At some point during Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s testimony last week, Marion Stanford grabbed a piece of wooden paneling, some paint and the $5 brushes she had purchased awhile back.
She brought the items back to her living room, where she had been glued to the television watching the drama unfold in the Senate that day.
She had heard Christine Blasey Ford tell senators that Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, was the boy who sexually assaulted her 36 years ago, when they were both in high school. And as she listened to Kavanaugh’s forceful denial and defense of himself, Stanford began to paint.
She drew an elephant, the Republican symbol, in red, white and blue — with its trunk climbing up the skirt of a little blond girl in pink. Her eyes are wide open, and so is her mouth. The word “HELP!” is right next to her face. On the opposite side of the paneling, she painted the words, “YOUR VOTE MATTERS,” in the same shade of pink.
“It is pornography, and you can’t display it,” Stanford recalled the police officer saying. She was given a few choices, she said: Take the sign down, refuse and get arrested, or let police confiscate it. She said she chose the last option. - Excerpted from the Washington Post
The Republican political party has catapulted the culture and women's basic human rights back several centuries. It's as if the men and a few women responsible for putting sexual assailant and out-of-control drunkard Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court think this is the best women deserve.
It's astonishing that the most powerful country in the world is now being run by misogynist, cruel, women-hating, privileged, self-aggrandizing, treasonous jerks. I can understand the men but the women who support Kavanaugh? I feel as though I have been dropped into an alternative universe in a sci-fi-horror novel, rather like how I felt on September 11, 2001.
I've lost count of all the ways they have damaged the U.S. in the two years they have been in control. What's most incredulous is all the people - especially women! - who think this is all ok. Is there a demonic wizard behind the screen pulling levers to make this craziness happen?
This woman's sign is not partisan politics. This is an attempt to salvage the well-being of the country and the people in it.
