The media has been off-the-charts sick over the Kavanaugh hearings. It seems to be that they find it perfectly acceptable and permissible to libel and slander Judge Brett Kavanaugh over unfounded sexual assault claims from 36 years ago. But they took it even further and this is just despicable.
I saw a headline from USA Today a couple of days ago that I just couldn’t believe. These witch-hunt hearings have ravaged Kavanaugh’s life and family. Not to mention justice in general. Now, USA Today is insinuating that Kavanaugh is a pedophile and should not be allowed to coach girl’s basketball anymore… something he dearly loves doing.
The title is: “Opinion: Is Brett Kavanaugh right that he can no longer coach girls basketball?” Kavanaugh has two young daughters. I’m sure they are already being harassed and tormented at school over all these accusations and now this surfaces.
USA Today should be ashamed for publishing such falsehoods. But they won’t be. The media considers this war and if a good man and his reputation have to be sacrificed, they think it’s a very small price to pay. After all, it’s not their lives on the line here.
USA Today put out a vile tweet over this: “From @usatodaysports: “The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around,” writes @ByErikBrady.” And just like that… the media labels Kavanaugh a pedophile. They should be sued into the hereafter over that smear.
Kavanaugh testified that he might not be able to coach girl’s basketball anymore because his name has been dragged through the political mud. That looks to be true considering that the media and the left are now pushing it.
Just listen to what USA Today said:
“Brett Kavanaugh testified the other day that he might never coach girls’ basketball again.
“He shouldn’t – at least not until further investigation has concluded.
“The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around.
“I love coaching more than anything I’ve ever done in my whole life,” Kavanaugh said in his opening statement on Thursday.
“But thanks to what some of you on this side of the committee have unleashed, I may never be able to coach again.”
“He just might be right. Oh, not the part about blaming Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee – that’s just to avoid placing blame on his wholly sympathetic accuser – but the may-never-coach-again part.
“The nation is newly vigilant on who coaches and trains its children given recent scandals in gymnastics and other sports.
“Kavanaugh is free to continue coaching in the Catholic Youth Organization and his daughters’ private school in Washington because he has no criminal record and has met all other volunteer requirements, according to Edward McFadden, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Washington. He said a coach dealing with allegations that are decades’ old and no criminal case is active – like Kavanaugh – would have to go through the full legal process before being banned.
“McFadden added that coaches arrested, charged or in the midst of a criminal probe for serious criminal acts, such as assault, abuse or child endangerment, are subject to removal pending “an immediate evaluation of the matter” by the school, school or the archdiocese’s Office of Child Protection.
“McFadden told USA TODAY Sports’ A.J. Perez on Friday that “adult volunteers with extensive contact with children” go through fingerprinting, criminal background checks and training under what is called the VIRTUS program.
“The person is VIRTUS-trained,” McFadden said of Kavanaugh, “and has gone through a background check, which was clean.”
“Besides, McFadden said he thinks Kavanaugh’s reference to not being able to coach again is related to protesters who shout down political figures in restaurants and other public spaces.
“It may be impossible for him to coach,” McFadden said. “Imagine being in a public gym where people could come in and be disrupting. I’m not sure he was referring to the claim (of sexual misconduct), but the overall environment. He has no record and has no criminal background. He’s gone through the (training) process. He can coach.’”
Kavanaugh can’t even really defend himself over all of this because these baseless accusations should never have been aired without proof, to begin with. The left did it to Clarence Thomas and to Roy Moore too. You don’t see the right pulling this kind of unethical crap and destroying someone’s life like this.
The MSM has gone way too far and they have earned the hatred and distrust of most of America. You don’t ever come back from some mistakes.
