KAVANAUGH AND DKE - GAY FRAT BOYS WHO HARASS WOMEN

Kavanaugh has been documented as a heavy drinker during high school. This didn't change when he got to Yale for college. At Yale he joined the fraternity DKE, who were known as the most drunk, asshole Frat on all of Yale's campus. DKE is supposed to be pronounced like DICK. The joke is that no-one in the DKE has ever had a dick. They are all illuminati Jews.

Five American Presidents, including the Yale alumni and Skull and Bones Secret Society members George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, belonged to DKE. Illuminait Jew Gerald Ford also belonged to DKE. DKE is an illuminati only Frat for gay jews who want to harass women so they can deny they are gay. The first letter in the DKE name as written is greek is a TRIANGLE. The second letter K indicates KING. The DKE Frat thinks of themselves as the Kings of the Illuminati Jews.



The DKE Frat was set up to try and be a cover for gay sex. No one assumes loud mouth drunks who joke about raping women all the time could be gay. Macho bullshit is a perfect cover for being gay. A frat is a perfect set up for gay orgies. While the DKE frat liked to abuse women and beat them, they could only rape with strap-ons. What the DKE frat really liked was gay men to fuck them. DKE's motto is "Friends From The Heart, Forever" which sounds very gay when you think about it.



This picture of the DKE Frat is from the year that Kavanuagh joined. You can clearly see two gay Frat members holding each other in a loving embrace in the bottom left. The one guy giving the hug looks extremely gay. They look like they are in love with each other. The other side of the image has another pair of young men hugging each other which also gives off a gay subtext. That was and is the DKE Frat - a place for guys to find guy sex under the cover of an inebriated fraternity.

DKE, usually pronounced as a single syllable, rhyming with “reek,” was founded at Yale in 1844. It is one of the oldest fraternities in the nation, with chapters on more than fifty college campuses. Since Kavanaugh’s time at Yale (where he also belonged to an all-male secret society, Truth and Courage, which was popularly known as Tit and Clit), the prevalence of Greek life on the campus has declined, but DKE, sometimes described as the “white football frat,” has maintained a reputation for aggressively loutish antics. “When we had a mixer with them, they didn’t even want to talk to us,” a classmate who is in a sorority told me recently. “They just wanted to pour beers on each other’s heads.”

In 2011, the DKE fraternity was banned from Yale for five years after videos surfaced of DKE recruits chanting in front of the University Women’s Center: “No means yes, yes means anal.” DKE members were also recorded saying "Fucking sluts!" and "I fuck dead women and fill them with my semen."

Earlier this year, the Yale Daily News and Business Insider reported sexual assault allegations against more than half a dozen DKE members. One of the accused was a former president of the fraternity, who, in 2016, told the student paper that DKE members of hi generation had “played an important part in the cultural shift” that had occurred since the 2010 incident. (He was eventually expelled from the fraternity and suspended from Yale, for “penetration without consent”; in a statement to the Yale Daily News at the time, he said of the victim, “Though I deny many of the claims made, I respect this person and hope that she can find the same peace that I hope to find.”) Further investigation by the Daily News uncovered eight more women who alleged sexual misconduct by DKE brothers between 2014 and 2017. (None of these women filed formal Title IX complaints.)



The culture at DKE was just the most extremely sexist part of Yale University. When Brett Kavanaugh arrived at Yale University in 1983, there were reminders all over campus that until just 15 years earlier, women weren’t even allowed to attend the school.

In many buildings, women had to trek to the top floor or the basement to find a bathroom they could use, recalled Sandra Luckow, a filmmaker who graduated in 1987. Early on, female students were housed on the top floors of the dorms, which led men to joke years later: “Yale, with the tradition of women on top.” During the summer after Luckow’s freshman year, she recalled, an elderly male alumnus declared during the question-and-answer part of a reunion event that the decision to admit female students had marked the downfall of the institution.

