It is said that rape is one of the oldest weapons of war, and so it remains today. Well not so much the act itself, as that’s more the purview of our migrant moral exemplars. Soon-to-be formerly civilized societies tend to instead deploy the accusation of rape as a weapon in our internecine conflicts.
As a military proof-of-concept, #MeToo revealed the impressive lethality of sexual accusation. That this power could be wielded against more than just the most obnoxious and prolific targets did not go unnoticed by perceptive war planners.
The fact is that very few effective weapons are left lying on the sidewalk, no matter how distasteful their use. As a result, I have been waiting with unabated breath for its inevitable firing against innocent men.
In this case I’m alluding to Brett Kavanaugh, whose innocence is obviously unverifiable to me and every foaming Bolshevik now condemning him. None of us can or will know whether a drunken teenaged soirée produced an uninvited breast squeeze 36 years ago. Though if he were still alive, I’m sure Tennyson would commemorate the assault in verse more lurid than the Crimean War.
But since we can never know what actually happened, the more practical question becomes what precisely will be the Geneva Conventions for military accusations going forward? I am advised that that question is contingent on the ‘credibility’ of the claims. Yet since the ostensibly ‘credible’ accuser in this case was intoxicated, doesn’t know where it happened, when it happened, or who it happened with, that term is obviously elastic to the point of uselessness.
So what is the socially permissible boundary of sexual accusations? Are they celestial in nature: endless, eternal, and always expanding? Or are women under any moral obligation to bring their complaints forward in a time and manner that makes fair adjudication a reasonable possibility?
Can any woman make a ‘credible’ claim of violation against any man at any time? Of the approximately 160 million
American women in America, how many could make a similar claim against Kavanaugh within the parameters the left has explicitly accepted as definitive in this instance? Those parameters being a plausible (but not corroborated) claim to having once been in a room with him. I would guess that number is many thousands, possibly a million.
Though even if innocent, Kavanaugh isn’t entirely blameless. A more thoughtful teenager might have realized that nearly four decades later unfalsifiable sex offenses would become tools for political warfare. As such he would need to take certain precautions: 1) Behave always as a gentleman, 2) Record interactions with all females on VHS tape (knowing beta would not emerge as the market dominant format), 3) Maintain this warehouse of video archives until it could be transferred first to CDs, then DVDs, then finally to a secure cloud storage application, 4) Retrieve exculpatory footage from the date, time, and location his accuser does not know, and so will be useless for Senatorial interrogation. 5) Go back and also record all interactions of your future accuser.
Ohh well, I thought maybe there was something he could have done to protect himself. Alas, there was not and so democrats are left with no choice but to presume the worst.
So by the logic now displayed on twitter and other intellectual enclaves,
American men in America are compelled to live under a sexual Sword of Damocles for all their lives at the fickle sufferance of whatever women they meet or do not. Fortunately we are assured most victimization claims will be valid, and so those women who are otherwise liars, grifters, psychopaths, or Soros-funded political assassins must simply be left to their wandering. After all, the large majority of men will never even get to know their parole board.
Though liberals do have a solution for that cold comfort. As with Kavanaugh, they explain that innocent men should want—no demand—criminal investigation for sex crimes they didn’t commit. See, the personal paralyzation and career ruination triggered by an investigation, the stress of a criminal trial, and the possibility of an innocent conviction may be terrifying, but just think how refreshed you’ll feel when you’re (probably) acquitted of what you already know you didn’t do! Ahh, there’s really nothing quite like it. Liberals have many such prudent ideas.
All of those ideas being in service to retaining the supreme branch of government, by which practically their entire agenda has been advanced. Because when the left says Our Democracy, they mean a democracy of nine. And that’s a precious institution to defend indeed.
This all leaves quite a conundrum. As an honorable anti-fascist, do you drive a deeper wedge of hostility and paranoia between the sexes, foment rape hysteria among females, and hold every man as a lifetime hostage to evidence-free accusations, all simply to scuttle a nominee? Or do you work to actually lessen the incidence of rape by restricting the migrant intake from those cultures most disposed to it?
I think we know the answer. Kavanaugh must be stopped.
