Busted: Gov. Walker’s ‘queer’-hating Supreme Court justice caught slut-shaming victims of rape

Published

on

It was revealed this week that a recently-appointed Wisconsin Supreme Court justice who was found to have written disparaging things about liberals and the LGBT community also said that women were responsible for campus date rape.

The Journal Sentinel uncovered student newspaper columns written 24 years ago by Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley where she complained that “queers are valued more than the innocent victims of more prevalent ailments.”

Bradley, who said that she was upset about the election of President Bill Clinton in 1992, argued that people would be “better off getting AIDS than cancer under Clinton because it would get more funding.”

“But the homosexuals and drug addicts who do essentially kill themselves and others through their own behavior deservedly receive none of my sympathy,” she wrote. “We’ve just had an election (in 1992) which proves the majority of voters are either totally stupid or entirely evil.”

For his part, Gov. Scott Walker (R) insisted that he had not known of Bradley’s columns in the student newspaper at Marquette University when he nominated her to the state Supreme Court.

In a 1992 column that was unearthed this week, Bradley defended scholar Camille Paglia, who had been banned from several campuses after she wrote that “blaming the victim” of campus rape was “common sense.”

According to Bradley, Paglia “legitimately suggested that women play a role in date rape.” In a column titled “Awaiting Feminism’s Demise,” Bradley said that feminists were “largely composed of angry, militant, man-hating lesbians who abhor the traditional family.”

A spokesperson for Bradley said that she would have to re-read the 1992 column before commenting on it.

Foreign troll accounts have been working to sow division and create a "circular firing squad" among American veterans, a veterans advocate warned CNN on Wednesday.

During an interview with Brianna Keilar, Kris Goldsmith of Vietnam Veterans for America talked about the ways that trolls have been infiltrating veterans organizations and trying to divide their members along political and racial lines.

Goldsmith said that two years ago his group notice an "impostor Facebook account" that would spread misinformation and propaganda to its members.

"After months of studying it, we came to recognize that it was an entity somewhere in Bulgaria who was spreading falsified news," he explained. "So what they do is copy and paste a real story about something like veterans' benefits possibly getting cut, change the date, and make it look fresh and get people upset."

Published

on

Rep. Steven Cohen (D-TN) dropped the hammer on Trump lackey Corey Lewandowski for obstructing the House Judiciary Committee earlier this week during an appearance on CNN.

CNN's Brianna Keilar started off the interview by questioning Cohen why Democratic lawmakers didn't do a better job of anticipating how Lewandowski would behave during his testimony. Cohen responded by saying he and his colleagues did just that.

"We knew he was going to be petulant, we knew he was an enforcer and a thug, and we knew he would try to protect the president," he said. "That's what he did."

Cohen went on to praise Democratic lawmakers for asking Lewandowski tough questions, and he said attorney Barry Berke "destroyed" the former Trump campaign manager.
