Far-Left Democrat Insults Justice Clarence Thomas; Says He "Proposes to be African-American" - Video Report 4/29/10
Democrat Eleanor Holmes-Norton has gone out of her way to insult Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The far-left Democrat said recently:
"We're not sure this president is ever going to nominate another African-American to the court. [Barack Obama]'s African-American. We've got someone who proposes to be African-American on the court."
So, I guess in Holmes-Norton's world, the only way to be a true African-American is to be a far-Left Democrat? What she said is insulting, and it reflects the attitude of many on the Left. Justice Thomas has served with great distinction on the Supreme Court, and has stayed true to his principles and convictions, rather than conforming to the liberal party-line. That has nothing to do with his race, and everything to do with his character.
