Harvard RESCINDS admission of Kyle Kashuv despite apology for stupid comments he made when he was 16

Harvard admitted Kyle Kashuv to their class of 2023, a well-known conservative and a survivor of the Parkland massacre. But after a mob began pressuring the elite school to rescind his admittance, using private comments he made as an immature 16-year-old, Harvard caved and did just that.

Kyle tells the story of what happened below:



This is pretty ridiculous of Harvard. Clearly this has little to do with what Kashuv said when he was 16 and more to do with Harvard kowtowing to the liberal mob who hates him – the same mob that protested Kavanaugh until both he and Harvard Law School had to cancel his classes for the spring of this year.

This has also generated a lot of outrage by conservatives on Twitter over Harvard using this as an excuse to push Kashuv out. Here’s just a few examples:

    1. My guess is prestige and opportunity. Harvard does tend to produce the most obnoxious grads of all the ivies though.

  1. Lessen to the kids out there. This internet thing is not just a playground. What exactly did he say/comment? Why isn’t that mentioned?

    1. Copious use of the N-word directed at classmates.

      And not in a jocular way, or for the purpose of making a rap song as someone has laughably tried to rationalize.

  2. Which one of the following conditions automatically disqualifies you from admission to Harvard?

    A. Advocating the killing of humans in the womb
    B. Saying you are a female when you have male chromosomes
    C. Repeated arrests for assault, battery, and disturbing the peace in leftist protest marches
    D. Hating Israel, orthodox Christianity, American patriots and men
    E. Falsely claiming to be the victim of crimes of one of the above-named groups
    F. Desiring the death or forcible removal of President Trump
    G. Using derogatory racial epithets in private e-mails or social media

  3. We have an entire generation of kids who have posted their entire life online. Name changes and at least two sex changes will be required to live a life.

    In my generation only my friends and the sheriff I was drinking with know what I did as a kid.

  4. Kyle you have offered your remorse to Harvard,but in spite of all the flaws many of their Students and Graduates had and still have they refused your Admittance.Compare yourself with Loretta Lynch,Barack OBama, Tim Kaine, Sandy Burger,Barney Frank and so many other Harvard College Graduates.Consider your mistakes at 16,then wonder how were they ever admitted into Harvard College.Even a community organizer must have made mistakes that would have rescinded his Harvard application. Whatever school you choose you will do just fine,because you have shown character and honesty,something those I just mentioned ,do not have.Just a suggestion,how about Pepperdine University.

  5. He should not have apologized. He should have owned it , and then launched it as a life’s teaching moment. He did not have the right stuff.

    You can never apologize to satisfy another’s agenda. And that is your teaching moment.

    1. I agree. I think some message (especially directed at other young people) in his tweetstorm that things folks ought to consider how their actions can affect them down the line was glaringly missing.

      It teeters on the edge of a Sorry Not Sorry because the apology wasn’t so much “I was wrong” as it was “Screw you Harvard.”

      1. @AT If I had a dime for every stupid or ignorant thing I said as a teenager I would be rich! There is a reason no one should vote or make life altering decisions until 21, AT LEAST. 30 would be acceptable.

  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.”

    Are you freaking kidding me? Someone should have advised this kid that Conservatives should never apologize and bow before the leftist gods. It just gives them more reason to trash you more!

    And why are people so obsessed over these far-leftist Ivy League indoctrination centers? All you have to do is look at Congress and its incompetence to realize how Ivy Leagues are bad for your brains.

  7. There’s that double-standard again. I’m telling you folks, there’s no stopping it. You can whine and cry about it until you’re blue in the face, but the only way to defeat it will be to rise above it.

    This is why we need more Mike Pence on the right, and less Donald Trump. Unassailable character.

    And for pete’s sake, keep off social media. Leftists have shown over and over that they’ll scour the bowels of history to find something to use against you. This is the same advice I give to people dealing with cops. Keep your mouth shut. Don’t do their job for them. Don’t give them anything to work with or use against you. Because they will. F*ck them. Don’t serve yourself up on a platter for cops OR leftists.

    1. It doesn’t matter if its Mike Pence. Do you remember how Mitt Romney the choirboy was made to sound like an animal abusing nazi?

      It doesn’t matter at all how “well behaved’ the conservative is, they will never be anything other than racist, sexist homophobes to the left.

      1. Same with Brett Kavanaugh. But the only way to take the wind out of their sales is by unimpeachable character. It’s the only way, short of killing them.

        And we don’t want that latter future.

    2. @atomicsentinel Watch your language–you aren’t being a good example for aspiring RINOs

  8. I wonder how many leftists they kicked out for supporting BLM when they were promoting the killing of police officers.

      1. @dr-strangelove I don’t know….you’re really putting yourself at risk there when it’s a 100% chance that you’re right. 😀

  9. Why give your money to a Leftwing indoctrination factory? Go to Hillsdale or Liberty instead and save money on a better education.

    1. @grumpenstein That’s funny! Great minds think alike. I posted my comment and then viewed the new ones and we said the same thing! 😎

      1. It’s coming soon. It’s already here in an unofficial capacity. We opened the door when we started trading our privacy for Likes.

  10. “Ivy League” means “liberally deranged” now. I would avoid these cesspools at all costs – which is a play on words because not only do they suck (yes they do) but they’re also WAY overpriced.

  11. Why am I not surprised? Honestly though, why bother to give hard earned dollars to some of these indoctrination centers? He’d probably be better trained and equipped by going to a place like Hillsdale. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

  12. How embarrassing for Harvard and Leftists everywhere. If they had shame. The *ussy patrol grows by the day.

  13. Strange that universities reserve to themselves rights they would deny to businesses.

  14. He made a great point in his interview. Harvard was founded by slave owners which is a far cry from mild use of the “N” word.

    1. So because Harvard was racist almost 300 years ago, he should not be held accountable for his words and actions 2 years ago? What is the logic there?

      What ever happened to personal responsibility? What happened to the idea that our words and actions have consequences? What is happening to conservatives lately?

