Tomorrow, Dr. Blasey Ford, who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of a violent sexual assault when they were high school classmates, will testify before Congress. She is one of several women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Lawmakers are expected to vote on his confirmation to the Supreme Court on Friday.
The confirmation hearing has sparked a protest among law students at Yale, where Kavanaugh attended law school, and where he according to another woman, sexually harassed her. The students are demonstrating on campus and in Washington D.C.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
This morning, Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, the country’s largest Christian university, announced that he plans on sending 300 Liberty students to counter protest.
His announcement came before controversial speaker Candace Owens took the stage and spoke against “victim mentality,” while calling feminism a “radical women’s movement.” She also suggested that men are facing a culture war. On Twitter, she’s also openly mocked Dr. Ford, and said that she is lying:
Thank you all for allowing me this safe space to share my non-story, 34 years later.
