Mike Rowe is the host of the television show Dirty Jobs. He’s never one to mince words, much like many other anti establishment conservatives.
On Wednesday he addressed Hampshire College’s final decision to cease flying the American flag. Breitbart reports he also commented on the burning of the flag by students at American University. It was all to protest the election of Donald Trump.
The best part of his entire speech was when he pointed out the hypocrisy of it all. Most notably, he pointed out that despite the fact that these millennial college students are going to extreme measures to protest Donald Trump’s election they have no problem taken students loans from the he government whose flag they are burning.
Speaking of Hampshire President Jonathan Lash he said they should educate students,
“about the undeniable fact that no country on the planet affords its citizens more liberty than this one.”
Rowe emphases how ridiculous it was for the school to allow students to pay for their tuition with,
“federal dollars provided by the same government whose flag was no longer suitable to fly at his school.”
Watch Rowe go off.
A larger excerpt from his interesting speech can be read below,
“As I dropped one of those giant round ice cubes into a tumbler of Whistle Pig, I couldn’t help but wonder if President Lash was unaware that billions of people around the world are routinely subjected to horrific levels of racism, misogyny, and bigotry that far exceed any injustice in modern-day America. Furthermore, I was curious to know if President Lash really believed that removing our flag is a better way to assuage the fears of his frightened students, than simply educating them about the undeniable fact that no country on the planet affords its citizens more liberty than this one? Finally, I found myself wondering as to why the President of Hampshire College would allow his students to pay for their tuition with federal dollars – federal dollars provided by the same government whose flag was no longer suitable to fly at his school.
We the People are enabling schools like Hampshire to sell a liberal arts degree for approximately $250,000. With $1.3 trillion dollars of student debt currently on the books, I found myself thinking how nice it would be to hear a more persuasive argument from those who will happily take money from a country whose flag they despise.
I turned the channel, and watched another group of students dance around another pile of burning flags at another expensive university. I couldn’t tell where they were, but occurred to me that wherever they were – it probably wasn’t a trade school. To my knowledge, no one has ever burned a flag at a trade school.”
Rowe has a valid point. All this whining, crying, now protesting achieves absolutely nothing and is the height of liberal snowflake hypocrisy. If you are going to talk the talk you better be able to walk the walk. It is nothing more than armchair liberalism.
They will stand up and scream from the mountain tops but they are not willing to do anything tangible to achieve the change they so desperately want. The little they are doing is a disgrace to the very country they take money from.
