Over the weekend, details of serious charges of sexual assault alleged to have been committed by Judge Brett Kavanaugh became public, as did the name of the woman raising these allegations.
Ms Lapidus thank you for this honest and respectful assessment of sexual assault allegations against a supreme court nominee. We need your point of view to be widely broadcasted and discussed. Why would any woman allow herself to come under the inspection given to a victim of personal physical violence which equals that of the inquisition unless she wants to take a stand for justice ?
The empowered, entitled, old white Republican “conservative” men are planning a lynching. This time it is of Dr Ford.- that is the MO of the rapist/abuser and the role of the victim in our wealth/privilege dominated society. The odious republicans - notably the utterly evil Grassley and Hatch - are doing everything possible to speed this Trojan Horse thru to confirmation of a life-long position, and to evade every possible open scrutiny and honest thorough vetting - they know his “qualities” as does the cretinous trump that nominated him.
It is entirely appropriate to investigate the charge and incident, whether the FBI or another agency; a lifetime of rulings by the extremist nominee hangs in the balance! The only rush is the American people will find out who and what he is, and the R’Cons cannot allow that! “Lynch the accuser and to hell with the people!”
The refusal to provide over 100,000 pages of history and evidence, and speed/rush this atrocity thru, are a common MO of the so-called “conservatives” - they refused to even meet with Merrick Garland for nearly a year! Now they rush this thru and plan the pre-meditated set-up and lynching of Dr Ford, to be abused yet again for her courageous actions coming forward. - those R’Cons and the nominee aren’t worth her spit!
Dr Ford lived with this assault her entire adolescence and adult life, watching as the perpetrator rose ever higher in the circles of our “legal system” and political charade -
as was written in a recent Slate article:
"Women who are victims start the clock at the moment of their trauma. Men who are perpetrators start it at the moment they are caught."
