Kavanaugh Has the Perfect Temperament [OPINION]
The left wing of the political spectrum doesn't care about the tone and temperament of Judge Kavanaugh. They are just falsely attacking him, again.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh wrote an op-ed in Thursday's Wall Street Journal to explain why he raised his voice in his own defense to the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.
He writes that his "hearing testimony was forceful and passionate." He is being attacked now for that forceful and passionate testimony by the left wing of the Democrat party, the ACLU, and members of the National Lawyers Guild. The National Lawyers Guild has a man, Mumia Abu Jamal, on its board of directors. Mumia Abu Jamal was convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in the early 1980's and serves on the NLG board from his jail cell.
Spare me the false outrage about tone and temperament.
If Judge Kavanaugh had been meek and dispassionate in his testimony, the same people would be claiming he was too weak to be on the bench and his measured and polite response indicates he is probably guilty.
How does one respond to false allegations of sexual assault? How does an innocent man respond to the charge of being the mastermind behind a cabal of teenage boys who drugged underage girls and gang-raped them? How should a person respond to the people who sprung a dishonest and filthy public smear campaign?
The next member of the Supreme Court points out that his "wife and daughters have faced vile and violent threats" in his article. And that his "testimony...reflected my overwhelming frustration at being wrongly accused, without corroboration, of horrible conduct." That conduct was gang rape and sexual assault. His testimony came before he was accused of throwing a few ice cubes at a bar while in college.
Despite all of the vile false charges and threats of violence, the now vindicated man takes the high road in his Wall Street Journal piece. "I know my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said. I everyone can understand that I was there as a son, husband, and dad. I testified with five people foremost in my mind: my mom, my dad, my wife, and most of all my daughters."
The radicals trying to destroy Judge Kavanaugh stand with cop killers. I will stand with Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
