Kavanaugh confirmation chaos — Liberals, especially liberal women, should be careful what they wish for

Kavanaugh confirmation chaos — Liberals, especially liberal women, should be careful what they wish for. By Liz Peek.

Should all women be believed? …

Should the testimony of a woman be worth more than a man’s? Our Muslim colonizers are going to have trouble with that.

Democrats say unproven accusations of sexual misconduct by Christine Blasey Ford and more recently by Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate, are enough to disqualify him from sitting on the bench. …

The newly revealed claims by Ms. Ramirez — that at a drunken dorm party Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face — are refuted by numerous people said to have been there, and further complicated by her admission that she was drunk at the time. The new revelations were reported by the New Yorker, which said “Ramirez acknowledged that there are significant gaps in her memories of the evening…”

In short, her accusation, like that of Christine Blasey Ford, will likely be believed by opponents of the judge, but may not be provable.

Watch the framing. The media would have you believe this is no longer about Kavanaugh or truth, but about woman’s rights:

The New York Times suggests in a recent piece that the showdown is a pivotal moment for the #MeToo movement. They quote a senior executive of Planned Parenthood saying, “This is a distillation of the entire two years’ trajectory for women in this country. Are we respected? Are we believed? Are we equal?”

In other words, both Kavanaugh and Ford have becomes pawns in a much larger debate – about the validity and fairness of the #MeToo movement. …

Polling shows that Democrats overwhelmingly believe Ford while most Republicans think Kavanaugh is telling the truth. …

Progressive culture is different:

This rush to judgement, fueled by gender bias, will surely not sit well with fair-minded Americans. It goes contrary to our country’s essential principle that someone’s gender, race or religion has no bearing on his or her guilt or innocence. These kinds of statements are doing women, and #MeToo, no favors. …

Anti-male bias is rampant:

Republican members of the committee will be lambasted if they challenge Ford’s account; already Democrats have (in unison) accused their political rivals of “bullying” and dismissed their impartiality because they are men.

If I were a man, I’d find such dismissals insulting.

Almost as insulting as Senator Hirono recently saying, “I just want to say to the men of this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.” …

So if you’re male, you don’t dare have females around:

I have spoken to numerous young female office workers who are openly concerned that they are being excluded from informal gatherings because their associates are worried their conversations or behavior might be misconstrued. What executive is going to take the risk of inviting a junior female co-worker out to lunch or for an after-work drink, when all it takes is an accusation to lose his job?

Women used to complain that their exclusion from the Boys’ Clubs so powerfully in control of board rooms and C-Suites was preventing their advancement. #MeToo may, ironically, shut that door even more firmly.
