Here is Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen reacting to Harvard President Claudine Gay's interview with the Crimson in which she said about her congressional testimony, in part, "Substantively, I failed to convey what is my truth":
Anyone who says the words "my truth" has no business leading a university. "Truth" is not subjective. There is no "your truth" and "my truth" there is only "the truth." There is "my opinion" and "my lived experience" but "truth" is an objective reality. The purpose of a university is the pursuit of truth. So anyone who does not understand what truth is has no business leading one. When you hear someone say "my truth" you should stop listening because that person has just exposed their intellectual vapidity. She should resign over this statement alone.
Additional recommended reading for those following the Harvard antisemitism story: Rabbi David Wolpe's resignation from the committee advising Gay on countering antisemitism, which said in part: "the motivation to light the initial candle, to ensure the continuity and vitality of tradition in each generation, that is the supreme miracle. Dispute but also create. Build the institutions you value, don't merely attack those you denigrate. We are at a moment when the toxicity of intellectual slovenliness has been laid bare for all to see. Time to kindle the first candle."
