The Democrats’ pro-woman fraud

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - By Tammy Bruce

Re­ceiv­ing some news cov­er­age over the past few weeks, but not much, has been the rev­e­la­tion that four peo­ple have been re­ferred by the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee for crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­gard­ing al­legedly false state­ments re­lat­ing to the Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

This in­cludes a man who said Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh raped some­one on a boat. That per­son even­tu­ally re­canted and apol­o­gized. Also re­ferred were at­tor­ney Michael Ave­natti and his client Julie Swet­nick who claimed Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh was the mas­ter­mind of gang-rape fac­to­ries, as well as a woman who also ad­mits she lied when claim­ing she was raped “sev­eral times each” by Brett Ka­vanaugh and his friend in the back of a car. This, too, was re­canted by the ac­cuser with an ad­mis­sion that she did it to “grab at­ten­tion.”

And yet here we are, af­ter spend­ing weeks with Demo­cratic lead­er­ship in the United States Se­nate ac­cus­ing a nom­i­nee for the U.S. Supreme Court of be­ing a gang rapist, cov­ered 24/7 by me­dia, as we were or­dered to dump due process and “be­lieve all women.” Be­cause if we don’t, we are en­abling rapists and misog­y­nists ev­ery­where.

What we know, and ar­gued through­out that cir­cus, is if you aban­don due process the only thing you pro­mote and en­able are liars and kan­ga­roo courts. And voila, we now know that’s what we got.

The Democrats told the world that Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh was a se­rial gan­grapist mas­ter­mind. In high school. And prob­a­bly also in col­lege. Protests emerged at Har­vard to re­move him from a teach­ing post (which suc­ceeded), and some tried to even get him banned from coach­ing his daugh­ter’s bas­ket­ball team.

Julie Swet­nick, rape-fac­tory ac­cuser, was el­e­vated as a hero by sen­a­tors like Ka­mala Har­ris, and spo­ken of as “cred­i­ble” by Sen­a­tors Dianne Fe­in­stein, Cory Booker and Mazie Hirono, among other Se­nate Democrats.

All those cham­pi­ons and pro­tec­tors of women in the Se­nate, where are they now? Is Ka­mala Har­ris go­ing to pay for Julie Swet­nick’s de­fense costs? Ms. Fe­in­stein and Mr. Booker and Ms. Hirono “be­lieve all women.” Ms. Hirono said it was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh to “prove his in­no­cence.” Why aren’t Sen­a­tors Hirono, Leahy and Klobachar en­gag­ing in a hunger strike as Ka­vanaugh ac­cusers face crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion?

If th­ese Democrats were se­ri­ous about what they were do­ing, and se­ri­ous about sex­ual as­sault, they would be an­gry. They would be ap­palled that peo­ple lied; that frauds re­versed the im­pact of what the fem­i­nist move­ment was try­ing to do for the last 20 years: Ar­gu­ing for women to be taken se­ri­ously on sex­ual as­sault and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. Or, if they still be­lieve ev­ery­one, they should be ap­palled that the brave and true are be­ing falsely ac­cused them­selves.

In­stead, we have crick­ets. There’s noth­ing about #BelieveAl­lWomen, be­cause it’s not use­ful any­more. Like sex­ual as­sault as an is­sue, its po­lit­i­cal value is spent.

The legacy me­dia car­ried the fraud that Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh was a gang rapist. Day and night, that was all Amer­ica and the world heard. Yet they, too, are silent. Wouldn’t hav­ing a rape mas­ter­mind on the Supreme Court re­quire more out­rage and more in­ves­ti­ga­tion?

But no, ev­ery­one has run for the hills, which tells us plenty. This si­lence and aban­don­ment makes clear that what we were all sub­jected to was a po­lit­i­cal stunt. The Democrats knew what they were do­ing, they did not care about the im­pact on women over­all, and they still don’t.

And that is the largest fraud fac­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple: The Amer­i­can left is not only not cham­pi­ons for women, they use us like can­non fod­der, and need our lives to get worse. Oth­er­wise, what hor­ri­ble al­le­ga­tions would they be able to hurl at in­no­cent po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents?

While the Democrats have thrown the Ka­vanaugh de­ba­cle into the mem­ory hole, the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee has not. Gen­er­ally ig­nored by the legacy me­dia in the midst of the midterm, the com­mit­tee’s 414-page re­port on the Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tion was re­leased. It de­tails ex­actly how much of a fraud the Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh hear­ing re­ally was, and the se­ri­ous­ness of false charges lodged against him.

In ad­di­tion to the de­tails of the crim­i­nal re­fer­rals made to the DOJ, the re­port states that there “was no cred­i­ble ev­i­dence to sup­port the al­le­ga­tions” against Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh. This in­cludes the charges made by Chris­tine Blasey Ford. The re­port re­veals, among other sig­nif­i­cant de­tails, in­ter­views with two men who be­lieve they were mis­taken by Ms. Ford for Ka­vanaugh as they re­counted a con­sen­sual act with the ac­cuser.

All of this con­firms my ar­gu­ment from the start of this de­ba­cle: The Democrats never cared about “the women,” and they see vi­o­lence against women as a po­lit­i­cal tool, not some­thing to solve. Their politi­ciz­ing our lives di­min­ishes all women, and in­vited the fraud which is dam­ag­ing the work that has been done for at least two gen­er­a­tions to get women to be taken se­ri­ously on is­sues of sex­ual and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.
