Greg Gutfeld: Harvard DEI chief just indicted for 40 counts of plagiarism
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
Happy Wednesday everyone. So don’t look now, but the #MeToo movement is back, but this time, it’s not women under attack, it’s academic integrity and again, we look to Harvard, the DeVry of the East. They don’t know that DeVry. Believe me, that joke worked at the meeting. Sherri Ann Charleston, the university’s chief diversity officer, has just been accused of 40 counts of plagiarism in her PhD thesis and the only academic paper she published in her career. There would be more accusations of plagiarism, but she was too lazy to write more than one fake paper. Which begs the question, who was the last person to have an original idea at Harvard? John Adams, Al Gore, Barack Obama? You know, Barack must be sweating right now. Not for plagiarism. He just ate a really spicy dog.
Now, Charleston’s husband is also a professor and according to reports, her same publication even debunked the research he did in 2012. Wait, a woman who raised something her husband did from years ago. That’s not plagiarism, that’s marriage.
HARVARD DEI’S CHIEF OFFICER UNDER 40 COUNTS OF PLANNING, INCLUDING PICKUP FROM HER OWN HUSBAND: REPORT
INFORMATION: Say sexist!
TIRE: Or any married man.
Yeah, but coming on the heels of Harvard President Claudine Gay’s resignation for the same thing, the Charleston scandal looks like Harvard’s own academic version of the #MeToo movement. Suddenly, a suppressed truth is dragged kicking and screaming into the light. It’s called accounting, and it’s destroying the academy. But what do you expect? This is a school that employed luminaries such as Bill de Blasio, Lori Lightfoot, and yes, even Brian Stelter. I mean, what could Brian be teaching? How would you roll naked in a piece of flour to find a lost edge? There is a picture. So why is this important? Well, first, take one world-class institution, add DEI, and you get a sleepaway camp for 7,000 graduates whose only experience is tearing down statues and replacing them with men’s tampon vending machines . You know, they’ve taken a good name and ruined it. Like Madonna.
TIRE: I thought you were going to say it’s a good face, but that works too.
The academy has been on the move for decades pushing out all other competing ideas. You can get more diverse opinions from the Panini journalist, but it was the George Floyd event in 2020 that took DEI from an idea to an ideology, because any suggestion to pump the wake-up brakes made you a racist killer . And so, near the end of 2020’s Summer of Love and looting, Harvard wasted no time in hiring Charleston as its first diversity enforcer, who was then on the committee that selected Claudia Gay to take over as the school’s new president. Perhaps as plagiarists, they knew they could copy each other.

According to Harvard’s own school paper, the new president was elected after the shortest search in 70 years. It’s almost as if they already know what to hire and just work backwards. It’s like when Fox decided they wanted the most unpopular man on Earth to host the 8pm slot. I could not compete. And as you might expect, when you don’t check a candidate’s academic achievements, you find Claudine Gay, whose academic record has been as spotty as Hunter’s penis.
MICHELE TAFOYA: Oh, my God.
No use, but hey, of course, Harvard was shocked, even threatening to sue the New York Post for large damages for reporting this story. How could this happen? They cried: Claudine gay was the perfect diversity hire, she couldn’t have done anything wrong because she didn’t do any time. But when the investigator himself, Charleston, has to be investigated, you see how corrupt the DEI is. It gives moderates the authority to be bigots and the power to protect themselves from the laws they push on others. And as advances push DEI into every aspect of American life. No wonder we are losing faith in our institutions, which are collapsing faster than a city run by a Democratic mayor.
Now, this does not mean that minorities cannot be highly capable. Liz Warren is a senator, but if you narrow the field down to a chosen identity, which is racist to say the least, you make it harder to find a competent person because everyone else does the same thing. They are all fishing from the same small pond. Pretty soon, all you have is worms, fraud, and cars driven by Kennedy.

MICHELE TAFOYA: But, gosh. Oh, no.
TIRE: Too soon.
And now he’s destroying the college campuses he created, but only because they were caught. And not by legacy media, but by conservative sources. So not only is DEI ignorant and un-American, it’s also insulting to minorities who succeed on their own merits, because the message to them is that Whites can succeed on their own merits, but you can’t. And so the real racists, they are on the left. They no longer wear sheets over their heads. Although, you know, some should be, but there are more and it is worse. Now a Harvard teaching hospital is being forced to redact dozens of research papers by four of its top researchers accused of hiding data. So please be reminded that I will not have my pec reduction surgery in Boston. They are just in the way of everything. But it’s really scary.
You know, I’m not so out of shape if diversity hiring runs a diversity program, but hospitals, do you want your surgeon to slip through the cracks for reasons that have nothing to do with skill? Ask any liberal after two beers if they’d like to work on their child and DEI goes out the window faster than a window on a 737. The truth is, if there’s time to for this country to thrive in an increasingly competitive and dangerous world, it will have to reclaim the meritocracy that built the place in the first place. And that includes talented minorities and they exist even if the left wants you to think they don’t.
