As Twitchy recently reported, Vox’s Dylan Matthews is having his own problems understanding why the Republicans would continue to back President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court in the face of an anonymous and unproved accusation from decades ago, dropped at the last minute by Sen. Dianne Feinstein of all people. Why not just dump Brett Kavanaugh and pick someone else?
Meanwhile, Vox itself just can’t help noticing parallels between Kavanaugh and Justice Clarence Thomas, who was confirmed even though he “too” faced sexual misconduct allegations.
Clarence Thomas was confirmed despite sexual misconduct allegations. What happens to Brett Kavanaugh will show if anything has changed. https://t.co/MuFcS6bDRm

Oh yes, there are striking parallels.
The most striking parallel is that leftists will stop at absolutely nothing to stop conservatives. There is no lie they will not tell, no low level they will not reach. Leftists are disgusting liars, and that never changes.

The only thing that’s changed is their level of duplicity. Craft an allegation that cannot be proven but do so in a way that makes it impossible for the accused to defend themselves.
It’s brilliant wickedness, I’ll give them that.

Nothing has changed. The democrats are still lying, lowlife scum with no regard for a man's reputation and dignity. They are also about to lose. Again. https://t.co/3oBtrZmrIs

Yes because a letter from an unnamed accuser that was sat on until now and dismissed by the FBI upon review is totally credible. https://t.co/rRWI0jVeVu

Nope: you're still making bullshit accusations against nominees you loathe for respecting the Constitution. https://t.co/bDBhIQVxo9

Oh for Pete’s sake. The allegations against Thomas were nowhere near proven, but they at least were on the record from an accuser who came forward and testified in public. No comparison with this anonymous allegation from an accuser whose name was not even provided to the FBI. https://t.co/czumSxQy3n

Uh, Anita Hill testified publicly under oath and was cross-examined. We don't even know who Kavanaugh's accuser even IS! Not to mention, Kavanaugh was allegedly 17 years old! You people can NOT be serious about this BS analogy. It's a joke, right?! https://t.co/JJROCIldYI

Clarence Thomas’s accuser was named Anita Hill.
What is the name of Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser? https://t.co/x1L8783Bcp

Anita Hill testified under oath and was cross-examined.
Not quite the same thing as a letter from a single anonymous source about a high school party over 30 years ago, but congrats on getting the headline you wanted. https://t.co/FmTEJGo2Mj

Anita Hill's allegations have been widely discredited, but at least she put her name out there. Kavanaugh's accuser is anonymous and the other person involved strongly denies that it happened, so the allegations against Kavanaugh are actually less credible than Hill's. https://t.co/el1H99WG54

Good news everyone. Just accuse everyone you don't like of sexual misconduct to derail their career. Don't worry if it's true or not. https://t.co/bTX9NXpmbB

Sexual misconduct allegations huh? Must be some very serious concrete allegations considering Feinstein has been sitting on this since July. https://t.co/7KIUX6d6vg

I have been approached by an individual who wants to stay private and informed by them that vox tried to sexually molest them 35 years ago. Vox must now be destroyed.

I agree I find these anonymous allegations against Vox totally credible. He must be forced from public view immediately
