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.
