    I find it strange that there isn’t an ambitious college in the US making the effort to boost their status by virtue of recruiting these high-achieving Asian students. It seems an obvious play to go get these students that test better than many Ivy Leaguers.

    I don’t get it. From the outside, it seems that colleges are satisfied with the Ivies maintaining their dominance. They all seem too content to play moneyball to jockey ahead of our clearly vulnerable elite.

    Excellent idea! I recommend that the ambitious college be Hillsdale. They can recruit high IQ, high achieving foreign Asians who will pay full tuition, with no messy loans or scholarships, to displace the current American-born Hillsdale student body.

    Why, in no time Hillsdale will be minority white – just like Harvard! Think of how renowned it will be then around the world.

    And what could possibly go wrong with such a smart, economically-based strategy?

    Heaven forbid that the US Department of Justice ever defend the interests of white Americans facing discrimination. Let’s feel sorry instead for discriminated Asian-Americans and give them the opportunity to displace whites.

    [Headline: Whites a Minority in 2017 Harvard Freshman Class]

    America is only allowed to protect the interests of non-whites. Whites don’t deserve any special consideration, even in their own countries. In fact, whites don’t deserve their own countries.

    By the way, does Japan, South Korea, Singapore or Taiwan privilege whites or blacks in their educational systems? Are those systems suffering for the lack of diversity, which is our greatest strength, or are their’s doing better than America’s?

    Educational achievement is not, contrary to what was mentioned in this podcast several times, purely the result of “working hard.”

    The biological basis of IQ is not a total fabrication, you know, unless you want to ignore all the data to the contrary…like a progressive.

    Liz Wheeler virtuously said, “Conservatives do have a heart.”

    That’s comforting to know. I remember Rick Perry said something similar in 2012.

    Such a college would have to be destroyed from without and within. By implication, this school would have zero students from groups that received preferences at other schools.

    The Justice and Education Department SWAT teams would descend. The accreditation organizations would reject it. The Ivys would announce a ban on accepting graduate school applicants from it. All major companies would announce a ban on hiring from it.

    O’Sullivan’s Law would also come into play. Consider how even Brandeis University (founded to be such a school) is in the anti-Semitism-affirmative action spiral of the rest of academia.
