“Underwear Flag”: Yale Writers Launch Lamest Attack on Kavanaugh to Date
With the liberal world having tried and convicted Brett Kavanaugh based on nothing more substantial than the word of the woman he supposedly attacked 30+ years ago – an accusation filled with more holes than a package of Swiss cheese – they are now standing around confused about why Republicans aren’t ushering their Supreme Court nominee off the stage.
And so here we go with Round 2: The Circumstantial Evidence. This is where things get really silly. Kavanaugh’s law clerks were all suspiciously attractive! Kavanaugh’s former boss enjoyed bantering about sex and women with his buddies! Kavanaugh’s conservative opinions are anti-women, so of COURSE he tried to rape one of them! Kavanaugh once used the tired cliché “What happens at ___ stays at ____,” so that pretty much confirms that he’s a sexual predator. And so on.
But the latest story in this genre is maybe the silliest of them all. It comes to us courtesy of the Yale Daily News, which is no doubt home to some of the SJW-est SJWs in the country. How do we know that? Because the writers – Hailey Fuchs and Britton O’Daly – think they are about to blow the Kavanaugh nomination up with this silly piece of business from the mid-1980s.
From the Yale rag:
In an Aug. 30 letter to leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, female college classmates of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ’87 LAW ’90 testified to the judge’s respect for women, praising his character and his support for female athletics at Yale.
But in his first year of college, Kavanaugh joined an organization notorious for disrespecting women: the campus chapter of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.
A photograph that appeared in the Yale Daily News on Jan. 18, 1985, shows Kavanaugh’s fraternity brothers waving a flag woven from women’s underwear as part of a procession of DKE initiates marching across Yale’s campus. Kavanaugh does not appear in the photograph. But the portrait it paints of casual disrespect for women seems noteworthy in light of the explosive allegation by California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her at a high school party almost 40 years ago.
So Kavanaugh’s frat brothers made a flag out of women’s underwear. Are you crying for humanity yet? But Kavanaugh’s not in the picture, nor is it known if he ever participated in this silliness. But that doesn’t matter because the picture paints a portrait of disrespect for women. Oh sorry, “casual” disrespect, which is worse than formal disrespect.
Our favorite line from the story: “Although the flag may seem shocking by today’s standards, the photograph appeared in 1985 under the tongue-in-cheek headline ‘DKE AT PLAY.’”
We’ll just ask flat out: Does this picture SHOCK you?
Pretty sure this says more about “today’s standards” than it does about the DKE fraternity. Certainly, it says absolutely nothing about Brett Kavanaugh or whether he attempted to rape a girl in high school. And since that’s the matter before us currently, the Yale Daily News editors should probably rein in their rabid reporters.
