Full Title: The slightly disturbing ‘joke’ made by Valerie Jarrett on online privacy in a college commencement speech

During her commencement speech at Pomona College, a leading liberal arts institution located in Claremont, California, President Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett made remarks about the president’s focus on the so-called “pay gap” between men and women (repeating the dubious claim that women make 77% of what men make), Obamacare and other administration agenda items.

But it was when Jarrett deviated to talking more generally about political service that she let loose a joke that some might find a bit unsettling (though the audience seemed to think nothing of it). (VIDEO)

Idiot jerks smiling and laughing in the background! Grown white men too! There is no acceptable excuse for this kind of behavior. Hang ‘em every one.

She followed it up with how it was funnier than she intended it to be.

Yup, “The Lizard” always tries to strike fear, instead of telling jokes.

Valerie, there are many of us who don’t care what you find out about us.

You are not the arbiter of right and wrong. The Lord Jesus Christ is.

He sees everything.

There is zero subtlety in these people. They are in-your-face fascists.

Ghoulish and shameful Freudian slip... How stupid ARE these people?

Well, they are in charge and they are putting us through a meat grinder. So, I have to say, they are venal, they may be dumb, but they are apparently smarter than the half of the country that votes for them.

In the last days .... two spirits will be released upon the earth .. FEAR ... and ENVY.

I think those spirits are already here .. implemented by the current admin.

This admin is trying to foment a RACE WAR (just like they did the “Arab Spring”). I sure hope we’re not stupid enough to fall for that kind of bigotry.

“...smarter than the half of the country that votes for them”

Right.

But then, SOME people are VERY easily led! (Conned, more like.)

Heck, even a toddler would trade you his grandfather’s gold watch for a candy bar.

What do you mean by "released"? Those two have always been here on planet Earth, haven't they?

(Also, referring to another thread: Have you learned any more about that phone solicitation you received last week?)

Basically .. yes .. but now it will be amped up .. so to speak.

And .. if people just look around .. it’s really amped up from “always been here”.

You don’t have to agree .. I won’t be offended.

Funny how she’s not so open to We the People finding out everything about her and the usurper.
