Even if Christine Blasey Ford was perfectly sincere in her allegation against SCOTUS nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Democrats are not.
As Fox News host Tucker Carlson laid it out Monday night, “This story doesn’t have anything to do with justice.” For the Democrats, it’s all “about abortion.”
36 years ago…
Ford, now a college psychology professor in California, alleges that, while they were both high schoolers in the early 1980’s, Kavanagh attempted to sexually assault her at a house party.
The Democrats seized on the decades-old allegation with the desperation of a drowning man — it’s the only bit of dirt they’ve managed to dig up on the highly qualified and thoroughly vetted candidate.
For Democrats, Kavanaugh’s nomination process has never about anything more than pure obstructionism, fueled by an all-consuming fear that Roe v. Wade just might possibly be weakened — even though Kavanaugh has yet to say much of anything indicating a lack of support for the 1973 decision.
“The story doesn’t have anything to do with justice actually, or even with what Brett Kavanaugh might have done in high school. Underneath it all, anyone who lives in Washington can tell you, it’s all about abortion,” Carlson explained during his Fox News show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday night.
“Does anyone really believe this story would have surfaced if Kavanaugh would have pledged allegiance to Roe v. Wade.?,” he asked.
No, it would not have.
Dems defended pro-abortion Clinton, Kennedy
Politicians who were solidly pro-abortion have gotten a pass from Democrats in the past, Carlson pointed out.
“Some of the very people suggesting Kavanaugh is a sex criminal defended Bill Clinton when he was credibly accused of rape,” Carlson said, referring to Juanita Broaddrick, whose allegation of rape against Bill Clinton has never been given serious consideration by the Democrats.
“The same group practically beatified [late Massachusetts Sen.] Ted Kennedy,” Carlson went on, even after Kennedy’s scandalous and tragic Chappaquiddick car accident in which 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne was killed in 1969.
What’s different here? Kavanaugh, as a Republican nominee, is a potential threat to the Democrats — and they can’t stand to give even an inch.
As Carlson tweeted later, “The larger lesson of the past 2 yrs is the left will not abide losing power, even temporarily. For liberals, political power is personal power. W/out it, they’re exposed & terrified. Some become vicious. They believe they’re meant to run this country, our government & our culture.”

And the examples are many. We saw it in fired FBI agent Peter Strzok’s impudent testimony before the Senate. We saw that in former Vice President Joe Biden, who just last week called Trump voters — Americans, actually — the “dregs of society.”
And we can see it in failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who, despite not holding any public office, from the very beginning of the Kavanaugh Senate hearings has been almost desperately tweeting, “#StopKavanaugh.” Ford’s allegation, however thin, is all the Democrats have right now — so expect them to milk it for all it’s worth.
