Tucker: Isn't Kavanaugh entitled to due process?
"The Crucible" by Arthur Miller is about the Salem witch trials. He wrote it in response to the McCarthy hearings back in the 1950s. Between the RussiaGate conspiracy theory and the hysteria regarding sexual accusations, it seems that our society is right back in that kind of a mindset. The difference is that in the 1950s it was the conservatives who were to blame. Now it is the progressive liberals pushing us into moral panic mode.

Kavanaugh Did Nothing Wrong
Towards the last several minutes of this video this guy suggests that the hysteria over Kavanaugh by the Left qualifies as a true moral panic. I tend to agree. They are not thinking rationally and are so desperately clinging to their liberal values that they will do and say and believe anything in order to block Kavanaugh. The host goes on to say that although Trump may be a belligerent blowhard, he's exactly what we need at this time in order to withstand libtard bullying.

pcslim: Excellent video. This whole me too movement crap is nothing but a huge moral panic. Our entire country is in the middle of a sexual hysteria that is so irrational that it's just plain dumb! This urge to dig up cases from decades ago and to adjudicate them as if they happened last week is obsession taken to an extreme. Trump is the right person at this time to push back against the insanity of the liberal media.
