When Glass Houses Shatter.

By Kay Daly

Extreme Liberal Democrats will never forgive Clarence Thomas for the cardinal sin of being conservative, black and a Supreme Court Justice.

To prove just how mad they are, for three decades now, they have sung the same old song.  Sometimes the tune varies a little, but the theme basically never changes and it always smacks of sour grapes and vengence.   Mostly, they look a little silly, but their latest scheme to tear down Justice Thomas reeks of hypocrisy but few if any media outlets have taken notice.

Twenty House Democrats took it upon themselves to seize upon Justice Thomas' accidental omission of his wife's employment at the Heritage Foundation An error which oops, the Heritage Foundation doesn't seem to be in on, because Mrs. Thomas was proudly listed as a staff member on their website, her articles hardly hidden from view, her participation in conferences and meetings well known to all.

Unlike 14 of the twenty House Democrats who went after Justice Thomas, whose own financial disclosure reports were riddled with errors and omissions and required resubmission.   14 out of 20.

A sample of three of these ethically challenged liberals includes :

 
·         Oregon Dem Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who issued a public statement to the media attacking Justice Thomas, failed to mention his wife’s income from 2006 through 2010.
·         Michigan Dem Rep. John Conyers Jr. made a mistake in listing his wife’s assets in his 2009 disclosure, and his wife Monica Conyers is serving a 37-month sentence for taking bribes in exchange for her votes on the Detroit City Council. 
·         Illinois Dem Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. had to correct his filings from 2004 through 2006.  Why?  Because, as he said in January 2009, it was  “due to a clerical oversight my previous financial disclosure statements inadvertently omitted information about my wife’s outside income.”

Another name on the list of twenty attacking Clarence Thomas?  Congressman Pete Stark, the wild Democrat from Fremont, California, who drops "F bombs" with ease, blamed Jewish colleagues for the Gulf War, accused all of Congressman J.C. Watts' children of being "born out of wedlock" and once called President Bush's HHS Secretary who happened to be black,  "a disgrace to his race".  Stark  seems to be the poster child for someone seriously in need of anger management therapy, given the evidence of several Stark anecdotes that point to a clear lack of stability and judgment. 

Even the San Francisco Chronicle said of Stark  "Only a politician who assumes he has a job for life could behave so badly on a semi-regular basis by spewing personalized invective that might get him punched in certain East Bay taverns. Would-be challengers sometimes sense a whiff of opportunity, but the reality of taking on a 16-term Democrat in solidly liberal terrain is nothing short of daunting. Surely there must be someone along the shoreline between Alameda and Fremont who could represent the good citizens of the district with class and dignity. It's not the case now."

This is who is trying to destroy Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his family?  Really? 

The other side of the story that the mainstream media doesn't seem to be talking about are the left of center individuals who are not agreeing with the hysterical liberal assessments made thus far of Thomas' financial affairs and career choices.  For example, Tom Goldstein, founder of ScotusBlog, a widely read blog on the Supreme Court; David Garrow, A professor at the University of Cambridge who is a self described liberal Democrat,; Richard L. Hasen, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine and; (this one will blow the socks off of most liberals) Retired Justice Stevens and Justice Breyer.   Can you imagine the uproar that would ensue if 14 ethically challenged House Republicans decided to take on a liberal justice?  Particularly if it had been an ongoing crusade for thirty years or so?  (These folks clearly need a hobby.)

Hold on, folks, it gets better.   Before Stark and his crew of 19 other House Democrats penned this  letter complaining about Justice Thomas' financial disclosure forms, guess who was leading the charge for the left against Clarence Thomas? 

Representative Anthony Weiner.

Sorry, may owe some of you a keyboard if you were taking a sip of a beverage.

    This is where I want to see a conservative with some serious gumption stand up and call on the 14 cosigners of this document who have done much the same thing to lead by example and step down from their positions immediately.

    When your sins are exposed and you have nowhere to hide—find somebody with character and tear ‘em down.

