It stuns me that Curt can seem to be genuinely ignernt about truths that are inconvenient for adherents woke ideology. Curt is a world class Good German.
He denied the existence of the laptop as a vast right-wing conspiracy for the longest time. I'm still not certain that he acknowledges it.
Come to find out yesterday that Curt was apparently, genuinely, offended that OD and pb were saying that woke American progressives supported the behavior of Hamas fighters in raping innocent women and girls.
Well, Curt. There were, as po'd say, EFFINscores of raucous woke demonstrations and protests all across America supporting Hamas...attacking Israel...in the wake of the Hamas attack.
Well, gang, there's some backlash.
Harvard students scramble to take back support for letter attacking Israel as some CEOs look to blacklist them
A flurry of Harvard University students and groups are desperately trying to backtrack on their support of a letter blaming Israel for the mass slaughter of its own people by Hamas terrorists — as some business titans seek to blacklist them from future jobs.
Four of the initial 34 student organizations attached to the inflammatory statement have already withdrawn their support — while board members of other groups have quit to distance themselves.
Late Tuesday, 17 other Harvard groups joined around 500 faculty and staff and 3,000 others in signing a counter-statement attacking the other groups’ letter as “completely wrong and deeply offensive,” according to the campus paper, the Harvard Crimson.
Others in groups supporting the initial letter — which held “the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence” — quit while distancing themselves from any involvement.
The statement released by the Harvard Palestinian Committee no longer lists the more than 30 student groups that had originally signed on to the statement, but rather says: “This statement was co-authored by a coalition of Palestine solidarity groups at Harvard.
...the student organizations only seemed to have released their statements after billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman called for the university to release the names of the students in these groups so that they will not be hired by Wall Street.
“I have been asked by a number of CEOs if Harvard would release a list of the members of each of the Harvard organizations that have issued the letter assigning sole responsibility for Hamas’ heinous acts to Israel, so as to insure that none of us inadvertently hire any of their members,” Ackman, the billionaire founder of hedge fund giant Pershing Square Capital Management, wrote on his X social media account on Tuesday.
BTW, Curt, there's a link to an article on the offensive letter as well.
Oh. And. Yeah, Curt. The laptop is real.
