Clarence Thomas Says We’re Selfish

Justice Thomas

Or, pot meet kettle.

In speech to 400 students at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, U.S. Supreme Court judge Clarence Thomas expressed his dim view of Americans:

“Our country and our principles are more important than our individual wants.”

Thomas next dared to bastardize the famous President Kennedy speech, “Ask not what your country can do for you,” and said Americans today are more likely to say, “Ask not what you can do for yourselves or your country but what your country can do for you.”

Curious sentiments from a man who got into college via Affirmative Action and once on the Federal bench, went on to write the fewest opinions of any of the Supreme Court justices.

    I wonder who Thomas thought his audience was as he made these remarks? Surely, not the students who will graduate and will not be able to find work thanks to the ravages of 8 years of Republican rule.

    Maybe he was speaking to the parents of the students who no doubt sacrificed and saved and went without in order to pay for their kids tuition?

  2. Brigadoon says:

    Not only did Clarence Thomas get into college via a spot held open for him from Affirmative Action, he’s gone onto give speeches characterizing Affirmative Action as “evil.” He’s a fucking hypocrite.

    You know, who clerked for Coke can Clarence?

    Ann Coulter. She adored him. Case closed.

    It’s not Clarence’s fault.. He had a pubic hair in his throat and the pube made those comments.

    He is the living argument AGAINST affirmative action.
