New York Law Students Walk Out to Protest Kavanaugh Confirmation
“we’re not going to stop thinking that Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached for perjury.”
I cannot believe these guys are going to be lawyers. Students at the Brooklyn, NYU, and Cardozo law schools walked out of their classes on Wednesday to protest the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. From The Washington Post:
“We are in the middle of a national emergency,” student organizers wrote in a letter announcing the demonstration, which was coordinated with the National Lawyers Guild advocacy group. “We do not recognize Kavanaugh as a legitimate member of the United States Supreme Court.” They called on students to leave classes from Wednesday afternoon through Friday, and wrote, “We demand that anyone seeking to be elected to Congress in November commits to impeaching Kavanaugh to protect any semblance of rule of law and the people of our communities.”
You don’t recognize Kavanaugh as a legitimate member of the court? Well aren’t you special.
Over 30 organizations, including the National Lawyers Guild and Democratic Socialists of America, endorsed the strike that included 12 law schools.
Justine Medina helped organize the protests in New York and said, “There’s a lot of rage now all across the political spectrum.” (Someone alert the snowflake that it’s only the leftists. Us with a sane mind are cool and collective.)
Medina also said that protests have started “to become normalized” since most happen before or after work and school. Therefore, they “wanted to something that would actually disrupt.”
WaPo reported that “[S]ome students said they wouldn’t be able to miss classes, ignored the effort or questioned the strategy because Kavanaugh had already been confirmed.”
From The Chronicle of Higher Education:
The strike aims to push politicians and political candidates to support Kavanaugh’s impeachment on the grounds of alleged perjury, and to defend reproductive rights as members of the U.S. Congress, said Nikta Daijavad, a second-year student at New York University’s School of Law and a leader of NYU Law Women, which endorsed the strike.
Whether impeachment happens in the new Congress or a future one, “we’re not going to stop thinking that Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached for perjury,” Medina said.

Were we this stupid when we were young? I know that by twenty I understood innocent until proven guilty and the importance of due process.
That is because we come from a time when we were taught more how to think, not as much what to think.
These kids (and yes they are children regardless of their biological age) are not being taught to be lawyers they are being taught to be social activist. Though there are a few bright spots such as the Prof. for the most part that is all law school is and has been for the past decade or so.
Otherwise how can someone be part of Harvard Law Review and never actually write anything?
was I that stupid?
hell yeah even worse most likely.I did some damned foolish stuff that luckily didn’t kill me or others.
was I that disrespectful or lazy and/or coddled?
Yup! We did stupid stuff to have fun. Hate had no part.
In the interest of good fun, I wrote a computer program which calculated ideal measurements for young ladies, and boy did they love it. They would be knee deep around a terminal, laughing and joking.
They answered a series of questions, age, name, address, phone number, and their vital statistics, then the program came back with the ideal, and funny or not so funny comments concerning deviations from ideal.
I ran it for several weeks, and then when interest started to wane, I printed out lengthy reports with all that information, and posted them all over the place.
That last part is what got me in trouble, because that was the guys turn to pile up laughing around those reports, and collecting numbers for dating purposes.
Get these strikers to sign a petition and then we can see which ones argue a case in front of Kavanaugh. Probably none. They’ll all become ambulance chasers!
“we’re not going to stop thinking that Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached for perjury,”
If you actually believe that then the problem is that you aren’t thinking and need to start.
Get lots of pictures so we can identify them later.
Black , gender fluid and masculine females…
Prosecution, persecution without evidence. Warlock trials are unconstitutional.
The record shows that Kavanaugh didn’t commit perjury.
On the other hand, I believe Ford said that she couldn’t travel by air, she had two front doors because she was traumatized, she didn’t know who was paying her lawyers, and she “never” coached anyone on taking a polygraph exam. These statements need to be questioned more closely.
I’m pretty confident that Ford doesn’t want to pursue anything post-confirmation because she does not want her own background and statements scrutinized. I believe that the whole thing was a Dem operation, including the scrubbing of her social media and yearbooks, her meeting(s) prior to writing her letter, etc. We will probably never know all the facts, but I doubt they paint her – or the Democrats – in a positive light.
I would like to see Ford sued and subject to discovery.
Harvard, NYU, and other law schools being sued because of diversity waivers for law review selection. The Obamaization of Law Reviews.
