If you even want to see the extent of the left’s stupidity, you watch The View. While most intelligent Americans avoid this show like the plague, many brain-dead liberals actually believe what these harping crones have to say.
Former actress Whoopi Goldberg decided to insult the respected Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. After he recently criticized colleges’ discriminatory “affirmative action” policies, Whoopi had to chime in–despite not knowing a thing about the issue.
From The Western Journal:
Goldberg reacted by suggesting that Thomas — the longest-tenured Supreme Court justice and the second black person to serve on the high court — was unqualified because he was a beneficiary of affirmative action.
The TV host claimed that Clarence Thomas would not have become a Supreme Court justice, had it not been for affirmative action policies that give preferential treatment to minorities. And, it seems that Thomas did get into Yale because he was a black man.
But he quickly found out, once he was out of college, that affirmative action was a curse, not a blessing. Many law firms avoided Thomas, assuming he was given special treatment while in college. Despite having stellar grades from a respected university, he suffered from the “taint of racial preference.”
Because affirmative action rewards students over race, not achievement, people in the real world are doubtful. For decades, colleges have spit out graduates who skirted by because of their skin color. And companies ended up with poorly trained and unqualified workers.
Affirmative action actually ended up hurting Thomas, who had to work twice as hard to overcome the stigma. He even said that the stigma viewed by companies was real because many people who benefited from affirmative action weren’t qualified for their jobs.
Now, why is he being attacked by a former comedian for trying to end this stigma for millions of future college graduates?
Whoopi tried to slander Thomas, without even understanding the consequences of what he is doing. All she sees is a conservative man and it was knives out. Perhaps next time she’ll think before she speaks
(But this is a woman who insulted Holocaust victims, so I’m doubtful.)
- Whoopi Goldberg slandered Supreme Court Justice Thomas, saying he benefited from affirmative action.
- Thomas has frequently spoken about how affirmative action hurt his career, not helped.
- The Supreme Court is currently hearing a case that could end the practice for good.
