Media leftists have poured out their vitriol against U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, leveling the charge that he might well be a child molester, and attacking his children in a cartoon.
With the campaign to paint him as mad gang rapist and teenage criminal genius losing steam, the Left needed a new tactic: depict Kavanaugh as a raging college drunk and ill-tempered goon.
In other words, he’s a dangerous man without the necessary “judicial temperament” to sit on the Supreme Court.
The cartoons came from a leftist named Chris Britt, who draws for Creators.com. He published two particularly vile pieces, one featuring Kavanaugh’s daughters, the other featuring the judge’s calendars.
The first features a little girl kneeling at her bed saying her nighttime prayers. “Kavanaugh’s Daughter Says Another Prayer,” it explains. Then comes what Britt thought was a funny punchline: “Dear God, forgive my angry, alcoholic father for sexually assaulting Dr. Ford.”
The drawing is a direct strike at Kavanaugh’s 10-year-old daughter. On Thursday, during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where Christine Blasey Ford leveled her unsubstantiated and suspiciously foggy attempted rape charge, Kavanaugh told the worthies of the Senate that his daughter said the Kavanaughs should pray for Dr. Ford.
“I intend no ill will to Dr. Ford and her family,” Kavanaugh said. “The other night, Ashley and my daughter, Liza, said their prayers. And little Liza — all of 10 years old — said to Ashley, ‘We should pray for the woman.’ It’s a lot of wisdom from a 10-year old. We mean — we mean no ill will.”
Apparently, that is not the case with cartoonist Britt.
Before that, Britt delivered a cartoon ridiculing Kavanaugh’s high-school calendar that all but proved he couldn’t have done what Ford accused him of doing.
Britt turned that evidence into a salacious put down: “Read Bible then drank 25 beers! Stud!!” the first entry said. “Dropped my pants at school to show some chicks my ... you know what!” another said. A third: “Held some stupid girl down and groped her!!! Covered her mouth with my hand!!!”
Another for the heart of why the Left opposes Kavanaugh: “Read Bible again! Dreamed of being on the Supreme Court! Overturn Roe v. Wade! Beer!!!!!”
The worst two, however were these: “Watched gang rape!” and then “Watched another gang rape!”
Claim: Kavanaugh Would Molest Girls
Radical leftists even turned Kavanaugh’s love of coaching girls’ basketball against him.
Kavanaugh had testified that he coaches “because I know that a girl’s confidence on the basketball court translates into confidence in other aspects of life. I love coaching more than anything I’ve ever done in my whole life. But thanks to what some of you on this side of the committee have unleashed, I may never be able to coach again.”
And that is exactly what at least one sports columnist had suggested, turning a point of pride with Kavanaugh against him. To its credit, USA Today retracted this awful implication.
“Brett Kavanaugh testified the other day that he might never coach girls’ basketball again,” Erik Brady wrote. “He shouldn’t — at least not until further investigation has concluded. The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around.”
In other words, even if Kavanaugh is confirmed, basketball coaching is out because of a scurrilous attempted rape charge. This is the magisterial opinion of a man whose greatest accomplishment is warming a seat in a sports arena.
Anyway, the leftist commentariat piled on. Frank Rich, a former theater critic for the New York Times, who often writes about things he knows nothing about, tweeted this opinion: “Kavanaugh’s bragging about coaching girls’ basketball is troubling in retrospect.”
Molly Ball, a writer for Time magazine, unbosomed herself of this one: “Ford’s charge shattered Kavanaugh’s carefully crafted tableau, calling into doubt the image he projected. The row of young girls, legs bare in their private-school skirts, looked different now.”
The problem for all these individuals is this: The prosecutor who examined Ford on Thursday said her own witnesses “refuted” and “failed to corroborate” her claims, which were riddled with lapses in memory.
Ford also lied about being afraid to fly, and has collected almost $750,000 through Go Fund Me.
Julie Swetnick, who claims Kavanaugh is a gang rapist, has been thoroughly discredited.
