Harvard Student Newspaper Accuses College Republicans of Supporting White Supremacy for Endorsing Trump

Harvard Student Newspaper Accuses College Republicans of Supporting White Supremacy for Endorsing Trump

“it’s impossible not to see this endorsement as a provocation that willfully belittles other students’ identity and disregards their safety”

The College Republicans at Harvard did not back Trump in 2016 and the Harvard Crimson is having a meltdown over their change of heart.

Matt Lamb writes at The College Fix:

Harvard student newspaper editors: Trump supporters endorse ‘white supremacy’

The student paper at Harvard University has a message not only for the Ivy League institution’s College Republican chapter but by extension all supporters of President Donald Trump: Supporting Trump is the same as supporting white supremacy.

The editorial board of The Harvard Crimson wrote that message in an opinion piece published today after the school’s College Republican chapter came out in support of President Trump. The conservative student group reversed a stance taken by its members in 2016 to not endorse Trump, the first time the group had not endorsed the Republican nominee in the club’s 128-year history.

“Not only is it impossible to separate an endorsement of Trump from tacit approval of white supremacy,” the paper’s editors wrote, “it’s impossible not to see this endorsement as a provocation that willfully belittles other students’ identity and disregards their safety.”

“At a time when a Harvard instructor is being credibly accused of defending neo-Nazi groups like Identity Evropa, the Republican Club’s endorsement serves as a further reminder that our campus is not devoid of those who engage white supremacy,” the board argued, in reference to an instructor, David Kane, who allegedly wrote racist posts on a blog.

It even criticized the College Republicans for disrupting a narrative about “reasonable” Republicans (presumably meaning Republicans who refuse to support President Trump’s re-election).

“The Harvard Republican Club’s 2020 endorsement challenges the narrative of the ‘reasonable’ Republicans,” the board wrote, “perhaps most obviously young ones, who are educated at liberal institutions — are turning against the president in disdain.”

It does not portend well for critics of Trump’s style of politics, the editors wrote.

“As young elites make peace with and even come to embrace his style and politics, an important, scary truth emerges: the Republican Party’s Trumpian elements will continue long after he does.”

Harvard appears to have greatly outlived its usefulness.

    Agreed. They send me a request for donations every year, and each year I thoughtfully place their request in my circular file.

    Donating to Hillsdale makes more sense. Hillsdale hasn’t been overtaken by the left-wing Mob, and they actually need the money. They don’t accept funding (and the strings attached) from the government, so they are actually private and independent.

    I won’t even park my car in their yard any more.

In case these geniuses don’t realize it, a far better argument, backed up with FACTS, can be made that supporting Biden means supporting Black supremacy (BLM) and anti-white racism as well, not to mention supporting anti-Americanism (Antifa).

For those on the left, EVERYTHING that they don’t like is racist, white supremacist, and violent. Whenever they use these terms, it shows that they have no facts or logic to back up their statements.

Since they have clearly stated that anyone not supporting Democrats is ‘wrong’ they must be designated as a marketing tool for Democrats and de-certified as a newspaper.

An example of why we need to ban all Ivy League graduates from serving in government. Time to impose meaningful diversity.

“it’s impossible not to see this endorsement as a provocation that willfully belittles other students’ identity and disregards their safety”

It’s impossible to see this reaction as anything other than a reminder that the insane and deluded cannot perceive reality.
