"Harvard did not immediately respond to a request for comment."

Key phrase.

The Harvard guys see one of their own in the Boss. He will take over the Harvard Crisis Actors Department. He is a natural.

Mike said...

Two thing to put side by side:

Hogg's SAT was apparently 1270, well below the standard Harvard student.

Asian students are suing Harvard for rejecting well-qualified Asian applicants for, basically, cultural reasons.

Now we see the culture that Harvard prefers.

Darrell said...

It's either Harvard or the community college.

Ann Althouse said...

I'll just say it would not surprise me if Hogg were to announce that he's chosen to go to a different college.

Humperdink said...

Hogg is all style and no substance. Off to Harvard he goes. An adolescent white version of Ocassional Cortex.

Fernandistein said...

Everybody I know survived that horrific mass shooting that left 17 dead at a high school in Parkland, Florida, in February.

Makes their FBI quota (Hogg daddy)..

rhhardin said...

He'll be expelled for some insensitivity or other. Thare are other interest groups in control there than dead children afficianados.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Harvard has closed up shop for the Christmas break. No one around to “immediately” respond.

Hagar said...

Suspect AA has called it.

Gahrie said...

It's a good thing Hogg wasn't Asian...

Michael said...

Oh, he will go to Harvard and he will do fine notwithstanding his SAT score. Getting in is the hard part. Political Science at Harvard will be no more difficult than at Broward Community College.

gilbar said...

how will he pay for it? Go Fund Me?

narciso said...

Except they call it government over there.

Big Mike said...

Point of information. The eponymous David Hogg did not “survive the shooting.” He was not in the building where the shooting occurred at the time it occurred. The true survivor is Anthony Borges, who was shot five times blocking a door to protect other students, and who has survived his wounds. But Borges correctly blames the school administration (a monitor spotted Cruz on his way into the building, knew that Cruz was not allowed on campus with a backpack, much less a backpack and duffle bag but chose not to confront him nor to notify police) and the sheriff’s office (whose cowardly actions are well-documented) and not the NRA, so you don’t see TV cameras covering his every utterance.

How come?

steve uhr said...

People hate him because he is an effective leader.

iowan2 said...

Hogg is perfect for Harvard. He is already programed. The rest is fine tuning. He still has to learn about white privlege, toxic masculinity, The Patriarchy, etc. His feelz are in the right place.

Trump?

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

with that GPA and those test scores?

Oh right- they let Hogg is to groom him to be a Demcoratic Nazi.

DavidD said...

Harvard must not put much stock in grammar or spelling ability, let alone logic.

Nearly every Hogg tweet has some sort of grammar or spelling mistake.

Greg Hlatky said...

The next Enrico Fermi doesn't have to go to Harvard. The next Bill Kristol does.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

How many blacks, Hispanics and Asians were told no so Hogg, a sub-par student, could get the slot?

iowan2 said...

I haven't seen him lead anything. He has marched when and where others have told him to go and say what he was told to say. He has no followers. He is the lefts useful idiot. Created by the media, and will be destroyed by exactly the same media.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

Uhr - Hogg is an effective bully.

Francisco D said...

A business client (ex-Army officer) told me he grouped employees into a 2x2 matrix with HIGH/LOW on intelligence and motivation. You need to treat these employees differently in order to get their best performance.

HIGH Intelligence/High Motivation: Leave them alone and let them do their jobs.
HGH Intelligence/LOW motivation: This is where leadership comes in. Inspire them.
LOW Intelligence/LOW motivation: Provide plenty of structure, guidance and supervision.
LOW Intelligence/HIGH motivation: Put all your efforts into rooting these people out of your organization. They will run 100 mph in the WRONG direction!

Ocasio-Cortez and David Hogg strike me as LOW intelligence/HIGH motivation individuals who will be a disaster if they are given any power and responsibility.

Howard said...

Francisco, that's cucks talk. Power is taken, not given. Sounds like you are jealous of those who man-up

AMDG said...

Hogg didn’t let the crisis go to waste.

Sebastian said...

College admissions have turned into virtue signaling. Maybe they always were.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

The left can have Hogg.

He's all yours.

He's a repulsive sniveling little opportunistic jerk who dances on top of his dead peers and classmates to enhance his left-wing resume. Deep inside every leftwinger is an opportunistic Hillary Clinton.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

thread winner.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

I'd bet money that Hogg bullied the shooter. Considering his bully-the-Nation tour, on the backs of the dead, it would not be one bit of a surprise.