      1. I agree.

        The increased tendency where every perceived adverse outcome for a self-identified “conservative” is treated as a moral outrage that demands society’s (often government’s) punishment truly differentiates today’s version of conservatism from what it once was. In the past, conservatives believed in individual responsibility. Conservatives recognized that freedom came with responsibility. They understood that because free people could be counted on to be accountable, freedom (limited government) was the desired state of affairs. No more.

        Instead of expressing the wish that Mr. Kashuv will learn from his terrible misuse of Social Media and make use of what might possibly be an unexpected “gap year” to demonstrate that he has the resilience to overcome his personal setback and possesses the character to become a good citizen, today’s conservatives slam Harvard University. Their criticism is misplaced.

        1. Yes. This is precisely why I’ve been strenuously asserting/warning that in recent years, the so-called “conservative” right has shifted alarmingly in a collectivist, progressive direction – largely out of tribalism – to where I cannot distinguish them from the banshee snowflakes on the left who come unglued at every affront and try to bully their way by force of numbers and collective outrage.

          I blame this partially on their acceptance of Donald Trump (though I think he facilitated, as opposed to causing it) and his “race to the bottom” mentality in dealing with opposition, and now they’re addicted to “wins” that come at the expense of conservative principle – which many of them now openly eschew (including Donald).

          We’ve seen it over and over in the recent years. MAGA hats, social media, airport CFAs, and now this. They’re equating unfairness with injustice, and then demanding that their big government “do something.”

          That is the way of the left. And it does not bode well for the future that so many on the right have adopted it; these outrage politics.

          1. I completely agree. The “snowflake” mentality is unmistakably and unambiguously on display. When it comes to private Social Media platforms, the call now is for government intervention. When it comes to Harvard’s rescinding its admission decision for an individual who had engaged in racist conduct and never disclosed that matter to the University, Harvard is blamed. When the President faces media scrutiny, all the while providing very little transparency, the scrutiny is termed ‘unprecedented’ (among other exaggerated characterizations). When the President pursues a protectionist program consistent with his longstanding affection for tariffs (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/15/us/politics/china-trade-donald-trump.html), his apologists try to rationalize that he is somehow pursuing a market-based agenda.

            The 180-degree u-turn from personal responsibility to the snowflake perspective is astonishing.

      2. Whatever happened to forgiveness in the face of repentance? Kashuv bent over backwards; he apologized, he explained, he grovelled; he practically offered to take “sensitivity classes” once he arrived.

        Personal responsibility????? Can you say Ted Kennedy???? The man guilty of far worse than “hate speech?” Who became the “Lion of the Senate?” How about Robert Byrd??? He said FAR worse than the N word, and lived a life that exemplified his horrid beliefs.

        Apparently forgiveness is only for Liberals, who are always allowed to “evolve” or “grow.”

        No such luck for Kashuk. And he isn’t even a politician; he just wants an education.

        1. Forgiveness in the face of repentance? Doesn’t “repentance” involve truly accepting the the consequences of his wrongdoing?

          Is he really repentant when he is out on the talk circuit playing the victim card, and blaming Harvard for a predicament of his own making? Has he really accepted the consequences of his actions, when he portrays himself as still entitled to a spot at Harvard because he apologized.

          Harvard has a practice and precedent of not admitting and/or rescinding when applicants are found to have engaged in offensive racist/sexist speech. That’s their policy, so why should this kid be an exception? Why should he get the spot of another exceptional applicant who managed to not engage in horrific written racist rants at the age of 16.

          While I’m always skeptical when people show contrition precisely when it is their only hope of avoiding consequences, maybe he is sincere. If so, he’ll be forgiven, but that is between him and his maker. An apology doesn’t entitle him to a spot at Harvard.

          As for Ted Kennedy, Bird, etc. the hypocrisy of the Left is not a get-out-of-jail-free-card for the Right. You can’t have it both ways. Either we believe in personal responsibility, or we don’t.

          1. He’s not portraying himself as “worthy of a spot at Harvard.” He’s explained, apologized, and is asking for reconsideration.

            He not only apologized; he explained how he has matured since then, and displayed a willingness to learn to grow and improve even more.

            By your standard, NO ONE should ever be forgiven because that is between the person and his Maker, and NO second chances should ever be given.

            All mistakes require the death sentence. Figuratively, of course.

  15. Just watched his interview on Fox.. Sorry, but his attempts to justify his racism by pointing out Harvard admitted racists during times of slavery, when he was racist online 2 years ago was bad enough that even the guy on fox pushed back.

    Harvard is a private institution. They control who they admit. Conservatives protesting this should remind themselves of their support for businesses refusing to serve customers based on their personal beliefs. Harvard have cracked down of late, in regards to who they admit.. They are well within their rights.

    If your aim is Harvard, the answer is simple. Do not post racist and bigoted rubbish online .. It should be easy to not be racist. And for those saying it is just a joke, etc.. Racism is not funny. At 16 or 60.

    1. Harvard admitted that fascist kid David Hogg eve though he was not at all qualified academically and UCLA had already rejected him. But they looked for the first opportunity once they realized they had admitted Hogg’s opponent.

      I strongly suspect that they didn’t realize who Kashuv was initially. They just saw Parkland and said yes. If they did know, he must have had amazing credentials because the chance of any kid in his demographic is about 1%, unless they are “development” kids, ie kids of huge donors.

    2. I’d like to know what crap came spewing out of your pie hole when you were 16. The actions of a stupid kid cannot be held against him when he’s an adult. Even criminal law recognizes that to a great extent. Those that do such as yourself are the real enemies. You scare the living hell out of me. There’s no forgiveness in your heart.

      1. I was not racist. I was respectful and polite. My parents raised me well and properly.

        My kids are nearly 14 and 12. Not a single one of them would ever, ever, utter racist or bigoted things. Nor do their friends. Do you know why? Because they were raised properly. Mr Kashuv made a series of racist comments on various media over a period of time. It was not a one off comment made in supposed jest. It was an ongoing pattern of racist behavior. The Googledocs comments were bad enough. But when you look at his texts, they were not only racist, but also anti-Semitic, sexist and misogynistic.

        And I am sorry, but in criminal law, 16 year olds are often tried as adults.

