“A few elements leap out at the attentive reader of the case. First, the College ignored several Student Non-Academic ‘Procedure’ requirements. They failed to inform the Vice-Provost of a pending investigation; they failed to provide Zaki with the complaints against him; and they failed to provide the identities of those who had lodged them, all running foul of the Procedure’s obligation to provide Zaki with ‘access to all documentary and other evidence…and knowing the identity of the complainants.’ To this day, Zaki has not seen the names of the actual complaints, which violates the foundational, age-old principle, audi alteram partem, the right to know the case against you.” – Barbara Kay, “Medical student expelled for refusing to change his personal beliefs” – The Post Millennial, November 3rd, 2020.

“Young liberals today have been so heavily indoctrinated by hordes of leftist professors that there is almost no hope of them ever ‘maturing’ into people capable of critical thought. The cold splash of reality that is life after college not only isn’t enough to shock them out of liberalism, but in fact not much of real life ever actually reaches them…” – H.P. Smith, “The true battleground is education” – American Thinker, November 17th, 2020.

“According to Zaki, Dr. Ripstein said that because Zaki holds a belief in the right to bear arms and the right to life, ‘I must support shooting up abortion clinics, support rape at gunpoint and support shooting those of a higher socioeconomic status.’ To all of these suggestions, Zaki says he voiced a horrified ‘No!’ Zaki says he was also accused of being homophobic, transphobic, and racist, all without any evidence.” – Barbara Kay, “Medical student expelled for refusing to change his personal beliefs” – The Post Millennial, November 3rd, 2020.

“A piece of paper became learning, which meant fraud on an industrial scale. That blacks embraced the idea that a diploma meant real learning made the fraud politically popular. America’s racial problems could be solved cosmetically. Social promotions made everybody happy and outsiders never saw the watered-down textbooks or exam papers. This kind of fakery became necessary for elected officials who claimed to have boosted graduation rates.” – Joseph Kay, “Terrible – but popular – ‘solutions’ to our racial problems” – American Renaissance, October 31st, 2020.

“Now five-year olds will learn about ‘social justice’ and have opportunities beginning in first grade to master ‘activism and action civics.’ Moreover, the evils of slavery will hardly be sugar coated so the children will encounter material revealing scenes of rape and pedophilia together with the currently trendy topics of substance abuse, immigration and LGBTQ issues. This is in addition to classroom discussions on how ongoing injustices continue to disenfranchise and oppress today’s descendent of slaves. Predictably, many local parents are outraged by this racialization and have threatened to withdraw their children.” – Robert Weissberg, “The civil rights movement goes into reverse” – Unz Review, October 29th, 2020.
