As the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has become an utter debacle, now interminably delayed by vague and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct from more than three decades ago, the liberal media and Hollywood celebrities predictably have sided with Democrats against the judicially conservative judge.
It has become patently obvious that the left has summarily dismissed Kavanaugh’s repeated and strong denials, tossing aside the societal foundations of due process and the presumption of innocence to instead smear him as a “rapist” deserving of cruel punishment, as if he had been convicted of such heinous crimes in a court of law.
Case in point of this development was ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel’s Monday monologue, in which the sanctimonious comedian with his own sordid history regarding sexual misconduct and women jokingly suggested that Kavanaugh’s “pesky penis” be cut off if he were confirmed to the Supreme Court, presumably so it wouldn’t cause him any further trouble.
Kimmel began by laying out the situation as he saw it up until that point Monday night and playing a clip from Kavanaugh’s interview on Fox News in which he had admitted to being a virgin through high school and into his college years.
“Wow,” said Kimmel after the clip. “So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he can be ‘The Bachelor.'”
Kimmel then noted that Kavanaugh said he kept calendars from his high school years that show he was out of town for much of the summer in 1982 when he is alleged to have assaulted liberal California professor Christine Blasey Ford.
“What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements? No wonder he was a virgin,” Kimmel said.
The late-night host proceeded to play a clip of President Donald Trump expressing his full and continued support for Kavanaugh and decrying how “unfair” and “unjust” it was for the nominee to be hit at the last minute with allegations from more than 30 years ago “coming out of the woodwork.”
“Spoken like a man who has people coming out of the woodwork from 30 years ago,” Kimmel said.
“But I think there is a compromise here, here me out on this,” he continued. “So, Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, OK. But in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone.”
After receiving a mixture of laughter and groans, Kimmel said, “No? That’s not good? I thought I had a solution there for a minute.”
Kimmel essentially just called for the penectomy of Kavanaugh in response to unproven allegations, which is nothing short of disgusting and absolutely abominable in light of our centuries of jurisprudence tradition that dictates an accused individual is innocent until proven guilty.
Furthermore, Kimmel’s “compromise” solution — that Kavanaugh be confirmed to the court in exchange for the loss of his penis — would seem to suggest that Kavanaugh is innocent of the allegations, as a person truly guilty of these kinds of allegations would have no business sitting on the court at all, sans penis or not.
As an aside, one can only wonder if Kimmel would apply this “compromise” solution to any of the number of liberal men who’ve been credibly accused of sexual misdeeds, such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Bill Cosby, Tavis Smiley, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer or his friend and fellow comedian Louis C.K.
All this disgusting monologue from Kimmel proves is that he is committed to the left and no longer cares a wit about the presumption of innocence or proper due process … so long as the accused is a conservative or Republican.
We imagine his tune would quickly change if he were the one facing unsubstantiated allegations of unprovable misconduct from several decades ago.
