Harvard Rescinds Offer to a Conservative For Comments Made as a Sixteen Year Old

Kyle Kashuv is a survivor of the Parkland High School shooting. He is also a conservative and unlike some of the other prominent survivors has advocated for second amendment rights.

Harvard University admitted Kyle into its Class of 2023 just a few months ago. But then comments Kyle made as a sixteen year old, prior to the shooting, surfaced. There is no reason to relive those comments here. They were the inappropriate comments of a sixteen year old that someone wanted to use to hurt him.

Progressives blew up the story. Kyle fessed up, owned them, and apologized for them. He is not the boy he once was. Having survived a mass shooting, Kyle is changed.

But today Kyle is informing people that Harvard has rescinded its offer to him because of those comments he made as a sixteen year old.

That is unfortunate and problematic. Kyle apologized and is clearly not the same person he was then. Harvard and progressive activists seeking to define Kyle by comments made at sixteen is part of a terrible trend of lacking grace and never allowing people to be defined by anything other than the worst public thing they’ve done.

Doing this does nothing but provide excuses for people to never apologize, never admit wrong, and most importantly it provides every incentive to double down. That’s not helpful to society.

Harvard should reconsider what it has done.
