Get accused of sexual assault these days, no matter how old, thin, or conveniently timed the allegations were, and there will be activists determined to see that you are never free to surface on planet Earth.
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct just after President Donald Trump nominated him last summer. The allegation didn’t surface until just before he was supposed to be confirmed, delaying confirmation to allow time for a contrived hearing of the original allegations and for more “accusers” to come forward. Naturally, more did, yet their stories were even more unbelieveable than the first. One woman couldn’t remember if Kavanaugh was the man who harassed her, yet media outlets printed her allegation. Two other women came forward as clients of disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti. He and one of the clients have been referred for criminal investigation over the allegations.
Kavanaugh was confirmed, yet those who insist we believe every woman who makes an accusation (especially against a Republican) still believe he is, in fact, a sexual abuser even though no evidence exists to prove that claim. The people the accusers said could corroborate their stories could not do so.
Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court Justice, was offered a summer teaching job at George Mason University. Activists quickly spun into action to get him fired, and a liberal “dark money” group stepped in to help.
Demand Justice, the “dark money” group, is led by former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon and has been buying Facebook ads targeted at George Mason students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and calling on them to sign a petition initiated by students which currently has nearly 5,000 signatures, according to Fox News.
The Huffington Post reported that the ads also request those affiliated with George Mason sign a separate petition calling for congressional Democrats to investigate Kavanaugh, even though he had already gone through several FBI background checks and an additional week-long investigation prior to his confirmation.
The Washington Examiner (my former employer) reported that the student group is calling itself Mason for Survivors and has been circulating the petition for the past month. It calls for George Mason to “Terminate AND void ALL contracts and affiliation with Brett Kavanaugh.” It also demands the university apologize for hiring him in the first place and provide more funding for sexual assault victims.
So far the university has not kowtowed to student demands. George Mason president Angel Cabrera released a statement saying, he “respect[s] the views of people who disagreed with Justice Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation due to questions raised about his sexual conduct in high school,” but added that “he was confirmed and is now a sitting justice.”
In a news release, former Clinton aide Fallon said Kavanaugh “has been credibly accused of sexual assault by multiple women whose allegations have not been thoroughly investigated.”
As stated earlier in this article, this is simply not true. One woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, seemed credible as she spoke before Congress, but her story was not backed up by her supposed witnesses, including one of her best friends. The other allegations lacked any corroboration whatsoever, even after multiple media outlets (The New Yorker, The New York Times, NBC) tried desperately to find evidence. They, of course, printed the stories anyway, breaking journalistic ethics.
