Americans live in two different dimensions, and this story serves as the perfect example.
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) gave an award for courage to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for having the bravery to share her “story”, and accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
“The ACLU of Southern California is proud to present the Roger Baldwin Courage award to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for her brave testimony before Congress last year, a shining act of courage. “
“When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous,” Ford said during her acceptance speech.
“I was simply doing my duty as a citizen, providing information to the Senate that I believed would be relevant to the Supreme Court nomination process,” she added. “I thought anyone in my position would, of course, do the same thing.”
Sorry, lady. Most people don’t wait for a federal court judge to serve YEARS and YEARS in the public eye, only to suddenly have some “brave” citizen come forward and share what she thought happened 30+ years ago.
“I had a responsibility to my country, to my fellow citizens, to my students, to my children, to live the values that I try to teach them,” Ford said.
Remember, she had no problem with Kavanaugh serving in the Bush administration… You know, in the freaking WHITE HOUSE… But when Trump nominated him for the Supreme Court, suddenly Blasey-Ford felt the need to act. Give me a break.
Of course, she wasn’t quite finished yet:
“That’s why it means so much to me to be recognized by you tonight. Because I know you will continue the work of protecting sexual assault survivors and preventing sexual assault. You will continue the work to protect personal privacy and the rights of citizens.”
This is how you know we live in two different realities: the left calls this woman “brave”, meanwhile the right says that she’s a liar.
We believe what we want, I suppose.