        Having been on the receiving end of the words he uttered throughout my life, it is not my place to forgive him. That is between God and himself. What I am suggesting that perhaps, just perhaps, people can simply not be racist. It’s actually not that hard. And certainly, if you have been racist, perhaps, just perhaps, going on Fox News and whining that others were racist over 100 years ago and went to Harvard as a form of justification is probably not the best idea.

        I am a firm believer in one facing the consequences of one’s actions. This is the consequence of his repeated actions. We can well hope that Mr Kashuv has now learned his lesson.

        1. What I’ve learned from your comment. Lacks forgiveness, boastful. judgmental and a liar. Plus probably not a Monty Python fan.

          1. If this makes you feel better about yourself, sure.

            I mean, this is what this is about, isn’t it? Validation and an expectation that bad behavior should be ignored. That only some actions have consequences and racism and anti-semitism is okay when it’s “one of ours”? Actions have consequences. As this kid is now learning. If I made such posts on social media or anywhere the university I teach at would rightly fire me. Being a conservative would have nothing to do with it.

            I would hope that simply not being racist should not be that high or big of an expectation. But apparently this makes me judgemental.. Whatever makes you sleep better at night, I suppose.

            And I adore Monty Python.. Life of Brian is one of my favorite movies.

        2. “My kids are nearly 14 and 12. Not a single one of them would ever, ever, utter racist or bigoted things.”

          lol. Yes, ofcourse, your kids are angels–at least every parent likes to think so about their kids.

          1. My kids aren’t angels. Far from it. They are kids.

            But, they aren’t racist. Why is this so hard to comprehend?

  16. Its a bad deal all around, kid…but to be honest, Hah-vhad, while a decent school, ISN’T worth the coin it takes to get a degree from unless you have prior connections to Government/Business interests – even overseas….and that doens’t just apply to Harvard either.

    Are there any sane, actual Conservative (Faith & non-Faith based) Colleges you could apply to? Maybe not with the name recognition, but with just as decent academia curriculum.

  17. I understand why people think this kid is being targeted for his gun politics, but the rescission is consistent with recent Harvard admissions rescissions. In the spring of 2017 Harvard rescinded the admissions of at least ten applicants because they had shared, in a chat group, explicit and offensive memes, some of which targeted minority groups.

    https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2017/6/5/2021-offers-rescinded-memes/

    Like it or not, this seems to be their policy.

    1. I don’t understand why they think that. He was accepted even though his gun politics were widely known.

      I think they just want to find black helicopters at Harvard Admissions.

  18. He made a great point in his interview. Harvard was founded by slave owners which is a far cry from mild use of the “N” word.

            All mistakes require the death sentence. Figuratively, of course.

            1. Please, if you are going to quote me, do it accurately. I didn’t say “worthy” I said “entitled.” And he most certainly is portraying himself as entitled to a spot. He thinks his convenient apology ought to set things straight, but Harvard disagrees, so he is now lashing out at Harvard like a child throwing a temper tantrum after not getting his way.

              He blames everyone but himself. But only he is to blame. Why should Harvard give him a second chance when he obviously doesn’t even believe that his racist rants should be disqualifying?

              And what difference does it make that he claimed (after he got caught) that he’s matured since then? A lot of 9th and 10th graders have rough years academically, and then not only claim they matured, but actually show it by improving their grades. Guess what? Almost all of those students will NOT be admitted by Harvard. Why on Earth would Harvard give a break to a kid who threw racist fits, rather than one of tens of thousands of other qualified kids?

              As for your made up claims about my “standards,” don’t be ridiculous. He wasn’t given “the death sentence.” His life isn’t over. He just can’t go to Harvard, just like the other thousands of qualified kids who were rejected, and the millions of kids who didn’t even bother to apply because they had no chance.

  19. Just watched his interview on Fox.. Sorry, but his attempts to justify his racism by pointing out Harvard admitted racists during times of slavery, when he was racist online 2 years ago was bad enough that even the guy on fox pushed back.

            But, they aren’t racist. Why is this so hard to comprehend?

            1. It’s not hard to comprehend. But it seems to be that way for you. Should your children be judged in the future for actions they may commit as children? I wouldn’t wish that upon my worst enemy. That’s what is happening here. Being condemned by disgusting people like you for stupid crap committed by a teenager. If your children for example shoplift as teenagers should they be judged as thieves for the rest of their lives? In your disgusting world yes they should. You offend me to the point of nauseousness. You behave just as the left behave. Perhaps you should join them. I hope you’re treated with kinder hands when your day of judgement comes. Good day.

        2. What I’ve learned from your comment. Lacks forgiveness, boastful. judgmental and a liar. Plus probably not a Monty Python fan.

  23. Did Singer have one last Hollywood star kid he needed to get into Harvard to make good on the $500 million endowment pledge? Someone had to go. Guess it was this kid who got the short straw.

    Check out who got the last slot in the freshman class …. and why.

  24. He should not have apologized. He should have owned it , and then launched it as a life’s teaching moment. He did not have the right stuff.

    You can never apologize to satisfy another’s agenda. And that is your teaching moment.

    1. I agree. I think some message (especially directed at other young people) in his tweetstorm that things folks ought to consider how their actions can affect them down the line was glaringly missing.

      It teeters on the edge of a Sorry Not Sorry because the apology wasn’t so much “I was wrong” as it was “Screw you Harvard.”

      1. @AT If I had a dime for every stupid or ignorant thing I said as a teenager I would be rich! There is a reason no one should vote or make life altering decisions until 21, AT LEAST. 30 would be acceptable.

    1. Harvard is a private institution. Unlawfully taking its assets is incompatible with property rights. Mr. Chamberlain’s position is anything but constitutional. In the past, it would have been abhorrent to conservatives, too.

      1. Higher learning institutions are a scam, leaving kids with years of onerous debt that prevents them from having families and buying a house. All sold on a lie.

        Debt forgiveness shouldn’t be paid by the taxpayer but by the institutions that sold them a worthless degree

          1. Yes, my point is that Harvard doesn’t stand alone. The good ol’ government gets a say.

            1. All institutions need to be treated the same for their students to qualify for federal financial aid programs. The federal government expects that such schools adhere to legal and regulatory requirements. The federal government does not micromanage their admissions policies. Harvard is accredited. Its students qualify.

