#IStandWithBrett

An extraordinary gathering of 75 attractive, upper-middle-class white women of a certain age testified in a DC hotel today, Friday, September 21st.  Here’s the gist of it:  there is no better male character on earth than that of Brett Kavanaugh’s. The man they knew, and knew well, is incapable of the brutish behavior of which he stands accused.

But here’s the thing.  Who’s to say what happened?  By all accounts of the culture around those private schools in the DC ‘burbs in the early 80’s was fraught with sex, drugs, and lashings of alcohol.  The accuser’s private school yearbook illustrates a girls-gone-wild world, where black-out drunk was the goal every party night, and Professor Ford was an enthusiastic participant.

As anyone who experienced a high school of privilege knows, social pressure is more intense because it is directly related to future advancement. Fall out of favor, and you aren’t just a loner, you’re knocked out of the procession towards a life of success and wealth.  Despite Kavanaugh’s sterling reputation, I find it plausible that one night, in an attempt to fit in, he made an awkward, horseplay-like attempt to ‘get some’ from one of the heavily self-advertised village tarts. We will never know. It is impossible to know.  Everyone was drunk and it happened 36 years ago.  Without evidence or a pattern of behavior on the part of the accused, it’s a wash.

Two versions of women are herewith presented for younger women to observe and judge and decide who to emulate. Hysteria, victimhood, screaming as you are hauled out of committee rooms or a sound and balanced life with children, husband, job, good hairdressers, $75,000 cars, frequent vacations, and a life of praise connected to work that serves the culture?

I’m pretty sure who is going to win this one.

    I am a daughter whose father was a man.
    I am a sister whose three brothers are men.
    I am a wife whose husband is a man.
    I am a mother whose son is a man.
    I am a grandmother whose two grandsons are men.

    When did the world start hating “ALL” men – men and boys who are caring and respectful?
    When did men become guilty before proven innocent when it comes to an accusation from a woman?

    Something is wrong in our country if all men are considered evil. We are being led by a group of people who are ready to crucify a man because of an allegation. Daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, of men know better and it’s time we all spoke up, held our ground, and will not let our men be vilified.

    It is disgusting that Judge Kavanaugh is being treated like a criminal because of an unsubstantiated accusation from a woman about an alleged incident over thirty years ago. It’s one person’s word against another with absolutely no evidence. American people are not stupid – this ploy by you and the other Democrats is insulting the intelligence of the people of our country. The timing of this accusation is very telling. Women and men alike see what the Democrats are doing to an honorable man and it is disgusting. Shame on the Democrats or any other group of people who smear a person’s reputation for political motives. But there is always Karma.

    P.S. The young girl who Senator Cory Booker admitted to sexually assaulting should be interviewed as well given the opportunity to tell her story. Hopefully, she will accept the opportunity to tell her side of the story.

    P.S. Judge Kavanaugh had a number of women write letters on his behalf that was a testament to his character. Why did the accuser against him Dr. Blasey Ford supply letters from other women on her behalf instead of men? Wouldn’t it be more meaningful if Dr. Blasey Ford had men who she worked with to write letters as a testament to her character?
