And we wonder why college graduates are living in their parents’ basements as they search for more safe spaces. At this point, with a few exceptions, the academy has devolved into being a factory for unemployable leftist agitators.

and it appears you get a pass on actually competing if you were at Obama’s White House and stood next to Hillary.

If we’re going to get the US turned around, we have got to get our university system out of the leftist quicksand.

Via Washington Times.

Stanford University admitted a Muslim teenager who wrote the phrase “#BlackLivesMatter” 100 times in his application essay.

Ziad Ahmed, a senior at the Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, said he was surprised the prestigious Palo Alto university let him in.

“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,” the high schooler told Mic.

The essay prompt was “What matters to you, and why?”

The 18-year-old said he wanted his progressive bona fides to come across in his essay.

“My unapologetic progressivism is a central part of my identity, and I wanted that to be represented adequately in my application,” he said.

Stanford probably got the message loud and clear.

Mr. Ahmed was recognized as a Muslim-American change-maker by former President Barack Obama at the 2015 White House Iftar Dinner.

He also spearheaded Martin O’Malley’s youth presidential campaign and then interned and worked for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s White House run.

If this is the effort to build the Democrat Party’s backbench with more “progressives,” their already-marginalized status as an irrelevant coastal club is going to get much worse.

    Next year, a high school student should apply to Stanford writing All Lives Matter 100x in the essay block.

    Even worse, Naomi S. Riley column includes this info.:

    ‘When someone wanted to know why he hadn’t bothered to explain his support for the Black Lives Matter movement in his “essay,” Ahmed responded: “The insistence on an explanation is inherently dehumanizing.” ‘

    ‘Dehumanizing’ to explain one’s thoughts. And I thought Progressives didn’t like, Don’t ask Don’t tell.
