Leftists outraged that Kavanaugh would tell his story on TV

Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley sat for a 20 minute interview last night on FOX News, where the Supreme Court nominee unequivocally denied the accusation that he sexually assaulted anyone. Ever.


Memo to liberals... this is why Donald Trump won.

Rich Lowry in the New York Post spells it out:

At least three key premises have been underlined by tawdry events of the last couple of weeks.

First, that good character is no defense. If you are John McCain, who genuinely tried to do the right thing and carefully cultivated a relationship with the media over decades, they will still call you a racist when you run against Barack Obama.

****


Second, that the media is an unremitting political and cultural adversary


****

Third, that politics isn’t just rough-and-tumble; it’s red in tooth and  claw. Process and norms are nice, but they go out the window as soon as  something important is at stake, like a potential fifth vote on the  Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.


Senate Democrats may delicately talk about the importance of norms  and civility on Sunday shows, but watch how they act. They sat on an  accusation throughout an extensive process of vetting and questioning a  nominee, then declared it dispositive evidence against his confirmation  when it leaked at the 11th hour. They delayed a hearing with Christine  Blasey Ford long enough to allow time for the second accuser to be  persuaded to come forward.

All of this plays into Trump’s support. Surely, a reason that the  president appealed to many Republicans in the first place, despite his  extravagant personal failings, was that they had decided that virtuous  men would get smeared and chewed up by the opposition’s meat grinder, so  why be a stickler for standards?

To Lowry's second point, the New York Times smeared Kavanaugh's high school friends - and an innocent woman - based on a fabrication by Maryland leftists.

Molly Hemingway dismantles the slander.

Victor David Hanson draws the parallels - and identical standards - between this proceeding and George Orwell's 1984...

In Orwell’s world of 1984 Oceania, there is no longer a sense of due  process, free inquiry, rules of evidence and cross examination, much  less a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Instead, regimented  ideology — the supremacy of state power to control all aspects of one’s  life to enforce a fossilized idea of mandated quality — warps  everything from the use of language to private life.

Meanwhile... the attorney for Christine Blasey Ford seems to be setting up a reason for her to bail on testifying before Congress on Thursday:

And Sen. Orrin Hatch calls out Democrats for their dishonest participation in the targeted destruction of Kavanaugh.



But, wait! There's more!

Here is the op-ed I mentioned yesterday on the show, describing how Democrats should have handled Ford's accusation against Kavanaugh.

When you hear leftists invoke "Merrick Garland" as a justifiable reason to destroy Kavanaugh, remind them of Miguel Estrada.

Screeching moonbat fascists accosted Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife last night, running the Hispanic man out of a restaurant in order to "smash racism." There's video.
