Students at Savannah College of Arts and Design started a petition to remove Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ name from a campus building but many students couldn’t give a single answer as to why they wanted it removed.
One student went so far as to compare Thomas to Hitler, though when asked if he could name anything Thomas had done to justify his comparison, the student admitted, “I mean not in particular.”
Citing their belief that Thomas is “anti-woman” and doesn’t represent the values of the college, the petition garnered over 2,000 signatures from angry students and members of the community.
But do the people who support removing Thomas’ name understand why they’re so opposed to him?
Campus Reform‘s Cabot Phillips headed to Savannah to find out.
Most students Phillips spoke with were clear in wanting the building name changed. They were not so clear in what it was they were so upset about.
One student, after saying she would sign the petition, admitted, “I don’t know I haven’t done much research on this. I just saw the petition and that’s the extent of it.” Another student in support of the petition echoed a similar sentiment, saying, “well I don’t actually know what he did,” while yet another added, “I really don’t know anything about him.” More

Unfortunately, most young people are just as clueless as the ones in this video and they get to vote. It just shows that most millennials don’t watch the news, or read it. They just go along with the liberal agendas of their professors and just believe whatever they are told!
Somebody told them that he was mean to someone once.

Love these videos. They show how vacuous stupidity doesn’t affect having strong opinions. Also applies to much of the rest of the population as well.
