Thankful Thursday: the I-can-live-with-myself edition

Image found on Twitter

Today as I witness the privilege of GOP white men in the Supreme Court confirmation hearing I am enraged, disgusted, heartbroken, sickened, and exhausted. Those men know Dr. Christine Blasey Ford spoke the truth. Deep down in their dark, slimy souls they know Kavanaugh is a sexual predator. But they don’t care. Not about women, not about truth or justice. Those men are all about patriarchy, greed, partisanship, and reactive ideology.

So what can I say this Thankful Thursday?  Today I am grateful I’m not a garbage human being.

  1. Those men care more about maintaining the status quo than about doing what’s right for their constituency. Exhausting as it is, we will have to put up a strong resistance every election until there is more balance in our government. Kudos to Ms. Ford for having the courage to stand up for those who have no voice…I would add that to the list of things to be thankful for…that there are still people who will speak out, even though it’s easier to remain silent.

  2. When the judiciary committee is so over-populated by elderly, white, male, Trump supporters, it is impossible for them to actually work for justice. What I saw in these hearings were politicians working for themselves and their own interests, a supreme court candidate in denial about a drinking problem that clouds his memory and his credibility, and a courageous woman survivor who was re-victimized by all of them. In other words, same old, same old.

    • You’re spot-on in your observations, Cindy. The re-victimization was the most painful of all and we all owe her an enormous debt for putting herself in that position. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me and I wish you a peaceful evening.
