Students sign petition to cancel Memorial Day over ‘American imperialism’

Addison Smith, Campus Reform

With Memorial Day approaching, and Anti-American sentiment growing on campuses throughout the country, Campus Reform’s Video Reporter Addison Smith went to Georgetown University to see if students would sign a fake petition to “unrecognize Memorial Day as a federal holiday” because it “celebrates American Imperialism.”

The petition garnered 50 signatures, as an abundance of students signed on with enthusiasm. One man condemned Memorial Day as a celebration of American Imperialism before even having seen the petition.

“I don’t think Memorial Day should be a thing that we celebrate… I feel like it’s a celebration of U.S. imperialism and colonialism,” he said.

He confessed that he didn’t begin to hate America, “Until he got to college.”

‘I didn’t really think in this way until I got to college, and like, I took women’s and gender studies classes, and that put me on this path where I’m like, “Yea, like, f-ck the U.S.’”

When Smith asked him if he would support a total abolition of the United States military, he quickly responded, “Yes please”.
