A New York Muslim student wrote on a university application #BlackLivesMatter over and over again and was accepted. Stanford University accepted his application on Friday. But all is not what it seems.
Ziad Ahmed has actually interned for Hillary Clinton. Could this have been the deciding factor in accepting his application. The question was asked “What matters to you, and why?” To respond with #BlackLivesMatter clearly only answers half of the question (the lesser half at that).
Are Elite Universities so in awe of a failed and despised politician that they are willing to take on undeserving students who fail to answer application questions just because they have had contact with a “liberal superstar”?
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Ahmed interned for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election and attended a White House dinner during the Obama administration, where he was acknowledged by the president for his activism.
Ahmed was also accepted into Yale University and Princeton University. He still hasn’t made a decision about which college he will attend in the fall.
“My unapologetic progressivism is a central part of my identity, and I wanted that to be represented adequately in my application,” Ahmed said about his Stanford application.
