Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas criticizes judges for veering into politics

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Thursday criticized some in the judiciary for veering into the role of legislators and politicians, saying it is not the role of judges to make policy or to base decisions on their personal feelings or religious beliefs. 

Speaking at the University of Notre Dame, Thomas said judges "venturing into areas we should not have entered into" is part of why the nomination process, particularly for federal judges with lifetime appointments like himself, is so contentious.

  1. Justice Thomas is probably the last honorable man that will serve on the Supreme Court. Certainly, he is the last that isn't a child of snotty Northeastern privilege with Ivy League educated parents, private schools, and the way smoothed by family connections. He came up hard with the additional strike of being black, bringing the associated low expectations and cruelty with it. If you grew up an Appalachian white trash hillbilly as I did and achieved even moderate success in life, you have more in common with Justice Thomas than any of the other gilded lillies on that Court.
