Behold the rich intellectual diversity of the modern campus.
This isn't the worst politically correct college application story. But it does show how contemptible and worthless the process has become. It also tells you what a Stanford degree will be worth in terms of merit if this goes on. Because while lefties grin at the idea of getting accepted to Stanford for doing the Maoist version of chanting the same slogan over and over again. You wouldn't want your heart surgeon to be the guy who got into school by writing Black Lives Matter 100 times. And you don't want the guy designing the car you drive to be that guy.
We tried that already in the USSR and the rest of the Bloc. It didn't work out too well.
But for now here's another heartwarming story about the decline and fall of intellectual life in the West.
The senior at Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, believed his answer spoke for itself, and so he decided to write that and only that —#BlackLivesMatter — 100 times.
The 18-year-old said he wanted to write an application that was “authentic,” something that demonstrated his passion to be a part of making a difference, which includes being an ally with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ahmed was confident the university would respond to his message — and he was right.
Of course he was right. Muslim fan of a racist anti-American movement that is very trendy in left-wing circles (at least among those lefties who haven't been punched in the face by them, shot or had their business torched) is perfect.
It's the next best thing to Stalin volunteering at Planned Parenthood. Or Jim Jones taking in Syrian refugees. It's so sublimely intersectional.
“The attention from this tweet emboldens my desire to learn and understand the history of how we have arrived at this moment,” Ahmed said. “I want to find innovative ways to disrupt and create positive change, to be a constructive and respectful ally, and to be better a person.”Remember when we used to laugh at the Chinese and Russians living in a country where they stood around shouting meaningless garbled Communist slogans while wearing ugly clothes?
