Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Representative Keith Ellison each have women accusing them of abuse. Kavanaugh’s accusations from over three decades ago can only be judged on their he-said-she-said merits. To stay consistent with their leftist narrative, some on mainstream media are attempting to say the same thing about Ellison’s accusations.
The differences between the two are striking. There is literally nothing other than the word of the alleged victims to support the Kavanaugh accusations. Meanwhile, Ellison’s primary accuser, Karen Monahan, has several documents, previous mentions on social media, and an unreleased video that some have seen which allegedly proves Ellison abused her.
At best, leftist mainstream media outlets want you to consider the two accusations as equivalent. Most, however, still choose to defend Ellison, attack his accuser, or pretend like the accusations don’t exist.
Few on the left are calling for an investigation of Ellison while nearly everyone on the left wants Kavanaugh investigated. Here’s the thing. There’s very little left to investigate on Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, his primary accuser, didn’t tell anyone about the alleged incident for three decades. There is no physical evidence possible because she doesn’t remember where the party took place or when it happened. For Ellison, on the other hand, there is plenty to investigate from the 2016-2017 series of alleged abuses.
Here’s a piece on Vox that tries very hard to equate the two and paint Ellison’s accusation as a he-said-she-said like Kavanaugh’s:
While Monahan released dozens of text messages in August that she and Ellison sent to each other, they don’t specifically corroborate violence or verbal abuse. Some texts are obviously cropped in the middle of an exchange. And though she has documentation of reporting past domestic abuse to a doctor, the doctor doesn’t document any physical evidence to corroborate her claim.
In other words, the situation between Ellison and Monahan is essentially still a “he said, she said” situation where she has accused him of abuse and he has categorically denied everything. Ellison so far is not feeling the pressure to leave his race, even though he recently told a local Minnesota news station he could not be sure more allegations wouldn’t come out.
If more Americans were aware of the way mainstream media attempts to manipulate our perspectives through shining bright spotlights on certain issues while burying others, it would be easier to force them to stop. Unfortunately, most are willing to take the headlines and snippets they read at face value without applying any critical thought to it all.
This is all one big joke on America. When credible accounts against Democrats are dismissed but even the slightest doubts on Republicans are to be believed, the challenge before the nation is one of discernment.
