The “liberal elites” apparently don’t have to play by the same rules the rest of us do.
“We should allow anyone into our country…, while I live in at a walled and gated estate that keep all of the undesirables out.”
“We should ban the use of fossil fuels and promote public transportation…, while I hop around in private jets and chauffeur driven limousines.”
“We should keep increasing the funding for our pathetic public education system…, while I send all of my kids to private schools.”
“We should admonish the white middle class, make them feel guilty and create divisions between the races based on their “white privilege”…, while I actually take advantage of my rich, white, liberal elitist privileges.”
…and the list could go on and on and on.
According to Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin of Fox News, “Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among more than four dozen people charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal that involved wealthy individuals paying up to $6.5 million to place their children into elite universities, according to court records.”
“More than four dozen were charged.” Would anyone care to wager how many people go to jail? My money would be on no one. They may end up paying some additional fines, which will mean nothing to them, but that will be about it.
“The alleged scam, which placed students into top colleges such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas, was run by William Rick Singer, from California, who helped parents get their children admission through bribes, court documents unsealed in Boston showed. Officials have been investigating the case, named ‘Operation Varsity Blues,’ for more than a year.”
“Singer, who authorities said will plead guilty to racketeering, ran the charity, Key Worldwide Foundation, which received $25 million in total to guarantee the admissions, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said during a Tuesday news conference. The charitable foundation was allegedly used as a front to run the scam.”
“The racketeering conspiracy charges were unsealed Tuesday against the coaches at schools including Georgetown, Wake Forest University and the University of Southern California. Authorities say the coaches accepted bribes in exchange for admitting students as athletes, regardless of their ability.”
So to make it worse, these privileged liberal elites took spots away from other student athletes who really needed these scholarships to have an opportunity to attend college at all.
“Most of the students did not know their admission to the school was due to a bribe, authorities said, but in some cases, the children and their parents took part in the scheme.”
Excuse me. What? So you’re saying in some cases the parents or the children were not aware of what was going on? You’re saying they paid all of this money but didn’t know what they were giving it away for? Or you’re saying these other people paid millions of dollars to help out of the goodness of their hearts?
‘“Singer would accommodate what parents wanted to do,’ U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said, adding that it ‘appears that the schools are not involved’ except for a USC administrator who was charged.”
Ohhhh nooooo…, of course none of the schools were involved! Except one lowly administrator who is going to take the fall for all of them.
‘“There can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy and there will not be a separate criminal justice system either,’ Lelling said. “We’re not talking about donating a building so a school is more likely to take your son or daughter, we’re talking about deception or fraud.’”
Truer words were never spoken!
But true words are spoken all of the time.
Who really believes that this is not going to keep right on happening though?
You can’t see me…, but my hand is up.
“Singer would help his clients’ children by having another individual take SAT or ACT tests on behalf of the students, officials said. Parents would allegedly pay up to $75,000 for each test and wire money to ‘charitable accounts.’”
‘“Singer used the purported charitable donations from parents, at least in part, to bribe two SAT and ACT test administrators,’ court documents stated.”
“He would discuss with his clients what SAT or ACT score they desired for their children that were impressive but ‘not too impressive.’ He would then instruct Mark Riddell, of Palmetto, Florida, to take the exams for the students, or ‘replace the students’ exam responses with his own.’ Riddell had been working with Singer since 2011, documents stated.”
Beautiful…, just beautiful.
So these students didn’t think it was odd that they had SAT or ACT scores when they hadn’t even taken the test?
“In a January interview with Parade, actor William H. Macy discussed how ‘stressful’ applying to colleges had been.”
Ha! Do tell William H.! Tell us how stressful it has been when everything had been pre-arranged!
‘“She’s going to go to college [Macy talking about his daughter]…, we’re right now in the thick of college application time, which is so stressful,’ Macy said. ‘I am voting that once she gets accepted, she maybe takes a year off. God doesn’t let you be 18 twice…, But it’s just my opinion, and we’ll see what she wants to do, what Felicity thinks and how the chips fall.’”
What a lyin’ piece of disingenuous liberal garbage. Yessss, we’ll just have to see what Fe-li-ci-ty wants to do. Especially since you already knew how the “chips were going to fall.”
“Several colleges, including Yale, University of Texas and USC, released statements following Tuesday’s news conference saying they were ‘victims’ of the bribery scheme.”
Believe me…, all of these billion dollar universities are a lot of things…, but a “victim” is not one of them.
So next time one our liberal elitist friends decides to lecture us on how to behave, who to vote for, and what to believe…, just remember who they are really looking out for…, themselves and their elitist friends.
