Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford during his confirmation process. There was a bitter, partisan fight, and even though Kavanaugh was shown to be innocent, his name was unjustly dragged through the mud.
Now Ford has reemerged to claim that she was the real victim in the end, despite the fact that she was the one who attempted to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation.
Blasey Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh emerged after nearly thirty years of complete silence. During that time, Kavanaugh had been working hard within the federal judiciary, yet she apparently never felt the need to come forward.
It wasn’t until President Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court that she voiced her allegations of sexual assault. In fact, Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein had held the letter Ford wrote her detailing allegations for months prior the confirmation hearing so it could be used at just the right time.
The entire thing looked like a political hit job. The timing of the accusations and the complete lack of evidence showed that there was an ulterior motive behind Ford’s accusations.
After Blasey Ford leveled her accusations, Kavanaugh’s name was besmirched in the mainstream media for months. He was treated as a guilty man from the outset, in spite of the utter dearth of evidence. Kavanaugh and his family endured intense hatred and vitriol from the media throughout the entire process.
On Sunday, Blasey Ford, in a speech accepting the Courage Award from the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, said, “I was not prepared for the venom, the persistent attacks, the vilification, the loss of personal privacy and the collateral damage to my friends and my family.”
Ford stood in front of the ACLU, cradled in the arms of the liberal Beverly Hills elite, and bemoaned the very circumstances she brought upon Brett Kavanaugh and his family.
Taking #MeToo too far
The #MeToo era was spawned by years of horrible crimes committed by powerful men willing to take advantage of women. The issue here is that innocent men have also been caught up in the mob mentality of the movement.
Our justice system is based on the concept of “innocent until proven guilty,” but Brett Kavanaugh was afforded no such consideration as he was castigated in front of the entire country for something he didn’t do.
Ford had no evidence to corroborate her claims, and her story was full of inconsistencies. Yet she is seen as a heroine by the left and is being honored by the ACLU.
She may think she is the victim, but the truth is that she was the aggressor. Kavanaugh was nearly rejected for a position that is the dream of everyone on the bench in America, and had his reputation and family dragged through the mud. Ford set a disturbing precedent, and it’s time to have a conversation about how to prevent this from happening again.
