This is of a piece with the Dinesh D’Souza story from Saturday. Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro was invited to give a talk at a high school in California. About mid-way into the talk, one of the schools educrats cut off his speech and dismissed students because Shapiro had said something so outrageous that it “crossed the line” of acceptable discourse.
What did he say? He said that a lot of times, poor people are poor because they make bad financial choices.
“The reason people are permanently poor in the United States,” Shapiro said, “isn’t because they don’t have money, it’s because they suck with money. The reasons people are temporarily poor can vary.” As a rumble ran through the crowd, Shapiro continued, “That’s not even controversial. If you’re permanently poor [in America] for your entire life, you’re not great with money by definition…”
That’s when Nafarrete stepped in and dismissed the students.
As they left, Shapiro told Breitbart News, Nafarrete stated that he had to let the students go in order to “protect” their feelings, since many came from low-income homes.
Not to mention, teaching people that they, and not the Government, are responsible for their own economic security is Blasphemy Against the Progressive State.
