William Rainford, dean of the National Catholic School of Social Service, discovered recently how much of a bad idea it is to express any sort of opinion on the Brett Kavanaugh accusations that is contrary to that held by the majority of left-wing Americans.
Rainford posted a tweet sharing his doubt about the accusations leveled at Kavanaugh by Julie Swetnick and the school he’s employed by immediately suspended him for it.
Got to love universities who are open-minded bastions of freedom of speech.
“Rainford’s tweets of the past week are unacceptable. We should expect any opinion he expresses about sexual assault to be thoughtful, constructive, and reflective of the values of Catholic University, particularly in communications from the account handle @NCSSSDean,” University president John Garvey wrote in a statement on Friday.
The tweet was posted on Wednesday, the day before Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh were scheduled to appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault at a house party in 1982.
“Swetnick is 55 y/o. Kavanaugh is 52 y/o. Since when do senior girls hang with freshmen boys? If it happened when Kavanaugh was a senior, Swetnick was an adult drinking with&by her admission, having sex with underage boys. In another universe, he would be victim & she the perp!” Rainford wrote on Twitter using the handle @NCSSSDean.
After being pummeled by the left and by folks shaming him, Rainford issued a written apology for his very astute observation.
“I want to send you a message asking for forgiveness.” Rainford wrote. “I offer no excuse. It was impulsive and thoughtless and I apologize.
“Let me assure you that I am keenly aware from decades of combined law enforcement and social work experience and education that victims who suffer assault and abuse need to be heard, respected, and provided treatment and justice,” he continued.
“I am aware that many of you are angry, frustrated, and hurt. For this I am truly sorry,” he said.
Since the incident unfolded, Rainford has deactivated his social media accounts.
If the left was truly all about tolerance, then junk like this would never happen. Truth be told, they only thing liberals care about is the consolidation of power in their own hands. Sad.
