Why progressives want free college

It's not to get young adults ready for a successful career, it's to fill their heads full of progressive bs. It's an extension of the modern progressive theme........whites are evil. All whites.



Jessie Daniels’ specialty at the City University of New York’s Hunter College is “Internet manifestations of racism,” so it’s interesting that she would herself make racist comments on the public Internet.

The professor of sociology posted a series of tweets last week that suggest white people must forgo reproducing if they want to combat white supremacy.

Though she marked her Twitter account private after the tweets drew unwelcome attention, several consecutive tweets have been archived, letting readers see the context of her remarks.

Daniels started her thread as a response to a tweet by Crystal Fleming, an associate professor of sociology and Africana studies at the State University of New York-Stony Brook.

Fleming had asked how people cope who have “lost family and friends for challenging white racism.”


Daniels responded she had built “new worlds” of “partner, friends, church” who are engaged in the same work.

“Part of what I’ve learned is that the white-nuclear family is one of the most powerful forces supporting white supremacy,” she wrote.

White people having children facilitates “transfer of wealth” and the “outright worship of ‘the sanctity of the family’ which pervades pop culture,” Daniels continued.

“I mean, if you’re a white person who says they’re engaged in dismantling white supremacy, but + you’re forming a white family + reproducing white children that ‘you want the best for’ – how is that helping + not part of the problem?” she wrote in consecutive tweets.

Re: Why progressives want free college

Free college starts before kindergarten.  Children are culled like cattle as they grow up, being progressively selected for higher education or various trades.  The politicians will probably force a certain gender, ethnic and racial mix, but the end result will be academics picking people to be academics.  Look at Europe.  Free college results in overeducated liberal arts graduates who cant find jobs and won't work at menial tasks.

Particularly a problem if you're Cliven Bundy with a passel of special needs kids to provide for and still having to pay taxes for other peoples' educations.


Now we have a President who ran an education swindle- although never close to even the minimal acredidation for private for profit colleges (authorized by the GWB/GOP Congress in '05 and causing default rates to surge). And his new man for cleaning up the student loan mess is the former head of DeVry University, one of the worst offenders and subject of a very large judgement for their practices.

Re: Why progressives want free college

As usual, great article from Matt. He's one of the reasons I've kept subscribing to Rolling Stone over the years.

Re: Why progressives want free college

He's probably the only thing that kept it afloat through the UVA rape story.


Which was egregious. There are enough stories out there without letting someone make one up.
