NARAL, the acronym for National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, is a key leftist player in the attempt to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The group that equates the death of reborn human babies with “choice,” has issued a statement saying the claim of a woman, suddenly coming forth with assault charges against a-then-high-school-age Kavanaugh “must be believed.” Not only that, but she is ”incredibly brave to do so. and must be treated with the respect and dignity that all survivors deserve.”
His accuser is a professor who initially made the charges anonymously and is now reveling in the spotlight. In 1991 Justice Clarence Thomas, also a conservative judicial nominee, was put through the same offensive sexual harassment wringer by Anita Hill, a woman’s studies and law professor who continued to have a working relationship with him, long before hurling the charges.
Judge Kavanaugh, 56, whose credentials are impeccable, has been a Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006. Previously, he served for as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to President George W. Bush. In the course of his career, he has been vetted six times with no allegations of misconduct surfacing. But those jobs weren’t on the nation’s highest court where liberals desire control.
In the wake of the “Me too” movement, allegations now carry the weight of fact. Men can be discredited without proof, losing their careers, reputations and sometimes, their families. But those are of little consequence when juxtaposed against the ever looming issue of the right to kill — babies. Nothing is so sacred as this go-to-the-mat matter.
Justice Clarence Thomas, the second black on the high court, who had the temerity to be a Republican, described his contemptible hearing in these words:
“This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.”
Kavanaugh will be put through the same garish spectacle because the radical left can’t abide another Republican on the Supreme Court. They and their allies will oppose him with all of the vigor they can muster.
Anita Hill had Janet Napolitano, a radical Arizonans know all too well, as her lead lawyer. Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser will have Senate Judiciary Committee members Kamala Harris, Lindsey Graham, Cory Booker and Jeff Flake working to take him down. Trump-hating showboater Flake, a lame duck soon to be out the senate door, has already called for delaying the vote until they hear from Kavanaugh’s previously silent accuser.
Judge Kavanaugh issued this statement today:
“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.” He stated he would speak to the Judiciary panel “in any way the committee deems appropriate” in order to “defend my integrity.”
