He sounds woke. Woke on the right leaning side of the bed. Bed probably leans to the right because he looks fat.

Ho told Reuters, "I don't want to cancel Yale. I want Yale to stop cancelling people like me."

Dude the overwhelming majority of society is cancelling batshiat fundamentalists like you. You only have your position because a minority-elected president was handed a list of deplorables who were then shoved through McConnell's senate.  You're history. Toast. A dying breed.

Nobody with half a brain would clerk for you as a truly career-advancing move, so I'd guess you get zero applications for clerks from Yale in the first place.

And yeah, you do want to cancel Yale, you transparent piece of shiat.

I love the irony of Fundamentalists Christians trying to nail themselves up on their crosses and claiming that if the world had it's way they wouldn't exist.

Dude...you get to have your way, like you have for a few decades.

The only difference between now and then is that we're actually recognizing and calling it out when you're actively persecuting people who aren't like you.

But hey....I bet the quality of a clerk coming from Liberty U is JUST as good as the ones from Yale.....right?

Is this a repeat from 1951?

You know who ELSE tried to cancel Yale?

remember when republicans would decry activist judges? so afraid a left leaning judge would interpret the law with a bias. when all the while it was their main objective to control the courts.

During a March 2022 appearance at Yale, Waggoner was disrupted by pro-gay law students.

Makes sense to punish future law clerks, then.

Also, what is this like 12 people?   three?   how many damn clerks does this guy get?

I'm pretty sure that if this dude can be sued for anything, a Yale lawyer will find it and use it against him.

I cannot imagine that anyone would want to clerk for such a person!

What is cancel culture again?  Does it involve not hiring people for arbitrary reasons?

As far as I can tell for any Christian Fundamentalist there's this sort of goal above all others they strive for.

This kind of low-grade martyrdom I believe comes from their desire to be like their God who they view as sacrificed and as a result ascended into heaven.

You could go through life with what you believe and being quiet about it and doing your work and promoting your cause, but there's no redemption in that.

Making a big public statement and ultimately trashing everything and decrying that you're being denied every single right that you believe you're guaranteed?

That's where the Fundies sweet spot is.

It's whatever toxic people who were rejected for being assholes want it to be. Like most things our dysfunctional right-wing fools get on about, it's nonsense.

Yale? YALE?!?!?!?! JFC at least target UCLA and Princeton. but YALE?!?!?!

I love how he thinks he's going to be one of the boys once the White Christian Nationalist Inquisition comes to town. How the pack of racist jackals called the GOP finds hacks like him and Thomas to carry their water is beyond me. I'm a member of this wretched ethnic group and I can see it rising everywhere. They are loving the fact that they can use these dudes for their cover. Herschel Walker is the most cynical form of racism they've deployed thus far. They knew all too well what wasted brain pan he was before they even nominated him. He is a living insult too stupid to realize it.

Need way more public land grant uni law grads in the more prominent clerkships. The positions have been overstuffed with fancy lads for way too long.

There are hundreds of accredited law schools in the United States other than Yale. There is no reason that Yalies should be dominating either applications or hiring at any law firm or judicial office. That being said, this guy is quite likely a nutbar.

Even if wealthy, imagine putting in the work to get accepted by a school like Yale, then having this fascist announce that you and your classmates will not be considered for a position merely because the fascist dislikes Yale because reasons.

He just misses the old times, when Yale was restricted.
 
2022-09-30 5:49:30 PM  
So, this guy's disdain for Yale may stem from the course he teaches at U Texas Law school, his alma mater, with his co-teacher Ted Cruz, Harvard grad. Ted and another famous Harvard lawyer, Ron deSantis  set the tone for astute high class lawyering I'm sure.  Then there Alan Dershowitz.

I wouldn't know.  At one point, I had a Yale boss, another landlord from Yale, a best man from Yale -- and I spend Bonfire night glad they caught Guy Fawkes for his plan to do violence to the government.  It seems like a school that was literally off the grid for a time, valuing originality and suffering over simple electrification.

In Boston, they celebrate a conspiracy of business men, to disguise themselves as foreign people of color, to disrupt the supply chain when their sense of entitlement is shocked by a bigger oligarchy benefiting from a tax break they didn't get.  Whiney biatches.
 
2022-09-30 5:57:48 PM  
I agree. Yale law students one day become the Clarence Thomases of the world.
 
2022-09-30 6:37:55 PM  
Only because they can't just say "because fark you that's why."
