The take away here that takes my breath away is that this is the caliber teachers at Harvard today. They're ripping off people blind at 50k a year tuition with frauds like this woman in the classroom.
Powerlinereports it is beyond my power of discernment to identify the most over-the-top comment criticizing President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord. But this tweet by a Harvard professor named Joyce Chaplin is surely a contender:Joyce Chaplin tweeted:The USA, created by int’l community in Treaty of Paris in 1783, betrays int’l community by withdrawing from #parisclimateagreement today.Chaplin teaches American Studies. Yet, she appears not to know how America was created. Ted Cruz reminded her:Ted Cruz tweeedtJust sad. Tenured chair at Harvard, doesn’t seem to know how USA was created. Not a treaty. Declaration+Revolutionary War+Constitution=USA.He added:Lefty academics @ my alma mater think USA was “created by int’l community.” No–USA created by force, the blood of patriots & We the People. Treaty of Paris simply memorialized that fact, of our total victory at Yorktown. Her claim is like saying a plastic globe created the earth.Cruz is right. After all, Abraham Lincoln didn’t say:Four score years ago, the international community brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Paris and dedicated to the proposition that we shall abide by the wishes of foreigners.
