''The Independent has reported on the infamous Skull and Bones group. However, there is just one problem: the article fails to mention key facts from history about the organization.
The author leaves out plenty of information, and it appears to be just a fluff piece to discredit anyone who questions why there is a windowless building called “The Tomb” at Yale’s courtyard where elitists meet.
Ending the article with:
Mr Bush’s tenure as president of the Zapata Offshore oil company has even led the Skull and Bones to be blamed for the Kennedy assassination, with conspiracy theorists suggesting his business in the Gulf of Mexico gave the order the ideal platform to recruit Cuban revolutionaries to organise the hit on JFK in Dallas, Texas, on 22 November 1963.
The chances of finding out the truth remain slim, however.
Although the author briefly mentions some of the history of Skull and Bones, they leave out a ton of information on the secret society itself.
However, the article seems mainly focused on George H.W. Bush’s involvement with the organization.
“Bush was a member of the elite Skull and Bones society, a group that enrols 15 new undergraduates every spring after selected candidates have been notified with a tap on the shoulder, an event that has taken place every ‘Tap Day’ since 1879,” the author wrote.
Full details of the ritual initiation were omitted, as was any mention that new frat members are referred to as “Neophytes” and Skull and Bones is sometimes referred to as the “Brotherhood of Death. The author does get some credit for mentioning the coffin ritual and confessions of sexual history in detail. Although, that’s where the credit ends because Independent UK failed to mention that Neophytes lay naked inside that coffin and touch each other while confessing their sexual deviances and masturbating. After which they are rewarded with a no-strings-attached gift of $15,000, The Atlantic reported.
“In exchange for swearing allegiance to your fellow Bonesmen, lying in a coffin during an initiatory “rebirthing” ceremony and revealing your entire sexual history in frank detail, the order promises its members lifelong financial stability, effectively buying their silence as to its workings,” The Independent wrote.'
