No wonder Kavanaugh accuser can’t remember details
Posted on September 20, 2018 by Jay Baker
Details of the claimed encounter between Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh are slim.
Ford, through a letter that found its way to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and via her attorney, left wing political activist Debra Katz, claims that while she and Kavanaugh were teenagers, a drunken Kavanaugh attempted to rape her by locking her in a room, clamping his hand over mouth and clumsily trying to remove her clothes. Beyond that, she can’t seem to remember much.
She’s implicated two other men who were supposedly both at the party the night the alleged attack occurred. Both say they have no recollection of such a thing happening. She can’t remember how she got to the party, what night the party was taking place, where it was happening or how she got home. But the one thing she’s adamant about is, Kavanaugh tried to rape her.
There may be a very good reason for Ford’s sketchy memory. Apparently, alcohol-fueled debauchery was an every weekend occurrence for girls at the Holton-Arms school.
The website Cult Of The 1st Amendment presciently took screen shots of Holton-Arms yearbooks before they were scrubbed from the web. The yearbooks from the years Ford were in school reveal a promiscuous and binge-drinking party culture that was apparently condoned by faculty and parents of the privileged class.
In one yearbook from 1984, Ford’s senior year, Ford is pictured at a Halloween party from her junior year. The caption next to the image reads:
Lastly one cannot fail to mention the climax of the junior social scene, the party. Striving to extend our educational experience beyond the confines of the classroom, we played such intellectually stimulating games as Quarters, Mexican Dice and everyone’s favorite, Pass-Out, which usually resulted from the aforementioned two.
As Cult Of The 1st Amendment notes, passages from the yearbooks indicate that the 10th grade seemed to be the year for the ritual initiation into the party scene. One sophomore girl is described as having thrown multiple all night benders featuring a male erotic dancer in a gold g-string. The 1982 yearbook published multiple pictures of minors drinking heavily, beer cans stacked up, liquor repeatedly glorified, “boys, beer and “the ‘Zoo’ atmosphere”. The caption on the right side of one image mocks the faculty and parents, “Come on, you’re really too young to drink.”
The 1983 yearbook talks of parties with the boys from Georgetown Prep, the school Kavanaugh attended. The caption accompanying a collage of photos featuring kids drinking reads:
“In case you weren’t into the Holton party scene, here is a brief glimpse at one of the calmer get-togethers.”
And finally, from the 1984 issue we get to the gist of what might just be behind Ford’s memory problem, with the book’s final passage:
And there were always parties to celebrate any occasion. Although these parties are no doubt unforgettable, they are only a memory lapse for most, since loss of consciousness is often an integral part of the party scene.
It’s entirely possible Ford’s telling the truth that during one of these alcohol-fueled parties someone locked her in a room, drunkenly tried to remove her clothes and clamped a hand over her mouth to keep her from screaming. It’s also entirely possible that that someone was Kavanaugh. Or it may have been someone else entirely.
But her brain was apparently so addled with alcohol that she can’t remember. Nor can anyone else.
There are reasons for the personal liberty crowd to oppose a surveillance state-loving swamp creature like Kavanaugh. But the dubious and sketchy 35-year-old claims of an apparently drunken teenager aren’t them.
