Revealed: 45 Harvard Law students who went along with Gestapo tactics against us

On April 22 we published e-mails — leaked to us by one of the members of the “Royall Must Fall” / “Reclaim HLS” movement — documenting that back in December members of the movement sought to have us investigated by the FBI merely for blogging about the movement, and also were (purportedly) told by HLS administrators that Harvard resources were being used in an effort to discover our identities.

In response, law professor Glenn Reynolds, who runs the highly popular “Instapundit” blog, suggested that if it’s true that these leftist students pressed for an FBI investigation of us, their conservative critics, it “ought to be reported to the bar ethics commissions in states where they plan to practice.”

We will leave it to others to judge the appropriate response to these students, but it does seem clear that all but one of the dozens of leftists who either wrote, or were copied on, the e-mails were complicit in an effort to target us for investigation merely for blogging from a conservative point of view. (As indicated earlier, only one student copied on the e-mails forwarded them to us, anonymously.)

To aid anyone who either now or in the future may be interested in investigating these students, during the past several weeks we have pulled together some basic information on all 46 students listed on the e-mails — 45 of who were bystanders to injustice against us, doing nothing at all to alert us to the fact that Harvard resources were (purportedly) being used to investigate our identities, and that there even was an effort underway to have us investigated by the FBI.

Of course we have included photos of the students, where available, so that everyone can take into account the racial and gender characteristics of the people involved — critical factors in any social-justice movement.

In keeping with the jocular, irreverent tone of this blog, and for clarity and future shorthand use, we have numbered each student, designating each of them (with one exception) as an officially recognized “Royall Ass.” The first six students are the students who we have already, in past blog posts, officially designated as “Royall Asses,” labeled one through six. We then take up the numbering from seven through 46.

Keep in mind that one of the 46 is not a “Royall Ass” at all, but is instead a whistleblower who alerted us to what was happening. That person, of course, can clear himself or herself of any suggestion of impropriety, if ever investigated by bar authorities, journalists, or anyone else regarding this incident, by producing a copy of the e-mail sent to us alerting us to the situation. We of course will be happy to confirm the authenticity of that e-mail if anyone contacts us for that purpose. We want to make sure that nothing we write here ends up hurting the one student involved in this corrupt movement who turned out to be an upstander to justice.

  1. i have zero idea what all this is about – even after asking law school friends about it I still didnt get it. but theres no surprise in seeing esther labrado on that list. dont believe the “arent i so sweet” ploy. she cannot be trusted. if her personal affairs are anything to go by she isnt someone who should ever be allowed to practice law.


  2. Lol. Whoever wrote this blog is a complete idiot. I mean, you’d have to have half a brain to speak so negatively about a lot of great and intelligent students advocating for positivity and change. Find another hobby instead of picking on people who are better than you. Thanks.


    1. I’m a mere observer, but cannot resist commenting. “Complete idiot”? One cannot refute an insult. That said, here are three obvious responses. 1. This post is about drawing attention to those students who allegedly attempted to use Harvard resources to encourage an FBI investigation into others because they held a dissenting view from the orthodoxy du jour. Apparently, the students in question, regardless of whether they were “better than” the bloggers here, were advocating for a bit less benign than “positivity.” It appears the “change” they were going for was something rather more like a boot on the neck. Less rosy-sounding, but if the charges are true, a more accurate assessment. 2. The bloggers would likely disagree with your claim that the Progressivist cause those students are advocating for isn’t “positivity” at all–and they would be right to do so. 3. What the hell is it to advocate for “change”? How does one even form that kind of intention? And how is mere change intrinsically a good thing? So bizarre is the Progressivist worldview.
