‘Clearly A Witch Hunt’: Lefties Blame ‘Racism’ For Ouster Of Allegedly Plagiarizing Harvard Prez | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Embattled Harvard President Claudine Gay resigned on Tuesday, and many on the Left were quick to claim that her abrupt exit was clearly the result of racism.

    Gay's resignation came after she faced multiple accusations of plagiarism - and in the wake of her disastrous Capitol Hill testimony on campus anti-Semitism - which led to calls for her ouster from students groups and a host of others.

    But Gay insisted even on her way out the door that racism had fueled those criticizing her for allegedly plagiarizing sections of more than half of her published works - and her defenders lined up to toe the same party line on X.

    "This is a sad day for Harvard and academics. Please read the accusations against Dr. Gay for yourselves (see eg below)-you'll see this is clearly a witch hunt. When push comes to shove, institutions continue to readily throw Black women under the bus," complained Arghavan Salles.

    "The next president of Harvard University MUST be a Black woman," Marc Lamont Hill demanded.

    "Racist mobs won't stop until they topple all Black people from positions of power and influence who are not reinforcing the structure of racism. What these racist mobs are doing should be obvious to any reporter who cares about truth or justice as opposed to conflicts and clicks," Ibram X. Kendi posted. "Too often mainstream reporters join the racist mob or give it credibility-as they did in this case-just as they did a century ago."

    "Well, they got what they wanted from their well-executed plan," added "The 1619 Project's" Nikole Hannah Jones.

    "As an alumni, I am repulsed by the conditions at Harvard right now bc it signals what is happening to higher ed as a whole: Billionaire donors & the politically-connected weaponizing anti-semitism to smear and target the moral concerns & leadership of Black & POC people. Enough," Dr. Bernie Lim said.

    "This will validate and embolden authoritarian-style attacks on diverse, inclusive, and fair education, including manufactured populist outrage and elitist political/corporate interference with university decision-making. A new McCarthyism," said Bradford Vivian.

    "So what we've learned is: Bad-faith bigots pretending they're concerned about antisemitism will happily use women of color-especially Black women-as a scapegoat and lightning rod for large systemic issues," Celeste Ng complained. "And that people invested in maintaining those systemic issues will comply."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering the current overwhelming obstacles inflicting stress upon America's working class: rampant inflation; energy insecurity; supply chain turmoil; banking failures; foreign policy disasters; government corruption; (DEI) Diversity Equity Inclusion narrative, with WOKE extremes practiced; Climate Change ideology; intractable crime wave in Leftist cities; wide open border by executive design; a permanently discredited Legacy Media; failed or failing education industry, just to name a few of the many: Who should Americans blame?
  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
  Bloated, incompetent bureaucracy weaponized and poorly managed
  The electorate, US, for putting these fools in elected office that utterly fail

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.
