Powerful Judiciary Committee Republican Waves Off Women Rape Survivors and Tells Them to 'Grow Up'

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), like many Republicans in the Senate today, was confronted by a group of women, including rape survivors. The women, who are trying to convince Republicans to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, challenged Hatch. At 84 years old Sen. Hatch is the longest-serving Republican Senator in the history of the U.S., and as the President pro tempore of the Senate is the second-highest ranking member of the body.

6. This is the same dumbass who called Dr Ford "attractive" as a witness !

A scared and traumatized woman was testifying before him about being sexually attacked - and there he thought calling her an attractive witness was a good thing to do!. He's too old in his way of thinking and will never change. He's been in the Senate too long now and his lack of caring is un-befriggin-lievable!

9. Good for Hatch

 

For exposing the craven, emotionless, lack of empathy, uncivil way he and his ilk do things. The guy can "not believe" Ford, but to dismiss outright victims of sexual violence such as this is just pathetic. I don't know why anyone would be like this? Are they so blinded by political aspirations to have this judge planted on the court that they consider every women who comes out like this as "plants" or "political operatives?" Is he this cynical and jaded to think this? Or is it absolute misogyny, that the women folk should be seen and not heard?

My wife, who went to college between 88 and 92 recalls numerous times where frat guys were taking advantage of girls who were clearly passed out. She said certain frats on campus were known to spike punch and drink only beer themselves. The girls drank spiked punch and many passed out. She knows MANY GIRLS who were taken advantage of. The good side is she said her sorority was involved with a frat of good guys. She said if a girl ever passed out around those guys, they would either get her home, or put her somewhere to sleep. This particular frat never once took advantage of any girl, but other frats they were predators. WHAT frat would Kavanaugh likely be in?

10. These guys have just pissed off the wrong group of people, women.

With the vote to confirm boofer brett to the (no longer) supreme court tomorrow, this is no longer just about losing RoevWade, this is now about every girl or woman in this country who has had to put up with sexist crap of any sort, from assaults to discrimination.

I for one look forward to you women taking the reins of this country, the sooner the better!

12. About that threat that they'll get arrested...

These women are rape survivors. Getting arrested is the least of what they've feared.

Btw, this video is good material for general anti Republican ads.

13. Why are they suddenly being honest in public about what they think of us? They must really

think they have all this in the bag.

He thinks he's going to be one of the Gilead commanders.

He really needs to go. That video should be put everywhere he goes.
