Faces made in three minutes-- clear evidence this man does not deserve to be a SCOTUS judge

Brett Kavanaugh should be removed from his position as a federal judge and prosecuted for his assaults on women. The reality that Republicans are poised to approve him as a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court is an indictment of the Republican party that will not be forgiven. Ford's testimony has re-awakened the painful memories of sexual assaults that millions of women have lived with.

Talking about the hearing, a relative of mine blurted out that she'd been sexually assaulted thirty years ago, and that her telling me was the first time she'd told anyone. I believe that this kind of re-opening of old wounds has happened in the past weeks. The Republicans who vote to make Kavanaugh the next supreme court justice will be sullying the reputation of the supreme court, perhaps permanently. But they will also be digging their own grave in the November midterm elections. I am certain that polls will show this.

Dr. Ford met her goal, offering convincing testimony that was highly believable. She acted in the way an honest truth-teller behaves, fully cooperating, asking for an effort to investigate as much as possible.

Brett Kavanaugh failed miserably, showing terrible petulant, temperament, evasive argumentation, and adolescent teenage boy demeanor.

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote,

"Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh decided that to have any chance to reach the court, he would have to shed the pretense he was a fair-minded, calm, judicious thinker. He came out in the afternoon filled with venom, screaming at the committee."

But worst, it was very clear he was lying about his yearbook statements. An innocent man would demand an FBI investigation. He refused to do so. That looks very bad. It looks guilty.

The eleven Republican senators who hid behind their "assistant" were cowards, unwilling to talk directly with Dr. Ford.

A New York Times Editorial Board op-ed stated,

"On Thursday, he gave misleading answers to questions about seemingly small matters -- sharpening doubts about his honesty about far more significant ones. He gave coy answers when pressed about what was clearly a sexual innuendo in his high-school yearbook. He insisted over and over that others Dr. Blasey named as attending the gathering had "said it didn't happen," when in fact at least two of them have said only that they don't recall it -- and one of them told a reporter that she believes Dr. Blasey."
Dana Milbank wrote,
"Brett M. Kavanaugh proved himself unfit to serve on the Supreme Court.

It has little to do with his treatment of women.

Kavanaugh's freshman-year roommate at Yale had told the New Yorker that the future Supreme Court nominee could become "aggressive "and "belligerent" when drunk. But, as millions have now seen with their own eyes, he is aggressive and belligerent when stone-cold sober."

Kavenaugh's treatment of Senator Amy Klobuchar, snapping at her when she asked about whether he'd ever blacked out after drinking, demonstrated the nasty, aggressive behavior that Dr. Ford had reported. He couldn't, even sober, hold back from such vile behavior.

The final result of this may not give Dr. Ford justice, but it marks the beginning of the end for the Republican party. Of course such a claim could be proven wrong if the Democratic leadership continues on the misguided path the DNC and party insiders have led. The Democrats have an opportunity to make great gains, But they will fail if they continue their neoliberal, corporatist leanings.

"indictment of the Republican party that will not be forgiven"

I wish you were right but ....

There are so many indictments that were "forgiven", others will be.

Absolutely.

First, Rob, I want to say how much I deeply appreciate your attention to women's journeys through the hell of misogyny and your willingness to expose the pitfalls. You are unique among men in this, and the space you have created on OpEdNews for addressing this is a valuable one. Thank you.

Also:

I hereby offer a little "FYI" to men, even the wonderful, reasonable ones. Expect most of the women in your lives to be f*cking pissed as hell about everything in these moments. DON'T TRY TO FIX THEM!!! Just quietly acknowledge their pain, honor their stories, look beyond the factual details of the event into the facts of the traumas that were experienced.

It doesn't matter how many f*cking years ago it was, those moments are indelibly seared into a women's soul.

Every woman I know has been sexually harrassed or worse. Including myself. Many have never uttered a word about some of the events. Including myself. The first time you speak up, and get ridiculed and/or ignored by those in power, you learn to be silent for f*cking ever.

But that's changed, now.

A half century or more of silence is being broken by many women. I include myself. Women want to be heard in this moment. Period.

So just shut up and f*cking listen. And think. The stored-up rage of millennia is dangerous, powerful, and effective. Your best bet is to nod in agreement and try to keep out of the way.

Just sayin.'

Thank you.

