The Weekly Roundup: Free lunch for illegals
- The headlines we were tempted to run, and the commentary we couldn’t.
Monday 27 February
Based on what these students think is “great” about America, Trump has his work cut out for him.
Except that they aren’t given as much freedom to associate as are real insurgents.
What better time to invite students to a partisan political rally than right at the end of class, when you know they’re all listening for the assignment?
Again. What point to fighting fascism if one is going to employ the same tactics as the fascists?
This is just the tip of a very sordid iceberg. Stay tuned.
Tuesday 28 February
Sure, he poked the bear. But he did it in a fairly amusing way.
The giant foot of social justice stomps hard. Or at least, that’s their theory.
Yeah, but that’s what they said about citizens, too, and look how that turned out.
Seriously. If you’re going to rig a vote, at least have the courtesy to do it well.
Wednesday 1 March
The suicides “can have no other meaning,” at least until the good professors become embarrassed at their wording and declare that they had another meaning.
A thoroughly appropriate response, if you ask us.
Note that they aren’t volunteering to provide the funding, though.
So how are we supposed to talk about Sharia, then?
Trick question! We aren’t supposed to talk about it at all.
Or is the real purpose of free Metro rides just to cut down on classroom overcrowding?
Uh, guys? Volunteer work isn’t typically compensated.
Thursday 2 March
To clarify, since apparently clarification is necessary: The issue here is with a school employee using student and faculty listservs to promote the study group.
There have now officially been more arrests made for vandalism of CR signs in the past week than were made when violent rioters attempted to ransack the campus.
Why bother? Gov. Brown is already pushing a plan to raid middle class scholarships for that very purpose.
That would be roughly 14 times the amount they allocated for a suicide prevention event.
Good to know they have their priorities straight.
Doesn’t eliminating the title of “queen” seem a little insensitive to the gay community?
Huh. We thought there was something in the Constitution somewhere about that...
That leaves just 39 slackers.
That’s right, we’re looking at you, Rhode Island.
Apparently they didn’t feel confident that the court would agree that they had a dire educational need to protect students from large inflatable balls.
Friday 3 March
Who says you can’t please everyone?
Sorry, the novelty still hasn’t worn off.
Uh-huh. And the rest of them?
Maybe the faculty could just take over repayment of those loans?
That’s not a stigma waiting to happen...
That’s awfully generous of them. And here these immigrants were only expecting opportunity.
Maybe it’s just so he can pay the school back for all the funding cuts that his policies provoked.
