The “progressive” suicide bomber

One of the harder questions to answer from supporters and apologists of the women who have made accusations regarding Judge Kavanaugh is: Why would these women consent to becoming widely known, and subjecting themselves to close inspection and certain ridicule, if they were lying? Especially since their evidence is scanty, and their alleged witnesses fail to support their accounts? What sane person would do such a thing?

Let me repeat that last question: What sane person would do such a thing? It’s rather like strapping on a belt of explosives or guiding a plane into a skyscraper….

A cynical thought emerges.

Submitted for your approval, or derision as the case may be, is the concept of a new soldier within our increasingly uncivil civil wars: the “Progressive” Suicide Bomber.

This is a cadre of fanatical true believers who profess Trump is Hitler (apart from the death camps), Science is Real (except for vaccines), and Believe All Women (unless it involves Bill Clinton or Keith Ellison or is supportive of Republicans). Their credo is By Any Means Necessary, because the ends justify the means.

I can appreciate why one might think that the suicide bomber concept makes little sense.  “Progressives” are people who talk big but never make sacrifices for their causes.  You need to pay more taxes, not them.  Your carbon footprint is too big, while they fly around the world.

But, consider, we now have “progressives” actually pledging their own organs (not just those of others, mind you; that’s important) to keep Notorious RBG alive and semi-erect, so why can’t some of their fellow travelers sacrifice their very lives and sacred honor in the service of their glorious, oligarchical progressivism?

Christine Blasey Ford, true-believing Bernie Bot and Californian professor of minimal renown, “reluctantly” but firmly accused Judge Kavanaugh of attempted rape, after (according to some reports) suggesting that someone do that very thing to Judge Gorsuch. (Those reports may be dubious, but does that matter anymore?) Her story is flawed, her memory severely gapped, and the witnesses she named have denied, but again we must Believe All Women (unless it involves Bill Clinton or Keith Ellison or is supportive of Republicans). Why would she lie?

Blasey Ford does not have a shred of evidence, but she has made herself into a missile and guided herself into the present target, Judge K. It would not matter if Ford were conclusively proved to be a fraud — the damage has been done. It does not matter if Judge K were a saint that walks upon water; he is merely collateral damage. It does not matter if Ford has destroyed her own life; she is a suicide bomber, destined for heaven and 72 virgins of the gender of her choice.

In the fanatical religion that is “progressivism”, the cause is all. The end justifies the means.

Now we have a Deborah Ramirez emerge. More significant gaps, more denials, more insinuations without evidence — another gossamer story, from another likely suicide bomber. It does not matter if Ramirez is conclusively proved to be a fraud — more damage is done.  It adds up.

“The Enemy is someone who is willing to die in order to kill you. And while it is true that the Enemy always hates us for a reason — it is his reason, and not ours.” — Lee Harris, “Civilization and its Enemies”

  1. What sacrifice? These people will be feted as heroes. They are “speaking truth to power”. Freedom fighters against the oppression.

  2. It’s so much easier to sacrifice someone else’s comfort, freedom, liberty, money, than your own.  That’s your garden variety “progressive”.  It’s also not easy for honest and sane people to lie intentionally and hurt knowingly. It takes a true fanatic.  I see much in common between “progressives” and radical Islamics.

    By the way, the whole 72 virgin thing strikes me as problematic. Can you imagine having to train so many clueless newbies?  “Progressive” heaven is hard work

  3. It now seems likely this was all orchestrated in advance as to the timing so as to make it impossible to confirm a new justice during this senate term.

    Maybe.

    It seems to me that these accusations are so obviously made in bad faith and so obviously without any actual evidence to support them that they will not stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed.

    We’ll see. But I find it interesting that the two GOP senators who I’ve seen reported to be willing to vote against Kavanaugh are Flake and Corker, who aren’t even running for re-election.

    I think the base of the GOP has run out of patience with this sort of bad faith accusation from the left and isn’t willing to tolerate Republican politicians who are stupid or duplicitous enough to take them seriously.

    Have you noticed that, Senator Sasse?

    Regardless, if the left blocks Kavanaugh with these phony accusations, perhaps preventing Trump from filling the seat during his term, then it is just another grim step to the end of the regime.

    If Republicans are somehow now forbidden from appointing Supreme Court justices, then Republicans have no stake in the continued ability of that court to rule over us- or in the existence of a government that thinks so little of our opinions.

    Are leftist too stupid to notice this, or too vile to care? Or both?

  5. I think the left literally throws these ideas out to groups of people – online in private groups or in meetings in people’s homes – something like: “Is there anyone among us who has the courage to step up and do this selfless act for the cause?” and the attendees with brains and something to lose hang back, but they eventually find a clueless loser who thinks they will be leading the heroic charge.

    With my own eyes I’ve seen friends become unhinged since Trump’s election, so I think it’s possible.

    I think that’s what happened with Ford, because she’s nowhere to be seen; probably because she’ll present very poorly. The left has no moral standard in using people of low self-awareness for their own purposes, they use children at political demonstrations for pity’s sake.

  6. I think there’s got to be some money involved, too. I know some of these progressives are so into their message they’d do it without compensation, but I still believe some money will change hands.

    That’s exactly right! Anita Hill has lived on her days as star witness ever since.  These women have nothing to lose, and book deals and speaking engagements to gain. Nice work.

    There are very few professors who like Anita Hill go from Oral Roberts to Brandeis.

  9. This is about one thing and one thing only: stopping the nomination so Roe v Wade doesn’t get overturned. Leftist activists will make up any lie they have to in order to do that.
