Anita Hill Reveals Biden Called Her, But She Didn't Exactly Accept His Apology. Anita Hill has revealed to the New York Times that former Vice President (and newly declared 2020 candidate) Joe Biden phoned her earlier this month to express his regrets about the 1991 Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. Hill testified against Thomas at the time, claiming he had sexually harassed her when she worked for him at the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission.
The person that should receive an apology from Biden, Paul Simon, Ted Kennedy, Herb Kohl, Howard Heflin, Dennis DeConcini, and Howard Metzenbaum is Justice Clarence Thomas. The confirmation hearing of Clarence Thomas was not unlike the hearing for Bret Kavanaugh. Wild accusations with no collaboration. I remember listening to the hearings and reading the outlandish reports in the media. Here was a black nominee for Supreme Court Justice who did not collaborate with the idea that the Constitution could mean whatever you wanted it to mean but that the words of the Constitution had real meaning. He also said that the law could not apply differently to different people depending on their political persuasion.
This is how then nominee Clarence Thomas described the hearings:
“This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.”
Oh yes, Biden should apologize, but he should apologize to Justice Thomas and the American public for allowing what should have been a discussion on difficult matters to descend into the circus it did based on wild accusations with absolutely no collaboration of any kind. If you watched the Kavanaugh hearings, you saw the Thomas hearings. You witnessed the standard approach used by collectivists, “The ends always justify the means.” Truth and civility have no place in any hearings, according to the collectivist, when what they regard as the standard is being threatened.
Lenin described these antics so accurately when he said, “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.”
Collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats-all virtually the same) believe their revolution is unquestionably moral. “From the point of view of communist morality, the struggle against everything which hinders the cause of communist construction is moral and humane and for this reason we consider the struggle against the enemies of communism to be of a moral nature,” Lenin explained.
Nominees Clarence Thompson and Brett Kavanaugh represented a hindrance to the communist cause or the cause of the Democrat party and so any attack on them was considered justified. These collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) can not be bothered with such things as The Constitution of the United States, rule of law, decency, morality, truth, and facts.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
