Ginny’s Tea Party: A Bitter Brew

5 Feb

“I can’t be a racist. I’m married to a black man,” is something Virginia Thomas has to say quite frequently these days, with her newly SELF-APPOINTED position as “ambassador to the Tea Party Movement.”  Yes, I’m sure you all remember our charm-free Ginny, who, after 20 years, called up Anita Hill and demanded an apology for telling the truth about how Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her. According the NYT article, Virginia Thomas said on said on libertyinc.co, a Web site for her new political consulting business,

that she saw herself as an advocate for “liberty-loving citizens” who favored limited government, free enterprise and other core conservative issues. She promised to use her “experience and connections” to help clients raise money and increase their political impact.

“Liberty-loving citizens”–hmm, unfortunately that does not include us homos, or those of us that are pro-choice, or those of us that wish to stop giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.  If you have been following this blog, you know her husband a Justice on the Supreme Court has already used his celebrity and influence to raise money for the Tea Party (old cranky white man party), which is a violation of ethics for justices.  Of Course, legal ethicists worry that Ms. Thomas’s effort to take a more operational role on conservative issues could intensify questions about her husband’s ability to remain independent on issues like campaign finance and health care.  Gee! You think so? What a dynamic duo: a self-loathing black man who has over-assimilated into the white dominant culture (identification with the aggressor) and a white privileged woman that won’t have to worry about the anti-woman legislation being introduced because her money will protect her.  Click here to see the NYT article.

We sure do love some white wealthy people. Anita, we are still waiting for an apology!

    How soon will it be before we’re investigating the Supreme Court? These people were schooled in ethics. Even the appearance of impropriety should have them recusing themselves. Scalia, Thomas and Alito should have each recused themselves when deciding Citizen’s United.

    Are any of the other justices speaking at political fundraisers/exclusive events? If so then “off with their heads”…

      Mary, I hope EVERYONE sees your comment. I would like to underscore here this comment is from a well respected attorney with a superior intellect–the type of human we should all want as a Justice. Indeed, we should be investigating at least 5 members of the Supreme Court!

    Is there anything these loathesome people won’t stoop to? I suppose communing with the Mad Hatter at his party is a good place for Madame j’Accuse.

      LOL! I’m not sure Zola would appreciate being linked to our “Queen of Hearts” Ginny.

    Oooh – Queen of Hearts! I like it. I can just see Ginny Tea abusing wildlife for her own pleasure.

    Good article. I watched the video Rachel Maddow aired several months ago of Ginni Thomas speaking at some Tea Party events.
