Bill Maher Slams Social Justice Warriors for Behavior During Kavanaugh Hearings
In the next few hours Brett Kavanaugh is going to finally become Justice Kavanaugh. Hopefully, the news will then revert back to normal, with tales of lefties being lefties and Trump being a super double-secret Russian agent. Frankly, these past few weeks have been about as pleasant as slathering prescription-strength Icy Hot on your giblets.
The left is currently reflecting on just where they went wrong with trying to put the kibosh on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Bill Maher has a pretty good idea: Letting social justice douchenuggets turn this into an all-out witch hunt.
See for yourself:
HBO host Bill Maher on Friday cast some of the blame for Judge Kavanaugh’s likely confirmation to social justice warriors who are “crazy enough” to ignite fears that scrutiny in the future will include high school records.
“There are social justice warriors who are crazy enough in this country, I fight with them all the time, who … they lend enough credence to this to make people think, ‘Oh, you know what? They’re going to go after my high school record,'” Maher told his “Real Time With Bill Maher” panel during a Friday discussion. “‘That’s fair game now.’ And it becomes sort of a privacy thing.”
“It does seem like things morphed from listen to any woman who says she’s been wronged, which is the right thing to do, to automatically believe. That’s what’s scary.”
I'd say that's an accurate assessment.
Obviously Christine Ford deserves to be heard. I know of no Republican who would want to give a rapey butt-dumpling a lifetime appointment. The problem is there's no evidence to back up Ford's claims against Brett. No evidence, no guilt. Them's the rules.
Lefties, on the other hand, want us to jump straight to guilt, and they were willing to ruin Kavanaugh's name at any cost. Which is why the hearings devolved into Brett answering for his fart jokes with "Squi" while playing Devil's Triangle at Timmy's house.
Had they played their cards right, the left might have been able to pressure the right into abandoning Kavanaugh. Instead, they turned his hearings into a grade-A sh*tshow, albeit a funny one. That, among many other things, is why Brett's about to be sporting a crisp robe and gavel.
