Letter: Trump, McConnell say those who challenged Kavanaugh are a threat

Kavanaugh challengers a
threat, says McConnell

Kavanaugh is confirmed. Whether we like it or not, believe him or not, the terrible brawl has been won by the Republicans.

Now, instead of simply congratulating themselves on their victory and their political game well-played, McConnell and Trump are wielding their tremendous power in the most treacherous way. They continue to publicly proclaim that those who dared to challenge and protest Kavanaugh’s appointment in light of accusations constitute a dangerous, evil threat to American values. Evidently it’s an effective way to energize the Republican base just ahead of the November elections.

Turning us ever more against each other with shameless propaganda in the ruthless pursuit of power seems to be the name of the game. But this kind of game can be won only in the short term. In the long term, we will all suffer a tragic loss: We, as Americans, will utterly and completely lose our way.
