Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has long been a thorn in the side of the so-called “progressive” Left. He’s been embracing that role over the past couple years.
And now Clarence Thomas has dropped the hammer on the radical Left with this jaw-dropping sentence.
The radical so-called “progressive” Left loves to throw around the racism card and claim to be the party of “diversity.”
That’s ironic coming from the Democrat Party that literally did everything they could to prevent a black man like Clarence Thomas from being confirmed to the Supreme Court bench.
The truth is that, today true diversity of ideas means nothing to Democrats and the Left.
They just want to pull the racism card on their political opponents whenever they get the chance so they don’t have to win an argument of ideas.
That’s because they know their ideas are failures.
One of the Left’s efforts to force their skewed view of diversity onto everyone else is through the racist policy of affirmative action.
Affirmative actions force colleges and universities to consider skin color when accepting student applications. Meaning someone with a slightly less impressive application could be accepted over someone more qualified based on their skin color being less prevalent on campus.
Affirmative action has come into focus for the Supreme Court lately, with cases being heard that consider the merits of affirmative action.
During arguments being heard by the High Court, North Carolina State’s Solicitor General Ryan Park stated multiple times that there are “education benefits” to forced diversity with affirmative action.
Justice Thomas wasn’t having any of that vague nonsense, though. Thomas made himself clear that he wanted to hear what educational benefits there are to this so-called “diversity.”
He also implied that diversity has lost its meaning because everyone throws it around so much on the Left these days.
“I’ve heard the word ‘diversity’ quite a few times, and I don’t have a clue what it means. It seems to mean everything for everyone,” Thomas noted.
“I’d also like you to give us a clear idea of exactly what the educational benefits of diversity at the University of North Carolina would be.”
Mr. Park tried to claim that diversity leads to a better learning environment but Thomas wasn’t having any of it. He continued to press Park saying that he never provided exactly what the educational benefits of diversity are.
So far, most legal experts have agreed that during the oral arguments so far, it sounds like the Supreme Court is poised to ban affirmative action from college and university admissions.
One legal expert noted that Chief Justice Roberts was becoming fed up with the pro-affirmative action corner.
“Chief Justice Roberts at points appeared to be losing his patience with Harvard’s counsel Seth Waxman due to his combative style in oral argument,” Turley said in an interview with Fox News.
The conservative-leaning Supreme Court bench seems like they are not convinced by the arguments for forced diversity with policies like affirmative action.
Ideally, affirmative action is banned from colleges like they seem poised to do.
