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:
I don’t think this is an issue of being surprised women think differently.
I think it’s about some people being angry and fed up with white women defending and enabling the white patriarchy. https://t.co/3OoJk21MFy

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:
Alternate view: Married women share values & interests with their partners (a pretty good recipe for a successful marriage) and tend to take similar policy views. And just maybe see The Patriarchy™️ as a gobbledygook social construct. You’re welcome.

Oh no the “patriarchy” is ruining our world. I cannot stand this victim mentality. I will not vote for someone who expresses it in any fashion. My husband (a white male) listens to my opinion about political issues. Why do you hate white people?

Or, some women understand the boogeyman patriarchy idea has just become a way for many to avoid responsibility for their actions and blame some imaginary oppression for their lack of success. 🤭

Who needs patriarchy? My observation is that left-leaning women do a fine job of destroying or attempting to destroy any women who disagree… #waronwomenbywomen

No, Kirsten. My “patriarchist” doesn’t own a handmaid. He wouldn’t even know what a handmaid is. He’s good, kind, generous, honest, hardworking, and contributed greatly to the advancement of women in the workplace. Stop slandering men like him.

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.
Moms have 2 worry about sons being FALSELY ACCUSED of SEXUAL ASSAULT by a woman who wants 2 get back at them if they break up. DEMOCRATS “ALL MEN ARE GUILTY & DON’T DESERVE A TRIAL” if a woman comes forth! https://t.co/uq32GPpR5t, https://t.co/4uXvQEXhtR pic.twitter.com/EahW93n4sO

I use to think you were a bit narrow minded when you were on the O’Reilly Factor but you proven you are totally ignorant. Women who will stand up for Brett Kavanaugh is based on FACTS not emotions. Not a bit of proof he did anything wrong.

Here’s yet another example of false rape charges @KirstenPowers. I’ve sent you many examples. Are you ready to admit that corroborating evidence must be provided before ascribing a heinous crime like sexual abuse to any person? You & others owe Justice Kavanaugh an apology. https://t.co/OpILyM6g5v

Norhing will satisfy you except a finding of guilt. Just go ahead and say it. If proof of another assailant was found, you and others would still hate kavanaugh because he is a conservative and might vote to overturn Roe v Wade. Conservatives aren’t as stupid as you think.
