There’s nothing Democrats hate more than a black conservative who thinks for themselves. Especially if they are successful and in a position of power like Clarence Thomas.
But it’s gone too far now as Clarence Thomas was attacked on CNN in this most egregious way.
Anita Hill, the woman who falsely accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his 1991 confirmation hearings, was recently interviewed by CNN host Chris Wallace, who commiserated with her over how the unfounded claims failed to torpedo his nomination.
Wallace charged Thomas for “playing the race card” in responding to Hill’s attacks.
“Right. Okay. Well, Clarence Thomas responded, and I think it’s fair to say that he played the race card, and he played it hard. Again, take a look,” Wallace began.
During the proceedings, Thomas accused Senator Joe Biden and other Democrats of carrying out a “high-tech lynching for uppity blacks.”
“This is a circus, a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves,” Thomas said back in 1991.
Hill retaliated by punching Thomas and accusing him of attempting to assault a black woman.
“Well there are two things with Thomas, it was the idea that he could play the race card as the victim against a black woman who well, you know, came from the same history whose family had been threatened with lynching,” Hill said.
“Real lynching, not high tech lynching, whatever that was supposed to mean,” Hill remarked, “and that he could be successful.”
Wallace expressed sympathy for Hill and described the hearings as a cultural benchmark.
He also claimed that Hill was the victim because the Senate subsequently confirmed Thomas by a vote of 52 to 48.
“But what struck in addition to that, what struck millions of people who were riveted to the television, and I can’t overstate what a big cultural event this was, was the way you were treated by the 14 white men, Republicans and Democrats,” Wallace added.
Hill’s charges sparked a 30-year smear campaign against Clarence Thomas that is still going on today.
The latest round of attacks on Justice Thomas involves Democrats accusing his wife Ginni of treason because she persuaded President Trump to contest the 2020 election results.
CNN is now attempting to assist Anita Hill in retconning her attempt to derail Thomas’ appointment to the Supreme Court by rewriting history to portray her as the aggrieved party.
