It seems that America’s white youth are on a downward spiral! Last week it was the Ohio State Marching Band with its racist and homophobic songbook, and now it is Harry Vincent with his hateful Tweets! Talk about youths becoming radicalized! The Daily Mail reports:
A Texas Christian University student has been disciplined after posting online comments seen as racially offensive about current events, including rioting in Baltimore and the rise of the Islamic State, according to TCU officials.
TCU said Harry Vincent, a 19-year-old sophomore, violated two Student Code of Conduct provisions concerning ‘infliction of bodily or emotional harm’ and ‘disorderly conduct’ with his social media rants.
As a result, Vincent has been suspended from all extracurricular activities for one year, such as college football games, and can no longer live on campus or use non-academic facilities, such as the cafeteria and recreational center.
Among the comments were a Facebook post that reads: ‘These hoodrat criminals in Baltimore need to be shipped off and exiled to the sahara desert. Maybe then they’ll realize how much we provide for them (welfare, college tuition, obama’s phone’s, medicare, etc.).’
In a separate tweet, he also described the Baltimore rioters has ‘poor, uneducated druggy hoodrats’.
In regards to Islam he wrote: ‘This is clearly not a religion of peace.’
He also used the word ‘beaner’, a derogatory term to describe Mexicans.
Another post on Twitter, referring to a vacation, said: ‘Almost as tan as a terrorist. Going to be thoroughly disappointed if I’m not racially profiled on my trip to gulf shores.’
The comments were compiled by a childhood acquaintance from his native Maryland, posted on Tumblr with his social media handles and brought to the attention of the school.
As Vincent came under attack for the posts, he deleted his Twitter account and started a new one.
‘I’ve taken responsibility for the comments. I wrote them. I am sorry if the comments were offensive to anyone,’ Vincent told Reuters on Friday.
‘However, I still stand behind the fact that nothing I said was breaking a law and was protected under the Constitution.’
Vincent said his appeal of the suspension was denied and he has not decided yet on attending classes during the fall semester.
‘They’re trying to make me out to be the classic bigoted hateful white male,’ Vincent told Fox News.
‘That’s the complete opposite of what I am.’
Vincent said the only post he actually regrets is the one that refers to Mexicans as ‘beaners’.
‘I did not know that word was such a hurtful word,’ he said.
‘I do regret that one because I do realize that could have caused harm to some people.’
A university spokeswoman said a federal privacy law prevents TCU from discussing details of a student’s disciplinary process.
‘TCU expects its students to behave in a manner consistent with its mission, which is to educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in a global community,’ the university said in a statement.
Vincent says he isn’t sure he will return to TCU, because his suspension will be valid until he graduates, and he will paying to go to the college but not attend anything outside class.
He is now considering joining the Marine Corps or going to work for his father.
There are more pictures, and information at the link above. I hope that everybody notices the CONFEDERATE FLAG in the photo. What else would we expect from somebody who touches one of those horrible things! And then when caught, Vincent just laughs the whole thing off! I think TCU should refuse to let him come back to college, and give his place to a Black youth, or maybe even one of those “beaners!”
But beyond mere punishment, and perhaps re-education at a suitable facility, one must ask where are American white youths learning all this hatred? This thug was from Maryland, not some horrid Southern backwater state like Alabama or Mississippi. The educational system must simply do more to indoctrinate our children in the proper trains of thought. Perhaps there is a way to tie such indoctrination to teacher pay increases?
Yours very truly,
FootNote 1. The Image is Michael Landon from the 1957 film, I Was A Teenage Werewolf. Wiki says:
Samuel Z. Arkoff wrote in his memoirs that he got a lot of resistance for producing a film portraying a teenager becoming a monster, an idea that had never been exploited in film before.
Dawn Richard, who plays a teenaged gymnast in the film, was actually a 22-year-old Playboy centerfold model at the time, appearing in the magazine’s May 1957 issue, which hit the newsstands a couple months ahead of the movie.
Pepe, the Romanian janitor at the police station, was played by the Russian-born Vladimir Sokoloff, a character actor who appeared as ethnic types in over 100 productions, his most famous being the Old Mexican Man in The Magnificent Seven three years later.
Tony Marshall is the only other male actor to receive billing in the trailer for I Was a Teenage Werewolf, in addition to Landon and Bissell; however, he made only one other motion picture, the obscure Rockabilly Baby, for Twentieth Century-Fox, which was released in October of the same year.
Shooting began 13 February 1957. The movie was shot in seven days.
This film was the first of four “teenage monster” movies produced by AIP during 1957 and 1958. All four films highlighting a theme of innocent teenagers being preyed upon, transformed, and used by corrupt adults for selfish interests. I Was a Teenage Frankenstein and Blood of Dracula were both released in November 1957 and feature a teenage boy transformed into a Frankenstein monster and a teenage girl transformed into a werewolf-like vampire. How to Make a Monster, released in 1958, features two young actors being hypnotized to kill while in make-up as the monster characters “Teenage Werewolf” and “Teenage Frankenstein” of the 1957 films.
