During Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, leftwing news websites adorned their pages with headlines about “toxic masculinity” and “toxic bro culture,” which they ascribed to Kavanaugh to explain completely unprovable allegations of sexual misconduct.
Wednesday, Democrat darling and huckster attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested for alleged domestic violence. Curious, I reached out to a few of those same news outlets to see if they thought “toxic masculinity” was to blame, or if that was a trait only held by Republicans.
Here’s what they said.
During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, The Guardian published a piece from Jonathan Freedland called “Kavanaugh has revealed the insidious force in global politics; toxic masculinity.”
The Guardian did not respond to a comment request when asked if they had plans to run a similar piece in light of Avenatti’s arrest.
During the same time period, Daily Beast published a piece titled “The Right Thinks Kavanaugh’s Toxic Masculinity is Just ‘Being a Man'” by Jay Michaelson.
They, too, did not respond when asked if they had considered addressing Avenatti’s “toxic masculinity.”
Vox, on the other hand, at least responded to our question.
BLP spoke with Adam Howard, a professor at Colby College who penned a piece for the leftwing publication titled “I’ve spent decades studying elite schools. Here’s how their culture enables toxic masculinity.”
Avenatti attended the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school, and then George Washington University Law School. Both are elite institutions.
Howard referred me to his editor – whom he did not name – to address whether Vox will run any additional pieces on Avenatti, but launched into an excuse-making tirade on behalf of the disgraced barrister.
“It’s a little different though for a number of reasons,” Howard said. “Avenatti’s alleged domestic abuse didn’t occur while he was a student at one of these elite institutions. He also, of course, isn’t going through senate hearings to be confirmed for a lifetime appointment to the highest court. Just a couple obvious differences.”
According to the professor’s argument, “toxic masculinity” begins and ends with elite schooling. One apparently cannot be toxically masculine after graduation.
But here is one other “obvious difference” that I can think of, which is much more likely the reason the left will not jump down Avenatti’s throat.
Avenatti is a Democrat, and Justice Kavanaugh is a Republican. Thus, Avenatti will receive the benefit of the doubt (and due process, by the way, which was not afforded to Kavanaugh), where Kavanaugh did not.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
