Well, I never!
Kavanaugh Questioned in 1985 After Bar Fight — for Throwing Ice
Why, clearly, this man does NOT possess the necessary “judicial temperament,” as the shitlibs are saying. Even though he’s been a respected judge for decades now.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh (shown above left) was questioned by authorities in 1985 following an altercation at a bar after a UB40 concert, according to The New York Times. He was accused of throwing ice on another individual in a tussle at a bar along with his friend Chris Dudley (above right), who later became a player for the NBA.
Kavanaugh was an undergraduate in his junior year at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut, at the time of the September 1985 incident. The New Haven Police Department questioned him and four others, but no one was arrested and no charges were filed.
“Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him ‘for some unknown reason,’” said The Times article.
Okay, this dumpster-diving nonsense is actually getting kind of funny at this point. Can the heavy-breathing twatburgers at the NYT really think ancient-history hijinks like this matter to even the slightest degree to anybody all these years later—Kavanaugh included? Do they seriously mean to propose that having been young and perhaps a little rowdy once should disqualify one for service on the USSC as an adult? Do they really think the kind of juiceless, timid, sheltered dweebs that apparently inhabit big-city newsrooms must be the only ones making decisions regarding the laws that affect the lives of those of us who actually DO get out into the rough-and-tumble real world now and then?
Never mind that last one, it sort of answers itself.
Bottom line update! Here’s what it’s really all about:
Aside from the Left’s vicious and venal assault on Kavanaugh and his family, another ulterior motive has been at play over the past few weeks. It is “Revenge of the Nerds, Swamp Edition.” Duckie versus Blaine. Farmer Ted versus Jake Ryan. Booger versus Ogre. Except this time, dweeby Democratic lawmakers and their media Geek Squad have piled on to the SCOTUS Prom King, and it isn’t pretty. Decades of pent-up hostility for being ignored, depantsed and stuffed in lockers came frothing to the top of our national political dialogue.
Brett Kavanaugh is the guy the dorks love to hate, and they still resent him. He was a three-sport athlete and top student—”busted my butt in school,” he told Whitehouse—and obviously very well-liked. Legions of friends, both men and women, have come to his defense. Old girlfriends have attested to his character and manners. “I’ve been friends with Brett Kavanaugh for over 35 years, and dated him during high school,” wrote Maura Kane. “In every situation where we were together he was always respectful, kind and thoughtful. We remain good friends and I admire him as a husband, father, and professional.”
Sadly for the nerds, Kavanaugh’s charmed life did not end after graduation. He went on to the Ivy Leagues, worked in the Bush White House, and became a federal judge. The fact Kavanaugh is also a devout churchgoer, a volunteer at homeless shelters, marathon-runner, kids’ basketball coach, husband, and father to two beautiful little girls only made the dorks more mad. They are fuming that this party boy, and not they, will be in a position of power instead of selling cars like all party boys should be.
Kelly’s point here might seem frivolous at first blush, but I think there’s more to it than might initially be apparent. The NYT’s sniffy “gotcha” mentioned up top inadvertently reveals the deep-seated resentment and envy underlying their cheap “scoop”; the bolded part above reads like a list from the Left’s All Things Anathema handbook. And envy has always been one of the primary gears driving the Progressivist machinery. For booger-eating Lefty pencilnecks, what’s not to hate about a guy like Kavanaugh?
