New video has surfaced that removed all doubts as to what was really behind the smearing of Brett Kavanaugh. Imagine what that guy went through. Everyone saw his Fox interviews where he had to admit personally embarrassing things.
Or his testimony where if he didn’t deliver the performance of a lifetime, his reputation and career would have been ruined.
The truth behind all of that is horrible – they knew they couldn’t stop a conservative appointment because they didn’t have the votes so they smeared a man in hopes that the damage they would do to his reputation would be so bad as to call into question his future rulings on abortion.
The Washington Examiner reported that back in April, she spoke at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference titled “Applied Feminism and #MeToo.” The video of her address recently surfeced, and made a lot of people angry.
In the video Katz said that their goal was to put an “asterisk” on a prediction that Kavanaugh would rule to limit Roe v. Wade, though he had little history of attacking the 1973 decision to protect abortion.
“In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court. We were going to have a conservative [justice] … elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine,” said Katz.
Lovelace explained, “Ford’s audience was not the Senate, as Katz had previously suggested, but the American people. If they could be persuaded that Justice Kavanaugh was a predator, then they might not accept a future ruling by the five Republican-appointed justices altering the right to obtain an abortion established by Roe v. Wade. Had the Senate understood Ford’s real motivation, as described by Katz, it might have appreciated more fully the pressure that ‘organized forces’ were applying.”
Lovelace also stated that Katz was very angry at the white men in charge of the process in confirming Kavanaugh and that President Trump’s team was driven to discredit Ford with “relentless cruelty.”
She claimed that he wrote, “When I think about her role in history, I don’t think about the white men on the Judiciary Committee, I think of the diverse young people outside the Capitol, standing up for her with their bodies and their words. That is the lasting impact of her bravery.”
