Profiles in Courage: Clarence Thomas

While some prominent black people prefer to engage in criminal behavior like crack cocaine-smoking sodomy, others show themselves to be true American patriots. A prime example of this is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Ever since his contentious 1991 confirmation hearing, he’s had to endure the slings and arrows of outraged racist moonbat media people. Case in point:

Two years and 144 cases have passed since Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas last spoke up at oral arguments. It is a period of unbroken silence that contrasts with the rest of the court’s unceasing inquiries.

Hardly a case goes by, including two appeals that were argued Monday, without eight justices peppering lawyers with questions. Oral arguments offer justices the chance to resolve nagging doubts about a case, probe its weaknesses or make a point to their colleagues.

Left, right and center, the justices ask and they ask and they ask. Sometimes they debate each other, leaving the lawyer at the podium helpless to jump in. “I think you’re handling these questions very well,” Chief Justice John Roberts quipped to a lawyer recently in the midst of one such exchange.

Leaning back in his leather chair, often looking up at the ceiling, Thomas takes it all in, but he never joins in.

Monday was no different. Thomas said nothing.

He occasionally leans to his right to share a comment or a laugh with Justice Stephen Breyer. Less often, he talks to Justice Anthony Kennedy, to his immediate left.

Thomas, characteristically, declined to comment for this article. But in the course of his publicity tour for his autobiography, “My Grandfather’s Son,” the 59-year-old justice discussed his reticence on the bench on several occasions.

The questions may be helpful to the others, Thomas said, but not to him.

“One thing I’ve demonstrated often in 16 years is you can do this job without asking a single question,” he told an adoring crowd at the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

The book tour showed that the topic comes up even among friendly audiences.

Indeed, Thomas’ comment was provoked by this question: Why do your colleagues ask so many questions?

His response: “I did not plant that question. That’s a fine question. When you figure out the answer, you let me know,” he said.

Thomas understands the nature of his work. He knows full well that the Supreme Court overreached its Constitutional authority back when it was run by Communists like Earl Warren and Thurgood Marshall, its overreach gaining unprecedented levels of anti-American totalitarianism at the ideological behest of worthless Trotskyite Micks like Brennan. Thomas, and Chief Justice Roberts, are doing their part to limit the Court’s role to its historic function: settling Constitutional disputes between the Legislature and the Executive, and correcting the overreach of lower Court that overlook the original intent of the Framers of the Constitution.

You know what makes anti-Thomas smear jobs like this one evern more ridiculous? Thomas has friends on the Left side of the Court who agree with him.

The typical hourlong argument session can sometimes be difficult, even for a practiced questioner.

“I really would like to hear what those reasons are without interruption from all of my colleagues,” Justice John Paul Stevens said at an argument in the fall.

Even a treefrog like Stevens wishes the Court would shut up and get to work. Why doesn’t he get a nasty article about him? Because the media agrees with his politics, that’s why.

In the past, the Georgia-born Thomas has chalked up his silence to his struggle as a teenager to master standard English after having grown up speaking Geechee, a kind of dialect that thrived among former slaves on the islands off the South Carolina, Georgia and Florida coasts.

He also has said he will ask a pertinent question if his colleagues don’t but sees no need to engage in the back-and-forth just to hear his own voice.

Lately, he has focused on the latter reason.

“If I think a question will help me decide a case, then I’ll ask that question,” he told C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb in October. “Otherwise, it’s not worth asking because it detracts from my job.”

He talked in that same interview about descriptions of him as the silent justice.

The racists are giving Thomas trouble because, despite the fact that he didn’t grow up in an English-speaking household, he’s trying to master English as a second language. I’ll take that over your English-refusing illegal alien any day; but to some in this country, foreigners who refuse to speak any language but the hodge-podge gobbledygook Satan taught their ancestors should receive more rights in this country than a hero like Thomas. Liberals are kooks; what do you expect?

Suppose surgeons started discussing the merits of removing a gallbladder while in the operating room, Thomas said, as quoted by U.S. News & World Report. “You really didn’t go in there to have a debate about gallbladder surgery,” he said. Similarly, “we are there to decide cases, not to engage in seminar discussions.”

