If you thought that commencement speeches were about the future and how students can find happiness and success in life, well, you must be some freak conservative because liberals don’t agree with that!
To them, commencement speeches are about bashing conservatives and promoting their
messed up ideal world agendas.
Take comedian Kumail Nanjiani for example. He was delivering the commencement address at his alma mater Grinnell College when he left students with this piece of “advice”.
The actor, who stars in HBO’s hit show Silicon Valley, told students to “have sex with an immigrant”.
“So here’s another concrete piece of advice I can give you – have sex with an immigrant. We’re going through a tough time right now and it would just be really great for morale.”
Nanjiani, 39, moved to the U.S. from Pakistan when he was 18, and graduated from Grinnell in 2001 with a liberal arts degree.
We are sure he meant this as a joke, as the crowd laughed afterwards.
At least, we seriously hope it was a joke. Check out the rest of his speech. And you can be the judge.
“When I came to Grinnell I was a devout Muslim who had never romantically touched a girl and I was going to get a degree that guaranteed me a job.
“By the time I graduated I was basically a Rastafarian with a white American girlfriend and a philosophy degree. College changes you, is my point.
“This little liberal arts college in the middle of Iowa changed the way I saw the entire world. Before America was my home, Iowa was my home.
“And before Iowa was my home, Grinnell was my home.
“Immigration is a big topic of conversation right now—do we take in refugees or not, these people are so different from us… And I will say this.
“Refugees are people who risked everything and left their homes in search of better lives for them and their families. What could be more American than that?
“To those of you who were able to be here, as nervous as you were to get through customs and immigration, I hope that you are just as proud to watch your children walk across this stage. And I hope that today, you see the America that we love.
“Each other is all we have. This is all we got, this is all we have.
“And it may not be heaven, but it can be Iowa. Congratulations, class of 2017.
“Welcome to the real world. We need you out here.”
