We Believe All Women. Do You?

Earlier today, after reports surfaced of a private meeting between Justin Fairfax and other Democrats in which Fairfax called the woman making sexual assault allegations against him a “f**king bitch,” his accuser came forward. Her name is Dr. Vanessa Tyson. She shared her account. It’s disturbing.
It should be obvious based on the details of that account that Democrats unanimously support Dr. Tyson and believe that Justin Fairfax should resign, just as we believed Governor Northam should resign within 24 hours of the blackface yearbook photo surfacing. However, Republicans only read the takes and tweets of other Republicans, so apparently, they’re not hearing the many, many Democrats who are demanding Fairfax resign (to be fair, Democrats are the same way).
Not that it is not apparent, but it definitely needs to be said: We believe Dr. Tyson. We believe that Justin Fairfax should resign immediately. We also believe that the Governor and Attorney General should do the same.
The question is: Do Republicans actually believe that Justin Fairfax should step aside, or are they just saying that because he’s a Democrat?
#Democrats..when Christine Ford came out against Judge Kavanaugh with her 'unsubstantiated' BS the Dem/MSM/Hollytards were of the opinion that if she said it happened, then it happened, but none of these upstanding stalwarts has come out in support of Vanessa Tyson.— Bulldogs Rule (@bulldogs1951) February 6, 2019
We support Dr. Tyson.
Where is your outrage and support for Vanessa Tyson? You preach we must believe all women. Oh, that’s right, her accusation of sexual assault is against a Democrat. #vademscrash— Sue Raynes (@sueraynes3) February 6, 2019
Regardless of who the accusation is against, we believe Dr. Tyson. Can we depend on your support to call for the resignation of a Republican politician in the same position?
What do Democrats do with this? Treat Fairfax the same way they treated Kavanaugh? Do they all believe Vanessa Tyson? Should he step down without evidence? I think I know the answer…they do nothing. #slipperyslope https://t.co/S3BuRmfu1l— DBol (@drbeaul98512) February 6, 2019
We believe that Fairfax should resign. Would you join us in supporting the resignation of all politicians — regardless of political affiliation — in similar disturbing circumstances?
Do you believe Vanessa Tyson? Do you believe the survivor of sexual assault at the hands of Lt. Gov Faifax? Or are you just about #hypocrite ? I guess Democrats have as free pass to sexually assault women??— Koment Bime (@Avg_Merican) February 6, 2019
Fairfax should resign, regardless of political party. No one should get a free pass where it concerns sexual assault.
I believe Vanessa Tyson….Lt. Governor Fairfax is guilty just because she said so……isn't that what Democrats said about Justice Cavanaugh? What goes around comes around…Dem are hypocrites— mark the coach (@markthecoach) February 6, 2019
Democrats support Dr. Tyson. We believe that Fairfax should resign. We also believe that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination should have been withdrawn. Will you support us in asking him to step down?
If Democrats believe what they say and every woman should be believed than Vanessa Tyson needs to be heard. The story she has described is a vicious rape. Justin Fairfax cannot hide from it. You wanted to prevent a Supreme Court Justice for allegedly holding someone on a bed.— Carmine Sabia (@CarmineSabia) February 6, 2019
Agreed. Tyson absolutely deserves to be heard, to the extent she wants to be heard beyond the statement she released. Also, Kavanaugh drunkenly tried to rape Dr. Ford, which we know because we listened and believed Dr. Ford. Did you?
Still no response on Vanessa Tyson. Do you think she is courageous like Christine Ford? You were very outspoken on how brave she was for coming forward. Is it because Justin Fairfax is a democrat that you've remained silent?— 🐝Beth💔 (@ElizBeeHaven007) February 6, 2019
We believe Tyson, and we admire her bravery in stepping forward. We have demanded Northam resign. We are also demanding that Fairfax do the same. We also believe the many accusers of President Trump. Do you?
If I was Vanessa Tyson, I would want to know why Democrats find a white woman more credible than a black woman. Dems jumped behind Christine Ford, who couldn't remember shit. Why don’t they believe her—she has dates, times, specific memories and Fairfax admitted they had sex.— Megan Matthews (@megansmatthews) February 6, 2019
We find Dr. Tyson every bit as credible as Dr. Ford, who had a clear recollection of the salient details. We believe Dr. Tyson just as we believed Dr. Ford, regardless of the political party of the abuser.
Soooo Democrats no longer #BelieveAllWomen What about Vanessa Tyson??? Justin Fairfax is believable. Hmmmm double standard, ya think??— Bird (@eileenbirdsong) February 6, 2019
Nope. We still #BelieveAllWomen. That includes Vanessa Tyson. Do you? Sixteen women accused President Trump of sexual harassment. Do you believe them, as we do?
Vanessa Tyson is a fellow Democrat of Fairfax. *Key difference. https://t.co/0caJZCWL45— Liz 🇺🇸 (@NurseLiz3) February 5, 2019
No difference whatsoever. We believe Dr. Tyson. Did you believe Dr. Ford?
Justin Fairfax's defense to Vanessa Tyson's sexual assault accusation is that the WaPo refused to run the story.— Red Nation Rising (@RedNationRising) February 4, 2019
I guess we’re not believing women anymore. Weird how this standard suddenly doesn’t apply when Democrats are accused… #MeToo
Justin Fairfax does not speak for the Democratic Party. He speaks for himself. We believe women.
