In the wake of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, one would think that the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would be taken seriously. However, men like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Chuck Grassley have gone to great lengths to paint Kavanaugh as the victim rather than the perpetrator. “You’ve watched the fight. You’ve watched the tactics. But here’s what I want to tell you. In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court,” said McConnell at the Value Voters Summit, a conservative event that took place in the nation’s capital. More recently, Sen. Grassley has announced plans to expedite the voting process necessary to confirm Kavanaugh. This would move the vote to this week, before the hearing with Christine Blasey Ford, one of the three women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault. “We have done it because we want to de-politicize the whole process,” said Grassley, who has actively pushed for Kavanaugh’s confirmation to take place prior to the midterms this November. The gross negligence demonstrated by many Republicans involved in this situation reveals that their political agenda takes precedence over all else. Ultimately, the actions of McConnell and Grassley are not only anti-women, but anti-American.
