Oh Anita, Still A Jerk After All These Years

The vilification of conservatives by lying liberals is nothing new. They can’t argue issues so they try to destroy the character of anyone who opposes their crazy schemes, which almost always involve taking from productive citizens to buy the votes of non-productive ones. Those of us who well-remember the Clarence Thomas hearings and the lies of Anita Hill noted recently that Ms. Hill called the police when Thomas's wife left a polite phone message asking for an apology after all these years. In 1991 liberals could not stand it that an intelligent black man would be a conservative who opposed affirmative action, and they set out to destroy him.

Fortunately for Justice Thomas and for the country as a whole there still existed a few principled southern Democrats who could not go along with this charade, and Thomas was confirmed.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a principled Democrat anymore.

Clarence Thomas’s Wife Asks Anita Hill for Apology

By CHARLIE SAVAGE October 19, 2010 NY Times (Excerpt)

WASHINGTON — "Nearly 20 years after Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his contentious Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Justice Thomas’s wife has called Ms. Hill, seeking an apology.

In a voice mail message left at 7:31 a.m. on Oct. 9, a Saturday, Virginia Thomas asked her husband’s former aide-turned-adversary to make amends. Ms. Hill played the recording, from her voice mail at Brandeis University, for The New York Times.

“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”

Ms. Thomas went on: “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.”

Ms. Hill, in an interview, said she had kept the message for nearly a week trying to decide whether the caller really was Ms. Thomas or a prankster. Unsure, she said, she decided to turn it over to the Brandeis campus police with a request to convey it the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“I thought it was certainly inappropriate,” Ms. Hill said. “It came in at 7:30 a.m. on my office phone from somebody I didn’t know, and she is asking for an apology. It was not invited. There was no background for it.”

In a statement conveyed through a publicist, Ms. Thomas confirmed leaving the message, which she portrayed as a peacemaking gesture. She did not explain its timing.

“I did place a call to Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years, in hopes that we could ultimately get past what happened so long ago,” she said. “That offer still stands. I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended.”" NY Times
