Watch and Decide: Was A Yale Frat’s Initiation Stunt A ‘Call For Sexual Violence?’

Fraternities have been behind a lot of ridiculous stunts in the past, but this is a whole new low. 

As part of an initiation practice, the Yale Daily News reports, the school’s chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon had their pledges march through the university’s Old Campus last Wednesday, blindfolded and chanting “No means yes, yes means anal” and “I’m a necrophiliac, I f— dead women.” As offensive as this is on its own, it was seen by some at the school as particularly aggressive because the chanting took place directly outside many freshman female dorms. And because this is 2010, there of course is a YouTube video of the chant.

Yale’s Women’s Center understandably took offense to the chant, writing to the Yale DailyNews that the incident was “hate speech” and “an active call for sexual violence.”

The fraternity’s president, Jordan Forney has since apologized for the chants, calling it a “serious lapse in judgement. According to DKE’s official website all pledging activities have been suspended for the chapter and the executive director of the fraternity will be visiting Yale this weekend to “review this incident and set forth a plan of action for the chapter.”

Members of the Women’s Center and DKE assembled last week to hold a forum on the chant and a letter from Yale College Dean Mary Miller stated that “Any and all disciplinary processes are confidential at Yale, from their inception through their conclusion as required under federal law and University policy.”

So while the matter seems to be just about wrapped up on Yale’s end (as far as what the public will hear about anyway), it seems like it’s just starting to blow up on the Internet. Bloggers and commenters are having a field day with the story–some are defending the pledges (the whole “boys will be boys” argument) while others are calling for the Yale chapter of DKE to be shut down.

And as we’ve seen from the recent Duke student’s Sex Thesis, college controversies can go viral in an instant and take on a life of their own–so this could just be the beginning.

Malaysian flight 370

"All right. Good night." the last words said.

And disappeared the plane then be.

Hundreds on board feared to be dead.

The mediaocres go wild.

Amid a few facts, maybes sprout,

24/7 theories piled,

As breaking news - does the world doubt!

The loved ones' suffering is real.

"News" folks are using this to sell

This tragedy as now big deal,

Competing takes of show and tell.

Whatever words - all was not right.

In act it was "All wrong. Bad night."

GEORGE WASHINGTON, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN,  ALBERT EINSTEIN, AND THOMAS JEFFERSON — WARNING — ABOUT THE ZIONIST JEWS AND THE ATROCITIES TODAY AS THEY PREDICTED http://www.american-integrity.tumblr.com   


ALBERT EINSTEIN AN AMERICAN GENIUS ALSO A JEW / JEWISH RELIGION


Albert Einstein’s 1948 Letter to the New York Times  .

.

Albert Einstein, who was a great humanitarian and peace activist in addition to being one of the greatest scientists of all time. In his landmark letter to the New York Times in 1948, Einstein clearly and candidly explained why the leaders of Israel were not to be trusted and did not deserve money or support from Americans, including American Jews who believe in equality and democracy for all human beings. You can see a scanned image of the Einstein Letter by clicking the hyperlink. The letter was written by Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, Sidney Hook and more than 20 other prominent Jewish intellectuals, to alert Americans and the larger world to the dangers represented by the emergence of racism, fascism, terrorism and religious fanaticism among the Zionist leadership of the newly-formed state of Israel. The letter accurately predicted some of the terrible results we see today. I have annotated the letter with [bracketed comments] to help readers understand how the “Einstein Letter” relates to the present situation.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST MOST CUNNING DANGEROUS TERRORIST ORGANIZATION GROUP IN THE WORLD AND IN OUR TIME.

Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr Begin’s political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.

BOOK SMART BUT DUMB AND STUPID. THROUGHOUT HISTORY THEY STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE BACK DOOR. ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD COULD NOT BUY THE ZIONIST JEWS CLASS / INTEGRITY. It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America." George Washington

NEVER EVER EVER TRUST A COMMUNIST AND A ZIONIST THEY ARE UNETHICAL CONTROL MANIPULATIVE DOMINATION FREAKS THEY ARE ASIATICS NEVER EVER TRUST THEM (COMMUNIST & ZIONIST ) THEY ARE INSECURE DOMINATION FREAKS.
Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American's, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention." Benjamin Franklin

George Washington ( in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.):

"They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America." George Washington


GEORGE WASHINGTON, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AND THOMAS JEFFERSON  WERE NOT AROUND TO SEE THE SAME THING THIS CULT ( THE JEWS ) DID TO SPAIN AND PORTUGAL SAME THING THEY DID STRANGLING EUROPE AND GERMANY’S ECONOMY / HITLERS PUNISHMENT ( Their masters of destroying a governments structural integrity then plundering and destroying that institution ) NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO STRANGLE AMERICA. EVERYWHERE THIS INBREEDING CULT GOES THERE HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT DEATH AND DESTRUCTION. THEY ( the Jews ) DO HAVE A HISTORY THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO ERASE . THAT IS JUST NOT GOING TO HAPPEN WITH THE INTERNET TODAY.

If capitalized, is the name of the historic Italian Fascist political party. Benito Mussolini (Il Duce - “The Leader”) was the Fascist founder and Prime Minister from 1922 to 1943, who built a cult of personality around himself using false media propaganda that he was always right, killed those relatively few unbrainwashed who opposed him, and unified Italy for an incompetent war to retake much of the old Roman empire. Apologists encapsulated their approval of his social control-freakery in the saying, “Il Duce made the trains run on time”. / COMMUNISM

A pending Iran-Israel war might soon be about to make the Crimea problem look mild. Here's why: HAARETZ --" Israeli Defense minister says the United States has projected weakness the world over, from China through the Mideast to Ukraine. "Based on his evaluation that the United States isn’t going to do anything to frustrate the Iranian nuclear program, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday he’s changed his mind and now leans toward supporting unilateral Israeli action against Iran" according to the Israeli newspaper.
