Skip to comments.Ted Kennedy's Club Discriminated

When Ted Kennedy tried to chastise Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito for his one-time membership in a group opposed to admitting more women and minorities to Princeton, the pot was calling the kettle black.
Sen. Kennedy still belongs to a social club for Harvard students and alumni that was thrown off campus nearly 20 years ago after refusing to allow female members, an investigation by the Washington Times reveals.
According to the membership directory of the Owl Club, Kennedy updated his personal information as recently as September 7.
Ironically, the Owl Club, long reviled at Harvard as "sexist," was evicted from the campus in 1984 for violating federal anti-discrimination laws authored by Kennedy.
"It's a social club. It's like a fraternity."
But according to the Times, Harvard views organizations such as the Owl Club quite differently from fraternities and sororities, which are considered a form of housing and therefore are not coeducational. Kennedy's hypocritical attack on Alito over his membership in CAP would come as no surprise to readers of the blockbuster new book "Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy" by bestselling author Peter Schweizer.
In his book Schweizer discloses that while Kennedy has fought for the estate tax and spoken out against tax shelters, he has repeatedly benefited from an intricate web of trusts and private foundations that have shielded most of his family's fortune from the IRS.
One Kennedy family trust wasn't even set up in the U.S., but in Fiji.
Schweizer also reveals that while Kennedy has championed the development of alternate energy sources, he opposed a plan to build a wind-power generating facility to provide clean, cheap power to Cape Cod.
The reason: The wind turbines would be positioned off the coast from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis, in one of the family's favorite yachting and sailing areas.
The man is a disgrace. When will the Democrats learn that hitching your wagon to Ted (or getting in his car, for that matter) is just a bad idea all around?
Fired, expelled, bounce, dismiss, shown the door - whatever, the man is a total failure in all things that show character and integrity.
Let's just hope he goes into liver failure REAL soon.
BTW, Schumer is a hypocrite for accusing Alito of belonging to an group which wanted to exclude women. Schumer's a Mason and they do not admit women to full membership.
Schumer is more interested in getting women on abortionists' tables than he is in getting them into his lodge.
WOW! You sure? That is hard for me to believe.
Schumer is a Mason, unless Schumer has left the Masons. This list is from some years back....

If he is he's a PISS POOR example.
According to a Masonic website, Schumer should believe in one God and should be placing his duty to God above all other duties.
"Masons believe that there is one God..."
"Freemasonry is far from indifferent toward religion. ... it expects each member .. to place his Duty to God above all other duties."
Schumer is a good example of a school-yard bully, and not much else.
Thanks for the list. I appreciate it.
You're welcome., moonman.
