Just like many other supporters of JD (as a victim of narcissistic abuse), I've been trying to wrap my head around why legacy media and certain activist groups/advocacy groups are tripling down on this Depp vs Heard case. Why are they still supporting a proven liar, abuser, perjurer and opportunist to such a degree that it seems to fly in the face of all the evidence presented in court, or available to everyone. How can they turn a blind eye to only Amber having been arrested for DV. Or the audio tapes where she abuses him or admits to abuse. Or the fact that many women have either testified as witnesses against AH, or in support of JD. Why ignore the fact that Amber was exposed again and again as a liar under oath.

Why are they ignoring the millions who watched the court case live and came to their own conclusions (based on knowledge and first hand experience), who felt happy and vindicated by this verdict. The thousands of DV, SA and IPV survivors who saw their abuser in AMBER and themselves in JOHNNY.

Why are they choosing this hill to die on? Why are they trying to make Amber Heard a martyr for a gender-based culture war, when she is so obviously and verifiably a violent vindictive person who is refusing to stop victimizing her ex-husband via the media/the courts etc. She is such a terrible standard bearer for their ideological crusade. Or their pathway to funding. Or profitable reporting.

It didn't make logical sense to me.

Then someone on twitter pointed out the obvious and it all clicked. I feel like a fool for not seeing it sooner.

It's NOT about Amber at all. It's not about championing her, nor championing survivors of domestic violence. It was never about Amber.

It's about using JOHNNY DEPP as the sacrificial lamb. Because he's one of the most famous and beloved men on the planet. They needed to use his high profile to keep their "war" relevant. They wanted to take down a big name, to score a huge win for MeToo and other causes which rely on gender bias to keep stoking outrage, donations, govt funding, media coverage etc.

They needed a villain who they could expose as a wolf in sheep's clothing. They decided on JD. And since they've committed to that, they can't back down, they can't admit that this whole thing is actually about money, fame, social clout on social media. It's about lobbying for policy and legislation. It's about self interest cloaked as collective good.

The Amicus briefs show just how little they actually care for the law, for the individual parties, for the actual facts of the case. They spell it out for you: they want to sent a societal message, damn whether JD is the real victim here, trying to seek relief from actual defamation. They want to be able to talk about the salacious details (commentators?! they care more about the pundits?!) without legal repercussion. They want to be allowed to have trials by media/public opinion with no consequence and to completely ignore due process. They want women to be able to make serious, career ending allegations in the media and not have to be challenged over it.

Several Lawtubers have pointed out that their arguments are simply wrong. Reporting abuse to law enforcement or the courts is *legally protected* already. It's extremely disingenuous to claim otherwise. Defamation is about public accusations made in the social arena. It's about taking claims to the media, rather than pursuing legal remedies for one's plight. How can they argue it's wrong to legally defend oneself from false accusations through the courts, when faced with PR smear campaigns. That is what the defamation laws are expressly designed to do! Give remedy when one's reputation is damaged by malicious lies/reckless disregard to the truth.
