Josh Hawley Turns the Tables on ‘Misogynistic’ Democrats Over Clarence Thomas Histrionics – Opinion

If there’s one thing we can say with certainty about the Democrat Party, it is that the height of their hypocrisy knows no bounds. And if there’s one thing we can say about Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley, it is that he’s a no-nonsense, bottom-line dude who speaks directly and bluntly, and doesn’t take any crap.

Combining the two creates magic.

The issue at hand is the continuing hysteria among Democrats calling for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign or be impeached, after reports surfaced that his wife, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, exchanged 29 text messages with Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows following the 2020 election.

The text messages didn’t mention Justice Thomas, nor did they refer to the Supreme Court. However, the majority of them were sent after the election in November and called on then-President Donald Trump not to stop fighting certification. One text message was only sent one day following the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot. Congressional Democrats immediately seized upon “all of the above” as “evidence” that Justice Thomas has engaged in unethical or compromising behavior.

Josh Hawley doesn’t like it. As reported by The Blaze, the Missourian told a CNN reporter that the Democrats’ hyperbolic reaction is “kind of misogynistic,” because they are intertwining Justice Thomas and his wife in a way that progressive and feminist ideology would not otherwise permit. Ooh, good point, Senator.

She’s an independent, adult woman, it just seems a little strange to me all of these calls for her husband to be what, like, minding her better? Frankly, I think it’s kind of misogynistic.

She’s a private individual. He’s a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, but I think this idea that he is somehow automatically responsible for everything she says — what does that mean? Do they have to ask him permission?

The Blaze noted that Justice Thomas and his spouse have maintained for decades they kept their work apart and don’t discuss work-related issues. Thomas’s impeccable, 30-year record on SCOTUS suggests so.

And during an appearance on “Hannity” on Tuesday, Hawley weighed in on the Democrat narrative that Joe Biden isn’t responsible for wayward son Hunter’s behavior, yet Thomas is apparently responsible for his wife’s behavior.

I look forward to all the calls for Joe Biden’s resignation from all of these Democrats on exactly the same logic that you just outlined, Sean. So, if Hunter Biden ends up getting indicted, as looks increasingly likely, then I guess the president needs to resign for that.


The idea that Ginni Thomas, his wife, is supposed to sign off on her texts and on her work with her husband, as if he’s in charge of her in some way, isn’t that misogyny? Isn’t that exactly what the Democrats are saying they are against?

The answers are “yes,” and “yes.” That said, we’re talking about a political party that fancies itself “the party of women” and blathers on about “equality,” yet calls black conservatives — male or female — names unfit to print, and endorses transgender “Females” kicking the hell out of females in women’s sports, so…

Ever the disingenuous (dishonest as hell) Democrat, Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, continues to call on Thomas to recuse himself from certain cases related to Jan. 6, insisting that Ginni Thomas’s text messages raise “a serious question about conflict of interest for Justice Thomas.” I’ll go out on a safe-as-hell limb and guess Dicky Durbin knows better.

Bottom line:

When Democrats don’t or can’t win, their first inclination is to cheat. When cheating doesn’t work, they try to change the rules. For example, they pack the Supreme Court. When that doesn’t work — and it won’t — what’s left?

In this case, impeach a sitting justice — that is not going to happen — or at the very least, force him or her to recuse.

Based on Clarence Thomas’ performance during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s “high-tech lynching” all those years ago when Anita Hill accused him of inappropriate behavior, I have a strong feeling he ain’t going anywhere.
