Justice Thomas Lashes Out in Memoir
Book Attacks Liberals and the Media, Breaks Near-Silence on Anita Hill
Justice Clarence Thomas settles scores in an angry and vivid forthcoming memoir, scathingly condemning the media, the Democratic senators who opposed his nomination to the Supreme Court, and the “mob” of liberal elites and activist groups that he says desecrated his life.
This from the Virginia Daily Press:
After 16 years of public silence on his bitter confirmation hearings, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas settles some scores in his forthcoming memoir, scathingly condemning the media, the Democratic senators who opposed his nomination and the “mob” of liberal elites and activist groups who he says desecrated his life.
This headline from the LA Times:
In book, Thomas lashes out at foes
The justice decries the media, Democrats who fought his nomination, and groups that he says used Anita Hill.
Now did you glean from those article headlines and ledes from the Ordinary Ministers of the Media that Justice Clarence Thomas’ book is about his relationship with his grandfather who raised him?
From those newspapers reviews you would expect to read a harsh Ann Coulter-ish screed against liberals which is not the case. I will never understand why the media hates Justice Clarence Thomas so much. Is it because he’s a black Conservative? A Catholic? Pro-Life?
I look forward to reading this book. I’m right now in the middle of reading Chesterton’s “Everlasting Man.” Imagine what the media would’ve said about Chesterton today?
