Here’s why…

1/ THREAD: Harvard rescinded my acceptance.

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.

2/ A few weeks ago, I was made aware of egregious and callous comments classmates and I made privately years ago – when I was 16 years old, months before the shooting – in an attempt to be as extreme and shocking as possible.

I immediately apologized.

Here is my apology:

3/ 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.

4/ After the story broke, former peers & political opponents began contacting Harvard urging them to rescind me. Harvard then sent this letter stating that Harvard “reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission” and requested a written explanation within 72 hours.

5/ I responded to the letter with a full explanation, apology, and requested documents.

6/ I also sent an email to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to seek guidance on how to right this wrong and work with them once I was on campus.

7/ Harvard decided to rescind my admission with the following letter.

8/ Somewhat ironically, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion sent me this response regarding my apology:

“Thank you for your email. We appreciate your thoughtful reflections and look forward to connecting with you upon your matriculation in the fall of 2020…”

9/ After receiving Harvard’s letter revoking my acceptance, I responded by asking for the opportunity to have an in-person meeting to make my case face to face and work towards any possible path of reconciliation.

Harvard responded by declining my meeting request.

10/ 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.

12/ I believe that institutions and people can grow. I’ve said that repeatedly.

In the end, this isn’t about me, it’s about whether we live in a society in which forgiveness is possible or mistakes brand you as irredeemable, as Harvard has decided for me.

13/ So what now? I’m figuring it out.

I had given up huge scholarships in order to go to Harvard, and the deadline for accepting other college offers has ended.

I’m exploring all options at the moment.

Reactions:

The progressive black balling of Kyle Kashuv is a reminder that there’s no concept of grace in the secular religion.

One of the predictable lessons from the Kashuv situation: people will avoid public life. If Kashuv hadn’t become an activist after Parkland, he’s never targeted.

This mob was being led by the worst elements on the right, including open bigots, and the worst elements on the left. I hope those that joined in to target a kid are proud of themselves.

Watch: Biden Says He Talks With His Team About COVID-19, Asks ‘Where Do We Do?’

‘Implemencation?’ What?

It’s a day ending in “y,” so 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden said something silly. It’s just par for the course, at this point – like a tweet from President Trump. It’s just going to happen. The fact that the former vice president, who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama, still has trouble stringing along basic sentences, is troubling. Unless you’re a Democrat. In that case, everything is fine.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.” Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TheFirstonTV/status/1243943188202741760 https://twitter.com/5thYear/status/1244003547605348352 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243996304444923904 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1243989599128563713 https://twitter.com/HardFactorMark/status/1244018816780324865 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243981209807532032 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/1244018174347153412 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1244010121568456706 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243986977340325893 https://twitter.com/HKWORLDCITY/status/1243865641448169474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243865641448169474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-senior-who-official-avoids-taiwan-question-talks-about-china-abruptly-ends-interview%3F%253Futm_source%3Dtwitter%26utm_medium%3Dsocial%26utm_campaign%3Ddwtwitter https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1244006484754583552 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1244012697135370240 https://twitter.com/BNODesk/status/1243965506983428096

China Likely Lying About COVID-19 Deaths, Photos Shows Thousands of Urns [Report]

How will they spin this one?

It was reported on Friday that the United States overtook China and Italy with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus. But why would anyone (except for the left-wing mainstream media) believe the Chinese are reporting their numbers accurately? Don’t fall for it, y’all. From Bloomberg: The long lines and stacks of ash urns greeting family members of the dead at funeral homes in Wuhan are spurring questions about the true scale of coronavirus casualties at the epicenter of the outbreak, renewing pressure on a Chinese government struggling to control its containment narrative. The families of those who succumbed to the virus in the central Chinese city, where the disease first emerged in December, were allowed to pick up their cremated ashes at eight local funeral homes starting this week. As they did, photos circulated on Chinese social media of thousands of urns being ferried in. CONTINUED: Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside. It’s unclear how many of the urns had been filled.
