“Columbia law faculty and administration were among the most vocal opponents of Kavanaugh’s nomination”

Remember, the left not only pushed the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, they went berserk over them. Joe Biden? Not so much.
Emily Zanotti writes at the Daily Wire:
Columbia Law School Profs Led The Fight Against Brett Kavanaugh. They’re Silent On Their Commencement Speaker, Joe Biden.
Columbia Law School will welcome a high-profile commencement speaker for its virtual law school graduation ceremony this week, former Vice President — and likely 2020 Democratic presidential nominee — Joe Biden. But don’t expect Columbia’s professors and administrators, who led the fight to derail Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination over decades old sexual assault allegations to speak out against Biden, despite his own issues.
Biden will appear on livestream, Wednesday, to address Columbia law school graduates and deliver a “virtual” commencement address — the first absentee commencement in Columbia’s history, according to Law.com.
In a letter to faculty and students announcing Biden’s speech, Columbia law dean Gillian Lester said that “Vice President Joe Biden is synonymous with public service,” and that “his enduring and exemplary career as a leader, lawyer and public servant sets an example for our students as they prepare to begin their own course as legal professionals.”
It likely helps that Biden is the presumptive Democratic nominee and a favorite among Columbia law faculty, at least according to Fox News, which questioned some of the school’s most high-profile professors, many of whom were instrumental in the anti-Kavanaugh “resistance.”
Columbia law faculty and administration were among the most vocal opponents of Kavanaugh’s nomination, leading both in-person protests, and organizing 2,400 other law professors to sign a letter calling Kavanaugh unfit to serve on the nation’s highest court. The group, of course, cited Kavanaugh’s “temperment” when questioned about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when the pair were teenagers as proof positive that Kavanaugh did not deserve his Supreme Court seat.
