In case you were wondering, college is still a dump truck full of leftist fecal matter. Even all the way up to the Ivy Leaguers. The latest example? Harvard just invited Bradley/Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow at the Kennedy School of Government. Not everyone is super jazzed over it — and rightly so. One rather important guy has even decided to resign from the school in response. Can’t say we blame him.
Michael Morell, the former acting director and deputy director of the CIA, announced today that he is resigning from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government as a non-resident senior fellow because the school invited Bradley “Chelsea” Manning to be a visiting fellow. Morell added that “leaking classified information,” which Manning did, “is disgraceful and damaging to our nation.”
This is a big loss for Harvard. All for… a “lady” who failed to do her job correctly and has an Adam’s apple the size of my fist. Yeah, the tradeoff wasn’t worth it.
In case you need a quick refresher: Chelsea Manning is a traitor with a leakage issue. Possibly from both ends. Still, none of that kept former president Obama from granting him/her the specialest of pardons. You can read more about everything that went down here: Of Course!

Considering all that crap this she-beast managed to stir up as well as putting American lives at risk, one can see why Mr. Morell takes issue with the school’s choice here.
In his Sept. 14 letter to Douglas W. Elmendorf, dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, Morell, whose position is with the Belfer Center at the school, said he was “resigning, effective immediately.”
“Unfortunately, I cannot be a part of an organization — The Kenney School — that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information, Ms. Chelsea Manning, by inviting her to be a Visiting Fellow … Ms. Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks.”
Morell went on to note that senior U.S. military leaders had publicly stated that Manning’s espionage had “put the lives of U.S. soldiers at risk.”
Kudos to this guy for sticking to his guns. Yes, universities should invite people from different schools of thought to talk ideas for the benefit of their students. But one gets the sneaking suspicion that zero people benefit from the fake-lisped rasping of a criminal tranny. Clearly the college has far different priorities than he. Also notice how Morell didn’t riot and light Harvard on fire in response to the school having a different (and wrong) opinion. You can vehemently disagree without punching people or destroying stuff. Take notes, leftists.
