What's Up With Ginni Thomas?

Does it matter that the spouse of a Supreme Court justice is sharing such nakedly partisan, erroneous propaganda? Or have we hit the point at which this kind of rhetoric has been so normalized that, well, why wouldn’t a prominent party activist be doing this?



What is Ginni Thomas saying now? The evolution of an unusually outspoken Supreme Court spouse

https://www.washingtonpost.com/resizer/Tw22cdJ8qKBk9J3nUl8sQySZrfI=/1484x0/arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/2NMPDBX4UYI6RIL6CYVXCLUPYI.jpg



She looks and sounds like the Washington wife of yore, with the pearl earrings, the Reagan-red cocktail attire, the sunglasses tiara’d atop her blond bob. At the holidays, she lays wreaths at Arlington and sings carols around the piano with her be-sweatered husband, Clarence, who happens to be the longest-serving justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Memorial Day means a backyard barbecue with star-spangled tablecloths and a sheet cake that reads “God Bless America!”

But meanwhile, on Facebook, she’s behaving like your slightly paranoid neighbor who stockpiles bullets and astronaut food.

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.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

This story might reflect the culture of the SC.  Justices may simply be politicians with robes.

10 years ago those views would have been viewed as representing the lunatic fringe.

Now they represent mainstream republicanism. 

God help us.
