On Monday, Harvard University rescinded their acceptance of Kyle Kashuv, a pro-Second Amendment activist who survived last year’s deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, over racist comments he made in high school that emerged on social media in May.

“[The Admissions Committee] takes seriously the qualities of maturity and moral character. After careful consideration, the Committee voted to rescind your admission to Harvard,” the Ivy League school wrote in a letter to Kashuv that he shared on Twitter."

It goes on to wish him well, but we know they don't give a shit about that. All they care about is their reputation and not being dragged through the mud by activits journalist, like Daniel Acker of the Huffington Post who wrote an article on Kashuv in May which went after Harvard for accepting Kashuv in the first place. Why? He's pro gun of course.

His response is note worthy.

“Harvard deciding that someone can’t grow, especially after a life-altering event like the shooting, is deeply concerning. If any institution should understand growth, it’s Harvard, which is looked to as the pinnacle of higher education despite its checkered past,” he wrote. “Throughout its history, Harvard’s faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots, and antisemites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn’t possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution.”

This well written answer shows the kid has some good academic chops. Too bad Harvard is too chicken shit scared to have any real principles.

"Hey, kid, Hypocrisy 'R Us! Nobody does it better. After all, we Manchurianized Obama for big bux and credentialed him for his career! Not to mention all the legacy psychopathic spawn of Wall Street, the Globalists, the Military-Industrial Complex and the Banksters who get in here to learn their shit to dynasticize themselves! Where do you think the character of Patrick Bates came from, Yuck Yuck? Hell, we offered a full scholarship to Kim Jong-Un, and the little twit turned us down!"

Actually, Harvard's principles are rather straight forward ... can this person get a job in management consulting or financial services, make enough bank, and then later, donate back to the mother institution?

Let the philosophers w/o banking aspirations, go to places like Swarthmore or Reed College.

He did refer to black athletes as "nigger jocks" though context is unclear.

Kid should know better.
