Broken Glass

In the aftermath of the latest failed attempt (by the New York Times) to perpetrate a vicious smear of SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh, people have been reminded of past attempts perpetrated by the Democrats and their trained hamsters in the media. And more than a few of those people are fed up — pissed off big time. John Kass, an actual journalist (as opposed to the partisan hacks who work for the NYT) for the Chicago Tribune is one of those people. He writes about the forces that motivated the NYT to lie, omit critical facts, and otherwise attempt to ruin Kavanaugh's reputation forever—all because he doesn't accept their Leftist world view:
The left lost control of the Supreme Court through the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, who has nominated two conservative justices and may nominate another if he’s reelected in 2020. Since 2016, the left has waged cultural war, delegitimizing all institutions that may stand in their way.

Theirs is a dangerous game with far-reaching implications, but the left reveals itself, clearly, as determined to destroy Kavanaugh’s credibility, and that of the Supreme Court itself, to protect past gains. Unhindered, in fact aided and cheered on by many in the media, the left proceeds on its scorched-earth strategy.

What is dangerous is that what is burned in their culture war are American institutions, and the scorched earth is the American republic ...

The left’s end game is the delegitimization of the Supreme Court, if justices don’t give them the political outcomes they can’t achieve through legislation.

One way to accomplish this is to sear into the American mind the idea that Kavanaugh is personally illegitimate, and therefore, his reasoning and decisions are illegitimate. Though the allegations against him remain uncorroborated, and most are incredible and fall apart in embarrassing fashion, like the one most recently in the Times, the assault continues.

And not only against Kavanaugh, but also against other justices and future nominees. They are warned that destruction and humiliation await.

So, the left would hang upon his neck an asterisk like some medal of shame, a reminder to future history that everything he accomplishes is illegitimate.
Democrat politicians condone this behavior, and their leftist supporters justify it because in their fever swamp of Trump Derangement Syndrome, an elected president (and his nominees, once confirmed) must be removed 'by any means necessary.'

Those of us who have observed this despicable behavior smile and nod when reading this tweet by @johnekdahl (who did not vote for Trump in 2016 and doesn't particularly like his style):

He won't be alone. #Walkaway.
