A small, mostly white Virginia town put up a 'Black Lives Matter' banner. Ginni Thomas denounced it.

The banner says “Welcome to Clifton, where Black Lives Matter.”

It was posted over the tiny Northern Virginia town’s Main Street, in a space mostly used to advertise community events, after residents proposed staging a protest like the ones that have swept the country since the death of George Floyd at the knee of a Minneapolis police officer.

The gesture — which Mayor William R. Holloway called “a first step” to beginning discussions of racial equity — drew mostly positive responses, according to the town clerk. But it prompted outrage from some residents of Fairfax County and nearby towns. Hathaway called the banner “the biggest controversy we’ve seen in many years.”

One critical email, which was shared with The Washington Post, appears to be from Ginni Thomas, an outspoken conservative whose consulting company is based in Burke, and who is married to Clarence Thomas, the only black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“BLM is a bit of a dangerous Trojan Horse and they are catching well-meaning people into dangerous posturing that can invite mob rule and property looting,” Ginni Thomas, who is white, wrote on June 24. “Let's not be tricked into joining cause with radical extremists seeking to foment a cultural revolution because they hate America.”

1. Let's see how Ginny feels if her husband is driving through

a white suburb at night and he get stopped - for some BS reason. He would be just some random black dude to the cops. He could be shot dead just like Mr. Castille.

Shut up Ginny. You don't know what you're talking about.

5. I believe that Justices have a driver and maybe a security person.

I believe that anywhere they go, they are driven.

4. A limerick for Ginny:

There once was a Thomas named Ginny
Who turned out to be quite a ninny.
She spewed out the patter
That her life didn't matter
And when did she stop being skinny?

6. Was there any evidence she ever stopped drinking?

This month, Ginni Thomas shared a Facebook post that bizarrely described California as a war zone, with illegal immigrants scaling walls and carjacking U.S. citizens. Last month, she shared a post alleging that Democrats committed voter fraud in four midterm races. (Which ones? How? She didn’t say.) Then there was the post in August (since deleted) proclaiming that teenage survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting are “dangerous to the survival of our nation” because of their gun-control activism. And the post in February that harangued Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for supposedly wiretapping Donald Trump — a baseless accusation indulged in only by conspiracy theorists.
...
During the Obama years, Thomas traveled the country connecting with the tea party movement and seeking allies in Congress. She made videos for the Daily Caller in which she wondered whether “cultural Marxists have already won in our country.” In 2016, Thomas, a devout Christian, endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas for president; after he dropped out, she began to see opportunity in Trump. The morning of his win, she was at the National Press Club with other conservatives, claiming the mantle of whatever the movement had become overnight.
...
But her most visible work is on Facebook, which she considers a prime conduit for influencing the conservative base. Her specialty is meme warfare — sharing loving tributes to Trump, derogatory takedowns of progressives and broadsides against congressional Republicans. A week after a neo-Nazi killed a woman by driving a car into a crowd in Charlottesville, Thomas derided House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not speaking out against violence on the left.
...
“I can’t believe that the wife of a Supreme Court justice would be spreading such dangerous lies,” wrote a Facebook commenter named Elizabeth in October, after Thomas equated Democrats with rioting and mob rule.

She is the embodiment of Trump's base - rabid, desperate to "own the libs", and if she's not spreading Russian bot rumours and libels, she's making them up herself. She exemplifies what is so bad about Republicans.
