We are just 181 days away from the 2020 presidential election, and many Democrats appear to have stuck their heads in the sand and have refused to seriously address the emergence of credible sexual assault allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden.
In the autumn of 2018, Congress took 89 days to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court – the vast majority of which was spent focused entirely on the sexual assault allegations brought by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Within hours of Ford’s claims becoming public, Democrats rallied to support her and launch an all-out assault against Kavanaugh.
With Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden, in contrast, Democrats and their allies in the media have spent week after week pretending she didn’t exist – even as the mounting corroborating information makes it increasingly difficult to ignore her.
The liberal “women’s rights” groups like Planned Parenthood Action, NARAL, and Emily’s List – who had spent millions on advertising, organized national walkouts, and promoted social media campaigns for Christine Blasey Ford – have been silent on Tara Reade.
All those pro-abortion activists and “women’s health” organizations who flocked to the banners of the #MeToo movement, now turn their backs on a possible victim of sexual assault with a credible story.
The same voices who rushed to champion Christine Blasey Ford and demanded that America #BelieveAllWomen – even when there wasn’t a shred of supportive evidence – now choose to go against one of their own, former Democratic staff who says she was the victim of an aggressive sexual assault. These groups villainized Brett Kavanaugh, but now they seem happy to give Joe Biden a “free pass” on “this one.”
For the Left, it comes down to the simple fact that Joe Biden agrees with them. And that is especially true for the pro-abortion groups. Joe Biden is good for the abortion business. He’s acquiesced to the abortion lobby’s every demand and says he’s committed to protecting “the constitutional right to an abortion.” That’s all this is – and that’s all it takes to buy the Left’s silence.
The Democrats say that they #BelieveSurvivors, but this time’s it’s nothing but business.
Last Friday I published an op-ed in the Washington Examiner about Tara Reade, Joe Biden, and the abortion industry. You can read that here.
