Letter: Kavanaugh coverage an attack

To the Editor:

If Senate Democrats and their media allies manage to destroy Brett Kavanaugh, they will bring America one step closer to a new, liberal style of totalitarianism.

The Democratic campaign to block Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, based on a hazy, uncorroborated, decades-old assault allegations, pushes our nation toward totalitarianism.

An [initially] anonymous accusation surfaced at the 11th hour, seemingly calculated to strike terror into the hearts of Kavanaugh and his family members and supporters.

Democrats know this is an accusation that’s impossible to rebut. Senate Democrats are demanding the FBI look into the allegations first before the Judiciary Committee holds a hearing. But Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a far left-wing Democrat college professor, can’t 1) remember the time or 2) location of the alleged high school-age incident 36 years ago. Furthermore, a FBI probe is not warranted or legal given the lack of a federal crime.

The leftist liberal media treats the mere existence of an accusation as proof of its veracity.

Senate Dems have settled on the ugliest means available, even by the standards of the body that added the verb “Borking” to our political vocabulary. The question is: Why have Republican high-court nominations brought out the worst from the left, going back to the Ronald Reagan era?

Leftist liberals understand their major cultural victories of the past half-century are democratically illegitimate. Not a single one was won at the ballot box, going back to the Supreme Court’s 1965 Griswold decision, which recognized a constitutional right to contraceptives. From abortion to gay marriage, plus a host of less titillating issues, modern liberalism has lived by the court. And liberals fear their cause will die by the court. It’s all about power.

Unless, that is, they block conservative encroachments into the judiciary by all means necessary.

It is imperative for the health of American democracy to resist the liberal ruthlessness that is on display in the halls of the Senate. It is imperative that we make our voices heard in November. We must vote – no matter what.
