It is not surprising or unexpected.
Getting kids to do this is really not that tough.

You could probably get a signature or two right here at the Café.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

They should practice what they preach and not say anything and just fade away into obscurity. How retarded can these kids be? Well, apparently quite a bit.

Yalies, huh? The best and the brightest our country has to offer? What a freakin' disgrace.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I remember an experiment like this that went in the other direction. They typed up the Declaration of Independence, unchanged and asked people to sign it as a petition. No one would.
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Maybe the Yale kids did sign a petition calling for the repeal of the first amendment. I don't know. I did not see the petition. Did any of you?

From the first video, it is not really clear what they were signing. There was NO clip of anyone being told they were signing a petition to repeal the first amendment and then that person signing. There were lots of cuts between one person being told one thing, and then another person signing. The video certainly gives the IMPRESSION people were signing to do away with the first amendment, but that may not be the fact.

In the second video, the petition was clearly misrepresented to at least one signer. Instead of saying the petition was to repeal the first amendment of the constitution, the signer was told it was against the first amendment of the Tea Party.

Not really an excuse for Yale Students is it?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

Treason!
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Did anyone notice that in the OP the filmmaker is described as a "satirist"?

Perhaps the judgments are a little hasty...
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Mao Tse-tung, he was an old Yale boy. Not sure if he was Skull and Bones.

Good satire should challenge us. To judge ourselves, I mean.
