MSNBC contributor David Jolly accused Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv of showing the signs “of a school shooter,” referring to racist posts the teenager put on social media as a 16-year-old.
Jolly’s comments followed Harvard University’s decision to revoke Kashuv’s acceptance, which led critics to say that the decision was politically motivated by cries against Kashuv’s support for Second Amendment rights.
The article describes Jolly’s interview with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle, and goes on to state the following:
Jolly said that he originally thought that Kashuv should be given a chance at “redemption,” but after seeing the posts Kashuv made two years prior to the Parkland shooting—which included derogatory references to Jews and black people—Jolly changed his mind.
“My immediate reaction when I really dug into this, these are the social media postings we see of a shooter and we ask, ‘Where were the signs?’ See something, Say something,” Jolly said. “We see a shooter, and then we go back and look at social media posts and this is exactly what we see. I understand the sensitivity of this man toward Parkland. I’m not a mental health professional to assess him on those grounds. But what I’m suggesting—”
“Is that too far?” Ruhle asked. “Can you make that a leap like that?”
If you find yourself on national television saying an 18-year-old is a potential school shooter because he texted offensive things, you need to re-evaluate whether being a pundit is the right career for you.

This is utterly insane, you can say screenshots of texts are bad without suggesting a kid who survived a school shooting sounds like a school shooter.

13/ So what now? I’m figuring it out.
I had given up huge scholarships in order to go to Harvard, and the deadline for accepting other college offers has ended.
I’m exploring all options at the moment.
