The Newest Weapon of the Left - "Credibly Accused"

When one hears the phase“credibly accused” you might automatically assume that the allegation being made have been examined and there is at least some credible amount of circumstantial evidence that the allegation is true.  Today, what “credibly accused” has come to mean that there is absolutely no corroborating evidence, no independent corroborating witness, no contemporaneous documentation and, most importantly, no way of verifying the allegations. It’s a phrase that reveals less of the accusations veracity than it does about the person using it and his/her animus toward the accused. It simply means the person reporting the allegation just *wants* it to be true. So it’s nothing more than an attempt to pronounce guilt without having to contend with bothersome issues like, ya know, the presumption of innocence or the need for evidence before destroying a hated target’s life and reputation.

The danger of “credibly accused” metastasizing out of the world of politics is very real. This week saw hundreds of law students from Yale and Harvard come out to endorse “credibly accused” as their preferred standard of justice. This is no accident; “credibly accused” is a close sibling to the star chamber adjudication system, much loved by University Administrators, feminist and radical minority student activists.

What should terrify every American is the fact that any number of these student activists, if current trends hold, will end up on the bench. Including the Supreme Court. Imagine; people who do not believe in the presumption of innocence, the right of the accused to confront his accuser, to present witnesses, to have access to counsel, charged with safeguarding Americans’ civil liberties. Scary, isn’t it? And after deciding that sexual assault defendants being stripped of these rights is in keeping with the Constitution, is there any guarantee that’s where it will stop? Which is why “credibly accused” needs to be shown for the evil it is now.

This becomes even more important when we read about things like this: On Saturday, Georgetown University distinguished associate professor C. Christine Fair, who's profile describes her as "Scholar of South Asian pol-mil affairs, inter-sectional feminist, pitbull apostle, scotch devotee, nontheist, and resister" went on a violent, graphic tweeter rant
“Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.” 
“Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” 
It’s not enough to simply rally and support Brett Kavanaugh, because this is about so much more than him. It’s about everybody’s father, uncle, brother, son, grandson, nephew, friend, etc. and the creation of a world in which their lives can be destroyed on a single person’s word. The Democrats and their toadies in the media need to be made to understand exactly what it is they have unleashed.