The local police totally dropped the ball in Florida that gruesome day, but we don't hear about that. We don't hear about the reforms needed on that end. No never.

Big Mike said...

Well, he certainly is an effective fund raiser — for the NRA.

Larry J said...

“Fernandistein said...

Hogg isn’t a survivor of that shooting. He was merely present on the campus. The survivors were those poor people who were shot but didn’t die.

Yancey Ward said...

You can only be an effective leader if you don't induce equal or greater reaction from your enemy. Hogg is what I would call an anti-leader- he is actually a more effective tool for the NRA than a actual effective opponent of it. He has no skills of persuasion- only preaches to the choir.

chickenlittle said...

Recall that David Hogg is so bad for the left that even Michael Moore had to take the mic out of his hand.

Ken B said...

Feel free to follow Uhr.

Amadeus 48 said...

Hogg has always hit me as a not-very-bright opportunist who climbed to prominence on the bodies of his dead schoolmates. He was in a different building at the time of the shooting and might as well have been in Tallahassee as in Parkland. He will be one of the least-able white students in his class. Congratulations, David.

JaimeRoberto said...

He'll get kicked out for sexual assault.

Fubar.N.Wass said...

Look forward to reading about what happens to Hogg when he mouths off to Cambridge townies. They don't take no crap...

rcocean said...

A SAT of 1270 is pretty damn low for an elite school, but I suppose Mr. Hogg scored very high on the verbal and not so high on the math portion.

Anyway, he'll fit right in.

MayBee said...

Interesting to see how being virulently left will get you all kinds of favors in this country.

The Drill SGT said...

Apparently he got 1270, when the average for the bottom quarter is 1460 and for the top quarter it's 1590

If I were pleading that Harvard Asian suit, I'd use him as a poster child.

Jim at said...

People hate him because he is an effective leader.

Only a moron would consider a snot-nosed, 18-year-old loudmouth as any sort of leader.

In addition, just what has this great 'leader' accomplished?

MayBee said...

Imagine being an 18 year old who leads a boycott against a television show because they criticized your SAT Score. Imagine being a person who follows that boycott.

Wow - I'd like to see more examples of "effective leaders" in your view. I hope that your statement is 'Sarcasm'? But if not, it is the religious bigotry of the Left!

Crazy Jane said...

You got the name wrong. It's Camera Hogg.

Gilbert Pinfold said...

BTW, at Harvard, it’s referred to as a “concentration” not a “major”. And the “concentration” is “Government”, not “Political Science”. Like our hostess, I suspect this is all BS—applicants with his scores don’t receive early admission; if they get in at all, it would be in the April decisioin round.

Static Ping said...

"Immediately respond" does sound quite fishy, does it not? That's basically someone called and no one picked up because they are all out for the Christmas holiday. That said, Harvard very well knew that admitting Hogg was going to open questions and they certainly could have prepared a statement to that effect, but apparently they chose not to do so. So while I normally consider such a half-baked attempt to get a comment to be poor form, in this case this was not a surprise and it has the markings of the university trying to dodge the issue. Let's be honest: 1270 is awfully low for a Harvard admission. I suspect that is low for a student athlete and probably is near or below the floor for a desperation diversity admission. According to prepscholar.com, a 1270 is average for schools like UMass, Drexel, and Syracuse. There's nothing wrong with those schools, other than what is wrong with higher education in general, but it ain't Harvard.

They don't follow boycotts.
They sign online petitions, make phone calls and send emails.

My daughter got 1420

She’s going to Arizona State

🤷🏼‍♀️

Bunkypotatohead said...

When he graduates Harvard he can be a barmaid like AOC did.

Freeman Hunt said...

"Asians hardest hit."

That is, assuming... well, we'll see.

Rae said...

Somebody may have punked him with a fake acceptance letter.

"I don't remember applying to Harvard, but woohoo!"

PB said...

Hogg calls himself a survivor. BS. You're not a survivor if a shooting unless you've been shot.

Assistant Village Idiot said...

@rcocean - I had the same thought about high verbal, low math. I have previously speculated that Obama's college career suggests the same. An affirmative action candidate with high SATs would not have settled for Occidental. Yet he later went to Columbia, then Harvard LS after they stopped testing for math and did fine.

Kansas Scout said...

Hogg is a classic case of grandiose hubris. The gods are standing by.
