The attacks on conservative Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas are part of a calculated and deliberate campaign aimed at besmirching their reputations and undermining the legitimacy of their decisions. These attacks are characterized by inflammatory rhetoric rather than substantive evidence, revealing the manipulative tactics employed by the left. ProPublica, the left-wing website that serves as a platform for these smears, cannot be considered an impartial news organization. It functions as a front group for liberal billionaires who seek to ensure that the Supreme Court aligns with their political agenda.
The funding of ProPublica primarily by the Sandler Foundation, a foundation with a questionable ethical track record, raises concerns about the organization’s credibility. The Sandlers played a role in the Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s and were partly to blame for the housing crash in 2008. Furthermore, the Sandler Foundation’s financial support of partisan groups like Demand Justice, which has spearheaded smear campaigns against conservative justices, demonstrates a clear bias against conservative values.
The attacks on Justices Alito and Thomas are not isolated incidents but part of a broader effort to exact revenge for the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The left’s tactic of pop-up pressure campaigns, where a few donors mobilize multiple organizations to create the illusion of a grassroots movement, is evident in this coordinated attack. The media and social media platforms are exploited to generate the appearance of widespread opposition to conservative justices. While ProPublica claims independence, the reality is that a significant portion of its funding comes from Democratic billionaire donors with a vested interest in smearing conservative opposition and advancing their far-left agenda. It is crucial to remain vigilant, critically evaluate the sources, and recognize the underlying motives behind these attacks to protect the integrity and independence of the judiciary.
