A Harvard scholar seems to have a tenuous relationship with the truth, comparing Israel to ISIS and suggesting Palestinian kids get shot simply for living and going to school.
Rami Khouri is a Middle East Initiative senior fellow for Harvard’s Belfer Center. He has suggested that South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham “paying allegiance to Israel mirrors Islamist radicals paying allegiance to ISIS.”
He also said “in the eyes of Zionism, Palestinian kids are VERY provocative, simply by living & going to school in Palestine; so they get shot.” Israelis shoot Palestinian kids just for living and going to school? Furthermore, the scholar neglected to mention that Palestinian parents sometimes encourage their kids to throw rocks at Israeli soldiers.
Khouri has also made conflicting statements about Israel’s legitimacy, saying it’s important to distinguish between pre-1967 and post-1967 Israel just three days after saying “Israeli colonialists” had seven decades of US support. So which is it? Israel was legitimate pre-1967 or never legitimate — which Khouri insinuates when he states that Israelis have been colonizers since the Jewish State’s founding in 1948.
Not surprisingly, the scholar also has very strong opinions about how President Trump vowed to eradicate terrorism. He thinks Trump is pandering to “Islamophobes” and “racists” with his focus on terrorism.
Campus Unmasked reached out to Khouri for comment, but received none in time for press. But we understand; formulating propaganda is very time-consuming work.
Harvard Dumps Kyle Kashuv After N-Word Remarks
Whereas, after the Parkland massacre, Kyle Kashuv’s classmates David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez pushed for gun control, Kyle advocated for the removal of gun-free zones, background checks, and has called out the Broward County deputy who didn’t enter the school during the shooting. This made him really popular with conservatives like Ben Shapiro.
Kyle was ranked second in his Parkland class and got a 1550 on the SAT, according to The Daily Wire, and so got accepted to Harvard on what looked to be academic merit. But his activism made him a target and haters had a compelling reason to ask Harvard to rescind his admission after the release of a Google Doc between Kyle and other Parkland classmates in which Kyle said the n-word multiple times.
Kyle put out a statement saying he’s “embarrassed” by the remarks on the document, claiming that he and his fellow classmates were “using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible.”
Harvard sent Kyle a letter asking for a written explanation and Kyle responded with a similar note, suggesting that he had changed since he wrote those comments before the shooting. Harvard replied, saying that while the admissions committee “appreciated [his] candor,” it also “takes seriously the qualities of maturity and moral character.” The school proceeded to rescind Kyle’s admission offer.
Now, there are a few factors at play here. First of all, keep in mind that Kyle’s biggest defender, Shapiro, hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to defending speech: he agreed that ABC was right to fire Roseanne Barr and apparently told journalist Denise McAllister that she wasn’t welcome to write anymore at the Daily Wire after she made some remarks that were anti-gay, though nothing as taboo as the n-word. Back to Kyle, though, would it have made a difference if Kyle were pro-gun control instead of anti-gun control? I’m not so sure. Sure, the left wanted him booted, but Laura Loomer was also a big proponent for Harvard to pull its offer. Also, remember that Harvard rescinded its offers to at least ten students a couple years ago after the revelation that they had shared offensive memes in a private Facebook group.
There was no indication that those students were conservative or liberal, nor was there any massive campaign to get them booted. But Harvard’s decision was political in both that case and Kyle’s in the sense that it limits the free speech of prospective students, even if that’s freedom to say some pretty awful things. And don’t forget that the school now punishes students who join single-gender groups like frats or sororities.
Al Gore Uses Harvard Graduation Speech To Slam Trump
After the Mueller report, some lefties are still not letting the whole Trump-Russia collusion fantasy die. One of them seems to be former vice president Al Gore, who spoke at Harvard’s commencement and suggested that President Trump is above the law, according to Campus Reform.
“Supporters of authoritarianism define loyalty to America’s core principles as treason against its new would-be sovereign,” said Gore. “This explains the appeal to would-be autocrats of multiple bromances with extreme authoritarians, at least one of whom, in our current time, has been allowed to sink his teeth into America’s democratic electoral process and play with it like a chew toy.”
OK so Gore was probably pretty proud at coming up with that metaphor, but how accurate is it really? Sure, you had the Russian troll farm accounts on social media, but 1) not all of the info put out by those accounts was false and 2) it really boils down to whether consumers or Big Tech corps are responsible for quality control of their news. I’d argue it’s the consumers’ responsibility, but hey, I’m totally cool with Facebook and Twitter taking the liability, as long they’re regulated as publishers, which means: bye-bye censoring conservatives.
And you’ve just got to ask yourself: who in their right mind, on a day of celebration, would want to subject themselves to a political diatribe? From the left or right? And it’s kind of scary to think that Generation Z, the zoomers, might get actual pleasure out of listening to this kind of claptrap. Anyways, Trump and Russia weren’t the only targets on Gore’s list.
Gore proceeded to talk about global warming and fossil fuels.
Perhaps the most telling part of Gore’s speech was when he outright admitted “I am also here to recruit you.”
Harvard Group Says ‘F*** ICE,’ Hosts ‘UndocuGraduation’
Harvard University’s Act on a Dream student group hosted an “Undocugraduation” last week, according to Campus Reform. The event was apparently attended by more than 50 students, staff, and administrators of the Harvard community.
You’ve heard of black-only graduations, but have you heard of ones exclusively for illegals? You might think I’m comparing apples and oranges here, but I don’t think it’s too difficult to imagine an America in, let’s say, 2050, where slavery is placed on the same pedestal as national borders. Some people probably already do equate the two.
Harvard’s Act on a Dream group posted to Facebook in March, saying “Fuck ICE and [Customs and Border Patrol]! All these racist institutions have got to go.”
Harvard also apparently doesn’t consider citizenship status at all when awarding financial aid And the Ivy League school is far from the only one catering to illegals. Law school clinics in New Jersey recently received a quarter of a million dollars to represent illegal aliens facing deportation on a pro-bono basis. Over a third of American states allow illegal aliens to obtain IN-STATE tuition — this is all, of course, while American citizens from other states, on average, have to pay over two times as much to attend the same schools. And last month, New York doled out $27 million for children of illegal aliens, while refusing to add money to a fund that’s a tenth the size helping children of fallen soldiers.
