'Insane, Disgusting': Ben Shapiro Takes on Left's Kavanaugh 'Witch Hunt'
Says Dems 'deserve no respect' for Kavanaugh tactics.
Ben Shapiro called out the left's "insane, disgusting" attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, singling out columnist Maureen Dowd, top Democrat Dianne Feinstein and others.
In remarks on MSNBC, former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) criticized Kavanaugh's "anger" at last week's Senate hearing, arguing his remarks portrayed a man who "you could see attacking a woman."
Shapiro said the left could paint Kavanaugh as a "rapist" no matter how he reacted to the allegations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
"If Kavanaugh wasn't angry at being called a rapist, that would probably mean he's a rapist, according to the left. If he got angry, that would also probably mean he was a rapist," said Shapiro, calling out Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif.) for inviting actress Alyssa Milano to sit in the audience and "scowl" while Kavanaugh testified and forcefully denied the allegations.
"This is the mark of a very serious senator. ... Democrats have earned no respect. They deserve no respect. They have lied and they have slandered Brett Kavanaugh for weeks."
Shapiro said Senate Democrats have been aided for weeks by left-wing members of the media, including New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd who argued in a Friday op-ed:
Kavanaugh echoed Thomas’s martyrdom, claiming he was being “destroyed” by partisans conspiring to dig up dirt. He charged that Democrats were conducting a “grotesque and coordinated character assassination” because of their anger about President Trump’s ascent and their desire for revenge after his own seamy work helping Ken Starr in his pervy pursuit of Bill Clinton.
It was a cri de coeur custom-made for the age of Trump — and custom-designed to please Trump himself: entitled white men acting like the new minority, howling about things that are being taken away from them, aggrieved at anything that diminishes them or saps their power.
Shapiro said Kavanaugh is rightfully angry that Democrats have sought to strip him of his rights to due process and the presumption of innocence.
"To suggest ... that white men are not entitled to such rights because they're members of a disfavored group? We have a word for that: it's called sexism and racism."