Flake knows he can't be re-elected if he challenges Trump and his base. That's why he and the late John McCain could occasionally show some spine in opposing Trump, though we should not make too much of that either. McCain voted with the president 83% of the time and Flake is probably even closer to 100%.

Only the Republicans who are retiring have that kind of freedom, and rarely the two Republican women Senators, Collins and Murkowsy, because the caucus is so desperate to keep at least two token women aboard lest they look like what they really are: the anti-woman party.

But it'll take a sweep of progressive Democrats to really challenge the status quo. I just saw the new Michael Moore film, and it shows there are dozens of such people - a lot of them women - running now, but will they win in November, especially in a corrupt voting system? Moore makes it clear that Sanders' states in the primaries were stolen from him so that the party favorite, Clinton, could get the nomination (for example, Sanders won in every county in West Virginia, every single one, but Clinton was given the nod by the superdelegates in the convention anyway. In about a dozen states that Bernie won - critical, working class, purple states that trump finally won, Bernie Sanders had won the popular vote, but had the nomination stolen from him in the convention). After that, purple state voters stayed home, allowing Trump to eke out enough votes to win the electoral college. Maybe that won't happen again, but the election system is rigged, and the Democratic party still corrupt, so it won't take much to lose...again.

While I understand Bernie's situation, it was his 180 degree about face and support for HC that made me "unlike him." A politician who is serious about change well knows that the CIA will take them out, in so many possible ways. IMO, we are seriously fkd, from so many angles, financial, political, stupidity, and more, that I try to hang on from day to day, and give great thanks to my wife and two dogs that keep me (barely) hanging in.

Anyone skilled in interrogation would see the tells on both these victims. One is definitely protecting the family, the other is trying to destroy a family. One is vindictive, the other has been wounded by a vicious predator. The worst part is that the roles are reversed from the norm. Follow the money. It always leads to the root of evil. I'll let you decide. Only one person loses no matter what the outcome. Guess who?

Oh please. Blasey Ford is telling the truth. Kavanaugh's own history, behaviors and his lies will have destroyed his family.


Imagine being married to such a mean, surly, angry man. I'm sure he has abused his wife too, at the least emotionally. Any man who behaves as he has in such a public setting also acts that way at home.

I believe the Republicans made this calculation, because getting another right winger for a potentially 30 year appointment transcends even the immediate fate of the GOP. They may well lose the House and even the Senate after November,so they have to ram their appointment through now, even if it further exacerbates a "blue wave". Kavanaugh is a "team player" who will shed all pretense of an impartial judge following the laws and the constitution without regard for politics. He will rule for the Republican team.

Nothing demonstrates this better than his petulant tirade against the Democratic conspiracy trying to deny him the appointment to which he is entitled. As one commentator put it, Trump couldn't have said it better.

Kavanaugh worked on the Starr investigation and pushed for an even more aggressive vendetta against Bill Clinton. He has since decided that presidents should be immune from pesky criminal investigations and law suits, thus showing his legal philosophy can change depending on which team it benefits. It is very probable Trump picked him primarily for this reason.

Kavanaugh will stand firmly for corporate personhood and inalienable free speech rights. So much for getting money out of politics, or politics out of Supreme Court confirmations.

I just had a thought.

Both Kavanaugh and Trump, and many on the Right, have complained that this process will drive away future applicants for the Supreme Court, and it probably will.

But I wonder: Are any of those applicants women? If not, why not? Hmmm....

Rob:


I generally agree with almost all of your commentary, but this article about Kavanaugh seems very biased. First of all, I am against his nomination but the proceedings concerning sexual assault being used to derail him smack of McCarthyism.


Listen to what your wrote: He insisted over and over that others Dr. Blasey named as attending the gathering had "said it didn't happen," when in fact at least two of them have said only that they don't recall it -- and one of them told a reporter that she believes Dr. Blasey."


Well, if they don't recall it, then that means, it's a moot issue, don't you think. And if only one person says she believes Ford, it comes down to She said / He said. Neither of these are enough to indict someone. You're going on pure emotional rather than reason. Not a way to convict someone who may be telling the truth -- we have no concrete evidence that he isn't, do we? Just innuendo that's more than 30 years old.


I'm as much opposed to him as anyone because of political views, but I don't like the way his character is being destroyed for what happened 36 years ago. Would you like everything you ever did in your teens to be scrutinized like this? It's pathetic. Don't let your emotions cloud this issue.

