At first, we’d thought this was either an old tweet or the New York Post was really behind the curve; it was Oct. 30 when Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford accepted the YWCA Silicon Valley’s Empowerment Award. But this one’s different; it’s the ACLU’s Courage Award. At this rate, will she also pick up Best Actress at the Oscars?

She’s going to have to dedicate a room in her beach house to trophies if this keeps up. The New York Post reports:
Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, spoke Sunday after she accepted the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the ACLU of Southern California in Beverly Hills.
She said: “When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information, and I was prepared for a variety of outcomes, including being dismissed.”
No, actually, we would have welcomed her information … like where it happened, when it happened, who else was there, how she got home, etc. Instead, we had Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse going through Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook with a magnifying glass and black light.
Let’s have a big round of applause:
We truly are living in an upside down world, where an organization that is supposed to stand for liberty is opposed to due process. Truly remarkable times.

ACLU once cared about due process and the presumption of innocence.

But then it is the ACLU
and the left
It’s all about signaling
Form over function
Style over substance#Duplicitous

The ACLU once stood up to the mob. Now they are the mob.

I thought I was just about presenting what happened, not awards and money. ?

It does take a lot of courage to lie this much I guess!

“And the award for most courageous lying in an attempt to ruin a man’s life because you want to kill unborn babies on demand goes to…..”

She went into hiding prior to the testimony and has been in hiding, protected and out of the public afterwards. But, I have to agree that standing up and giving a story with a lesser amount of credible evidence of proof than the existence of unicorns could be considered “ballsy”

Courage award for making up a story? The ACLU is such a joke.
— Chris Betchley (@nxtleveldesign) November 18, 2019
Courage has become a trivialized word at this point.

You want to know who needs a courage award, her friend who refused to lie and say she remembered the party when she doesn’t remember ever meeting Kavanaugh. And if Ford’s BFF never did, how do we know Ford ever did?

She got an award and her best friend, at the time that was with her, got ridiculed. What a sad chapter in history.

Wow. This isn’t crazy or anything

did she use a scared little child voice to accept or are those days over

Can the members board of directors of the ACLU prove they don’t molest their children? I have credibly accused them so it sounds like they do.
— Deputy Van Halen (@Serenitynow418) November 18, 2019
And who is this Rodger Baldwin for whom the award is named? Sounds sketchy.
I'm old enough to remember when everyone asked what reason she had for lying. Good times.

Shocker: National Law Journal reporter Ryan Lovelace writes that she believes Ford was motivated to come forward and testify against Kavanaugh in part to help protect Roe v. Wade from being overturned.
