There’s One Tiny Problem With the New Brett Kavanaugh Allegation
The New York Times, authors Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, and the entirety of the Democratic Party are having a field day with the supposedly explosive new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Still frustrated and aggrieved that Kavanaugh made it onto the bench despite one of the most disgusting smear campaigns of all time, Democrats reveled in the new accusation, which was spotlighted on the front page of Sunday’s edition of the Times.
Pogrebin and Kelly, who are promoting their new book about Kavanaugh’s background, revealed: “We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”
Okay, that’s pretty strange, but…sure. All right. We guess that counts as…something.
Before we make too much out of it, though, would it be possible to hear from the female student in question?
“The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event,” writes Federalist author Mollie Hemingway.
How about that. Stier has been carrying the burden of this monstrous event around on his shoulders for more than twenty years, but the girl whose hand was the unwelcome recipient of Kavanaugh’s penis has no memory of it ever happening. Right.
Whatever you say, NY Times.
Now, we’ll leave it up to the Times editors to tell us whether or not it is journalistically responsible to include this accusation in the paper, seeing as how it comes to us from a third party witness, who could have any of a thousand ulterior motives. But it is beyond doubt that if you ARE going to publish this allegation, you have a responsibility to print the full truth of it – that certainly includes the fact that the “victim” herself denies that it ever happened. You think there’s a snowball’s chance in hell they would have published it this way if the subject of the allegation was, say, Stephen Breyer?
Democrats are once again on the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, and it’s as embarrassing today as it was six months ago. More so, seeing as how we have it from Christine Blasey Ford’s own lawyer that Ford was partially motivated by a desire to preserve Roe v. Wade. We assume that’s the kind of motivation that can magically dig up memories that laid dormant and unmentioned for forty years.
Perhaps even the kind of motivation that can lead a random schoolmate of Kavanaugh’s to fabricate some nonsense story about the judge, his friends, and a drunken night at the frat house where Kavanaugh was wandering around without his pants on. Thankfully, it seems the “victim” of this prank is immune to such political manipulation. We’re sure that irritates the left to no end.
