You can put this bizarre episode in the ‘right-wing entitlement’ file:
Clarence Thomas’s Wife Asks Anita Hill for Apology
October 19, 2010 | New York Times
WASHINGTON — Nearly 20 years after Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his contentious Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Justice Thomas’s wife has called Ms. Hill, seeking an apology.
And them Anita said “You got me. I was lying the entire time — how did you, his wife, figure it out?”
In a voice mail message left at 7:31 a.m. on Oct. 9, a Saturday, Virginia Thomas asked her husband’s former aide-turned-adversary to make amends. Ms. Hill played the recording, from her voice mail at Brandeis University, for The New York Times.
“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”
And then I said “Good morning Virginia Thomas, it’s reality. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves [???] and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you’d harass, early on a Saturday morning, a legendarily private citizen, Anita Hill. You remember her, the Brandeis University Professor who never wanted anything to do with your lying clodhopper of a husband? Or currently anything to do with a pushy bitch like you?”
Ms. Thomas went on: “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.”
“Hey — afternoon, Ginni, reality again. Suck my cock. Why? I was just in the mood to call you. I won’t tell anybody. O.K., have a good day.”
“I thought it was certainly inappropriate,” Ms. Hill said. “It came in at 7:30 a.m. on my office phone from somebody I didn’t know, and she is asking for an apology. It was not invited. There was no background for it.”
In a statement conveyed through a publicist, Ms. Thomas confirmed leaving the message, which she portrayed as a peacemaking gesture.
“Evening, Virginia. You refused to blow me, but I would accept cramming my peen up your ass in the middle of the night as a peacemaking gesture, just between us. Yes, just between two adults who hold each other in the highest esteem.”
. . sincerely,
Someone You’ve Never Met