If I were a nominee for the the Supreme Court, I would expect that kind of scrutiny, yes. And this is not a trial. It is a job screening. Just based on what we know so far, Kavanaugh would not be hired by 95% of the Fortune 1000.

Bill Cosby was just put in jail for 30 year old crimes. There is no time limit on justice.

And there is some he said she said. Kavanaugh's problem is HOW he said. He looks like a liar and a man of bad character unsuited for the SCOTUS. Blasey Ford looks like a truthteller. Ignoring the accusations, the hearing outed his bad character.

I agree up to a point. I would never subject myself or my family to that kind of total exposure scrutiny. It's just too much, even for a top political job. The process should go on with the FBI in private, among those doing the hiring, ideally. There's such a thing as too much openness too. This all could have come out earlier if the FBI had done its job right before and the whole thing wasn't so political.

So you would not subject yourself, OK.

Those who would are still available for the job, quite a few good ones.

The Supreme Court position does not have to be available to everybody.

Self selection, the right one, might be helpful.

I gave a thumbs up. But I also note the quite close to 100% statements:


1) The best predictor of human behavior is past behavior;


2) K is a 100% corporate d*ckhead, has perjured under oath countless times.


P.S. As a victim of 12 years of Catholic school, I would also add that if he paid two bits of attention to his teachers, he would not even masturbate. Let alone be associated with gang rape, in any way, shape or form.

The man is a creep with bad character undeserving of SCOTUS nomination. And he lied repeatedly. Google Devils triangle. And he drank illegally.

Finally, this is not a hearing, not a trial. It's a job application and he acted in a way unbefitting any judge.

Apparently the people who know him and have worked with him over the years, and yes that includes women, strongly disagree with you.

I choose to take their judgment of his character over the 'tabloid' New York Times.

This whole disgusting display is a subversion of the Me Too movement. All for a political agenda by the Democratic party that could care less about Dr Ford. So spare me the feigned concern about a nearly 40 year old incident between teenagers.

The Democrats lost and have stooped to a very low level. Pathetic.

Kavanaugh will be confirmed to do what he was chosen to do:

end Roe vs Wade, outlaw birth control, and bring this country back to the Dark Ages, as far as women are concerned, at least.

Oh, and to protect his Fuhrer from Mueller.

I have a theory that trump KNEW about Kavanaugh's sexual predatory behavior and chose him because of it. They're thick as thieves, so to speak. Only a woman hater will be able to do what they want him to do. And after this confirmation process he must hate women even more.

911 it is the feminiazis us right wingers don't um like. We love good women! Just not the man haters. 60 plus years of that nasty bs is enough. No wonder real men have a bad reaction to it.


Men will have their me too time one day as we prevent man haters from public office by throwing their past into court of public opinion.


Do into others is the law...


The Republican party is filled with good women many of whom do not believe this political attack. So please don't think all right wing men hate all women. This is not true. We just know how to respond to our female enemies who hate us. That small minority of mentally ill feminists the democrat party should part ways with. Those feminiazis are no different than klansmen in skirts. Your party is filled with bigoted haters so blinded by their own hate - presto instant OEN. Every post here today is all man hate.



The spin on this website has nothing to do with right and wrong. It is all we hate conservatives so make up any bs imaginable, and throw it out there. Raise hell about it hysterically crying wolf and hope something sticks.


We will do the same to your candidates with the same enthusiasm.

Bill, you are correct on this one.

The feminista vultures have come out on this one.Their usually constrained hate for men has been brought to the surface full throttle. It's all about agenda not truth.

I don't know if Kavanaugh is suited for office or not, I don't have all the FACTS.

People are ready to hang this guy based on emotions rather than a trial.

MerylAnn Butler won't be happy until the world is ruled by women. Be careful

Very right:

We can't have all the facts in the "express confirmation" that the Republican want. So, we can't know if he is suited for the job, right? Let us keep the hearings and investigation for six months, would you agree?

The coming political bloodbath is coming, just around the corner, almost palpable, as millions of women swing to the left as November approaches.


My esteem for Senators Leahy, Durbin, Blumenthal, Harris, and Booker have all gone up immensely. Lindsey Graham was a buffoon; Grassley almost monstrous in his indifference. I couldn't watch, and I am pretty thick skinned when it comes to watching hearings.


