Washington, DC – The Washington Post’s latest attempt to gaslight the country came in the form of a boldly false op-ed: “Republicans boast they have not pulled a Kavanaugh. In fact, they’ve treated Ketanji Brown Jackson worse” the Post Editorial Board unironically writes.
According to the liberal Washington Post’s editorial board: “A woman credibly accused Mr. Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Democrats rightly asked the committee to investigate… In the end, it was Mr. Kavanaugh who behaved intemperately, personally attacking Democratic senators and revealing partisan instincts that raised questions about his commitment to impartiality.
By contrast, Republicans have smeared Judge Jackson based on obvious distortions of her record and the law. Mr. Graham and others painted her as a friend of child pornographers, despite the fact that her sentences in their cases reflect the judicial mainstream.”
With friends like that in the media, the Democratic party certainly does not have to work very hard to distort the truth.
AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom said: “Welcome to the Democrats’ alternate reality in which the opposite of the truth is their truth. The attempts to disparage Justice Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings reached a new low, even for the leftists in Congress. Comparing their treatment at all, let alone claiming that Jackson has been treated worse, is gaslighting to the highest degree. The Washington Post should rescind their editorial.”
Voices on the right and voiced criticism of the Post’s lie.
According to Stacey Williams a self-described formal liberal in her recent piece “WaPo Enters Gaslighting Hall of Shame With Obscene Comparison of Jackson and Kavanaugh Hearings”: “In an ideal world, Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation ordeal would go down as one of the most shameful moments in the history of SCOTUS confirmation hearings. But we don’t live in an ideal world. More to the point, our media is so far removed from any semblance of ideal, and in fact, could not in good faith even be described as passably honest in their analyses of these matters.”
“For years, on these and numerous lower court nominations, Democrats have been playing by a different set of rules, and everyone including the Washington Post knows it. The difference is that the Post just doesn’t care” Kaylee McGhee Deputy editor of Restoring America wrote.
Chris Houck of NewsBusters tweeted about the shameful editorial: “If you’re a journalist and you want to convince people that your profession isn’t the enemy of the people, you’re going to have to address and root out stuff like this from the Washington Post.”
Democratic leaders hope to confirm Judge Jackson before their expected break for Easter recess on April 8th.
Senate Republican McConnell said in a statement: “I went into the Senate’s consideration of Judge Jackson’s nomination with an open mind. But after studying the nominee’s record and watching her performance this week, I cannot and will not support Judge Jackson for a lifetime appointment to our highest court.”
AMAC Action strongly opposes Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court and will continue to help set the record straight as the Democratic media complex continues to mislead.
