Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is so angry over the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby contraception case last week that he apparently forgot Justice Clarence Thomas is black.

The Nevada Democrat lamented the court’s ruling which allows Hobby Lobby and other for-profit companies with religious objections to certain forms of contraception to avoid providing them to employees in health insurance plans mandated under Obamacare.

Hobby Lobby approves of 16 out of 20 forms of contraception that have been approved by the FDA.

“People are going to have to walk down here and vote, and if they vote with the five men on the Supreme Court, I think it’s — they’re going to have — be treated unfavorably come November with the elections,” Reid told reporters on Tuesday, according to ABC.

Hopalong Harry Highcheekbones has convinced himself that he’s a redskin and is “offended” and “outraged” by the Washington football team.

You can’t be really black unless you’re a Dem.

have not seen anyone accuse Dingy of being too bright in recent years.

A motor mouth, of course. Diarrhea of the mouth is a permanent disease with democrats.

They really do not seem to care what spews out, just so they spew something..................

Black conservatives lose their minority status in the eyes of liberals.

Guess Joe Biden wasn’t there to say “Stand up Clarence” so Harry could see.

i think a critical point that must be stressed at every opportunity:

the liberals in charge are throwing batshit fits about the end of the world when some company is complying with 80% of them on an issue.

they get % of what they want, and they’re in hysterics painting it like 0%.

this is hyper-totalitarianism. this is zero tolerance madness.

Like Cochran, some of it’s gotta be senile dementia. I dunno about term limits, but Hairy’s a walking argument for retiring before you find yourself fighting an involuntary commitment.
He’s already nosing around the Bundy ranch again. Prolly sees there’s money to be made & can’t leave it alone, the POS.

The Left thinks that all conservatives are White by default as they believe that the term White is a “social construct” that minorities can belong to as well if they adopt conservatives political views or opinions. I kid you not.