This video was from today. Remember that Patrick Leahy is the longest serving Senator presently in the Senate, and the 5th longest serving Senator in the history of the Senate.


Republicans seem to have forgotten that hundreds of millions of people have been watching their "rush job." What a price they will pay in November, even without this Kavanaugh travesty having occurred.


The whole thing is humiliating as I think of the world's reaction.



Sen. Leahy says the Senate Judiciary Committee is an arm of Trump White House Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., says the Senate Judiciary Committee is an arm, and a very weak arm, of the Trump White House..

Don't bet your house on it. Apparently you don't have much experiende with thinking women... the opposite will happen, as this kangaroo court changes nothing. Liberal hyberbole of "bloodbaths" is as far off base as the DNC philosophy of f*cking over the lives of working women while feigning as though they give a sh*t.

1. I really object to your apparent need to use profanity, in this generally collegial forum for discussion at OpEdNews.


2. I have had a great deal of experience with thinking women, especially those who vote. I have been involved in six winning Senate campaigns and four winning Gubernatorial campaigns, and have been involved in politics since I was 12 and that was 58 years ago.


3. Take a look at the results thus far in pre-midterm elections, because there is already plenty of proof of my "coming bloodbath" hypothesis right there.


4. Be sure to read the paper the day after the November Elections. My point will then be proved.


5. Did you even watch the video of Leahy speaking before you commented?


6. Does Senator Kamala Harris of California qualify in your mind as a "thinking woman"?

Actually, there's a school of thought that all these comedians are enabling the worst, most reactionary forces to ascend. After all, if you can laugh at something, it becomes subconsciously acceptable, even normalized. How bad can it be then? There's a saying among comedians that if you start hearing Holocaust jokes, you'll know the next Holocaust is not far off.

..and what she looks like shouldn't even matter. I just don't want another conservative on the Supreme Court. Period....and I was raised in a Republican household..I think I mentioned earlier in a post that my mother was Mrs. Goldwqter's Press Secretary during that campaign. I grew up with that 'education'. When I got old enough to register to vote I had to answer 'which party?' Well. What did I know? I registered Republican as my mother had told me in just a few words how good the Republicans were and how bad the Dem's were...but I found in election time, that I voted for who I wanted and not necessarily the 'party line'. That changed after Bush "won" the election (5-4) so I officially changed my party registration. Guess I showed them...

Just to be clear, my comment was only an acknowledgement of the uncanny resemblance between Dr. Ford and "Garth". Those who've seen Dana Carvey's character will see it right away, no matter how much they try to tune it out, and will find it hard not to find it amusing. This is probably due to the slightly "feminine" quality in the "Garth" character more than anything.

It wasn't an attempt to demean her for that resemblance. How to put it?... It is what it is, maybe?

I do understand the part about growing up with identity politics. It can be confusing in the process, until you discover your own thoughts later on.

As a life-long independent voter and a more recent opponent of party politics generally, I'm appalled by Rob's position. The real loss if Kavanaugh is not successfully seated is the law itself. The reversal of "innocent until proven guilty" to "guilty until proven innocent." Do you, Rob, or anyone else seriously think our country would be in a better place with this new law? This is ridiculous in the extreme.

This isn't about "innocent until proven guilty" or the reversal of it. This is a due diligence process. Indications of questionable activities are supposed to be investigated further as part of the due diligence process, that's how it works.

Well, the point is that Kavanaugh's poor treatment of women may be a trend if any or all of his accusers are accurate. So in due diligence, the idea is to vet the person for the position. If Kavanaugh has a long-standing tendency for sexual misconduct with women, then that needs to be addressed in due diligence. Frankly, the very quickest, easiest and cleanest way to dispense with all the mess, is for the innocent Kavanaugh to wholeheartedly encourage an investigation - which, if he knows he is innocent, he would also know would be of great benefit to him. But Kavanaugh and indeed the whole committee seem to be dead set against investigating. That doesn't convey a belief in his innocence.

Do you understand that the presumption of innocence applies to criminal trial?

If a patient said that I was rude and unprofessional I may not get the job in a hospital (or may lose one).

In Virginia if a doctor marries a former patient he may lose the license.

http://www.dhp.virginia.gov/Medicine/medicine_laws_regs.htm :

18VAC85-20-100. Sexual contact.