Reproductive Rights…..so Kavanaugh isn’t going to allow women to have babies anymore!?!….
They are afraid that will will no longer be able to get safe abortions. Still, I find it difficult to understand why anyone would want someone like Ford to have babies. Do you really want to encourage the left to reproduce at higher rates?
Save their social posts and photos for The Bar investigation of whatever state these SJW fools try to apply.
Students walking out of class again. And who does that hurt? Whose minds get changed?
There are far too many colleges and universities today. Day care centers for chronic malcontents.
Washington “swamp” denizens come from somewhere.
Evidently, some of them come from swamp (a.k.a. “law”) schools.
They may as well walk out. They’re obviously not learning anything anyway.
“I cannot believe these guys are going to be lawyers.”
I believe it. I graduated from law school not that long ago, and my classes had a lot of snowflakes in them.
…“we’re not going to stop thinking that Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached for perjury,” …
Objection: cites facts not in evidence.
there is zero indication that she, or anyone else participating in this stupidity ever started thinking to begin with, or they wouldn’t be participating in it.
Greatest line was how impeaching Kavanaugh “to protect any semblance of the rule of law.” And who said lawyers aren’t funny? What “rule of law’ is that/ Innocent before being proved guilty? Discrimination? Slander? Defamation? Hiding alleged evidence? Claiming you were in Vietnam when you weren’t? Or disclosing classified info and then claiming he didn’t know that “C” stood for classified?
And to think how many Asians were denied entrance into law schools for these morons…
There are two words that we see a lot in today’s antics and they are “Think” and “Feel”. If one says that “I think Kavanaugh is guilty of perjury” then it indicates that they have thought about it and actually used some form of logic. However, when one says “I feel Kavanaugh is guilty of perjury” it means that they are emotional and like most protesters haven’t put any thought into it and are only reacting to an emotional instinct. For this crowd to be aspiring lawyers is sickening. The entire legal process was overlooked in the Kavanaugh inquisition and emotions led the charge. Women all over the country leveled hate at this man even though he was never proven to be guilty of any illegal act.
Lobotomized Lunatics. They don’t seem particularly concerned about Susan Rice’s errors before Congress, James Clapper’s misrepresentations of the nature of surveillance before Congress or Andrew McCabe’s misstatements.
Then we have Uranium One, Benghazi, Solyndra, Fast & Furious, IRS targeting of Conservative Groups, planeloads of cash to Iran, the Hillary email scandal and her involvement with a fake dossier.
All of no concern to these cretins. Scary that they will be taking the bar exam.
I believe that Ken Starr had a perjury indictment prepared against Hillary, but they decided not to pull the trigger. Kavanaugh played a role in its drafting. I wonder how much of this is pay back?
Choice, Sex, Responsibility. #Dignity
Sex, Regrets, Choice… summary judgment, cruel and unusual punishment. #Denial
The cops have just pulled up.

“”We are in the middle of a national emergency,” student organizers wrote in a letter announcing the demonstration,…”
No, we’re not unless you consider your poopy diaper to be a national concern.
A national emergency was when a sitting U.S. President was assassinated in 1963 by a communist.
A national emergency was when a culture changing civil rights leader was assassinated in 1968 by a racist, and ignited nationwide race riots.
A national emergency was a deeply unpolpular war in Asia that had its beginnings in the 1920s as resistance to French imperialism, and eventually resulted in the death of 58,000 US Military men & women.
A national emergency was when a former US AG was assassinated in Los Angeles during his campaign for potus in 1968.
A national emergency was when Ohio national guardsmen gunned down 13 college students in 1970 during a protest against aforementioned war in Asia.
A national emergency was when a sitting US President resigned from office because he was a crook and faced numerous crimes for impeachment…
Shall I go on, or is your poopy diaper too great an impediment? Law stundents. Phffft.
Elections have consequences. The system worked. Your side lost. Move. On. Dot. Org.
I was in college when the National Guard/Kent State shooting took place (not at Kent State). One of the professors told the class that if they were too upset to continue they could leave the class with the grade they had at that point in time. About half the class stood up to leave and the professor added, “of course your grade to date is incomplete”.
Most sat back down.
