That would be the greatest Supreme Court justice we ever have had, the completely admirable and honorable Clarence Thomas.
“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.” — Matthew 6:2
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas embodies this verse well, as it has recently come to light that he has been quietly placing Christmas wreaths on the graves of American veterans for years.
D.C. journalist and author Emily Miller spotted Thomas volunteering for Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday, as seen in a photo she posted to Twitter.
Wreaths Across America is a charitable organization that mobilizes thousands of volunteers every year to put wreaths on the graves of veterans and fallen soldiers.
This isn’t the first year Thomas has volunteered at Arlington Cemetery, either.
The justice can be seen in a candid photo from 2013 helping to clean up the cemetery after the Christmas season on a rainy January day.
The un-self-conscious nature of the photo stands in stark contrast to the contrived photo-ops that Democratic politicians conjure up for their own selfish ambitions and narratives.
Which, there have been plenty of those, to the surprise of no sane and aware person. Exhibit A:
Democratic New Jersey Rep. Andy Kim shamelessly attempted to gain clout from the Capitol incursion by cleaning up the “carnage,” as described by one Facebook user — the carnage being a few water bottles.
A photo captured Kim “experiencing the horror firsthand,” while everything around him looked hilariously pristine.
The photo-op photo in question:
The thing to remember here is, as the author reiterates in his closing ‘graphs, Justice Thomas has been going about his good works on the QT rather than making sure plenty of Enemedia cameras were on hand to publicize him for it. It’s exactly as the last line says:
We could use more people in Washington demonstrating a spirit of humility and gratitude rather than selfish ambition.
Couldn’t we, though. Couldn’t we just.
