Several prominent Democrats lashed out against Republicans after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed in spite of weeks of Democrat obstructionism.
“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,” said Ariel Dumas, a writer for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins,” said Dave Hogue, a high level User Experience Designer at Google. “F***. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL. I hope the last images burned into your slimy evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames.”
“Winter is coming, you callous f***necks, you prolapsed assholes, you grotesque monsters, you racists and rapists and wretched abusers, you vengeful petty horrors,” said fantasy novelist Chuck Wendig.
All of the above Tweets have been deleted, but the internet is forever. Dumas even locked her Twitter account, apparently not wanting to face the heat for her wretched words.
Not all of the anti-Kavanaugh hatred came from high-profile Democrats.
“Like I said, you’re a terrible person. I hope you get raped and no one listens,” said a user called Bjorn Svenson to Big League Politics reporter Sonny Joy Nelson. Svenson subsequently deleted his entire Twitter account after bakclash.
Gizmodo writer Matt Novak has possibly the best meltdown, blaming Kavanaugh’s confirmation on “white nationalism” in a long Twitter thread.
“MAGA Twitter is ‘just trolling’ with their white power symbol as Very Savvy Political Insiders insist you’re just seeing things,” he said in one Tweet, spreading the mainstream press conspiracy theory that the centuries-old “OK” symbol is suddenly white nationalist code.
Finally, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) encouraged leftists to continue to harass Republicans and their surrogates in a Sunday interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, calling them “white supremacists.” Here is the relevant transcript:
BASH: The president, Republicans are saying Democratic protesters are, quote, ‘an angry mob.’ What I want to ask you about, it is one thing to protest the Supreme Court at the Capitol. That’s been done for generations and frankly since the founding of this country.
BASH: It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants and go to their homes. Is that going too far?
HIRONO: I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on. Because hat happened with Judge Kavanaugh from the very beginning, this is not a fair process. What the Republicans did was to telegraph after Dr. Ford’s account came forward, what they telegraph was, one, Dr. Ford, we don’t want to hear from you. Two, if we have to hear from you, we will rig the hearing —
BASH: Should they be going after people at restaurants?
HIRONO: This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country. There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country. This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.
