Christine Blasey Ford Is the Poster Girl for Fake Sexual Assault Allegations

It’s hard to say with certainty whether Christine Blasey Ford has memory issues, mental problems, or is just a liar, but it is crystal clear that her allegations that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh aren’t true. So, when Sports Illustrated shoehorned her into announcing an award, it seemed really strange.

Crystal Mangum, the woman who falsely accused the Duke lacrosse team of rape, seems like a better fit here, but since she’s in prison, Ford may have been the next best option.

Of course, people get very angry when you point out the obvious fact that Ford made a false allegation. You get told, “This is why women who are sexually assaulted don’t come forward.” You should blame Ford for that. She’s the one who made a fake accusation during a high-profile Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Others will say, “Ford is a victim! She’s a survivor.” However, in this case, the victim is Brett Kavanaugh. He was the one falsely accused of something he didn’t do in front of the world, which makes her the perpetrator.

“Oh, but she doesn’t have anything to gain!” Well, except for $850,000 in GoFundMe money that goes straight into her pocket, offers to do a book deal, Sports Illustrated holding her up to be some kind of hero, and what appeared to be a chance to prevent Republicans from gaining a Supreme Court seat. The motivation for her to lie was ENORMOUS.

So, let’s cut to the chase. Why should people not believe Ford’s story?

Well, she claimed that roughly 37 years ago at a party a drunken Brett Kavanaugh acted like a hardened sexual predator by turning the music up to hide her screams, covering her mouth, treating her so roughly she thought she might die, and trying to sexually assault her. Meanwhile, his friend Mark Judge looked on, laughed, and weirdly tried to pile on top of Kavanaugh multiple times as part of some goofy game that doesn’t fit very well with the Ted Bundy imitation that began her story. Eventually, she claimed Judge and Kavanaugh started scuffling, which allowed her to run off to the bathroom. Then she stormed out of the house without talking to anyone, including her best friend, and went home. She claims she told no one about it for decades, received no medical attention, and didn’t file a police report.

So, let’s start unpacking this.

We have to say “roughly” 37 years ago because Ford didn’t actually know what year the alleged assault supposedly occurred. At different points in time, Ford said it happened in the “mid 1980s,”  “early '80s,” and 1982. Ford would have been 15 in 1982, but at another point she said it happened in her “late teens.” In other words, there’s no way of even pinning down the year this supposedly happened.
