Thomas recently blistered all of the Left’s sacred cows in one Supreme Court concurrence. In his opinion in the Dobbs case, he wrote, “I join the opinion of the Court because it correctly holds that there is no constitutional right to abortion,” and of course, contributed to the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
However, in the same opinion, Thomas suggested that the court needed to reconsider its previous rulings on contraception and homosexual marriages.
“Since the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, we have heard from members of our community who have expressed feelings of deep disagreement with this decision,” the dean wrote.
“We also have received requests from some members of the university and external communities that the university terminate its employment of Adjunct Professor and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and cancel the Constitutional Law Seminar that he teaches at the Law School.”
However, the dean also cited deliberation and debate as core tenants of George Washington University. It then informed the faculty that “the university will neither terminate Justice Thomas’ employment nor cancel his class in response to his legal opinions.”
This is not George Washington University’s first encounter with cancel culture, but it may be the first refusal to ignore demands for cancelations. According to the New York Post, the University canceled its own historic mascot, “The Colonials,” citing concerns about offending its students.
In 2020 a GWU professor opted to cancel herself after she made many fraudulent claims that she was black.
Still, GWU has stood firm where Harvard caved.
