It’s no surprise our colleges lean heavily to the left. Though, every now and then, something comes along which really drives that point home. Like Scripps College hosting what amounts to a pep rally for the socialist “utopia” of Venezuela.
The small California women’s institution known as Scripps College is hosting representatives from Nicolás Maduro’s socialist Venezuela for a series of panels from April 9 through the 11.
According to the Claremont Independent, Venezuelan Consul-Generals Antonio Cordero and Jesús Chucho García will discuss topics such as “African solidarities,” “coups and imperial wars,” and Venezuela’s “new society rooted in political participation, communal economies and democracy.”
The email invitation obtained by the Independent opens with three smiling (Venezuelan) women holding placards stating (English translations) “We won’t rest until the revolution is made irreversible,” and “NO to Yankee imperialism.”
Monday’s session, “Venezuela’s Challenge: Against War and a Unipolar World,” notes that Cordero is an “expert on military questions and resisting rightwing paramilitary attacks.”
I can understand why the school would be hyping up Venezuela. After all, they have those common sense gun laws leftists want here. Thanks to their socialist wizardry, their citizens don’t have an ounce of fat (or anything else) on them. Which, in turn, is leading to a whole buttload of new culinary delights. Like roasted Pomeranian and juicy zebra sirloins.
Sarcasm aside, Venezuela is a grade-A sh*thole. Hardly the kind of place you’d be wanting to take your cues from. However that’s not going to stop socialism-loving douchelords from calling it Heaven. Then again, that’s not too farfetched of a comparison. Seeing as their citizens are only a few missed meals away from departing for the great beyond.
It’s funny how colleges continuously fight against hosting non-leftists. Yet, they happily roll out the hammer-and-sickle-adorned red carpet for far-left despots who starve their people to death.
With moves like this, it’s clear where academia stands politically. In the foodless trash dump that is liberal extremism.
