Stop the presses! WaPo reports that Scalia was with members of a secret society when he died
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
Another sinister all-male secret society possibly linked to Scalia
“When Justice Antonin Scalia died at a West Texas ranch, he was among high-ranking members of an exclusive fraternity for hunters called the International Order of St. Hubertus, an Austrian society that dates to the 1600s.
“After Scalia’s death Feb. 13, the names of the 35 other guests staying at the remote resort, along with details about Scalia’s connection to the hunters, have remained largely unknown. A review of public records shows that some of the men who were with Scalia at the ranch are connected through the International Order of St. Hubertus, whose members gathered at least once before at the same ranch for a celebratory weekend.”
St. Hubertus members wear white robes and hoods and carry large flaming crosses. Well not quite, but pretty darned close:
“Members of the worldwide, male-only society wear dark-green robes emblazoned with a large cross and the motto ‘Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes,’ which means ‘Honoring God by honoring His creatures,’ according to the group’s website.”
“Some hold titles, such as Grand Master, Prior and Knight Grand Officer.
That’s pretty close to “Grand Kleagle,” isn’t it?”
“After Scalia’s death, Poindexter said he had met Scalia at a “sports group” gathering in Washington. The U.S. chapter of the International Order of St. Hubertus lists a District of Columbia suite on M Street NW as its headquarters, although the address is only a mailbox in a UPS store….
“The society’s U.S. chapter launched in 1966 at the famous Bohemian Club in San Francisco, which is associated with the all-male Bohemian Grove, one of the most notorious secret societies in the country.”
