Is Jack Montague a Rapist?

Posted on | March 4, 2016 | 28 Comments


The senior captain of Yale University’s basketball team, Jack Montague was averaging 9.7 points per game before he left school last month for reasons that were not explained at the time. Yale Daily News reports:

Two days after signs calling on the Yale men’s basketball team to “stop supporting a rapist” first appeared on campus, a new set of posters expressing a similar message appeared Wednesday morning in the Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona lecture hall.
All of this week’s posters referred to the recent controversy surrounding the basketball team’s show of support for former captain Jack Montague ’16, who was withdrawn from the University on Feb. 10 for reasons the team and University have not specified.
At last Friday’s Yale–Harvard basketball game, the team came out for warmups wearing T-shirts which had Montague’s jersey number and nickname, “Gucci,” on the back and “Yale,” spelled backwards with inverted letters, on the front. Monday’s posters featured an image of the team wearing the shirts.
By 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, new posters were hung on two billboards just outside the lecture hall and placed on chairs inside the hall. A handwritten note chalked on the classroom’s blackboard read “Rape culture is standing by your teammate and silencing Yale’s victims of sexual assault.”

Who is “silencing” whom?

The Yale Women’s Center wrote a lengthy status on Facebook. Their claims have not been substantiated.
The post read: ‘In light of recent events, The Yale Women’s Center would like to express its sentiments on the Yale that we want to be a part of.
‘Our Yale is a place of respect and a home to all. It is a Yale in which students can feel comfortable and forge meaningful relationships on the basis of mutual understanding and consent.
‘We at the Women’s Center believe in this vision, and therefore have high expectations for the Yale administration to promote a culture of respect.
‘Bearing this in mind, we wish to comment on the current campus conversation in hopes that we can create an atmosphere of respect and understanding during this time of healing. We recognize that FERPA and Yale policy prohibit Yale from commenting on the exact nature of the incident.
‘Though the silence is deeply frustrating to us and surely to many of you, Yale’s actions speak much louder than its words. It appears that Yale has expelled a high-profile member of a sports team in the midst of a pivotal moment in the season on the basis of sexual violence.
‘While we can only speculate about these occurrences, we can comfortably say that, should all of this be true, this is progress.
‘It is progress both in the sense that a survivor felt that coming forward was a viable option for them and that they got the decisive outcome that they fought for.’

“Progress” = getting the basketball team captain expelled. The federal law FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) means that Yale officials cannot discuss the reasons for Montague’s expulsion. In the absence of details, it would be useless to speculate what happened, except that somebody failed to warn Jack Montague:


Feminists have incited a climate of anti-male hatred on American college campuses. Jessica Valenti has declared that the feminist movement’s goal is to “redefine rape” to make it easier to expel male students, effectively criminalizing all heterosexual activity on campus. Too bad Jack Montague didn’t read my blog. In November, three months before the captain of the Yale basketball team was expelled and branded a perpetrator of “sexual violence,” I explained what feminist “progress” means:

The fate of “John Doe” at Brown University — banned from campus for making out with a girl he met at a party — illustrates the extreme danger male students face in an academic environment where feminists have ginned up a frantic hysteria of hatred. Because the number of actual rapes does not justify their claim that 1-in-5 college women are victims of sexual assault, officials are trying to make up for the “Rape Shortage” by inciting false accusations.
At Washington and Lee University, an official reportedly told female students that “regret equals rape.” At Ohio State University, you are guilty of sexual assault unless you and your partner agree why you are engaging in sexual activity. At Harvard University, there were six false rape accusations in 2014. The organizer of a “Summit on Sexual Assault” conference at Darmouth College suggested male students should be expelled as soon as they are accused.

Warn your sons, America: Never talk to a college girl.

    “we can comfortably say that, should all of this be true, this is progress” -Yale Women’s Center

    The only ‘truth’ is that an accusation was made and that’s good enough for us. Because we’re shameless feminists desperate to show the world we can ruin men on a whim.

    In this day and age, “rape” has the same definition as “racism.” They mean whatever you want or need them to mean so you can pretend to be the victim and put down your enemies. They’re the modern day equivalent of “witch!”

    Do you think it is coincidence that a lot of this feminism “rape” hysteria started in New England?

