Skip to comments.The new left wing fascist dog whistle- how dare Kavanaugh defend himself!
Posted on 09/30/2018 10:19:55 AM PDT by Starman417
Brett Kavanaugh has been the subject of some of the worst vitriol I have ever witnessed in my life as far as politics goes. His history could not be more exemplary yet those on the left have stooped so low as to call him "rapist" among other names. As if that wasn't bad enough, the same scurrilous morons who verbally flayed Kavanaugh and his family now express dismay that would dare defend himself and his family. It makes his temperament unsuitable for a SCOTUS judge, they now assert. This is now the current liberal dog whistle.
Judge Brett Kavanaughs raw, combative defense against a sexual assault allegation from decades ago may have saved his embattled nomination, but his angry, partisan words last week also may have damaged his ability to be seen as a fair justice on the nations highest court.
Kavanaugh said he wrote his statement, which he delivered Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, entirely on his own.
And unlike much of the nation, he said he did not watch the preceding, riveting testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who told the senators she was 100% certain a teenage Kavanaugh had drunkenly attacked her when they were high school students in suburban Maryland in the early 1980s.
Determined to clear his name, he did not just argue that Ford, whom he says he had barely known, had mistakenly identified him as the attacker she feared would rape her, or suffocate her by muffling her cries. Rather, he portrayed the accusation as a politically motivated attack by vengeful Democrats, arising from the frenzy on the left to blow me up and take me down.
At weeks end, Kavanaughs confirmation remained in some doubt. The Republican-led Senate bowed to pressure and postponed a confirmation vote for a week while the FBI conducts a limited investigation of the allegations against him by Ford and two other women.
Should he be confirmed, however, at a minimum his nationally televised remarks are likely to linger in Americans memories, further undercutting for many the notion that the high courts decisions reflect a fair, impartial reading of the Constitution, history and precedent and not the nine justices political leanings. In particular, Kavanaughs judicial temperament has been called into question. Maureen Dowd
Dianne Feinstein the Chinese spy:
Never mind his years of service. Never mind his 12 year tenure on the US Court of Appeals.
This is sickening.
Should the women making accusations always be believed in knee jerk fashion?

If he didn’t defend himself vigorously the Left would say he lacks emotions, is too calculated, cold and robotic to be a justice on the Supreme Court. He can’t win either way. The Left is never satisfied.
I don’t recall him ever saying he knew her at all.
bad faith actors acting in bad faith, what else is new
This is one of the oldest tricks in the left wing playbook. Make outrageous accusations and then project guilt because your opponent is acting “defensive”.
That hearing was a virtual gang rape of Kavanaugh, and its supporters are all gang rapists. Yes, I am borrowing the hyperbole of the Left.
The Los Angeles Times had a story yesterday that the basic premise was Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed even if the accusations are completely disproven, because the democrats and the left made him so angry with this accusations that he could now never be impartial.
The left is Satan. Literally.
Perhaps “KafkaTrapping” should be renamed to “KavanaughTrapping”: https://legalinsurrection.com/2013/09/kafkatrapping/
He said he knew her by name and they moved in the same circles. Both families were members of the same country club.
The dog whistles (AKA talking points) have been flying hot and heavy today. BTW if you haven’t seen Trump’s Feinstein impersonation from last nights rally, by all means watch it. I was too busy watching my Buckeyes defeating an exceptionally good Penn State team. One great game.
It was. It was awful!
I think there's a saying here, "If you're going to aim at the King, don't miss."

So vigorous self-defense when accused of a crime is proof of guilt to the LA slimes.
If you vigorously defend yourself, as a totally innocent man would, you lack the temperament to be a impartial judge. If you fail to defend yourself, you are as much as admitting your guilt.
But there is one thing clear. There is no way Judge Kavanaugh will be able to forgive and forget how he was treated by the democrats. If he should show a lack of sympathy for a democrat position that happens to come up in court, it will be the democrats’ fault. They did this, not he.
Ah yes, the childhood "Heads I win, Tails you lose" mantra. I honestly think that they thought that he would have withdrawn by now, that he would fold at the incessant attacks. Now they are scared that he will think about serving a cold dish when he is on the Supreme Court!
Just one prediction for this week, look for a breathless accusation against Judge Kavanaugh late in the week. Something to rattle Susan AND Lisa and try for further delays. If it works once keep at it, one of these mud pies has to stick!
Of course, liberals don’t believe women when they say abortions have caused them mental and physical injuries.
He has two little girls. This impacts their lives, too.

Flake jumped on it too. I am beginning to fear the worst.