    People with no ethics, morals, and common sense somehow think they know how to educate those who do.

    Advice to the Democrats in question—shut the hell up.

    Clarence Thomas is the best judge on the bench. His views, judgments, and writings show an astute understanding of the US Constitution and a technical grasp of how the law is supposed to be.

    Shame on the DEMS….. Shame…. Shame… SHAME!

    Terrific article!  I confess my ignorance, but does it seem that, in general, the more liberal one is, the more intolerant he is and the greater likelihood that the person is devoid of morality and ethics and more willing to justify the ends by whatever means necessary?  In the extreme case you will find a Chavez or Castro of the “do it my way or die way.”  To a lesser extent, one only has to witness the treatment by the left of Judge Thomas going back to the initial hearings years ago.     

    Granted, not all liberals are this way.  Witness Juan Williams on Fox, and Senator Joe Lieberman.  Both are open-minded liberals and respect those with opposing views.  There certainly are other liberals, open-minded and willing to talk, but they seem few in number.

    And it’s not to say that such intolerance and win-at-all costs doesn’t exist on the right, as well.  But it seems that for the most part, the right in this country has grown beyond most vindictiveness and venom.  Perhaps the most obvious examples were the perpetrators of prejudice and racism; once many in number, but today few by comparison.  Who will forget how the “Right Wing” Fox came to the defense of Juan Williams after his own “Liberal Left” dumped on him.

    Clearly intolerance seems much more muted on the right side of the spectrum.  One has only to put the Tea Party side by side with the Occupy crowd and the differences are stark (no pun intended).

    Today, it seems that too often the right will turn it’s cheek and the left will simply slap the other side.  What better example than the present interaction between the President and Senate, and the House of Representatives.  Every bill passed by the House is collecting dust in the Senate, yet the President chastises the House for being obstacles to progress.

    Judge Thomas is an admirable American, exhibiting the best values of our traditions.  I respect him immensely.  What a disgrace the 20 democrats are for their repulsive behavior.  They’re not fit to represent this great country.

    The American public should be wising up to how the more extreme liberals in this country really feel about Americans , and particularly, those that refuse to drink the koolaid of their socialist policies. And, a conservative minority (Black or otherwise) or a conservative woman (like Palin or Bachmann) just drive them into a frenzy. They just cannot figure it out. Just wait and see how they are going to go after Herman Cain as he begins to catch on in the Republican primaries.

    Clarence Thomas has been in their crosshairs for years and it is amazing that he made it into the Supreme Court where he has done an outstanding job. If he were up for consideration today, he probably would not make it because of this hard over anti-conservative attitude that exists in Washington under Obama.

    The Democrats are going to have a hissyfit if Herman Cain ends up on the Republican slate for President or Vice-President. Can you imagine a conservative Black man running against the most liberal President in our history who is also “black”, in quotes, because he is half Black and not a traditional African American. The progressives will be going crazy because Cain may actually pull votes out of the Black and Hispanic communities if he runs.

    I love it. The liberals in this country are inherently racist, very intolerant to many Americans, pathetic hypocrites when it comes to true fairness with regard to many social issues, and the first to condemn any form of lawlessness and violence unless it is one of them doing it.

    I have developed a basic dislike of many because I can see the arrogance and intolerance thy have of those Americans not buying their baloney, and which I see as inherent in their attitudes and behavior toward others. As I said earlier, I hope that more and more Americans are beginning to see how these people will manipulate and mislead anyone they can get to vote or them.

    Judge Black is similar to Herman Cain in that they both followed the former American tradition of succeeding on your own merits and abilities as an individual. Their visible success flies in the face of blacks as victims and threatens the entire voting block of blacks and rabid feminists.  
     
    I read all the MSM play of Anita Hill’s accusations against Judge Black and their hints of his judicial incompetence, so I read his first published verdict and found it well reasoned and very clearly stated. To me this verdict was a better indication of the judge’s ability than the opinions of MSM reporters, so I put the Hill accusations in the same waste basket and became even more skeptical of media opinions and statements.
     
