Kerry To Yale Grads: You Are Sterling’s Nightmare

From the Associated Press:

Kerry tells Yale grads to keep faith in government

By KIMBERLY WILSON | May 18, 2014

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry urged Yale University graduates on Sunday to keep faith in government’s ability to break gridlock, even as many problems remain unsolved.

We thought the left believed in the separation of church and state? But Kerry and his ilk want to turn government into a religion.

Kerry, a 1966 graduate of Yale, told students and their families, faculty and staff at the Ivy League school’s 313th commencement that some people don’t believe they can make a difference "and the sum difference of all of this is that we do not believe we can make a difference … we remain gridlocked."

Over the years, Congress has enacted broad legislation protecting the environment and civil rights, said Kerry, a former U.S. senator from Massachusetts. But, he said, the need to reform immigration and grapple with climate change now remain undone…

Kerry told graduates to remain hopeful and be active participants in finding ways to bring about change. "None of our problems are without solutions, but neither will they solve themselves," he said. "It’s a matter of willpower, not capacity. It requires keeping faith with the ability of institutions to do big things when demanded."

So what are some of the problems John Kerry has solved over the years? (Cue the cricket orchestra.)

Kerry also took a playful poke at the NBA’s controversy surrounding Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, telling the graduates, "You are … the most diverse class in Yale history. Or, as it’s called in the NBA, Donald Sterling’s worst nightmare." The comment drew laughs from the audience…

Sterling? The guy with the half black, half Hispanic girlfriend? The guy who pays blacks on his team millions of dollars? That Sterling?

And this from the same John Kerry who tried to claim that his wife, Teresa, is African-American because she was born in Africa.

Students from 61 countries graduated from Yale this weekend, according to a Class Day speaker…

Joe Biden said students were afraid to come to the US because of guns. But doesn’t this drive up the cost of education for Americans? And doesn’t it make it harder for Americans to get into Yale?

    How curious. Kerry has time to give graduation speeches, but no time to respond to Congressional subpoenas.

    Kerry said, “Your loans are not the only burden you graduate with today,” he said.

    Yet, John Kerry failed to add the 17 Trillion dollar debt & growing.
