President Obama doesn’t appear to be shrinking away from the limelight at all as the date from his White House departure approaches. If anything, Obama is showing that he’ll attempt to remain relevant — a struggle indeed — instead of focusing on transitioning to the new Donald Trump administration.
A headline-seeking Obama even had the comeuppance to say if he’d been running for a third term, he would have beaten Donald Trump. Can someone please wake up ol’ Barry Soetoro from his dream (our nightmare) and tell him this is America, and we have term limits on our presidents — and should have on our Congress.
Now, I must confide in y’all that there are three categories of folks who would vote for a third Obama presidential term — stupid, stuck on stupid, and a special kind of stupid.
Obama also recently stated he’d be interested in being a kind of talent scout for the Democrat Party. Yep, Obama will be hosting a new reality TV show called “American Progressive Socialist Idol.” Instead of Ryan Seacrest, we’ll have Barack Obama scouring the country looking for the top little acolyte to follow in his footsteps.
And based on this recent story, I can tell you the first place where Obama should begin looking for future little Karl Marx and Margaret Sanger ideological clones.
As reported by Campus Reform, “Students at the University of Maryland have released a list of 64 demands in their effort make the campus more amenable to “marginalized student populations.”
The project, known as ProtectUMD, is a collaborative effort between 25 student organizations at the University of Maryland, including Students for Justice in Palestine, Bisexuals at Maryland, and the Black Student Union.
There are 64 demands across 8 subsets of students—Marginalized, American Indian, Black, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Pro-Palestine, and Undocumented—including scholarships for “students of marginalized communities,” a ban on Columbus Day, beginning every on-campus event with an acknowledgement that “this is Indigenous Land,” that African American professors get tenure, that preferred pronouns are included on rosters, and that “queer diversity training” is required.
Among the Pro-Palestine demands, students want the administration to condemn the “conflation of Pro-Palestinian activism with Anti-Semitism,” claiming that “Pro-Palestinians do not reject the human rights of any group of people.” No Jewish student organizations have signed onto the list

Among the Pro-Palestine demands, students want the administration to condemn the “conflation of Pro-Palestinian activism with Anti-Semitism,” claiming that “Pro-Palestinians do not reject the human rights of any group of people.” No Jewish student organizations have signed onto the list[duh, ya think?]. Demand #53 calls for the university to actively encourage students to learn about the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS). The Pro-Palestine demands are incompatible with the beliefs of the Jewish student organizations on campus, leading the student groups Terps for Israel, the Jewish Student Union, and J Street U to abstain from the project. Students for Justice in Palestine declined to answer questions from Campus Reform, as did every other organization that was contacted.
“I think [these demands] are ridiculously easy [to accomplish],” said Muslim Student Association member Khaled Nurhssien [why of course you think it’s easy Khaled — hmm, have you read the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memorandum, fella?] told The Diamondback. “We commend the students for their passionate advocacy [i.e. Obamaesque community organizing] and for coming together in solidarity on these issues,” a university spokesperson told Campus Reform. “President Loh has convened a group of his staff to thoroughly review the list of demands and make recommendations accordingly. That process is well underway.”
Ok, let’s have some holiday cheer with this comical endeavor. First of all, who are these cupcakes, snowflakes, and chuckleheads to make “demands” for “marginalized student populations?” Shall we now believe individual choices make one “marginalized?”
I mean c’mon man, who are these folks? Well, the three aforementioned categories come to mind, who are more concerned about this foolishness than making good grades and graduating.
Yep, it’s confirmed — our college and university campuses are petri dishes for the viral contagion known as progressive socialism. But, ask yourself, what happens when these lovely little cherubs go out into the real world? Shall they make demands for “marginalized employee populations?” Oh yes, we already have that — they’re called fat cat union leaders.
Needless to say, it does appear that the University of Maryland administration will be cowering to the occupants of the insane asylum. Let’s not kid ourselves, when you read how the head of Apple, Tim Cook, has to explain to disgruntled employees about why he met with the incoming president of the United States, this phenomenon, this virus, is spreading. This is a residual effect of the culture of the participation trophy along with the appeasement of the kid throwing the tantrum in the cereal aisle in the grocery store. Now, a real adult in charge at the University of Maryland would simply tell these student to pound sand, go study, and graduate — the equivalent of buying the oatmeal instead of the Fruit Loops.
Now, let’s go down the road of comparative analysis…what if Christian students demanded a prayer room in each building and shuttle service to a local church? Yep, all those secular humanist groups like the Freedom from Religion Foundation in Madison Wisconsin would be just going nuts!
Last time I checked, the University of Maryland was a state school, meaning it receives taxpayer funding from the government, so if these prayer rooms are constructed for Muslim students, is that not government support of a religion? After all, a Middle School football coach can’t even kneel and bow his head in silence with his team. And let me share with y’all what happens with conservative student groups on college campuses. They’re raked over the coals and forced to beg for a meeting space. Many aren’t even allowed on campus — I guess they should just make demands.
Hey, Khaled, and all y’all, this is absurd, and what chaps my tail is that one of your demands is against a movie about an American hero, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Who the heck are y’all to demand a movie depicting his life not be shown? Doggone, I want you to look in the face of his widow, Taya Kyle, and make that demand. Something tells me it might not end up well for you pajama boys. And what happens during college basketball season if Maryland loses? Do you make demands of the opposing team to give back points?
Yes, President Obama, this is your pool of recruits, but understand something, there are more of us, everyday patriotic Americans, than these whiners, wimps, and wussies…that was proved on November 8th.
Furthermore, we’re out recruiting and developing the next generation of constitutional conservatives on college campuses, and in our high schools — that’s what Young America’s Foundation is all about. I implore you sir, continue to seek out these kids who seek to be victims. We’ll seek out victors, and guess who wins in the end? Go ahead Barack, and be the talent scout for those who cry when they don’t get what they want.
We’ll raise up the next generation that cries when they hear our National Anthem played, or when Taps is played for a fallen American Warrior. Go right ahead Obama, and find the new leadership of the Democrat Party from the ranks of “marginalized populations.” We’ll teach, coach, and mentor the future leaders of America from those who are empowered regardless of where they come from, or where they were born…as they know what unites isn’t centered on identity politics, but identity as an American.
I know it’s after Christmas, so here’s my New Year’s gift to the Democrat National Committee — and President Obama — a shovel. Y’all are digging yourselves a really deep hole, and we want to help. My parting words to these “students” at Maryland making demands? Grow up kids, life ain’t about demanding what you want. In America, it’s about earning it. And you don’t earn anything just because YOU feel “marginalized.”
