Yale student op-ed: Charity is not enough your money must be TAKEN from you
Headline of the Day ^ | December 5, 2017 | T.A. Reid

‘We have an obligation to redistribute’

The holiday season is upon us, and leave it to an Ivy Leaguer to play the role of the proverbial stick in the mud.

Writing in the Yale Daily News, guest columnist Xuan (who uses the pronouns “they” and “them”) invokes the United States’ “legacy of colonialism, exploitation, slavery and genocide” to argue that Americans’ personal charity isn’t “quite enough” nor “all of morality.”

They offer examples of a shady used car salesman and a sketchy entrepreneur who, after screwing over people in the past attempt to make good later in life through charitable giving.

“This would be academic if we were nothing like these ‘protagonists’ — individuals who have benefited from either violence, deception or exploitation,” Xuan writes. “Yet, I [shouldn’t that be “we” if one uses the pronoun “they”?] think a little bit of reflection suggests that many of our lives are closer to theirs than we might like to think.”

I wonder if Mr. Xuan is there on his own (or his family’s) money or some sort of scholarship spigot.

Do you really want to kill someone just because they are picking your pocket?

Committees coming to your door demanding you turn over your money and bank cards followed by a truck and others demanding your food.

A posturing imbecile. His absurd theories simply lack intellectual substance.

It will be a cold day in hell before I will take advice from anyone named "Xuan". In fact, this sumbitsh "they" should probably be reported to ICE.

Mr Xuan is exercising his first amendment rights.

Should he go beyond that right, and infringe upon mine, I'll use my second amendment rights.

These left-wing little college $hits should be harvested for organs.

If you don’t want to, snowflakes, then you must be forced. It’s the same commie principle the college snowflakes are advocating.

Do you really want to kill someone just because they are picking your pocket?

Does someone really want to take the chance of pickpocketing someone else, knowing they have the possibility of being killed.

The onus is always on the criminal, not on the victim.
