Keely Mullen, featured in the above video, is a junior majoring in political science and sociology at Northeastern University.  Tuition and fees at Northeastern are 42K a year.  Judging from the above video her parents should demand back every penny they have paid to Northeastern in an obviously futile effort to educate their offspring.

Keeping a Promise

As faithful readers of this blog know, I was a very reluctant, and late, supporter of Donald Trump in 2016.  I grudgingly

  1. It was difficult but I decided to go with Luther as a source for an appropriate response to poor Keely

    Martin Luther: “You are a bungling magpie, croaking loudly!”

  2. Stupid dumb idiot liberal progressive Democrat. You cannot educate people like that. Rather, let them use contraceptive and go extinct from not reproducing.

  3. I think her ability to subtract was also compromised. That’s grade 2.

    I made my 9/yr old son watch. I made him explain what was wrong with her thinking. A. Immoral, B. Stupid. I pointed out that Truth in this case came in the form of math. Her opinion on justice being irrelevant to subtraction.

    But it will take a while to explain that she is a mortal threat who would kill him if she could. Not ready for that at 9.

  4. The horror of it all is that nearly half the country thinks like Keeley. I wonder if it ever occurred to the Social Justice advocates at the USCCB that they have a moral obligation to promote the study of basic economics. Because not doing so will eventually lead to rioting in the streets and much death and destruction.

  5. No one should kid themselves. The USCCB supports the Keeleys of the world. I recently had a similar conversation with a leftist member of the one percent. I told him that if he supported these kinds of tax plans nothing was stopping him from voluntarily paying a higher rate. His response was that there is no specific plan in place so the idea of paying more was ludicrous. He then changed the subject.

  6. Father of Seven. You got that right. Ironically, the USCCB is responsible for much death and destruction but, like good liberals, they would deny it till there dying breath. And now comes Pope Francis who will, by his words and actions, magnify the dissatisfaction and class hatred. And like Keeley he hasn’t the foggiest idea of what he is doing. We should expect more from our full of mercy Pope which only leads, in his hands, to the breakdown of religion and society.

  7. “…political science and sociology… ”

    She obviously wasn’t a difficult opponent for Neil with that sewerage as her choice in life.

  8. “I wonder if it ever occurred to the Social Justice advocates at the USCCB that they have a moral obligation to promote the study of basic economics. ”

    Hah! First, they’d have to obtain it themselves, since they are so enamored with failed socialist economics….

  9. The most difficult decision this young lady has had to face recently is whether to “Insert Card” or “Swipe Card”.

  10. Yes, I was aware of this video between Neil Cavuto and Keeley Mullen of the “Million Student March” organization. Mullen is an example of the perfectly programmed sock puppet of the puppetmasters. She has all the answers in place, even though a few simple facts advanced by Cavuto shake up her yet imperfect automaton responses:

    Cavuto: “How’s it going to be paid for?”
    Mullen: (silence for some seconds..then:) “Good question..”
    [Finally the “program” kicks in: ] “The 1% can pay for it..”
    Later:
    Cavuto: “How much must the 1% pay?…”
    Mullen: “I think enough until every family [is covered for tuition expenses, implied]…”

    Yet later again  :
    Cavuto: “What if the 1% leave the US?…”
    Mullen: “I think there will always be a 1% in the US, the US is a bastion of capitalism (rant beginning, but Cavuto interrupts her, at which point, addressing Cavuto directly:

    Mullen: “People in YOUR position will not want to pay but…” (Uh-oh, be careful, Neil, I think you are making the commissar angry: YOUR name is going on a list.)

    Then later again, after Cavuto brings up Greece and its bankruptcy for all the good socialist “stuff”, Mullen drops this precious pearl  :

    Cavuto: “Keeley, if you took ALL the money from the 1%, do you know it would only fund one entitlement program, Medicare, for about 3 years?”
    Mullen: “So you are going to have to find some other way to get the money…” (Earlier, she had say that the 1%, if they tried to hide the money as Cavuto averred, “would have to be held accountable.”*

    (*I wish Cavuto had pursued this avenue more from our little sock-puppet, because I think it would have shown her latently tyrannical bent. “Accountable” – socialist term for police force and the necessary police state.

