Harvard Withdraws Admission of Parkland Survivor and Conservative Gun-Rights Advocate Kyle Kashuv After Social Media Mob Demands It

Allegedly he made "racist" comments, and the mob demanded its weekly scalp.

Screenshots of the offensive statements surfaced about a month ago when Kashuv's critics in both lefty media and far-right circles teamed up to destroy him.

...


[T]his decision is troubling. For one thing, it represents a major victory for the online mobs of cancel culture. One way to discourage Twitter trolls from dredging up old dirt on their enemies would be to ignore them. By giving the bullies exactly what they wanted, Harvard has only emboldened them. Indeed, gun control activist David Hogg--a fellow Parkland survivor--is currently a trending topic on Twitter, in part because some on the right would like to find a basis on which to argue that Harvard should de-admit him as well. (Inappropriate and conspiratorial claims that Hogg isn't smart enough have occasionally flooded social media.)


Harvard's decision here is also an endorsement of the position that people should be shamed and punished for their worst mistakes as kids. But moving forward, as technology gives everyone the ability to record every moment of our lives, this will be an untenable position--all embarrassing moments will be preserved forever, available for re-litigation.

A culture of narcs and Stasi informants -- and the cucks can't stop applauding.