              1. You’re putting words in my mouth. Your original point was that Harvard was a private institution and I pointed out that they accept federal money. They have to answer to the government.

                1. I may have misunderstood your argument. Apologies for any misunderstanding on my part.

                  They answer to the federal government only to the extent required under the law and federal regulations. This admissions decision almost certainly falls under what is permissible.

  25. Why would this young conservative even want to go to Harvard? It ain’t what it used to be and now only retains a name. Go to Hillsdale College, where you will get a better education and not be subjected to politically correct nonsense.

    1. Monkeywench you are so right hillsdale is an outstanding college Harvard college by name only garbage just garbage

  26. Like @renny below, I was wondering what he said too, then I realized, what does it matter? He was an unknown 16 year old kid, no matter how stupid or vile his words were (and I doubt it was as bad as implied, but even if) they were only words. He didn’t kill anyone, assault anyone, break any laws. Kids Say Dumb Things. Often very hurtful. Wow, alert the media.

    But what Harvard has now done to him is unbelievable. In fact, I might even say unprecedented. This is so beyond anything I have ever heard of regarding admissions I can hardly believe it.

    You know what, Kyle? They may have done you a great big favor. You will work something out and your future is bright. You are much too good for the likes of Harvard. They don’t deserve you.

    Parents, are you paying attention?

    1. then I realized, what does it matter?

      Let’s not be disingenuous. If it had been Hoggboy for his comments, folks would be spiking a football.

      Kids Say Dumb Things. Often very hurtful. Wow, alert the media.

      That’s precisely what happened.

      But what Harvard has now done to him is unbelievable. In fact, I might even say unprecedented.

      Denying admissions to a student they decide isn’t “Harvard material” (as the phrase goes) is unprecedented? I’m pretty sure they’ve denied, even rescinded admissions, before.

      They may have done you a great big favor.

      On that we agree.

      You will work something out and your future is bright. You are much too good for the likes of Harvard.

      Well, except for the racism. That could be a long-term problem for him.

          1. No, AT, I don’t so tell me. Harvard told Kyle to take a hike and he should go somewhere else but to imply that Kyle’s sin was unforgivable is utterly ridiculous.

            1. Lots of use of the N-word toward classmates. Among other things.

              And we don’t get to decide what Harvard regards as unforgivable.

              1. I don’t give a rats ass about Harvard and I’ve said that at least twice now. So, in your words, start thinking! You’re labeling him a racist and that’s wrong but do tell me how you’re right.

                1. I didn’t label him a racist. He did that to himself.

                  And I’m not sure what you’re asking me about being “right.” Harvard was within their rights to yank his acceptance when they discovered something they didn’t like about him. Sucks for him, but that’s a consequence of his own actions.

                  Is there hypocrisy at play? A double-standard? Unfairness? Yep. But so what? They’re allowed to be unfair hypocrites. Did they target him for being a conservative? No, because they had already accepted him. He was going.

                  And then he wasn’t, because his past came back to bite him.

                  There’s a lesson to be taken from that, but folks are too busy trying to rationalize his actions because tribe.

                  Dumb.

                2. You’re promoting the idea that Kyle is a racist. I don’t give a rats ass what Harvard does; however, Harvard is certainly targeting him. He’s the anti-Hogg and Hogg didn’t qualify for Harvard but strangely, now he is. Is Hogg now accepted because the non political Harvard made a mistake?

                3. I’m not promoting anything. He’s apologized and said he’s “grown.” Great. I believe him. But that’s neither here nor there.

                  I’m simply saying that what the kid did was wrong and abhorrent, it’s not wrong to judge him on it, and Harvard can decide whatever they want about their applicants.

                  And they’re not “targeting him.” He was already accepted. They were going to let him in. They’re not booting him for any reason but for the abhorrent things he posted which were really really racist. Hoggboy is irrelevant to any of this.

                4. Maybe read what he wrote before you attack how others respond to it? I don’t know what is in his heart but the things he said were certainly expressions of racism.

            2. Harvard is not in a position to “forgive” him. It is in a position to admit or rescind. Had Harvard had this information there before, he never would have been admitted.

            1. Actually I read it was Laura Loomer. But I don’t trust the source of that and have yet to independently verify it.

      1. They didn’t simply deny him, they rescinded him, and they did it for a bogus reason AND then there’s this:

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

        Yeah, I think that’s way over the line.

        1. Mm, it ain’t that bogus of a reason. Have you seen the google doc that was the basis of this? It was pretty awful.

          Yeah, I think that’s way over the line.

          Why?

          This is actions and consequences, NC. He made some really bad choices, choices he should have known much better than to make, and they’re coming back to bite him in the ass.

          Suppose he were a grown man that was offered a lucrative job. So he quits his current job, sells his house, pulls his kids out of school, and packs up the van – and then, bang, new employer finds something they really despise that he posted just two years prior. So they pull the offer. Ouch.

          Yea, this dude’s up shit creek. But he paddled the boat there, didn’t he.

  27. War against Conservatives is now leaking into all aspects of our lives. Now conservative children are being attacked for acting like children. #Fascism on the rise in America.

      1. Judging from the state of this nation (if not this world) I’d say that the human brain never matures.

        1. The letter from Harvard was posted. The decision had nothing to do with his position on the Second Amendment. That’s not in dispute by any of the parties.

          1. Its not not noted, but no doubt they researched him or got that info as well when making a decision.

            1. They almost certainly had his Second Amendment advocacy, which was widely visible, and accepted him. They were not aware of his racist content at that time.

              1. No, these leftist types dont watch Fox News, so most likely they didnt know about his advocacy other than what told them directly

        2. So’s the KKK. And they talk a lot like he did.

          Has nothing to do with 2A. Has to do with bad choices.

            1. Coming from the guy trying to rationalize a 16yr old calling his classmates the N-word because apparently he’s entitled to a Harvard education.

              This is where tribalism lands you, Abe. Start using your own brain and stop relying on the tribal collective hive mind.