    She is a perfect disciple of Trotsky: Now we just need the armored trains loaded with field pieces, machine guns and troops to roll into each town: because if there ARE no 1% to be found (as Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin were astonished to eventually find out), YOU and I will be the hoarding 1% and should be held “accountable,” Komrad Kulak. You are hiding “it” under your mattress.
    ……………
    If ever there was an argument for eliminating federal student loan aid entirely, this is it. Look what we got for it.

  11. PWP: in your first sentence you repeated yourself at least four times.
    .
    I saw it live on FoxBusiness. It was more than painful. She had nothing but liberal fantasies and lies: completely divorced from reality. Here we see how Obama twice got elected. She is the idiocracy personified. She oozed infallible ignorance.
    .
    Cavuto let her off easy. He could have had her a puddle of tears in 15 seconds.
    .
    If I were her parents, I’d sue for a refund of the tuition from her so-called university.
    .
    They need tor raise the voting age to 35.

  12. This video is making the rounds on Facebook, and I assume other social media as well. I think it more likely that she and her parents will sue Cavuto for publicly shaming her (as it were) than for them to sue the school for educational malpractice.
    .
    As for the voting age being raised to 35. Not good enough. I know several liberals over the age of 35.
    .
    People must be a 1) tax payer, preferably filing quarterly, 2) allowed to vote on only those things they have skin in the game for (can’t vote on property taxes-a local tax, I grant-if they don’t own property. Bonus: own your own business.
    .
    (Granted, I know a liberal who is a business owner, aged north of 35, and files quarterly, but at least he is voting for his own destruction and not just mine. )
    .

  13. I stopped listening when at a minute ‘n change when she didn’t know how she was going to pay for free tuition, cancellation of student debt and a $15 minimum wage.

    Seems there’s a lot of that waah waah, but I want it! going on at our institutes of higher day care these days.

  14. Seems there’s a lot of that waah waah, but I want it! going on at our institutes of higher day care these days.

    See one wag’s definition of ‘feminism’ as practiced by Sandra Fluke: “an open mouth saying “I want…””

    I couldn’t stand to listen to her for more than a few seconds. I doubt she even understands the distinction between ‘income’ and ‘wealth’ or why one has more of a skew distribution than the other.

  15. DJ Hesselius, they are all voting for their own destruction. Due to mal-education and societal resilience they just don’t see it.

  16. Tuition and fees at Northeastern are 42K a year. Judging from the above video her parents should demand back every penny they have paid to Northeastern in an obviously futile effort to educate their offspring.

    Around about 1986, Frances Fox-Piven and Barbara Ehrenreich wrote a letter to the editor of The New Republic complaining about an article by R.M. Kaus. In said letter they said everyone should receive a guaranteed income of at least 1/2 of personal income per capita. This frankly lunatic idea was offered by two women who have between them a doctoral degree in sociology and a doctoral degree in biochemistry.

    Education is specialized and there’s always much you don’t learn. It takes a special sort of stupidity to come up with an idea so lacking in sense as these two broads were hawking. There’s not much Northeastern can do about that short of compelling everyone to take economics courses. They called the 300-level microeconomic theory course one place I know of ‘the weed out course’. Economics is not for everyone.

  17. People must be a 1) tax payer, preferably filing quarterly, 2) allowed to vote on only those things they have skin in the game for (can’t vote on property taxes-a local tax, I grant-if they don’t own property. Bonus: own your own business.

    It’s hard to tell if you’re particularly serious, but you seem to have confused talking points with social reality and accounting with economics. Any working adult is paying Social Security taxes, anyone who rents an apartment is contributing to his landlord’s property tax payments, and anyone who purchases something other than groceries is paying sales taxes (IIRC, where you have inelastic supplies the bulk of the economic impact is on the consumer, which would be the renter in the case of real property).

