Emails point to investigation by Harvard administrators of anti 'racial justice' blog

Emails published on a blog run by activists opposed to a racial justice group at Harvard Law School show that the organization, Royall Must Fall, asked the Harvard administration to investigate the anonymous site and discover who is behind it.

The blog, Royall Asses, grew out of an incident last year where pieces of black tape were placed on the portraits of black law professors.  The site claimed that the incident was a false flag operation by members of Royall Must Fall.

One member of the racial justice group claimed to have received email threats.  She went to the FBI and asked them to monitor the blog despite the fact there was no evidence anyone connected with the blog had sent the threatening emails.

The group also asked law school administrators to find out who was behind the blog.

Daily Caller:

In the first email, sent out Dec. 6, Williams discusses threats that group members have received due to their “racial justice movement,” and says that at her father’s suggestion she plans to report such threats to the FBI. Williams doesn’t just stop at reporting threats, though. She also says that if Vormawor, Klosterboer and Clayborne give their permission, she would ask the FBI to start monitoring the Royall Asses blog, even though the blog had made no threats against them.

In the second email, Williams discusses a meeting with three HLS administrators, who apparently told her that Harvard’s IT department and police department were both trying to find out the identities of the person (or people) behind the Royall Asses blog.

This revelation comes from two emails published Friday on Royall Asses, both sent by HLS student Christian Williams to a group of about 40 students that included all three students labeled as “Royall Asses.”

Royall Asses claims that it came into possession of the two emails because one of the people Williams contacted was appalled that the student activists and Harvard itself would use “Gestapo tactics to invade student privacy.” That student forwarded the emails to Royall Asses.

If Williams’ emails accurately represent Harvard’s actions, then it suggests Harvard attempted to investigate (and potentially expose) its own students simply for running a blog that criticized left-wing elements on campus.

There is nothing surprising about these revelations, given the left's propensity to use any means necessary to squelch people opposed to them.  Neither is it a shock that school administrators would be in cahoots with the activists.  There is a growing symbiosis between SJW groups and university officials.  Their activism increases the administrator's power to control students.  Universities are becoming prisons of the mind as any opposition to the agenda of administrators and SJW's is quickly and harshly slapped down.

A Brave New World, indeed.
