Now that Scalia is dead, Clarence Thomas is kind of like a freed slave, isn’t he?

Oh boy. This is about to go off the rails, isn’t it?

Yes, this black man fights Union soldiers with white men who hate nothing more than people who look like him. How is this possible? Holt is very close to his master, a Southern gentleman named George Clyde (Simon Baker) who bought his right to freedom. …

Clyde is shot and killed in battle, and Holt is freed from his master’s love. At this moment, he leaves the shadows of silence and begins talking a lot. Near the end of Ride with the Devil, he has this important conversation with Jake Roedel (Tobey Maguire), the film’s hero:

Holt: That day George Clyde died, it changed me. I felt something that day I ain’t never felt.

Roedel: You felt that loss, that hollow feeling.

Holt: No, what I felt was free.

don’t do it don’t do it don’t do it

Why was this scene on my mind yesterday? Because I couldn’t help thinking along these lines: Now that Scalia is dead, is there the possibility of Clarence Thomas having a Holt-like experience, a transformative experience?                                                 h/t Ace

  • My sense is no.

  • The ongoing treatment of Clarence Thomas by the left never fails to disgust me.

      His days are numbered. If Scalia was “helped” along and the refusal by the obama appointy who got there 1st to order an autopsy makes me think so. Then Thomas will be the next victim.

          Its still not sop for most of the country.

      • The left has done their utmost to run.

        They will keep him alive just to torture him and make an example out of him.

      If they couldn’t make it about race, then they’d have to engage
      Justice Thomas’ views, and leftists are unable to do that.
      Pointing and shouting ‘racism!’ is about all they’ve got. Yes,
      it’s disgusting.

    Marxists make much talk about freedom and many other good things.
    Until they achieve total control.
