The far left has no clue what responsibility is. This is nothing new, of course, we’ve seen all kinds of demands from the far left to forgive all of their debts, to give them all manner of free stuff, just because they don’t want to pay for it. But now, even if they get it for free, these entitlement happy morons, they don’t want to take responsibility for their own failures.
Students at Oberlin College are now demanding that the college eliminate any grades that fall below a C for the semester. Because apparently, earning good grades is just too much of an expectation, so now everyone deserves to get them, no matter how badly they do in their classes.
But why are they failing their classes? Because these special snowflake are so busy protesting absolutely everything under the sun, they have no time to actually go to classes, much less study or have the slightest clue what degree they’re supposed to be going for.
“A lot of us worked alongside community members in Cleveland who were protesting,” said Megan Bautista, a co-liaison in Oberlin’s student government. “But we needed to organize on campus as well — it wasn’t sustainable to keep driving 40 minutes away. A lot of us started suffering academically.” Well sure, because you were doing everything except what you were supposed to be doing! Come on, you’re supposed to be adults! That means you have to have some priorities and if you choose not to go to class, not to learn what you’re supposed to learn, then you’re going to fail.
But the far left doesn’t want any responsibility. “You know, we’re paying for a service. We’re paying for our attendance here. We need to be able to get what we need in a way that we can actually consume it,“ student Zakiya Acey said. “Because I’m dealing with having been arrested on campus, or having to deal with the things that my family are going through because of larger systems — having to deal with all of that, I can’t produce the work that they want me to do. But I understand the material, and I can give it to you in different ways.” Well maybe you ought to get a better set of priorities and not get arrested or any of that other nonsense!
And sure, paying for a service. That’s why they follow the idiotic Bernie Sanders school of “give us free college!” They don’t want to have to pay for anything and they don’t want to have to earn anything, they want to do what they want to do with no ramifications and everyone else better cough it up or else! So no more bad grades, no matter how well deserved. School gets in the way of protesting, but they need those feminist studies degrees so they can pretend they tried, even if nobody will hire them because they all have criminal records by the time they get out of college.
The world is going straight to hell and the regressive left is leading the way. Is it any wonder the future is so dim?
