Friday Open Thread | Thank You, Dr. Blasey Ford

It could not have been easy. But, you did it. You were poised, believable and brave. You said that you felt that you had to do your civic duty, and with this country’s eyes on you, you did it. I respect your courage. You had your say. You said your peace, and I know that I am not the only woman grateful to you for going on the record.

 

Just some thoughts from the Twitter Universe:

    sorry folks, but I’m getting the sneaking suspicion that Flake staged this “Save-the-vote-until later.

    I talked to Maria Gallagher, who demanded Flake look her in the eye as she told him of her sexual assault. She had never told ANYONE before. Her mom discovered it on cable news. https://t.co/cynOSKsT4H

    These two fierce women, @AnaMariaArchil2 and Maria Gallagher, just shared their stories of survival with @JeffFlake and demanded he vote no on Kavanaugh.

    He refused to look at them or answer.

    If you’re going to be a partisan piece of sh!t, Jeff Flake, at least be honest about it.

    APPLAUSE! Nothing worse than a scumbag who pretends to have a “conscience”. Told y’all about Flake, he’s looking out for his next career.

    This buzzard (kavanaugh) was having another momentous temper tantrum. He should have been taken to the woodshed long ago. If his pappy didn’t put him in check as a child, someone somewhere somehow is doing it.

    This was as predictable as the sun rising in the east. Flake loves to give those speeches about himself but he will always vote with the scumbags in the Senate.

      This from a white man who never has to worry about JUSTICE. There will NEVER be justice for those in a system that deems them ‘less than’. NEVER. We have 400+ years of this “arc” which always seems to find its way toward upholding white supremacy, (mediocre) white males, the moneyed, AT THE EXPENSE of everyone and everything else. This system of domination must collapse, IT MUST DIE. And until it does and is rebuilt into something that serves both people and planet, that centers “the least of these”, ‘justice’ will never be real.
