Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is under siege from the left.
He’s been the target of endless media hit-pieces.
And Thomas was just hit with one jaw-dropping threat.
The left seeks to destroy any institution they do not control.
That’s why the left’s attitude toward the Supreme Court flipped overnight.
When Democrats were able to cram through policy that stalled in Congress with a 5-4 Supreme Court verdict, they loved the high court.
But ever since Donald Trump got three Supreme Court appointees, Democrats have relentlessly attacked the court.
Democrat megadonors bankrolled a stream of hit pieces against Clarence Thomas via the left-wing publication ProPublica.
In light of the smears, the Supreme Court announced a new code of ethics to quell the media-orchestrated heat.
But the threats against Thomas and the court have not stopped.
Congressman Jamie Raskin doubled-down during an appearance on CNN when discussing Trump’s January 6th case potentially going to the Supreme Court.
Host Dana Bash asked, “Three of the sitting justices were appointed by Donald Trump and in addition to that, justice Clarence Thomas’ wife, Ginny, texted with Mark Meadows about the 2020 election in the lead-up to January 6th, as you well know. Should any of the justices recuse themselves if they take this up?”
This is an absurd standard, but the Democrats want the idea floating around that the court is illegitimate if it does not return a verdict they want.
Raskin responded, “Well, finally, the Supreme Court has developed what they’re describing as a code of ethics. It’s not binding in the sense that they’re not going to anyone else. They could have gone to for example, circuit court justices, you could’ve gone to state supreme court justices on a panel, but so they’re- they’re deciding for themselves, again, whether they’re in violation of their code of ethics. But I think anybody looking at this in any kind of dispassionate, reasonable way would say, if your wife was involved in the Big Lie, in claiming that Donald Trump had actually won the presidential election and had been agitating for that and participating in the events leading up to January 6th, that you shouldn’t be participating in …”
“So he should recuse himself?” Bash interjected.
“Oh, [Thomas] should absolutely recuse himself. The question is, what do we do if he doesn’t recuse himself?” Raskin replied.
After the confirmations of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer warned them that they “will pay the price!”

The constant persecution of Trump and his supporters is proof of just how far the Democrats are willing to go.
And they’ll take down the Supreme Court if necessary.
Senator Elizabeth Warren already said Democrats should pack the Supreme Court, and Congressman Adam Schiff is fundraising his Senate bid on court-packing.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats should ignore the Supreme Court altogether.
So, as long as Republicans have a 6-3 majority on the court, the Democrats will continue with their attacks.