                1. That’s Abe’s position. Apparently people are entitled to youtube and pinterest and Harvard educations, and it’s an egregious crime (and literal Nazi fascism) when conservatives get booted from these places.

                  I know, it’s stupid and makes no sense. Dude’s a snowflake. Deeply offended at any affront to his tribe.

                  But to respond to your point, accepted on his merits, and then denied on them once they learned a little more about the guy.

                2. AT, stop lying.

                  What tribe are you talking about exactly? I dont even know if the kid is Conservative.

                3. You’re the one that brought up all the 2A stuff. As if it’s somehow relevant. I presume that’s why you’re defending his racist screeds and saying there should be no consequence to them. Which is glaringly tribal.

                  If I’m incorrect in that presumption, of course, please feel free to explain why you’re defending this kid.

                4. You presume too much and it makes you look incredibly dishonest.

                  I’m defending the kids freedom and right of speech. You seem to think only corps. and institutions have rights.

                5. I’m defending the kids freedom and right of speech.

                  So, you’re defending what he wrote and your position is that Harvard should have to keep him accepted even though they despise it?

                  Your right to free speech doesn’t come with a right for me to put up with your bullshit when I don’t like it, Abe. You understand that, right?

              1. bla bla bla….. You’re talking as if you know Kyle personally and that his words (the N word – Dear Lord) is unforgivable. Screw Harvard. And, you’re an arrogant, mediocre ass.

                1. He’s within his right to write whatever he wants and upload it to the internet. And the rest of us are within our rights to judge him on it.

                  Ilhan Omar says some pretty f-ed up stuff too. Ahh, but that’s talking like we know here personally and that her words are unforgivable.

                  Don’t make the same mistake Abe does in going down that tribal rabbithole, Kath. You won’t like what you find down there.

                2. Has nothing to do with me liking or not liking something. Has to do with the merits of the scenario.

                  If he’d been posting socialist crap and a college yanked his application, we’d be clapping and saying “Lesson learned, chump!”

                  But apparently principles of actions/consequences go out the window when it’s one of the tribe. Ugh.

          1. Wow – KKK!!! You’re an arrogant ass most of the time, AT. Tell me what is so unforgivable.

            1. It’s not about what is or isn’t forgivable. It’s about choices and their consequences. If he came to me for a job instead of applying to Harvard, I’d probably turn him down for it too. I just don’t need that kind of crap under my roof, y’know?

              1. Kyle wants to learn from a leader so don’t worry AT. You’re talking about a teenager and now young adult. Take your narrative and shove it up your ass because you’re just pontificating – not discussing.

                1. Seriously. I want to know why you’re defending it.

                  Or, at the very least, why he shouldn’t be judged on it or suffer no accountability for it.

      1. You must be slow. It has everthing to do with Kyle being a conservative voice in support of gun rights. If Kyle never voices his opinion on gun rights this NEVER happens to him. FACT

      1. @atomicsentinel err mod2019
        We win, you lose.

        We already are in a civil war.

        A civil society accepts elections. Democrats transfer power when they do not like election results.

        1. Pretty sure Donald’s been President this whole time.

          But I could be wrong. Apparently I didn’t even know that a war had started!

          1. @atomicsentinel
            Liberal judges have put nation wide rulings against him.

            Derp state government employees have undermined him.

            The CIA currently flipping him the finger for cooperation with ag barr

            Etc

                1. I still don’t know what “start the fight back” means. I mean, I get your hysterical rhetoric, I do – but what exactly is it you think we should DO in response to this “civil war” and the legislative/judicial efforts to undermine King Donald?

                2. I will ponder and mull that. Will get back to you , I need to go for a pontoon cruise with adult beverages.

  28. Lessen to the kids out there. This internet thing is not just a playground. What exactly did he say/comment? Why isn’t that mentioned?

    1. Copious use of the N-word directed at classmates.

      And not in a jocular way, or for the purpose of making a rap song as someone has laughably tried to rationalize.

      1. Okay, no. We don’t want the alt-right being confused with Conservatives. I feel sorry for him…not. We have to weed these people out.

          1. I don’t give a rats-patooty about Harvard. If I were his parent, I would advise him to go to a better school. Is he now a KKK member? Are his words so awful that he cannot be forgiven?

            1. I didn’t say he was a KKK member. I said that the KKK supports 2A rights.

              Which is great I guess – but we still don’t want anything to do with those racist motherf’ers.

  29. Dear Kyle you don’t want to go there. Get in touch with Mike Rowe be different from the rest of the pack. Learn a trade, make a fortune, laugh all the way to the bank with those Harvard fools in your rear view mirror.

    1. He wants to run for office some day and having a Harvard degree is a plus. I could imagine he has dreamed of going to Harvard for a very long time only to have the fascist left sink his dream.

      1. Arguably, he sank his own dream the minute he made a bad judgment call about what to post on the internet about his classmates.

        But nah f that, he shouldn’t be judged for his actions. Blame the leftists!

      2. Well he can let that dream go not going to agree that the ” fascist left” sunk his dream that sounds like something the left say blaming someone else for their actions and consequences. It would not be the end of the world for him @cheetobuster if he sucked it up, grew up, and learned a trade. Even IF Harvard let him in look at all the begging he has done WTH would you want to go there when you’d probably be forced out at their earliest convenience/opportunity. His parents need to have a long talk with him and if they decide to sue well pass the vomit bucket getting tired of all this.

        1. that sounds like something the left say blaming someone else for their actions and consequences

          and if they decide to sue well pass the vomit bucket getting tired of all this.

          Agreed. 100%

  30. Kyle you have offered your remorse to Harvard,but in spite of all the flaws many of their Students and Graduates had and still have they refused your Admittance.Compare yourself with Loretta Lynch,Barack OBama, Tim Kaine, Sandy Burger,Barney Frank and so many other Harvard College Graduates.Consider your mistakes at 16,then wonder how were they ever admitted into Harvard College.Even a community organizer must have made mistakes that would have rescinded his Harvard application. Whatever school you choose you will do just fine,because you have shown character and honesty,something those I just mentioned ,do not have.Just a suggestion,how about Pepperdine University.