    Nor is it coincidence that the 60s saw the birth of today’s “everything is racist” movement and the feminist “kill babies” movement. 1969 saw the peak of humanity with the Apollo 11 mission, and it’s all been downhill ever since.

    Deleted from the original feminist statement regarding Jack’s expulsion, rapist labeling and life ruination by accusation on a whim:

    “While we can only speculate about these occurrences, we can comfortably say that, should all of this be true, this is progress. It is progress both in the sense that a survivor felt that coming forward was a viable option for them and that they got the decisive outcome that they fought for.”

    Because, they say:

    Last night, the Women’s Center board released a statement aimed at channeling an existing campus conversation into productive discourse on sexual respect in our community. Unfortunately, parts of our original statement have been taken out of context by media outlets, which obstructs the positive conversation we hope to have. Thus, we are releasing an edited statement that centers on our core message.

    “discourse on sexual respect” means fuck me right or else

    Sadly, refusing to talk to a college girl if she decides you should talk to her is probably also some form of disrespect and therefore, in the SJW’s eyes “rape”. College boys need to either attend a single sex institution (although I’m not sure that any male-only ones are left) or else online.

    I suspect that driving men away from higher education is part of the rabid feminists’/SJWs’ ultimate goal.

    Everytime I worry about whether I’ve been a good parent, I look at my girls laughing at SJWs and figure I got at least part of it right.

    Has Mr Montague been charged with a crime? Has anyone reported this (speculated) rape or other assault to the police?

    Let us suppose, strictly for the sake of argument, that the event which led to Mr Montague’s dismissal was a sexual assault. Unless such assault is reported to law enforcement, the wonderful feminists of Yale have enabled a rapist to get off with simply being expelled — surely not a matter to be taken lightly — but still free and out on the street. If he is an actual rapist, now that he’s no longer in college, the women who constitute his next potential victims would be convenient store workers and laundresses and the like, but, to the college feminists, those women don’t matter anyway.

    Our esteemed host concluded:

    Warn your sons, America: Never talk to a college girl.

    Alas! That, I’m afraid, is a prescription for having our sons become QUGs, or Queers Until Graduation. Most college-aged guys are:

    1 – Very interested in sex; and
    2 – Horny

    and they aren’t going to take the solid advice to be solitary and celibate. I know that I sure didn’t, and I’ve heard rumors that our esteemed host might have been a bit morally lax in his earlier life.

    So, to whom do our college student sons — not that I have any — talk if they cannot have verbal intercourse with college girls? That leaves them talking almost exclusively to other college guys, and whilst the left would be most happy if all of the male college students took a walk on the Wilde side, that would not be good for our society.

    Maybe they could go meet some nice girls at church, and marry one, on account of, to paraphrase the Apostle Paul “if you pervs can’t control your lust, you need to get married.”

    You sons should either:
    A. Date off campus, never associating with female students at their own school;
    B. Don’t go to college, because you can’t get expelled if you never enroll.

    Indeed. In the 1970s, it was even possible to do more than talk. But we are old men, and times have changed, and feminist “progress” means that heterosexuality is now regarded as a hate crime.

    I’m thinking that option B isn’t that good. As for option A, well, that isn’t that great, either: non-students have a tendency to resent those able to go to college, and they have totally different lifestyles.

    But there is a third option: figure out who the right girls are. It really isn’t that difficult: they’re the ones who are serious students, the ones who aren’t going out and getting drunk or stoned every weekend, and who aren’t goth or super-slutty.

    Does this mean that if a guy didn’t enjoy a sexual tryst with a college girl or if he had too much to drink she raped him? Oh sorry, I forgot things only go one way.

    Meanwhile, on the rest of the planet, actual rape – you know the forceful violent unwanted PIV and PIA variety (along with many other variants) – barely rates a mention.

    This all stems from Obama admin. they’re the ones throwing the book at University’s that don’t expel every man accused by a women for any sexual impropriety, they sued Yale last year.

    The most important reason we need a Republican President is to clean out every department head and most of the personal. Military every General that prospered under Obama in the Military, gone. Every department State , Education, etc

    Most importantly fire every lawyer in the Justice Dep, including Lynch, which is legal. Clinton first week in office fired every lawyer under Bush Sr in DOJ, Bush jr didn’t and paid for it… And importantly get rid of the civil rights personal top to bottom .. A bunch crazy left wing progressives.
