(This'll be fun) Van "White Lash" Jones to give Loyola (N.O.) Commencement Speech
nola.com article

quote:

CNN political commentator Anthony Kapel "Van" Jones will deliver the 2017 commencement address at Loyola University New Orleans, spokeswoman Patricia Murret said Tuesday (April 4). The ceremony takes place May 13 at the Superdome.

Jones focused on green jobs at the Obama White House. His three Dream Corps projects work to shrink the prison population, diversify the technology industry and protect the environment while strengthening the economy. He will receive an honorary degree.

Loyola just needs to give the campus over to Tulane because it's no longer relevant.

I hope they scream expletives at him, assault him and run him off the stage and then set fire to their campus and then get fawning coverage on CNN and MSNBC.

Oh, he's a progressive? Never mind. Carry on...

In related news, I will continue to throw all "Loyola New Orleans Alumni Association" letters immediately in the lobby trashcan as I sort my mail.

Tulane Law sees your Van Jones and raises you Cedric Richmond.

I agree. Never going to get another dollar from me. And I loved that school.

I never gave them anything to begin with after suffering through my leftist freshman year before "wisening up" as the great Bill O'Reilly would say and transferring to LSU on TOPS for free

Good job, Loyola. You are inviting a self avowed Communist to give a commencement speech to your graduates. And we wonder why millennials act & think like they do...........

I am graduating in May from Loyola, and let me tell you we are not very happy that Van Jones will be there. Really irritates me that I have paid so much money to get my graduate degree and now have to sit and listen to this disgraced windbag

When did you go to Loyola? Van Jones is almost conservative compared to some of the political activism there in the 80's.

I went in 93-98 and there was no political activism that I noticed at all. And I'm pretty conservative.

Higher Ed is almost universally a shitstain because the kook left that was bombing admin buildings in the 60's is the admin now.

Interesting. I always thought of it as a liberal school, but I guess that goes in waves.
