President Biden has been on the wrong side of political issues for over 45 years.
Biden, who was chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, during the 1991 confirmation hearings, is seen grilling Thomas about “natural law” before Thomas is seen weighing in on the experience via an interview for the movie.
“I have no idea what he was talking about,” says Thomas in the film, called Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words. “One of the things you do in hearings, is you have to sit there and look attentively at people you know have no idea what they’re talking about.”
Following is a video, of then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas responding to what he deemed, was the motivation behind the committee’s bogus testimony from Anita Hill, calling his nomination hearing “a high-tech lynching.”
Fast forward to 2022 and now U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Thomas, the most senior justice on the nine-member court, says he’s worried about efforts to politicize the court or add additional justices.
Speaking Friday in Utah at an event hosted by former Republican U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch’s foundation, Justice Thomas slams cancel culture, ‘packing’ Supreme Court.
Justice Thomas said he is concerned about the efforts to politicize the court or add additional justices may erode the institution’s credibility.
As he has shared in other public appearances, Thomas says he worries about the long-term repercussions of trends such as “cancel culture” and a lack of civil debate.
“You can cavalierly talk about packing or stacking the court. You can cavalierly talk about doing this or doing that. At some point the institution is going to be compromised,” he told an audience of about 500 people at an upscale hotel in Salt Lake City.
“By doing this, you continue to chip away at the respect of the institutions that the next generation is going to need if they’re going to have civil society,” Thomas said.
2022 will be historical for the SCOTUS as the 9 justices will be issuing rulings on the constitutionality of controversial legislation covering issues such as abortion, guns, and voting rights.
Millions of Americans are especially waiting for their ruling on; Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and whether Mississippi can ban abortions at 15 weeks.
In case of a somewhat expected, pro-life ruling of this case, Florida, West Virginia, and Kentucky lawmakers are already advancing similar legislation hoping the court overturns Roe and establishes new precedent.
The court has moved for conservatives following the confirmation of 3 justices nominated by former President Donald Trump. In a sign of panic, trying to rapidly change the dynamic of the court, progressives have increased their call to expand the number of justices on the court, even being debated during the Democratic Presidential debates.
Far-left Democrats in Congress even introduced a bill last year to add four justices to the bench, and President Joe Biden has convened a commission to study expanding the court.
“I’m afraid, particularly in this world of cancel culture attack, I don’t know where you’re going to learn to engage as we did when I grew up,” he said. “If you don’t learn at that level in high school, in grammar school, in your neighborhood, or in civic organizations, then how do you have it when you’re making decisions in government, in the legislature, or in the courts?”
In addition to condemning the “cancel culture,” Thomas also blasted the media for cultivating inaccurate impressions about public figures — including himself, his wife, and late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Justice Thomas has been one of the most influential and consistent conservatives on the Supreme Court.
His successful career, especially as a black American who was raised in the segregated south, who was mistreated during his confirmation process, yet stayed true to the constitution not letting his past influence his rulings, should serve as a model for WOKE, “people of color”, for generations to come.
