Whiny Harvard Crimson crybabies tell conservatives not to enroll if they plan on bashing Harvard as too liberal
and therein prove that Harvard is too liberal
Aww, the staff of The Harvard Crimson is pretty sensitive about criticism of Harvard from conservative alums like Bill O’Reilly and Ted Cruz.
The thin-skinned editors warn conservatives who plan on bashing Harvard after graduation as being too liberal to stay away.
Grow up, you babies. Or, if you don’t want to grow up, then plan on a career in the mainstream media.
The story is attributed to “the Crimson Staff” which was obviously chosen to inoculate any single writer from blame.
Warning: Do Not Enroll
If you think Harvard is a revolutionary communist hotbed, don’t apply. If you think Harvard is full of “pinheaded” professors, don’t enroll. And if you think Harvard pollutes the minds of its students, don’t walk out of here with a degree—and certainly don’t get two.
You see, lately, there seems to be a pernicious trend of public figures—especially those on the right—falling in love with Harvard just long enough to benefit from its educational resources and, yes, its social prestige, before turning against our school. Just recently, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas affirmed his belief that Harvard Law School was, during his years as a student there, home to a cohort of “Marxists who believed in…overthrowing the United States government.”
In November, Fox News pundit and Harvard Kennedy School graduate Bill O’Reilly glibly referred to Harvard professors as “pinheaded” while implying that the Harvard community is morally suspect for its acceptance of Harvard College Munch, a group for students who share an interest in kinky sex. And last April, presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who holds a J.D. and MBA from our fine institution, lambasted President Obama for having spent “too much time at Harvard.”
Such episodes of treachery are apparently attempts to curry favor with the more anti-intellectual members of our body politic. Yet it is finally time that we say enough is enough. We at The Crimson urge anyone who plans on one day scoring political points by maligning Harvard to neither apply, enroll, nor graduate from this fine institution.
