Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, seems awfully concerned about the way certain people might be treating Christine Blasey Ford, the 51-year-old who claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.
“I hope that each and every one of us will immediately denounce the horrific treatment of Dr. Blasey Ford,” Feinstein wrote on Twitter Friday.
“That this brave woman is receiving death threats and has been forced to flee with her family is appalling and heartbreaking. This abuse must stop. We’re better than this.”

No sane person wants Ford to be threatened, of course. But apparently, that same concern isn’t being shown to the Kavanaugh family, who are undergoing threats of their own. (Don’t expect to see it played up in the biased mainstream media.)
According to an article by Fox News, the Kavanaugh family has received threatening emails since Ford has come forward, emails that have included death threats. We warn you that there’s some graphic language ahead and that reader discretion is advised.
One email, with the subject line “Did your know your husband is a rapist?????” asked Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley, “Hey b—-, did you know your husband was a rapist before you married him? F— you and your f—— family.”
Another email to Ashley Kavanaugh, written with the aid of caps lock, had the subject line “F— YOU AND YOUR RAPIST HUSBAND.”
“F— YOU, RAPE ENABLING C—. YOUR HUSBAND IS A LIAR, THIEF, RAPIST AND PROBABLY A PEDOPHILE,” it read. “BURN IN HELL YOU WORTHLESS F—— C—,” the email stated. “MAY YOU, YOUR HUSBAND AND YOUR KIDS BURN IN HELL YOU F—–G PIECES OF TRASH. EAAAAATTTTT S————!!!!!!!!!!”
Another email read: “Please tell your rapist, lying, cheating, corrupt b—- of a husband to put a bullet in his ugly f—–g skull.
“My condolences to you for being married to a rapist. Although you probably deserve it.”
In addition to these lovely missives, there are also death threats being aimed at the judge himself, according to Fox News.
Now, in this case, neither Kavanaugh nor Ford is being treated fairly. However, one of the more disturbing facts involving the threats and obloquies being sent Kavanaugh’s way is that there’s absolutely no presumption of innocence here.
Naturally, Feinstein isn’t calling for fairness. She isn’t calling for restraint on both sides.
In fact, by specifically taking one side, she’s helping foment the threats against the Kavanaughs — who were introduced to the country as simply a loving American family.
Remember how Kavanugh talked about them the night he was nominated?
Now, granted, these emails are probably being penned by disturbed individuals. But it doesn’t help anyone’s case to turn a blind eye when these disturbed individuals attack one individual side.
Everyone ought to condemn these attacks against both Ford and the Kavanaughs. Now, let’s see the liberals do it.
