【视频】福克斯名嘴炮轰美国名校:官二代就这么多天才?

Tucker Carlson是福克斯新闻的王牌主持人,地位堪比Hannity,他的时政访谈节目在美国家喻户晓,收视率稳居前三。

Tucker多次公开抨击种族AA,认为大学录取明显歧视亚裔孩子,这在讲究政治正确的主流媒体上绝对是一股清流。

种族AA的问题以前写过无数篇文章,不再赘述,值得一提的是,推动AA的基本上都是民主党,他们认为黑人理所应当受到特殊照顾。

但是大学资源是有限的,既然要降低标准多招少数族裔,那么自然就需要别人腾出位置,而首当其冲的显然是亚裔。因为亚裔家庭重视教育,所以在大学里的比例高出人口比例,那么在民主党的眼里,亚裔就需要表现出高风亮节。也就是说,人口最少的亚裔,却被民主党踢出了少数族裔的行列。

共和党的态度截然相反:人人平等,凭本事上大学。没有人应该被歧视,也没有人应该被特殊照顾。

Tucker问了一个很朴素的问题,既然民主党整天呼吁要照顾少数族裔,他们自己有没有展现出高风亮节呢?

答案是,不但没有,而且民主党大佬们一个个把自己的孩子塞进了美国的顶尖名校。

那问题又来了,怎么这些官二代就这么优秀?

比如Al Gore,四个孩子全部进了哈佛。Tucker说这种概率相当于一个人不但被雷劈,而且每天一次,连续一年不断!

或许Tucker有点夸张,但是一家四个孩子全部进哈佛肯定不多见,Al Gore就这么教子有方吗?

视频里还有无数例子。

前两天轰动美国的名校招生欺诈案,富豪们收买考官,考试作弊,冒充体育特长生,也是为了孩子上个名校。而这些人大部分也是民主党,一边呼吁AA,一边通过犯罪手段把自己的孩子往名校里塞,结果被FBI抓了50多个。

Tucker说这其实属于低级犯罪,真正的高手是这些政客们,跟名校勾结在一起,权钱交易,把纳税人的钱几亿几亿地送出去,然后自己的孩子光明正大地被名校接收。别人还说不出什么来,因为招生都是保密的,谁也不知道Al Gore的孩子到底多优秀,才能四个孩子全部进哈佛。

很多人都知道常春藤联盟是私立大学,但实际上他们接受的纳税人资助比谁都不少。八所藤校,每年拿到的联邦资金,超过了美国的16个州。

无论大学还是政客,一碰到切身利益,满嘴的高大上立马抛在脑后。

Transcript:

If you’ve ever watched Chris Cuomo on CNN, you may have wondered: how did this guy get a TV show? Sure, he’s got well-defined abdominal muscles, and good for him. But he can barely speak English. There are nights when Cuomo emits entire paragraphs that mean nothing at all. Just pure gibberish, like pig Latin, or dogs barking. It’s remarkable. Was this guy educated in the United States? Let’s check Wikipedia. Wait it a second. The entry says that Chris Cuomo went to Yale University in Connecticut. That can’t be right. Yale has famously high admissions standards. Your kids couldn’t get in. No chance. They’d have to be incredibly smart — geniuses, really. Is Chris Cuomo a secret genius? Does he have some amazing talent that’s invisible on TV? Maybe he speaks flawless Urdu? Or has a deep grounding in particle physics? Or can calculate pi to the final digit? Actually, no. Chris Cuomo can’t do any of that.

It turns out that he has an even more impressive qualification: His father was the governor of New York. If you want to get into a top American college, it’s best to have a parent who’s a well-known Democratic politician. That’s the most effective credential of all.

Don’t take our word for it. Ask Dante DeBlasio, son of Bill DeBlasio, the incompetent mayor of New York. There’s no evidence the younger DeBlasio did remarkably well in high school. And yet, like Chris Cuomo, he somehow got into Yale

Once there, Dante DeBlasio found himself surrounded by people just like himself: the thoroughly average children of other prominent liberals. According to press reports, That would include the offspring of at least three Democrats currently-serving in the U.S. Senate: Michael Bennett, Amy Klobuchar, and Sheldon Whitehouse. All of them sent kids to Yale.

