The teacher who suggested killing U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh isn’t teaching anymore. But Kavanaugh wasn’t the only target: GOP senators have been the subject of a harassment campaign since at least early September.
The author of New Yorker’s hit piece on Brett Kavanaugh admitted that she and collaborator Ronan Farrow didn’t know whether the accusations they published were true, and that her goal was fingering Kavanaugh with a “pattern” of behavior.
Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp said Kavanaugh’s demeanor turned her off to the federal judge. Maybe, but it didn’t turn off Senator Susan Collins, or, apparently, the four women whom Kavanaugh recently hired as clerks.
As if midterm machinations weren’t enough, leftists, screaming unfairness, appear to want the American political system rent root and branch.
As expected, the usual suspects exploded in fury because Trump declared Kavanaugh innocent of the scurrilous, uncorroborated, and ultimately refuted accusations that failed to derail his ascendency to the court.
Alan Dershowitz, the famed leftist civil-liberties lawyer who defended O.J. Simpson, says the American Civil Liberties Union has lost it way.
If the Democrats fail to win the House of Representatives as pollsters confidently predict, more violence might well be ahead.
Promises of payback, retribution, infliction of pain, and exaction of revenge are hardly likely to help the Democrats flip the houses of Congress in November.
