Kashuv Launches Tirade of Blame After Harvard Rescinds His Acceptance

Kashuv is not pleased with the fallout from his scandal involving racist comments.

A former Turning Point USA star who was slated to attend Harvard University had his acceptance rescinded after he was exposed for making racist comments in high school.

“Harvard rescinded my acceptance,”Kyle Kashuv said on Twitter. “Three months after being admitted to Harvard Class of 2023, Harvard has decided to rescind my admission over texts and comments made nearly two years ago, months prior to the shooting. I have some thoughts. Here’s what happened.”

Kashuv was thrown into the spotlight of the conservative media world after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, which claimed 17 lives. He was propped up as the pro-Second Amendment counterpart to David Hogg, who built a following by denouncing gun ownership in the wake of the shooting.

Kashuv released a statement – surely written by public relations professionals – after his racism scandal, in which he repeatedly used the N-word, was exposed. He called his own comments “callous and inflammatory,” and insisted that the shooting at his high school had forced him to mature as a human being.

But Kashuv is not willing to accept all of the blame for his rescinded Harvard acceptance. He continued to Tweet in a thread, and partially blamed media attacks for his misfortune. He also blamed others who called for Harvard to rescind his acceptance.

“After I issued this apology, speculative articles were written, my peers used the opportunity to attack me, and my life was once again reduced to a headline. It sent me into one of the darkest spirals of my life,” he said.

He then continued, bashing the university for failing to give him a second chance.

“Harvard deciding that someone can’t grow, especially after a life-altering event like the shooting, is deeply concerning. If any institution should understand growth, it’s Harvard, which is looked to as the pinnacle of higher education despite its checkered past,” he said.

“Throughout its history, Harvard’s faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots and antisemites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn’t possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution. But I don’t believe that,” he continued.

Given the state of American institutions of higher learning, Kashuv would likely be better off not attending one at all. This could be a blessing in disguise.

But the fact remains: Kashuv’s actions led him to this outcome. Harvard – as a private institution – has the right to do as it pleases. This is an exercise in that “free market” that all of those “true conservatives” are always lecturing about.

Does Kashuv deserved to have his life ruined over comments made in his teens? No. But blaming others is distasteful and uncouth. Accepting personal responsibility is the conservative thing to do.

Mexico is in Third Place for Wuhan Virus Deaths Yet Democrats Still Want to Open the Floodgates to Mass Migration

Published

on

According to the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Mexico is ranked in third place for Wuhan virus deaths.

The country has 462,690 confirmed cases, with 50,517 people having died from the virus. This puts Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.9 percent

According to a report from Breitbart News, Mexican officials assert that the “high number of fatalities is due to the fact that people are fat and eat junk food.”

There is speculation that the numbers disclosed by the Mexican government have been filled with cases of rampant undercounting. Some officials believe that the numbers could be three times as high as those officially recorded, according to a Breitbart Texas report.

As of August 7, 2020, the following countries led the way in terms of Wuhan virus related deaths.

 

  1. United States — 160,104 fatalities
  2. Brazil — 98,493 fatalities
  3. Mexico — 50,517 fatalities

Although the conventional narrative is that high diabetes and obesity rates contributed to Mexico’s high Wuhan virus death count, Ildefonso Ortiz of Breitbart News pointed to information from the government epidemiology oversight database which “revealed that in Mexico City, many of the fatal patients were actually otherwise-healthy young adults who did not have access to a ventilator” according to a Forbes report.

Regardless of what the root causes of Mexico’s Wuhan virus death are, the U.S. needs to get serious about fully securing its border.

Let’s face it, Mexico is a failed state and its problems will inevitably make their way to the U.S. if the border remains relaxed.

With Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling for radical open borders policies, the U.S. is on the cusp of unleashing a tidal wave of social and public health dysfunction should he beat President Trump in November.

The Trump administration needs to get serious about this matter and completely secure the border while exposing Biden’s mass migration radicalism.
