Is Senator Hirono anti-woman?
Hirono responded, “She said she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks she was assaulted, which is even more insulting than saying she gave a very credible account. I certainly believe Dr. Ford. Anyone watching her testimony would conclude she was being very truthful. One thing she recollects with 100 percent accuracy is that Judge Kavanaugh, Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her.”
Guest host Dana Bash pressed Hirono further, asking, “You think that Senator Collins is insulting to Professor Ford?”
“To say that she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, what is that?” Hirono fired back. “Is she mistaken? She, herself, said she spoke to so many survivors from her state and elsewhere. All of us have been hearing stories and accounts from survivors going back many, many years where they kept all these painful, traumatic accounts to this is what happens with sexual assault survivors. They do not come forward.”
Hirono spouts this view that many sexual assault victims do not “come forward”. How would anyone be able to verify that? They cannot of course. The claims that a certain percentage of victims never come forward also is impossible to prove isn’t it? Without a total number, we can never say how many go unreported, it is an impossibility. Yes, certainly some victims do not report their stories. But how many no one can say. And blindly believing any woman, or man for that matter, that makes a claim they were assaulted is a fool’s course. To pursue such a course is fraught with danger and will lead to a time when accusations can be used as weapons. The left of course, do not mind to such a time coming, as long as they can destroy anyone that dares oppose them.
I predicted a year ago, when the #MeToo movement started, that the left would soon weaponize it to target enemies. Sad to say, I was right. And this is terrible for everyone, including women who actually are sexually assaulted or raped. But, to the left, no price is too high for others to pay for social justice
