Once again, Democrats are desperate. Once again, they’re grasping at straws. But to be fair, they do this sort of thing on a regular basis, especially when they’re scared. And right now they are downright terrified of the mere possibility of losing their ideological sway over the Supreme Court. There’s a reason for that, but we’ll get to it in a minute.
You may remember that I recently discussed the Left’s hysterical hatred of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a man who openly opposes things like abortion and gay marriage. It should be no secret at all why they utterly detest him. Moreover, the man has the full support and backing of President Trump, so as far as liberals are concerned, Kavanaugh might as well be Satan incarnate. In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if that’s the next allegation they attempt to levy against him: “Shocking new documents prove Brett Kavanaugh was once formerly Lucifer, the Prince of Darkness.” Indeed, such a headline would make just about as much sense as what leftists are doing now.
As you’ve undoubtedly heard, the final confirmation hearings are drawing to a close and frenzied Democrats have concocted an elaborate fable of sexual misconduct (read: alleged misconduct) which apparently occurred during the judge’s days as a teenager in high school. Yes, they are actually reaching back to his high school days to try to find smear material. The New Yorker has released a report citing an unnamed woman who initially (and conveniently) refused to go on record with her outlandish claims:
The woman, who has asked not to be identified, first approached Democratic lawmakers in July, shortly after Trump nominated Kavanaugh. The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was a high school student at Georgetown Prepatory School, in Bethesda, Maryland, and the woman attended a nearby high school. In the letter, the woman alleged that, during an encounter at a party, Kavanaugh held her down, and that he attempted to force himself on her. She claimed in the letter that Kavanaugh and a classmate of his, both of whom has been drinking, turned up the music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself. Although the alleged incident took place decades ago and the three individuals involved were minors, the woman said that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her, and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result.”
This woman has since been identified as Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, and — as you can see for yourself — Ms. Ford cannot even remember when, where or even particularly how Kavanaugh and his friend (Mark Judge) attempted to allegedly rape her three decades ago. The only “facts” we know is that they were all immature, intoxicated teenagers at some random party. Ford waited until 2012 to tell her personal therapist all about the traumatic event and then subsequently reached out to a few Democratic politicians and lawmakers who conveniently sat on this information until Kavanaugh’s nomination proceedings were certain. Of course, we are told that this is all grounds to disqualify him from a seat on the Highest Court in the Land.
No. It’s not. The truth is that these Democrats are engaging in some of the most embarrassingly pathetic smear tactics in the Washington political playbook, despite the fact that 65 women who knew Kavanaugh during high school have recently signed a public document vouching for his character and honor. The Left is frantically doing anything they can to retain control of the Supreme Court because they know that a conservative majority would utterly obliterate any chance of furthering the liberal progressive agenda in our culture. This has been — and always will be — the Left’s ultimate goal and longterm strategy. And, as we’ve seen with the Kavanaugh drama, they are willing to go to any lengths to accomplish it, even if it means brutally maligning the character of a decent, respectable and highly qualified man based on unfounded, unsubstantiated claims from over 30 years ago.
One has to wonder why they are so terrified of him. For God’s sake, Kavanaugh is just one man. He cannot singlehandedly undo the horrific political, moral and spiritual effects that decades of progressivism has wrought upon our society.
And even if indeed he is found to have behaved recklessly as a teenager, this is still not reason enough to disqualify him from service. Plenty of adult human beings in their fifties have proven themselves capable of leaving their teenage immaturities behind and becoming well-rounded, contributing members of society. (Believe it or not, there are those of us who still believe in redemption.) I’d be willing to bet that if we were to conduct investigations into the early years of every liberal who has ever served on the Court — or every Democrat politician in our nation — we might find a few similar stories of irresponsible behavior. This is not a justification or excuse for Kavanaugh’s [alleged] actions. But, it does provide important perspective to a situation that must be viewed within the framework of its proper context.
And that context is this: The Left is so desperate to cling to its control over cultural indoctrination — with the Supreme Court as one of its primary weapons — that it no longer cares how low it has to stoop or how much it has to embarrass itself to carry out its perverse ideological agenda. God help us.
