We admit it: we’re fascinated by the hypocrisy of the left. It’s at the same time stomach-turning and riveting, like not being able to avert one’s eyes from a deadly automobile accident that is unfolding.
Enter Cory Booker, the uber-liberal Democrat who led the charge against poor, defenseless Bret Kavanaugh. You remember, Kavanaugh was the Supreme Court nominee (now an Associate Justice, thank the Lord) who was accused of sexual assault over thirty years ago when he was still a high school teen. The charges were leveled without corroboration, even by the accuser’s best friend who was supposedly a witness but who then denied it (actually, nobody remembered it). Kavanaugh was confirmed, but not until the left went ballistic, screaming and protesting (still) that an accuser must be believed without evidence of any kind. Cory “I’m Spartacus” Booker led the merciless onslaught.
He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans, and began to rub…He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently…
…anonymous Booker accuser
But the reaction from the left is a little—shall we say—different this time. The national broadcast media—we all know how they roll—are not pushing the story like they immediately did with Kavanaugh. Nor are the Dems angrily and self righteously demanding Booker’s removal from office. No, now that it’s one of them, they are painting it as a smear without merit of any sort. And if this isn’t paradox enough for you, CNN actually defended him regarding a separate incident of sexual assault perpetrated by Booker when he was fifteen. Of course, when those excuses were (rightly, in our view) made by Kavanaugh supporters they were vilified. Now they are righteous when used to defend crazy Cory Booker.
For our part, we give no greater credence at this point to Booker’s uncorroborated bathroom accuser as we did to Kavanaugh’s. The irony is in the left’s hypocrisy in outrage over the accusations against Kavanaugh, and then defending their own when basically the same type of accusations are leveled.
The most amazing thing is, in the face of this continuing hypocrisy and dishonesty on the left, everyone is expecting a blue wave on election day in two weeks. Go figure!
God save us.