Over three decades later, the culture at Yale has come under public scrutiny after multiple women have accused Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court nominee, of sexual assault. One alleged victim, Deborah Ramirez, told lawmakers that Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face, forcing her to touch it, during his freshman year at the prestigious university. Kavanaugh’s mostly Republican backers have tried to cast doubt on Ramirez’s allegations, arguing that if such an incident really did occur, she would have reported it at the time.

But former students who overlapped with Kavanaugh at Yale describe the university in the 1980s as a place where being a female student still felt like a privilege, not a right; where heavy drinking was commonplace; where women felt they were expected to put up with bad behavior from men; and where certain privileged groups of men seemed able to get away with anything.

It felt like “we were only here by the graces of men,” said Luckow, who now teaches film at the university. “There was this sense that we were responsible for what men did to us.”

Faced with allegations of drunken sexual assault, Kavanaugh has depicted himself as a studious, celibate kid who shied away from partying. “I went to an all-boys Catholic high school, where I was focused on academics and athletics, going to church every Sunday and friendship with my fellow classmates and friendship with girls from the local all-girls Catholic schools,” Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News this week. “I did not have sexual intercourse, or anything close to sexual intercourse, in high school or for many years thereafter.” But several of Kavanaugh’s former classmates at Yale describe him and his fraternity brothers as heavy drinkers who were aggressive toward women when drunk.



In his second year at Yale, Kavanaugh joined Delta Kappa Epsilon, a fraternity known on campus for mistreating women. Greek life was only beginning to make a comeback at the university at that time, and joining a fraternity was an unusual move. Pledging DKE was “a step out of the mainstream,” said one woman who graduated in 1985 and requested anonymity to speak frankly about her experiences at Yale. “The guys from DKE were pigs. Horrible men. This is the sort of people [with whom] he elected to surround himself,” she said, referring to Kavanaugh.

Of the dozens of former Yale students HuffPost spoke with, almost all said DKE brothers in those years were known as heavy drinkers who often degraded women and themselves while partying — especially during pledging and hazing rituals.

Yearbook photos of DKE brothers taken while Kavanaugh was an undergrad, and later while he attended Yale Law School, show students posing pantsless around a keg, holding cups of beer. In a photo taken in 1988, the year after Kavanaugh graduated, a student’s testicles are clearly visible. In a 1991 photo, one student is holding what appears to be a rifle. HuffPost obtained DKE yearbook photos taken between 1984 and 1991 — except for 1987, Kavanaugh’s senior year, when the fraternity’s photo was absent from the yearbook. It’s not clear whether Kavanaugh himself appears in any of the photos.

The year Kavanaugh joined DKE, two of his fraternity brothers marched through campus holding a flag made of women’s underwear. A fraternity member claimed the underwear was obtained ”consensually,” but a female classmate of Kavanaugh’s said DKE brothers would ransack underwear from women’s rooms.

Several female Yale alumnae who spoke to HuffPost said they went out of their way to avoid DKE parties because of the fraternity’s reputation for mistreating women. Participants in a “Take Back the Night” march to raise awareness of sexual assault were hesitant to walk by the DKE house because they worried they’d get hassled, said Heather Gold, who was active in anti-rape organizing at Yale in the 1980s.

There was a growing awareness of the threat of sexual assault in New Haven, Connecticut, in the 1980s. “It became obvious that women at Yale were worried about rape and that rape was an aspect of university life,” Beth Morrow, class of 1987, wrote in an essay in that year’s yearbook.

But it was still nearly unheard of for women to speak out about sexual abuse, female graduates said. There was the fear of being labeled a slut, of not being believed, and of being retraumatized in an insular community where it was hard for victims to avoid their assailants, Gold said.

There also weren’t many resources available to women on campus. The university’s Women’s Center was perceived by most students as a place for militant feminists or lesbians — both of which were alienating labels at the time, two alumnae recalled. The culture of silence contributed to a system that allowed powerful men to go unpunished for abusing women.
