Justice Clarence Thomas honored with statue, called ‘Uncle Tom’ on GA Senate floor in racially charged rant over it

Few things are more hated by the left than successful black conservatives and that is especially the case when it comes to Clarence Thomas who was slammed by a Georgia Democrat lawmaker during a debate on whether the iconic Supreme Court Justice should be honored with a statue in his home state.

During a Tuesday debate on the tribute to a man who has been an inspiration to generations of young black Americans, State Senator Emanuel Jones expressed his extreme disapproval of the statue which would be displayed at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta, suggesting that Justice Thomas was a betrayer of his race.

In his remarks opposing the statue, Sen. Jones referred to the iconic jurist as an “Uncle Tom” which is the preferred epithet for blacks who refuse to reside on the Democratic Party plantation, and accused Thomas of having “sold his soul to the slave master” in a nasty, racially charged rant.

“When we talk about a person of color that goes back historically, the days of slavery and that person betray in his own community, we have a term in the black community,” Jones said. “That term that we use is called Uncle Tom.'”

“And Uncle Tom is a either fictional or nonfictional character, I don’t really know the origin of Uncle Tom, but it talks about a person who back during the days of slavery sold his soul to the slave masters,” he added, admitting ignorance over where the term originated, the 1852 anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Over the years, the term has been weaponized against people of color who refuse to wear the chains of mental slavery that Democrats have effectively used to maintain control over the critical demographic that is integral to their political power, it has often been hurled at Justice Thomas, a man who had to face actual racial discrimination during the Jim Crow era.

One of those labeling Thomas as an Uncle Tom was Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) who chaired the now defunct House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol and who, during a 2014 New Nation of Islam radio appearance, invoked the slur while also stating that “it’s almost to the point saying this man doesn’t like black people, he doesn’t like being black.”

“In the same breath that he says he doesn’t know the origin of ‘Uncle Tom,’ he uses it to describe Clarence Thomas for having the audacity to have his own beliefs,” tweeted Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) of Jones’ remarks. “This language has no place in America, and certainly has no place on a Senate floor.”

Other Twitter users ripped Sen. Jones for his disgusting use of the smear.

Despite Sen. Jones’ histrionics, the vote to approve the statue honoring Thomas was approved along party lines by a tally of 32-20 with the debate now moving to the Peach State’s House on enshrining the native of Pin Point, Georgia which is located near Savannah.
