A Democratic lawmaker from Minnesota criticized Tuesday’s Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act by calling Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Thomas,” then saying he didn’t know “Uncle Tom” was a racist epithet.
On his Twitter account Tuesday, state Rep. Ryan Winkler called the justices’ 5-4 ruling striking down a part of the law racist, and the work of “four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” Justice Thomas, who is black, was one of the five justices in the majority.

Where's the outrage? The call for his resignation? The media coverage?
Paula Deen gets canned for saying something viewed as racist, in private years ago, but this guy gets to call a sitting SCOTUS Justice a racial epithet because he doesn't like a decision and he still gets to live off the taxpayer dime?
Does Liberal hypocrisy know no bounds?
