I think we can all agree that it’s incredibly hard to get accepted into college these days.
Now you can argue over whether or not the massive price of college tuition is even worth it, considering the bleak job market and the increasing demand for lucratively-paid tradesmen.
But the fact remains that competition to get into a college is fierce. That is doubly so for the few prestigious universities in America.
Students are told they must have stellar grades, but that is not enough. They need to score high on the SAT’s, but that is not enough.
So perhaps it might be a bit infuriating to the millions of high school students who get rejected to learn that one student used politics and virtue signaling to get into Standard.
Queue the outrage… now!
From Daily Mail:
A Bangladeshi-American student says he was accepted into Stanford after only writing #BlackLivesMatter 100 times for the essay portion of his application.
Ziad Ahmed, a student at the $34,600-a-year Princeton Day School in New Jersey, publicized his acceptance letter from the prestigious California school on Twitter on Friday, alongside a copy of his unusual essay.
Ahmed said he was surprised his answer paid off.
‘I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted,’ Ahmed said in an email to Mic.
‘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.’
Yes, in today’s world, writing #BlackLivesMatter over and over again on a college essay is considered “unapologetic activism.”
Our standards in colleges and universities is so low that this kid was able to spew nonsense on his form and get accepted into such a highly-prized school. Why? Because that nonsense is popular, liberal garbage.
You might also want to know that Mr. Ahmed represents everything wrong with modern liberals and college culture.
He, a non-black man, said this: “Black lives have been explicitly and implicitly told they don’t matter for centuries, and as a society – it is our responsibility to scream that black lives matter.”
Right. A kid who is not black and has not suffered what black people suffered, got a pass because he is virtue signaling all over the place. As if he cares about black lives. Plus there’s this:
Now the picture is coming clear. This little liberal is part of the elitist core of the worst of the worst. He campaigned for Hillary’s failed bid for the White House. And even spoke at a TED event about how hard it is to be a Muslim in America.
Yet it seems like he can do anything and the red carpet gets rolled out for him.
In liberal circles if you are considered a part of the “right” category of people, they will treat you like a god. Homosexual men enjoy privileges among liberal women that few could imagine.
And today, because Muslims have been put at the top of their pyramid of victimhood, this virtue signaling fraud can appear at the White House, speak at a TED event, and get into Standard despite a pathetic essay.
That is the modern left. They reward people because of their race, religion, or sexuality, not their character or accomplishments.
And they wonder why they keep losing.
