MOOCH IS AT IT AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT’S AT OBERLINE COLLEGE – GET A LOAD OF THIS BS:
Think about how, even with all the gridlock and polarization in Washington, we have made so much change these past six years. 12 million new jobs. Sixteen million people who finally have health insurance. Historic agreements to fight climate change. Epic increases in college financial aid. More progress on LGBT rights than any time in our history. And today, it is no longer remarkable to see two beautiful black girls walking their dogs on the South Lawn of the White House lawn. That’s just the way things are now.
Today, I want to urge you to actively seek out the most contentious, polarized, gridlocked places you can find. Because so often throughout our history, those have been the places where progress really happens, the places where minds are changed, lives transformed, where our great American story unfolds.
Graduates-climate change, economic inequality, human rights, criminal justice, these are the revolutions of your time. You have just as much responsibility-and just as much power-to wake up and play your part in our great American story. Because it is still possible to make a difference. 50 years ago, Dr. King urged the class of 1965 to “stand up” and be a “concerned generation”. Oberlin college graduates, rise above the noise and shape the revolutions of your time.
