Old Stephen demands that freeman Django gets off that horse

The Washington Post stages a Mandingo fight between Clarence Thomas and Colbert I. King:

To argue Justice Thomas will take revenge on lifelong racist Joe Biden for leading Democrats in their infamous attempt to lynch him is what perpetually outraged liberal whites usually denounce as a “new low.” But there are no new lows on the left. They have inhabited the sewers of political culture for decades.

    If Clarence Thomas should recuse himself coz Joe Biden treated him like shit … then shouldn’t Brett Kavanaugh recuse as well (coz Kamala Harris treated him like shit)?

    Remember the good ole days when voters got to decide an election?

    A terrible shame that the US has come to this.

    State of the Union? Extremely fragile.

    These same people didn’t demand Ginsburg recuse herself from the Obergefell homosexual marriage case despite her having had previously performed a homosexual wedding ceremony (see https://time.com/3883236/ruth-bader-ginsburg-gay-wedding/ source only). If she had been a proper judge and not a political player and if she had any integrity at all she would have… I’m not okay with speaking ill of the dead, but I think reasonable people can make up their mind about a judges character when they behave in this way.
    On the other hand, there’s no legal reason here as to why Justice Clarence should recuse himself.

    More like state of the Onion – makes the eyes water – and painful to see.

    Why bother to have a supreme court at all then? They could just go back to trial by combat. Think of the entertainment possibilities – bread and circuses for the massess.

    Most would call it karma.

    Imagine the day in court:

    Thomas: So we meet again …
    Biden: Well now, I’all didn’t mean any of those nasty words or insinuations I made …

    Karma or petard hoisting. Utterly delish!!

  9. cuckoo

    Have I got this straight? Uppity nigra can’t be trusted to behave hisself towards the white man who tried to lynch him?

  10. JC

    How about Hiden recuse himself entirely from the election. He has informally anyway.

  11. Up The Workers!

    If the racist Biden treated a black Judge like shit, then shouldn’t it be Biden who recuses himself from the Presidential race, rather than his vilified victim – or even the Dementiacrats who pull their senile, racist, fossilised paedo’s endorsement to run for the Presidency?

  12. a happy little debunker

    In these intense halcyon days of BLM – shouldn’t it be Biden recusing himself from service where the supreme court has to decide the election outcome?

    The Taney Court, 1836-1864

    Two days later the Justices began to deliver eight separate opinions. The majority ruled that Scott was still a slave. Three, including Taney, said no Negro, even if free, could hold citizenship in the United States.
    And for the first time since 1803, the Court held an Act of Congress null and void. Under the Constitution, it announced, Congress had no power to limit the expansion of slavery by law, as the Missouri Compromise of 1820 had done.

    Chief Justice Taney administered the oath of office to Lincoln on March 4, 1861, and heard him disclaim “any assault upon the Court.” But Lincoln warned solemnly: “if the policy of the Government, upon vital questions affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation . . . the people will have ceased to be their own rulers. . . .”

    Biden made his bed and now he can sleep in it.

    I am sure Mr Justice Thomas would treat this case in a proper judicial and legal manner and not let the his personal feelings for Biden influence his decision ,which would be as fair and just as you would expect from any impartial judge . Not all people are dishonest nasty crooks like the decromats .

    Scalia’s dissent from Obergefell:

    So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.

    The only reason Biden is allowing himself to be used as a Trojan horse for the communist American left is his unquenchable lust for money and power. You know, the thing.

    Supported by the gutter press — especially the Washington Post — which is now a fawning bumboy for the corrupt Washington establishment.

    Wapost hasn’t been a speaker of truth to power for 30 years.

    Brilliant strategy by the Democrats.

    Maul Republican nominees to the supreme court, be as savage as you will. Meanwhile they do not raise to the bait but remain restrained and calm.

    Then when something comes up the vicious one complains that the one able to maintain their detachment will be hell bent on revenge.

    This way they can make sure they only ever have Democrat justices adjudicating matters involving them.

    That speech to the confirmation committee was a masterpiece in calling out the Dimocrat bullshit.
    Worth repeating:-

    ” … “a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.”

    I didn’t realise Sleepy Joe was chair of the committee.
    Probably because he was busy looking at his shows by the time Thomas had finished.

    The End of Democracy? The Judicial Usurpation of Politics

    First Things November 1996

    This issue of the magazine caused a deep rift between conservatives, with such luminaries as Gertrude Himmelfarb resigning from the board over it. Neuhaus and Co. were about a decade ahead of their time.

    Opinion: Washington Post should recuse itself on anything backed by facts, logic and reason. Oops, too late, they already have!

  22. wozzup

    The problem with the Left (well, one problem among a plethora) is that they cannot conceive of what it is like to be an actual, proper Judge. That is, one who applies the law. Rather than one who applies personal ideology backed by political malice.

    When the standards of their overseas colleagues include killing 100 million people* every deception and fraud looks to them like benevolence.

    *Chillingly, no-one actually knows how many to the nearest 50 million. Two times the Australian population might/might not have been killed. What cares a leftist? Ask Walter Duranty at the New York Times.

  24. To argue Justice Thomas will take revenge on lifelong racist Joe Biden for leading Democrats in their infamous attempt to lynch him is what perpetually outraged liberal whites usually denounce as a “new low.”

    He should do it.

    It would be justice, not revenge.

    Consider it karmic justice. Biden may find what he is looking for!

  25. Crossie

    Lefties always think others should recuse themselves to make sure they are not made to pay for their sins, I rather like the concept of comeuppance. It should be up to Justice Thomas whether to be magnanimous or vengeful should the opportunity present itself. I hope Trump wins outright and we are all spared Biden’s nastiness.