A. For purposes of 54.1-2915 A 12 and A 19 of the Code of Virginia and this section, sexual contact includes, but is not limited to, sexual behavior or verbal or physical behavior which:

1. May reasonably be interpreted as intended for the sexual arousal or gratification of the practitioner, the patient, or both; or


2. May reasonably be interpreted as romantic involvement with a patient regardless of whether such involvement occurs in the professional setting or outside of it.


B. Sexual contact with a patient


1. The determination of when a person is a patient for purposes of 54.1-2915 A 19 of the Code of Virginia is made on a case-by-case basis with consideration given to the nature, extent, and context of the professional relationship between the practitioner and the person. The fact that a person is not actively receiving treatment or professional services from a practitioner is not determinative of this issue. A person is presumed to remain a patient until the patient-practitioner relationship is terminated.


2. The consent to, initiation of, or participation in sexual behavior or involvement with a practitioner by a patient does not change the nature of the conduct nor negate the statutory prohibition.


C. Sexual contact between a practitioner and a former patient.


Sexual contact between a practitioner and a former patient after termination of the practitioner-patient relationship may still constitute unprofessional conduct if the sexual contact is a result of the exploitation of trust, knowledge, or influence of emotions derived from the professional relationship.


D. Sexual contact between a practitioner and a key third party shall constitute unprofessional conduct if the sexual contact is a result of the exploitation of trust, knowledge or influence derived from the professional relationship or if the contact has had or is likely to have an adverse effect on patient care. For purposes of this section, key third party of a patient shall mean: spouse or partner, parent or child, guardian, or legal representative of the patient.


E. Sexual contact between a medical supervisor and a medical trainee shall constitute unprofessional conduct if the sexual contact is a result of the exploitation of trust, knowledge or influence derived from the professional relationship or if the contact has had or is likely to have an adverse effect on patient care.


Not "guilty", just not acceptable for the job.

The obvious way around all this mansplaining is to only nominate women -- properly vetted, of course, free of rape allegations, use of male prostitutes, subscriptions to porn sites, lesbian or straight -- for all future Supreme Court vacancies.

As a male, I can say with absolute conviction, I'm tired of the patriarchy. Look at the world: savagery, aggression, war, constant testosterone-driven bullying and oppression. We need a fresh world view in play. We can start with SCOTUS, then move on to Congress and POTUS.

Whether Kavanaugh is guilty or not, he epitomizes assumptions about male privilege, specifically white male privilege. Both whites and males are minorities in this world. How about balancing out five millennia of masculine catastrophe with five millennia putting women in charge, preferably women of color. It's fair to say women couldn't possibly screw up the world as much as men have.

Let's get the ball rolling by rejecting this elitist darling (he can go home and pray for forgiveness of his enemies with his daughter), then demanding the resignation of the five males currently on the Supreme Court.

In some ways, I think some of what you are saying is in my book "Sophia's Web: A Passionate Quest to Heal Our Wounded Nature." Sophia = Wisdom. This does not mean a woman, per say. It means how Nature works......and I don't give a damn about a moon that is nothing more than rocks or Venus just having a gas filled atmosphere. I personally don't see a dead universe. When I gaze upon the moon, yes I don't see "moon men or women." I FEEL the living energy of the Moon and its partnership with the Earth that has fostered our lives. I'm probably going to far, but I do think that what you are leaning towards is real change....that's if women don't try to foster male power. Beyond my words, I truly think we need to turn our culture upside down.


I might be off the wall, but its what I see.

They would. They already have.

Today mothers have more rights and special privileged child access and control and extortion racket. And they lock men up today not because they committed a crime but just for being a sperm donor. Half the child DNA belongs to dad but those witches think they own our kids for their paying career and that fathers don't matter. Federal statistics on fatherless children prove the horrible national tragedy that is forced single motherhood fathers are cut out of giving special privileges to women. We will stop this if we can and reverse course back towards equal. But they don't want it that way.

Expect more.

If they had their way even more men would be behind bars on their word alone with zero proof of any crime.

So yeah it would be even more messed up than it already is now because of them.

Their poop stinks too. Does not matter if they think it don't. They are no better and democrats can't admit it.

I credit Mark Crispin Miller for this idea, learned this summer, which rings true for me.

Imagine the Republicans, 1966, a minority party for the last 30 years, and wondering how they ever might become a majority. After all, they represent the 1% and the Democrats represent the 99%. In some smokey back room, Richard Mellon Scaife and Bill Buckley, William Coors and the Koch brothers hatch a plan.

