It was an unfair and grueling process of confirmation hearings and unnecessary questioning that Judge Brett Kavanaugh had to endure. Unfounded accusation after malicious insinuation about his life as a teenager and college student were made. The Democrats, many of them anyway, without anything substantial upon which to base their claims, tried to make Kavanaugh out to be a misogynistic party boy who had his way with women.
Although he vehemently denied the accusations, leftists couldn’t have cared less as they predictably played the sexist card over and over again like they usually do to those they don’t like. You see, when Democrats don’t have proof of anything, they’ll do anything.
When it was clear they had nothing to pin on Kavanaugh, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced she had a report which contained information about a sexual assault Kavanaugh committed over three decades ago. The report was given to Feinstein six weeks earlier but she chose to keep it confidential, long enough until it was evident that she needed to use it to try to prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed.
The mainstream media, of course, did what they usually do, took the unverified story and ran with it, giving undeserved credibility to the accuser.
It was a coordinated attempt to thwart Kavanaugh from taking a seat on the United States Supreme Court. Because he was President Trump’s nominee, and because the left hates Trump, Kavanaugh became their prime target. With the help of a complicit mainstream media, many in the public developed a misguided anger toward a very qualified, decent man. They didn’t know a thing about him but because he’s conservative about to be confirmed they threw temper-tantrums.
This presented a dangerous situation because, unfortunately, the left is easily manipulated into violence. Thankfully, Judge Kavanaugh never gave up, got over that hurdle and was eventually confirmed as the next United States Supreme Court Justice.
Democratic senators, representatives, much of Hollywood and the mainstream media are guilty of besmirching Justice Kavanaugh and should take at least some responsibility for the threats of violence he and his family received. It is imperative that all those culpable are held to account.
Additionally, those Senate Democrats who held up the beginning of the confirmation hearings need to be severely reprimanded and lose their committee seats. Those include Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dianne Feinstein and others. In the future there should be even harsher penalties for this kind of disruptive behavior. For indeed, elected officials should be held to a higher standard.
