Liberal College Students Calling For REMOVAL Of Clarence Thomas Building…Just One Small Problem With That

People, no matter how young or old they might be should never put their name to something in any form without knowing exactly what that thing is about.

Give you an example. Many years ago I was helping my grandmother drop something off at a community recycling event that was being sponsored by several civic organizations in her area. We pull into the parking lot where the event was held and the first person that greeted her was someone from her church.

She had a petition in her hand that my grandmother signed without even really looking at it and she said to her friend that I would sign it as well. I did but not before I read the text included in the petition because you never want to put your name to anything without being informed about it.

Liberals tend to have the reverse of this problem. They will put their name to anything that they can think of when it comes to protesting without being informed in the slightest about it.

I once saw a short documentary several years ago filmed at one of the Occupy Philadelphia encampments where the film maker was asking people one simple question…why were they there? There was a shocking number of people who simply could not answer the question.

H/T Daily Wire:

In another revealing man-on-the-street video by Campus Reform, students who back a petition demanding the removal of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s name from a campus building are asked to explain why they so passionately support the effort. “I don’t know” becomes a familiar refrain.

In October, students at the Savannah College of Art and Design launched a petition calling for the removal of the name of “anti-woman” Justice Thomas, a native of Savannah who happens to be a conservative, from one of the campus buildings.

Campus Reform notes that the petition has managed to rack up over 2,000 signatures from students and community members.

In a video posted Monday, Campus Reform media director Cabot Phillips visits the Georgia school to find out why students are so enthused about erasing Justice Thomas’s existence on the campus. The same students who are all in for signing the petition also admit that they actually don’t know much, if anything, about the justice.

Nonetheless, that doesn’t stop one student from comparing him to “Hitler.”

“I honestly think he should be removed,” says one guy wearing a red bandana. “We should probably just take his name off of the building. It’s not that big of a deal,” says a girl with purple hair. “I agree that it should get removed,” says a girl in a black sweatshirt. “I agree. I don’t think he represents the student body,” says a guy in a Saints hat.

But when Phillips asks the students to explain why they support the petition, the answers get a bit less assertive.


“I don’t know, um,” says the bandana guy. “Hm. Do you mind if I get back to you?”

“Hm,” says one girl in a jean jacket, who then puts her arms out in surrender.

      EASY to understand! Government education lacks the most important part of “learning’; Education! Gov. FUNDED by tax-payers, Gov. curriculum monitored, enforced, and FORCED! They’re mere “PUPPETS” to do what our Government requires! Live, act, vote, exactly as they are TOLD to! Details, SHMEE-tails doesn’t matter! Compliance DOES!

    This liberal agenda has went so far left it is now a Fascists/communists agenda for the far left. Antifa should be considered Domestic Terrorists. the left leaning liberals have dumbed down our children first at the university’s then the college’s and down to the high schools, middle schools. and now down to the grade schools. Far left teachers and so called professors from the left only teach. HOW SAD FOR OUR COUNTRY AN THOSE WHO FOUGHT TO GIVE US OUR FREEDOM FOR SOME HALF BRAINED IDIOTS TO SPOUT THINGS THEY DO NOT KNOW ABOUT. SEND THEM ALL OVER TO FIGHT SOME WARS OR LIVE IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY FOR AWHILE. OR HOW ABOUT PUTTING BACK READING WRITING AND ARITHMETIC PLUS GOVERNMENT, WORLD HISTORY AND THINGS LIKE THAT WHICH ARE NOT TAINTED BY THE LEFT.

    I have actually read the autobiography of justice Thomas…if you ever want an example of someone who came from nothing and rose up…and to endure the segregated America that was back then….and then to be on the supreme court..his book was very inspirational…for those to protest about someone they know nothing about is almost rewriting the history of what justice Thomas went through growing up.

    This is frightening, but it happens over and over. I remember the Thomas and Anita Hill and he was totally correct when he called it a lynching. Anita Hill had followed Thomas from one employment position to the next, not something a person would do if they were being sexually abused. Additionally, students who had been in her classes when she taught in college, testified that she had engaged in the same things that she was accusing Clarence Thomas of doing. I will always believe that she was being paid to try to keep him off the court.

    What is now becoming a serious concern is the fact that some have elected a complete dunce into the house of Representatives.
    Non other than ocasio-cortez. The moron from Jersey I think. Consider a complete generation of know-nothing, group think trained, idiots being elected to political office is very sobering. Big mouths that don’t have a clue or knowledge to support
    the bullcrap that they just spewd will become a real problem very soon if this PC college/university indoctrination is put in
    check immediately. Just think…politicians who need a safe space in order to suck their thumbs and hug their stuffed animals
    when they don’t get their way. Frightening.
    Should you pay 10s of thousands of dollars for your kid(s) to attend college and get this as a result? Hell No!!!

    All this does is PROVE most who are part of movements like this, have no clue let alone actual care about the facts before their ready to admit their idiots per public education and “art” colleges that are mostly a front for just more social-ism justice and community communism.
