(Quin Hillyer, Liberty Headlines) All over America, liberals are acting as if confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court will bring on a virtual apocalypse, and they are using any argument they can find – no matter how outlandish, and no matter how trivial – to try to sully his name.

Probably the single most Chicken-Little-like, sky-is-falling remark came from Democratic Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, who said that “The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come.”

Yes, that’s right: millions of lives.

Pol Pot on the high court.

Hundreds of students, alumni and faculty of Yale Law School, which Kavanaugh attended and where he teaches, went nearly as far as McAuliffe.

In an open letter blasting school officials for a mere press release congratulating the school’s own alumnus and faculty member, the more than 350 Yalies wrote that “Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination presents an emergency — for democratic life, for our safety and freedom, for the future of our country.”

Moreover, they wrote: “Without a doubt, Judge Kavanaugh is a threat to the most vulnerable. He is a threat to many of us, despite the privilege bestowed by our education, simply because of who we are.”

Complaining that Kavanaugh might rule to limit abortions in the future, and that he had ruled that religious employers can avoid participation in health insurance that covers abortions, they wrote that “Kavanaugh’s opinions give us grave concern that he will consistently prioritize the beliefs of third-parties over the rights of the oppressed — not only when it comes to abortion and contraception, but also regarding other forms of medical care (including care for transgender patients), family privacy, and sexual liberty.”

Finally, after ten long paragraphs outlining a parade of horrible results they foresee Kavanaugh producing, they closed by echoing McAuliffe: “People will die if he is confirmed.”

Oh, the humanity….
