The motivation to destroy Brett Kavanaugh comes down to one issue: abortion. With Kavanaugh on the court the odds are high that Roe will either be overturned or vastly scaled back. To most Leftists abortion is a sacrament and a sacred rite. That is appalling, but that has been reality for a very long time, and I am not surprised in the slightest by the national hysteria based upon blatant lies that the Leftists have stirred up in an effort to destroy a great Judge and a fine man, along with his family. Leftists are, by and large, modern day Machiavellians, interested solely in power. However, Catholics, even Leftist Catholics, should know better. Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts demonstrates how, sadly, that is frequently not the case:
On full display at none other than Mark Shea’s CAEI. But I said I would no longer go there! I wasn’t planning to. But when I was made aware that Deacon Greydanus hopped on the ‘Kavanaugh’s yearbook proves he’s a rapist’ train, which was a link to Mark’s page, I went there to make sure it wasn’t wrong. I wouldn’t want to accuse the good deacon of lynch mobbing Kavanaugh over his yearbook if it wasn’t true. Alas, according to Mark, it was true.
But so ridiculous, so stupid, so wrong, so appallingly ‘goosestepping to the beat of the Left’ is the rush to destroy Kavanaugh to maintain abortion rights (and liberal pundit after liberal pundit admits this is the core issue), that I have given myself a dispensation to follow any posts Mark makes relative to this issue. For a known Catholic apologist to join the injustice, lies, slander, and destruction of an innocent family in order to lift up the party dedicated to the slaughter of the innocent is worth watching.
In this latest post, Mark tells us that ‘a reader lays out Kavanaugh’s lies’. You have to read it to believe it. If his reader was a twelve year old, I wouldn’t be surprised. Though that is a bit of an insult to twelve year olds. And yet, it’s no worse than the idiocy and mandated absurdity that the Left is demanding from all who will destroy this man’s life and family.
Read it your self, then read the comments. From the opening ‘Obvious Ford was credible, duh. Because she was so obviously credible even if she couldn’t prove anything’, to the constant ‘The things in his yearbook mean this today according to Urban Dictionary (because words and slang never change), so they obviously meant the same 30 years ago’, to the very fact that we’re dissecting a high school yearbook to see if an adolescent over drank at parties or not, it should send off warning bells and whistles.
But again, the Left is a jealous god that demands blood sacrifice, and a growing number of Americans – including Christians – are more than happy to step up to the altar and provide it. As they have sadly done far too many times over the ages. Mark’s laughably inane and moronic post wouldn’t be worth the effort if we weren’t hearing the same reasoning from politicians, journalists, scholars, commentators, and activists. He drank too much at 19, or wrote scribbles in a yearbook – destroy him now! In fairness to his good reader, some of what I heard over the weekend was no better.
If you ever wondered how believers could don swastikas and march in lockstep at Nuremberg rallies, look no further than their support for the train wreck of injustice and evil we are witnessing now. God help us, and God protect us from the coming storm. And that includes our brothers and sisters in Christ who will destroy their fellow believers in fealty to the heathen god that has emerged in the midst of our nation.
Note: I will only comment on Mark’s posts related to the Kavanaugh lynch mob. I will ignore his other posts as a matter of principle. If Mark’s posts reflected the fringe lunacy they usually do, I wouldn’t bother. But showing the lunacy, and then knowing it is mainstream, national press, Democratic party, liberal pundit perspective, is an example in how things can unravel so quickly in a given society.
Go here to comment. Most Catholic Leftists, like Leftists in general, are unknowingly, at least one hopes unknowingly, following a path described by Orwell in his masterpiece 1984:
The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. . . . Power is not a means; it is an end . . . not power over things, but over men. . . . In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. . . . There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. . . . Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.
