CHAPEL HILL – Brett Kavanaugh may be sworn in and hearing arguments as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States, but that doesn’t mean the Left is done with their smear campaign against the Trump appointment. Part of that efforts consists of childish antics by Leftist protesters at the Supreme Court itself; the other involves exalting his accuser.
The latter is the method being embraced by the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, the alma mater of the accuser.
“Christine Blasey Ford, the college professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault while they were in high school, has been nominated for a Distinguished Alumna award at her alma mater.
Ford was nominated for the award by a professor at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where she earned an undergraduate degree in experimental psychology in 1988.
In a letter obtained by The Hill, Jennifer Ho, a professor in the university’s Department of English and Comparative Literature, said Ford did “something that was extraordinary” earlier this year when “she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
Ford alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh while they were at a high school party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegations.
Ho dismissed the notion that her nomination of Ford is “about partisan politics” but said it was more about “recognizing that the simple act of speaking one’s truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery.”
“We live in a society that does not believe women,” Ho writes. “The many indignities that women experience in their day-to-day lives is proof of this, as is the continued attacks on Dr. Blasey Ford after her testimony. We know that people who are survivors of sexual assault do not experience justice for their trauma; we know that many of them choose not to report to the police and choose not to reveal their assault out of fear that they will not be believed.”
Ho went on to say in her nomination letter that the university would send a message to the larger community by awarding Ford as a distinguished alumna that “UNC Chapel Hill believes survivors of sexual assault.””
‘Not about partisan politics’ – yeah, right.
The attacks allegations against Kavanaugh were, either, (A) so lacking of corroborating evidence, or, (B) so over the top ridiculous, that even squishy, finger in the air Republicans like Sen. Susan Collins took to the chamber floor to express their disbelief and intentions of supporting Kavanaugh.
Belief. That is what the Left’s #metoo movement has been forced to rely on due to a chronic absence of evidence in many high profile accusations against those on the political Right. To automatically “believe” an accuser with no regard to evidence or corroboration is anathema to the American ideals of due process and the basic decency of a civilized society.
That’s not to say self-proclaimed victims should not be listened to earnestly. The senate certainly did that, and then they offered a SEVENTH FBI investigation into Ford’s (and others) allegations against Kavanaugh to put the issue to rest.
To be sure, this woman is not being nominated for this award because of her courage in speaking out about her sexual assault. She is being championed because of her willingness to publicly accuse a Republican of sexual assault, despite the gaping holes in her story and incongruity with hundreds of Kavanaugh’s associates and acquaintances over the years. If this accusation had been against a Democrat, make no mistake, UNC would not even think twice about nominating the accuser for an award.
