College Staffer Goes on Hunger Strike for Black Lives Matter
Let's take a break from life's serious trials and tribulations to laugh at this dinkus going on hunger strike. I do love me a good hunger strike. It's like the smoked brisket of tantrums. The sweet sauce of leftist rage. The coleslaw of... wait, what was I talking about?
Racism is stampeding across the University of Vermont. At least according to the petty imagination of John Mejia, who just couldn't take it anymore. He's fighting his racist windmills by saying no to cheeseburgers, yes to temporary anorexia.
“I am on a hunger strike until the list of demands that I gave to UVM and the City of Burlington are met,” they said.
The strike is due to the “the amount of anti-black racism that is rampant at this University,” Mejia said.
The anti-black racism he appears to be talking about is "it's ok to be white" signs. No, seriously. That's why he's "starving" himself. That's the rampant racism. A few pieces of paper.
Mejia’s list of demands includes all of the demands from the list submitted by anonymous activist group NoNames for Justice Sept. 25. Mejia’s list adds that a fourth flagpole should be added to the Davis Center to fly the Black Lives Matter flag.
“The anti-black racism at UVM has been here forever, but recently it has been given license to grow and be visible,” Mejia wrote in an online petition. “I have worked within the system to try to effect meaningful change but I believe it is time for something radical.”
"Something radical" on this college campus translates to "I'm not eating any ramen today!" So earthshattering. So INSPIRING. If only this spate of intermittent fasting wasn't the exact same form of protest engaged in by every other college crybaby (see Student Goes on a Hunger Strike Until Falsely Accused Professor is Removed and LOL! Yale Student Union Goes On Hunger Strike. Gets Trolled By College Republicans’ BBQ…). Starving yourself is just a Tuesday without having a sandwich. Some religions practice a little fasting certain times of the year. Weight loss experts debate the value of prolonged fasting in a day on the regular. This guy is just being a douche.
I just regret not living close enough to support Mejia. With a BBQ. Right next to his protest. Let's fire up the smoker, yeah?