    When I worked in a dominantly black labor crew at the end of WWII, I was 16 and the other 16 year old was black. Age, at that moment of time, seemed to be a more unifying force than race and I was astounded at how accepting he was of the violent black world in which he lived where all the women went armed and he said: “You mess with a “N–” gal and she don’t want to be messed with – she just shoot you.” Coming from a community where there were no blacks his acceptance of sex and violence was a real eye opener, as well as the fact that most of the older blacks in the crew had felony convictions for some type of violent crime. Anyone who rises above that cesspool of violence and succeeds as an individual is someone to be admired and I have had the feeling in NYC that many blacks clerking in stores and occupying other normal beginning jobs have decided they are capable individuals rather than victims of discrimination against blacks, and as this is a nation founded to create opportunities for people as individuals, I thought it was a healthy and real change.
     
    However, the MSM has kept alive the thought that blacks are victims of discrimination, that they make their money in drugs and prostitution and that they are lazy and worthless, so obviously you as a black need government help to succeed.  Give me, the Democratic Party, your vote and I will look after you just like the “masta” did back on the old plantation. Don’t worry, if you fail to become a star athlete or rock star, you can always become a “flit livein boyfriend” living on your girl’s entitlement checks.
    Having blacks succeed as individuals threatens the entire card castle of blacks being victims of discrimination rather than their own failure to prepare themselves to succeed in a competitive world where if you can’t read, write and calculate the only jobs available are ones you won’t accept, but illegal immigrants will. The Democratic Party has created the black single mother who is trying to raise too many children in a still violent ghetto world. She is trapped and seemingly feels the only way out is to vote the way the local “community organizer” tells her to vote. The Arab world has its suicide bombers and we have our equivalent in black feminists accusing successful blacks who are Republicans of sexual harassment. This is playing the race card to an audience that has been conditioned to think of worst aspects of black culture, and the sad part is that it works and because it is successful it has now become a tool to be used in corporate America against males in general.

      um…i had the good fortune not to be raised quite so delicately as you. thus, i know that black people do not come from a cesspool of violence, yadda yadda, where women going armed is the norm. and black people that seem just like you and me aren’t black people who’ve decided they wanted something better for themselves, that’s just real black people.

      there are areas of this country, and of this world, that are more dangerous than others. but black people aren’t inherently more violent, asians aren’t inherently smarter, and the white race is a melange of pale people of all sorts of different actual ethnicities-and just by the way, race itself is a fiction. you need a reality check.

      erites, I can’t say that blacks aren’t more violent, but the fact is that in black areas there is more crime and violence the same goes for the majority of Africa. Violence is part of the culture they live in. 
       last night a black man in his early forties walked up to a 74 year old man and asked for money. the elderly mans said no and the 40 something man then beat him to death with a baseball bat inside Walmart.
       In the 1980′s if you were white you could not walk across LA City College campus without the possibility of being jumped and beaten. I have shirt with anti Obama message it has not been received well by the blacks where I live. 
       So this violence may not be hereditary but it is certainly part of their culture. like it or not.
       
      IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! ! ! ! !

    “This is where I want to see a conservative with some serious gumption stand up and call on the 14 cosigners of this document who have done much the same thing to lead by example and step down from their positions immediately.”

    okay. but what about the fact that Anthony Wiener, who broke no laws, DID resign, while there are Republicans who were caught breaking the law (David Vitter), who are still in office?

    erites, Vitter may have broken the law but was not caught doing so. The only connection they had was his phone number was on the prostitution service list. you ask about Vitter what about all the Democrats who have skated. What about Charles Rangel, Maxine Waters and the connection Pelosi has to money going to companies her husband has large shares of? If yo want to drop names drop them all. My list goes own how about yours?
    Oh let’s not forget the Tax cheat Obama put in charge of the Secretary of the treasury.
