College Students Begging for Kavanaugh to Get Tossed for Their “Mental Health”
This is a prime example of how you’re never ‘innocent’ in the eyes of the public after your name has been through the mud following sexual allegations.
Even though Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh, was totally cleared of any wrongdoing and truths about his accuser motive were revealed some students at George Mason University are treating him like he’s guilty. Where is the justice in that?
According to The Daily Wire, some students at George Mason University have decided that even though a class taught by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will be held in England, they want him fired from the faculty. As Zachary Petrizzo reports for The College Fix, video footage taken from the public comment period of GMU’s board meeting last week shows various students claiming their mental health would be challenged by the very idea of Kavanaugh having a position as a visiting law professor.
One female student commented, “The hiring of Kavanaugh threatens the mental well-being of all survivors on this campus.” Another female student echoed, “It is affecting my mental health knowing that an abuser will be part of our faculty.” A third chimed in, “As someone who has survived sexual assault three times, I do not feel comfortable with someone who has sexual assault allegations walking on campus.”
The class will be held this summer in Runnymede, England, which is where the Magna Carta was signed.
T President of the American Association of University Professors chapter at George Mason University and several peers on the Faculty Senate openly support an investigation by the university into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
The College Fix shows GMU President Angel Cabrera take a somewhat incredulous tone as he attended the faculty senate meeting and defended the hire.
“He has been confirmed by — this is not a crazy appointment. This is a Supreme Court justice who is going to be teaching about the United States Constitution,” Cabrera said.
“So from that standpoint,” he continued, “I believe I am not going to question the judgment of that. It’s not a crazy appointment … Having a Supreme Court justice is going to create value for the students. The students, by the way, have agreed. The students have signed up to this class.”
Cabrera added he is not making a judgment about the accusations lodged against Kavanaugh or whether he is guilty or innocent. That created an opening for Professor Bethany Letiecq, president of George Mason University’s AAUP chapter, to suggest that’s what warrants an investigation.
“Well, should we investigate that? I mean, should we investigate that,” Letiecq said to Cabrera as snaps of approval rose out in the room. (Snapping has largely replaced clapping on college campuses as a way to show support.)
“He’s been accused, and there has not been a full investigation as far as I’m … that I can see,” she said.
Cabrera responds: “So, I mean, George Mason University … investigate a Supreme Court justice who has been confirmed by the United States Senate?”
“Yes,” a woman calls out.
“We do our due diligence on all hires. This is a hire,” a man added, drawing more snaps as someone else calls out “agreed!”
