The radical Left is always accusing conservatives of racism.
But when it comes to black conservatives, the Left’s actual racism goes on full display.
And a black Congressman just called out the Left for their disgusting racist attacks on Clarence Thomas.
The Left’s Roe rage
When the Supreme Court handed down the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, the Left went ballistic.
There were mobs illegally protesting outside the homes of justices and even an assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Justice Clarence Thomas has become the target of racist attacks from leftists.
Speaking in a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee Representative Burgess Owens (R-UT), who is black, called the Left out over it.
“I see the same thing today in 2022 as the hard Left, the so-called ‘party of tolerance,’ who bang the drum of racism, inequality, inequity, do not practice what they preach,” he said.
Representative Owens shared several of the attacks against Clarence Thomas.
“Samuel L. Jackson called Justice Thomas ‘Uncle Clarence’ and tweeted that a ban on interracial marriage is next,” he said.
Of course, the idea that Clarence Thomas would oppose interracial marriage is absurd.
Clarence Thomas is married to a white woman.
“Uncle Clarence” is a reference to the racial slur “Uncle Tom,” which refers to a black person who is seen as “subservient to whites.”
There were so many leftists making racially charged Tweets about Clarence Thomas that “Uncle Clarence” was trending on Twitter.
Twitter also allowed “Uncle Tim” to trend for several hours after black Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) delivered the rebuttal to Biden’s State of the Union.
Representative Owens also called out fellow Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) for referring to Clarence Thomas as an “Uncle Tom” for supporting Voter ID.
The Leftist Lynch Mob
As Owens pointed out, Clarence Thomas “has been the target of the elitist Left for 40 years.”
A decade ago, at a rally for the left-wing organization Common Cause, white leftists were caught on video making appalling suggestions as to what they believe should happen to Clarence Thomas including “Put him back in the fields,” and “String him up.”
But it isn’t only Justice Thomas that has been the target of the Left’s racism.
Anytime a minority holds conservative values, they are viciously attacked.
“CNN suggested that Congresswoman Mayra Flores wasn’t the real deal,” Owens said. “They believed, and I quote, ‘she holds views outside Latino mainstream.’”
Finally, Owens mentioned the attacks that he himself has been subjected to as a black conservative.
He mentioned that a white satire cartoonist for a Utah newspaper once depicted Owens as a white Ku Klux Klan member.
Owens drew attention to the obvious double-standards, saying if the same attacks were launched against former President Barack Obama that “it would be called out by this committee and the media for exactly what it is: pure racism.”
The Left really thinks that they should get a pass on their racism.
We need more people like Representative Owens to call them out.