Exactly. Shut up and do your job, Court. Nobody’s paying you to gesture emptily and hear yourselves think. We want speedy opinions pulling the law back in line with the Original intent, not a bunch of talky-talky Communists spewing Marxist vomit all over our hallowed documents and traditions. Thomas, like Scalia, Alito, and Roberts, is a true American hero for understanding all this. The media can crucify him for it, but he’ll continue to endure for many a year yet.

Please keep our America-loving Justices hale and healthy, Lord, and smite our infanticide-loving enemies with plagues during Republican Administrations.

  1. A brilliant post, Sisyphus! I never expect anything less than perfection from you. As far as Thomas goes he is one of the few negroes that take a stand for what is Right in this country. The racists who are out to get him are gold-toothed, crack smoking sodomites waving Obama signs and stealing cars.

    I support Thomas all the way!

    I’m sure the African American community would not appreciate your dry, racist remark. Also, you could just bastardize crack cocaine to coke to make things easier. I suggest this considering you refer to African Americans as black people.

    …but to some in this country, foreigners who refuse to speak any language but the hodge-podge gobbledygook Satan taught their ancestors should receive more rights in this country than a hero like Thomas. Liberals are kooks; what do you expect?

    Sie wissen, was? Leuten werden erlaubt, jede mögliche diese Sprache zu sprechen sie verdammen gefallen gut. Gerade weil sie in Amerika bedeuten nicht wohnen, daß sie nur zugegeben werden, englisch zu sprechen. Wenn jemand einen spanischsprechenden Haushalt herauskommt und aus sie werden angefordert, um Englisch wegen ihrer Schule oder Arbeit, dann, die zu erlernen annehmbarer als sein würden, ihre einzigartige Sprache Satanic benennend. Bitte nehmen Sie Ihre Bibel-humping Ideologien anderwohin. (Yeah, bad translation. I still gotta brush up on my German).

    Nobody’s paying you to gesture emptily and hear yourselves think.

    Hey, leave me out of this, will you?

    We want speedy opinions pulling the law back in line with the Original intent, not a bunch of talky-talky Communists spewing Marxist vomit all over our hallowed documents and traditions.

    And I’m sure you know exactly what goes on in court. If that was the case, then why don’t you pursue a career in becoming an attorney? Not only will you get to lie to people and make them feel like dirt, but you get paid for it as well.

    Please keep our America-loving Justices hale and healthy, Lord, and smite our infanticide-loving enemies with plagues during Republican Administrations.

    If such an event were to happen, one of the people he would smite is Mike Huckabee. Sure, he talks about doing things for god, but he is also insane. That isn’t something you can have in your precious cult now is it?

    The racists who are out to get him are gold-toothed, crack smoking sodomites waving Obama signs and stealing cars.

    Your racist slur makes me want to vomit in a baptist fountain. You don’t like Obama only because he isn’t a batshite insane, god-spamming moron like Huckasomething-or-other. Also, learn how to embed URL in your comments, Mr. Crockett. Either that, or get back into the kitchen.

    Hey moron, what do you think English is? You sure as hell don’t speak Aramaic or Latin, do you? You just insulted yourself.

    Also, Syphilis, you hate both the Constitution AND blacks, remember?

    Oh, and Gained-Crotchrot…

    You have no rights.

    So shut up and get back to the kitchen.

  7. The most hilarious thing about all this is that the liberal media’s lies aren’t really slander, to sane & rational people.

    Look at this:

    Two years and 144 cases have passed since Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas last spoke up at oral arguments. It is a period of unbroken silence that contrasts with the rest of the court’s unceasing inquiries.

    The fact of the matter is that judges aren’t supposed to be the creative type. Instead, they are to study the law how it is, and shut up and lay it down. That is why I favor removing the judicial branch as a branch of government. Clarence Thomas can help stop the study of the masturbation habits of old men.

  8. Thank you, Marica dear, for your kind reply. Unlike some people around here you have class and integrity. The smart alecks, and they know who they are, can just go straight to Hell where they belong.

    My best to you and Ralph.

    Thats like asking if they still burn women for being accused of being witches. Are all of the people who “agree” with this site this stupid?
    [Ed Note: Yes.]

    You’ve won my vote, Mrs. Gaines-Crockett.

    I believe you misspelled Mr. in your sentence. Oh shi-

    So stop pretending to have a penis.

    She doesn’t need to pretend to have something that she was already born with.

    You watch Fox Noise. Shut up, bobby.

    That is why I favor removing the judicial branch as a branch of government.

