Congratulations Princeton, You Deserve This

September 22, 2020 |

Leftists want us to take them very seriously, up until the point they’re held responsible for what they say or do, and then they become like Gene Wilder in “Young Frankenstein”: “I was JOKING! Don’t you know a JOKE when you hear one?!!”

One delicious example came last week when Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber decided to engage in some fashionable virtue signaling by releasing an open letter declaring that "racism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton" and that "racist assumptions" are "embedded in structures of the University itself." This came after hundreds of Princeton faculty members released an open letter claiming that "anti-Black racism has a visible bearing upon Princeton’s campus makeup."

So, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos (hooray!) sent a letter to Princeton, announcing a federal investigation into the school’s admitted racist practices. It points out that since Eisgruber became president in 2013, Princeton has received over $75 million in federal funds by repeatedly representing to the government that it was in compliance with the ban on racist practices required under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The letter orders Eisgruber and a corporate representative of the university to appear under oath for questioning, to answer written questions about these admitted acts of racism, and to produce records related to them and to the school’s sworn (possibly perjurious) declarations that they do not engage in racism when they applied for grants.

Seems to me, Princeton has two options:

1. Admit they are racist and return the $75 million-plus any penalties for misrepresenting themselves on federal forms. Or…

2. Admit their president was just talking through his hat and engaging in empty public self-flagellation because that’s what liberals are expected to do these days: virtue-signal about racism, even though they don’t really mean it.

Either way, Congratulations Secretary DeVos for finally forcing these pompous phonies to put up or shut up.

    Seems to me everyone should be held accountable for their actions.... until Obama got into office, I thought everyone (except the black criminal element) was responsible for their actions. Now, however, it is plain that Democrats believe that they are above the law and that the only “good” white folks are either dead or are firmly entrenched behind b. l. m. (small letters intentional)

    Best laugh I've had all day! I only wish the Sec. had waited until Harvard, Yale, UC Berkeley, and pretty much all the other hotbed incubators of fascism cloaked as socialism chimed in with their own version of the same.

    Seems that by writing these letters focusing on Princeton and race, Princeton's president and faculty consider ones race important and therefore are racist. The school should quietly give the money back to the government and hope people forget this blackeye on the university. True bigotry drives these people. Honest and innocent people don't play these type of games.
