These people should all be tased.
Then kicked hard in the ass.
Then tased again for good measure.
Student Benefits my ass.
Just regular commie Flakes.
Bring in a BBQ food truck and just cook and let the smells waft over the hunger strikers. Then, don’t sell, or give, them anything!
Their parents certainly wasted a lot of money getting those idiots “educated”. And there you have the end product put out by most of the “institutes of higher learning”, their called idiots.
Why don’t they go fix New Haven instead?
AT least these kids are not black shirted terrorists.

I’ve been on a hunger strike my whole life and didn’t even know it!
It sounds more like a Jane Fonda Diet Plan.
“Future leadership of the Democrat Party”
Yes indeed, more proof that Democrat Socialist Snowflakes are educated far beyond their intelligence.
It is discouraging.
I was looking for a place to have a BIG tailgate Bar B Que...I think I found it!!!
They should get participation trophies.
A student’s union?
Offer free food for the “sell-outs”. THAT would be fun to watch!
But this... this actually made me laugh out loud. This is prize-winning stupidity.
“It takes a village” mentality.
Symbolic???? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!! What a bunch of childish pu$$ies!! It’s time to grow up, junior.
It’s actually a starvation strike.
