Far-Left Racist Gets Promoted by Cambridge University After Saying ‘White Lives Don’t Matter’
Priyamvada Gopal has been promoted to the role of professor by Cambridge University after making a racist tweet declaring that “white lives don’t matter.”
Gopal made the announcement on her Twitter account:
Thanks to everyone who wrote to @Twitter: the ludicrous ban has been lifted. I am therefore delighted to share with you personally, that last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship. The hate mails & threats are coming in non-stop but @CambridgeCops are following up

The Cambridge Faculty of English released a statement showing that they stood with this anti-white racist and denounced the people who were angry at her blatantly racist comments.
“The Faculty of English fully supports all our members in our commitment to freedom of speech. Members should be able to make lawful expression of challenging views without fear of disrespect or discrimination. We abhor the racist language and threats that have been received by our colleague, Prof Priyamvada Gopal,” they wrote.
The comment that Gopal wrote, which was later deleted by Twitter for violating terms of service, reads as follows: “I’ll say it again. White Lives Don’t Matter. As white lives.”
She attempted to justify her racist statement with some pseudo-scientific gobbledygook, the type that Marxists always use to justify their campaigns of hate and envy.
“I would also like to make clear I stand by my tweets, now deleted by Twitter, not me. They were very clearly speaking to a structure and ideology, not about people,” she wrote in a tweet.
Cambridge University came out with a statement in which they claim to support freedom of speech among its employees:
The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions which others might find controversial and deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks. These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease.

However, social scientist Noah Carl was fired from his research fellowship by Cambridge last year after he came to conclusions with his studies that were not sufficiently politically correct. He would go on to sue for “unfair dismissal, discrimination because of religion or belief and breach of contract.”
“At the end of last year, I found myself at the center of a media storm after a censorious open letter accusing me of ‘racist pseudoscience’ was signed by several hundred academics. The open letter was addressed to St Edmund’s College at the University of Cambridge, where I had been appointed to a research fellowship just two months earlier,” Carl explained in his open letter about the incident.
“It repeated catchphrases such as ‘racist’ and ‘discredited’ – but offered no specific evidence for its slanderous accusations,” he added.
The same type of staffers who are coalescing behind Gopal after she made blatantly racist comments about whites threw Carl under the bus simply because they did not like the findings made in his scientifically valid work.
“Such coordinated acts of public shaming not only allow signatories to virtue-signal their support for certain political causes but also serve as a warning to potential dissidents: tread carefully, or face mass denunciation. And indeed, other young scholars who might have considered looking into the same topics as me will now be less inclined to do so,” he explained.
The system of academia is rotten to its very core, in Britain and throughout the West. These far-left thought prisons allow hatred and radicalism to fester while stomping out legitimate dissident thought and inquiry.
