The Psychology of Dr. Ford

Jack Kemp

The "money quote" from the article that sums up the anger, mostly on the Ford side...

The encounter between Charlie Kirk and an unidentified woman in this video encapsulates the transference concept. Kirk is arguing a point about presumption of innocence, yet the woman says, "People like you are everything that is wrong with everything. You believe in s***ting on every woman in this country"¦ you are embarrassing to humanity, why on earth would you be here and do this to the women of this country?"
She doesn't see a person. She is engaging in transference and sees an abuser, because all men who do not immediately accept Ford's account, or are even on the fence, get an earful of transference vitriol directed at them.

What of the men who take Kavanaugh's side? There is transference here, too. American men place value in their accomplishments -  job, family, parent, husband, career, and reputation. To us, Kavanaugh represents the man who has accomplished great things and risks losing it all  and our identity along with it  to the injustice of being wrongly accused. Look to John Proctor in Arthur Miller's The Crucible.
