What if I told you I got admitted to Princeton University by doing a “neat card trick”?
Silly, right? Universities require things like grades and ability and ambition. You know, intellectual stuff.
Of course, looking at the behavior and apparent intellectual level of professors these days, one wonders just how far the American education system has fallen.
And it’s apparently very easy to enter a prestigious hall of higher learning, particularly if you ensure that your entrance essay includes words such as, “White Privilege, Blackness, Climate Change, Sustainability, Green Energy, and Diversity.”
Throw in a couple of letters like, “B-L-M,” or “L-B-G-T-Q” and you’re gold with a fully paid scholarship!
Ziad Ahmed found out that all he had to do in order to begin his Stanford education was Tweet #BlackLivesMatter 100 times!
Yep, the organization that might be more violent and outrageously racist than any other “movement” operating today is obviously the trump card for colleges.
“When Ziad Ahmed was asked ‘What matters to you, and why?’ on his Stanford University application, only one thing came to mind: #BlackLivesMatter.
So for his answer, Ahmed — who is a senior at Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey — wrote #BlackLivesMatter exactly 100 times. The risky decision paid off. On Friday, Ahmed received his acceptance letter from Stanford.
‘I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted,’ Ahmed said in an email. ‘I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability.’

Alas, Ahmed here (and let’s not pretend his name didn’t factor into his admission) was accepted with open arms because he had the ‘right’ opinion, regardless of being a talentless hack.
Nothing but the correct opinion seems to matter to the left — when it comes to news, entertainment or intellectual curiosity. ‘Espouse our narrative, be admitted to Stanford,’ should be the new salutation on their letterhead. #IvyLeaguesAreDead
There is no doubt that Stanford University has finally jumped the shark here.
If you’re not familiar with the term (and looking for a good laugh) Google it. Stanford University, with this latest faux pas, has done to its reputation what The X-Files did in replacing Fox Mulder.
Can you say, “death knell?”