  18. It’s not that lunatic an idea if your goal is to break the system.
    .
    Kind of like how Obama’s only an idiot if you think he thinks about the country more or less the same way you and I do.
    .
    Clearly, he doesn’t.

  19. It’s not that lunatic an idea if your goal is to break the system.

    None of them have a clue what the system is. Obama can at least hire Larry Summers to explain it to him. BO has never suggested anything as nutty as the Piven-Ehrenreich brainstorm and neither did George McGovern, who got flayed for a negative income tax proposal which conceived of replacing a mess of welfare programs with a tax credit the value of which was fixed at 24% of personal income per capita.

  20. Although McGovern’s plan was inspired by Milton Friedman’s earlier negative income tax proposal, Friedman nonetheless opposed McGovern’s plan because it did not in fact replace the entire mess of welfare programs (most importantly social security) but instead ladled on top an expensive additional one.

    That said I entirely agree with the point of your comment.

  21. Has everyone missed her comment about her family being hard-working, and receiving “numerous forms of public assistance”? Yet she
    attenda]ends a college that charges $42K a year!

  22. We are receiving no assistance here of any kind, and we just got word our oldest was accepted to a good school that is roughly the same price as the one this girl is attending. He is balking at the price tag, even though we received word he is due for a very generous scholarship.

  23. Has everyone missed her comment about her family being hard-working, and receiving “numerous forms of public assistance”? Yet she attenda]ends a college that charges $42K a year!

    Well, I know a school principal in Massachusetts who was on Food Stamps for a time… in 1986. If you own a house, people can find out a certain amount about your finances with the click of a mouse. Robert Stacy McCain has already doxxed her family. She attended a private school and her parents live in a home which has an assessed value in excess of $900,000, so this is all amusing in a way that’s brutal to a youth of that age. Teaching your children about the public world and about politics and religion is a peculiarly paternal task. Mr. Mullen either confounded her, crapped out or failed.

  24. Confounded.

    “Steve Mullen has posted numerous photos to his Facebook page showing his participation at Chicago’s Million Student March. In one post, Mullen notes that his daughter helped launch the Million Student March initiative: “This is a movement that my daughter Keely has initiated along with one of her fellow student colleagues. They are gaining traction in what promises to be the next national crisis. We need to demand a serious discussion of what we plan to do re: the cost of education in order to give these young people entering life a fair shot. Please spread the word!” In another post, Mullen responds to a friend who questions why his daughter attends such an expensive university: “She includes her personal situation only as one illustration. The larger point has to do with the corporatization of higher ed, the lack of a national commitment to help with education, and the ‘special projects’ that tuition money is going to fund. Much of their tuition goes into institutional spending that has nothing to do with teachers salaries or directly affects the learning that is going on.” Steve Mullen lectures on art and technology at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He lists in his biography a musical background and notes he co-wrote classic rocker Eddie Money’s hit song “Endless Nights.” He lists a bevy of Fortune 500 clients, including American Airlines, Walt Disney Co., Exxon-Mobil, Reebok and McDonald’s. “Mullen identifies as trans-feminine and “gender-mobile,” prefers “they/them” pronouns, and works to be an ear and an advocate for the wide diversity of student identities at SAIC,” his bio states. He didn’t immediately respond to a message left on his home answering machine.”

    With a dad like that it is no wonder that daughter is screwed up.

  25. DJ Hesselius: I do hope this “good school” produces in your son a better result than this idiot girl! Thirty-five years ago we sent our daughters to a very “good school”, and did not have the foresight, nor see the necessity for warning them that the professors would brainwash them, and that the girls would have absorbed the right way to live and think from our examples. WRONG! That “good school” turned our daughters into liberal, abortion supporting women.

  26. Donald McClarey & Steve Phoenix, your posts are both spot on, and after reading them, I find that I need a drink. But we should never give up.
