“The great surprise is that WASPs, the legendary descendants of the Founding Fathers, have lost their privilege, or even their fair chance to success. Unz proves that a smart Christian American boy of English or German parentage has ten times less chance to get into these crème-de-la-crème universities than an average Jewish boy. This very unfair way of forming tomorrow’s elites has been made possible by the sheer nepotistic networking of the universities’ admission offices. Clannishness, the Jews were (justifiably) accused of… Provided that these Ivy League colleges are the only sure-fire way into American elites, into best jobs and into good and important positions, this biased enrolment guarantees the Jews their position of the top dog well into next generation.” – Israel Shamir, “Unz goes nuclear” – The Unz Review, Dec. 6th, 2018.

“It seems preposterous that a group of progressive ideologues, all in positions of power at a university, could target a student, fabricate claims against her, subject her to a Kafkaesque secret trial, ruin her life, and then, when busted, publicly apologize to her only to turn around a year later and sue her for damages caused to them.” (Emphasis in original) – Barrett Wilson, “Professors who falsely accused and harassed Lindsay Shepherd are now suing her?” – The Post Millennial, Dec. 28th, 2018.

“Freedom of expression is essential to the pursuit of truth, the advancement of learning and the dissemination of knowledge. All members of the University community have the right to freedom of expression, which includes the right to examine, question, advocate for and comment on any issue without reference to prescribed doctrine” – From the University of Western Ontario’s free speech policy, quoted by Cosmin Dzsurdzsa in “University of Western Ontario releases draft of free speech policy to comply with Doug Ford’s mandate” – The Post Millennial, Oct. 16th, 2018.

“An Open Letter, signed by over 200 academics including 78 at Cambridge, and which anyone could sign online, demanded the inquiry… ‘A careful consideration of Carl’s published work and public stance on various issues, particularly on the claimed relationship between ‘race’, ‘criminality’ and ‘genetic intelligence’, leads us to conclude that his work is ethically suspect and methodologically flawed,’ the Open Letter opined. Signers were ‘deeply concerned that racist pseudoscience is being legitimized through association with the University of Cambridge’ – meaning they had no interest, obviously, in whether or not Dr Carl’s findings were empirically accurate’.” – Lance Welton, “Neurotic Leftists mobbing Noah Carl, un-pc Cambridge U. researcher – establishment Right dithers” – The Unz Review, Dc. 15th, 2018.
