Ocasio-Cortez: Justice Thomas Rebuttal to Justice Jackson ‘Profoundly Disrespectful’

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was “profoundly disrespectful” when disagreeing with fellow Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Anchor Dana Bash said, “Thomas wrote, ‘Justice Jackson uses her broad observations about statistical relationships between race and select measures of health, wealth, and well-being to label all blacks as victims. Her desire to do so is unfathomable to me. It is an insult to individual achievement and cancerous to young minds seeking to push though barriers. Their race is not to blame for everything good or bad that happens in their lives.’ What is your response to that?”

Ocasio-Cortez said, “I mean, what Justice Clarence Thomas wrote there, I believe, is profoundly disrespectful. I just think it was profoundly disrespectful to his colleague. It includes sweeping assumptions about her worldview.”

She added, “Whereas when you look at what, what the response was from Justice Ketanji Brown, we saw that her dissent was grounded in fact, it was grounded in the facts of the case. It did not disparage Clarence Thomas’s overall worldview, but as a matter of fact, a nuanced critique of his analysis of the facts of the case. For him to come out and insinuate that her opinion is due to some sort of inferior or less than, you know, less than really thought-out of a stance, I think it’s profoundly insulting.”

  1. Justice Thomas was 100% correct. Was AOC a good bar hop? That’s questionable with bias ways. What was disrespectful was Jackson attributing decision on race. That seems very disrespectful to blacks saying without the race aspect you have no chance because your brain is inferior

  2. AOC “thinks” she knows EVERYTHING! She even knows how to tell God, himself, what to do and how to do it, especially if it doesn’t align with her concept of what should be done. Concisely: AOC is a SPOILED BRAT! None of us get our way all the time or the idiot in the oval wouldn’t be there. She belongs on the bar, or at least behind it. Please feel free to go back to the bar you tended, we won’t miss you!
