Emmy Awards Message Shows It's Not About Truth, Just Stopping Kavanaugh

Share

In light of the sexual assault accusation made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the wife of an Emmy-nominated Netflix series director turned up at Monday night’s Emmy Awards in Los Angeles with the message “Stop Kavanaugh” written her arm — a graphic illustration of what really matters to liberals today.

Kavanaugh’s accuser, California professor Christine Blasey Ford, claims the now Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s — when both were in high school — but only recently came forward with her allegation.

Of course, Kavanaugh sharply denied the allegations.

“I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said in a statement issued Monday. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”

The allegation is virtually impossible to prove or disprove so long after the alleged event took place, and there are discrepancies between the accuser’s claims and her therapist’s notes on the event, as attorney and conservative commentator David French has pointed out at National Review.

And that just highlights the fragility of human memories when it comes to a question so long in the past, French wrote.

Recalling his own experience as a young lawyer, French wrote, he was often struck by how two individuals can honestly believe they think they can remember the truth, but are simply wrong.

“It didn’t take long for me to realize that more often than not both sides believed their own stories, and the longer the case dragged on, the more they hardened in their positions,” he wrote. “You’re constantly on a quest for the sword that slays the legal beast — corroborating evidence.”

But corroboration isn’t on the Democrats’ minds when it comes to the Kavanaugh accusation. Someone who is concerned with the truth would want solid evidence — or least something more solid than allegedly suppressed memories being dredged up decades after the alleged fact — before championing belief in such a story.

But it seems like the left is only concerned with stopping Kavanaugh.

The message “Stop Kavanaugh” was worn on the arm of Sarah Sophie Flicker, the wife of “GLOW” director Jesse Peretz, according to CNN.

The message might seem strange, considering Kavanaugh is highly qualified and has an impeccable record. If Flicker was concerned with sexual assault, a message like “Stop sexual assault” would be more appropriate. But that wouldn’t suit the Democrat agenda.

When it does suit the agenda, however, Democrats have no problem giving themselves a pass.

Democrats have stayed relatively quiet about Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, whose former girlfriend, Karen Monahan, claimed Ellison sent her threatening text messages and once dragged her off a bed by her feet, according to Fox News.

The accusations against Ellison also have more evidence than those against Kavanaugh. Monahan said she has recent medical records from Ellison’s attacks.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” Monahan wrote on Twitter, “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

You don’t see many Democrats with the message “Stop Ellison” on their arms.

Democrats are not concerned with the truth.

They are only concerned with stopping Kavanaugh at all costs.
