***LIVE UPDATES*** Campus Crazies on ‘Million Student March’
Breitbart ^ | November 12th, 2015 | by Allum Bokhari & Milo Yiannopoulos

Posted on 11/12/2015 2:33:30 PM PST by Mariner

Student demonstrations are set to engulf the U.S. today in the ‘Million Student March’, as activists from campuses around the country stage a day of protests against tuition fees and student debt, further inflamed by recent social justice protests at Yale and Missouri.

A statement from the activists reads: “We are people of all colors, genders, and sexual orientation, and we are united to fight for education as a human right.” Protesters are calling for tuition-free public college, cancellation of student debt, and a $15 minimum wage for college workers… plus a lot of other stuff about “straight white male patriarchy” and rape culture on campus.

The atmosphere is likely to be particularly charged given that the day of protests occurs after a week of political unrest on U.S campuses, particularly Yale and the University of Missouri, over racial issues. Breitbart News will bring you live updates from around the country as the protests unfold.

We just have to buck up and stop funding this nonsense.

Cut student loan funding and State University/College funding by 10% per year until such time as the administrators and educators drive some reasonable change into this corrupt, anti-American culture.

Deport them all to Syria, so they can get a real-world education.

For most, nothing. And that's part of the problem.

Where is the student outrage against the cushy pension plans of academia, which make up a large percentage of college tuition costs?

The idea for the march was sparked by comments that presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made earlier this year

Together, we can build an independent movement capable of winning tuition-free public college, a cancellation of all student debt, and a $15/hr minimum wage for all campus workers!

Better throw in a thousand or two per month for room and board and beer money, also.

Hey, got a great idea, how about handing all those students brooms and mops, fire all the campus staff, and apply what would have gone into wages into a ‘debt forgiveness’ account. Students can apply each of their hours, after the work has been approved, in exchange for $15 of student debt forgiveness.

I don’t know, it may blow up in their faces because it’s getting a lot of people ticked off.

The group “Young Democratic Socialists” is the Democrat Socialists of America - the same group that installed Obama.
