10. Princeton peabrains (chickpea brains)
What is it with these pro-Palestinian groups? Don’t they want us to be healthy? After all, nutritionists say hummus is a great high protein snack, made as it is with chickpeas. I’ll bet Michelle Obama LOVES hummus (or, loves for US to eat it). But the Israel-haters hate Sabra hummus, because it’s partially owned by an Israeli company. So when they’re not protesting Sabra by terrorizing innocent grocery store patrons… they’re kicking up a stink about it on college campuses.
The Princeton Committee on Palestine kicked up such a big stink that the college held a referendum election on whether an alternative brand of hummus should be offered to students (hey Princeton parents, aren’t you glad that pricey tuition is being used wisely?). So for three days, students went to the polls to cast a vote on this internationally pivotal issue… and in a rare display of common sense, the students actually defeated the ridiculous referendum. However, in an un-rare display of kowtowing to asinine Left-leaning demands, the university says it’s willing to continue working with student activists on this matter.
If the referendum had passed, a delightfully snarky editorial in the New York Daily News was already standing by with suggestions for how the students could “truly honor their convictions” if they wanted to wash their hands of all things Israeli:
“Trade that computer for an abacus; Intel, the ubiquitous chipmaker, does business in Israel. Stop wearing Hanes underwear and J. Crew shirts. Stop watching CNN. Stop sneezing into Kleenex. Stop eating anything cooked on a GE range or chilled in a GE refrigerator. The kids should also stop paying taxes or, for that matter, living in America. Because tax dollars support the Israeli military.”
Yeah, Princeton Palestinians – how about putting your money where your big fat mouths are?
