Some people don't actually have character to 'assassinate'. David Hogg is an opportunistic mouthpiece, and that is all. Harvard is welcome to him, IMO. Not likely worth their investment, but that's their choice.

You have posted your opinion in regards to 'character assassination' on several threads. Repeating it several times, does not make it true, however.

The two people you have used this talking point about, have nothing to do with the 2020 elections, or perhaps you are not aware of that.

I encourage the Democrats to put up a candidate who actually has a chance at gaining the WH, I honestly do. I would like to see someone who has positive plans for the USoA that can improve our position in the economic world, make strides in healthcare reform*, and revamp the regulatory structures on businesses.

*HC reform means addressing the underlying causes for the high costs of healthcare, not just promoting a 'one payer', insurance mandatory or Medicare for all HC.

Constructing a Winchester Mansion of evil intents and character defects for Sandmann using his "smug face" as the foundation is Grand Master level leftist character assassination.

Can't speak to the issue of Harvard substituting political activism for test scores in the admissions process so you resort to your usual tactic, just call them stupid.

Again, would you be OK with Harvard excluding you or your daughter in favor of a Conservative activist with sub average test scores?

Hoggy now claiming he's had 7 assassination attempts.

This dude is determined to stay in the limelight for as long as possible.

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says he's been target of 7 assassination attempts

Quote:
David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., massacre who has become a highly visible gun control activist, claims he has been the target of an assassination attempt seven times the past year.

Hogg, 19, told The Washington Post in an article published on Tuesday that the attempts to end his life came from people who are "misguided and misinformed of what we’re actually here to talk about."

Hogg was accepted to Harvard, yet he doesn't know the difference between 'threat' and 'attempt'????

Trying to make one's self relevant when the world has moved on from the person (shades of Bette Midler) is like a band past it's prime playing their 50 year reunion....

I sincerely hope that Harvard is able to educate Hogg. Nor should his student loan be forgiven, as he will need to pay every dime to a greedy, grasping institute of 'higher learning'.

I have to agree with you ol buddy. We DON"T need an investigation, and it IS lunacy to think that Harvard is anything but a liberal indoctrination college.

They will throw out all qualifications to get a hardcore liberal mouthpiece in their midst. Harvard isn't as much about getting an education, as it is getting a liberal propaganda education.

I hope they have room for people that are actually qualified.

What if Harvard were to tell you, Sorry Sloth, we can't take your daughter, David Hogg took her spot. I'm sure as a good Liberal, you would say, "it's OK, I understand".

Also, I like how you turn it around to make it sound as if the right is trying to bring down vocal anti gun people.
When in actuality, they are just showing people what Harvard is really about. Qualifications take a back seat to Liberal activism.

Harvard certainly didn't come to some epiphany about SAT scores NOT being "the be-all and end-all measurement". It's just very obvious that they are conditionally willing to sacrifice their high SAT score acceptance standards for the opportunity for championship level virtue signalling. You are a lefty that is all in on the agenda so you are blind to the cost of such compromise.

Congratulations on being so smart.

I believe that with high SAT scores as a qualification, it keeps out the riff raft that they feel doesn't represent HAVED ( I tried to spell the accent )

But with those qualifications you can still get in the people you want, and reject the people you don't. It is a special kind of segregation that people do not want to talk about.

That would be HAVAHD. Your welcome.

I can't for the life of me remember the numbers and percents, but some guy on a radio talk show the other day (yeah I know, good solid validation) was saying if admissions to certain ivy league schools was based on SAT scores and NOT fulfilling racial/demographic quotas, we would see a huge change in admissions.

So you could work your butt off, score top of the SATs, and be a shining academic star, but if you are a white middle class boy, your chances of being accepted, have dropped tremendously.

And people wonder why motivation is at an all time low.

That's true, I forgot about skin color and quotas. But I'm sure they are able to use the SAT to weed out any of those crazy conservatives with dark skin, and promote the skin colors that best reflect HAVAHD political beliefs.

Yes, HAVAHD does sound better, it gives it the demeaning snootiness it deserves.

HARVAD is doing everything they can to cheapen the value of a diploma from that school. I hope they continue to do so.
