VIDEO: Check Out What Happened When These Students Defended Kavanaugh on Their Campus

Published

A group of conservative students decided they were going to show their support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and for due process — which the left is doing their best to destroy along with their efforts to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the bench — found themselves surrounded by your typical enraged leftist wingnuts, who shouted them down and ripped their signs until they were escorted away by campus security.

You know, the left keeps talking about all of this “tolerance” business, yet they don’t seem capable of actually showing us with actions what that looks like. Instead, they go on rampages against anyone who dares to offer an opinion different from their own.

At around 11 a.m. Tuesday on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, members of the Young Conservatives of Texas set up a pro-Kavanaugh/pro-due process display, complete with signs reading “No Campus Kangaroo Courts in Congress,” “KavaNotGuilty,” and “#MeToo gone #TooFar.” The students said that they had hoped to have some conversations with their fellow students, but that became increasingly difficult about an hour after they arrived.

“We did want people to talk to us, but unfortunately it’s hard to do that when you have an angry mob ripping our signs and screaming in our faces,” the club’s vice chairman Anthony Dolcefino told The Campus Fix.

“At the peak we had 150 people out there recording, screaming, rioting,” Dolcefino said. “The UTPD got involved, making sure people were not coming behind us.”

As videos posted on social media show, the crowd of protesters, which swells to large numbers, angrily denounces the YCT students for supporting Kavanaugh, at times chanting “We believe survivors!” and “F*** YCT!” and calling for them to be kicked off campus. The Campus Fix reports:

One student told the conservatives if they did not want their signs ripped up they should not have written such offensive things. Another video shows a protester violently grab signs out of the conservative students’ hands and rip them up before coming around their table and getting in their faces. Dolcefino said at one point one of their members was shoved as she had her sign snatched away.

Young folks today are zealous to stick up for the rights of victims and that is not necessarily a bad thing. However, in their zeal, they are seeking a solution to injustice that ends up flushing the very same legal system that protects their rights and makes justice possible right down the toilet.

It’s not their compassion that’s the problem. It’s what they are willing to throw out that’s the problem. By trashing due process, they are potentially setting themselves up to one day possibly be a victim of a false allegation that could destroy their lives.

Compassion needs to be tempered with wisdom and logic. That’s where these protesters are going astray.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
