Kavanaugh: A Political Backfiring?

Ever since the election of Donald Trump, it's no secret that there has been a barrage of political stunts aimed at trying to undermine the results of Trump's presidency. 

But, have the Democrats gone too far this time? 

First, trying to block tax cuts was a predictable move that everyone understood. Blocking the wall being built, of course. Putting illegals ahead of American citizens? Well, it began a massive movement in the wake of that called the #WalkAway campaign, which was begun by Brandon Straka. By then, Americans were beginning to wake up and see the reality of what the Democratic party had reduced themselves to: 


Where did it make sense to stand on a hill where illegals were deemed more important than American citizens? Here, in America where children are starving. Where real problems such as drug abuse tears families apart. Realities that people deal with every day, are far from the democrat policies being focused on. Instead, Democrats choose to exploit people. 

When the #metoo movement started, it began as a conversation to open up about the struggles women faced as victims of sexual abuse or rape in the wake of Harvey Weinstein's exposure as a sexual predator. I believe that the movement, which began as a form of opening up conversation for women who survived these attacks, got hijacked and exploited as a political weapon. The Democrats saw an opportunity to exploit a movement for political optics and a desperate attempt to hold onto power. 

And that's where we are with Brett Kavanaugh and the massive circus that ensued to block a confirmation. All to save a SCOTUS seat in the hopes of maintaining power. REAL victims, who not only survived the worst part of their lives, get hurt all over again by the political character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh. 

Did this stunt work out the way the Democrats intended? Or are they headed for electoral extinction? The real world is so much different than online media.  

While in a coffee shop, I overheard a group of people talking about the Kavanaugh hearings. 

"I don't believe Dr. Ford"

"I'm disappointed that we wasted a hearing and destroyed a man's family off allegations" another woman commented. 

Another woman, "What about being innocent until proven guilty? Are we supposed to believe women don't lie? What about our sons or our husbands? It could happen to anyone." 

These are the real conversations happening around America. People from all walks of life, are engaging in open conversations. An unintended side effect of the entire sham circus, is that for the first time since the election of Donald Trump, people are opening up in earnest conversations. 

Twitter also had many people commenting they were done with the Democrats after this week. 


It is clear that the political stunt angered many people, from all walks of life. Minorities, real victims, and even liberals.  

Will this stunt cost the Democrats the midterms? 

As Brett Kavanaugh stated in his testimony, "You sowed the wind for decades, and i fear the whole country will reap the whirlwinds."

The midterms will certainly speak of historical significance as November inches closer. Perhaps even, a birth of a new revolution that brings the country back from the edge of political divide- a Democrats worst nightmare.
