To the Board of Trustees; Congresswoman Beatty; Mayor Coleman; and all of you who make up The Ohio State University for allowing me to join you -- it is an incredible honor.
And most of all, congratulations, Class of 2013!
I'd just like to remind all of you that your student loan debt can't be eliminated by bankruptcy, so don't even try it. Enjoy trying to find a job in this ruined economy, especially if you have to face structural discrimination because you're White.
I very much appreciate the President’s introduction. I will not be singing today.
It's hard to believe this empty suit is a two term President.
It’s Sunday and I'm coming off a foreign trip.
I was in Libya making sure that something like the Benghazi incident would never happen again...ha ha, just kidding! I was sucking brown chorizos in may-hee-co. By the way, good luck competing for lousy jobs against 30 million illegal immigrants that are about to be given full citizenship.
But, Class of 2013, your path to this moment has wound you through years of breathtaking change. You were born as freedom forced its way through a wall in Berlin, tore down an Iron Curtain across Europe.
I was in deep depression for many days after this setback for my beloved communism.
You were educated in an era of instant information that put the world’s accumulated knowledge at your fingertips. And you came of age as terror touched our shores; and an historic recession spread across the nation; and a new generation signed up to go to war.
Consider that today, 50 ROTC cadets in your graduating class will become commissioned officers in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. A hundred and thirty of your fellow graduates have already served -- some in combat, some on multiple deployments.
I never served, of course. When I was your age I was a marxist activist and a drug addict. Very little has changed, really.
There is a word for this. It’s citizenship. And we don’t always talk about this idea much these days -- citizenship -- let alone celebrate it. Sometimes, we see it as a virtue from another time, a distant past.
Maybe the current bi-partisan suicide pact that will bring in 30 million illegal brown scumbags has something to do with why "citizenship" has been cheapened.
When bombs went off in Boston, and when a malevolent spree of gunfire visited a movie theater, a temple, an Ohio high school, a 1st grade classroom in Connecticut, we saw citizenship. In the aftermath of darkest tragedy, we have seen the American spirit at its brightest.
Please ignore how suspicious those incidents were. The American spirit at its brightest = laying down for the erosion of rights from a government run amok. Give up your guns, Whitey. Become a slave. Die. It's the right thing to do.
We’ve seen the petty divisions of color and class and creed replaced by a united urge to help each other.
And that's what citizenship is. It’s at the heart of our founding -- that as Americans, we are blessed with God-given talents and inalienable rights, but with those rights come responsibilities -- to ourselves, and to one another, and to future generations.
Nothing screams responsibility to the future generations like a 16 trillion and counting sin debt, worthless federal reserve counterfeiting, high-risk loans to garbage people, punitive taxation, no national vision, sickening mainstream "culture," rotting cities, open borders, foreign war, etc, etc, etc.
I think it’s fair to say our democracy isn’t working as well as we know it can. It could do better.
When The Republic dies we're left with corrupt democracy. Then the collapse.
To conquer fascism and disease; to visit the Moon and Mars; to gradually secure our God-given rights for all of our citizens, regardless of who they are, or what they look like, or who they love.
To wallow in the mud, to create Detroit Rot City and the Chicago Plantation, to pour billions into a failed race and be rewarded with negro pathology, to remove God, to have progressive stacks where different victim groups compete for special treatment while Whites are firmly at the bottom.
Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems; some of these same voices also doing their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.
Class of 2013, only you can ultimately break that cycle. Only you can make sure the democracy you inherit is as good as we know it can be. But it requires your dedicated, and informed, and engaged citizenship. And that citizenship is a harder, higher road to take, but it leads to a better place. It’s how we built this country -- together.
