GOP Lawmakers Call for Probe Into Possible 'Threats' Against Thomas, Scalia

Published March 03, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Several Republican members of Congress are calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate possible "threats" against conservative Supreme Court justices, claiming the advocacy group Common Cause is providing a platform for inflammatory rhetoric.

The congressmen, in a draft letter to Holder that has not yet been sent, allege that rallies held by the organization appear to "incite violence and encourage racial slurs," with Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Virginia being the targets.

The letter cited a newspaper report on a Common Cause rally at which protesters were quoted, in reference to Thomas, saying they should "string him up" and put him "back in the fields." Thomas is black.

"Possible"? They are either threats or not threats. There is no grey area here.

“Possible” because it’s based on a newspaper report rather than direct knowledge.

Or not.

“They’re not Holder’s people.”

That’s just it. Holder won’t do anything to protect a white conservative. He hopes they will be killed. Serves them right for not being black and crazy like him.

Justice Thomas has the correct light reflectivity index, but the incorrect political thoughts, so he’s not one of “Holder’s People.”

Pity. Guess he’ll just have to die, according the Holder Theory of Law Enforcement.

“’Possible’? They are either threats or not threats. There is no grey area here.”

Naturally, but of course news outlets don’t want to go out on any limbs without covering their a**es. Which is why a sticky, gooey layer of hemming, hawing, and obfuscating scum lies on top of their stories.

Wow, just wow! Holder is willing to stick his neck out for militant Black Groups citing racism and the struggle of “his people” but when conservative black SUPREME COURT JUDGE recieves threats to his life in the most racist of ways all we hear are crickets. HMMmmmm......

I’m sure Media Matters will be very concerned about this violent rhetoric.

The Supreme court is supposed to be shielded from all that. But the night Obama declared war on them, in his state of the Union, belittling them to their face, started the ball rolling.

Obama has practically made congress irrelevant, and now the judicial Supreme Court. Dictators do that.

Moron holder uttered the word “My People” and although Thomas is black and Scalia is white Thomas is NOT one of his people because he is not a thug so there is no need for moron holder to assist him in any way.

Thank you. The article at the top of this thread says it was based on a newspaper article. Seeing the proof on video is PROOF rather than allegation.
