That title could really be directed towards the entirety of the Left, but I will particularly set my sights on ABC’s “The View” hosts for something that at least one of their hosts said that I will promptly share with you.
On Thursday, upon learning that the FBI investigation did not find any sort of sexual misconduct, harassment or even come close to corroborating Dr. Ford’s claims of sexual assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the hosts of “The View” were, unsurprisingly, furious. Granted, that seems to be their perpetual mood given that they are Leftists and they hate everyone and everything that isn’t like them, but still.
NewsBusters covered this story, and in their article, they give the following context: “Referencing Don Jr.’s comments that men could be falsely accused, Whoopi lectured that men needed to trust in the system and should want thorough FBI investigations. Host Sunny Hostin added that women had to ‘teach their sons to respect women’ and ‘teach their sons about consent,’ before going on a tirade about how women’s ‘truth’ should be believed.”
This is what Hostin is quoted as having said: “I also think like you do, Whoopi, that women should be believed! Our daughters should be believed! Our sisters, our mothers. Since when is someone not saying, ‘This is my truth. This is what happened to me’ enough? I don’t understand that!”
Here’s the thing: there is a difference between believing a woman’s story and wanting to destroy someone’s life based entirely on the woman’s story.
Allow me to explain. There is such a thing as due process, despite what the Left wants to do. In due process, a woman’s (or anyone’s) claim is not enough to destroy someone’s life, be it sending them to jail or otherwise punishing the accused.
Hostin is basically asking: “since when is it not enough for a woman to say something happened to her to be believed?” The issue is not whether or not she is believable. The issue is whether or not what she says is the truth and whether or not she has evidence to prove her claims.
In asking this question AFTER the FBI investigation issued their report, Hostin isn’t simply talking about people not believing Ford, but rather about why Kavanaugh isn’t being punished for having been accused of what Ford says he did.
The precedent the Left wishes to create with the Kavanaugh case is that “all women should be believed” should be taken to mean “all women tell the truth and are right” when accusing someone of something. That is what I took Hostin to mean by that question. “Why isn’t Kavanaugh being punished? Why isn’t Ford’s testimony not enough to punish him?”
That is what she ultimately means by asking this question. The problem she has isn’t actually that Ford isn’t believed – she is. The problem is that Kavanaugh isn’t being punished just because they want him to be. And notice how she mentions “my truth”. Not “the truth”, but “my truth” as though truth is subjective.
But that’s beside the point. The point is that, in this Kavanaugh case, the Left wants to set the precedent that all women should be taken as telling the truth even if they don’t present evidence of their claims, and the man being accused should immediately be destroyed.
Hostin asks since when is the claim not enough to destroy someone? As far as I know, since the Magna Carta was signed in 1215.
One of the Magna Carta’s clauses (of the original 63) reads as follows: “No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land… To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.”
Basically, it’s a clause guaranteeing English subjects the right to justice and a fair trial. But of course, this is the Magna Carta, a British charter and constitution. We live in America, under different laws. Right? Well, the Founding Fathers and the Framers of the Constitution saw the Magna Carta as a great document for a free people to guard against oppression (if enforced). So they saw fit to add a similar clause to our 5th Amendment:
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
So if you want to ask since when is a woman’s “truth” not enough to punish someone? The answer would be: since 1789, when the Constitution of the United States was implemented.
We have due process for a reason. If I were to say that Elizabeth Warren sexually assaulted me a decade ago and provided no evidence or witnesses to corroborate my accusation, she should not be penalized in any shape, manner or form.
If I were a woman and were to make a similar claim against Cory Booker, again providing no witnesses or evidence, he should not be penalized for it.
Under due process, we are penalized for crimes we committed, not crimes others say we committed. We are innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around.
And the word of a woman, without any corroborating evidence or witnesses, should not be worth more than the word of the man she is accusing. We are equal under the law for a reason: to avoid horrible injustices that the Left wants to implement now.
About a month and a half back, before this entire thing with Kavanaugh started, there was a case in Connecticut about a woman pleading guilty to having falsely accused two Sacred Heart University football players back in 2016.
In the world the Left wants to live, those two football players would be sentenced for rape and be imprisoned for 5-10 years (the usual sentence for rape). Despite the allegations having been false, the Left’s court system would have punished those two, while the accuser would have been seen as a survivor of rape.
And there are other cases out there about women having falsely accused men of rape, and even times when the man actually is found guilty, despite not having actually done it. I won’t get into those particular cases, but they should be pointed out.
Under the kind of judicial system the Left wants to implement, any man would immediately be seen as a predator and would have to prove his innocence rather than the accuser having to prove his guilt.
That sort of system is the polar opposite of justice. But hey, that’s the Left for you. No justice for anyone they don’t like.
Hitler would be proud.
“Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!”
