Social media reactions to the cartoon, like those to the USA Today piece, have been merciless. Neither Chris Britt nor the Illinois Times has issued an apology to Brett Kavanaugh or his daughter
Just how low is the rabid Left willing to go in order to destroy Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? How about having a Liberal newspaper in ultra-Liberal Chicago running a cartoon mocking Brett Kavanaugh’s daughter as she prayed for healing and forgiveness for Christine Blasey Ford, is that low enough for you?
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6 (KJV)
The cartoon not only mocks a 10-year old girl, it also mocks her Christian faith in God, it mocks prayer, and the cartoon itself has the girl in the role of accuser to her own dad! So to answer my earlier question on how far the Liberal Left is willing to go to destroy Brett Kavanaugh, you have your answer. They will do anything, say anything, and twist anything to accomplish their stated aim of stopping Kavanaugh, even if it means also destroying his wife and children. And they’ll do it with a smile on their face.
FROM THE DAILY WIRE: Following the new low established by USA Today castigating Brett Kavanaugh as a potential pedophile who should stay away from children, the Illinois Times published a wickedly evil cartoon that mocks the judge’s 10-year-old daughter, depicted praying for Kavanaugh’s accuser, according to The American Conservative.
Though the powerful testimony by Kavanaugh last Thursday offered more than a few tearful moments, none came anywhere close to Kavanaugh recalling his daughter’s grace towards Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing her father of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago.

“I’m not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time,” Kavanaugh said. “But I have never done this to her or to anyone. That’s not who I am, it is not who I was. I am innocent of this charge. I intend no ill will to Dr. Ford and her family.”
“The other night, Ashley and my daughter, Liz, said their prayers,” Kavanaugh choked up as he continued. “Little Liza, all of 10 years old, said to Ashley, we should pray for the woman. That’s a lot of wisdom from a 10-year-old. We mean no ill will.”

Does this cartoon make you mad? Here’s how to contact the Illinois Times and the cartoonist Chris Britt
UPDATE 10/02.2018 3:25 PM EST: I have been emailed from both the publisher Michelle Ownbey, and editor Fletcher Farrar, who both tell me that the Illinois Times did not publish the cartoon in their paper. They tell me that the cartoonist Chris Britt posted it to his Facebook page and tagged the Times, making it appear there was a connection. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
Now that we have printed the official denial from the Times regarding the cartoon about Brett Kavanaugh’s daughter, we thought you would like to see the type of cartoons that they have published on their site. What are you thoughts on this? Comment below.
