Justice Clarence Thomas has been one of the most pivotal players in the conservative movement. Losing him would be devastating.
And Ted Cruz just revealed tragic news about Clarence Thomas.
Democrats have been trying to bring down Clarence Thomas ever since George H.W. Bush nominated him for the Supreme Court.
Of course, they hate him because he is a strict Constitutionalist that won’t invent novel legal theories to give a rubber stamp to Leftist ideas.
But there’s another, more sinister reason and Ted Cruz finally said it.
During this week’s Fox News Channel broadcast of “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speculated that Democrats “hate” Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas due to his race.
According to Cruz, the claims of wrongdoing brought against Thomas were no worse than what the high court’s left-leaning justices have done in the past.
“Three conservative Supreme Court justices are under investigation for ethics,” host Maria Bartiromo said.
“They are attacking Clarence Thomas. Did Clarence Thomas do something wrong?”
“No, you know what Justice Thomas did wrong?” Cruz responded.
“He has been one of the greatest Supreme Court justices ever to serve on the court. He has been a principled constitutionalist. And the left despises him. Democrats hate Justice Thomas. And they have a special degree of hate for him because he’s a black man,” Cruz continued.

He went on to say that their worldview forbids black Americans from being conservatives.
“And their view is an African-American is not allowed to be a conservative, is not allowed to disagree with left-wing orthodoxy. Justice Antonin Scalia, whom I knew well, was every bit as conservative as Justice Thomas. The left didn’t heap that kind of contempt on Justice Scalia. Justice Thomas, they view as a traitor because he is African-American. And he’s an extraordinary justice.”
“And, listen, the — quote — ‘ethics complaints’ they’re raising, every single Supreme Court justice, all nine of them, take trips across the country, take trips internationally that are paid for by others, many of the liberal icons,” he continued.
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg took over 100 trips. Stephen Breyer took over 100 trips. Sonia Sotomayor took over 100 trips. And all of the media, all the Democrats who are attacking Justice Thomas, they don’t care at all,” Cruz went on.
“They’re not looking at any of the Democrat justices. They’re not looking at any other judges. This is a political smear job directed at Clarence Thomas because he is an extraordinary constitutionalist. And the left hates him for it.”
