There is an issue at the center of the Kavanaugh hearing that the left is hoping you won’t notice.
In the era of #MeToo, the focus has been on sexual assault and the perpetual victimhood of America’s women.
This is of course perpetually wrapped up in Kavanaugh’s projected appointment to the Supreme Court for feminists, because they’re anticipating as soon is he is appointed all women will have to surrender private property, be forced out of their careers, and be fitted for their Handmaid Tale’s burkas. In other words, they’re worried he’ll be the vote that overturns Roe v. Wade so they might have to actually be a bit more careful about their sexual exploits.
That’s pretty much the same thing, right?
The issue that poses a much more serious threat to our freedom than banning abortion has to do with the proposition that we “believe all women.” In the eyes of #MeToo feminists, to believe all women is to unilaterally denounce sexual assault.
But to believe all women is to also disbelieve all men, which means that no one has the Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial anymore. Men or women.
Sarah Sanders hit this serious judicial concern on the nose in an appearance on Good Morning America Tuesday, as reported by The Daily Wire:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that Democrats are playing a “political game” with allegations of sexual misconduct by President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling the ploy “appalling.”
Sanders, appearing on “Good Morning America,” also decried the state of politics in the U.S. today.
“Brett Kavanaugh has asked for his voice to be heard in this process, too,” Sanders said. “Last I can remember, we’re still a country where you’re innocent until proven guilty — unless you’re a conservative Republican. It is absolutely shameful what the Democrats have done and the way they have turned this into complete political process.”
Sanders said that Democrats have ruined “multiple lives.”
“They want this to be a political game, and I think that the way they have operated in this is absolutely appalling,” Sanders said. “If anything has been appalling, it’s the way that they have gone after and used these people’s stories and their lives and exploited them for political gain.”
Sanders was asked whether Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University who claims Kavanaugh exposed himself at a freshman-year party, should be allowed to testify.
“Certainly we would be open to that, and that process could take place on Thursday,” Sanders said.
To affirm that her infamous boss feels the same way, Sanders added: “The president’s been clear, let them speak, but let’s also let Brett Kavanaugh speak, and let’s let him tell his side of the story before we allow allegations to determine his entire future.”
