Christine Blasey Ford, drowning in GoFundMe cash, has quickly become an icon on the Left, despite the common mantra that she has "nothing to gain" by "coming forward." Just this week, the famed accuser was further immortalized by Hollywood stars and political activists in a #MeToo "love letter."
Ford derailed the already circus-like confirmation process of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when she launched wholly uncorroborated, ever-changing, vague, decades-old accusations of sexual assault against Mr. Kavanaugh.
The gushing "love letter" to Ford was released on Wednesday. #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, photographer Amanda de Cadenet, author Glennon Doyle, and actresses Tracee Ellis Ross and America Ferrera collaborated on the project.
"Dr. Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September was one of the most courageous acts we have ever witnessed," begins the letter, adding, "This letter is our love offering to her so that she has a constant reminder that there is enormous support for her and other survivors like her. We heard her. We saw her. And we believed her."
The letter goes on to applaud Ford for facing "the patriarchy" with "her voice, her body, and the truth."
"We witnessed you show up for duty not as a superhero, but as a fully human woman. You showed us that the new hero – the kind of heroism called for in this moment — is a woman facing the patriarchy with no weapons other than her voice, her body, and the truth," it says.
"We will be grateful forever to you, Dr. Ford," it goes on.
The letter asks others to add their names in support of Ford.
Earlier this week, The Washington Times reported that Ford is "being pushed for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Distinguished Alumna Award because she was 'speaking truth to power.'" She was featured on Time Magazine's cover last week and has racked up some $800,000 in GoFundMe donations.
