One of the bigger stories for the past couple of weeks has been the accusation of Supreme Court pick Justice Brett Kavanaugh of having sexually assaulted a woman decades ago while he was a teenager and intoxicated.
On the outset, this represents nothing more than a political hit job against Kavanaugh simply for being conservative and for being picked to the Supreme Court by Donald Trump, whom the Left abhors. And while this is accurate, I believe the stipulations for this particular case go well beyond this and highlights a problem in today’s world, a problem that Socrates himself saw in ancient Greece: a trend away from logic and into ignorance.
Let’s look at what we know from this case. The accuser has refused to come forward and face the man he’s accusing, she has passed a polygraph test, but cannot recall with accuracy where or even when this sexual assault even took place, only offering the vague timeline of sometime over 30 years ago. She presents no evidence to support her claims, no evidence to corroborate her claims and the two people she accuses, both Kavanaugh and someone she claims helped Kavanaugh, both have refuted her claims.
Not to mention that her lawyer has even boldly stated that it wasn’t the accuser’s job to corroborate her story and the accuser herself is a huge Leftist activist who has supported Obama, Hillary and the DNC.
So basically, this woman is saying the soon-to-be-confirmed (yes, I believe he will be confirmed no matter what) conservative Christian judge selected by President Donald Trump, whom the Left vehemently hates, floats a huge claim that she refuses to corroborate or present any evidence of, refuses to even step forth to face the man she’s accusing, cannot accurately recall the where or when of this event, and we’re just supposed to believe her?
This isn’t just an attack on a conservative nominee for the Supreme Court, it’s an attack on logic and people’s very intelligence.
But it perfectly represents what the #MeToo movement, and the Left overall, are in today’s world: feelings over facts.
It doesn’t matter that the woman’s accusation is incredibly shoddy, in both what she’s claiming and the timing for the claims. If it helps the Left in any matter, that’s fine. It’s this willingness to ignore logic in favor of moving a political agenda that drives closer a comparison between today’s America and Socrates’ Greece. Socrates feared that ignorance was prevalent and that logic was dwindling. He perfectly understood that civilized society could not survive ignorance. That ignorance turns civilization from a civilized society to a savage and barbaric society devoid of knowledge and logic, doomed to return to a primal form of life.
This is what the Left is doing. The #MeToo movement takes any woman’s accusations and takes them to be 100% truthful. It doesn’t matter if there is a lack of evidence or if the claims do not appear credible. In their minds, every claim by every woman is credible… unless a woman makes a claim against a top Democrat in the government.
While the Left tries to push the rhetoric that Kavanaugh’s accuser is telling the truth and is to be believed, they try to bury the far more credible and provable story that Keith Ellison has physically abused his ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan, despite the fact that Monahan has presented text and 911-call evidence to support her claim.
But since Keith Ellison is a top Democrat representative and key leader in the resistance movement against Donald Trump, the Left utterly ignores the woman’s plea.
Much like the double-standard that exists in the justice system regarding Republicans and Democrats (Republicans pay heftily for things Democrats do all the time), there is also a double-standard in the #MeToo movement’s unofficial justice system. Any woman who comes forward to accuse a Republican is immediately credible, regardless of lack of evidence or even willingness to corroborate her story under oath, but any woman who comes forward to accuse an important Democrat figure must be silenced.
And it’s not like this is anything new. With Justice Clarence Thomas, the Left completely believed Anita Hill’s story. With Bill Clinton, the Left tried to destroy the women who claimed he sexually abused them or worse. Anita Hill is considered a hero to the Left and women like Monica Lewinski, Juanita Broaddrick and others are either sluts or not to be believed, despite the evidence they present.
But it’s not just that there’s an issue of a double-standard. The very fact that there even is such a double-standard at play here highlights the Left’s willingness to move away from logic and reason and to complete and utter ignorance.
Not that this should come as any surprise to anyone. I’ve often said that the Left needs a perpetually dependent base for them to have power. This dependency isn’t just financial, but also intellectual. The Left feeds people crap like “we’re killing the planet” or “a fetus is not alive” and people eat it up, leading to people continuing to support, vote and keep these deceptive people in power.
The Left’s mission is to rule the people with an iron grip. Their desire to bring about socialism in this country only solidifies that fact as true. But things aren’t quite so simple. In order to achieve this, a number of things must happen, chief among which is the destruction of logic and wisdom, something that would set us back by millennia.
Think about it, people who regularly and effectively employ logic can recognize the illogical inconsistencies and fallacies of Leftist narrative. The Left REQUIRES people to simply believe their claims and will go to any lengths, most particularly lying, to get people to believe them.
Regarding Kavanaugh’s accuser, it’s completely illogical to believe her story. She does not present any sort of evidence, does not and will not corroborate her story, does not accurately remember key factors of her story which any ACTUAL victim of sexual abuse likely would, did not come forward about this story until THIRTY YEARS later when her supposed assaulter is about to be confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States and has a history of being a Leftist activist and Democrat supporter.
It’s not for any of the first few reasons that the Left believes her. It’s because she is useful to the Left that they believe her.
If I were to accuse Senator Elizabeth Warren of having sexually abused me a decade ago, offered no evidence or witnesses to support my claim, offered not even any intention of corroborating my story and have been shown to be a far-Right conservative Christian who is anti-Left, anti-socialist and would vote against Warren were I to live in her state of Massachusetts, the Left would dismiss me as not credible and a liar seeking to perform character assassination on Warren. And they would be right to do so.
But because Kavanaugh’s accuser is a devout Leftist who can help the Left in their pitiful resistance efforts, the Left dismisses all the idiocy of the entire accusation.
It does not help further anyone’s intelligence, but rather flat out insults them. It marks a threat to logic and intelligence itself for it to be as successful as it is. It should have immediately been recognized as a political hit job and Kavanaugh should be well on his way to getting confirmed as scheduled without any possible or actual delays.
The fact that it wasn’t immediately tossed aside like Booker’s and Harris’ attacks against Kavanaugh is indicative of the problem Socrates faced in Athens: ignorance is taking over and logic and intelligence are being cast aside.
Like I said, allowing for ignorance to take hold of a civilization is to witness the regression of a civilized society being turned into a barbaric one.
