""Yale students sign petition to repeal first amendment""

Hillary Clinton went there.

Give them a taste by not allowing them the free speech of that very petition.

"Care to sign our petition to abolish free speech?"

"Well, you can't."

Well it does not surprise me. These kids entering college, an elite university, have been brought up in a bubble. These kids probably went to high school within walking distance to their friends, yet had to text them. This is ridiculous!!

So has it been determined how many signed this?

Some of the students at Yale may be your "best and brightest" but certainly nowhere near all of them.

This reminds me of Rick Mercer's Talking to Americans, a Canadian comedy piece, where he went to Harvard and Princeton and convinced students and profs to sign such petitions as "Stop the Saskatchewan Seal Hunt" and "Stop the Toronto Polar Bear Slaughter".

Being at university doesn't mean you aren't very ignorant outside of your chosen field of study.

Shouldn't we put this in proper context before we do the typical Right-Wing emotional outrage?


Look who you are talking to. Of course not. They've already jumped the shark and are blaming all of PC culture on the actions of the students that signed this petition.



No.. Its more like we are appalled that people can be this dumb to sign it in the first place. It's also worrying that these kids might one day run the country. They may change their minds when they get older, or they may believe its the right thing to do because the Constitution is "antiquated".

Do none of these things cross your mind as even remotely possible?



Please tell me this isn't gonna be you in the future lol.

Those students don't believe that the common people have a right to freedom of speech. Just graduates of Yale, and Harvard and other very predominant colleges get to be heard.

He stated he's old. That is obvious. He shows the symptoms of advanced dementia.

I have come to the conclusion that 99% of college students are complete morons. This is just the latest evidence in a slew of videos I've seen over the years.

I'm glad I'm old. I can't take much more of this crap.




I agree. I smoke like a chimney and drink like a fish, and in the RARE instances I get sick enough to force myself to see a doctor, it's a hoot!

They tell me how I am killing myself, and I just calmly say to them, "Take a look around, who is crazier, me for not carrying anymore or those who come to you to live longer?".

For years I have watched many intelligent, educated people prove one thing. They don't excel much in "common sense". That's something that can't be learned from a book, but from experience in bad and good things from a persons experiences in life!




You are agreeing that 99% of college students are morons because

1) A fake petition in one place
and
2) Your personal lifestyle choices?


Neither make sense to agree with what you agreed with.


Its called hyperbole Reldra, don't be so ignorant as to pretend they quoted 99% as a real statistic. Besides that, it is purely his opinion. He didn't say he just conducted a double blind placebo study that showed 99% of college students are idiots. You could really use a little levity in your life I think.

Does that surprise you? After-all, many of the elite members of skull and bones, along with other elite fraternities of Ivy League schools, followed Rockefeller's and Carnegie's desire to bring only the education needed by America's youth to run his machinery and keep records of their factories into fruition. Most of college students are unaware of that fact. However, the youth of the true elite is as a result of their elite family upbringing. Much of this is well researched and written by notable researchers and authors for all who wish to read. For those who don't have time or are too lazy, a good video on youtube illustrates the issue. The source of the video is Charlotte Iserbyt : the deliberate dumbing down of America.

There is a number of her videos to choose from. Also, she speaks from life experiences and contacts of such fraternities. Her father and grandfather graduated from Yale and were members of skull and bones fraternity around the turn of the century. Her father was the Mayor of small cities in the state of New York and New Jersey. Although a bones-man of Yale, he was known as a nice and honest man and quite popular. He was a bones-man in name only and did not succumb to the activities of his peers in the fraternity.

Charlotte was quite knowledgeable in secret societies in the American spectrum. She discusses her knowledge and has a long list of family connections and researchers to either support her assessments or written books on the subject i.e., "None dare call it conspiracy" by Gary Allen and the research of the Bavarian conspiracy. Her knowledge of the Illuminati and the early planning of the New World Order is eye opening. She was in possession of her father's annual volumes of skull and bones members that only members get from the fraternity. As she peruses the list of members widely known in most homes in America, she often offers "the mud" on all who are major players with scandalistic personalities.

The point here is, America's current situation with a lack of education is not by accident. In fact, what the elite wanted they got/get. The whole desire to educate the individual for his or hers future has been hijacked by Washington bureaucrats at the jest of Wall St. elites to "indoctrinate" the collective to reach the goals of their masters in the new world order domain. Only when one researches the topic to full understanding can one see who, what, when and why our children are so inept in understanding their place in and duties of being an American. Spoil alert: for those who wish to place blame on either political parties, be warned... you will be surprised. And those who can't think beyond simple platitudes will be lost.

Meh. It's just a collection of students. Sure, I find their opinion disturbing, but it's not like it's going to go anywhere. But hey if you want to fill your day with worrying and fretting over something a bunch of dumb college students did, be my guest.

You know, the bottom line here is really pretty simple. They want to revamp the entire bill of rights according to what I've been reading. They want to live in a country where only they decide what can and can't be said; they want to live in a country where no citizens have the right to bear arms. To do this, they're going to have to push for and get a Constitutional convention going to make those changes, and in essence, to do that they would be re-writting the social and political contract between their crappy government and the citizens of the US.

I say Go For It, with the proviso that the States that vote against the changes in effect vote themselves right out of the Union. The bottom line with these fascist bastards is that they want to live in a country without me and people like me in it, i.e. freedom loving, Constitutionalists, and believe me, I'd much rather live in a country without them in it; without people like them proscribing my rights and telling me what I can and can't say, own, etc.

That's the bottom line!

The most alarming part about this thread is that people actually believe that censoring speech is possible. To lack common sense to the extent of being incapable of critically analyzing how impossible it would be to illegalize freedom of speech is just flat out insanity.

ATS has gone off the deep end, most of these members are so blinded by their own hatred of life that they can't even distinguish delusion from reality anymore.

What is interesting to me is that Yale has been having a debate amongst the Faculty and Students as to what is acceptable under free speech on campus. Should racism be tolerated? Should students be free to display racist signs and posters or wear racist Halloween costumes?

Strange that in that very current context the videographer clipped every interaction he had so that we could not hear what he fully told any student before they signed?

Here is the debate the faculty and students have been having about the freedom to be racist on campus..
yaledailynews.com...

Just sayin...a fox news video heavily edited? ... ideological agenda hit-piece for certain. How much truth there is to the video I can't tell from the video itself...I would have liked it run for just one full conversation so I understood his pitch.

Just goes to show you can't teach intelligence.

You either have it or you don't.

Those YALE students DON'T.

Yeah, I just checked on that because no one seems to want to know. Between 50-60 students signed this. Out of an enrollment of 12,000 students. Not what I would call a representative number. In 12,000 people you're going to come across a small percentage of those that are oblivious.

As was already pointed out.

That number should be ZERO.

That's not what the 1st means.
If you support it you must support their right to be oblivious.

Did they ask 60 students to sign or 12,000 students to sign?
