After the Outrage Mob kicked up their typical sputtering anger, Harvard University rescinded its acceptance of Parkland teen Kyle Kashuv.
It sucks, I’ll grant you. I read through Kyle’s Twitter thread about it and felt bad for him. There’s not doubt the kid is getting screwed.
Harvard caved to the Outrage Mob for one reason: If you do not toe the Leftist party line, there will never be a statute of limitations on stupid things you said or did as a kid.
Now, if Kyle Kashuv was a far-Left activist like his schoolmate (and Harvard student) David Hogg, Harvard would have forgiven him in a New York minute.
Unfortunately for Kyle, he isn’t a far-Left activist. So there will never be any forgiveness for the stupid, thoughtless sins of his youth.
But here’s the thing I just do not understand. Why would anyone who isn’t a brain-dead Leftist or the pampered child of a celebrity Democrat politician want to attend Harvard University in the first place?
Harvard is garbage.
There’s nothing “elite” or remotely “higher learning” about this so-called elite institution of higher learning.
Though, it remains an institution. But only in the “he should be institutionalized” kinda way.
I’ve been saying for years that attending insanely expensive universities is, well, insane.
The adults aren’t running these institutions anymore. They’ve surrendered control to the loudest, most radical voices.
And not just at Harvard. Most colleges and universities in the country have put the lunatics in charge. And the so-called adults now spend their time accommodating these psychos – even to the detriment of their institution.
Just look at Oberlin.
You think if sane adults were in charge at Oberlin College they’d be facing a $33M judgment in a defamation suit?
And if adults were in charge at Harvard, they’d have told that faux Outrage Mob to stick it where the sun don’t shine.
But they’re too afraid to stand up against the mob.
Of course there is a bit of an irony here. One of the folks leading this “Destroy Kashuv” Outrage Mob was none other than performance artist Laura Loomer. I know! Loomer, disgruntled and bitter over her deplatforming has made it her mission to destroy any conservatives who didn’t fight for her. And here Harvard caved to this woman — someone they ordinarily would find repugnant. But I guess the Outrage Mob makes for some strange bedfellows.
Any old how.
Colleges and Universities have a choice to make. They can either continue to let the mob rule them or they can return to being places that educate, challenge and prepare young people for both adulthood and a career.
Though given the current trajectory, I am highly doubtful they will ever choose the latter.
And that just might be their undoing.
As Jesse Kelly pointed out today:
The college bubble is going to burst because:
1. It’s never been more expensive.
2. The product (graduating students) have never been worse.
3. Employers are waking up and removing the college requirements for employment.
And I’m gonna laugh watching it burn to the ground.
Yeah. I’ll be laughing too.
And, see, that’s why I don’t understand why any conservative would even entertain paying money to attend a cesspool like Harvard.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m sorry this Kyle Kashuv is being screwed; I really am. This is a crappy way to learn that a once prestigious university is garbage.
And, frankly, if Harvard caves to the pressure and reinstates their acceptance of Kyle, I hope he tells them to go screw themselves.
If anything, this entire incident pretty much proves that Harvard University is completely incapable of providing Kyle – or anyone else for that matter – with an education.
Please explain to me why the average American taxpayer should be underwriting loans to students to study at Harvard, which has just proved itself nothing more than a woke seminary once again.

Why are we subsidizing it again?
And why are we letting it sit on an untaxed $38B endowment while we pay for the student loans to fund its uniformly leftist student body’s tuition?
I’ve been saying for years that it’s time to wean young people off this notion that they must attend college after high school. It no longer serves the purpose it was intended to serve.
Unless your goal is to go into medicine or the law – or some other profession that necessitates a college degree – it’s nothing but a waste of time and money.
If Kyle Kashuv was my son, my advice would be to take a few years away from school. Get a job. Get some life experience. And if, after a few years, you still want to attend a university, choose one known for providing an education rather than one known for caving to the shrieking Mob.
