other “marginalized” group.
Democrats only care about people’s allegiance to the left; everything else is just a façade.
Owens added, “Roe v. Wade cost us 63 million innocent lives. Like the pro-slavery Dred Scott decision of 1857, it was flawed. Overturning Roe did not outlaw abortion or take away the Constitutional rights of Americans. It put the decision in each state – in the hands of We the People where it belongs. It is time to settle down. Time to take off your mask and show your faces, put down your stones and firebombs and through civil debate, convince us that you are right. My prediction. You have no clue. In the meantime, a Black Constitutionalist on the Supreme Court who stands with that decision should be revered, not ridiculed.”
Democrats believe abortion will be the catalyst to help them in the midterms, but polls suggest otherwise.
And their ugly attacks on Thomas won’t win them any support, either.
