Monday Open Thread | They Are Treating Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Worse Than They Treated Anita Hill

Yeah, I know it’s hard to think that’s possible, but it’s true.
Anita Hill got an FBI investigation.
Anita Hill got witnesses called in her case.

Dr. Blasey Ford is not getting any of this.
Unlike, the Hill/Thomas case, this isn’t a case of ‘he said/she said’.
Because, there was a third party involved – Mark Judge – who Dr. Ford wants subpoenaed , but the Republicans are refusing.

WHY don’t they want the FBI to investigate?
WHY don’t they want to subpoena Mark Judge?
WHY don’t they want to allow for other witnesses to be called?

Could it be that they know that lying to the FBI isn’t something that will be forgiven. After all, it’s pretty clear that Kavanaugh perjured himself when he has testified at previous confirmation hearings, and the GOP has poo-pooed that. But, they know that the FBI won’t excuse Kavanaugh or Judge lying to them. They don’t want to put Judge under oath, because lying to them would be perjury too, that could be taken up at a different time if the Democrats take back the Senate.

They don’t want for other witnesses to be called because they don’t want to give out the context of Dr. Blasey Ford’s accusations, and her reluctance to come forward.
There were a whole Twitter hashtag that developed after Dolt45 tweeted offensively that if it had been ‘ so bad’, then Dr. Ford would have reported it then..back when she was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD.

#Why I Didn’t Report
Go through that hashtag and prepare to cry at the pain that you will read about. The isolation. The terror. The fear that they would not be believed. Each story I read was heartbreaking and unique, yet common threads ran through them.

Why do I believe her?
Because, I do. Because, I have heard the story too many times. Because, I went to school in that kind of environment, and the story is not unfamiliar. Because, she’s told too many people of her reactions to things, and how she has to have certain things in her life as a result of this incident. The story about remodeling her house to make sure that there were two exits everywhere is too deep for words, and proves the lifelong impact that an incident like this can have on someone’s life.

Because, nobody would voluntarily put their children through this:

And….Kavanaugh has his nerve…so upset about getting ‘private questions’?
Really?
Seriously?

And, previous Right-wingers are warning Dr. Ford about what is upcoming (but, I think she knows that.)

Uplift Dr. Blasey Ford in your prayers. They don’t want the truth, and are mad that this woman is speaking her truth, and coming forward. They are livid. Let them stay mad. This woman is an example of what Kavanaugh thinks of women and there’s nothing in his judicial decisions that says he’s ‘evolved’ from his high school years. Don’t think that he’s a threat to women? As the undocumented teen who became pregnant via rape that he tried to force to give birth, and who had to sue to be able to get an abortion. This didn’t happen 5 years ago. This was THIS YEAR.


UPDATE:
I hadn’t planned on this being the Monday post. But, while I was writing this post, and doing laundry on Sunday, all hell broke loose.

Well well well…there are others….you don’t say….

This is the tweet that made me go WHUT?!?!?! And, what did I miss in my hours offline?

WHO is Ramirez?

Also got another answer as to why the GOP doesn’t want to put Mark Judge under oath:

Remember…the GOP knew about Dr. Blasey Ford, and brought out that bullshyt letter signed supposedly by 65 women. They brought that up quite quick.

So, when they find out about Ramirez? What is their instinct to do?

And THEN, I find out that it’s NOT JUST RAMIREZ.

Avenatti has to know that if he doesn’t bring the goods, he’s done. He better bring the real thing. This isn’t time for nonsense.

And, the entitled nominee?
Have you ever seen a better example of White Male Entitlement than Kavanaugh?

Never forget the seed was planted by Senator Hirono:

    Warning: My client re Kavanaugh has previously done work within the State Dept, U.S. Mint, & DOJ. She has been granted multiple security clearances in the past including Public Trust & Secret. The GOP and others better be very careful in trying to suggest that she is not credible

        “Adverse conduct” probably means she strongly objected to being arrested [resisted arrest] because she thought being a cop should have protected her from being arrested for having killed Mr. Jean in his own apartment. We all know how this works: a cop kills an innocent person and is never held accountable. I’m just waiting on Guyger’s union to weigh in on her firing because I know it will say she shouldn’t have been fired at this point in the legal process, and that it will stand by her. I think the reason she’s being charged with manslaughter instead of first degree murder is that the prosecutor is thinking it will be easier to win a manslaughter case against Guyger than a first degree murder case. I’ve noticed that in previous cases in which cops have been charged with first degree murder, they all walk free in 99.999% of the cases.

    A fourth woman has contacted Montgomery County Investigators.

    This would potentially bring the number to four women accusing Kavanaugh of wrongdoing and comes after Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale college student, stepped forward this weekend to accuse Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her in college, and after attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted out a message saying he represents a woman with “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.”

    The thing about Kavanaugh is that the Federalist Society has binders full of right-wing judges.
    Judges willing to wipe away the progress of the past 50 years.
    But, only Kavanaugh has put forth that the President is above the law….hence the only qualification that counts.
    Let them have this man around their necks like an albatross.
