“Clarence Thomas Hasn’t Said Shit In 5 Years”


No I’m not talking about the Grammy awards this morning but instead how Justice Clarence Thomas has managed to keep quiet in the last 5 years.

According to the New York Times when the Supreme Court returns from its midwinter break and hears arguments in two criminal cases, it will have been five years since Justice Clarence Thomas has spoken during a court argument.

Justice Thomas’s epic silence on the bench is just one part of his enigmatic and contradictory persona. He is guarded in public but gregarious in private.

He avoids elite universities but speaks frequently to students at regional and religious schools. In those settings, he rarely dwells on legal topics but is happy to discuss a favorite movie, like “Saving Private Ryan.”

Justice Thomas has given various and shifting reasons for declining to participate in oral arguments, the court’s most public ceremony; stating that, “he is self-conscious about the way he speaks.”

In his memoir, “My Grandfather’s Son,” he wrote “that he had been teased about the dialect he grew up speaking in rural Georgia.” “He never asked questions in college or law school and was intimidated by some fellow students.”

A late pastor of mine once said, “When you don’t want people to know how dumb or ignorant you are, you just don’t open your mouth, you keep silent”.

    Trained ‘house negroes’ usually don’t!!!! They obey ‘da massa’ and STFU!!!! Dude know what time it is.

  2. CT is a clown, therefore he feels out of place as a judge representing a high court. He would really feel better if he were back at the circus., where all CLOWNS belong.

      • He demonstrat­es the fact that he is also ethically unfit.

        You know what else? His appointmen­t is for life and there isn’t a damned thing that any of us, or even all of us, can do about it.

      • You know what else? His appointmen­t is for life

        Supreme Court justices should NOT be appointed for life! That’s the craziest idea ever IMO!

      • Supreme Court Judges should have a 10-15 years term limit. With the increasing life span we soon might have judges in their 90’s who have been in office for more than 40 odd years. Then we might need an Egyptian style revolt to get them to resign.

      • I agree, there should be term limits on the Supreme Court and Congress. There are far too many really OLD people that are WAY out of touch with reality and the American people, and they are to effectivel­y govern or make major decisions about our laws.

      • We are living longer, YES., but that does not mean it is a good thing that people can remain in government making important decision when they are 70+. Thomas should be impeached for failing to report his wacko wife’s income, supporting her right wing causes, attending the secret meeting with Koch Bros., passing Citizen’s United, which his wife benefits from extensivel­y with her new little pet organizati­on.

        It’s obvious that they are ‘getting over’ and hi wife is using his title and position to futher advance their sick agenda!

      • His blatant disrespect for the country and our President by not even bothering to attend his State of The Union Address, must be sufficient grounds to impeach his ass and have him removed from the court.

      • His blatant disrespect for the country and our President by not even bothering to attend his State of The Union Address ->For that, his azz should be impeached I agree!!!!

      • “His blatant disrespect for the country and our President by not even bothering to attend his State of The Union Address”

        I agree

  3. It’s been nice not hearing from you, Clarence T. Now how about recusing yourself altogether on account of your wife’s activities and your own intractabl­e partisansh­ip.

  4. A late pastor of mine once said, “When you don’t want people to know how dumb or ignorant you are, you just don’t open your mouth, you keep silent”.
    =================================================
    Clarence knows it’s best to keep his mouth shut and let people question his intelligen­ce, rather than open it and confirm their suspicions­.

    • LMAO @ “Clarence knows it’s best to keep his mouth shut and let people question his intelligen­ce, rather than open it and confirm their suspicions­.”

      That’s a brilliant observatio­n @Random. I going to use that one.

      Five years without raising one question is unconscion­able.

    • But! But!
      Any fool and ‘Long Dong Kong’ knows, IT IS BETTER TO KEEP SILENT AND BE THOUGHT A FOOL, THEN TO SPEAK UP AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT!

