Gillibrand’s Blatant ‘Doublethink’ on Kavanaugh Accusal Would Make Big Brother Blush

‘Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her…’

(Ben Sellers, Liberty Headlines) It is fitting that Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser Christine Blasey Ford was a member of Holton-Arms School’s Class of 1984.

Ford’s eleventh-hour accusations against the Supreme Court nominee have taken government officials on the Left to new levels in their effort to turn America into the dystopian vision of Oceania outlined in George Orwell’s novel 1984.

Replete with descriptions of a surveillance society controlled by the omnipresent Big Brother where people are able to commit thoughtcrimes, the book coins the term doublethink to refer to ideas that mean the opposite of what they express, such as its warmongering Ministry of Peace.

And though hypocrisy has not been in short supply during the Left’s brazen, monthslong effort to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation, New York Sen. Kristen Gillibrand may just have given us one of our greatest examples of doublethink to date–or at least since the Bill Clinton presidency.

Not to be outdone by her unhinged, misandronist colleague Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, who declared on Wednesday that all men should “just shut up and step up” by accepting responsibility for any alleged sexual assault, Gillibrand tweeted on Thursday that forcing Ford to testify before Congress about her allegations would be “silencing her.”

Gillibrand deserves some credit for her consistency in demanding accountability for sexual abusers, having also publicly criticized Al Franken and Bill Clinton for their #MeToo sins–and having promptly donated her campaign contributions from Harvey Weinstein to a women’s charity while others in her party hedged. However, she sometimes has been all to willing to let the political trade winds shift her moral compass. In February, for example, she characterized rape enabler and victim-basher Hillary Clinton as her “greatest role model in politics.”

While senators like Gillibrand and Hirono have, on one hand, complained about the reluctance of many to believe Ford’s sincerity in her vague recollection of a 36-year-old alleged high school assault, Democrats nonetheless have unabashedly used the accusations for their own political devices, engaging in political theater and even fundraising events that capitalize on the scandal while attempting to hinder a factual inquiry into it.
