ANALYSIS/OPINION:

We often hear how the right is fascist. Maybe that is backward. The left clearly considers Judge Brett Kavanaugh guilty based solely on the allegations against him. “Guilty until proven innocent” sounds more like the legal proceedings of Fascist Germany or Italy than a democratic republic.

Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee withheld the allegation of attempted rape until after all meetings and hearings were over, then treated Judge Kavanaugh like a condemned man (no evidence, no collaborative information at all) during the “extra hearing.”

The left riots when conservatives are invited to speak at universities, and destroys property and physically attacks conservative speakers when they can get to them. Now it is even threatening and harassing senators in their own hallways. Add to that the paid protesters at the regular hearing trying to disrupt the committee’s deliberations, and all of this reminds me of the Rohm’s SA (Hitler’s private army that brought him to power in 1933).

There is no presumption of innocence in the left’s world, no freedom of speech. Hitler and Mussolini would be proud.
