"Never let a good crisis go to waste."
It's a favorite phrase of Marxists everywhere. Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was quite fond of it and effectively employed it toward pushing radical policies during the the Great Recession of 2007-2009.
So it's no surprise that Jill Biden, whose husband served as Obama's VP, has the same sort of outlook on crises.
DOCTOR Biden, who is a community college professor herself, spoke highly of community colleges on Tuesday, and used the pandemic to her advantage the way any good lefty would:
In this pandemic you've supported your students with urgency, creativity, and compassion. Your students and their families are carrying the brunt of the crisis. And that's why the Biden-Harris Administration is going to get this virus under control, and ensure support to those who are struggling. And as we rebuild our economy we need community colleges more than ever. This is personal to the president and me. We understand the power of your schools. We know that supporting students and your institutions is urgent.
Yes, here we are in yet another crisis where we must take urgent action!
Because you can never let a good crisis go to waste!
"We have to get this done. And we have to do it now," she said. "That's why we're going to make sure that everyone has access to free community college and training programs."
And make no mistake, these programs that are pushed through in crisis, are never temporary. This freebie is certain to be permanent.
Conservatives have been saying for a while now that all this talk about student debt forgiveness is just a progressive move toward 100% taxpayer-funded college.
And here we have another step in that direction.
Helping people to access education is great and all, but while promising to give everything away for "free" might be a good campaign strategy, it's a terrible way to rebuild an economy.
