Democrats were losing their minds yesterday over the oral arguments in the Supreme Court case that some feel might result in overturning Roe v. Wade.
While many of the Democrats were going off a cliff with the crazy, you can always count on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to ramp up the insanity just a bit more. According to AOC, Justice Brett Kavanaugh should have recused himself from any consideration of the abortion case because he had been “credibly accused of sexual assault.”
It’s hard to believe how you get someone this confused elected to high office. She was elected in New York City, so perhaps that explains it, but this is next level lack of understanding of anything — from the facts to the law.
Kavanaugh wasn’t “credibly accused of sexual assault” on one count, let alone multiple counts. Christine Blasey Ford had no evidence against Justice Kavanaugh, and her story kept constantly changing. The accusations were never corroborated. Indeed, Ford’s friend disputed that such a party as Ford claimed ever occurred and said that Ford-allies pressured her to get her to change her story.
None of that has anything to do with Kavanaugh’s ability to decide the abortion case and if AOC thinks it does, she doesn’t understand the first thing about the concept of recusing from a case. Further, any court decision isn’t legalizing “forced birth” — it would deal with whether or not abortion is a question that should be decided by the legislatures in the states, and whether it was improperly taken out of their hands in the Roe case.
AOC then trips further over the cliff, suggesting that that the Supreme Court justices appointed by President Donald Trump aren’t legitimate because he was elected via a minority. Translation: elected properly under our constitutional system with enough electoral votes. She’s attacking the very legitimacy of the Supreme Court as well as the constitutional process by which we elect our presidents. This surely looks like an attack on democracy to me.
There was a lot of reaction to her tweets. But I’ll have to give the nod for the best response to Tara Reade.
Agreed @AOC. Remember that Biden *still*remains credibly accused of sexual assault (by me) & sexual harassment on multiple accounts (8) w/corroborated details and he was never investigated yet he is POTUS.Thank you for believing all survivors regardless of political affiliation https://t.co/Jmfng23jPU— Tara Reade 🦋 (@ReadeAlexandra) December 2, 2021
“Agreed @AOC,” Reade said. “Remember that Biden *still*remains credibly accused of sexual assault (by me) & sexual harassment on multiple accounts (8) w/corroborated details and he was never investigated yet he is POTUS. Thank you for believing all survivors regardless of political affiliation.”
Nicely done! Reade’s allegations were far more credible than Ford’s were – – she had contemporaneous witnesses she told about sexual harassment; her mother called into CNN at the time and told them about a problem her daughter was having with a senator. And her divorce documents indicate that she told her husband about sexual harassment in Joe Biden’s office. Yet AOC doesn’t care about credible accusations against Joe Biden.
