For those of us old enough to remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings, this attempt to smear Brett Kavanaugh is disgustingly familiar.
The Dems have opened their playbook to repeat the Anita Hill pubic hair on the coke can sexual harassment skit that almost torpedoed Thomas. This time it’s worse; the accuser pathetically goes back to his teen years for her story about potential rape. What’s next? Kindergarten capers?
We expect this nonsense from Democrats, but what the hell is “Republican” Senator Jeff Flake doing by joining in?
It smells like spite. Flake hates Trump and apparently would enjoy ruining a man to get his revenge.
When Flake ran for the Senate in 2012 we were told he was a reliable conservative by no less than self appointed expert in all things conservative Glenn Beck. One of the reasons was because Flake is a Mormon. Not just a Mormon, but a devout one and a family man, according to accounts.
But when you point fingers at someone like Flake is doing, more of them are pointing back at you.
It appears this family man’s son, Tanner, liked to post homophobic, anti Semitic and racists tweets. According to the New York Daily News, he has said:
“To the f—-t who stole my dirt bike from the church parking lot, I will find you, and I will beat the crap out of you,” the boy, whose Twitter handle is @tflakey, wrote on March 20, 2013.
“I’m down to own some f—-ts,” he wrote a tweet directed at another Twitter user.
His tweets also included an anti-Semitic message directed at an undisclosed Twitter user.
“Say something hilarious, and I guarantee that … will say it louder and get all the credit. Jew,” he tweeted in February.
Ariz. Sen. Jeff Flake said in a statement of his son’s postings: “This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well.”
In a series of Facebook postings, riddled with “f—-t” and “n—-r,” the boy also bragged about his famous dad.
He boasted that he could talk to his father about a “crappy bill” his Facebook friend was protesting.
BuzzFeed also reported that the teenager used the screen name “n1—rkiller” in Fun Run, a gaming app on which he was active.
But, as they say, that’s not all.
Another son, Austin, and his wife were charged with animal cruelty in the deaths of 21 dogs in a Phoenix area kennel.
The two were in charge of it while the owners, the wife’s parents, were vacationing. The charges against them were later dropped, but apparently there was some degree of inattention that led the dogs to suffer heat exhaustion and suffocate.
So much for family values. Tell that to the people owning the beloved pets.
Flake himself has not lived up to his promise to his Arizona constituents to be a reliable conservative in the Senate. Isn’t that immoral? Why should he now be in charge of assessing all things honest and upright?
If there is justice, this trumped up charges against Kavanaugh will be dismissed and he will be confirmed.
At least all this discord is showing us who is honest and just in our government.
