Another leftist just revealed his true, disturbing colors.
Fox News reports that UCLA’s Director of Race and Equity was recently caught publicly wishing for the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Taking the mask off
The UCLA director who made the remark is Jonathan Perkins. The sickening remark came in a tweet that he released last Thursday.
The tweet read:
No one wants to openly admit [we all] hope Clarence Thomas dies. 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.
There’s a lot to unpack in that message, besides the fact that Perkins just openly wished Thomas dead, while at the same time trying to claim that this is normal behavior.
By calling Thomas “Uncle Thomas,” Perkins was clearly suggesting that Thomas is a traitor to his race. It is an accusation that has been leveled at Thomas and other Black conservatives for years, for both his conservative approach to judicial decision-making and his personal conservative beliefs, both of which stand against the political left’s agenda.
With the “sexist token” comment, Perkins was referring to another accusation that has been made against Thomas for years, namely, the sexual harassment allegation brought by Anita Hill during Thomas’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing back in 1991.
Finally, the “treasonous wife” comment refers to Thomas’s wife, conservative advocate Virginia Thomas.
Last week, CBS News and The Washington Post released a report revealing text messages that were exchanged between Virginia Thomas and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows following the 2020 presidential election. In the text messages, Virginia Thomas urges Meadows to challenge the results of the election.
To add one more layer to this, Perkins launched this attack on Thomas while he was still in the hospita, where he stayed for a week to recover from an infection.
As is often the case when leftists make such statements, Perkins quickly put his mask back up after taking it down. He wished for Thomas’s death on Twitter on Thursday and by Monday he set his account to private.
Anna Spain Bradley, UCLA’s Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, put out a statement saying that Perkins’s tweet “does not reflect my or UCLA EDI’s views.” It’s unclear whether UCLA is going to take any further action against Perkins. It’s probably best not to hold your breath waiting for that.
