Who remembers the Clarance Thomas confirmation hearings where a committee of old white guys gave him a high tech lynching? I remember-I will NEVER forget!
Andrew Breitbart’s road from liberalism to conservatism began with those hearings:
“Andrew’s conversion to conservatism began with the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. He saw the overt and blatant hypocrisy of former KKK’er Robert Byrd and womanizer Teddy Kennedy shamelessly grilling a black Clarence Thomas about minutiae that, even if all true, were no reason to deny him a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Andrew’s eyes were opened to the real agenda of the NAACP, ABC, NBC, and CBS. His sympathy for Clarence Thomas was “utter and complete.” Thus began the transformation of Andrew from liberal to conservative.”
I was on the road to conservatism a few years before the attack on Thomas; but it was still was an eye opener.
It only confirmed what i was beginning to see as the truth. Breitbart had his epiphany thanks to Clarance Thomas and the courage it took to stand up to the weasels going after him.
The appointment of Clarance Thomas SHOULD have been celebrated. He was the first black ever appointed to the Supreme Court and so far the ONLY black ever appointed to the Supreme Court. IMHO a bigger deal than Obama getting elected.
You have to know that if you are a black conservative you will have all sorts of racist slurs thrown at you:
uncle tom,sell out, house ‘negro’ and worse.The bizarre part of ppl calling blacks these racist slurs is that nobody believes they are racist slurs. They don’t get called out for it. Thomas was accused by one person of rape and the country went nutz.She had to be telling the truth.She ( will not mention her name) happened to show up at the right time and she also vanished after he was confirmed. Nobody questioned her story.The Democrats at his trial-i mean hearing-didn’t question it. They were even going through Thomas garbage at his home [ private property ]literally trying to dig up dirt on him.Trust me,Planned Parenthood and NOW were both behind this assault on a good and decent man.
Let’s have ZO speak to it: He had this one thrown at him, “”Look at this uncle tom ass n* word, bein’ smart and not breakin’ laws and shit”. Zo’s a good decent man; proud of his race.He’s the last person i’d accuse of shmoozing up to white people and selling out blacks.
Let’s have ZO cover some history too:
So let’s be honest. When racial slurs are thrown at black conservatives they’re not considered racist slurs.
Why is that?
I didn’t vote for Obama.In fact,i wasn’t crazy about the Republican nominees but i was less crazy about Obama.
You have to know that automatically makes me racist. You know why that is? It’s because the Democratic party and the Obama operatives hoped that would work. Hillary is going to try the same play book;except this time it’s going to be that i want to oppress women. Not very likely since i am a woman.Ok,i’m one of those crazy Catholic women. Crazy Catholic women want to oppress women.
