Dirty Politics Taints Both Kavanaugh, Dr. Ford
While I am certainly disappointed with the results of a recent Lowell Sun survey where respondents in our community said Judge Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court, albeit by the slimmest majority, I am not surprised. People’s opinions are shaped by their perceptions. Where most newspapers, broadcast and cable news outlets, plus Ivory Tower celebrities and sports figures are against anything having to do with Trump, it is logical that people would be so affected. It has long been a liberal tactic that if you saturate people’s consciousness with a message in time they will come to believe it is true, even if it may not be so.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh’s lone accuser of an alleged incident that may (or may not) have taken place 30+ years ago while they were both under age and in high school, has regrettably gotten her more than she bargained for. She has, I suspect, unwittingly let herself be manipulated by vulgar partisans and no-holds-barred liberal ideologues and is being swept along in a wave of dirty politics to the point where her own and Judge Kavanaugh’s lives may both be negatively and permanently affected.
