A Princeton University professor who is going for the chubby Malcolm X look, gave a commencement speech at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. She used her time at the podium, NOT to uplift the graduates, NOT to congratulate them for their achievements and give the same old boring pep talk, nope.
She used the time to focus on herself and accuse President Donald Trump of being a ‘racist, sexist megalomaniac’.
Enjoy that liberal arts degree, kiddos! At $49,000 a year, I’m sure it’s money well spent.
It only took Taylor two-minutes into her speech for her to say this:
‘The President of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac. It’s not a benign observation, but has meant tragic consequences for many people in our country – from terror-inducing raids in the communities of undocumented immigrants to his disparaging of refugees in search of freedom and respite.’
Taylor, as you no doubt could understand, is the author of ‘From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation’. In her book, she suggested activism as the main cause for the courts striking down of Trump’s executive orders that curtail immigration from a few Muslim-majority countries.
She went on:
‘When Trump’s first illegal Muslim travel ban was attempted, thousands of ordinary people flooded the airports around this country.’
‘And because of those protests, and the defiance they represented, that ban was stopped – not once, but twice. It is not enough just to be outraged. Injustice has to actually be defied.’
In one portion of her speech, she whined that ‘the status quo is increasingly intolerable. The political and economic status quo in this country has failed over and over again to deliver a better way to the vast majority of people in this country,’
Apparently Taylor doesn’t understand that America has the most charitable, and poverty LOWERING economical system in the history of the world, and as it stands, isn’t even a FULL free-market system. I would love to hear what she has in mind to replace it…Let me guess – the one political system of the 19th century that has crumbled and failed time, after time, after time.
Socialism. Or Communism. All the same, just a different rates of civilian death…Again, she repeated:
‘For millions of people, the status quo is increasingly intolerable. It gnaws away at the tiny threads that millions of people are hanging on to in their daily struggles to make ends meet. ‘Now is the time for defiance. Perhaps most importantly, we need hope.’
From The Daily Mail:
Taylor, who has a doctorate from Northwestern University in African American Studies, said Trump has ’empowered an attorney general who embraces and promulgates policies that have already proven to have had a devastating impact on black families and communities.’
On May 12, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he has instructed prosecutors to pursue the most serious charges possible against criminal suspects, reversing Obama-era policies and upsetting civil rights groups. The graduating class of 2017 also heard from the school’s president Jonathan Lash. He urged graduates to use their skills to improve the world for themselves and others.
‘Fearless inventors and doers, the world needs you now more than ever,’ Lash said. ‘You can learn anything, invent what you need, build what you can imagine. You are the change.’
