Latest smear against Kavanaugh is part of left's scorched-earth strategy

By John Kass, Tribune Content Agency on

Just a few days before The New York Times and Democratic presidential candidates engaged in an outrageous smear of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -- a smear the newspaper was forced to amend and walk back -- there was a gruesome discovery in a suburb south of Chicago.

Out in a garage in Crete, Illinois, authorities found the remains of 2,246 babies on property owned by the late Indiana abortionist Dr. Ulrich Klopfer. His family had been going through his possessions when they discovered the stuff of nightmares.

The Times' Kavanaugh smear was deliciously exposed in a series of tweets by journalist Mollie Hemingway, senior writer for The Federalist. The panic of the Times sucked up most of the prominent media/political oxygen over the weekend.

And if Klopfer's demonic cache of human bodies wasn't ignored, exactly, it was consigned to the far edge of things, where we keep our monstrosities at bay.

What, if anything, connects these seemingly unrelated events?



Abortion is what Klopfer engaged in, as did many others before him, including the infamous Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia, who snipped the spines of infants with scissors and kept his trophies and was sentenced to life in prison.

And abortion is what this smearing of Kavanaugh has always been about.

The left lost control of the Supreme Court through the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, who has nominated two conservative justices and may nominate another if he's re-elected in 2020. Since 2016, the left has waged cultural war, delegitimizing all institutions that may stand in their way.

Theirs is a dangerous game with far-reaching implications, but the left reveals itself, clearly, as determined to destroy Kavanaugh's credibility, and that of the Supreme Court itself, to protect past gains. Unhindered, in fact aided and cheered on by many in the media, the left proceeds on its scorched-earth strategy.
