clemson banana hoaxBy failing to comply with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the university is remaining tight-lipped about whether the banana incident was a race hoax or not.

    These hoaxes should carry the same punishment as the “real thing”.

    Strike Clemson off the list of potential colleges to send my kids.

    Socialism is the message, Marxism is the strategy and Fascism is the goal…

    Democrats lost America’s first Civil War because they enslaved Black people. Democrats are going to lose America’s second Civil War because they attempted to enslave everyone else…

    Not every Democrat was a KuKluxKlan member, but every KuKluxKlan member was a democrat.

    When peaceful recourse is denied, violent redress becomes justified, it becomes manifold.

    So we can safely conclude this was a hoax: Black “students” hanging a bunch of bananas to provoke sympathy, media attention and outrage.

    Without hoaxes, campus leftists would be ignored.

    To keep the hysteria alive, they’ve moved from micro-aggression to nano- and pico-aggressions.

    This is one of those times when no reply is all the reply you need to know the answer.

    If you use that as a metric, your kids won’t go to college at all 🙂

    I will keep asking black leaders at all levels – define success to you. I have experienced black privilege all of my working life (45 years). Black leaders still shout racism, etc. I want to know what they consider success because I for one won’t bow to them.

    Why is there even a question about this? Of course it was a hoax. Flip a coin 100 times–if it lands on its edge all 100 times, it’s a real “hate crime”. Otherwise: HOAX.

    There are many going to college that would be better served not doing so. The “Top” tier schools seem to be having the most nonsense going on.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that 99.9% of all ‘victims’ relating their story in the press that are based on sexism, racism, or LGBT issues are faked. Any reaction is geared toward believing the victim and no press member every investigates prior to braying the ‘sad’ news. Especially if it occurs on a university/college campus…

    I am finding it hard to disagree with this assessment. Another chapter in how low universities/colleges have become.

    It didn’t seem to fit the piece in any of its several senses. An argument should be as concise as possible, but not moreso. For example, the opening “sentence” (ending with an ellipsis!) is anything but crisp. There is much overlap in socialism, Marxism and fascism, so that differentiating them for message, strategy and goal is quite unclear, at least to this reader. Clear writing evinces clear thought.