  31. We have an entire generation of kids who have posted their entire life online. Name changes and at least two sex changes will be required to live a life.

    In my generation only my friends and the sheriff I was drinking with know what I did as a kid.

  32. Which one of the following conditions automatically disqualifies you from admission to Harvard?

    A. Advocating the killing of humans in the womb
    B. Saying you are a female when you have male chromosomes
    C. Repeated arrests for assault, battery, and disturbing the peace in leftist protest marches
    D. Hating Israel, orthodox Christianity, American patriots and men
    E. Falsely claiming to be the victim of crimes of one of the above-named groups
    F. Desiring the death or forcible removal of President Trump
    G. Using derogatory racial epithets in private e-mails or social media

        1. Not off the top of my head.

          But if you do, then go ahead and put together a dossier on the student and mail it to the registrar.

          1. Sorry, I gave up the informer business a long time ago. But you go ahead. It’s easy. You could start with the fact that A, D and possibly E are common traits of tenured Harvard faculty and take it from there.

            1. Sorry, I gave up the informer business a long time ago.

              Then why are you complaining about who should be disqualified and why?

              But you go ahead. It’s easy.

              Because I’ve got better things to do than narc on Other Tribe out of pettiness and vindictiveness. Same reason I don’t punch the guy in the Che shirt while he’s harassing the guy in the MAGA hat.

              I’m just a better human being than him. Might be of little consolation when I go to apply for Harvard – but hey, I’d rather that than reduce myself to their level, Donald style.

              1. Well you seem to have nothing better to do than comment on this thread and assert that you’re a better man than Kashuv is, Gunga Din. Hooray for you.

                Regardless of your point of view on the matter, Harvard remains a hypocritical politically correct leftist indoctrination camp where applicants who toe the party line are good to go, and those who don’t have got a minefield to negotiate and nonstop battle to fight if they do get in. Note to applicants: It’s not worth the expense, boys and girls.

                1. I never said they weren’t hypocrites.

                  But then, they’re allowed to be, aren’t they. And just what the hell is anyone going to do about it. You’re not going to go narcing them out and making a social media stink about it (good on you, by the way, for that, because it’s shitty) – so, like most other stuff, we suffer the double standard in impotence.

      1. Quoting the Crimson? Yeah, Don, there are plenty that get into Harvard that don’t ‘deserve’ to but you should know that.

        1. I reference the Crimson only for the admissions yield related to the high number of applicants and low number of admitted students. Harvard’s reputation is widely known.

      2. Define “leading institution.” What is it’s misson. Veritas? Why haven’t the postmodernists changed Harvard’s motto? It just demonstrates Harvard’s incoherence as an institution of learning. Remove God and you’re left with this mess..

          1. >> The mission of Harvard College is to educate the citizens and citizen-leaders for our society. We do this through our commitment to the transformative power of a liberal arts and sciences education.

            Beginning in the classroom with exposure to new ideas, new ways of understanding, and new ways of knowing, students embark on a journey of intellectual transformation. Through a diverse living environment, where students live with people who are studying different topics, who come from different walks of life and have evolving identities, intellectual transformation is deepened and conditions for social transformation are created. <<

            The only meaningful claim in all this verbiage is to providing a liberal arts and science education. But that claim is belied by the fact that the prevailing postmodern orthodoxy at Harvard rejects the notion of objective truth, which is the ground of every science.

            But Harvard isn’t alone in this. Almost every college has an incoherent mission statement, often laughably so.

            Anyway, I logged in to upvote Thomas Aquinas College. Where did that post go?

    1. My guess is prestige and opportunity. Harvard does tend to produce the most obnoxious grads of all the ivies though.

  33. A bunch of people who never had a chance of getting in to Harvard or even donate is telling them how to run their own school? And they listened? Harvard no longer controls themselves or is controlled by donors. They’re controlled by the screaming few.

  34. Thanks to information AT supplied, I believe Harvard’s decision was correct. Previously, I had written:

    As I lack complete and relevant information, I take no position on the decision.

    Two thoughts from reading this article:

    1. Kashuv said that he was “recently” made aware of “offensive comments former classmates” and he had made. By including “former classmates” in his response, he could well have been seen as not taking full responsibility for his actions.

    2. Did Kashuv ever apologize or act to redress whatever comments he had made prior to his application to Harvard? If not, that would also raise potential questions among an Admissions panel as to whether he was genuinely sorry for his past conduct or expressed remorse only after his having been caught. The former would make a much stronger case for his character.

    Harvard’s published information on what it looks for in its students includes, “What choices have you made for yourself? Why?” and “What about your maturity, character, leadership… under pressure?”

    https://college.harvard.edu/admissions/application-process/what-we-look

    These are difficult issues. As I don’t have the details as to what Kashuv actually said, whether or not he ever took responsibility prior to his having been accepted to Harvard, etc., I reserve judgment on this matter. It’s easy to rush to judgment one way or another, but absent material facts it’s prudent to avoid judging a matter that might well depend on those material facts.

        1. That’s a little extreme.

          But it’s a pretty good lesson in long-term consequences of ones actions, isn’t it – and why acting with restraint and foresight are better than doing so under emotional impulse or ‘trying to be cool.’

            1. Hogg got admitted. Were his grades acceptable? Hogg has used some – um – salty language himself.

              1. The article concerns Kashuv. AT provided critical information that revealed that Kashuv wouldn’t fit Harvard’s criteria for admission had the University been aware of that information when he applied. To date, there’s no evidence that Hogg had engaged in similar conduct regardless of how one feels about his opinions on public issues.

                1. Hogg’s behavior is certainly offensive whether I agree with him or not. This is certainly about Hogg and others who are or have been admitted to Harvard.

            2. And #2, if he’s being insincere about all this.

              Is he apologizing because he was wrong? Or is he apologizing because he was caught?

            3. It’s also possible the University violates #1, 2, 3, 4 frequently with regards to Conservatives on campus.

                1. oh shut it with your “safe space” BS! You have no sense of fairness or justice just like the average leftist! And more importantly, you belittle those that call for justice and fairness and we’re not talking about “social justice”, but individual fairness, justice and liberty. Without justice, the rules and laws are meaningless and the country descends into anarchy and chaos. Trump isn’t a cause, but an effect!

