Nailing my colours to the mast, I’m confident to say that the allegations (and the accusers) against Brett Kavanaugh stink. These unverifiable and inconsistent accounts, surfacing at just the right moment to be of potential use to the Democrat party strike me as quite unbelievable.
Unfortunately, in the age of #MeToo especially, justice is not based on a guilty till proven innocent foundation. The word of a woman is increasingly sacred – the word of women (plural) so much more so. A “pattern of behaviour” established by a series of accusations legitimises even the most absurd claims.
Maybe we’re not looking at genuine depictions of the patterns of behaviour of male predators? Maybe we’re looking at patterns of behaviour in certain women when empowered to destroy men when the fancy takes them?
These women could be seeking justice – but there are many other possible motivations that are at least just as likely: sympathy, amelioration of shame for past behaviour, attention, money, political power for their side, malevolence…
Stefan Molyneux has made an excellent series of videos exploring the allegations:
I recommend them.
