Supporters of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford disrupted an event honoring Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by blowing rape whistles, screaming “we believe survivors” and projecting an image of Blasey Ford’s testimony onto a big screen.
I didn't attend the Federalist Society's swanky dinner event honoring Brett Kavanaugh, so I don't know anything about the food. But I do know one thing for sure…

This is the sound of several dozen rape whistles outside Brett Kavanaugh’s speech at the Federalist Society dinner in Union Station.

On Thursday night, a hero’s welcome greeted the associate justice who made it to the Supreme Court by the narrowest of margins last October after two contentious Senate confirmation hearings.
The annual black-tie dinner of the Federalist Society – the nation’s premier gathering of conservatives in the law – is dedicated to the memory of the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. But Kavanaugh, 54, who demurred when invited to be the headliner last year, became its shining star Thursday.
“I am optimistic about the future of America and our independent judiciary,” Kavanaugh said in a self-effacing, 34-minute address almost completely devoid of controversial topics. He heaped praise on virtually everyone who helped him get to the nation’s most lofty bench as well as his eight colleagues already there, regardless of ideology.
