Nobody's Opinion

Nobody’s Perfect: Brandeis University VS Topeka High School

Nobody’s Perfect

This week, we have two American schools that are in contention for the Nobody’s Perfect Award: Brandeis University in Boston, VS High Schools in Topeka, Kansas.

It seems the administrators of both these institutions invited two very famous ladies to talk at their universities, but…they ran into some complications they didn’t expect:

Let’s start with Brandeis: Brandeis Universily

Not too long ago, Ayaan Hirsi—a woman who reminds you that all Hillary Clinton has done in life was push the wrong red button— was invited to speak at Brandeis University to receive an award for being such a great advocate for Muslim women’s rights.

After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. More than 85 of the 350 faculty members signed a letter getting her booted off the honorary degree recipient. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement.

She was…Islamaphobic. ( I love it when liberals make up big names don’t you?)

You would be too if you had lived her life:

Ms Ali was raised a strict Muslim, survived a civil war, genital mutilation, beatings and an arranged marriage, and this was BEFORE she met Bill Clinton! (Sorry, I thought you might like to know the joke going on in my other mind))— and then, she renounced her faith and bravely worked with others to get out the message. She had to flee to the United States to save her own life. Muslim hero

And here’s why Brandeis University decided to cancel her: She had once said:

” Once it’s defeated, (Islam) it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.”

Yep, that’s what got her in trouble. Obama has declared, “We are not at war with Islam and never will be.”

Over 3800 online signatures tried to get her reinstated, but Hey…it’s Boston.

And then we come to Topeka, Kansas. Michelle Obama decided, at the last-minute, that she would come to Topeka’s graduation class and give a big historical shout out to the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court, Brown vs. Board of Education,, brought against Topeka by some African-American parents. Topeka Kansas

You think Michelle would let THAT historical race market by without a big photo-op and propaganda message?

(Will she bring Oprah?)

Much to her surprise, over 2,000 people have signed a petition telling her to stay away.

Here’s what the petition said:

“We are honored to have the First Lady speak at commencement and the student body was literally crying and jumping for joy when the news was announced and we are in no way shape or form ungrateful for what the Board has done for us.

There are problems that come with the combining of the commencements. First of all, for most families in 501, money is short and we have spent hundreds of dollars buying graduation announcements that are now incorrect. The district has stated they will not refund this. Topeka High School’s graduation on its own takes approximately two and a half hours. The combining of five high schools will increase that to about six hours. With increased security the total time will be brought up to eight hours. Secondly, families have many people coming from states away taking sick leave to see the graduation. They will come to Topeka, only to find that they cannot be involved. Those with divorced families have to choose which side of the family they want to invite, this doesn’t even include siblings.”

Not to mention, everybody’s plans, and parties will be ruined because of the hordes of FBI and secret service that will be in town…streets will be shut down, hotel rooms already rented will be canceled. The ceremony will be 8 hours long and good luck finding a bathroom. Parents wait their whole lifetime for this event, but do you think that is going to stop the African Queen? Do you think she cares if people suffer by her decision?

THINK AGIAN!

So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?Michelle obama not welcome

The faculty of Topeka, Kansas who did not say, “Well, we love to have you dear, but it would be much better if we just set up a big screen and have you deliver your message from the White House.” OR —the faculty of Brandeis University who did not want to offend their Muslim men donors?

You know what? I’m picking a winner: Topeka Kansas.

It’s one thing to ruin a hero’s life Ayaan Hirsi Ali..that’s just one life, and I’ve heard her speak. Her light only grew stronger from the snub. From what she has gone through…getting ditched by a bunch of elites is a laugh.

And Michelle, If I may say so myself: It’s immensely rude, and egotistical to ruin the lives of thousands of people’s one day of jubilation, just because you want to make a political speech to help your image.

Obama’s star is fading, and that’s why we are seeing Michelle everywhere.

So, congratulations Topeka! You win! Have fun!

  1. And isn’t it amazing snopercod, that half the nation cannot see that very distinct difference in the two women?

    • It’s very weird. Women in general seem to hate Sarah Palin – even many conservative women – and I have no idea why that might be. OTOH, after all this time, I have no idea how the female mind works, either. I’m no fan of Sigmund Freud, but I share his consternation when he said, “Women, what do they want???”

  2. I compare Mooshelle’s lack of consideration for the students and families of Topeka with that of Sarah Palin. Until this year, Sarah Palin declined to attend the Iditarod Musher’s Banquet because she knew her presence would steal the spotlight from the real heros, the mushers. The banquet is held on the Thursday before the race start, and over a thousand people attend to meet the mushers and raise money for the race. Sarah and Todd are big fans of the Iditarod sled dog race and otherwise would have attended, but they didn’t out of consideration for the mushers. The Palins are a class act, unlike Mooshelle.

    P.S. Loved the Clinton joke from your other mind!