  5. Silent? Fa Real?
    And we question his silence fa real? When we all know the man is clearly out of his depth and shouldn’t be on the court at all.

  6. His interview on 60 Minutes was the most telling story I’ve ever heard. He came off as a man who is deeply scarred and hates the world because of what he’s gone through. His brand of conservati­sm reflects that. It’s scary that someone like him could rise to such a high level.

    • He came off as a man who is deeply scarred and hates the world –> this nicca don’t ‘hate da world’ he hate his own fucking people, he hate the color of his skin. Dat shit is so sad but it’s true!

    • This ‘uncle Tom’ fool is onlt remaining quite on the court, but in schools and every other social wedge issue, you can’t shut this sneaky mutherfucker up!!!

  7. This guy is a joke. Hands down!

    off-topic: ^^^does anyone know a ‘physical address’ for our blog queen. i wanted to send her roses 2day but was told i needed a physical address.

    And this guy is a Supreme Court justice why?!

    Neva mind, Don’t answer that. I already know the answer.

  9. LMAO @ “Clarence Thomas Hasn’t Said Shit In 5 Years”

    And Trace, isn’t it ironic that the poster boy for affirmativ­e action in this country is lauded by the Republican­s.

    And what makes him even more ludicrous as an appointee to the country’s highest court of the land, is that he would deny affirmativ­e action remedies to others coming out of a legacy of discrimina­tion.

    Clarence Thomas is a study in contradict­ions and not even an interestin­g one at that. He will go down in history as a joke!

    Why? Because God has a way of ‘dealing with people who don’t do right and who just ain’t right’ in HIS own time.

    • LMAO @ “Clarence Thomas Hasn’t Said Shit In 5 Years”

      Me2, but perhaps it’s better that he keep his mouth shut in order to not display his ignorance.

  10. Maybe he doesn’t know anything about constituti­onal laws….Hell, has he ever written an opinion?

    Sounds like he is just a puppet for the massa.

      • The man is a disgrace and a mockery to “Thurgood Marshall’s” memory.

        Yep and there are plenty of minority judges out there who could have earned the seat on their own merits.

      • Kayla & Starr., I agree…
        Justice Clarence Thomas is a disgrace to the memory of Justice Thurgood Marshall, whose ideas and philosophy were a beacon of hope for this country.

        The man was not qualified to sit on the Supreme Court following his contention confirmati­on hearing in the early 90’s, nor is he qualified to sit on the Supreme Court today.

      • It was disgracefu­l to have nominated him in Marshall’s footsteps in the first place, and disgracefu­l that he was allowed to survive the confirmati­on hearings, then ultimately appointed.

    • Associate Justice Thomas is a voluble, highly opinionate­d keynote speaker at dozens of conservati­ve and business organizati­onal meetings each year.

      He is not expected to speak in/or on the Supreme Court. He is expected to vote in lock-step with Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts.

      He is not expected to write opinions in the Supreme Court. His team of clerks are told to write statements supporting the majority and minority opinions written by Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and John Roberts.

      Its a great gig if you can get it. A

      Thomas gets “Money for doing Nothing” and Cans of Coke for free.”

      Isn’t that nice people?

  11. C’mon Tra, this post is BULLSHIT! How come you won’t tell us about your slammin weekend or where you had dinner this weekend. better yet, how come you won’t tell us where you going tonight. After all, it IS Vlanetine’s day!!! :)

  12. “Clarence Thomas Hasn’t Said Shit In 5 Years”

    That’s because, he may wear the robe but his wife wears the pants.

  13. No I’m not talking about the Grammy awards this morning —> thank god!!! cause every other blog site and news outlet is.

  14. Wow, he hasn’t contributed to a single discussion about a point of law in 5 years? Talk about job security! The Judge for life gig must be pretty cool, all you have to do is show up and STFU and you have a lifetime of great benefits, pay, and entitlements.

    DAYUM!

  15. yall peoples don know what youse is talkin abouts. he be stupid, was dum in schools,
