Not long after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold Obamacare, the
Left took to the web to trash Justice Clarence Thomas.
Justice Thomas signed on to the dissenting opinion along with
three other justices.
Justice Thomas is the only Black member on the bench, and his
disagreement with the majority of the court made him the target of
numerous racial slurs on the internet. Apparently, some on the Left
believe that the color of your skin should dictate your
interpretation of the Constitution.
Leftists on Twitter even said Thomas dissented because he
ishaving “identity problems” and that he is really only
“painted black” or has a “really good spray
Even though he stood up for what he believed was right, Justice
Thomas is being berated as a race-hater. He was accused of only

Federal Election Commission as well.
leftist rally, supporters were filmed making racial slurs. When
asked what should be done after Justice Thomas was impeached, one
man stated “put him back in the fields”.
The leftist protesters even went as far as calling for Justice
Thomas to be lynched. One woman said we should “
string him up” and another man said we should “hang
The blatant hypocrisy of these “peace-seeking” liberals is
astounding. One woman said that she was “all about peace” but
suggested “torture” as the punishment for the Court’s decision.
If a conservative ever made a similar comment directed at
President Obama, both liberals and conservatives would be outraged.
Where are the calls for “civility”? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al
I admire Justice Thomas for standing up for his beliefs. He
proved to me, once again, why he is one of my role models.
