The Washington Post Slams Black SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas, Says His Rulings Are The ‘Thinking Of White Conservatives’
In a blatant display of hypocrisy, leftist rag The Washington Post has published a lengthy article concerning President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nomination process, slamming SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas and his previous rulings, claiming they “often resemble the thinking of White conservatives.”
“The article focused on House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn’s role in recommending a Supreme Court justice to succeed retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, homing on the South Carolina Democrat’s recommendation of J. Michelle Childs, a black federal judge in South Carolina who is a contender for Biden’s nomination,” a report from Newsmax says.
Here’s a quote from the piece:
Nobody that I’m aware of feels that opposing Clyburn’s nomination would be the wise thing to do,’ he said. ‘If you know that a person has been vetted by Jim Clyburn, you know that person won’t go to the court and end up being a Clarence Thomas,’ referring to the Black justice whose rulings often resemble the thinking of White conservatives
“The Washington Post report was rebuked by conservative and libertarian-leaning media outlets, including the National Review and Reason, which highlighted examples of left-wing bias against the black justice who was nominated by former President George H. W. Bush in 1991,” Newsmax reported.
This is journalism? Reporters @CleveWootson and @MariannaReports snidely identify Clarence Thomas — in a news story — as "the Black justice whose rulings often resemble the thinking of White conservatives." Why don't they just call him an Uncle Tom?https://t.co/5yvzO6Fv3c pic.twitter.com/8psN128xJk

Jeff Jacoby, who is a conservative op-ed writer for the Boston Globe, posted a tweet saying that The Washington Post reporters Wootson Jr. and Marianna Sotomayor “snidely identified” Thomas in the report, going on to ask, “Why don’t they just call him an Uncle Tom?”
The Washington Examiner attempted to contact Wootson, however they did not receive a response.
