Carlson: If Kavanaugh is a ‘sex criminal’, didn’t Ford ‘have an obligation’ to tell someone?

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

When liberal California professor Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct alleged to have occurred at a high school party in 1982, Democrats and the liberal media immediately and uncritically accepted her story at face value.

But if Kavanaugh was indeed some sort of “sex criminal,” as Ford has alleged, that would mean he’s essentially been on the prowl as a potential predator for the past 36 years, with countless women over the years placed at risk because Ford didn’t say anything about Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior sooner. That was the crux of a rhetorical argument posed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson during a segment on Tuesday with liberal radio host Ethan Bearman.

Carlson wondered if Ford, as well as other sexual assault victims, had an obligation to society to report their alleged victimizers.

Watch below:

Obligation to report

“Does she have a responsibility?” Carlson asked. “She’s claiming this man sexually assaulted her and altered the course of her life … she didn’t tell anybody his name for 36 years, during which time he got married, interacted with many others in our population.”

“Sex offenders tend to commit serial sex crimes. Doesn’t she have an obligation to tell someone, to stop him from doing that if he is, in fact, a sex criminal?” he asked.

Bearman disagreed and attempted to explain the many reasons victims don’t come forward, but Carlson interrupted and clarified that he was asking about her obligation in regard to the rest of society, and said, “If he’s actually a sex criminal, we have a right to know that and she has an obligation to tell us.”

“I know it’s hard, but why don’t we have a right to know? If there is a rapist on the loose and you don’t tell anybody, if (convicted Ponzi scheme fraudster) Bernie Madoff rips you off and you don’t tell his other investors, you’re part of the problem, are you not?” asked Carlson.

Bearman again disagreed with Carlson’s premise and launched into an unrelated discussion of Kavanaugh’s “elite” and “privileged” upbringing and lifestyle.

But Carlson interrupted once more to return to the question at hand: Did Ford have an obligation to report Kavanaugh sooner to protect other members of society from his alleged predatory behavior?

A responsibility to the rest of society

“You’re intentionally dodging my question, which is about the responsibility to protect the rest of us — if this is true, I’m taking her at face value — and I think it’s not just about her and her feelings,” Carlson said.

“There’s a responsibility to others around you and the society at large, which we’re ignoring on purpose because we’re all terrified to say anything that’s true because we think we’re going to be punished for doing that, and you know that is true,” he added.
