I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice
From the very beginning this #KavanaughConfirmation process has been plagued by a lack of transparency. Justice should not be a partisan issue. And I am supremely confident that this nominee can deliver none. He has proven himself to be unhinged, unfit and unqualified.
He is a threat to our #civilrights to the rights of #women #immigrants #workers #POC #Kavanaugh His track record proves he lacks the impartiality & his testimony that he lacks the temperament to serve on the highest court.
This #KavanaughVote is a blow to the integrity of the United States Senate, a permanent black eye on the institution and a betrayal to every #survivor
And please, stop saying "#BrettKavanaugh is a "good man". This characterization is no evidence of his innocence. Good people do evil things everyday & most perpetrators are not strangers hiding behind bushes waiting to attack, they are people we know & trusted, just like our govt
