You know, when I saw that Jeff Flake announced that he would vote to move Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination out of committee, my first thought was, “He’s going to stab us in the back.”
You may say I’m cynical; and maybe I am.
But when it comes to Jeff Flake, it isn’t so much cynicism as it is familiarity with his startling lack of character.
I said a week ago that Flake is probably behind the Republicans’ willingness to delay this confirmation.
I don’t trust him.
And he has absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain stabbing Republicans in the back by becoming the savior of the Democrats.
He’s a lame duck who is more than likely going to find himself a very lucrative career come January. And the more he sides with Democrats, the more lucrative that career will be.
I knew that YES vote out of committee would come with strings.
And, yes, Pinocchio, there were strings — placed there thanks to an angry mob.
Democrats are like hyenas. They’re ugly scavengers who are incredibly skilled at zeroing in on the weakest prey.
And Jeff Flake is incredibly weak.
All it took was one awkward moment in an elevator to break him.
I’m guessing from now on Flake will only ride the elevator if they install a second front door.

But Flake’s inevitable betrayal comes with a terrible and far-reaching price.
Because when you appease a mob, you only embolden the mob.
And that right there is the unintended consequences of Jeff Flake’s cowardly appeasement.
The women who harassed him in that elevator are now being celebrated in the media.
They’re heroes don’t you know – heroes who have been “organizing” with the Women’s March for the past three weeks.

The feminist mob is now fired up to continue using harassment to get what they want.
Because, as they put it, “it works.”
That feckless idiot Kamala Harris decried the “tyranny of the majority.”
But that’s not at all what we’re seeing here.
We’re seeing the tyranny of the mob.
Yesterday in that elevator, Jeff Flake emboldened that tyranny.
The mob will not stop at shouting at someone in a confined space like an elevator.
Because the mob is never sated.
Ann Coulter wrote in her 2011 book Demonic:
Everything else changes, but mobs are always the same. A mob is an irrational, childlike, often violent organism that derives its energy from the group. Intoxicated by messianic goals, the promise of instant gratification, and adrenaline-pumping exhortations, mobs create mayhem, chaos and destruction, leaving a smoldering heap of wreckage for their leaders to climb to power.
Democrats activate mobs, depend on mobs, coddle mobs, publicize and celebrate mobs – they are the mob.
Is this not exactly what we’re seeing today?
Perhaps Flake hopes by placating this mob he will be spared.
But as Churchill once put it, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last.”
Flake fed this mob; he won’t be spared.
Because nobody will be spared.
Not one Republican official will be safe.
Remember when graham said yesterday that any backing down wud legitimize left’s soul-sucking tactics? Witness: https://t.co/wSAWQv0H5N

And the never-sated mob won’t be satisfied with just attacking, harassing and intimidating elected officials.
They always get around to attacking their fellow Americans.
And, as they have already shown, their confrontations won’t stop at words.
This is what Jeff Flake emboldened with his cowardly appeasement.
And like Vidkun Quisling before him, in the end, this appeasement of evil will be Jeff Flake’s only lasting legacy.
