You may or may not be aware of another rabid tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory running all through liberal media.
The people buying into it are the folks that were primed by the fake Russia collusion stories, the same people who believe every false story pitched about the evil Orange Man.
But the latest one has an evil purpose on the end of it — to try to do anything they can to attack Justice Clarence Thomas, and change the Supreme Court while Joe Biden is in power and the Democrats have control in Congress.
It’s particularly evil at this time since Justice Clarence Thomas was, at last check, in the hospital with an infection. It’s not clear if he is still there and it’s a bit concerning that we haven’t heard anything since they said that he would probably be out of the hospital in a day or two at the beginning of the week.
Now, the crux of the conspiracy theory seems to be to accuse his wife, Ginni Thomas, of trying to “overthrow the election,” attach her to the Jan. 6 riot, and then claim that somehow that should force Justice Thomas out. Yes, I know, it doesn’t make any sense, but I never said this was logical. Thomas was at the peaceful rally beforehand on the Ellipse on Jan. 6, she was not at the Capitol. But the left has tried to conflate that with the later riot at the Capitol.
Now, what made the conspiracy spin a bit on Thursday was a story the Washington Post published that referenced text messages provided to the Jan. 6 Committee, allegedly between then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Ginni Thomas. The story talks about the messages but doesn’t show the messages or link to them, so all we have is the WaPo’s interpretation of what they say. This makes me wonder why they didn’t publish the actual messages and if they’re spinning them to make them sound worse than they are. But that said, while the messages allegedly indicated that Thomas thought that there was fraud in the election, it didn’t show that Thomas had done anything improper in anything that the WaPo listed. George Terwilliger III, Mark Meadows attorney, told the WaPo, “[N]othing about the text messages presents any legal issues.” So she had an opinion, shared by many, that there were issues. Pro-tip to the crazy conspiracy folks pushing this? You can have an opinion and it isn’t illegal.
But that’s not stopping the crazy people from jumping off a ledge and spinning the messages even further than what was in the WaPo story. Here, a Slate writer says something that wasn’t in the WaPo article, accusing Thomas of urging Meadows to “overturn the 2020 election by any means necessary” and “corruption.”
Ginni Thomas urged Mark Meadows to overturn the 2020 election by any means necessary—while her husband was ruling on cases attempting to overturn the election. A truly extraordinary level of corruption. https://t.co/Nyf2q1T9mo pic.twitter.com/2L73ERgCeS

What corruption? As far as I can tell from the texts listed, there isn’t anything illegal discussed — they’re discussions about various concerns about fraud. So? These folks truly have gone into delusion-ville.
How to know you’re on the wrong side of an issue? When the WaPo’s Jen Rubin and long-disgraced Dan Rather are on one side, you want to be on the other side — that’s a basic rule of life. But as you can see, the ultimate aim is to impeach him or at least smear him once again, even if it doesn’t make any sense.
“Thomas’s vote in the Jan. 6 case is such a striking conflict of interest, critics say, that some hope it sparks further support for long-sputtering efforts to toughen rules governing the justices…” If not an impeachment inquiry

What does Clarence Thomas know? And when did he know it?

But while the effort is delusional, so was Russia collusion. Democrats pushed that for years and damaged the country in so doing. You still have a boatload of people that believe that lie. Democrats, including Joe Biden, also didn’t have any problem with trying to push the first high-tech lynching of Thomas. It’s not surprising they would do anything to try another now when they are so desperate to grab a Supreme Court seat, even as Thomas lies ill. It’s despicable and disgusting.
So let me not be the final word on this mania. Let Clarence Thomas be the final word on the evil that the left has perpetrated against him and his family — when he termed the smear against him a “high-tech lynching.”
