MRS: Clarence Thomas: Tea Party Extraordinaire

March 14, 2010

Clarence Thomas, often referred to by Black folks as Uncle Thomas is perhaps the most unpopular Justice in the minds of many African American’s across the country, constantly measuring his “blackness” against his conservatism.

His card status gets even shakier when people realize his wife is a white woman, even though we know rationally that often one can’t help who they love.

From a 2007 60 Minutes profile:

He is the court’s only African American, and it’s most conservative member. He is arguably the most influential black man in the country, yet he is reviled by many in his own race for his opposition to government programs intended to help minorities.

He is often dismissed as a man of little accomplishment, an opportunistic black conservative who sold out his race, joined the Republican Party and was ultimately rewarded with an affirmative action appointment to the nation’s highest court, a sullen, intellectual lightweight so insecure he rarely opens his mouth in oral arguments.

As if Thomas’ conservative ways weren’t already under scrutiny, along comes an entirely uncharted dimension on the saga that is Clarence Thomas; his wife, Virginia Thomas.

Virginia Thomas, Ginni to her friends, has started a non-profit organization in support of the conservative Tea Party movement:

LibertyCentral.org is a non-profit, non-tax deductible organization which will have a user-friendly, entertaining, and educational website designed to provide an online community for visitors to preserve freedom and reaffirm the core founding principles.

Even though mainstream media likes to pretend the question of whether the Tea Partiers are racist is up in the air, those education on the movement know what “preserve freedom and reaffirm the core founding principles” means.  It means they perceive a power-shift in our country; one where non-white people have the ability to make change, despite systemic barriers previously set in place.  They fight change o any sort, not for the best interest of a nation, but to secure their own twisted, happy place at the expense of everyone else.

Reading Ginni’s bio on her website one experiences a mixture of giggles and horror at how she chooses to portray herself; for a moment, I thought I was being punk’d Yes Men style:

With 30 years of experience within the Washington beltway working alongside esteemed politicians like Dick Armey and for institutions like Hillsdale College, the Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Ginni is committed to serving as a clearinghouse for new and more effective online activism. Ginni, the ‘proud’ Nebraskan, is a fan of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham and other talk radio hosts. She is intrigued by Glenn Beck and listening carefully. She also enjoys motor homing and watching “24”.

Really?  I couldn’t make that up if I tried.

This woman is a fan of Rush Limbaugh?  The same racist who said that the President is a ‘halfrican American’, and an ‘affirmative action candidate?’

From the L.A. Times:

“I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with you and other people like you,” she said at a recent panel discussion with tea party leaders in Washington. Thomas went on to count herself among those energized into action by President Obama’s “hard-left agenda.”

Forget Sarah Palin people, this is the new star of the conservative movement.  Pretty soon Ginni Thomas is going to be all over the place- she’s the wife of a sitting Supreme Court Judge, for goodness sake.

The “conflict of interest” debate has already sparked, but this train is moving and won’t be stopped any time soon.  Ginni will simply refuse to talk about her husband’s work; she’ll maintain that this is “her thing”, and he has “his thing.  Clarence won’t say anything on the matter- he hates the media, blaming them for the unfavorable public perception about him.

And most important, the media will “question” whether or not Tea Partiers really are racist, because now here comes one who is married to a prominent African American; can a white woman married to a black man be racist against black people?

Yes.

    I find it alarming that you automatically believe all Tea Party supporters are racist. In fact, I believe by definition such statements are discriminatory, on their own.

    I am also alarmed that you do not understand what the Tea Party stands for — small, limited government; strengthening our Constitution which protects the freedoms and rights of black and white and brown and yellow people alike; removing the control of the for-profit central bankers who have literally purchased our government, as well as most other governments worldwide, via the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (the two economic arms of the United Nations). These are things that anyone in their right mind would support without batting an eye.

    The Tea Party is not an all-white party. I don’t know where you get your information from, but it’s flat out wrong.

    You’re probably assuming I am a Tea Party member or active supporter. I am not. I am a Libertarian — the party black people should be voting for because it represents all their best interests. In fact, it is blind to color and doesn’t care who you are, except that you are an American.

    Many Tea Party members are Libertarians, as well. Or black. Or any color.

    The only way beyond color is to transcend color. Be a living example of the change you wish to see in the world. That’s the only power you have as an individual to make real, lasting change in this lifetime. Test it, and find out.

    I think you’ll learn something here…

    Native Americans Against Obama (video)


    Obama supports (and has chosen to be a leader of) the United Nations Agenda 21, which seeks to ultimately make private property illegal, displacing millions of people and requiring them to live in metro areas due to manmade global warming (a claim which has no solid scientific backing). The planned land grab of 10 million acres in the West — including our San Juan Islands — by the Federal govt is part of this Agenda 21 plan. Agenda 21 is backed by 192 countries.
