In his concurrence on Students For Fair Admissions, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “In the wake of the Civil War, the country focused on restoring the Union and establishing the legal status of newly freed slaves.” Interesting phrasing by Thomas. It...
Religion is the creation of those with power and wealth who play on the fears of the uneducated and superstitious, causing them to become subservient to them through their fear of suffering everlasting damnation if they fail to do what their rich and powerful overlords tell them to do.
For Tucker Carlson, it was never about imparting the truth. As his high school friend told a reporter, “He saw Tucker making the pragmatic decision to follow a business model that made his conservative media counterparts a lot of money.”
It’s obvious what rankles Ms. Salinis; she is an illiterate troglodyte who couldn’t handle seeing a young Black female reciting a poem of hope for this country.
