Harvard is an entirely antisemitic university. The president says soothing words to her Jewish audiences and does not have the internal fortitude to punish the little monsters that the American educational system has created, and her university nurtures.
If there were any positive outcomes of the Covid disaster—disease and response—it might be that parents became aware of what their children were being taught. Parents casually walking behind their kids while the latter were “learning” via Zoom heard discussions of sexual orientation, the US as a terrible country, and the demented concepts of intersectionality that made those parents and their kids the bad guys. The revolution against school boards started after the Covid lockdowns as parents realized that the educational system was bending their children’s minds and filling them with gross lies and distortions.
The pinnacle of American education is the university. The US has no shortage of colleges and universities. Still, with few exceptions, all of them are left-wing bastions of American hatred, white person hatred, and a distorted understanding of history and America’s role in it. Universities consistently poll at over 90% donations to Democrats, and self-identification is overwhelmingly as liberal or progressive. In my very first Harvard lecture, a professor lamented the lack of age diversity at the university—all of the students were in their early twenties, as opposed to during the time of the GI Bill when there was an extensive range of ages and experiences associated with returning soldiers who went to college at Uncle Sam’s expense. Today’s colleges can boast students from all fifty states and dozens of foreign countries, but there is virtually no intellectual diversity based on polling. What does it help if people from Nebraska and Alaska, as well as Italy and Australia, all support a completely open border and reparations for blacks, which ostensibly would include billionaires Tiger Woods and Oprah Winfrey? The left is obsessed with color, and maybe last name and their concepts of diversity are literally skin-deep. Joe Biden made that clear when he said that his choice for Supreme Court would be a black woman. What happened to the best candidate? What happened to meritocracy? The left does not believe in it, only in victimhood and reverse bigotry, which is bigotry.
Townhall, kindly let me share a letter that I sent to the current president of Harvard University, Claudine Gay. President Gay is completely incompetent. Students at Harvard and other universities are actively promoting the genocide of the Jewish people in Israel. “From the river to the sea…” can only mean killing all of the Jews and replacing them ostensibly with Palestinian Arabs. As seen from the violence at the University of Michigan on Saturday, the students—emboldened by a lack of any punishment—are becoming more aggressive and violent. Their calls for Israel’s eradication or a ceasefire to benefit Hamas in their eyes, justify whatever means they apply against school administrations, police, and, of course, Jewish students.
The absurdity of gays and trans marching with the same Islamists who would throw them off of rooftops to mark parking spaces below is lost on what must be the dumbest generation in American history. They refuse to understand the history of the Israel-Palestinian fight, and they’ve reached a point of denying that an attack occurred on 10/7, or yes, it occurred, but Israel instigated it, or there may have been an attack, but women were not raped, and no babies were beheaded, etc. Even when the videos come from Hamas, the clueless “cultural warriors” will always bend the facts against the Jews. My lawyer and others have pointed out that Me Too and other women’s groups have said nothing about Israeli women being raped, murdered, or taken into captivity where they are suffering who knows what horrors. Oh, they’re just Jews—who cares?
Below is a letter I once again sent to the supposed president of Harvard, and again, she did not respond. Harvard, in allowing Muslim and left-wing students to run free to express their wish for the death of the Jews, is a fully antisemitic institution. The Harvard Crimson, independent of the university but no less leftwing in its writing, should change its name to Der Sturmer. I feel sorry for the Jewish students who started or returned in the Fall and were oblivious to the hatred just under the surface of the manicured campus. There were no doubt missed signs. Articles in the Crimson blaming Israel for Palestinian terror; new groups making antisemitic statements on their websites. But then came a massacre of Jews, and the hatred exploded like a volcano, and Ms. Gay and her equally neutered colleagues for five weeks have refused to hold the Jew-haters accountable. This is ultimately their dream—the intersectional teaching of three decades jumping from the page to the protest line: the oppressed Palestinian (terrorists) against the oppressing (murdered) Jews! If Harvard professors could, I would imagine that many of them would join the protesters, of whom they are no doubt quite proud for showing those Jews what they think of them.
Below is the letter. I would not send a dog to Harvard or any American university until they are completely taken apart and rebuilt. How long before Ten Thousand Men of Harvard is replaced with the Horst Wessel Song or Harvard Uber Alles? Maybe the Harvard Corporation should be taking measurements for black outfits with eagles and swastikas.

You were right. The title "President" is not appropriate for you.
I knew that you would not respond to my more recent notes. I am not some heavy donor who needs entertaining or some "thought leader" who needs to be kept on the Crimson side. Just one of tens of thousands of Harvard graduates, a little dot on the Harvard canvas.
