RUSH: My question, why do people go to school? How would you answer that? When you send your kids to college, why? What do you hope the result is? Are you hoping they come out of there educated? Are you hoping they come out of there prepared?
Are you hoping they come out of there with their minds intact and they haven’t been corrupted by liberalism? Are you hoping they come out of there able to make a lot of money? What are you hoping for? You send people to college because that’s just what we do. You don’t have a chance if you don’t go to college. It’s just the thing to do. It’s still a source of great pride to have a child graduate college. That’s a big deal. But what is the purpose for most people going?
In the case of these people seeking reparations, what do they want? They want money. Obviously, the reparations movement is about one thing, and it’s about — well, it’s about one thing, money, but the premise behind their expectation of money is multifaceted. But they want reparations in the form of free tuition. But is a degree in “hands up, don’t shoot” studies guaranteed to make them a lot of money? My point is, is getting a college degree, is that equal to making a good living? Is it a guarantee to acquiring money?
Look. It’s a multifaceted answer. College can teach you how to shake people down. College can teach you how to cheat. College can teach you how to blow up the university. College can teach you how to deny conservatives. It can teach you a lot of things. This is my point: Why do you send your kids there? Okay, granted. If you want to be a doctor, you have to go, at least for now you have to go. If you want to be a lawyer, you have to go. Those reasons are obvious. But if you’re going to college for a degree in “hands up, don’t shoot” studies, say, or anything else, why are you there? Why are your parents sending you there? Why do your parents want you to go there?
