The Angriest Justice?

In his autobiography Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas does not recall his Senate confirmation hearings with much fondness. Remember Anita Hill and her uncorraborated accusations against Thomas for boorish behavior?

At the time, Thomas called the attempt to derail his nomination a "high-tech lynching."

It was, at the very least, a well-documented conspiracy to commit character assassination.

The NYT's editorial page staff is alarmed that Thomas would recall his anger at being subjected to such a low and dirty campaign, one that was egged on by the Times itself.

It now says, Thomas should recuse himself from cases that involve the groups that sought to trash him personally to prevent his ascension to the court.

The NYT Editorial Page might want to think about recusing itself from weighing in on matters its writers feel so passionately about. Especially, when it comes to conservative black men about whom they have lost all sense of fairness or balance.

Those who know Thomas portray him to be a different sort of fellow from the one the Times editorialists and others seem to despise so much.

Clearly Liberal hatred for everything Right transcends even their blind devotion to blacks as eternal victims. And any black individual who dares to think for themselves and fails to follow the Lib prescribed line gets ostracized and intellectually lynched by them. So much for all that “tolerance” and “diversity” the Lefties are always chirping about. Liars. The truth is they are the most intolerant of all of anyone who disagrees with them.

T-shirt: “Liberals, caring about blacks since about 1964.”

Gil, you are truly despicable. You did the same thing to Mark Sereni, who as anyone who knows him knows, is so much better than the man you made him out to be, and at least ten times the man you are.

Mark Sereni's problems were created not by things I alleged he said. His problems were caused by things he actually did say, wrote, and threatened.

I look forward to reading his autobiography if he should ever write one.

And, of course, the autobiography written by his Anonymous and brave admirer as well.
