They say they care about the lives and legacies of ethnic minorities. What they really mean is that they care about ethnic minorities who hold the ‘correct’ ideas.
Why else would they permit the ‘cancelation’ of one of America’s most highly-accomplished black men in the middle of Black History Month? It’s a deliberate stick in the eye. They are sending a message: THIS man is not suitable for black people to regard as an example and a role model.
Ironically, he’s one of the very best of examples for young black men to look up to. Until the election of Obama as 44th President, Justice Thomas held the most powerful position of any black man in the American government. And if you look at his past? Yowsa! It’s practically a made-for-TV miniseries!
That must be why the Documentary about his life is being shafted. It wouldn’t be the FIRST time Clarence Thomas was subjected to a ‘high tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves.’
It was none other than Joe Biden overseeing that hearing. And now that he’s sitting behind the Resolute Desk, how fitting is it that the same buddies that helped conspire to drag his ancient carcass across the finish line last November are picking up with Justice Thomas pretty much where Senator Biden left off . . . that high-tech lynching has gone digital.
Recently, Amazon Prime dropped Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, an acclaimed and popular PBS documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas, making it unavailable to stream during Black History Month. Thomas is our nation’s only black justice currently serving on the U.S. Supreme Court, and one would think that between Amazon’s claim to “building an inclusive culture” and the fact that it’s Black History Month, Amazon would want to stream this inspiring documentary on its platform.
In fact, Amazon Prime created an entire Amplify Black Voices page on its site that “feature[s] a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month across four weekly themes (Black Love, Black Joy, Black History Makers, and Black Girl Magic).” There are scores of films available to stream, including four films available on the Amazon Prime site to stream (two docudramas and two documentaries) on Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, a liberal icon and our nation’s first black Supreme Court justice. There are even two films (one docudrama and one documentary) on Anita Hill, who came forward during Thomas’ confirmation hearing to claim that Thomas had sexually harassed her. (Hill’s story never added up and, and as reflected in a NY Times/CBS News poll after the Senate confirmation hearings, American men and women believed Thomas by a 2-1 margin.) — Breitbart
There’s a reason they would want to silence Thomas’s story.
He is a tremendous example, especially for young black men who feel disenfranchised, because he WAS once one of them. He grew up in a shack with dirt floors. He had a strained relationship with his father and was raised with his grandfather.
He was not accustomed to standard English, he was raised speaking a creole dialect common to African Americans called “Gullah”.
Thomas was admitted to the law schools at Yale, Harvard, and the University of Pennsylvania. He chose Yale because of the financial support it offered him as part of its affirmative action policy to attract students from racial and ethnic minorities. At Yale he continued to do well academically, and he appeared to fit in socially as well. Yet, years later, he described his “rage” and loneliness at feeling snubbed by white people who viewed him as someone who could only attend Yale through an affirmative action program. —NotableBiographies
But can he identify with the frustrations of young black activists today? Sure. Better than most, in fact. He grew up in the segregated South in one of the most turbulent periods in our history:
While Thomas had his sights on a career in the priesthood as a high school seminarian, his plans changed during his first year of college in a Benedictine seminary.
“The ’60s happened. I got filled with hate and anger, mostly over the race issue,” he said, recalling the 1968 assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy. “Cities were burning. And suddenly this nice kid turned into a demon, an angry black man.”
When he left college and “went home angry,” and with a liberal political bent, his grandfather kicked him out of his home, Thomas said. “So now, I’m a homeless kid. A homeless, angry kid.”
Always a good student, he soon became “a Holy Cross angry kid,” referring to the Jesuit-run college in Worcester, Mass., where he completed his undergraduate studies. “Holy Cross was great for me,” he said. —DukeLaw
Has he had to deal with systemic white racists?
Surprisingly, the KLAN and other white racists were not the greatest impediments to his career advancement
The movie reveals Thomas’s journey to becoming a conservative stalwart on the court.
“I felt as though in my life, I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me,” Thomas said. “We were told that ‘Oh it’s going to be the bigot in the pickup truck. It’s going be the Klansman. It’s going to be the rural sheriff.’ Ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern-day liberal. They were the ones who would discount all those things, because they have one issue, or because they have the authority, the power to caricature you.” —MetroVoiceNews
So why would they oppose such an inspiring and relevant success story as Justice Clarence Thomas?
Because, by his own life and example, he puts the lie to the very cornerstone of Liberal arguments for the Democrat agenda and Against the subversive ‘America is Evil’ campaign the left has been waging.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
