For John, BLUF: Can't we celebrate success? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the pen of Monica Crowley and The Washington Times we have "The left’s long war against Clarence Thomas". The sub-headline is "A new HBO drama reprises the left’s ‘high-tech lynching’". Twenty-five years on.
Here is the lede plus one:
In its war for America, the left never rests, sometimes falters but rarely allows itself to fail. It works tirelessly to “fundamentally transform the nation” and smashes anyone and anything that gets in its way.Ms Crowley nails it.
Consider the pitched battle it has waged against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas over the past quarter-century. Instead of celebrating and honoring a black man who rose from grinding poverty in the segregated South to sit on the nation’s highest court, the left sees an existential threat: a black pro-life, pro-gun conservative who has spent his life crushing leftist orthodoxy. He must, therefore, not simply be opposed, but destroyed, regardless of how long it takes.
If you don't rise up the Democratic Party way you are bogus. Except Justice Clarence Thomas is the real deal.
