Kavanaugh: What Have We Learned?
So, Brett Kavanaugh is our next Supreme Court justice. It's all over now. What have we learned from the events of the past month?
Speaking only for myself, this debacle has done nothing to change my mind about our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media and the Democratic Party. (And yes, I realize those two things are the same thing.) Here are just a few of my biases that have been confirmed by this whole mess. If you don't know, now ya know:
1. Most of the media is actively working for the Democrats.
If I had any doubt about this, it was completely erased by the events of the past month. The only way any of it makes sense is if the press is eagerly doing the will of the Democrats.
Are the Dems accusing a Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, and even gang rape? Well then, the press will proceed under that assumption. They already know the accused is guilty, no matter how insane the accusation, so they'll dig up facts to match the theory. And if they can't find facts? Any facts at all? Well then, they'll just weave together rumor and conjecture until they hit their word count.
They're team players, and if you don't like their outright dishonesty, that's what you get for refusing to join them. They're better than us, which is why they're so baffled that we don't trust them.
2. The Democrats have no ideas, no principles, just tactics.
If you were under the misapprehension that the Dems were acting on principle, they were more than happy to shatter that illusion. Over and over, at every turn, they insisted that their treatment of Brett Kavanaugh was no different than what those evil Republicans did to Merrick Garland.
Even if you agree with that — and in order to make the comparison, you would have to quote a single Republican who ever accused Garland of organizing gang rapes — it's pretty stupid to admit that you're trying to destroy an innocent man's life for nothing more than revenge. The Dems wanted payback, and they didn't care how they got it. They didn't stop for one second to consider the ramifications of what they were doing. They were unmoored by principle and heedless of scruple. Attack, attack, attack.
3. Dems are angry, vindictive, and violent.
Republicans are getting death threats, and now they're even getting ricin in the mail. They're being doxed. Dems are screaming at them in elevators and hounding them whenever they go out in public.
All these intimidation tactics are happening barely a year after a Bernie Bro tried to assassinate Republicans at baseball practice and almost murdered Steve Scalise.
The Democrats cheer on this behavior, and the media makes excuses for it. Brett Kavanaugh's anger at being falsely accused is bad, and his opponents' anger at their inability to prove the accusations is good. It's as simple at that, in their minds.
4. The more loudly the Democrats claim to care about victims, the less they actually do.
Christine Blasey Ford is obviously a troubled woman. I believe she believes what she's saying, even if she's unable or unwilling to offer any proof whatsoever. She obviously has severe mental and emotional problems. Which is why it's sad to watch the Democrats exploit her pain, and the pain of a lot of other women, for political purposes. If the Dems really cared about victims, they wouldn't use these women and then throw them away.
Right now I'm politically homeless. I don't like or trust the Republicans any more than the Democrats. But if the Dems wanted to woo a RINO cuck NeverTrump traitor like me, they screwed up for the last time. I will never vote for another Democrat as long as I live. Not after seeing how they smeared the name of an innocent man because they saw him as a threat to their power. The Republicans were the only ones fighting for American principles here. If I'm ever tempted to vote Dem, I'll just remember what they did to Brett Kavanaugh. I'll remember how they exploited victims of sexual assault for the basest of political purposes.
I'm not going to gloat over Kavanaugh's confirmation*, but it's a relief. It's a major victory in the war for the truth. I'm glad that the Dems and their enablers didn't get away with their repulsive, dishonest behavior this time, but I don't look forward to seeing what they do next. They've all lost their minds, and the more their tactics backfire, the more reckless they become. I have no idea what's next, but we all know it ain't gonna be pretty.
It's going to be amazing to watch the 180-degree turn when Amy Coney Barrett is nominated. Then we'll see how much the Democrats really respect women.
