Harvard’s antisemitism task force proves to be a total joke as another leader resigns
By Post Editorial Board

Harvard’s effort to root out antisemitism has officially entered Keystone Kops territory.

Business prof Raffaella Sadun, appointed co-chair of the troubled task force just last month, abruptly resigned over the weekend — reportedly because the task force’s mandate doesn’t include any high-priority changes to actually combat Jew-hatred.

The remaining co-chair, meanwhile, is Derek Penslar, an Israel-hating historian who claimed that the problem of Jew-hatred at Harvard had been exaggerated by “outsiders.”

And don’t forget the earlier resignation of world-famous Rabbi David Wolpe from the task force, explaining on X that the “system at Harvard” — and “the ideology that grips far too many of the students and faculty” and that “places Jews as oppressors” — is “itself evil.”

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Unless you’re going to be a doctor or a lawyer, there is no reason to go to a university anymore

Universities are turning out some of the most ignorant crybabies the world has ever seen
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Your tax dollars at work, via student loans and Government grants.

Congress should prevent the use of Federal monies to subsidize hate.

DOJ should investigate hate groups on US Universities since they receive Federal monies.

The only way to hurt universities is to hit them in the wallet.

Joke's the same, only the jokesters change.
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

It is just expensive 4-5 years of daycare for a lost generation of underachievers and future welfare queens.

Harvard sees decline in applications after anti-semitism scandal, ban on affirmative action
Harvard received 5 percent fewer applications than last year, but admitted .17 percent more prospective students.
Jarryd Jaeger, The Post Millennial

On Thursday, Harvard released data for its 2024 intake, revealing that of the 54,008 applicants, 1,937 were granted admission. While the low acceptance rate is nothing new, what is notable is the fact that the number of prospective students hoping to study at the university went down to levels unseen since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The news comes following months of scandals involving university leadership, discrimination on campus in the wake of Hamas' October 7 massacre, and the Supreme Court's ruling that banned affirmative action policies.

According to the New York Post, Harvard received 5 percent fewer applications than last year, but admitted .17 percent more prospective students.

The Harvard Gazette buried the fact that the number of people hoping to study at the storied institution had declined, noting only that, "this marks the fourth consecutive year Harvard has received more than 50,000 applications." ...
