The Liberal Narrative That Dr. Ford Had ‘Nothing To Gain’ From Coming Forward Just Took A Hit
The whole thing stunk from the beginning, didn't it? Then to claim there was nothing to gain... well... what about those hundreds of thousands of dollars gained from platforms like GoFundMe?
We can toss in there the numerous fault-lines in her sensationalistic indictments from the get-go… the inability to recall sizable chunks of rather significant details, inaccurate claims of eye-witness confirmation, etc.
From The Daily Wire:
Her supporters said “she has nothing to gain,” but less than one week after Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has already been nominated by her alma mater for a distinguished alumna award. Predictably, the reason is her “speaking truth to power.”
This “speaking truth to power” line has been spoken in reference to Anita Hill, the woman who accused SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment back in 1991; Hill has now had an HBO movie and a documentary glorify her testimony.
In her letter nominating Dr. Ford, Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, said the former alumna’s testimony “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.”
How can you possibly argue she doesn’t gain anything? She had the opportunity to change the course of history and stop Trump from adding a conservative judge to the bench. That’s not nothing.
Second of all, she instantly became a liberal hero.
In a recent piece, Dr. Don Boys roughly tracts with my quickly hardening conclusions:
“During the hearings, I believed Ford was honest but mistaken about her attacker. I felt sorry and pity for her; however, it is now my opinion that she is a liar and tool of evil, unprincipled Democrats. She lied about her fear of flying; she lied about being claustrophobic; she lied about the polygraph test; she lied about her ex-boyfriend’s credit card and charged $600 on it; and she lied about when her second front door was installed. My daddy the philosopher with a sixth-grade education said, ‘Anyone who will lie will do anything.’ Daddy was right.”