I have been asked by several people if you would tolerate students wearing Ku Klux Klan regalia, holding signs showing a noose, and chanting, "From the Mississippi to the Sea, the East Coast must be black-free." Would you let such vile protests take place on Harvard property? If black students said that they were terrified for their lives and some even refused to leave their dorm rooms while others were cornered in the Yard, would you run to form a committee to look into bigotry and discrimination? If you can tell me with a straight face that you would let such a protest take place, I will be incredulous. If you tell me that you would shut down such bigoted displays that hurt so many with the full force of Harvard police and whatever other resources you needed, then I would beg to ask why the Jews do not merit such a courtesy from you? There are hundreds if not thousands of books and treatises on antisemitism in Widener library, if you can get past the braying crowds calling for Genocide 2 for the Jewish people. Your job is not just to keep Jewish students and donors close; your job is to do the right thing--that is what "Veritas" demands. I am afraid that if you do not punish those whose actions go far beyond any "free speech" standard, you will join the other post-Derek Bok mediocrities who never rose to greatness as presidents of what once was the finest university in the world. I have only met one person in my life who had never heard of Harvard, and fortunately she introduced me to my wife.
As is well documented, Jews marched with and supported blacks during the civil rights movement of the 1960's. Blacks have never supported Jews in great numbers in our times of need. There have always been exceptions, but for the most part large black organizations have never stood with the Jew when his future was in danger. I come from Chicago and remember Rev. Jackson's "Hymie Town" and of course Louis Farrakhan praising Hitler or Al Sharpton leading a pogrom against the Jews of Crown Heights. The original BLM charter called Israel an apartheid state, and I wrote to your predecessor about a Palestinian American rower who used his Harvard position to spread lies about Israel killing babies at a BLM rally in Washington. Some Israeli rabbis are telling Jews to leave America. I would suggest that Jewish students should leave Harvard as the administration wishes them well but will not act against those who have expressly called for their injury. I had thought of returning to interviewing students here on behalf of Harvard, but I would not wish to be culpable for sending a Jewish student to a place where a crazed fellow student in a keffiyeh can freely call for the death of my Israeli student and his family.
Leadership sometimes demands making unpopular decisions. Being forceful when hatred has taken over the campus is needed today. Cowardice is something best left for Yale.

If you go down there watch out for the lovers, muggers and thieves.
I have my issues with my alma mater, U of Chicago, but they were Jewish-friendly, with lots of Jewish instructors, (I had several, and some who might have been, names like Kass, Weiss, and Tarcov). No shortage of Jewish students, either. Half my floor was Jewish and I was the only “goyim” in the car when four of us took a road trip to New Haven for apizza in January.
Harvard isn’t the only educational institution on the Charles. There’s a whole string of them.
From Birkenstocks and “I Go To College” T-shirts to Burkas, brownshirts and jackboots.
And don’t drink that dirty water. Look what it has done to the Harveys.
Harvard was antisemitic for most of its history, only relenting for the few years after WW2. For a long time now it has openly discriminated in admissions, hiring, and promotions... against Jewish people, against visibly Christian people, against Asians, and most recently against heterosexual folks.
It is a sickening place. Alas, a once-great college, too. It now needs a thorough clean out. Thinking Hercules at the Aegean Stables.
This major cabal of leftist ideology has over $50 Billion in endowments. IMO, NO government funding for scholarships, endowments, chairs, groups, grants, etc. should be allowed. They need to start spending their own money instead of tax dollars.
Any college or university that is not proJewish is teaching stupidity.
To find a college or university in MA that is NOT anti-Semitic is virtually impossible...
Yes, I have a BS from MIT and a PhD from Harvard.
Neither university has acquitted itself well over the Hamas crisis, even though the president of MIT is Jewish and from an excellent biology research background.
Unlike MIT president Sally Kornbluth, Harvard president Claudine Gay IS completely incompetent! She was hand-picked by Penny Pritzker, the bidenite sister of the corrupt Illinois Governor. To be fair to Ms. Pritzker, Ms. Gay had been a faculty dean before being elevated to president. So there are others who are complicit in Ms. Gay’s high position at Harvard.
The pro-Hamas demonstration at MIT was much worse than that at Harvard, because the savages blocked the main entrance of MIT, and activity harassed Jewish faculty and students. Ms. Kornbluth, despite her high qualifications, let the savages off with very light punishment, instead of expelling them and making MIT safe.
As a visibly Christian (at that time a Lutheran-—now Orthodox) student at Harvard, I regarded Harvard as a mainly Jewish institution! So it is surprising how antisemitic it has become. But there were no visible muslims at Harvard when I was there. And now the Lutheran church associated with Harvard is led by a “gay” woman pastor with connections with the Palestinian Lutheran church in the Holy Land.
I’m sure that Harvard—besides being antisemitic—is even more anti-Christian than it was when I was there. May our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ bring conversion to both Harvard and MIT, and use the current bad situation there to make that happen!!
