The criminal at the heart of a nationwide college admission corruption scandal told the wealthy and privileged students he shepherded into elite colleges to claim that they were minorities, according to reporting from the Wall Street Journal.

William “Rick” Singer, the founder of the Edge College and Career Network, told students who sought admissions to prestigious universities to misrepresent their ethnic and racial background. Singer is currently facing numerous felony charges in Massachusetts for his role in overseeing the college admissions fraud ring, and is accused of utilizing numerous underhanded tactics such as bribery and artificially inflating test scores to secure admissions for the children of his wealthy clients.

A desire among major universities and colleges to admit a higher proportion of minority students is said to have played a role in Singer’s scam. Singer told parents to change their child’s race on admissions forms to ‘Black’ or ‘Hispanic.’ Students also were told to exaggerate distant family connections. such as invoking Native American identity on account of generationally separated relatives.

Singer’s scam was specially targeted towards wealthy and affluent clients, and is described by some to have exposed the greater American academic establishment as a farcical mockery of meritocratic principles. As Singer got affluent and entitled children of the rich into schools like Stanford and Harvard on the basis of lies, middle and working-class young Americans were likely rejected admission to make space.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
