(the Harvard Students) learn little more than to carry themselves
handsomely…which might as well be acquired at a dancing school. From thence
they return as great blockheads as ever…only more conceited.
One of the most oft repeated myths
in America is the assertion that somehow Harvard University is peopled by super
intellects, both among students and faculty. This belief is constantly
reinforced by the media, who seem ignorant beyond all reason and who repeat
their own propaganda again and again.
Harvard University was named after
John Harvard, a British clergyman, who visited the unnamed Boston college in the
early 17th century and left a small legacy in his will to assist the
college. John Harvard was in no sense a scientist, author, or contributor to
American culture. He died at age thirty.
Today, Harvard University is
constantly portrayed as the intellectual center of the universe, and its
students and faculty are the beneficiaries of media propaganda on their behalf.
Therefore it is legitimate to review whether all that adulation is justified.
We begin by showing that money is
the prime mover of all of the Harvard promotion. Tuition at Harvard University
In addition, those who enroll
there and do not live nearby must pay for room and board, books, laboratory
costs, parking fees, and transportation. Evidently only a student whose parents
can afford $60,000 a year can enroll at Harvard. Consider that the average
income of most Americans is only about $49,000 annually and that many earn less
than that. A cab driver in New York City earns $29,000 and a waiter earns thirty
three thousand a year. Even someone who earns $100,000 a year can hardly afford
to send one child to Harvard, let alone two or three adolescents.
Harvard prides itself on its super
brilliant students. Yet, the real criterion of attendance there is money. The
rich send their children to academies or private high schools who guarantee that
their graduates, like George Bush, are admitted to Harvard. Similar financial
requirements exist at other so-called “Ivy League” schools, whose wealthy
students spend more in one year than the vast majority of Americans earn in two
Harvard is also the recipient of
large contributions from alumni who can afford to leave a million or more in
their wills. Indeed, there are a number of scholarships available to minority
students, whose presence is mainly promoted to whitewash the elitism there.
The pretense that the Harvard
faculty is a collection of Einsteins is defeated by the facts. Consider this.
Philo Farnsworth invented television but never attended Harvard. The automobile,
the computer, the airplane, the steam engine, the reaper, the sewing machine,
the telephone, the telegraph, motion pictures and innumerable other discoveries
and inventions were all achieved without Harvard. Most egregious was the
ridiculous conduct of some Harvard professors who questioned the discovery of
the polio vaccine by Dr. Jonas Salk because Salk was employed at the University
of Pittsburgh and not at Harvard.
It may well be true that there was
a time when the Harvard faculty allowed free debate and free speech in their
classrooms and on the campus. Today that is no longer the case. Now so-called
“liberals” prohibit the expression of opinions other than those labeled
“liberal.” Only radical Marxists are appointed to the faculty, and Jews,
both students and faculty, ae harassed and demeaned. Anti-Jewish hate, thinly
disguised as anti-Israel, is mandatory at Harvard, as faculty and students
demand the boycott of all Jewish owned business.
Harvard has been the intellectual
home of Cornell West, an academic politician who taught there and at Princeton
and other universities on the grounds of being a philosopher. When the president
of the university, Lawrence Summers, asked West for his publications before
granting him tenure, it turned out that West had edited a few books by
reprinting journal articles written by others. He also had written a number of
articles ranting against perceived racial injustices but could not produce even
one scholarly achievement. Having been denied tenure, West taught briefly at
Princeton and other institutions and spent a good deal of his time denouncing
Jews. This bigotry did not prevent Harvard from rehiring the discredited West,
who is clearly unqualified to be found on any academic faculty.
Indeed, there are professors at
Harvard who have achieved much. Like all universities, Harvard does include some
outstanding scholars. Yet the majority are pensioners of the university who loaf
on their tenured cans while bragging that they are so much more, oh yes, so much
more than all the other American faculties together.
Because appointments to faculty positions at Harvard and almost all other
colleges and universities are determined by the political opinions of the
candidates and not by competence and scholarship, mediocrity and poor
performance are nevertheless rewarded as long as the faculty member rants
against racism, hates Jews, and engages in an assault against the Constitution
in an effort to destroy freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the
press, and the right to assemble, and participates in the assault on the 2nd
amendment concerning the right to bear arms. Fascism, now labeled liberal by the
fascist media, rules American higher education, not only at Harvard but also the
University of California.
The University of California was
once the home of some outstanding contributors to science and advances in all
areas of the academic endeavor. Moreover, students were taught to respect
differences of opinion and to defend the right of everyone to practice his
religion, participate in his ethnic heritage, and express his views.
Now, in the 21st
century, all these conditions which once made the University of California a
great institution have been eradicated by religious hate, political assault on
our Constitution, and the introduction of un-American activities by foreign
students and bigoted professors who spend more time threatening American Jews
than learning anything.
The arrival of numerous
anti-Jewish Muslim students and faculty at the university has made it almost
impossible for Jewish students to study at the University of California. Jews
who came to learn and study are threatened with physical assault, are excluded
from all student activities, are denounced in the classroom, and harassed on the
campus. The large number of Muslims there follow the teaching of the Koran, the
Muslim scripture which tells Muslims to kill all Jews. “A Muslim walked past a
rock which spoke to him and said ‘there is a Jew behnd me, go and kill him.’
So the Muslims walked behind the
rock and killed the Jew”. Like the Nazi killers of the 1930s and forties,
Muslims want to murder all Jews. Their imams teach that doctrine ad the numerous
Muslim students, not allowed by American law to engage in mass murder, instead
rant anti-Jewish hate. Like Hitler, their idol, Muslims boycott all Jewish
business establishments and seek to enlist all Americans in failing to buy
anything manufactured or sold by a Jewish business. Some Muslims have already
killed Americans by terror attacks on the World Trade Center and by other means.
At the University of California,
Muslims are free to spread hate, as the administrators will not protect Jewish
students from the hate because the Muslims pay large sums in tuition, and money
is more important to the California politicians and university bureaucrats than
the safety of Jewish students.
Because students at our
universities are taught to hate Jews, it is certain that in a few years these
bigots will be members of our government. That makes it entirely possible that
American Jews will be forced to leave this country, as the haters and so-called
“liberals” will have abandoned the Constitution as SHARIA law governs
America and Islam becomes the only religion allowed in the “land of the free
and the home of the brave.”
