Once again, the liberal colleges and universities have gone one step farther into the unhinged.
A Muslim teen activist has been accepted into Stanford University. How? Not based on his resume, but based upon his politics! And of course, one cannot get into Stanford with a small connection, such as Hillary Clinton!
But I digress. His application essay was filled with three simple, but three politically charged words that now make him a “star” among the Radical Left: Black. Lives. Matter.
From The Political Insider:
Are there any high school seniors out there looking to increase their odds of getting into a top-tier school? Just make sure your application essay has a politically-correct, left-wing message, no matter how unsophisticated, and you’re in!
At least, that’s what 18-year old Muslim political activist Ziad Ahmed learned when his Stanford application asked “What matters to you, and why?” He wrote “#BlackLivesMatter” 100 times – and was just as surprised as all of us that it actually worked and he got accepted.
“I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted. I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability,” he told Mic.com.
Nothing like doing your best and being willing to become a well-rounded citizen in this life. No it’s better to gather your Liberal connections, and instead of writing anything in a unbiased viewpoint, just write the first partisan slogan you can come up with. That is the way to get into college now.
Thankfully, some brilliant parents have come back to argue just how high the double standards are in America and in the academic world right now.
And of course, it was met with criticism from those pointing out that it’s unlikely such an “essay” would be tolerated with a different message.

As a graduate of a college that doesn’t accept any federal or state funding, and with a learning environment that had students reading original documents, I am appalled that our academic world has come to this. Write what the school wants you to write, no option for dialogue, dogmatism reigns, and that’s how you move forward in life.
By creating this snowflake environment, the world of academia is doing a complete disservice to all parents, students, and ultimately, the future of America.
