The Fuggernaught and the Marriage Gap, by The Audacious Epigone.
Well, the fuggernaught has stumbled onto a successful method of counterfeiting accusations against demographic enemies in the Roy Moore and Brett Kavanaugh cases. Fabricated sexual misconduct allegations that are recent as susceptible to all kinds of new technological innovations that make them disprovable (ie the Duke Lacrosse lie, the UVA rape hoax, etc). But old ones existing before the age of ubiquitous digital time stamps? Those are easy to lie about and almost impossible to positively refute.
Guilty until proven innocent, with no repercussions to the accuser even if the thing is mendacious slander from top to bottom. …
Even if the Stupid Party wins this battle and Kavanaugh is confirmed, it’s a Pyrrhic victory of sorts, the only kind of victory cuckservatives ever win. The fuggernaught is the real winner here. It used the tactic with Roy Moore and it worked, they’re using it with Kavanaugh and it’s almost done the trick, and they’ll use it again and again in the future with varying degrees of success and no drawbacks.
They also win with it in the same way they’re winning with the never-ending Fake Russia Story. Yeah, the whole thing is laughably false, but it is having the effect of scaring people away from working for the Trump administration, and this new accuse-from-the-hip will scare people on the right more generally from wanting to do anything in an official capacity.
Parenthetically, the putative war on women is really a war on marriage. One of Steve Sailer’s many great insights over the years has been noting how the much talked about gender gap is reliably dwarfed by the much larger marriage gap.
So it is with the Kavanaugh calumny. The following graphs show firstly the percentages of respondents, by sex and marital status, who support Kavanaugh’s nomination with “don’t know” responses excluded, and secondly the gap in support by sex and then the gaps in support between married and never-married members of the same sex (N = 19,561):
… The imposition of same-sex marriage wasn’t just gratuitous leftism, it had a very precise and very predictable political purpose.
