HOT MIC: Janet Napolitano Doesn’t Like Dirty Hippies Either

avatar

University of California president and former Obama cabinet member Janet Napolitano made an embarrassing gaffe Wednesday when she was caught on a hot mic referring to student protesters as “crap.”

During a meeting of the UC board of regents, about 30 student burst in to protest a plan to hike tuition by 25 percent over the next 5 years. Some of the students stripped down to their underwear to show they were giving “the shirts off their backs” to pay for school, and they also threw fake money in the air.

Napolitano, who served as President Barack Obama’s secretary of homeland security, was not pleased by the disruption.

“Let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap,” she told UC regent chairman Bruce Varner before walking out of the room. The comment wasn’t heard by the protesters, but it was caught on the video stream that was recording the meeting.

WATCH:

Shortly after her comment, Napolitano and the other regents left the room, and then returned after the protest dispersed.

The student protesters were decidedly unimpressed with Napolitano after learning about her comment. “I don’t know where she’s coming from, but I’m assuming she’s never had to deal with these issues personally. So I can understand why there would be a disconnect there,” protester Kristian Kim told CBS San Francisco.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
