Harry Reid Apparently Thinks Clarence Thomas Is White
The Daily Caller ^ | July 9, 2014 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 07/08/2014 10:43:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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.

The Senate will act soon to “ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” Reid added.

But his reference to “five white men” was off by 20 percent.

Only four of the male justices who sided with Hobby Lobby — John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy — are white. The other — Clarence Thomas — is black.....

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

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.

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.

Worse that that they believe that minorities can be White if they adopt conservative political views as they view the term White as a social construct.

Dingy Harry knew exactly what he was saying. Justice Thomas votes conservatively and Reid, like many small-minded and intolerant liberals, believes black men should not be conservative, so he called him white.

In that case, you can’t be White or male if you are not Republican.

So much for the FOUR BLACK WOMEN on the Supreme Court.

No, seriously, it’s amazing to me, first, that the Dinge hasn’t wound up in a hole somewhere in the north forty of Clark County, and second, that two such image-conscious institutions as the Democrats and the Mormon Church allow that sour old coot to be one of their major faces.

Racist (and sexist) straight up — and not just for mischaracterizing Justice Thomas, but speaking as if being male or white in and of itself is a bad thing.

The obligatory shoe-on-the-other-foot question has to be asked -

had a conservative mistaken - say Thurgood Marshall - for white, would that go unnoticed by the media and the left?

I agree.

Does he not realize he’s white and has a pair dangling?

I don’t want some old, squeaky voiced, turd speaking for me, thank you.

I am not helpless and even if helpless— I wouldn’t want such a wank on my team.

He’s racist, there is no doubt and he lives in an insulated world and he’s clueless.

He feeds his family political money so that they can live silly lives. He’s so far out of touch, it’s unreal.

Seriously, how he keeps being voted in makes me completely believe our votes don’t count—there can’t possibly be that many foolish people in Nevada. I am CERTAIN there are that many crooked, filthy, corrupt sorts to ensure they keep the gravy train running and therefore they must make sure Harry sits around up there at the Ritz?(or whatever that hotel penthouse he lives in)

Bearing False Witness: Reid is evil.

True on both accounts. He has had a lot of practice at bearing false witness, and being evil. I don't think a word of truth has come out of his mouth in decades. If he were to suddenly tell the truth, he would fall over and croak.

HE seems to be saying that only white men could possible oppose abortion, while blacks, of course, want all the babies dead.

Doesn’t this sound like a bizarre racist social-hygiene thing, when put that way?

For self hating, white guilt ridden liberals, it IS a bad thing. They are ashamed to be white. Why don't they just off themselves? We would never miss them. Years ago, I got my certificate from Ken Hamblin, officially absolving me of any residual white guilt, even though I really didn't have any.
