This is a favorite tactic of the left. Any time they don’t like something, they claim people will die as a result of it. In this case, some left wing Yale Law School students wrote an open letter, trying to panic people about Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
Here’s part of the letter:
Open Letter from Yale Law Students, Alumni, and Educators Regarding Brett Kavanaugh
We write today as Yale Law students, alumni, and educators ashamed of our alma mater. Within an hour of Donald Trump’s announcement that he would nominate Brett Kavanaugh, YLS ‘90, to the Supreme Court, the law school published a press release boasting of its alumnus’s accomplishment. The school’s post included quotes from Yale Law School professors about Judge Kavanaugh’s intellect, influence and mentorship of their students.
Yet the press release’s focus on the nominee’s professionalism, pedigree, and service to Yale Law School obscures the true stakes of his nomination and raises a disturbing question:
Is there nothing more important to Yale Law School than its proximity to power and prestige?
Now is the time for moral courage — which for Yale Law School comes at so little cost. Perhaps you, as an institution and as individuals, will benefit less from Judge Kavanaugh’s ascendent power if you withhold your support. Perhaps Judge Kavanaugh will be less likely to hire your favorite students. But people will die if he is confirmed. We hope you agree your sacrifice would be worth it. Please use your authority and platform to expose the stakes of this moment and the threat that Judge Kavanaugh poses.
Check out this reaction from Brit Hume:
For sheer intellectual emptiness, it would be hard to top this propaganda. What drivel. https://t.co/nndm3byrZ4
