The racial slur “Uncle Clarence” was trending on Twitter today as leftists on the platform took action against the US Supreme Court after it was ousted Roe v. calfalong with death threats notably against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
In a landmark 5-4 ruling this Friday, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Calf, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion in the United States
Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett concurred with the majority view of Samuel Alito, while Liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan disagreed.
Almost immediately, leftists took to Twitter to voice their feelings—often under threat of violence. In tweets that now remain on the platform, some Twitter users have issued death threats against Clarence Thomas, widely regarded as the most conservative Supreme Court justice.

“We should kill Clarence Thomas,” one Twitter user replied to another, who said they “don’t see how they could realistically stop the tainting of ‘Decades of Progress’.”

“I’m going to kill Clarence Thomas,” said another.
In a tweet, which has since been removed from Twitter, one user declared, “I am going to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.”

“Cool moment in the bar last night with my communist friends, one of them said they wanted to kill Clarence Thomas with a bow and arrow and everyone was like hell year,” said another user.
Other users used racial slurs instead of violent threats – also a violation of the Twitter Rules, although most slurs are still hosted on the platform.
Several Twitter users referred to Thomas as a “house n**er.”

Earlier in the day, Twitter allowed the term “Uncle Clarence” to trend on the platform, a reference to the racial slur “Uncle Tom”. Like “hausni**er,” it refers to blacks considered overly allied with whites, with the unspoken assumption that both races are destined for endless conflict.
