Kavanaugh’s accuser was just nominated for this award
The media has barely said a peep about Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers since his confirmation vote.
It’s more proof they were simply baseless political attacks.
But now Christine Blasey Ford was nominated for an award that could change all that.
University of North Carolina professor Jennifer Ho has nominated Christine Blasey Ford for a “Distinguished Alumna Award.”
Ho claims that Ford deserves the award for her “act of bravery” in publicly accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct from three decades ago.
Campus Reform reports:
A professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill nominated Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for one of the school’s “Distinguished Alumni Awards,” citing how Ford “told the truth” about an encounter she allegedly had with Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
UNC Chapel Hill English and comparative literature professor Jennifer Ho wrote a letter recommending UNC alum Dr. Ford to receive the award because of her bravery in coming out about her sexual assault “at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” according to the Carolina Alumni Review. Ho also circulated a petition encouraging others to sign on to the letter.
“What Dr. Blasey Ford did on September 27, 2018 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,” the letter states. “She made a statement and then answered questions for over three hours in front of a Senate Judiciary Committee with the cameras of the world trained on her.”
Ho, who teaches several English courses at UNC, then says that some people reading the letter could see this as an “example of partisan politics,” which she insists is not the case: “This letter nominating Dr. Blasey Ford is not about partisan politics: 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.”
According to UNC’s website, the Distinguished Alumna Award “recognizes alumni for outstanding contributions to humankind.”
The only thing Blasey Ford contributed to was a media-fueled feeding frenzy.
Her false allegation of sexual misconduct nearly upended Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation.
It sparked a bitter divide in this country.
But her flimsy story was not found credible.
After all that, leftist professors want to give her an award for “bravery.”
Instead she should be nominated for an acting award.
