Taking her place among the gaggle of leftists who have felt compelled to broadcast their opinions regarding the sexual-abuse allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Georgetown University Associate Professor Carol Christine Fair has weighed in on the matter numerous times in recent days. By any measure, Fair ranks as one of the more overtly angry and unrestrained of Kavanaugh's critics.
Professor Fair's reflexive rage may stem, in part, from the tragic fact that in her youth, as she has previously disclosed, she was repeatedly molested by an uncle for about a decade. When Christine Blasey Ford went public with her unsubstantiated, uncorroborated allegation about an event from 36 years ago, Fair promptly used her Twitter and Tumblr accounts to characterize Judge Kavanaugh as a “rapist” and “perjurer,” and to depict Republicans generally as “a fu**ing death cult” of “filthy swine” who are “pro-rape, pro-pederasty, pro-perjury, pro-corruption, pro-Russian hacking, pro-child trafficking, pro-white male supremacy, pro-VERY-late-term abortion of children with AR-15’s.” She also characterized Trump voters as “Trumpanzees,” and she described their pro-Trump “MAGA” hats as “socially-acceptable Klan hoods.”
After watching Republican senators defend Kavanaugh in the televised hearing last week, Fair tweeted: “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
Fair later told the website Heavy.com: “This [Trump] regime is hell-bent upon disenfranchising women, POC [people of color], non-Christians, LGBTQI and empowering a larger role for corruption in our governance…. This is only the beginning of fascism in America.”
Not surprisingly, Fair has a long history of raging intolerance for those who may disagree with her on political matters. In the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, for instance, she spent a full month posting Twitter attacks against a Muslim ex-colleague, Asra Nomani, who had voted for Donald Trump. In her tweets, Fair called Nomani a “wench,” a “fraud,” a “fame-mongering clown show,” and the equivalent of a “fu**er” in her native Urdu. In a tweet dated November 22, Fair told Nomani: “I’ve written you off as a human being. Your vote helped normalize Nazis in DC.” Two weeks later, Fair wrote a profanity-laced “open letter” to “Nomani and her Trump-supporting ilk,” which culminated with the capitalized sentence, “FU** YOU, GO TO HELL.”
In October 2017, Fair launched a personal blog titled “Tenacious Hellpussy: A Nasty Woman Posting from the Frontlines of Fu**ery.” The blog’s motto is, “Cun*y women get sh** done.” Fair also adopted a new mug shot for her Twitter account: an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin riding a naked, half-pig creature with Donald Trump's face.
Lamenting that it is impossible to “effect change by using the normative language expected of someone with a PhD,” Fair routinely uses obscenities and other incendiary language as expressions of defiance against America’s “systematic rape culture” and its effort to “discipline our rage.” In a September 2018 blog post justifying her profanity as “sacred,” she wrote: “I will not discipline my voice, my words, or my body. I will refuse to conform to your rules which are designed to constrain me like a corset for your convenience and comfort. I will not respond to this war on women decorously…. I will fight this war asymmetrically. I will use the vernacular it demands.”
Professor Fair is a highly instructive personification of the modern Left: raging, hateful, intolerant, closed-minded, self-righteous, and driven entirely by emotion that is impervious to reason. Moreover, she embraces the corrosive tenets of identity politics, reflexively – and proudly – viewing white men as a whole with the deepest measure of contempt. If you want to know what a leftist looks like, just look at Carol Christine Fair.
One final, yet very important, note: Leftists must be clearly distinguished from liberals. Liberals endorse big government, but they do not instinctively tar their adversaries as “Nazis,” “fascists,” and subhumans, like Professor Fair does. Nor do liberals obsessively seek, like Professor Fair, to divide people along the lines of race, gender, and class. Liberals, like conservatives, enthusiastically embrace Martin Luther King's exhortation to judge people by their character rather than their pigmentation. Professor Fair, by contrast, raises a metaphorical middle finger to King's perspective.
It's about time that good-hearted liberals woke up to the fact that the Democratic Party has left them in the dust; that it no longer represents them; and that it has no intention of ever representing them again. It's also about time that liberals woke up to the fact that they have far more in common with conservatives and Republicans, than with the unprincipled, power-hungry leftists who now dominate the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party has become a hard-left, tribalistic wasteland governed by a primitive and regressive philosophy that is rooted in identity politics and all of its attendant hatreds.
If one wishes to be “progressive” in the best sense of that word, he will find the Democratic Party to be a most inhospitable host. Consider former Senator Joe Lieberman, a genuine liberal who ran for vice president as a Democrat just 18 years ago. He now has virtually nothing in common with what his party has become. Carol Christine Fair, by contrast, has a great deal in common with it.
