Kavanaugh Character Witness Mark Judge in 1983 Yearbook: ‘Certain Women Should Be Struck Regularly, Like Gongs’

Kavanaugh Character Witness Mark Judge in 1983 Yearbook: ‘Certain Women Should Be Struck Regularly, Like Gongs’

In her once-confidential letter Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said there was a witness to the alleged sexual assault and attempted rape by Brett Kavanaugh: Mark Judge, who she said watched and laughed as she struggled in the locked-door room as a 17-year old Kavanaugh almost suffocated her.


Judge's Georgetown Prep 1983 yearbook page has a few astonishing quotes.

For instance, as the Washington Post notes, next to a photo of the high school Mark Judge is this: “Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs."

And Mark Judge has an interesting quote too. “Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs”. Sir Noel Coward pic.twitter.com/X324euqhDJ

It's a quote from playwright Noel Coward.

Read every word of the yearbook.

An example.

One year after alleged sexual assault, Kavanaugh’s friend & alleged accomplice, Mark Judge, placed this quote in their high school yearbook 1983:

"Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs"

Judge allegedly captioned another photo, of several students at the prestigious college prep school: “Do these guys beat their wives?”

There are so many unusual references in the Kavanaugh yearbook: violent words toward women, sexual innuendo & vile slang, names of girls, events, specific places and police departments. A treasure-grove of evidence created by Mark Judge & Kavanaugh

And then, there's this.

"In two memoirs," The Post reports, "Judge depicted his high school as a nest of debauchery where students attended 'masturbation class,' 'lusted after girls' from nearby Catholic schools and drank themselves into stupors at parties. He has since renounced that lifestyle and refashioned himself as a conservative moralist — albeit one who has written about 'the wonderful beauty of uncontrollable male passion.'"
