Prominent MIT Board Member Resigns Over University Doing the Bidding of Communist China
Michelle Bethel, a former McGovern Institute for Brain Research board member at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has resigned from her post over the university doing the bidding of China.
Bethel penned an op/ed in the Wall Street Journal explaining the impetus for her decision, detailing why she could no longer in good conscience work for MIT knowing how they serve the authoritarian communist dictatorship.
“The Communist Party has reasserted itself in every aspect of China’s society—economic, social, cultural and, yes, scientific. Yet MIT and the McGovern Institute seem to have failed to scrutinize these developments. I believe that MIT doesn’t have a firm grasp on events in China or on the risks of partnerships with Chinese institutions in cutting-edge areas of science that are subject to misappropriation or abuse for military modernization or repression,” Bethel explained.
“By conducting research with institutions in China, the McGovern Institute unwittingly could be aiding the country’s repressive security apparatus or its military, whose officers have published articles declaring biology a new domain of warfare,” she continued.
“Given my concerns, the logical next step would be a thoughtful discussion. As an academic institution, we should promote diversity of opinion and sincere debate. Yet when colleagues at the institute abruptly shut down this idea, I saw little merit in continuing to express my concerns internally—or in remaining on the board,” Bethel concluded. “In parting, I ask the board, and others like it across the country, to take a stand against working with repressive governments. We should promote ethics before the pursuit of science.”
MIT does not only do the bidding of communist despots; they also do the bidding of notorious abusers. They housed deceased pedophile and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein long after it was known that he preyed upon children, happily taking his blood money and his direction following his conviction.
Big League Politics reported on how Epstein’s pedo bucks were used at the behest of globalist vax pusher Bill Gates to build MIT’s Media Lab after his conviction for child sex abuse:
“Deceased sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein helped raise funds for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) Media Lab in the years prior to his death, as the university ignored his conviction for soliciting underage prostitutes to exploit the fiend’s wealthy connections.
The New Yorker obtained records showing that Epstein served as an intermediary of sorts between the M.I.T. Media Lab and some of the world’s most influential donors. Epstein helped to rake in $7.5 million for the lab, with investor Leon Black allegedly giving $5.5 million and globalist technophile Bill Gates allegedly giving $2 million.
The M.I.T. Media lab was well-aware of Epstein’s history as a sexual abuser at the time, but looked the other way because he was bringing in so much cash. Joi Ito, director of the M.I.T. Media Lab, referred to Epstein as “he who must not be named” because of the child sex predator’s toxic reputation.
M.I.T.’s president, L. Rafael Reif, has admitted his university’s ties with Epstein and apologized for them publicly. He wrote last month, “with hindsight, we recognize with shame and distress that we allowed MIT to contribute to the elevation of his reputation, which in turn served to distract from his horrifying acts. No apology can undo that.”
But according to internal e-mails leaked from the M.I.T. Media lab, there was far more of a connection between Epstein and the university than administration officials led the public to believe.
“Could you re-up/top-off with another $100K so we can extend his contract another year?” Ito wrote to Epstein in 2014 about a researcher at the firm, and Epstein responded affirmatively.
“Make sure this gets accounted for as anonymous,” Ito wrote of an Epstein donation. Peter Cohen, who was formerly the M.I.T. Media Lab’s Director of Development and Strategy, made the order explicitly: “Jeffrey money, needs to be anonymous. Thanks.”
The M.I.T. Media Lab also went through great lengths to conceal Epstein’s involvement in helping procure massive donations from the world’s elite.
“This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein,” Ito wrote in one email.
It appears that most, if not all, of America’s most privileged institutions are heinously corrupt from top to bottom. A full-scale revolt may be in order as the last chance to restore civilization from the monstrous fifth column destroying it from within.
