The sleazy new sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in The New York Times spurred sleazy talk from MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson of TheRoot.com on Sunday's AM Joy. He called him "the fifth guy in the gang rape." Jason is so partisan that he flip-flopped on Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) needing to resign for a racist yearbook page he made in medical school.
JASON JOHNSON: So this is giving me a flashback to all of the disgusting things that I thought about Brett Kavanaugh last year. We'll go to the technical things first -- there the mysterious debt, we don't know where that went. We have no idea where that went. I don’t know anybody who spends that much money on Nationals tickets, right? That doesn’t make any sense to me. And then you have the thousands of the legal documents -- right? -- things he wrote in the Bush administration that would Republicans wouldn't turn forward.
Then you have a history of sexual assault. I said last year, Joy, I've never heard of a guy who is a one-time rapist. I've never heard of a one-time sexual assaulter. I grew up with guys like this. He’s from around this area, right? He is the fifth guy in a gang rape. He’s the guy who comes in after he is drunk because everybody else encourages him and he can get away with it. He’s been pretty much covered his entire life. And now he’s on the Supreme Court, where he can move that same despicable misogynist attitude he has gotten away with his entire cowardly life to the greatest misogynist of all, which is the President of the United States.
...It is amazing when you have an administration that out of the millions of people who are qualified in this country of all races and genders consistently find men who beat, abuse, and sexually assault women. This ain't the first, the second, the fourth, or even the fifth guy -- they have found this nest of vipers that has infested this entire state. I'm not surprised that we found this out about Brett Kavanaugh. But I would be equally disgusted. Because if we don't have a Speaker of the House who can go after the president for this kind of behavior, I doubt you'll get anything about Brett Kavanaugh.
Reid added a rant that two of the five conservatives on the Supreme Court "have been accused of gross sexual misconduct" and "want to take women's rights of their own bodies away from them." oppose abortion.
Tiffany Cross added Kavanaugh's angry testimony showed white privilege: "There is no way a person of color or any woman could have sat there and preened about, you know, 'me and Opie and Tommy were best friends and drank beer and lifted weights, we were all buddies in this great life.' What came out of that was 'Man, it's such a dangerous time for these white men out here, they are the real victims of all of this'...their squad is filled with wife beaters, like you said, accused pedophiles," and then Johnson said "everything," and she added "exactly."
