Reacting to Harvard’s decision to draw Parkland shooting survivor and right-wing pundit Kyle Kashuv’s admission over past ethnic slurs, onetime Republican Rep. David Jollyasserted Tuesday that the prejudiced sends Kashuv sent to classmates were the specific characteristics of a mass shooter.
During an MSNBC panel discussion on Kashuv, legion Stephanie Ruhle invited Jolly–currently an MSNBC analyst–if he thought the Ivy League university’s decision was government , expressed the view that foremost conservatives have” cried foul-smelling” because Kashuv was one of the few Parkland survivors who vocally attacked shot rights.
” I don’t ,” Jolly replied.” I think this is the perfect narration for our time. Within our culture, managers are given greater permission to racist statements and people with racist feelings. They are hold greater equity. It is important for Harvard to say,’ Not in local communities .'”
Referencing letters Kashuv sent in which he frequently abused the n-word, Jolly spotlighted one berth in which the adolescent seemingly invoked shooting up his high school to speculate that Kashuv could have been a potential shooter himself.
” And he drawn attention to one of the shoot-’em-up video games and said they should settled a map of that on his high school ,” Jolly exclaimed. “And this was two years before Parkland. And my immediate reaction when I actually dug into this, these are the social media posts we accompany of a crap-shooter and we query,’ Where were the signs ?'”
The onetime Florida congressman added:” See anything, say something. We watch a shooter and then we go back and look at social media posts and this is exactly what we consider. I understand the sensitivity of this soul because of Parkland. I’m not a mental health professional to assess him on those grounds.”
Ruhle, meanwhile, pushed back, requesting Moderately if that hypothesi was ” more far .”
” It is not ,” Jolly greeted.” No, “its not”, Stephanie .”
He went on to ponder what the fuck is happen if an” happen were to occur ,” noting that Kashuv has gained gatherings with the chairman and other high-profile conservatives over his push for stronger firearm rights.
” You have to question how do we promote somebody with these social media positions in their background ?” Moderately expected.” The young man deserves emancipation. But he likewise deserves a closer look to whether someone with this profile should be able to purchase a firearm under the gun laws of the United Commonwealth .”
