With liberals everywhere claiming to “believe” Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Ford’s own family has been shockingly absent from the lists of those loud supporters.
There have been a lot of odd aspects to this fish tale offered by Ford that Brett Kavanaugh may have groped her 35 years ago in a place and at a time she can’t remember. But despite her hazy accusations, failed memories, and the complete lack of any witnesses, many left-wingers have jumped to proclaim that they “believe her.”
Now, remember, Ford has never personally met ANY of these elected Democrat politicians who claim to “believe” her. So, they are all essentially claiming to believe someone they don’t know, have never met, and have never spoken to.
But, despite the absurdity of claiming to “believe” someone who they haven’t sat down with, much less actually heard her story, these Democrats are universal in their claims that Ford must be telling the truth.
Elected Democrats are not alone. A long list of people have also jumped up to insist they believe Ford.
But there is one group of people who have not come forward with loud support for Christine Blasey Ford. And it’s her own family.
This is pretty incredible, really. With the whole nation erupting in a firestorm over her accusations, this woman’s own family has remained purposefully quiet!
Per the Washington Post of all places:
Christine’s own parents and siblings — the Blaseys — have not released any similar statement of support. As their daughter and sister has become the country’s most talked-about woman for accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault while both were in high school, the Blaseys have strategically avoided the press. Voicemails, texts, emails and letters from reporters have gone unanswered. Friends of the family have politely declined to comment on what they are going through.
Reached by phone on Tuesday, Ford’s father, Ralph Blasey Jr., offered a brief endorsement of his daughter. “I think all of the Blasey family would support her. I think her record stands for itself. Her schooling, her jobs and so on,” he said before hanging up. Moments later, after picking up the phone a second time, he added: “I think any father would have love for his daughter.”
The Blasey family’s reticence is notable amid the outpouring of support for Ford as the 51-year-old research psychologist from California prepares to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her highly anticipated appearance will come four days after another sexual misconduct accusation against Kavanaugh, from his Yale University classmate Deborah Ramirez, was published in the New Yorker. Kavanaugh has denied both accounts, telling Fox News, “I had never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever. I’ve always treated women with dignity and respect.”
That is pretty amazing, isn’t it?
One would think that if this woman was trustworthy, her own family would be the first people on earth to jump to her support.
But it’s crickets from the Blasey family. Her mother, father, her sisters and brothers, all are refusing to come forward with support!
What do you think that means?
