During the circus that was the Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, we were told we, the public, have to believe the victim each and every time, without exception, and without hesitation. To question the credibility of the accuser, we are told, is tantamount to re-traumatizing the "victim" all over again.
This is expected of all of us, even if there isn't a single scintilla of evidence to corroborate the alleged victim's allegations. The #metoo movement signed onto this wholeheartedly. The problem is that to do so strips the accused of every aspect of Due Process and Equal Protection, not to mention the loss of the presumption of evidence. And that is the problem with "Social Justice". It's not justice at all, but rather a crass and blatant attempt to bully someone into submission.
Everybody witnessing this phenomenon thought this was something new. Lamentably, it's 24 years old, dating back to 1994, when the Violence Against Women Act or VAWA. VAWA was the brainchild of then Senator Joe Biden (D-DE), the National Organization of Women and other feminist activist organizations, and as it pertains to immigration, the open border contingent of Social Justice Warriors and outright Socialists.
The mantra spewed forth by these groups is: "All women are victims, without exception. All men are abusers, without exception. No women lie. The ends justify the means."
Better a few thousand innocent men be wrongfully accused and imprisoned, lest a single solitary guilty abuser escape punishment. If this is what Obama meant when he said he would "fundamentally transform the United States", I would just as soon pass on this transformation, thank you very much.
Nowhere else is this viscous political agenda practiced more aggressively than in the immigration arena. The VAWA provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act or INA, allow for a foreign born spouse to easily fraudulently induce a US Citizen into marriage, so the alien can get a green card, and allows the alien the convenience of abandoning the marriage at will by merely fabricating allegations of domestic violence, rape, or other atrocities.
Thousands of American citizens, both men and women alike, are cruelly and callously lied to by aliens and fraudulently induced into marriage thinking the alien wants to build a life with them, only to find out later on that this was all a con and they were the mark.
And to ensure that the alien doesn't get jammed up for marriage fraud, the alien falsely accuses the American citizen of domestic violence or worse. It is a form of sociopathic conduct that no one seems to want to address. Not Congress, not ICE, not USCIS, and absolutely not the immigrant rights groups.
This has to stop and Congress and the Administration have to act to protect and serve Americans, again.
