Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot has never been one to mince words.Over the weekend, the openly lesbian mayor attended Chicago Pride, where she marched in the parade and gave an impassioned speech about Friday’s Supreme Court ruling that saw Roe v Wade overturned.“We will not live in a world, not in my city, where our rights are taken from us or rolled back,” Lightfoot said, before declaring, “F*ck Clarence Thomas!”Video of the moment has been blowing up on Twitter.Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot takes the stage and proclaims, "F*ck Clarence Thomas." pic.twitter.com/fLur8ussTi— The Post Millennial (@TPostMillennial) June 27, 2022In his concurring opinion to overturn Roe v.
Wade, Thomas said the Court should also take another look at Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell–cases which established federal protections for contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage, respectively.Related: Clarence Thomas wastes literally no time using Roe decision to attack gay rights“For that reason, in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” he wrote.The Court’s decision to overturn Roe upends nearly 50 years of precedent which allowed abortion until about 24 weeks of pregnancy.
Abortion will likely soon outlawed in half the states.Lightfoot isn’t the only one who’s pissed at Thomas. Here’s what others are saying…Language of SCOTUS decision on Roe has an ominous tone of anger and revenge — especially Clarence Thomas’s concurring opinion.— Michael Beschloss (@BeschlossDC) June 27, 2022Not a single day should go by without mentioning Ginni Thomas committing sedition with the help of her husband Uncle Clarence Thomas and both of them should.
