Letís Hope Justice Kavanaugh Avenges This Disgusting Democrat Slander
Townhall.com ^ | August 17, 2018 | Kurt Schlichter

Posted on 09/17/2018 3:31:49 AM PDT by Kaslin

There is this thing called due process, where someone accused of something has a right to defend himself, except liberals don’t like it very much. They sometimes play lip service to it, but only when it has to do with covering for the criminals they consider victims of society. You Normals are “society,” by the way. But regardless, when it is politically useful to let super-convenient accusers trash people from a distance by feeding talking points to eager media allies, forget due process. Allowing someone to effectively challenge fake charges gets in the way of the liberal elite’s ability to slander good people for cheap political gain with fake charges. We can’t have that.

The sliming of Brett Kavanaugh by a Bernie donor is disgusting and disgraceful, and if Democrats had any shred of decency they would hang their heads in shame and spend the next two months ahead of the midterms doing penance to atone for their scummy act of cheap political theater. But they don’t, so they won't.

That’s why I hope that after he is confirmed, Justice Kavanaugh remembers and spends the next 35 years making the liberals sorry they ever pulled these skeevy shenanigans.

Let's review. As I write this, a liberal who doesn't have the moral courage to subject herself to cross-examination is presuming to besmirch the integrity of someone who has never had his integrity questioned in any serious way. Well, it has been besmirched in an unserious way, by T-Bone’s buddy Spartacus as well as by that idiot Kamala Harris, but they didn't lay a finger on him because the dumbnamic duo’s allegations were such transparent baloney.

But now we need to pause the confirmation so we can further investigate her inconsistent claim (Was it four dudes? Two?) that an ancient relic/senator sat on for three months? Or something. Sounds legit. Whatev.

Victim status, whether based upon truth or lies – because people do lie, and all the time – does not give you any special privileges or special rights. Instead, it gives you duties and obligations, whether that is cosmically fair or not. See, if you propose to inflict damage upon someone, even if justifiable, you bear the burden of proof. You have to prove it; the accused doesn’t have to disprove your amorphous innuendos. You have the duty to back up your claims, in public, and subject yourself to the greatest engine for the ascertainment of truth humanity has yet invented, cross-examination by a zealous advocate for the accused who is doing his best to show that you can’t be trusted.

Take the stand and the heat, or shut up.

Is it hard? Yeah? Is it tough on real victims? It sure is. Is it unfair? Maybe, but the only people who think life can ever be fair are little kids and socialists, and only fools design their society around the insights of either bunch.

Maybe some tough cross-examination of Asia Argento back when she was a #MeToo heroine might have prevented the activists from going all in on someone who now seems to belong squarely in the abuser column. People who tell you that “You have to believe the victim!” are afraid you’ll spoil their lynching if you discover the alleged victim is lying. When people refuse to allow the one thing that centuries of experience has shown to be the best way to discover the truth, due process including the cross-examination of the accuser, then it’s reasonable to assume that they are not interested in the truth.

Is she hiding from examination because she’s afraid that people will challenge her claims and maybe find exculpatory evidence? This mystery woman appears to admit to mental health issues, which allegedly stem from this ambiguous, third of a century-old alleged encounter, but who knows? We don’t know, but if you really wanted to know the truth, wouldn’t you want to?

Her claims must be challenged if we intend to keep pretending we are seeking justice. Let's be clear. It is a good thing, a necessary thing, a critical thing, to allow a tough advocate for the accused to forcefully challenge anyone making a devastating accusation against someone else by forcing them to prove their claim. No one has the right to expect people to go easy on them when they are saying something that can have such a dramatic effect on another person’s reputation and life. It's not pleasant, but it is absolutely necessary if we are going to figure out the truth.

I know. I do it for a living as a trial lawyer. I intentionally, and on purpose, ask hard questions of people claiming to be victims of various wrongs that are designed to elicit a response that demonstrates to my juries that the person on the stand is not telling the truth. And the other side gets to do the same of the people I represent. That’s a good thing.

It all seems so convenient that California’s doddering, crusty senator (remarkably, DiFi is the least stupid of California's two senators, and she's astonishingly stupid) decided to announce this claim in such a manner that Kavanaugh has no way to defend himself. Maybe the red Chinese spy Feinstein had on staff for 20 years gave her some pointers.

This kind of garbage is galling because it's indecent and scummy, but it's much worse than that because of the effect it has on our society. It destroys respect for what should be our shared norms and values. It's become very clear that if you get crosswise with the liberal elite – even if you are demonstrably part of the elite’s conservative faction – the elite is going to do everything it can, without regard to trifles like morals or scruples, to destroy you

As my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracyexplains, we are in a conflict between an elite that is threatened by the outraged mass of normal Americans who elected Donald Trump in response to the elite’s long track record failure. The elite’s push-back demonstrates that Normals have accurately assessed that the rules the elite points to are only meant to apply to the Normals. The elite may talk a good game about the rules and norms and stuff, but it does not consider itself bound by them. So, this kind of accusation is fine. Innuendo is fine. Slander is fine.

