Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Remember Dan Rather, who insisted the letters showing President Bush lied about his military service were “fake but accurate?”
Remember the Cindy Sheehan, the Code Pink lady who protested at President Bush’s ranch because her son died in the war in Iraq?
Remember David Hogg, the kid who hid in the closet during the school shooting and became a national spokesman for gun control?
They were hot topics, media sensations, invited on all the news shows. Their every utterance was treated as having absolute moral authority and cited by Democrat politicians as proof of the urgency to enact Liberal policies. But none of those people are in the news anymore. It’s as if they never existed. They were used as props and discarded the moment they were no longer useful.
And now we have Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers. That’s enough to temporarily resurrect Anita Hill, the woman who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings. She won’t be in the limelight long. She’s old news, too.
What is wrong with those people, that they’re willing to be exploited and later abandoned, merely to get a few seconds of attention? Have they no pride?
What is wrong with those people who are willing to exploit and later abandon innocents who merely want a few seconds of attention? Have they no shame?
Because it’ll be different with them…
