Leaked Email Shows Ford Foundation Using Political Influence to Bully ASU Administration
bullies gonna bully
In September I wrote 2 articles about The Ford Foundation: Whistleblower emails reveal rot at Ford Foundation followed by That racist chick from ASU who went viral was a Ford Fellow. These articles set off a chain of events resulting in JD Vance calling for the Ford Foundation to be taxed, Karlstack being mentioned on Barri Weiss’ substack Common Sense, and Karlstack being namedropped on Tucker.
Ford Fellows would be wise to remember that after leaking their initial trove of emails to the world, I still have access to their flow of new emails as well. To that end, here is an email blast concerning my ASU article that was sent out last night (which is why this article is so short; I wrote it quickly on short notice):
I have a few thoughts on this email:
The first thing this email mentions is queer femme students. I googled the word “femme” and apparently, it means “a lesbian whose appearance and behaviour are seen as traditionally feminine.”
Why is the fact that she is a lesbian relevant here? Even worse, why is the fact that she is a “traditionally feminine” lesbian relevant??? Would we need to handle this case any differently if she was a butch lesbian? What do her niche sexual preferences have to do with anything? Why bring them up? WHO CARES!? Professional victims care. For them, these are credentials.
I think it’s funny they threw shade by using air quotes to call me a “reporter” haha... Let me guess: tax codes, institutional rot, and racist meltdowns are only valid to report on if someone from MSNBC “reports” on them?
We now know that Tekola has been charged with code of conduct violations such as "stalking or engaging in repeated or significant behaviour toward another individual" and "interfering with or disrupting university or university-sponsored activities."
“So far the white men have not been charged,” adds this email. It is infuriatingly dishonest for them to write this, as there aren’t “two equal sides” to every story; this one has aggressors and victims. The whole incident is on camera. Do they know we can watch the entire thing on video? What would you even charge these white guys with? BLM argues that they were “mocking, berating, and threatening” and “using racist language and threatening behaviour to intimidate students of colour.” You be the judge:
There’s a petition circulating right now with 3,000+ signatures, demanding that ASU drop the charges against Tekola. This gets to a deeper narrative: BLM/Antifa types think justice should depend on if you are popular, and on what “feels good.” I mean, in what universe would the ASU administration care about how many signatures one can wrangle out of BLM/Antifa comrades? Either a rules violation occurred or it didn’t, you do not deserve special consideration if you reach a certain threshold of retweets, clout, or victimhood.
Here is promotional material for their new campaign to corrupt the judicial process. I would organize a counter-letter-writing campaign, but there is only one day left until the hearing, and it is late notice. If you oppose this bright yellow letter, however, and you are reading this substack article on Tuesday, November 16th, it is not too late. Feel free to copy-paste these addresses below and give the ASU administration a piece of your mind, they need some sane feedback to counterbalance the tidal wave of SJW crap I am sure they are experiencing:

You want to start a blogging war with me, Fordies? You will lose. I am more than happy to keep going back and forth like this. In fact, I don’t know why you are constantly coming down to my level to engage in the first place, it is like wrestling a pig in mud, you both get dirty but the pig likes it. I am loving it. It is fun for me to goad one of the most powerful organizations in the world into a slap fight… but what are you getting out of it? Nothing, really. It just goes to show how petty, stupid, and vindictive career academics can be.
You have thousands of PhDs at your disposal, 16 billion dollars, control of the world’s elite organizations, but despite your best efforts I still have my freedom of speech. I am right and you are wrong, and my one word of truth shall outweigh the whole world. I will keep leaking your low-IQ, hyperpartisan, corrupt emails to the world as they roll in; for the wicked flee when no man pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. The world needs to know what the Ford Foundation is: a malignant tumour on the neck of western civilization.
NOTE: There is a press conference scheduled for Noon today on the ASU campus, see below. I am curious to see how that plays out.
