A rape bombshell just rocked the White House. President Joe Biden and his team are stunned — they never expected this to happen. It is a disaster.
In a 1976 review for the Harvard Crimson, Judge Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney general, wrote a review for a play called “The Fantasticks” and praised a musical number about rape.
He wrote that the play featured “some hilarious group numbers like ‘It Depends on What You Pay,’ which provides a shopping list of rapes for sale (e.g. ‘the military rape–it’s done with drums and a great brass band.’).”
Garland’s article came up in a recent Senate Judiciary Committee meeting. He is currently undergoing review by the panel and is expected to be confirmed by the full Senate in the near future, regardless of the controversy.
What is ironic about this situation should be obvious: If Garland were a nominee put forth by Trump, he would’ve received the Kavanaugh treatment. But that isn’t going to happen because there is a double-standard.
Most of the time, liberals do not get “canceled” — all they have to do is ignore the problem is apologize and all is forgiven. Conservatives, on the other hand, are not usually so lucky and privileged. Just look at what happened to Star Wars actress Gina Carano.
