Kavanaugh Battle Revealed the Left's Rage Over Reason Mentality

Kavanaugh Battle Revealed the Left's Rage Over Reason Mentality

Christine Blasey Ford was passionate and sincere in her testimony in front of the Senate Judicary Committee. She was a sympathetic witness that evoked genuine emotion from many of those who watched.

But despite her sincerity in the end it was her credibility that failed the test. There was simply no one, anywhere, that gave her story of alleged sexual assault at the hands of a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh even an inkling of corroboration. Nobody. Even her "best friend" from high school said despite her inclination to believe Ford, that she has never even met Kavanaugh and could not substantiate the accusations.

Make no mistake, none of that matters to activists on the left because they simply do not care. They don’t care whether or not the scurrilous allegations are true or not. The only thing they care about is preventing anyone they perceive as a threat in any way be blocked from sitting on The United States Supreme Court no matter how thoroughly qualified they may be.

With the thought of a firm majority of the court being Constitutional Conservatives the wheels came off for the left. The targeting of Senators intensified. The rage spilled into the streets and filled the halls of the Senate office building. Protesters were arrested, Hollywood was mobilized to vilify and denigrate Kavanaugh. He was demonized for his "white privilege" and his upbringing. Those screaming loudest seem to ignore the fact that his primary accuser, Dr. Ford was also the product of a high-end private single gender high school. Facts just don’t matter when power is at stake.

What has been demonstrated by Democrats across the nation and protesters in the streets is that none of them care about the truth. The truth is there is no evidence at all to support the allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, or Julie Swetnick who made the most outrageous allegations of Kavanaugh participating in almost weekly rape parties with his friends during his summers in high school.

It is rage over reason. It doesn’t matter what the truth is but rather how these people "feel" about such allegations of sexual violence. “We believe Dr. Ford. We believe victims,” they declare over and over again. They have no evidence but they believe her anyway. There is nothing to support their position except their feelings and emotions.

It really makes it look like the children are trying to take control of the country. We cannot allow rage to rule over reason for if we do the republic is certainly doomed.

Facts do matter no matter how emotional one side or the other becomes. We have a presumption of innocence in America for very good reasons. You cannot destroy someone just by pointing a finger at him or her. At least that is the way it is supposed to be.

I think many of those on the raging left will given that explanation again at the polls on November 6 but I doubt they will hear that either. After all they don’t "feel" they are wrong about any of it. Just ask them and they will surely scream that in your face while demanding you listen and agree — or else.

What will they do when they wake up and realize the Republicans have held the House and added several seats to their majority in the Senate?

I would not expect them to examine their arguments because they don’t actually have a rational one on most topics. They won’t try to figure out why their demands are being rejected wholesale especially in states like Indiana, North Dakota, and Florida. Most of them couldn’t find Muncie or Bismark on a map anyway so why would those places matter?

What I do expect is for the radical left to become more so. In doing so, they will be rejected more and more by Americans but their tactics will turn ever more dark and dangerous. They will escalate their attacks in the belief that somehow they will win the day. They will not.

It is my belief that Americans are better than this. It is my belief that reason will prevail over the rage but it is going to get even uglier along the way. Keep that in mind if Ruth Bader Ginsburg leaves the court while Donald Trump is still President and Republicans are in control of the Senate. I’m not sure even an epic speech by Senator Susan Collins will have an impact in that volatile environment.

You have been warned.
