Clarence Thomas 1991: “I’d Rather Die than Withdraw…I don’t like Bullies” (Video)

Posted by FactReal on September 27, 2018

In 1991, then-Judge Clarence Thomas did not let leftist bullies and their smear campaign intimidate him during his confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court.

TRANSCRIPT: (October 12, 1991)

Senator Hatch (R-Utah): (video mark 18:10)

Judge, you are here though. Some people have been spreading the rumor that perhaps you are going to withdraw.

What is Clarence Thomas going to do? What is Clarence Thomas going to do?

Judge Thomas:

I would rather die than withdraw. If they are going to kill me, they are going to kill me.

Senator Hatch:

So, you would still like to serve on the Supreme Court?

Judge Clarence Thomas:

I would rather die than withdraw from the process. Not for the purpose of serving on the Supreme Court but for the purpose of not being driven out of this process. I will not be scared. I don’t like bullies. I have never run from bullies. I never cry uncle and I am not going to cry uncle today whether I want to be on the Supreme Court or not.

Senator Hatch:

Well, Judge, I hope next Tuesday you make it and I believe you will, and I believe you should. And I believe it is important for every American that you do.

Because I think in your short 43 years of life that you have just about seen it all and if anybody’s in a position to help their fellow men and women under the Constitution, then I have to say you are. And I am proud of you. I am proud of you for not backing down.
