Two Accusations, Very Much The Same, Yet Treated Differently
Unless you are blind, have no TV, you most likely will have not missed the newest circus on TV, the accusations of Kavanaugh, the lectures from Senators telling us his accuser has to be believed, even though the accuser remembers hardly a thing, the ones she names as witnesses deny anything happened. On the other hand, there is a very credible accusation Against Ellison, this gets no news, the press demonizes the woman making the accusation, they ignore it and only focus on Kavanaugh, why is that?
We have heard from a certain Hawaii Senator that we are obligated to listen to a woman’s accusation, but she has not given the same consideration to Ellison’s accuser, why is that?
Senator Mazie Hirono, does this also apply to Ellison’s accuser? And why would men shut up and step up? You mean we should not ask questions, find the allegations when nothing can be remembered, even the therapist notes don’t agree with her accusations, are not very credible? Why would we ever not ask questions, or is this now how things go, well unless it is against a Democrat, you know, like Ellison, then you say nothing and shame his accuser, right?

Peter Doau you are upset that an accuser of Kavanaugh will be attacked, smeared, and demonized, but I ask, where is your statement about Ellison’s accuser? Wait, you have said nothing, instead, by your silence, you stick up for him at her expense, you Peter Doau are a hypocrite. Do you see how this works? My father used to tell me, be careful about pointing your finger at someone, there are always three pointing right back at you, you may wish to take that advice.
Monahan went to reiterate that her story has nothing to do with politics. “I have nothing to prove to anyone, I simply shared my story. People can believe it or not. I don’t need anyone to affirm my humanity, I affirmed it,” she wrote in another tweet.
“The fact that both parties only care if it scores political points is hypocritical,” she added. “Do you think a person who has dealt with any form of abuse by politicians is thinking about politics? No, we & our families are trying to heal.”

In the end we have glaring examples of a case of two parties, while it screams about the case against a conservative judge who has an accuser who has no one supporting her, now is demanding a FBI investigation or she will not testify, the reason for this is plain, she knows her story is full of holes, she does not want to come and have it exposed.
The other case you have witnesses, a videotape of this assault, this is ignored, the very people telling us we have to believe Kavanaugh’s accuser now are refusing to do the same to Ellison’s, why is that?
Please excuse the language, but this is the son’s post on Facebook, I would post a link, sadly Facebook, because I will not change my posts to appease them have banned me from their social network.
Please read, if you care about my mother please share.
I love you momma, you wont have to stand alone

My name is Austin Monahan and I am writing this letter on behalf of me and my brother.
My brother and I watched our mom come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship with Keith Ellison. For several months we knew something wasn’t right and couldn’t figure it out. When we asked our mom if everything was ok, she told us she was dealing with some stress and would be ok.
In the middle of 2017, I was using my moms computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a “fucking bitch” and telling her to get the fuck out of his house. The messages I found, were mixed with him consistently telling my mom he wanted her back, he missed her, he knew he fucked up and we wished he could do things different, he would victim shaming, bully her, and threaten her if she went public. I text him and told him I know what you did to my mama and a few other things.
I met up with my mom that night and asked her what happened. She said nothing happened until I told her I saw a video and hell of a lot of messages saying something different. She finally talked. My brother and I were so angry and hurt for our mom. We were ready to go public but our mom begged us not to and she along with others convinced us it wasn’t in our moms best interest.
I saw message after message through out all that time, where my mom was telling him she wasn’t going back to him but still saw his humanity and offered restorative justice. I honestly don’t see how she would offer him that, but thats her choice.
Sitting all this time, watching what our mom went through and not being able to say or do anything was hard as hell. None of you know the hell our family has gone through. I don’t think half of you would even care. We watched her so-called political friends stand by say or do nothing. People had an idea what happened and never reached out to my mom. The same people who are posting about social justice are ready to smear my mom, protect a person who abused her and broke the law. You think we give a shit about a politics when we saw what our mom went through? She may not matter to none of you, but she is our mom, our kids grandmother and she is actually someone. There is a lot more he has done to my mom and others that we saw in the text but our mom can decide if and when she wants to tell the world that part.
Whether we saw the video or read all those messages, we still would have believed her if she had told us. #Ibelieveher
My mom has always tried to protect me and my brother. She doesn’t have to protect us anymore and we aren’t letting her stand alone. When we found out our mom was planning on sharing her story, that is all we needed to hear for us to share ours and stand with our mom. You want to smear someone, try to lie about a person who didn’t do shit to deserve the ongoing emotional, physical abuse, smear me and my brother.
I use to believe the Democrats were the ones who would stand by a person who went through this kind of abuse, now I know both Democrats and Republicans could care less when it comes to violence toward women and girls.
I have learned a lot about how patriarchy has shaped me as a 25 year old through all this. I just became a father and I am working on how patriarchy influenced thoughts ad decisions I have made as a young man so I can teach my son better. I am starting today by standing with my mom, my sons grandma. It is not just on women and girls to speak out, it is on men to do some of the emotional work. I’m not here to prove shit to anyone, I’m just stating facts. You can take it or leave it.
Mom, I am sure you are getting contacted about this post. Just know we love you and we are standing by you.
