Title: Christine Blasey Ford's bogus 'bravery' award nomination

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated for the University of North Carolina’s highly esteemed alumna award for speaking publicly about the allegations of sexual assault she hurled then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s way.

And with that, the topsy-turvy world of truth the left already inhabits just did another somersault.

Let’s be clear: Ford alleged Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party during high school — but offered no proof, no clear memories of the incident, no supporting statements, no solid witness testimonies, no police reports, no corroborating evidence at all.

In a sane world, accusing someone of Kavanaugh’s reputation and public visibility — absent any evidence and at a time when the accusation was clearly intended to halt a career progression — would be called slander, or defamation of character, and could rebound on the accuser by way of a legal suit.

But in the minds of the left, Ford’s accusations are called courageous.

“What Dr. Blasey Ford did … was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” read the nomination letter from Jennifer Ho, a professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the university.

The letter went on, WNCT 9 reported: “It is about recognizing that the simple act of speaking one’s truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery. We live in a society that does not believe women. … By awarding Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as a distinguished alumna, UNC Chapel Hill sends a message to her, to our students, faculty and staff, and to the larger community of the US and the world that we believe her — that UNC Chapel hill believes survivors of sexual assault.”

Oh puh-leeze.

The sex of the accuser does not bestow automatic believability on the accuser.

Just because Ford’s a woman doesn’t mean she’s believable, or to be believed.

Truth is not a gender.

Moreover, accusing someone without evidence is not an act of bravery. It’s foolhardy, dangerous and — truthfully — despicable.

And — truthfully again — slapping an award on Ford’s back doesn’t change the fact her unsupported accusations nearly damaged a man’s reputation, destroyed his career, tore apart his family, and furthered the anti-President Donald Trump agenda of a hot charged, vicious left.

Maybe something did happen to Ford way back in her high school days that caused her great harm, mentally, physically, psychologically, etc. Maybe she has struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder, repressed memories and an inability to put to rest whatever it was that occurred that still haunts to this day.

But her issues didn’t pan as she presented.

Kavanaugh was not the guy.

And awarding her for destroying his due process while simultaneously damaging America’s cherished system of innocent until proven guilty is an abhorrent slap in the face to truth. What a bogus award — what a bogus nomination. But then again, how fitting. What a bogus accusation it all turned out to be.


Poster Comment:

Ford is afraid of flying and has flown all of the world for pleasure. She didn't know the Judiciary Committee offered to interview her in California, all the while she was hiding in Delaware. She supposedly has two master's degrees and a doctorate, yet doesn't know the meaning of the word "exculpate." Something is wrong here. If she deserves an award, it's an Oscar.

Her little whiny, little girl voice was enough to make one want to puke! (1 image)

"... absent any evidence and at a time when the accusation was clearly intended to halt a career progression".

Says it all right there. This wasn't some out-of-the-blue accusation by some average woman against some poor schlub. This was a political, last-minute hit job by an educated liberal activist against a conservative Supreme Court nominee.

I would think the standards would be higher.
