Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is a jackass, and he’s married to a wingnut terrorist. His wife is Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, a hard-right Republican. She actively supported Donald Trump and every part of his agenda, including the “let’s overthrow democracy and install Trump as a despotic king” agenda. She supported and likely helped to organize “Stop the Steal” rally, which led to the terrorist attack on the Capitol on January 6th, although it’s now believed that she did NOT finance the transport of armed white supremacist terrorists into DC. Now Ginni Thomas is “apologizing.” But not to us. Not to the congressmen and congresswomen who worried that the terrorists – whom Ginni Thomas supported morally – would kill them. Not to the Capitol Police officer who was murdered by terrorists. Not to the families of the police officers who died by suicide following the siege. No, Ginni Thomas apologized to her husband’s clerks. I can’t with this bitch.
Conservative political activist Virginia Thomas told her husband Justice Clarence Thomas’s former law clerks that she was sorry for a rift that developed among them after her election advocacy of President Donald Trump and endorsement of the Jan. 6 rally in D.C. that resulted in violence and death at the Capitol.
“I owe you all an apology. I have likely imposed on you my lifetime passions,” Thomas, who goes by Ginni, recently wrote to a private Thomas Clerk World email list of her husband’s staff over his three decades on the bench. “My passions and beliefs are likely shared with the bulk of you, but certainly not all. And sometimes the smallest matters can divide loved ones for too long. Let’s pledge to not let politics divide THIS family, and learn to speak more gently and knowingly across the divide.”
A sampling of posts made to the group were shared with The Washington Post by a member upset with some of the pro-Trump messages written by Ginni Thomas and others in the lead-up and aftermath of the election. Thomas did not respond to requests for comment. Several former clerks, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the listserv is private, verified the dispute in what is normally an affable setting meant to celebrate achievements of the clerk “family.”
Besides the friction there, Thomas has drawn outrage among liberals for public political commentary on her “Ginni Thomas” Facebook page. Her comments there celebrated Trump’s supporters who assembled in D.C. on Jan. 6, hundreds of whom stormed the Capitol, resulting in the deaths of five people. In the early morning post, Thomas encouraged her Facebook followers to watch the day’s events unfold on conservative news media, writing, “LOVE MAGA people!!!!” She added in another: “GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU STANDING UP or PRAYING.”
“Thomas has drawn outrage among liberals…” The way her extremism, her terrorism-adjacency, her support of a violent coup is being normalized as “yet another thing that nitpicky liberals are mad about!” Hopefully the overwhelming majority of Americans want all of these a–holes to go to prison. Even if you argue that Ginni Thomas maybe didn’t specifically support the violent overthrow of the government, she 100% supported THE OVERTHROW OF THE GOVERNMENT. Those terrorist a–holes at the Stop the Steal rally weren’t just humble conservatives with a different point of view. They believed that the election results should be thrown out and that Trump should be installed as Dear Leader for Life. They weren’t in DC for a g–damn picnic and Ginni Thomas knew that and she was cheering them on. Arrest her. And the fact that she’s only f–king apologizing to her husband’s staff, my God.
