Princeton professor talks much, says little during Morning Joe segment

Good afternoon, Gramps here,


When I was in college, many, many years ago, university professors I had likely had the same political leanings as the ones of today, but it wasn’t nearly as overt or in your face.

In addition, although there were disagreements on some issues, which is healthy, I always found their arguments compelling and lucid.

That brings me to a segment of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, a liberal bastion despite what some may claim, and I found this segment on conservative Ben Shapiro and free speech on college campuses. This is when I was exposed to chair of the Center for African-American Studies and the William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African-American Studies at Princeton University, Eddie Glaude, PhD.

All I can say is WOW! I never seen anyone make a more convoluted argument concerning a conservative speaking on campus. There is much too much for me to transcribe, so I link to the video so you can check it out for yourself.

Professor Glaude made so little sense that even the favorable panelists on the show were looking at him with a dumbfounded stare and questioned what he was saying–“What’s your point?”

Toward the end of this incredibly confusing discussion, even Dr Glaude said, “This is the point I’m trying to make and I’m not making it very articulately”–you think?

I’m an educated man, but that was a 15 minute cacophony of drivel that left my brain hurting like no other puzzle or brain teaser ever.
