Last month liberals were openly complaining that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was a victim of racism and sexism because Republican senators dared to ask tough questions during her nomination hearings for the Supreme Court.
Such inquiries included requesting the judge define what a woman is or defend why she gave light sentences to traffickers of child porn.
Imagine how outraged liberals would have been if a prominent conservative publicly wished Jackson dead – as happened with current Justice Clarence Thomas.
Last week, after Thomas was hospitalized with an infection, UCLA’s Director of Race and Equity, Johnathan Perkins, tweeted that he wished Thomas died from the illness, which was described as a flu-like virus.
“No one wants to openly admit [we all] hope Clarence Thomas dies,” tweeted Perkins as he openly admitted he wanted Thomas to die.
“Whatever you need to tell yourselves. This whole rule we’re not to wish ill on people is silly. Uncle Thomas is a sexist token who’s committed himself to making us all share in he and his treasonous wife’s misery.”
According to a report by a Sinclair Broadcast Group affiliate, Perkins added, “I’m over it. He is bad. He’s LITERALLY endangered lives of countless of this country’s vulnerable populations.”
And then he even went full conspiracy theorist.
“Y’all really think he just so happened to SECRETLY be admitted to the hospital for an unidentified ailment the exact day the January 6th Committee released/leaked information implicating him and his wife?” Perkins tweeted. “Thomas can choke as far as I’m concerned. He hurts the people I love.”
According to UCLA’s website, Perkins works in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. “Together,” the office’s mission statement adds, “we aim to lead the University and larger community by providing tools and resources to build a community which promotes our shared value of upholding dignity for all.”
That is, unless you are a conservative black Supreme Court justice.
In response to one of their holders of a cushy, six-figure job publicly calling for the death of one of America’s most prominent leaders, UCLA did … nothing.
Perkins’ boss, Anna Spain Bradley, UCLA’s vice chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, told the Sinclair affiliate, “This tweet does not reflect my or UCLA EDI’s views.”
And that was that. Liberal privilege is an amazing thing.
