Patabook News "The social taboo against using racial slurs has once again flown out the window when it comes to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
"The Black conservative jurist was excoriated by pro-choice advocates over his concurring opinion last week in Dobbs v. Jackson with a wave of vitriol that included death threats and repugnant racist epithets on social media.
"The slurs included the n-word, “house n——r,” “coon,” “slave,” and “Uncle Tom.” Over the weekend “Uncle Clarence,” a spin on the derogatory term “Uncle Tom,” trended on Twitter after it was used by actor Samuel L. Jackson.
"Other accounts threatened to “kill” or “assassinate” Justice Thomas, one of six justices who made up the majority in Friday’s decision striking down the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

Hillary Clinton joins the pile-on against Clarence Thomas, getting her 'congenital liar' on "Six Supreme Court justices voted to overturn Roe v. Wade as a faulty legal ruling. But the left being the left, they are going after the black guy.
"Which explains the near insanity of the left's reaction against distinguished Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black and ruled with the majority. That's an unforgiveable thing to leftists who continue to view black people as their "property."
"There's been some grotesque stuff going on, leftists zeroing in on Thomas with a special rage in a special pile-on unseen anywhere else. That's led to strange specters such as white Karen-types openly employing the use of the "n word" against him, and other barbarians openly calling for the assassination of the justice, with no sanctions whatsoever while "Uncle Clarence" trended on the Twitter platform.
"It's a leftist thing. So in comes Hillary Clinton, to add to the pile-on:
