Latino writer and Anti-Trump voter, voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012, and now says after watching how the media and Democrats handled Brett Kavanaugh, he will be voting Republican in 2018 and for Trump in 2020. Tomas Mendoza said that he was appalled by their behavior and that he came from a country that had that type of press and politicians and he doesn’t want to live under the same in this country.
When I came to the United States, I left a country that had recently undergone a military coup. My family experienced first-hand what happens when those in power abandon the rule of law. We saw the devastation that comes to a society when men of power believe their political objectives so justified that they are willing to pursue them by any means necessary. In the eyes of those men of power, we could see the deadening of souls that occurs when a man’s perceived benevolence blinds him to his own tyranny.
During the Kavanaugh hearings I saw that same look in the eyes of Senate Democrats. The hearings made clear that the Democrats on the committee were not interested in pursuing the truth or respecting Christine Blasey Ford’s desire for anonymity. Instead, they simply sought to delay the vote in the hopes of winning the next election.
If Kavanaugh’s reputation and Ford’s privacy had to be sacrificed on the altar of political expediency, the committee Democrats were not going to let basic decency prevent them from using the courts as an alternative path to the political ends they cannot reach through legislation.
I sincerely hope there are millions of Tomas Mendozas out there who can now see through the media and Democrats unethical behavior.
