Who needs evidence?

Evidence and witnesses are old hat.  Old fashioned.  Who needs them?  Streamline the process with one tearful testimony and convict the man!

Rape is a shameful crime.  However, its also difficult to prove, especially when the supposed incident took place decades ago.

The current “believe all survivors” movement is the child of two things: political ulterior motives and female “empowerment” (rabid hatred of men.)

At the present time its another left wing political strategy.  But to the public that goes in for this sort of thing, its just another example of how men are so awful.  The left is not only stalling the proceedings but creating the stage on which a nonsensical witch hunt of men can occur.

To be sure, there are rapists that go unpunished, and this is unfortunate.  However it would be equally as unfortunate if an innocent man is convicted (either actually or via public opinion) for a crime he didn’t do.

I don’t know if Kavanaugh is innocent.  Right now, none of us do.  But with the absence of proper evidence, we must assume that he is.  This is a basic legal tenant, folks.

If Trump pulled Kavanaugh’s nomination now and nominated someone else, it would be admitting defeat in a way.  However, could the left cook up yet another smear campaign against someone else and still be taken seriously?  The public would be a little suspicious of all these rape accusations – the left can only play this card so much.  Might help us in the midterms and, more importantly, we’d definitely have our spot on the supreme court.

Wow! Sweatshop Company Takes Stand for Social Justice!

Amazing!

Obviously, a private company should be able to do whatever it wishes; the leadership of the organization can have it’s political stances and causes.  Furthermore, the public can respond accordingly.  Nobody is wrong in this scenario.

I’m curious: what did Colin Kaepernick sacrifice?  The man’s a millionaire, he’ll be fine.

I’m not going to swoop in here and say oh, well someone else sacrificed more because no matter what, you can always one-up someone by saying that you sacrificed more than they did.  However, I’m under the opinion that Kaepernick didn’t sacrifice anything.  I’ll admit my only passive interest in football, but prior to the political controversy I don’t know if the mainstream knew anything about Colin Kaepernick.  He takes a knee, and then becomes nationally notorious.  He went from being a mediocre athlete to being a mediocre athlete at the forefront of national attention.

I think this was the intent.

I would also be surprised if Nike actually had any sort of actual principles.  If they did, the whole sweatshop and underpaid labor thing would already be addressed, given that this falls into a bad moral area for most people.

In sum, this was a brilliant advertising campaign.  It has people talking about Nike, and people destroying perfectly good shoes.
