According to the university, Thomas was going to teach constitutional law seminar aimed at helping students get “a more complete story” of famous Supreme Court cases by exploring “additional facts” about the social and political context surrounding the court’s decisions. The course has been co-taught since 2011 with Greg Maggs, a professor who clerked for Thomas and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.
In a message obtained by student newspaper The GW Hatchet , Maggs reportedly told the class that Thomas would be “unavailable” to teach in the upcoming fall semester.
“Unfortunately, I am writing with some sad news: Justice Thomas has informed me that he is unavailable to co-teach the seminar this fall,” the professor reportedly wrote. “I know that this is disappointing. I am very sorry.”
In a statement to The Epoch Times, GW spokesperson Josh Grossman confirmed that Thomas informed the law school that he won’t be teaching this fall, but didn’t provide any further details on the decision, such as who made the decision, or whether the justice would return to teaching in future semesters.
The U.S. Supreme Court didn’t respond to a request for comment. Maggs couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. A Strong Conservative Voice
Meanwhile, the GW Law’s list of instructors no longer includes Thomas. Law school administrators previously resisted the call to remove the justice from the teaching position because of his opinion on abortion.
On June 24, Thomas joined in a 6-3 conservative majority to overrule the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, which had legalized abortion at a national level. […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
