Former President Donald Trump's account shared a video on social media Monday that referred to a "unified Reich" among possible developments if he were to win re-election in November, drawing criticism from the Biden campaign.

Trump's account posted a 30-second video to his Truth Social platform on Monday afternoon that asked, "what happens after Donald Trump wins?" and "what's next for America?"

The background is made up of hypothetical newspaper front pages with headlines including "BORDER IS CLOSED " 15 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS DEPORTED" and "ECONOMY BOOMS." Twice in the clip, slightly blurred text appears beneath the headlines that reads: "Industrial strength significantly increased ... driven by the creation of a unified Reich."

And now we have Justice Clarence Thomas, on the 70th anniversary of the landmark case, 'Brown v Board of Education', claiming that it was judicial overreach by the Court, making this claim in his concurrence of this week's Court ruling which allows South Carolina to use a Congressional map which all of the lower courts had agreed was formulated to explicitly dilute the minority vote in the state. Thomas claimed that the Court's "extravagant uses of judicial power" to end racial segregation in the 1950s and 60s was misguided despite the 9-0 ruling in Brown, which declared that separate but equal was unconstitutional. You can't help but wonder if somewhere along the line, Thomas himself didn't benefit from this ruling. After all, he's freely admitted that he would not have gotten into Yale Law School if it had not been for the university's affirmative action program, another concept which he's fought against ever since he made it to the high Court.

I've heard that there's activity in some communities with respect to the Brown decisions where they hope that a case could be made to bring it before the Court once again, while the conservative bias remains intact. And that's not the only long held precedent that well-funded groups out there are focusing on, including Griswold, Lawrence and perhaps even Loving, which would really be ironic, particularly with respect to Thomas.

With that in mind, you have to ask yourself, why did Thomas even bring up the Brown decision in this latest case? Was he sending some sort of message or was he laying the groundwork with a citation that could be referenced in some future case which was challenging Brown?