They have to preserve their power and position, you know. And that imperative transcends your bourgeoise morality.

Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy were all unavailable for comment.

But do you think Normals are just going to stand there and accept that the rules are applied only to them, while the very people charged with preserving and enforcing those rules blithely ignore them? Do they really think that a double standard society is possible and stable over the long term? It’s not – check out my novels about what happens to America at the bottom of that slippery slope.

Luckily, the Republicans are getting woke to the okey-done, and recognize this as a Hail Satan play by Democrats who realize that the Brett Kavanaugh Express is rolling toward the confirmation station. Heck, even some of the Fredocon sissies are upset by their liberal elite pals and are taking the side of Normals for once, so you know it’s undeniably outrageous.

Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed. And when he is a justice on the Supreme Court, I hope he remembers what these people did to him. I hope he gives them the same kind of lesson in the power of payback that Clarence Thomas has delivered for nearly three decades. As Militant Normals observes, pain is a great teacher, and the elite needs to learn.

To hell with the left and their filthy lies.

In every political sense:

It’s just so wrong, so unfair to do this. How do people live with themselves after the destruction they cause to others?

The release of this slanderous accusation is designed to give cover to democrat senators in red states to vote against Kavanaugh.

Polygraph her and when it is proven she lied, prosecute her. Personally, I would waterboard her.

I’m waiting for the claim of death threats to provide the reason she needs to stay in hiding and can’t come to DC to testify.

They are not that smart at this point. It is an act of desperation to shield them from the onslaught that is beginning against them.

Exactly. They get away with this crap because Repubs do not fight back other than deny. What I want to know is how exactly does the law work when it comes to slander and libel against politicians and in this case a judge? I would imagine any of them could file suit.

"It’s just so wrong, so unfair to do this. How do people live with themselves after the destruction they cause to others?"

To the fascist left, the end justify the means. While power and control are the goals of the elite, it is frightening that they can mobilize the unwashed masses who genuinely are true believers.

The problem with denying it is that “it” might well have happened, as any man who was once a 17-year old boy knows perfectly well.

It’s like Russia “collusion”. There’s no actual crime involved. You are left to imagine what “it” actually is. So “it” happened? Was she raped? No. Was she injured? No.

Do 17 year old boys and girls get their signals crossed when alone together and free of adult supervision? Gee, I never heard of that /s.

Mitch McConnell is useless except for getting Trump’s judges through. If McConnell cannot wrangle Collins, Murkowski, Flake etc into voting for a quick confirmation, then he is weak and stinks to high heaven. McConnell has to keep them in line!

So if nothing else, McConnell must do it for the Koch Brothers, who I am sure have no problems with Trump’s judicial appointments.

Republicans better support Kavanaugh 2000% or else future candidates will be tough to find due to last minute Democrat smears

I don’t like the implication that the woman will be more credible if she allows herself to be questioned. She should be called out for the fraud that she is as well as those giving her (and her claims) any credibility at all.

Roy Moore has become a verb. It worked on him so they’ll keep using the tactic. Republicans better man up quickly and shut this farce down.

I. Hate. Liberals!

Is there a double standard?

Bill Clinton had credible rape charges against him. Democrat women didn’t care. Press sluts asked for kneepads... Feminist hag Gloria Steinem said “the first grope is free.”

Remember Whoopi Goldberg’s defense of Roman Polanski - that sexually raping a drugged 13 year old child wasn’t ‘rape-rape’?

I And don’t forget, feminist hag Gloria Steinem said “the first grope is free.”

Good one - and remember Whoopi Goldberg’s defense of Roman Polanski - that sexually ‘doing’ a drugged 13 year old child wasn’t ‘rape-rape’?

I’ll bet the thugs who write for the Washington Post didn’t think raping a drugged child was ‘rape rape’ either... cause they usually side with any and all Hollywood liberals. The only reason they covered the ‘MeToo’ meme was they thought going to snare conservatives. It was too late to dump the meme when it turned out it was almost exclusively liberals doing the abuse... from Charlie Rose on up and down the media and Hollywood ranks.

The child Polanski raped didn’t just ‘think’ he wanted to rape her... the pervert DID rape her... and the ‘bigs’ in Hollywood didn’t give a damn. They gave the rapists a standing ovation ... And their press boys didn’t give a damn either.

So now we have a Republican man accused of nothing. The women ‘felt’ he wanted to take off her clothes. HE DID NOT TAKE OFF HER CLOTHES. AT WORST HE ‘PULLED’ AT HER CLOTHES. She ‘felt’ he wanted to rape her. HE DID NOT RAPE HER. Maybe he ‘felt’ things about her too... but ACTIONS COUNT MORE THAN ‘FEELINGS’...

The comparison to the Clarence Thomas confirmation is appealing to me. I look forward to a similar stellar record on the high court from Kavanaugh.
