Hampshire College had their graduation this weekend and it was the shitshow everyone dreamed Turtleboy’s favorite hippie college would be. Don’t know how we missed this story from a couple weeks ago, but I literally spit out my coffee and started laughing when I read this paragraph:
Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash announced that the college has selected a new commencement speaker in response to students who were upset that the original choice — Dr. Emily Wong — didn’t come from a pool of potential speakers suggested by students that included writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, singer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, president Barack Obama and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Wait…..what?? Let me get this straight. Students at Hampshire College actually get to submit a list of acceptable graduation speakers to the school President, and they ACTUALLY put Beyonce, Obama, and Bernie down as acceptable choices? This was a real list they actually thought would be taken seriously? Beyonce, Obama, Bernie. Sweet baby Jesus these are the dumbest mother fuckers who have ever lived.
But wait, they invited some more people in case Beyonce couldn’t make:
Lash said he initially chose Wong because the college was unable to bring in the speakers nominated by graduating students. He wrote:
Lash also informed the community that Bill Nye, Rachel Maddow, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and President Barack Obama did not respond to the college’s invitation.
Jane Goodall, Lupita Nyong’o, Billy Nye, Rachel Maddow, and LeVar Barton were the backup choices?? And if they couldn’t make it Tom Brady and Jonas Salk were next on the list.
And how much of a va-jay-jay is the President of this school? The students made this ridiculous list of speakers who would obviously not even respond to their ridiculous request to speak in front of their welfare school, and since he obviously couldn’t book any of them he went out and found a doctor who is both a minority and a woman. But apparently Dr. Emily Wong’s resume wasn’t progressive enough for the butthurt patrol:
“(I asked Wong) because my conversations with her felt so Hampshire-esque – she is a physician who is committed to using her scientific training to better peoples’ lives, specializing in infectious diseases in South Africa, where HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis disproportionately affect communities of color,” Lash wrote. “In turn, she was very excited to learn about a college where rigorous interdisciplinary work and a passionate faculty and student body converge into a force for radical social change.”
Helping stop the spread of AIDS in Africa? Sounds like Asian privilege to me!! Get that weak sauce cisgender hate speech off of Hampshire College’s campuses. Instead they demanded a guy in a dress named Reina Gossett, because being transgender is so hot in the social justice warriors streets right now:
That chick looks like she could be playing strong safety at UMass. Just sayin. That’s a dude. Maybe if Dr. Wong had a wong then she’d still be the speaker. Lesson learned.
Like we’ve said a million times on here before, we blame the adults in this situation. The students are all morons. We know that. They’re not smart people. But people like this guy right here handing out diplomas:
President Jonathan Lash. I mean, look at some of these people getting diplomas:
This is not a real school. It’s not a real college. No employer would EVER take a resume seriously if this was where you got your bachelor’s degree. As you can see from the graduation, it’s literally a clown college.
But Jonathan Lash should know better. He DOES know better. He’s smarter than these nudniks. But he’s scared of them, and it’s easier for him to give into their idiocy than it is to actually teach them. Teach them that they are not in charge. Their opinions matter, but only to an extent. And when they put Obama and Beyonce on their wish list for graduation speakers, he can’t take them seriously so he has to get his own speaker. And if they don’t like it, then don’t go to graduation. In other words, fuck off.
This would be the best lesson he could ever teach these poor, helpless souls.
