Kirsten Powers says libs are mad at ‘white women defending, enabling white patriarchy.’ She got an earful.

Though many woman disbelieve Christine Ford Blasey’s sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh for a variety of legitimate reasons, including a lack of evidence and Blasey’s shady past, liberals continue to attribute their disbelief to sexism.

Take Kirsten Powers, who fled Fox News two years ago for a position at CNN, where she transformed from someone who once  slammed then-President Barack Obama for taking no action to stop the murder of Christians overseas in to a zealot who blames the disbelief on the so-called patriarchy.

Look what she tweeted over the weekend:

She issued this stunning tweet in response to a piece by The New York Times that argues against the liberal temptation to accuse conservative women — particularly those who support President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — of betraying their gender.

“On the left, they’re being reviled as gender traitors, depicted as betraying the sisterhood and acting against their own best interests,” contributor Susan Chira wrote.

“But women don’t automatically ally with other women, as Senator Susan Collins’s vote to confirm Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court demonstrated,” she continued, referencing the key vote that pushed the justice onto the court. “Sisterhood doesn’t override partisanship or deeply held moral views. Victims of sexual harassment didn’t all believe Christine Blasey Ford. Women don’t act as one.”

It’s a simple, common-sense concept that explains why so many women disbelieved accuser Christine Ford Blasey’s sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. Some of those women were themselves sexual assault survivors. And some of those women may have even been Democrats.

But neither of these facts stopped them from judging Blasey’s accusations by their merit or the lack thereof. Some would argue that this is how things should be. Not liberals, though. To the identity politics-obsessed radical left, identity is everything.

This is why Powers’ tweet wasn’t shocking — she’d merely been echoing a sentiment that’s been expressed by countless other leftists, including failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who continues to blame her 2016 loss on the misogynist white women who keep the “patriarchy” alive.

As noted by many on social media, however, this sentiment is 100 percent wrong:

Especially in regard to Kavanaugh, whom they continue to support because, one, the evidence against him cited by Blasey is so unconvincing, and two, due process and the presumption of innocence still mean something to them.
