(Was Brett Kavanaugh a Catholic werewolf in high school? Only this NBC News investigation can say.)
Just in case you missed the heavy doses of anti-Catholic bigotry in the Brett Kavanaugh smear campaign, NBC News would like to make them a little more overt.
Keg-parties and assaults: Women from Catholic high schools in Washington area break ‘culture of silence’
I was unaware that keg-parties were a uniquely Catholic school tradition. Apparently no other schools have those.
Also it’s refreshing to see the media go full Reefer Madness on high school drinking. “Oh my, Martha. They had keg parties!”
On the one hand, the left celebrates every form of teenage misbehavior. On the other hand, it suddenly pivots to pearl clutching about high school keg parties as the worst form of degeneracy known to man.
A dozen women who attended Catholic and private prep schools in the Montgomery County area in the 1980s spoke to NBC News this week, seven of them on the record. The women — most of whom signed an open letter saying they believed Ford’s allegation, and all but two of whom did not know her or Kavanaugh personally — shared their memories of kegs, bonfires and unsupervised beach houses where heavy drinking fueled sexually inappropriate comments and behavior and attacks that were never spoken of afterward.
1. Only 2 of these women know anyone involved in this case
2. Underage drinking apparently fuels sexually inappropriate comments among high schoolers
3. Catholic and private prep schools? So why headline this as Catholic?
The women said they were warned by other girls about the aggression of boys from neighboring Catholic schools, particularly Georgetown Preparatory School, which Kavanaugh attended. Raised from an early age in their moneyed, Catholic community to remain chaste, the women said they believed anything that compromised that chastity was their fault — even if they were forced.
Kavanaugh went to Georgetown Prep. These girls were warned about boys from Georgetown Prep. Clearly he’s unfit.
While the article keeps pushing the claim that Georgetown boys were particularly dangerous, not a single of its stories actually specifically states that an assault was committed by a Georgetown boy.
Also it wouldn’t be a garbage NBC News Kavanaugh smear without a belated correction.
CLARIFICATION (Sept. 27, 2018, 7:45 p.m.): In an earlier version of this article, Grace, a Stone Ridge graduate, said that one boy had assaulted her during Beach Week and another tried to assault her. After the article was published, Grace said she had misspoken and that the first boy had been “overly physically aggressive” but did not assault her. Her comments have been changed to reflect her new account
NBC News. It’s not fake news. It one day aspires to be fake news.