                2. First, “justice” and “fairness” are two different things.

                  Second, I condemn injustice all the time (often in the face of criticism from the right!).

                  Third, life isn’t fair get over it already.

                  Fourth, I belittle whiners – and man there’s a lot of whining coming from the right lately.

                  Fifth, no rules or laws were broken.

                  Sixth, I haven’t seen anarchy or chaos break out yet. (So take a pill already.)

                  Seventh, what does the orange clown have anything to do with any of this?

            1. That was like twelve outrages ago. Americans don’t have the attention span to kee

              *turns on Netflix*

      1. Thanks for this information, AT. I didn’t have those details. Obviously repeated use that term would put him outside of what Harvard seeks when it admits students. Its website states, “What sort of human being are you now? What sort of human being will you be in the future?” Use of such language, not in a single emotional outburst, but on repeated occasions strongly suggests he did not measure up.

        1. The interesting aspect of it to me is the difference between now and a few decades ago, and how people (especially young people) have failed to change along with the times.

          I’m sure most everyone has had a youthful indiscretion or two that they’re not proud of – but the difference between then and now? Then, said indiscretion wasn’t recorded in virtual stone for the rest of time. Our pasts existed mainly in memory, not digitally recorded on multiple servers across the globe.

          I don’t know about anyone else, but I saw this coming right around the time Myspace was taking over Geocities as the dominant force on the internet. Some folks call me paranoid, but as I started to see the data mining industry grow I knew it was time to turn and run the other direction.

          Instead, most folks decided to run toward it – and they put a camera and microphone and GPS tracker in their pockets, an Alexa to listen in their homes, a dozen clubs and cards and programs to track spending habits, and volunteered every stray thought and opinion they had to the cloud.

          We did this to ourselves. And now it can be used against us.

          1. I’ve seen kids (black and white) calling each other that term in a fun/joking way, so context makes a big difference. Almost all the rap music uses that language so when kids are exposed to that garbage, we shouldn’t be surprised when they use it with each other.

              1. I didn’t say he was “making a rap video”. I said he was probably exposed to it and the kids pick up from their environments. Are you an idiot or are you intentionally misstating everything I say?

                1. I’m calling out your bullshit rationalizing of a guy calling his black classmates “n****rjocks.”

                2. How old are you? You’re obviously out of touch with reality. Kids call each other worst names these days. You think he’s the first one to apply to Harvard who has used that term? If the school had a sense of fairness and justice and applied the same scrutiny on other kids, Harvard would be empty.

                3. Kids call each other worst names these days. You think he’s the first one to apply to Harvard who has used that term?

                  How many of them have it etched in virtual stone?

                  If the school had a sense of fairness and justice and applied the same scrutiny on other kids, Harvard would be empty.

                  Well, A) they don’t HAVE to have a sense of fairness; and B) there was no injustice committed.

                  You’re not going to make another entitlement argument, are you? To college admissions this time?

                4. Entitlement my ass–IT’S MY FREAKING TAX MONEY THAT GOES TO THESE DAMN SCHOOLS! So shut it!

    1. David Hogg was accepted. The Admissions Committee put a lot of thought into that acceptance.

  35. Wow sometimes I am amazed on this site. It doesn’t even say what he said and if you looked into it it wasn’t just one instance of saying something stupid. And I love how they say when he was 16, the comments were made barely 2 years ago

  36. Did Singer have one last Hollywood star kid he needed to get into Harvard to make good on the $500 million endowment pledge? Someone had to go. Guess it was this kid who got the short straw.

    Check out who got the last slot in the freshman class …. and why.

      1. What this guy said was not only not politically correct but full on racist. And he said the staff many times over a long period of time.

  37. “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.”

    Are you freaking kidding me? Someone should have advised this kid that Conservatives should never apologize and bow before the leftist gods. It just gives them more reason to trash you more!

    And why are people so obsessed over these far-leftist Ivy League indoctrination centers? All you have to do is look at Congress and its incompetence to realize how Ivy Leagues are bad for your brains.

  38. I wonder how many leftists they kicked out for supporting BLM when they were promoting the killing of police officers.

      1. @dr-strangelove I don’t know….you’re really putting yourself at risk there when it’s a 100% chance that you’re right. 😀

          1. @dr-strangelove LOL, that’s a lie if I ever heard one, but when you’re usually right you can throw caution to the wind.

  39. Obviously Harvard thinks it’s immune from outcomes like Oberlin just got hammered with. Hate to tell Harvard but Oberlin thought that they also were too big to punish for discrimination against conservatives. And blatant discrimination is EXACTLY what Harvard is engaged in. This has absolutely nothing to do with what Kyle said when he was 16. If all of Harvard’s student population were held to that kind of scrutiny then there’d be no one left to attend that school.

    1. Well you see he was just one of many, of course – but they needed someone to make an example out of for all the rest.

      Is the line they’ll use.

  40. Why am I not surprised? Honestly though, why bother to give hard earned dollars to some of these indoctrination centers? He’d probably be better trained and equipped by going to a place like Hillsdale. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

  41. Why give your money to a Leftwing indoctrination factory? Go to Hillsdale or Liberty instead and save money on a better education.

    1. @grumpenstein That’s funny! Great minds think alike. I posted my comment and then viewed the new ones and we said the same thing! 😎

  42. How embarrassing for Harvard and Leftists everywhere. If they had shame. The *ussy patrol grows by the day.

  43. Why would this young conservative even want to go to Harvard? It ain’t what it used to be and now only retains a name. Go to Hillsdale College, where you will get a better education and not be subjected to politically correct nonsense.

      1. It’s coming soon. It’s already here in an unofficial capacity. We opened the door when we started trading our privacy for Likes.

  44. There’s that double-standard again. I’m telling you folks, there’s no stopping it. You can whine and cry about it until you’re blue in the face, but the only way to defeat it will be to rise above it.

    This is why we need more Mike Pence on the right, and less Donald Trump. Unassailable character.