    You’re in the wrong country. Nazi Germany is that way (points to the right) about 70 years in the past.

    Unlike some people around here you have class and integrity.

    I request thee to post an image of your female pectorals or thou must leave the place which you came to.

    The smart alecks, and they know who they are, can just go straight to Hell where they belong.

    It’s spelled alacks, you stupid git.

  10. Sissyphus, I agree with all you have written. Clarence Thomas’s quiet and sober consideration of the important legal issues sets him apart from his fellows of SCOTUS who are more famous for their loud-mouths and liberal activism from the bench. If only we could have a few more like Thomas we wouldn’t be in today’s mess.

  11. Yes it is very easy to see that questions are NOT needed. Every case has an easy solution.

    For example, there is a liberal attempt to steal hard-earned money from widows and orphans who own Exxon-Mobil stock for some minor accident many years ago.

    This case is going to the court.

    No need for arguments, just find that Exxon is entitled to DAMAGEs from these horrible eco-terrorists, so that it can provide a better life for ALL True Americans.

  12. I think Clarance Thomas is doing the right thing as a judge. What questions are there to ask, a judge has a Bible, just open it and see what Jesus thinks of the matter.

  13. If only we could have a few more like Thomas we wouldn’t be in today’s mess.

    So you’re saying you want more African Americans in government? Done. Obama is on his way to presidency whether you like it or not.

    For example, there is a liberal attempt to steal hard-earned money from widows and orphans who own Exxon-Mobil stock for some minor accident many years ago.

    And you know about the persons political position how exactly? Also, how does an orphan go about having money? They’re in a homeless shelter for Raptor Jesus’ sake.

    No need for arguments, just find that Exxon is entitled to DAMAGEs from these horrible eco-terrorists, so that it can provide a better life for ALL True Americans.

    The real “eco-terrorists” are the ones that promote global warming and drive SUVs when an electric car could suffice as well, you empty-headed moron.

    A judge has a Bible, just open it and see what Jesus thinks of the matter.

    I’m sure any judge would prefer a book that contains actual facts and relevance to the law. Not every higher-up is a idiotic as Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee, you know.

  19. A judge has a Bible, just open it and see what Jesus thinks of the matter.

    Jesus thinks you should STFU and stop preaching about raping innocent children until they convert to Christianity.

    And before anyone tries to claim that I’m making this up, I took that from one of the right-wing fascists here. Corker linked to this: It’s okay for the President to request children have their testicles crushed.

    Proof of that: Comment #43.

  20. “Exxon the giant oil corporation appearing before the Supreme Court yesterday, had earned a profit of nearly $40 billion in 2006, the largest ever reported by a U.S. company — but that’s not what bothered Roberts. What bothered the chief justice was that Exxon was being ordered to pay $2.5 billion ..”

    “Several justices, however, seemed more concerned about the emotional distress of the Exxon executives. “I assume the test is the person has to be high enough that it justifies holding the entire corporation” responsible,” Antonin Scalia said, “and I doubt whether a captain is high enough.”

    Justice Anthony Kennedy, wagging his finger at Fisher as he challenged the lawyer’s argument, charged that “the corporation’s responsibility or complicity or culpability is simply not relevant under your theory of the case.”

    Roberts seemed the most agitated as he argued that Exxon wasn’t responsible for the captain’s unauthorized drunkenness. “I don’t see what more a corporation can do,” he said. “What more can the corporation do other than say ‘Here is our policies’ and try to implement them?” ”

    See! I knew the boys would come through. Now to crush the tree-fornicators!

  21. We say attack this race of people, they want to kill us. So we attack them. See the truth of the matter is that those people are known as “scape-goats” You see, we target a whole BUNCH of people who look the same to us, and we call them all baby rapists and devil worshippers, and blame them for all of our problems. We’ve gotten so good at it that now we can pick out our ten year scape-goat to fill an agenda. Kill two birds with one stone. We need oil? well who has oil? islamic people?!??? FUCKING KILL THOSE SATAN WORSHIPPING SWINE, IMA RUNNEM OVER IN MAH FORD TRUCK BUILT STRONG so they cant rape my babies, OHHHH YEAHHHH. It’s kinda funny when you realize that you cry genocide, then act out in THE EXACT FUCKING FASHION that YOUR IGNORANT, UNEDUCATED ass projects onto others. Freud would be so proud.
