The Kavanaugh confirmation horror show, more than anything else, is about sex.
No, I don’t mean sex as in sexual assault allegedly committed by teenager Brett Kavanaugh – charges not only uncorroborated, but refuted at every turn by the accuser’s own named “eyewitnesses.”
I’m talking about the left’s holy grail of “sexual freedom” – total sexual anarchy – the overriding reason abortion is legal in the U.S. throughout all nine months of pregnancy and up to the moment of birth. Without abortion on demand, today’s “freedom” to have sex with whomever you want whenever you want without regard to consequences would cease to exist.
Abortion on demand is legal only because the Supreme Court made it so, against the wishes of the vast majority of Americans and the rest of their elected government. As with most of the left’s radical agenda, it is only through an activist, unelected judiciary that it has been foisted on America.
Ironically, Democrats, who urgently opposed Kavanaugh long before any sex abuse allegations emerged, cited as their primary reason their fear he would tip the Supreme Court’s balance to repeal Roe v. Wade – the historic linchpin of today’s sexual chaos. These same Democrats are now using sex as their weapon against Kavanaugh.
But there’s more. Democrats’ decision to declare all-out bloody war on Kavanaugh and his family – out of their fear of losing the unrestricted right to abortion – is strikingly reminiscent of another bizarre battle scene that played out just a few years back, and for the exact same reason.
It occurred shortly after the abortion-murder trial of Kermit Gosnell concluded with his conviction and sentencing to three life terms for multiple first-degree murders. Everyone, to all appearances anyway, was horrified by what Gosnell had done, which included killing multiple late-term babies by snipping their spinal cords.
The Gosnell verdict was handed down May 13, 2013. Just four weeks later, on June 11, the Texas legislature took up consideration of Senate Bill 5, drafted to prevent exactly the kind of horrors Gosnell had committed by banning abortions past 20 weeks gestation, that is, late-term abortions. Exceptions for the life and physical health of the mother were included, and public support was strong.
However, two weeks later on June 25, then-state senator Wendy Davis, a Democrat, engaged in an 11-hour filibuster (wearing a urinary catheter so she could stay the course) to block passage of the late-term abortion bill before the midnight end of the Texas legislative session.
The big media (who had just finished condemning Gosnell) loved Davis’s filibuster, with the Associated Press reporting: “Thousands of people watched it live online, with President Barack Obama at one point tweeting, ‘Something special is happening in Austin tonight.'” With the help of a raucous mob that would not allow representatives to record their votes by the legal deadline of midnight, Davis succeeded in blocking the bill’s passage – for a few weeks, anyway – later parlaying her newfound celebrity into an unsuccessful run for the Texas governorship in 2014.
Remarkably, Davis insisted that late-term abortion is, and I quote, “sacred.” In a post-filibuster speech at the National Press Club, she justified her actions to stop the late-term abortion ban by proclaiming, “I’ll seek common ground – we all must – but sometimes you have to take a stand on sacred ground.” In this, Davis was echoing top congressional Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who earlier had referred to abortion as “sacred ground.” While Pelosi called Gosnell’s crimes “reprehensible,” when a reporter asked her “what’s the moral difference” between what Gosnell did to babies born alive and aborting those same infants moments before birth, Pelosi refused to answer, resorting instead to one of her trademark insults to reporters: “I’m not going to have this conversation with you because you obviously have an agenda. You’re not interested in having an answer.”
Let this sink in: That which just a month earlier had been universally condemned as “monstrous,” “sickening,” “revolting” and deserving of multiple first-degree murder convictions, had now mysteriously become christened as “sacred ground.”
But that was just the beginning. After Davis’s filibuster foiled the will of the majority in the Texas legislature, then-Gov. Rick Perry, vowing his state would not succumb to mob rule, called for a special session the following month to pass the bill into law.
What greeted the new legislative session in July was unprecedented, and similar in intensity and outright freakishness to the anti-Kavanaugh displays of late.
While a pro-life speaker offered her public testimony celebrating life, and others sang “Amazing Grace,” supporters of late-term abortion attempted to drown out the pro-lifers’ hymn-singing by repeatedly chanting “Hail Satan!” as multiple videos document.
Then police confiscated bricks, tampons, pads, condoms, urine and feces that pro-abortion protestors allegedly intended to throw at pro-life lawmakers before the final vote on the late-term abortion ban. The Texas Tribune described the surreal scene at the state capital and what the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) was forced to deal with:
DPS officials have been searching bags before letting people into the gallery, requiring them to throw away paper goods such as magazines, receipts, feminine pads and tampons. One DPS officer said authorities had been instructed by the Senate’s sergeant at arms to confiscate anything that could be thrown from the gallery at senators on the floor. She said they had already found objects such as bricks, paint and glitter in bags.
… DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.
Is it a coincidence – just weeks after the nation’s consciousness was penetrated by the searing realization that abortion actually is murder – that those desperately clinging to their delusions of “the cherished constitutional right to abortion” would grow even more frenzied as the truth tended to awaken Americans? So frenzied that, just a few months later, a Wendy Davis supporter would throw a lit Molotov cocktail at a group of Christian pro-life women praying outside Austin’s Planned Parenthood.
This is just the sort of hysteria we are witnessing in response to the left’s mortal fear of Kavanaugh facilitating the repeal of Roe v. Wade. They are literally terrified of the thought. To their minds, the threat is more dire than war, more dire than a plague, more dire than total socio-economic breakdown as in Venezuela. It is, to them, more akin to a thermonuclear holocaust – something so horrible as to be unthinkable, a world they can barely imagine inhabiting.
That is why the left is so willing to destroy a good man and his wife and two little girls. Willing to effortlessly believe not just uncorroborated, but seriously insane accusations – like a teenaged monster Kavanaugh being part of a roving rape-gang that routinely drugs and sexually violates children. Willing to throw away the world’s finest, fairest, most robust, most admired legal system – based on the presumption of innocence and other bedrock principles of law and civilized society.
When their supremely cherished right to kill innocent babies is at stake, everything else is on the chopping block.