    And for pete’s sake, keep off social media. Leftists have shown over and over that they’ll scour the bowels of history to find something to use against you. This is the same advice I give to people dealing with cops. Keep your mouth shut. Don’t do their job for them. Don’t give them anything to work with or use against you. Because they will. F*ck them. Don’t serve yourself up on a platter for cops OR leftists.

    1. It doesn’t matter if its Mike Pence. Do you remember how Mitt Romney the choirboy was made to sound like an animal abusing nazi?

      It doesn’t matter at all how “well behaved’ the conservative is, they will never be anything other than racist, sexist homophobes to the left.

      1. Same with Brett Kavanaugh. But the only way to take the wind out of their sales is by unimpeachable character. It’s the only way, short of killing them.

        And we don’t want that latter future.

        1. “Same with Brett Kavanaugh. But the only way to take the wind out of their sales is by unimpeachable character.”

          @atomicsentinel keep those contradictions coming! Leftists don’t care about character–you rightly elude to that above using Romney/Kavanaugh as examples.

          Jesus had unimpeachable character and he was crucified for it! The left will do the same with any Conservative that challenges their power in any way!

          1. I forget, was BK appointed to the bench, or did we send him to jail for being the national rape gang leader.

            1. He was barely confirmed, but that’s not the point you were making. You said having unimpeachable character takes the wind out of their sails, but that’s been proven demonstrably false! There is no stopping them–they will find something–anything. Cruz had unimpeachable character, and yet during the primaries they despised him more than Trump! They made fun of his wife, his looks and even his daughters!!! That’s the left for you! You give them far too much credit!

              1. Did Ted Beard have anything in his past or present that could be used against him?

                Or were they just obviously shitty and making things up, like they did with BK?

                Because there’s a difference between having skeletons in your closet vs people claiming there are ghosts there.

                1. Most of the time, you don’t know what you’re talking about either, so don’t worry about it. All I know is your argument got smashed to pieces and you couldn’t come back with a good response.

                2. I don’t even know what your argument is, let alone how it smashes anything. Are you even replying to my posts, because I think you may have gotten confused somewhere along the line.

    2. @atomicsentinel Watch your language–you aren’t being a good example for aspiring RINOs

    1. And there’s not much we can do about it. That’s the ugly reality. We pretty much have to let it happen. They’re never going to stop themselves, and they’re always going to dial it up another notch. Mark my words, next up is Social Credit Scoring. And unless we’re willing to actually go to literal war about it – which we’re not – the alternative is that we have to learn how to survive despite it.

      Take the lessons from Orwell, Huxley, Rand, and Bradbury – not the warnings. Learn how to fly under the radar.

      1. Social credit scoring? If a person ain’t willing to go to the mattresses over that? That person doesn’t deserve freedom. Being a *itch will fit perfectly.

        1. They won’t, ryan. You might. I might. But most folks? They’re not going to take up arms and attack their own government. Not when they have bills to pay and mouths to feed and netflix to binge watch.

          And where would they start? Who’s the first person that dies in the revolution? A liberal? A tax collector? A cop? A bureaucrat? A politician? Who’s willing to take that first shot?

          It’s fine to fantasize about putting on a tri-corner hat and spilling blood for freedom – but the reality is that most people just won’t.

  45. “Ivy League” means “liberally deranged” now. I would avoid these cesspools at all costs – which is a play on words because not only do they suck (yes they do) but they’re also WAY overpriced.

  46. Like @renny below, I was wondering what he said too, then I realized, what does it matter? He was an unknown 16 year old kid, no matter how stupid or vile his words were (and I doubt it was as bad as implied, but even if) they were only words. He didn’t kill anyone, assault anyone, break any laws. Kids Say Dumb Things. Often very hurtful. Wow, alert the media.

    But what Harvard has now done to him is unbelievable. In fact, I might even say unprecedented. This is so beyond anything I have ever heard of regarding admissions I can hardly believe it.

    You know what, Kyle? They may have done you a great big favor. You will work something out and your future is bright. You are much too good for the likes of Harvard. They don’t deserve you.

    Parents, are you paying attention?

    1. then I realized, what does it matter?

      Let’s not be disingenuous. If it had been Hoggboy for his comments, folks would be spiking a football.

      Kids Say Dumb Things. Often very hurtful. Wow, alert the media.

      That’s precisely what happened.

      But what Harvard has now done to him is unbelievable. In fact, I might even say unprecedented.

      Denying admissions to a student they decide isn’t “Harvard material” (as the phrase goes) is unprecedented? I’m pretty sure they’ve denied, even rescinded admissions, before.

      They may have done you a great big favor.

      On that we agree.

      You will work something out and your future is bright. You are much too good for the likes of Harvard.

      Well, except for the racism. That could be a long-term problem for him.

  47. War against Conservatives is now leaking into all aspects of our lives. Now conservative children are being attacked for acting like children. #Fascism on the rise in America.

  48. Dear Kyle you don’t want to go there. Get in touch with Mike Rowe be different from the rest of the pack. Learn a trade, make a fortune, laugh all the way to the bank with those Harvard fools in your rear view mirror.

    1. He wants to run for office some day and having a Harvard degree is a plus. I could imagine he has dreamed of going to Harvard for a very long time only to have the fascist left sink his dream.

      1. Arguably, he sank his own dream the minute he made a bad judgment call about what to post on the internet about his classmates.

        But nah f that, he shouldn’t be judged for his actions. Blame the leftists!

      2. Well he can let that dream go not going to agree that the ” fascist left” sunk his dream that sounds like something the left say blaming someone else for their actions and consequences. It would not be the end of the world for him @cheetobuster if he sucked it up, grew up, and learned a trade. Even IF Harvard let him in look at all the begging he has done WTH would you want to go there when you’d probably be forced out at their earliest convenience/opportunity. His parents need to have a long talk with him and if they decide to sue well pass the vomit bucket getting tired of all this.

  49. Wow sometimes I am amazed on this site. It doesn’t even say what he said and if you looked into it it wasn’t just one instance of saying something stupid. And I love how they say when he was 16, the comments were made barely 2 years ago

      1. What this guy said was not only not politically correct but full on racist. And he said the staff many times over a long period of time.
