Called Senators Collins, Flake and Murkowski tonight. Had to leave voicemail. Hope they listened.
So. Here’s what we’ve learned…what we should know 27 years after Anita Hill, but probably still won’t have done anything about 27 years from now:
1. It would be worse for BK to not be confirmed than that a victim of sexual assault be believed.
2. There is no end to how gullible some women are, and how easily manipulated they can be. As an example, here are a few things that were said to me BY WOMEN when I attempted to have a measured, peaceful conversation with those who support BK:
“Ford is a stupid Valley Girl” (NB.. she has a Ph.D. In neuroscience, and I don’t think you even know what a hippocampus is)
“Those Dems are lying sacks of shit”
“36 years she’s lying. If something happened she would have said something. She’s a liar.”
“Wendy, you’re mentally ill.”
“Wendy, you’re passive aggressive.”
“Wendy, you don’t know anything about the law or BK.”
“I read Kavanaugh’s opinions except I didn’t actually read his opinions I just said that to sound like I form my own opinions based upon empirical data but I’m lying and how dare you actually read his opinions and tell me what they say!! “
3. Mark Judge wrote a book that discussed the drunken debauchery of “Bart O’Kavanaugh.” BK wrote a letter about BEACH WEEK LETS GET DRUNK AND PUKE ON EVERYTHING signed “Bart Kavanaugh” AND NO ONE THOUGHT TO ASK WHETHER HE LIED ABOUT HIS DRINKING. Because lying isn’t important.
4. Let’s write a letter to the WSJ trying to explain our insane, obnoxious behavior before SJC.
Wait…what? You want a do over???
That’s what you chose to say, you lunatic! On national television. You’re a federal judge, and that’s what you thought was the best face to put on your nomination???
(4(a): From the Republican members of the SJC: If you’re a white man who drank so much in college you just can’t remember how many women you assaulted…hey, we get it! We did that shit, too! God, how awful for you to have people challenging you on that!!! It’s OK, buddy!! Thoughts and prayers, BK. God, how you have suffered.)
5. Male. White. Straight. Christian. Western European. The rest of you, roll over, shut the fuck up, and wait to be penetrated. How dare you demand to be treated with dignity and respect.
6. “What goes around comes around.” Uh huh. Yes, it does. #2045iscomingwhiteboy
7. Justice = conducting a full investigation of anyone who could shed some light on whether or not BK is a serial drinking assaulter. Since he probs doesn’t remember.
8. Fuck those 1,000 law professors, the ABA, and Justice Stevens. What do they know? #trainingthenextgenerationoflawyers
9. Red State America say…FUCK THE VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT. Red State men say, women are vaginas. Red State women say, that’s okay and #idontneedfeminism
(But please watch me blinking in Morse Code to save me. Please. Also, he’s got 13 year old girls locked in a shed).
10. Wake the fuck up, America. Wake the FUCK UP.
