Ruth Marcus and others at the Washington Post who led the effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life based on unsubstantiated allegations know that what they did was evil.
The left seems to prefer demonizing the right to confronting the facts. That may be because, as Margaret Thatcher once famously observed, the facts of life are conservative.
God-willing, Brett Kavanaugh will serve on the court for a long time and his name will be on rulings. It was important for President Trump, as the leader of the United States, to apologize to protect the institution’s legitimacy.
Brett Kavanaugh has been libeled and slandered. For that the law offers redress. He should sue Ford and the Washington Post. For $20 million. Each.
Between now and November 6, Christine Blasey Ford’s case will continue to crumble—and it may well bury several Democrat politicians or party operatives in the process.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh has the 50 votes needed to secure his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court after a brutal character assassination campaign.
All it took was Democrats’ treatment of Brett Kavanaugh over the last few weeks to turn me into that elusive creature: a minority, immigrant woman who supports Republicans.
If Kavanaugh is innocent of sexual assault, then those who eagerly condemned him are guilty of slander, bias, and poor judgment. Thus, they have to believe that Kavanaugh is a monster
Those trying to beat every relationship Brett Kavanaugh has ever had to death have sure come up with a lot of ways to suddenly and absurdly polarize everything he’s ever done.
Vilification is a form of psychological terrorism. Because the fury displayed by those leveling the charges is so relentless and uncompromising, it carries its own threat.
I shake with fury when I think about how, in the Democrats’ dishonest and despicable rhetoric, a man of the highest integrity is already an all-but-proven rapist.
Perhaps an apt metaphor for ritual defamation is the gang rape of one’s character and good name. This episode represents a rape of the rule of law, and of Brett Kavanaugh’s character.
The calculus isn’t complicated. Republicans can stand up to vile Democrat smears and confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, or they can give in and kiss their congressional majorities goodbye.
If we leave weighing the evidence behind for punishing people based on a ‘reasonable suspicion,’ the left will increase its use of character assassination.
A Senate star chamber full of grandstanding senators on both sides will not elucidate what happened four decades ago, when all people involved were minors, and the accuser is unclear on the details.
Grab a piece of paper and make a hash mark every time you hear a progressive make a beeline for one of the Four Big Slurs rather than acknowledge a legitimate counter-position.
The solution to bad speech is not more speech when nobody agrees on the ground rules. We cannot have a marketplace of ideas without rules of engagement.
