The Democrats and their media comrades have no shame in going after their political opponents.
They will even go after family members of targets that they detest.
And Clarence Thomas was attacked by the left with one low blow that will make you sick.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been demonized by the Democrats for 40 years, ever since his days in the Reagan administration.
But the left’s hatred of Thomas does not stop with him – it extends to his wife Ginni.
According to MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson, Ginni Thomas helped form a “Voltron of evil,” a reference to a 1980s cartoon.
Johnson said, “I want this to be really clear. There has not been a more destructive force in the American jurisprudence in the last 30 years than Clarence Thomas’ wife. They’re the most destructive force in American jurisprudence. Those two together, they form like a Voltron of evil. Yesterday, the extent of just how thorough and intentional their efforts have been came into light in new reporting from Politico. And you won’t be surprised to hear that some of the key players involved included Texas billionaire Harlan Crow, Federalist Society Leonard Leo, and Trump political consultant Kellyanne Conway. Shocker! What Politico uncovered was that the justice’s wife was essentially running a political organization that will push conservative ideas through the courts and into her husband’s lap. The group called Liberty Central was set up while Barack Obama was President to target the Affordable Care Act and was launched just before the Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United which paved the way for unlimited dark money from groups like hers in our elections.”
Ginni Thomas’s “crime” was being a conservative.
The left wants to destroy any institution they do not control.
That’s why they have ramped up the attacks on Thomas, his wife, and other conservative members of the court.
Left-wing outlet ProPublica started the ball rolling with the attacks on Thomas.
Now POLITICO is picking up the ball and running with it.
Democrats are also attacking Leonard Leo and the Federalist Society, a think-tank devoted to nurturing conservative and libertarian jurists.
The left have a million different NGOs and think-tanks, but as soon as the right have an effective organization, it gets hit with a dubious investigation.
The intent is to delegitimize the court, establishing a predicate for ignoring Supreme Court rulings that the Democrats do not like.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has openly talked about employing such a strategy.
Senator Elizabeth Warren also pushed the idea of court-packing, a scheme that even Ruth Bader Ginsburg found distasteful.
The attacks aren’t just coming from the political sphere, either; Hollywood is getting in on the act.
Showtime is releasing a docuseries called Deadlocked, which attacks the conservatives on the Supreme Court.
During a trailer for the series, one of the interviewees commented, “The objective of the court was to use the Constitution as an engine of social change.”
That’s the fundamental problem with leftists.
Their goal is to morph institutions into vehicles for their political goals.
The Supreme Court’s job isn’t to be an “engine of social change.”
The high court is supposed to interpret the law as outlined in the Constitution.
Democrats no longer see the Supreme Court in that light, so they want to systematically undermine the court.
