Aahaha! Oberlin Students Demand to be Paid... to Protest.
Just when you think that Oberlin students can't get any more ridiculous (read our piece on their protesting over the "racist" cafeteria food here), the Black Student Union is actually demanding that the school now pay them... to protest.
Yes, really. On a list including a myriad ridiculous demands...
The Oberlin College Black Student Union has released a list of 50 “Institutional Demands” for the school, including one that orders it to pay black students who organize protests $8.20 per hour for doing so.
You should know that this, among their other demands, are not "polite requests," but “concrete and unmalleable demands.”Seriously, they said that. Presumably with a straight face.
A few things here.
First, don't worry Oberlin students. Nobody ever expected you to be polite.
Second, $8.20 an hour? What happened to the #FightFor15? $8.20 an hour doesn't sound like a fair and livable wage for all the hard work you do organizing protests instead of going to class and learning things. Matter of fact, I think that your shunning of actual learning deserves at least a $24.72 hourly minimum (when accounting for inflation). Those blunts won't pay for themselves.
Finally, this shows you the difference between leftists and conservatives. While leftist college students are demanding the school pay them, a Conservative would have had the sense to set up a GoFundMe or... no wait.
Conservatives don't demand payment for protesting. That's what I was getting at.
These kids want to be paid to protest, while simultaneously demanding the removal of other student's right to free speech. Watch the video, and try to avoid swallowing a knife afterward.
