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.
