Meet Brett Kavanaugh, a multiply-documented liar who was steamrolled into the Supreme Court by the GOP over the massively credible objections for Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her as a drunken youth.
Many defenses were made by the Cult, including the beloved, “Liberals are merciless to ‘youthful indiscretions’ of conservatives” (the term for sexual assaults made by rich white boys). As with the famous rapist Brock Turner, we were instructed to think of his future, his potential, all the good he could do if a merciless world would just overlook the foibles of youth and give him his fundamental human right to a position on the Supreme Court and not
hold him responsible for his actions cancel him. Above all, we were told, his status as a conservative Catholic justice would surely bring us the end of Roe, because the most gullible political cultus on the planet refuses to face the fact that our abortion regime is 100% the creation of a GOP court that has not only been existence for 50 years, but which entrenched that regime in 1992 when the Court was 8-1 GOP with a prolife Democrat.
And so, the GOP rammed him through.
Result: in addition to refusing to consider Roe (as was utterly predictable) Kavanaugh just wrote the SCOTUS opinion dooming children to life in prison without parole. Because only the sons of privilege shall receive mercy or pity in this life if the MAGA cult has anything to say about it:
Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents; and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, ‘Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’ And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’ So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’ He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt. When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart. (Matthew 18:23-35)
Of course, not a word will be heard from the “prolife” cult about these kids, except to defend the sadism and cruelty and to make pathetic excuses like “At least they were not aborted” or to claim that they have it coming.
Do these MAGA servants of antichrist not fear God?
PS: Fun fact: Life without parole violates Church teaching.
I remember Rush Limbaugh on one occasion saying that young people up on serious charges were not “children”, well ok maybe legally but not really. He explicitly said that they weren’t kids because they were big, and implied that they weren’t because they were dark skinned, and that made them dangerous.
Nothing new here…
Just another example of the “justice” system being stacked against victims of abuse. Abusers purposely warp the minds of their victims and make them believe they have no recourse (which, let’s be honest, they probably don’t have any recourse, based on my experiences with police and the court system). Then if (not when, but if) the victim gets to a point where they lash out in what their mind believes is self-defense, THAT is when the “justice” system decides to throw the book. NOT at the initial abuse, but when the victim lashes out.
The other day I saw Raymond Arroyo, sycophant extraordinaire, making fun of Joe Biden showing Jill affection. He picked a wildflower for her! Surely a sign of his liberal wickedness. In the meantime, serial adulterer Donny, the second coming of Constantine, continues on the path to sainthood.
What was it again you asked about these people and their fear of God?
A catholic cannot in good conscience support a sentence of life with parol?
There will be a day of reckoning for all of the Brett Kavanaughs of this world. He astounds me.
I was watching one of those true crime stories a few days ago. There was a property dispute between two (white) siblings and the daughter of one of them. The mother “found” the gun, and the daughter (in her twenties) pulled the trigger, killing her uncle. The daughter was sentenced to 7 years in jail. The mother walked away scott free AND inherited the entire property that was the object of contention.
15 year old boys are children. My sixth and last son is almost 15. He has a pretty good head on his shoulders –but after weathering the teens and twenties of ALL of them, we have coined a term:
Right now the almost 15-year-old is crouched in a corner of the deck listening to an audio book thinking I don’t know where he is. He doesn’t want to finish his homework.
My husband had a hissy fit about what our 21 year-old did two nights ago: he ran through our neighbor’s yard in his boxers, brandishing an AX.
We awoke to the screams of a cat that was being attacked by a fox. That cat was making the most ungodly animal sounds I’ve ever heard in my life. It literally sounded like a screaming woman. After my husband admonished him for running half naked with an ax onto somebody else’s property, he shrugged proudly and said, “I saved the cat’s life”.
Their brain lobes are still not communicating with each other properly, at that age.
Jesus warned us that we will be judged with the same degree of harshness/leniency that we meted out to others. Can you imagine what will happen to the effortlessly unfair discrimination that comes with white entitlement? Scary.
FWIW: A screaming fox can sound like a screaming woman in terrible distress.
It’s a very funny image, but he was trying to do a kindness.
Yeah. After he said that he saved the cat’s life, I said “but you ruined the fox’s day.”
He said, “oh Mama, she has the cuuuuuutest kits, I’ve already brought her steak.” He explained to me that she lives at the end of our street, and when he saw her babies he had to bring an offering. Not kidding.
“Maybe hate is what we need.”
–Donald Trump after taking out a full page newspaper ad calling for the execution of the Central Park Five
Yah. Someone asked him about that ad after the CP5 got exonerated. He said he still stands by it.
creeps be creeps
while I don’t agree with or condone all of their political stances….they nailed it with this one…
Everyone who hopped aboard the Trump Train thought they would be able to take more out of him than he would take out of them. They figured some time in the Spring of 2015 that if they couldn’t stop him, they may as well *use* him.
The only group that was correct about that was economic libertarians who wanted big tax cuts and business de-regulation.
Everyone else has been had, including pro-lifers.
Yes even the anti-immigration people. His immigration policy amounted to a lot of noise and some minor tweaks. All they got was a vicarious thrill every time he talked about “the wall” or said something mean about foreigners. That’s it.
But marks take a long time to admit that they were conned, and sometimes never do, out of pure personal pride. They don’t want to admit they were that stupid. That explains a lot of the GOP and American conservative movement right now.