Their colleague Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, meanwhile, is one of a stunning number of Senate Democrats who’ve sent children Harvard. Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey is a Harvard parent. So is Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. Schumer sent both his kids to Harvard. Barack Obama sent one of his. So did former New York governor Eliot Spitzer.

The all-time record, though, must go to former Vice President Al Gore. Gore sent four. Imagine that: Four kids in a row to Harvard. What are the odds of that occurring in nature? Statistically, it’s about as likely as being hit by lightning every single day for a year. Yet somehow the Gore family pulled it off. Congratulations

Andrew Cuomo, the sitting governor of New York, sent one of his kids to Harvard, but the other two went to Brown. That’s also an Ivy League university that your kids could never get into. Brown is, as they say, “highly selective,” at least for the children of non-politicians.

But for pure, 200-proof exclusivity, nothing beats Stanford University outside San Francisco. You could live your entire life in this country and never meet a single person who went to Stanford. It’s that rarified. And yet here’s the amazing part: Hillary Clinton’s daughter breezed right in. How did Chelsea do that? Was it her formidable brainpower? Check out her Twitter feed, and judge for yourself.

Now, there’s a chance that Chelsea is intentionally misleading us. It’s possible that her entire public persona is performance art — a subversive, Borat-style parody of mindless lifestyle liberalism. If that’s the case, Chelsea Clinton is utterly brilliant. She’s the Jonathan Swift of our time. But it’s also possible that Chelsea isn’t joking at all.

It is possible, indeed even probable, that she is every bit as dull and self-serious as she seems. In that case, not only is Chelsea Clinton profoundly sub-brilliant, you’ve got to wonder how she holds a paying job. How did someone like that get into Stanford?

You might have the same question about some of the kids at Georgetown University, here in Washington. Georgetown’s alumni magazine is available online, so the next time you’ve got a minute, take a look. You’ll recognize many of the names: Biden, Pelosi, Kennedy. These are the children of famous Democratic politicians. Are they impressive, hardworking kids who deserve to be at one of America’s most prestigious universities? Possibly. Maybe some of them. Maybe not.

That’s irrelevant. They’re the offspring of prominent Democrats. That’s why they’re at Georgetown. How does this happen? It happens because our meritocracy is a sham. It’s fake. They tell you that only the most accomplished students get into these schools. They’re lying. Their friends’ kids get first dibs. Fellow members of their social circle. Kids whose families can help them down the road. The children of sympathetic politicians are an obvious priority for admissions officers. These are the same politicians who funnel many billions in tax dollars to colleges and universities every year. So, letting a senator’s kid into Harvard is just smart business. The quid quo pro is obvious. It’s a form of unregulated lobbying. Remember the varsity blues scandal in California, where a group of socially-anxious soccer moms tried to game college admissions? Well, this is far more corrupt, except nobody’s going to prison for it.

So how many Chris Cuomos get into Yale every year? It would be nice to know, but we don’t really know. Like almost everything about higher education, it’s opaque. Prestigious schools can pretend they admit only the most qualified applicants because nobody can prove otherwise. The real admissions numbers are secret. They’re hidden from public view.

Elite colleges are like public companies that lie about their balance sheets. They’re cooking the books to defraud shareholders. In this case, the shareholders are the entire country. A handful of schools form the gateway to success in America. If you go to Harvard, you are all but guaranteed to make more over the course of your life than someone who didn’t. It’s that simple. When you rig the admissions system, you’re rigging American society. You’re creating an impenetrable class system for your own benefit. And that’s exactly what they’re doing.

You often hear progressives say they worry about income inequality. They don’t mean it, at all. How do you know? Because if the left really cared about the stratification of American society, they’d make college admissions transparent. They’d force Stanford to open the books and show the rest of us how they’re assembling this year’s freshman class. That’s what they’d do. And yet Democrats in Congress haven’t done this. They seem strangely incurious about the process. It’s like they don’t really want to know how it all works. In fact, they already know precisely how the admissions game works, and they strongly approve. Why wouldn’t they? Their kids are befitting from it.
