An online petition that calls for the removal of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has attracted more than 1 million signatures.




The petition, titled “Impeach Justice Clarence Thomas,” was   created on the public advocacy organization   website MoveOn in May.

The petition description cited Thomas’s vote to overturn Roe v. Wade as reasoning for his removal.

“Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—who sided with the majority on overturning Roe—made it clear what’s next: to overturn high court rulings that establish gay rights and contraception rights,” the petition read.

The description also mentioned Thomas’s wife, Ginni Thomas, and her role in encouraging members of the Trump administration to continue to challenge the 2020 election results.


The Supreme Court earlier this year rejected a request by former President Trump to prevent the release of documents related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Thomas was the only justice to dissent on the matter.


“He has shown he cannot be an impartial justice and is more concerned with covering up his wife’s coup attempts than the health of the Supreme Court.”

“He must resign — or Congress must immediately investigate and impeach,” the petition concluded.

The petition garnered more than 1.1 million signatures and urges Congress to either investigate or impeach Thomas for his actions.

The MoveOn petition follows a similar one   created by George Washington University students   last week in an effort to remove Thomas from his teaching position with the Washington, D.C., university.

The student-led petition came after the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a landmark 1973 ruling that determined a woman’s right to abortion was constitutional.

In a school-wide letter, GWU officials said they don’t have plans to remove Thomas as an adjunct instructor in their law school, stating that he did not violate the school’s policy on academic freedom.

“Just as we affirm our commitment to academic freedom, we affirm the right of all members of our community to voice their opinions and contribute to the critical discussion that is foundational to our academic mission,” school officials wrote in their letter.

Probably while wearing pink pussy hats and between bouts of screaming at the sky and ignoring the nation's economy.

10 million could sign and it would all still mean the same thing.

Nothing.

Nothing at all.

Just some bozos wasting their time.

Perhaps that time would be better spent on what is required to impeach a member of SCOTUS.

You know they won't do that.  It would require work and they might learn something.

I bet half the fools signing the petition think that a SCOTUS member's spouse can be impeached, too!

The petition description cited Thomas’s vote to overturn Roe v. Wade as reasoning for his removal.

So, this decision from the SCOTUS involved a majority opinion.  But this "petition" goes after only one Justice.  Now, I can't help but wonder why they would go after the only black male Justice and not the entire majority.

Sure looks like racism to me when terms like 'Uncle Tom" and "token Thomas" are used.

What ELSE could the use of those words denote?

Surely not that the ones using the terms are open-minded and not prejudiced against Thomas because of the color of his skin. Or maybe they are just upset he married a white woman?

Looks like progressives are trying to make Thomas into their whipping boy.

Racist to their core, as you pointed out that they are ONLY attacking Thomas like this despite it being a MAJORITY decision.

That is why you hear derogatory, racist terms like "Uncle Tom" and 
Token Thomas" being bandied about by racists.

And that is exactly why I mentioned it.  We hear day in and day out that the right are the racists then ignore the "Uncle Tom" and "Token Thomas" comments.  If this were a real issue then there would be more than just Justice Thomas being targeted.
