    College Admission Interview: Why Are You Following Alex Jones On Twitter

    “We are not talking about applicants who are retweeting alleged hate speech, alleged ‘Fake News,’ or alleged hoaxes,” Shear wrote. “We are talking about just following a Twitter feed of someone whose views are frowned upon by members of an admissions committee.”

    Shear’s 17-year-old client had never “liked” or retweeted any content from Jones or his website InfoWars, but just following Jones was enough for him to be questioned. When Shear looked into the digital history of the college admissions interviewer who asked the teenager about Jones, he discovered she was fan of Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialst-VT).

    Shear contacted the interviewer and stressed that such discrimination was unacceptable. “The college didn’t want any negative publicity about this matter so it quickly resolved the situation to my client’s satisfaction,” Shear wrote.

    “Many college admissions offices such as Harvard are encouraging anyone who has ‘digital dirt’ on an applicant or accepted student to send it to the admissions department so they can reject an applicant or revoke an offer,” Shear wrote. “This happens regularly and finally made international headlines last year when Harvard revoked offers to at least 10 applicants based up their digital footprint. What is more troubling is that Harvard has lobbied for years against a social media privacy law for applicants that would ban colleges in Massachusetts from being able to request applicants verify their digital accounts and activities which may indicate their political or personal opinions.”

    WARNING: Colleges May Reject You Based On Whom You Follow On Social Media
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    “Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.”

    This world is getting crazy. Colleges are not liberal enough they are checking on Social Media so they can ban Conservatives from even entering.

    How long must we put up with this ?
    American Youth is being brain washed by social engineers.
    People who think themselves smarter than their fellow man.
