Top university in Gavin Newsom’s state got popped for one head-turning scandal

The Left is imploding.

They have embraced ideas that cannot stand up to scrutiny.

And a top university in Gavin Newsom’s state got popped for one embarrassing scandal.

Conservatives have long warned that American universities have been infested with radical leftists.

They were largely ignored, but now moderate Democrats are beginning to wake up.

One “woke” concept that has seeped its way into a core tenet of Leftism is DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusivity).

DEI implosion

DEI is simply an excuse for organizations to hire and promote people based on identity politics and for activists to punish organizations that do not.

But now DEI is blowing up in their faces.

Harvard President Claudine Gay was forced to resign after it came to light that she plagiarized much of her academic career.

Now UCLA Medical School’s DEI czar is under fire for doing the same.

Natalie Perry, UCLA’s Cultural North Star Lead, got busted by investigative journalists Chris Rufo and Luke Rosiak for shocking levels of plagiarism.

The two reported, “Perry published her Ph.D. dissertation in 2014 at the University of Virginia about college diversity programs. An analysis of the paper found it ridden with the worst sort of plagiarism, reproducing large swaths of text directly from several other authors, without proper citations. The scale of the plagiarism suggests that Perry lacks both ethics and competence and raises questions about academic programs that push DEI. Perry’s dissertation lifted passages from ten other papers. In key portions of her text, she copied almost every paragraph from other sources without attribution. She fails even to mention at least four of the ten plagiarized papers anywhere in her dissertation.”

As Rufo and Rosiak noted, Perry brazenly lifted entire paragraphs without attribution.

Shocking levels of plagiarism

Not only did she copy work, but some of the citations included were from the original authors.

Rufo and Rosiak added, “[i]n some cases when Perry did include parenthetical citations, she wasn’t citing the papers whose text she had lifted. Instead, she simply reproduced the citations included in those stolen excerpts.”

DEI programs intentionally lower standards in order to manufacture a desired result in terms of representation.

So if an engineering program is desperate to have more women faculty members, the school is choosing from a smaller pool of talent because fewer women are interested in STEM fields.

When conservatives and libertarians bring up that inconvenient fact, leftists retreat to the argument that women have been socialized for generations not to pursue STEM, thus all of society must be changed.

Plagiarism is a serious academic violation, so UCLA has no choice but to take these claims seriously.
