Professor accusing Kavanaugh is radical SJW (see correction)

CORRECTION:

An earlier version of this article confused two different California professors named Christine Ford and featured student evaluations of the other Professor Christine Ford.  American Thinker apologizes to Professor Christine Ford and to readers for the error.  A revised version of the piece follows:

It's true that Bill Clinton's liberal '90s apologists justified his sexual misconduct with the claim "character doesn't matter."  It nonetheless does, and since Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hopes are being influenced by accusations that may speak to his character, it's only fair to examine the character of his accuser.  And this woman, Palo Alto University psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, is a radical social justice warrior.

Ford's accusation goes back to her high school days, in approximately 1982, when she would have been 15 and Kavanaugh 17.  She claims that Kavanaugh lay on top of her and groped her while heavily intoxicated and that the incident ended when a friend of his, Mark Judge, jumped on both of them, sending them all tumbling (you can read a more thorough account here).

Whatever the truth of the matter, however, certainly true is that Ford is a radical leftist who'd be inclined to zealously oppose a Kavanaugh nomination.  For example, Breitbart reports that she not only has attended anti-Trump events, but actually donned a pink "brain p---- hat" for a 2017 anti-Trump march.

Breitbart also reports, in a different piece, that Ford was party to an ACLU letter opposing President Trump's border enforcement efforts.  She signed it as Christine Blasey, Ph.D. Psychologist, rubber-stamping "statements that accused Trump of using southern border enforcement to 'traumatize children' and claimed the Zero Tolerance policy was 'violating fundamental human rights,'" writes the news organ.

Moreover, Bookworm Room points out something interesting.  Ford didn't mention her allegation against Kavanaugh until 2012-13.  Why is this significant?

Because when it appeared as if GOP nominee Mitt Romney might win that year's presidential election, liberal pundits "stoked Democrat fears that Kavanaugh, a conservative, might get on the Supreme Court and overturn Obamacare," reports Bookworm. 

So is Kavanaugh's conservatism the real motivation for Ford's curiously timed allegation?  Perhaps.  And even if her claims are true, I very much doubt she'd have come forward were Kavanaugh a leftist reprobate in the mold of Slick Willie or Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy.  For a good example of such situational sexual mores, note that liberal reporter Nina Burleigh actually said in 1998 about B. Clinton, "I'd be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal."

As for Kavanaugh, unless it's shown that he's like Clinton and Kennedy and has exhibited a pattern of sexual wrongdoing, there's nothing to see here.  Ford claims that the 36-year-old alleged incident of sexual misconduct took place in a room with only her and the two boys present.  So while 65 women who knew Kavanaugh in high school have come forward to vouch for his character as a gentleman, Ford's lone word is the only claim against him.  It's not "he said, she said" but, at least right now, "she said – and he and everyone else said."