Infiltrate the Democratic Party. Agitate for civil rights for blacks. Divide the blacks from the whites. Agitate for women's rights. Divide the women from the men. Agitate on behalf of Muslims and East Asians and LGBTQs. Keep all the subgroups busy working for their own issues, demanding a bigger share of the pie.

Keep them distracted with identity politics while we rob them blind. Drive the middle class into debt, the lower class into serfdom. Increase the power and wealth of the 1% ever higher, ever stronger, and let the 99% bicker among themselves.

Maybe it happened in just this way, and maybe it didn't, but the result has been that, objectively, class divides form the greatest lines of conflict, but in the Talk of the Town, it's way down on the list. The 99% remains divided into interest groups, and we never come together to demand an end to union-busting, a return to taxing the rich, limits on monopoly capitalism, a European-style social safety net, ...

What does this have to do with the topic at hand? Kavanaugh is a reliable tool of the capitalists, a union-buster, a reliable de-regulator, promoting the rights of central authority at the expense of everyone else. But here we are, divided among ourselves, putting all our faith in the testimony of one brave woman who remembers an incident 36 years ago. Kavanaugh's economic leanings, on the record, should rule him out absolutely.

We seem to be missing a few comments that were placed on this thread earlier today.

Not sure what the reason for the censorship was, as no one deigned to inform me that one of my comments was fodder for the chopping block.

In this particular case, the offensive word was "idiot," near as I can tell. What will it be next time? "Clown"? "Weirdo," maybe? Who knows? The exercise itself has become increasingly more arbitrary as time goes by.

I feel the same way about the censorship that occurs unnecessarily on this site (or any other, for that matter) as I do about soy-powered cowards dressing in all black, wearing masks and sneaking around sites where statues and other historic relics stand, waiting for the right moment to destroy them all under cover of darkness, while giving the rest of humanity no say at all in what the fate of these often timeless works of art should be. I view such tactics as chickenshit--pure and simple. Erasing someone's words without so much as informing them that you are planning to do so, I regard with the same bilious contempt.

Just as the statues and other historic relics were erected to serve as reminders to future generations of the circumstances that led some in the past to act despicably, and others to operate with supreme honor...so, too, can these written exchanges serve to educate us about the differing points of view most of us possess.

We are navigating precipitous terrain, as regards the discretionary application of censorship, and how it applies these days at OEN. If nothing else, it serves to reinforce the idea that...

Diversity of thought has become subordinate to diversity of preference.

Any little thing their hyper sensitive feelings choose to get angry about and they deny freedom as if their unacceptable useless opinion will some how change us to be like them.


Hell no!

There was a time, Bill--as you well know--when people didn't get into a huge overblown panic about language and feel the need to parse every single syllable in an effort to make sure others are towing the line...just as there was a time when people didn't need to have their eyes plastered to a telephone screen 16 or more hours out of every 24 each day. And yet, somehow we survived back then. Flourished, actually--I insist--compared to the nonsense that goes on today.

While I do agree that there are certain things that should not be said in polite conversation, it definitely has reached the point where it's gone way too far with the censorship--here and many other places. When a small group of people have the ability to effectively erase history without providing any reason for doing so, it's gone too far. You have become what you claim to hate at that point--wittingly or otherwise.

My recommendation is that people should grow up. Now. The world is a cold, cruel place. The belief that you are going to make it warmer and safer somehow by censoring people's speech is a fallacy of purest ray serene.

It may make the person censoring feel better, but at what price to the rest of us, who have been deprived of whatever wisdom the stricken words may have offered. Censorship is a notable fascist tactic and never a progressive one. Anyone who thinks otherwise should go back to the drawing board, as it were, and begin learning all the history they missed the first time around--specifically, what wanton censorship represents and where it ultimately leads. It's all in there.

Censorship has only ever been a way for a small group of people to say, "You're going to think like me, whether you like it or not."

There is nothing progressive about that. Nothing at all. Quite the opposite, I contend.

Keep hyperventilating. The frightening, noxious, diabolical assembly of human protoplasm which passes for "leadership" in this country, and is accepted as some sort of new norma,l are an appalling testiment to how far we as citizens have migrated from basic decency and anything resembling moral consciousness.
