Today’s Washington soap opera will undoubtedly revolve around the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill.
No other story is bigger in the Beltway today, aside from the recent revelations that two men have come forward to claim that they were responsible for the assault on Dr. Ford – not Brett Kavanaugh.
Of course, this news came at such a time that the nation couldn’t justify derailing the testimony train, especially given the glut of stipulations that were agreed upon just to simply reach this point of clarity.
Now, in typical “resistance” fashion, an assuredly nasty crowd is set to gather in the nation’s capital in order to let their anti-conservative voices be heard.
Thankfully, they won’t be alone.
Liberty University is taking a page out of Yale’s playbook, sending hundreds of students who volunteered to go to Washington, DC, to rally in support of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. announced at the university’s convocation on Wednesday that the university would offer 300 students the chance to skip classes if they wished to support Kavanaugh and provide a counter to students, such as those from Yale University, protesting President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee in the nation’s capital.
“Liberty University is only three hours from D.C., so we try to give our students a chance to get involved in national politics,” Falwell said. “If you want to be excused from classes tomorrow, go to Washington and counter what the Yale students are doing. Support Judge Kavanaugh, we’ve got 300 spots for you.”
This, folks, is what the First Amendment is all about, and we couldn’t be more proud of the fine Americans at Liberty University for standing up for what they believe in.