So, you are being sued, or are suing, for millions of dollars in damages, 10years from now. Who do you want representing you? The law student who went to class, worked hard and graduated at the top of his or her class? Or the entitled dweeb who cut class to engage in a protest that no one knows or cares about, which will have exactly ZERO effect in the real world?
I think I may have inadvertently down-arrowed you because of the stupid way this Comment section is set up. Sorry, I didn’t mean to do that.
Anyway, I doubt that any of these SJW will ever have a job in a reputable law firm representing real people with real problems because they’d have to – you know – actually work. Practicing law isn’t easy. It takes dedication and many, many hours ferreting out the correct legal questions and then spending the time necessary to research the law on both sides of the issues in order to credibly represent the client. No, they’ll find a place in academia teaching multi-gender, shape-shifting grievance studies or some similar faux discipline.
Look at the photos. None of these kids actually has the smarts or dedication to be a lawyer. As I wrote this I glanced up at a painting of Abraham Lincoln in our library. It may be the way the light is hitting it, but he appears to be weeping.
One of Stanford Law School’s recent publications hyped words to the effect that “law is not about the courtroom or law firm.”
I don’t have the exact quote because I tossed it.
These people do not intend to represent me. They intend to rule me. Their qualification is their political ideology not their legal ming. The FBI and the DOJ will recruit them and we, the taxpayers, will pay them well.
The real lawyers will ruled by (and overruled by them as judges)these morons.
“…not their legal mind.” Spelling!
I realize that I have not studied law but exactly what statement or question do these “students” think Kavanaugh perjured himself on?
I do not recognize them as legitimate students.
This just highlights why I believe she needs to be fully investigated. Her records, her friends, the communications between her, Feinstein, Schumer, the polygraph records subpoenaed, the whole nine yards.
It needs to be shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that either she lied or Kavanaugh lied. I suspect it will show she did.
If she isn’t investigated, and brought up on charges for perjury if it turns out she lied, this will happen again, just like I am positive that Moore was receiving the same treatment. This not only exposes the dangers involved in this stupid Me Too movement, how innocent can be accused and some lose their lives through vindictiveness, but how the Democrats didn’t just go in the mud but down into the sewers and cesspools.
Enough of Republicans thinking the Democrats are their friends. They aren’t. We are the enemy, as Obama so clearly stated.
Let these snowflakes, whom more than half probably just did this to get out of class, see how stupid they were. Let them see why we have the presumption of innocence unless we are proven guilty.
If we don’t we have already lost any chance of saving this country from the leftists who hate us and this country, and are willing to do anything to destroy the US.
If vague unverified charges about high school behavior are disqualifying for being a justice of the supreme court or even being a judge, what about protesting against the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ when a law student?
Obviously these people never expect to be considered for a judge-ship. And they are right!
I think this could be the start of a new legal trend. At trial, if the judge gives you a ruling you don’t like, just walk out and the trial will have to be stopped. At oral argument, if the judge asks a question you don’t like, just walk out. I predict this is the future of the law.
I keep replying to these people where are they going find 66 Senators. They could only find 49 to oppose him. Of the Senators who voted for Justice K, only 9 are up for reelection. Most of who will win, and one ( Manchin ( who loes will be replaced by someone who likes Justice K better.
With any luck the repubs will get a couple extra seats in the Senate and then they can really put judges in place all over America.
And the pansies can wet their diapers all day long in protest.
Dox them all. Let is show up on background checks. The Internet never forgets.
They all enter law school with a skull full of mush, but unfortunately for society, they all graduate with a skull full of mush.
Interesting how many of these delicate snowflakes claim they are able to see the subtle shades of criminal perjury in the minor differences between somebody claiming they never were blackout drunk and others swearing that he drank to excess (a 36 year old breath test, perhap?), and in a few years will be trying to explain to the jury that their client only had the gun jammed in his belt and the thirty grams of crack because he had seen them fall on the street and he was holding them for the police.
Sounds like your describing the illegal who murdered a woman in SF and got off.
I stumbled across this TED lecture the other day. I wish I had seen it weeks ago. Anyway, it is really an eye opener about memory, how it works, and how it can easily fail us. (https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=PB2OegI6wvI) (Remove the space for the link to work.)
Go ahead and try Kavanaugh for perjury. Right after the Ford trial conviction of perjury.
“Hey hey! Ho ho! Kavanaugh has got to go!”
