Clarence Thomas Says 'Modern Liberal' Worse Than KKK, I'm' Wrong Black Guy'

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas came out swinging at modern liberals and their lack of character in a new documentary where com compared them to Klansman.
The 71-year-old Justice was being interviewed for a new movie set to hit theaters in 2020 titled “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.”
“I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it’s gonna be the Klansmen; it’s gonna be the rural sheriff,’” he said.
“But it turned out that through all of that, ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern day liberal,” Justice Thomas said.
“They were the ones who would discount all those things because they have one issue or because they have the power to caricature you.”
The movie was created by conservative filmmaker Michael Pack and Manifold Productions and takes a hard look at former Vice President Joe Biden who was instrumental in the Anita Hill hearings.

Hill was a black law professor who accused Justice Thomas of sexual harassment. A claim that continues to follow him.
“Do I have like stupid written on the back of my shirt? I mean come on. We know what this is all about,” the Justice said.
“People should just tell the truth: ‘This is the wrong black guy; he has to be destroyed.’ Just say it. Then now we’re at least honest with each other,” he said.
“The idea was to get rid of me,” Justice Thomas said. “And then after I was there, it was to undermine me.”
He said the Democrats conspired against him, much like they have been accused of doing to Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
And he said they did it for the simple reason that “because they have one issue or because they have the power to caricature you.”
“Most of my opponents on the judiciary committee cared about only one thing,” the conservative justice said in the movie.
“How would I rule on abortion rights. You really didn’t matter and your life didn’t matter. What mattered is what they wanted and what they wanted was this particular issue,” he said.
“I understood what he was trying to do. I didn’t really appreciate it,” The Justice said of Biden, sans mentioning his name. “Natural law was nothing more than a way of tricking me into talking about abortion.”
“One of the things you do in hearings is you have to sit there and look attentively at people you know have no idea what they’re talking about,” he said.
