Welcome to the “Lunacy on the Left” column, where Liberty Nation highlights the published comments and arguments made from the left-wing point of view on the issues of the day. Each week, we will showcase the opinions of the leftist establishment media outlets, Democratic politicians, and other prominent figures on the left. In short, we wade through the morass of leftist lunacy so you don’t have to.
Last week was full of news about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Ford, the woman accusing him of sexually assaulting her in high school over 30 years ago. However, the left still managed to provide the public with some entertaining nuggets of lunacy. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) displayed an extreme level of delusion when she stated that she believes Ford’s claims. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) hopes to make some money from the Kavanaugh debacle. Last, but not least, leftist filmmaker Michael Moore made an announcement that should make the entire country rejoice.
Kirsten Gillibrand Makes a Mistake
In an appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room, Gillibrand told Jim Acosta that she believes Christine Ford’s allegations of sexual assault. But, before making that bold comment, she slammed Republicans because they had “already made up their minds” about Ford’s story “without the benefit of an F.B.I. investigation.”
Wait a minute.
Gillibrand is calling out the GOP for forming their opinions on the Kavanaugh matter before waiting for an investigation — but didn’t she just do the same thing mere seconds before? Apparently, you can only doubt an accuser’s story if the authorities have looked into the matter.
But, unlike others on the left who immediately decided that Ford was right about Kavanaugh, Gillibrand actually provided evidence to support her claim. The senator stated that the reason she believes Ford is “because she is telling the truth.”
Sounds pretty convincing, doesn’t it?
Elizabeth Warren Fundraises off Kavanaugh Accusations
Senator Elizabeth Warren — AKA Fauxcahontas — responded to the allegations against Kavanaugh much in the same way as her colleagues. But, never being one to let an opportunity go to waste, she also decided to take it a step further by using the issue to raise funds for her campaign.
In a recent fundraising email, Warren wrote: “This is outrageous. Brett Kavanaugh was already disqualified to serve on the Supreme Court. But now we’re learning new information about a sexual assault allegation.”
She continued: “If we all get in this fight right now, from Boston and across the country — then we’ve got a fighting chance at stopping the Republicans and Kavanaugh in their tracks.”
Let it never be said that Elizabeth Warren doesn’t know how to handle a sensitive situation such as this without class. It already goes without saying, right?
Michael Moore Threatens to Flee to Canada
Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore recently spoke with reporters at the Toronto Film Festival. He discussed his latest documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, which he hopes will spark the beginning of the end for the Trump administration. However, if his movie fails as badly as initial figures suggest, Moore has a backup plan that will become an immense blessing to the American public.
During his speech, the filmmaker threatened — or offered — to move to Canada if President Trump remains in power. “Trump absolutely hates democracy, and he believes in the autocrat, in the authoritarian,” Moore said. “I want us to survive this, but I can’t make any guarantees that that’s what’s going to happen. We’re in a bad place. We’re on the precipice of some very awful stuff.”
He went on to explain that Canada would be a much safer place than America because of Trump is destroying Democracy and being Hitler, and some other mindless folderol. The anti-Trump documentary is currently bombing at the box office, so it appears that Moore might be packing his bags soon. Darn.
After a highly irritating back and forth between Christine Ford and Senate Republicans over whether she will testify, it appears that she has agreed to meet with Congress — maybe. If everything goes according to plan, she will give her testimony on Thursday, so it is highly likely that we will have yet another week chock full of silly leftist antics. Be sure to tune in for the next installment of Leftist Lunacy!
