Activist: White People Should Kill Themselves to Atone For ‘White Privilege’ (Alex Jones’ Infowars): “Student debate highlights shocking anti-white racism at Harvard University”
Good heavens! What’s going on at Harvard?
The answer: Nothing whatsoever.
Despite the implications of the inflammatory deceit, misrepresentation and outright lies in the above online stories (and others):
- Harvard students said nothing about suicide at all. The esteemed university was hosting a debate competition, and the statements that sparked this foolishness were made by debaters from the University of West Georgia
- No Black Lives Matter activists were involved.
- The statements about white suicide were not made in the context of activism, or is an attempt to promote suicide.
- The “debate” was a formal collegiate competition held at Harvard.
- The debaters were advocating an assigned position, which is what happens in a debate competition. This wasn’t like a candidates “debate.” The debaters’ arguments did not necessarily have any relationship with their real opinions or positions. Scholastic debating is designed to highlight advocacy skills.
- Harvard wasn’t covering up anything. College students assigned to advocate controversial propositions in a competition should not have to see their statements exploited for political smear value for the rest of their lives. Nobody has the right to see this video.
- Most ludicrous of all, the debate competition took place in 2012! That’s right: before Black Lives Matter existed. Before the current political correctness and racial divisiveness outbreak in colleges across the country.
The entire story was manufactured to suggest something happened that didn’t, and to enrage and frighten the pathetically uninformed patrons of these far-right sites. I suppose, given the unprofessional and hysterical tone of these virtual rags on a daily basis, that the authors of the deceptive pieces might really misunderstand the academic activity called “debating,” perhaps because their own college diplomas came from matchbook cover special offers.
The whole point of debating competitions is to challenge students to advocate a proposition that they don’t believe in personally. I was on a debate team that had to advocate Communism as the “fairest” form of government. I was in junior high at the time. If there was a video, Alex Jones would headline this after school lark as “Kiddie Communists Indoctrinate Fellow Students In Massachusetts Suburb!”
The stories, in short, are complete fabrications—lies. This is not news, and the “facts” have been intentionally framed and distorted to to fit a political agenda.
Anyone who follows any of these sites is actively involved in making themselves stupid. A website that publishes a fake story like this should have no readers at all.
