    Im An Immigrant, Minority Woman Going Republican Over Democrats Treatment Of Kavana

    Im An Immigrant, Minority Woman Going Republican Over Democrats Treatment Of Kavanaugh

    This is the opinion of one woman. I have heard many other democrat women have come to the same conclusion.

    I have become a unicorn. My metamorphosis didnt require a magic spell or potion, or even a trip to a well-reviewed plastic surgeon to add a horn to my head. All it took was Democrats treatment of Brett Kavanaugh over the last few weeks to turn me into that elusive creature: a minority, immigrant woman who supports Republicans.


    I moved to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago eight years ago when I married my husband, Christopher, former U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalias eighth (and, in my opinion, most lovable) child. Some people might read that and think, Well, thats no surprise then; Justice Scalias daughter-in-law is hardly likely to be anything but Republican!


    But they would be wrong. Ive always considered myself politically moderate: I am unapologetically pro-life, but my views on affirmative action, Black Lives Matter, and gun control made me sympathize strongly with Democratic perspectives and occasionally led to arguments with my husband and father-in-law.


    That sense of political homelessness was a big reason that I was never in a hurry to become an American citizen. I figured Id do it eventually, but not having a strong connection to either party, feeling unsure of where I fit into Americas strange political landscape, meant it was low on my list of priorities.


    Fast-forward to 2018, and Kavanaughs nomination to the Supreme Court. Protests and vows to block him by any means, using every available tool, followed almost immediately. Anybody paying attention knew that things were about to get interesting. Unfortunately, things got less interesting than ugly and convinced me that Democrats are not who they claim to be.


    The party that established itself as a champion for the voiceless, powerless, and wrongfully accused, betrayed its values and launched a vicious attack on Kavanaugh that left him voiceless, powerless, and completely incapable of defending himself. Against all logic and good faith, they released uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct to the public, counting on the backdrop of the Me Too movement to make them that much harder to criticize or ignore. I still cannot reconcile these actions with the social and criminal justice reform platforms that Democrats campaign on.

    This point from the article resonated with me.

    Its impossible not to compare the way the process played out with Kavanaugh to what happened in 2016 with Merrick Garland, President Obamas nominee to replace my father-in-law. In similar, though not identical, circumstances, Republicans showed much more respect and restraint. Sure, they played hardball and refused to hold hearings for Garlands nomination, but they never sought to diminish the man. The Democrats have played a whole different and dishonorable game, one that has no rules and no winners.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    I might be a little of on this saying: "I have never saw a mob rush to the other side of town to help someone."

    Welcome to the Democratic Party.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Ive heard the liberals on MSNBC and CNN say that Democrats are going to receive a huge boost over this fiasco.

    They may in some house of rep races, but not so in Senate races. I can see the Republicans expanding their majority in the senate.

    Losing is not usually a winning thing, but if the Democrats take over the house of reps, but the Republcans expand their majority in the senate, things could be very interesting. Losing the house might be good for Republicans in the 2020 elections.


    House Democrats would be focused on impeachment of Trump and probably Kavanaugh. There would be one investigation after another on every Trump administration official. They would go after every member of the adminstration for anything they can dream up. The Democrats are so angry and bitter that they won't be able to control themselves. They will shoot themselves in the foot then blame everyone else
