Yes, I can support sexual assault victims and believe Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed

A week ago today, I wrote about the trap that liberals are trying catch conservatives in: Either you believe the unsubstantiated sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh lock, stock and barrel without questions, or you are anti-feminist. You are pro-sexual assault. You are heartless, unkind, unsympathetic, the character assaults against you are relentless.

In recent days, those cries have gotten stronger and louder. Which is why I want to go on record saying those who want to stand up for truth, justice and fairness need to stand by Brett Kavanaugh and not be bullied or shamed themselves. There has been zero, let me repeat that: ZERO, substantiating evidence to back-up any claim of misconduct, whereas there are mountains of reasons to have questions and doubts. Including, but not limited to, statements from everybody involved in Kavanaugh’s life during that period of time and since. There are questions in the consistency, or more importantly the inconsistency, of the statements that the accuser has made both then and now.
One must also question the way that this has all played out as political theatre orchestrated by the Democrats in the Senate. These are the same people who have spent millions of dollars and weeks trying to keep the Kavanaugh nomination off the floor for a vote because of their opposition to his experience and policy positions as a Constitutionalist. When they couldn’t de-rail his nomination based on the merits of his record, they are now counting on these allegations to be his ultimate undoing.
I stand with Kavanaugh. That doesn’t mean I don’t support victims of sexual assault because I have and I always will.
I stand for a country in which people are not bullied and intimidated for their political beliefs. I stand and ask for fairness and justice when discussing important life changing issues such as accusations such as these. I stand for a world in which honorable men and women don’t need to worry about having their life’s work tarnished by those who disagree with them.
It is an important time in our country with a lot of critical decisions facing the court. The senate needs to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and to do it in a timely manner.
I hope people get wise to weaponization of sexual assault, which has been normalized as of late, and recognize that there are some who would use a false accusation as a tool in their arsenal meant to destroy the reputation and opportunities of good people they simply disagree with.
I hope as a Alabama resident our U.S. Senator Doug Jones confirms Kavanaugh and doesn’t allow himself to be bullied into opposition.
