This week the left has set its sights on destroying President Donald Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. But any look at him might make you think he has led his life exactly the way liberals say we should all act.
First of all, there is not one, not a single reputable person, who says that Brett Kavanaugh is bad at his job of being a judge. Every intern, every colleague, every foe says that he is a serious, standup member of the judiciary.
Indeed, he has even been awarded the highest recommendation by the left-wing American Bar Association.
Here is what the ABA said of him only days ago:
The ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary on Friday gave its highest rating of well-qualified to Kavanaugh, a 53-year-old judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Kavanaugh was nominated July 9 to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who announced his retirement June 27. Kavanaugh is a former Kennedy clerk.
The ABA standing committee evaluates nominees based on professional competence, integrity and judicial temperament.
But, even if they won’t take the word of the left-leaning ABA, liberals seem to be ignoring all the PC-like things Kavanaugh has done throughout his law career.
Recently, Katie Pavlich outlined all the things that Kavanaugh has done that liberals would ordinarily love, at least as far as being “fair” in his business.
Her is what Pavlich reported:
- The majority of his law clerks have been women
- Judge Kavanaugh’s clerks are diverse
- His mother was a teacher in a minority school during the Civil Rights Movement
- He’s backed by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
- Serious legal scholars on the left, including Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, support him
- Law students love him

“Judge Kavanaugh is remarkably committed to promoting women in the legal profession… As his former law clerk to the Committee, the legal profession is fair and more equal because of Judge Kavanaugh.” -Lisa Blatt pic.twitter.com/zlMjjaXaGm

Now, of course none of this means he adjudicates things in a left-leaning manner. In all his cases he generally “reads the law” and then rules according to that law — meaning he is an “originalist” in-as-much as he actually follows the law. This is quite unlike liberal judges who read a law and then try to see how they can change it to fit a left-wing agenda.
But, the way he leads his life — color blind, age blind, gender blind — these are all the things liberals say they want in leaders.
So, what can we take away from all this? Well, nothing less than the fact that liberals are liars. They don’t care about being fair to women, or minorities. All they care about is pushing their left-wing agenda.
Once again we see the empty lies in the left’s rhetoric.
