The same establishment elite that views Larry Flint as a free speech hero, that lectured us that we were guilty of censorship if we didn’t want tax money paying for Robert Maplethorpe’s anal horse whip art, that defends flamboyantly obscene gay pride parades down main street, and that wants sex education for third graders is shocked, shocked that members of the same fraternity that Brett Kavanaugh belonged to, back in 1985, took part in pledge hijinks alluding to the 1950s college panty raids.
Diane Herbst, at People magazine, basically quotes a hatchet job from a couple of little left-wing reptiles at the Yale Daily News:
In his first year at Yale, embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh joined the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, which had a culture â€œnotorious for disrespecting women,â€ according to a new report from the Yale Daily News.
Julie Klein, who graduated in 1987 alongside Kavanaugh, described the frat as an â€œanimal house,â€ while another classmate of Kavanaughâ€™s, Jennifer Lew, recalled on the YaleWomen Facebook page how frat brothers would â€œransackâ€ female studentsâ€™ rooms while they attended classes and steal â€œundergarments,â€ reports the Yale Daily News.
On Thursday, the student newspaper published a January, 1985 photo of Kavanaughâ€™s DKE frat brothers holding a flag created with womenâ€™s underwear and bras as they marched across campus. Kavanaugh, reportedly a sophomore member of the frat at the time, does not appear in the image.
Obviously what the DKE pledges were doing in 1985 was some sort of tongue-in-cheek parody of student behavior of the ancient past.
Wikipedia: Panty raid
A panty raid was an American 1950s college prank in which large groups of male students attempted to invade the living quarters of female students and steal their panties (undergarments) as the trophies of a successful raid. The term dates to February 1949.
Panty raids were the first college craze after World War II, following the 1930s crazes of goldfish swallowing or seeing how many students could fit in a phone booth. …
By the 1970s, mixed dorms and less inhibited attitudes to sexual intercourse on campus led to fading of panty raids.
But when lefties find an opportunity to smear an adversary like Judge Kavanaugh with accusations of guilt by association, the libertine left goes all Puritan on us.
