Black Conservatives Need Not Apply?
Those at the Smithsonian's new African American museum who chose to ignore one of our most honored and accomplished African Americans must hear our concerns and address the inexplicable snub of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Phone #: (202) 633-1000
Thomas has fought for equal rights his entire career, including as Chair of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission before being appointed to the highest court in the land. To ignore his good work is to censor his good work.
It's rhetorical to ask why this most influential conservative was snubbed, but let's ask anyway. Our silence is complicity.
- Sarah Palin
Yeah gee why would a guy who was accused of sexually harassing his female employee during his confirmation to the Supreme Court, spent his time in the court as Antonin Scalia's butt boy, and actually voted to strike down the Voting Rights Act of 1965, NOT have a place of prominence within a museum celebrating civil rights?
Yep that one's a puzzler alright.
P.S. By the way it's not exactly true that Clarence Thomas is not mentioned in the museum.
See, his name is right here on the plaque honoring Anita Hill.
But is that enough for Sarah Palin? Nooooo.
