Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Everyone wears tweed ironically. Except for Jeff, of course.
Look, I’ve got a pretty good imagination, but even I can’t even begin to grasp what the heck it is the Democrats are thinking these days. There was a time when I could at least pretend to understand what they were motivated by.
But 1985 was a long time ago.
The Democrats have long been preying upon the youngest among us via abortion. There was a time, however, that the kids seemed to get a bit of a grace period from them if they managed to survive the Planned Parenthood gauntlet. I don’t know what the kids did to them but that grace period is no more.
Here at the Briefing, we’ve been focusing mostly on the creepy leftist battle against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, a battle which the Democrats have wholeheartedly backed. That’s mystifying enough. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago:
It is both perplexing and disturbing that the Democrats are so bitterly opposed to a bill that merely wants to keep the sex talk away from first-graders. You know, like the television rating system does. This insistence upon setting aside the ABCs to talk to 6-year-old Timmy about becoming Tammy is beyond the pale.
Now the conversation shifts to child pornography, the subject at the center of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation. Democrats and their flying monkeys in the mainstream media have been blaming Republicans for being “obsessed” with Jackson’s lenient approach to kiddie porn freaks. They turned it into a “Republicans pounce!” thing. They’re OK with child pornographers getting light sentences. The real tragedy is Republicans pointing it out.
Sure, this could be dismissed as a one-off in the effort to get Judge Jackson confirmed, but it appears it’s a trend with the Democrats now.
Last week, Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) introduced the Protect Act of 2022. You can read the text of the bill here, but the Reader’s Digest version is that it would create minimum mandatory sentencing for offenses for child pornography and keep judges from imposing lighter sentences.
The bill faced stiff opposition from Democrats in the Senate, including Dick Durbin, who denied Hawley unanimous consent. Durbin asked: “Why now? I know why. He said as much. This senator has suggested over the course of the last two weeks and hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee that somehow this judge… aspiring to the Supreme Court is out of the mainstream when it comes to sentencing in child pornography cases.”
Well, Dick, why not now? Please explain to me why this is a bad bill. I know your side has dumped millions into getting your nominee confirmed. I know you dream of using the Supreme Court as a juggernaut to ensure that every one of your fevered dreams is enshrined as law no matter the vox populi. After all, you were in favor of a similar bill back in 2003. Remember that?
To his credit, Hawley did not back down, stating: “The Senator from Illinois says Congress hasn’t acted in 2 decades. That’s true. I haven’t been here for 2 decades. He has, the Senator doesn’t want tougher sentences, he doesn’t want to talk about this issue, he wants to sweep it under the rug. I’m here to say I won’t let that happen.”
I don’t know Dick, maybe because child pornography is heinous, criminal, and decent people think that child pornographers should be punished.
It’s obvious that the Democrats aren’t interested in being associated with the decent folk.
There you have it, America: if you’re looking for a political party that protects the rights of disturbed adults who insist upon talking about sex to 5-year-old kids and advocates for leniency for child pornographers, the Democrats are that party.
And they’re rather proud of that.
