Tea Party activist and wife of Clarence Thomas spoke to anti-abortion activist Lila Rose who thinks President Obama is a tyrant for, in her view, trying to impose a secular government.

You know, it's a damn good thing these theocrats aren't in any positions of power or authority in this country, like higher political office or on the Supreme Court. What's that? Ginni Thomas is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas? Oh. Never mind.

Ginni Thomas recorded this interview with well-known anti-choice activist Lila Rose, who got her own start by working with Breitbart protégé and conservative activist James O’Keefe.

“Years from now when history books are written about this culture, what are they going to see, and how do we stop the erosion?,” Thomas asks Rose.

“This idea that the government is secular and we have our faith over here,” Rose moves her arms, gesturing. “No. Secular is somehow saying there’s no God, there’s no higher power, there’s no higher law,” Rose tells Thomas. “You can’t say that because then when you have a tyrant in power – which you often, sadly, do – and I believe there’s aspects of tyranny in who you have in power now – then whole groups of people, their rights are not respected, their rights are not protected and you have human rights abuses.”

Notice that Lila Rose says, “I believe there’s aspects of tyranny in who you have in power now.” Not “we,” but “you,” as if she doesn’t recognize that Barack Obama is her president too.
