MORE luny liberal hypocrisy



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 woman 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.

At Alito’s confirmation hearings, Kennedy brought up the nominee’s alleged membership in Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP), and said the nominee’s "affiliation with an organization that fought the admission of women into Princeton calls into question his appreciation for the needs for full equality in this count
When asked about the senator’s membership in the Owl Club, Kennedy spokeswoman Laura Capps told the Times there was "absolutely no comparison between the Owl Club and an effort to exclude women from Princeton.
"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.”

Author Peter 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.


Looks like ole Teddy has been swillin the bottle too much, he is having memory lapses

I still wonder why a suspected murder is allowed to be a member of our government.
