The #CancelYale Counter-Insurgency

The #CancelYale Counter-Insurgency

Yesterday, Jesse Kelly launched was has got to be the most effective counter-insurgency against the Cancel Culture movement ever.  He highlighted the shameful slave trading history of Yale University namesake Elihu Yale.  And within hours the hashtag #CancelYale was trending on Twitter.

It started there and took off like wildfire.

The best part was the way Jesse used all the familiar tropes of the Cancel Culture movement to advance #CancelYale.  He also employed the same arguments used for everything from reparations to the call to rename military bases named for Confederate Generals

It was a thing a beauty.

The best part of Jesse’s #CancelYale counter-insurgency was when he named and shamed Yale alumni for being complicit in Yale’s slavery past.

And let’s just say the Perpetually Offended Left did not handle #CancelYale at all well.  I’d include some of the more well-I-nevery tweets Jesse quote-tweeted, but most of them were deleted.

But there were some that still survived to be screen-captured.

The funniest responses were from those who had no earthly idea what the #CancelYale counter-insurgency was all about.

Thanks to Jesse’s relentless campaign, Yale’s Twitter account ended up deleting some tweets when the #CancelYale crowd swarmed the replies. Which is why the Yale tweet Jesse quote-tweeted here does not appear:

JK to Yale

In other words, Jesse turned the Cancel Culture tactics back on the Cancel Culture in the most righteous “How do you like it?!” maneuver ever.

And five hours after he began this counter-insurgency, #CancelYale was trending like wildfire.

But Jesse didn’t stop at #CancelYale.  As the evening progressed, he also pointed out the racist, slave-owning histories of the founders of Rice University, Brown University and Georgetown.

It was absolutely delightful to watch.

I have to admit, watching someone throw this nonsense back in the faces of the Cancel Culture dummies is extremely satisfying. Jesse Kelly is definitely not a part of the Coward Culture. There are many ways to fight back against the Cancel Culture insanity, and Kelly’s #CancelYale is an example of what Rush Limbaugh often does — pointing out absurdity by being absurd.

And the fact that the Perpetually Offended have no idea what to make of it is just the icing on the cake.

    Jesse Kelly needs to do a follow-up and follow-on.

    Another Yale benefactor was Bishop George Berkeley, who endowed on the school a plantation complete with slaves. Not only did Elihu Yale own slaves, but the university itself owned slaves.

    And here’s the second punch-line: Berkeley, California, was named for the same Bishop Berkeley. Not only must that city be renamed, but also the University of California, Berkeley must be renamed!

      What was that other group that participated in the slave trade? I think there was some kind of rebellion or confederation or something? Who were those guys again? ?

      Oh yeah… #CancelDemocrats

    And Duke University…..what about Duke……..Washington Duke owned at least one slave; he paid $601 for her. He also paid neighbors to use their slaves on his farm.
    Check out Brown University’s connection to slavery.

    Leftists pay no mind to the TRUTH. It is such an out-dated concept for them. They deal in expedients. Anything that will move the ball forward will be used and truth be damned. Leftists are EVIL LIARS in the mold of Josef Goebbels. They lie so much they have to pay royalties to his estate! Hey, Conservatives, time to go on offense and put some pepper on the gloves!

    Last night on “Life, Liberty & Levin”, Mark Levin had 2 brilliant men on, one of whom specifically addressed these commie colleges and universities and their indoctrination of students. If anyone missed it, it will be repeated on Saturday.

    BTW, I just sent a scathing letter to Dan Cathy of Chic-Fil-A on his insane comment that “white Christians should clean the shoes of blacks”. I am so done with them. This time, finally done with them.

    “Dan Cathy”? You don’t suppose he got picked on in school, do you? It seems to have left permanent emotional damage. Never tried that food and now I never will.
