This is a heartbreaking, must-read article about how bigoted and radical Yale has become.
The article is written by Aaron Haviland who is described thusly:
Aaron Haviland is a student at Yale Law School. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Cambridge, and he served in the Marine Corps.http://thefederalist.com/2019/03/04/thought-christian-constitutionalist-yale-law-school-wrong/
This must’ve been very difficult for him to live, let alone pen.
Long story short…Christians NOT welcome.
The Yale chapter of the Federalist Society invited Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) to speak on campus. They’re the law group that successfully represented Masterpiece Cakeshop at the Supreme Court.
That sent Yale’s social justice community into an uproar. It’s apparently a hate crime to invite a law group who’s argued cases in front of the Supreme Court to a law school for a discussion about their experiences.
From the article:
Earlier that Sunday morning, my friends and I sent out a school-wide email announcement about a guest speaker event for the upcoming week. A lawyer from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Christian legal group that has won numerous First Amendment cases at the Supreme Court, would be discussing Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
Given that ADF has been smeared as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, we expected some controversy. But what we got was over-the-top even by Yale standards.
Of course there were the typical boycotts from every intersectional affinity group in the law school, but it got much worse than that.
In addition to the boycott, some students said people who supported ADF’s position should no longer be admitted to the law school. One student emailed a list of the Federalist Society board members (publicly available information) so students would know whom to “thank” for this event.
Every email announcement the Federalist Society sent out met a snarky, vitriolic response by progressive students. Members of the first-year class were routinely bullied by their peers. In one case, a student searched through the LinkedIn profile of a conservative classmate, saw the conservative had a connection to ADF, and shared that information with the entire class. Others then demanded a list of all law students who had connections to ADF.
The amount of vitriol and cyberbullying that came their way brought a couple of my classmates to tears. Some didn’t feel safe on campus. Those of us in our third year of study continued to count down the days to graduation.
This harassment has become almost routine and takes place with the full knowledge of the school administration. Occasionally, the administration steps in and releases a statement about the importance of civility and community. Yet the threats and intimidation persist, and the perpetrators feel no consequences.
Read the whole thing. It’s a tragedy that will touch all of us as these elitist bigots make their way into our culture.
Mental note…DO NOT HIRE YALE GRADUATES FOR ANYTHING.
The silver lining is that the legal profession is predicted to be ‘fundamentally transformed’ by AI, so hopefully most of these racial graduates will have to learn to code.
