I’m not sure what it is about the Kavanaugh story that has me in permanent state of anger, but it does. It has consumed my life for at least the last week; it is the last thing I think of at night and the first thing I think of in the morning. Perhaps it is the outrageous injustice of it all, perhaps it is one of those rare occasions where you see evil being used for blatant political ends: the ruthless destruction of an innocent man and his family. Perhaps it is because it exposes, once and for all, the media bias and prejudice against conservatives. But whatever it is I’m angry.
The outcome of these confirmation hearings will have implications far, far beyond what happens on the US Supreme Court. Already we are seeing the impact upon the culture, and as I always say, culture is king. In my last blog I explained how this is an out-and-out attack on the presumptions of innocence and due process. It is also an out-and-out attack on all white men who, we are to believe, are just rapists in waiting.
The hearings and the feminists who are furthering this injustice also represent an attack on women. This was my latest realisation when I saw a Newsweek headline saying that the Republicans had lost women for ever. Why’s that now, I asked myself?
Is it because we are all unthinking sheep, willing lemmings ready to dive off the cliff into the demonic, Leftist abyss below? To treat women as one big monolithic group is not only sexist, it is offensive.
But this is the end game of the Left: to manipulate women into thinking that all their interests lie in voting Left-wing. This is not because they might like Left-wing policies but because they are women, and only the Left can protect them from the big scary, white, male rapists out there.
Some have pointed out that just as men have mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and female friends and colleagues, and therefore will consider their interests as well as their own, women also have husbands, sons, brothers and male colleagues and don’t want to see their lives destroyed by one allegation.
But, in addition to having husbands and sons etc, women also have brains. And most of us use our brains. Can we please remember what the original women’s movement was about? Liberation, equality and the right not to be treated like dithering Victorian wallflowers who couldn’t think for themselves. Well, the feminists want the wallflowers back, women who cannot engage the brain and think for themselves.
This is not about being Left-wing or Right-wing. If you are a woman and lean Left because you want to see more money spent on health and education, higher taxes, and an end to the war of terror then fill your boots. If on the other hand you want a flat tax, educational vouchers, and boots in the ground in some sand war then that’s also up to you.
What we women cannot be are lemmings or sheep, terrified and terrorised by the rapists round the corner. We cannot let the Leftists, these maniacs, weaponise rape in order to lure women voters to vote Leftist. So no, I don’t believe all women, I believe the evidence because that is what sensible, adult, logical, clear-thinking people with a basic sense of decency and fairness do.
Finally, when I reflected upon the testimony of Dr Ford, it dawned on me that this is what all the extreme feminists want women to be. Here was a professional, adult woman of about 50 years with a PhD no less (as we are constantly reminded) speaking in a voice not dissimilar from my three-year-old daughter’s. Sort of whimpering, sort of not, recalling the grope/attempted rape/attempted unlawful killing (which is it?) that occurred around (we are not sure) 36 years ago.
The feminists rail that Dr Ford was presented like this because ‘women must be seen as likeable and credible’. I don’t think she was likeable and she certainly was not credible. But this is the old straw man argument of the feminists that hasn’t been true since the turn of the century. Are the matriarchs of northern England expected to behave like this, or indeed their cousins in Ireland? Were the women who helped settle the West expected to behave like this? Or course not. It is nonsense, nonsense true and true.
I have no doubt that this is how the Leftists who orchestrated this take-down view women: whimpering girls, so easily manipulated by this ridiculous story that they will be voting Democrat for the next 50 years. Even if Dr Ford said she flew home on a unicorn from that party, some women would believe her. I can’t help them.
But for the rest of you out there – the sensible ones, the ones who have not bought into this wicked show-trial hook, line and sinker: just beware of what’s going on here, and resist.
