"But why would she lie?"
https://globalnews.ca/news/4628088/bret ... ation-lie/
It's not Ford but, this is a woman, who lied, why would she?
There's billions of people on earth, why would it be so inconceivable that some of them like to lie?
Because people. Fucking. Lie. And this article isn't about Ford, but people, lie! At least there's a motive here, people often lie for no fucking reason.
Possibly the most plausible reason for Ford lying was that she's been assaulted at some point in her life and with the rising fame of her fellow high schooler, she somehow started to attribute the attempted rape to him. Even Kavanaugh himself has acknowledged this, that she actually believes her own bullshit at this point, as he said "something happened to her".
I don't even believe that, I'm not sure that anything happened to her. Call me crazy but I like to believe in some forms of evidence and facts, I think Kavanaugh and other political commentators were being too philanthropic about the human race when saying that Ford must have had something happen to her. This is not necessarily true, in fact it's not even "not necessarily true" there's fucking nothing to make me think that it could be true!
As her testimony unravelled before us and also the details about her as a person came out, it became clearer to me that actually, nothing probably has ever happened to her. She's simply insane, her own closest family didn't back her up, her ex-boyfriend (who broke up with her after she cheated on him) has records of her continually using or attempting to use his credit card a year after their break up. She has never been known to anyone to struggle with claustrophobia, she lied about the reason she installed a second door in her house (for a renter) she regularly fly's in planes for her job or even holidays, sometimes she's flown out to places for 2 fucking days! 2 days! Just jump on a plane to grab a coffee, I have minimal problems with flying but even I wouldn't like to pointlessly jump on an aircraft for such a short space of time being somewhere.
But anyway, "why would she lie" should be extinct as an argument. If anyone wants to believe in her based on her alleged testimony then fine, that's one thing, even though I think that's ridiculous (particularly as the people she said would definitely back her up- they didn't back her up) but fine whatever.
If, however, you genuinely believe "why would she lie?" then I'm afraid you are a victim of bias. Because lying for attention/money/fame or not even any of those things, or even just to be a psychopathic liar! These are regular occurrences in human life, it happens daily in people's personal lives, it happens in the news regularly.
This just can't be an argument anymore, if you think this is an argument or justified reason, then your thoughts are pointless.
If you want to focus on Kavanaugh then that's one thing, but you should scratch "why would she lie?" off as part of your reasoning. Reason?
