Supremely corrupt Clarence Thomas

Harlan Crow

Meet there billionaire tycoon who has been showering Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas with millions of dollars in gifts and vacations for years, in one of The most open and obvious corrupt schemes in modern American history. Here’s how it works: Harlan Crow, a business magnate and real estate developer from Texas, gifts Thomas and his wife extraordinary gifts like super yacht trips and private jet rides. In return, Thomas rules from the bench in a way that benefits Harlans business and bottom line at the expense of the masses. This is what corruption on the highest levels of Government looks like. - Really American

Mega MAGA yachts

How is it that I know lavish gifts must be reported by politicians and Supreme Court justices… but Clarence Thomas does not? Between his lapse of ethics regarding Mega MAGA yachts and private jets and his wife Ginni’s attempt to overthrow the government… perhaps it’s time for an investigation? - Billy Baldwin

Clarence Thomas has no ethics

Ethics

Oh please! Let’s stop with the “liberal press” BS. I’m a conservative and I know like YOU do that this stinks. $500,000 of free stuff—and that was just one trip?! ANYONE in PUBLIC SERVICE knows that kind of spending is not just “hospitality”. - Michael Steele

Ginni Thomas wife of Clarence Thomas is a right wing activist that pushed Mark Meadows to overturn the election results

Why humor works

Facts alone aren’t exciting. Spice them with a dash of humor to grab attention.
Get Noticed: Facts alone won’t get noticed. Humor and cartoons attract attention.
Memorable: Adding humor makes a message more likely to be remembered.
Retention: Amuse and entertain your audience so they stay to hear all of your message rather than click away.
Viral effect: Content that makes us laugh is most likely to be shared.

Humor for activists

Humor is a really effective weapon for activists. Humor rallies and motivates the troops, highlights absurdities and injustice, knocks sacred cows off their podiums, and undermines the authority of the power-that-be. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” - Saul Alinsky.

Rules for Radicals is a grassroots organizing Bible. Written in simple language, smattered with humorous vignettes and real-life stories from his years in organizing, it’s a wealth of strategy packed into a quick-turning 226 pages. Pick up a physical copy, because this book is gonna get you thinking and wanting to note things in the margins. But if you want or need a free copy, you can find it in various versions (text, pdf, Kindle, and audiobook) over at the Internet Archive. - Activism Joy Studio

TakeAway: Use ridicule to call out the supreme corruption of Clarence Thomas.
