Young Democratic Socialists at Boston University Demand Free Laundry Services

Young Democratic Socialists at Boston University Demand Free Laundry Services

“Free laundry for all!”

Is there anything that the left doesn’t think should be free? Is there anything they won’t demand?

Campus Reform reports:

Democratic Socialists at AOC’s alma mater are still protesting for free laundry

Members of Boston University’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter are doubling down on calls for free laundry services.

Campus Reform previously reported that the students began organizing for free laundry services in November. Insisting that “there is plenty of money in the budget for the university to take this burden off of its student body,” the students argued that the university ought to cover the cost of all laundry services in the interest of aiding “less affluent” students.

The group’s survey found that less than half of students paid more than $10 per month for laundry services.

At the time, a university spokesman declined to comment, since the group had not submitted a formal request for the university to consider. However, as The Daily Free Press — Boston University’s student newspaper — reports, Boston University spokesman Colin Riley told the Young Democratic Socialists that the school would “keep the request in mind as we move ahead in the future.”

He added that the students managed to meet with administrators, who said that students with financial need should seek aid from the school’s Financial Assistance Office or Dean of Students.

Nevertheless, the Young Democratic Socialists hosted a protest on March 26. Students held hand-drawn signs with slogans “Free laundry for all!” and “Free Laundry: Let’s talk about it!”

These snowflakes can’t come up with $10 or $20 a month to do their laundry? My wife questions whether they actually wash their clothes and I wonder how many $10 designer coffees they get from Star**cks every month. I’m sure it costs a bundle to attend that school, even if they’re on a partial scholarship. Give up some of your “privilege” and wash your own skivies.

    Designer coffees, the latest mobile phone (some are topping out at $1400 now), and keeping the BMW running.

    Clearly, some of them live too far away from Mommy to get the services they need.

    Everything for free. Just what good little apparatchiks demand.

    Let’em do what every poor family use to do, Wash your clothes in the sink/ tub and hang a clothes line inside. Otherwise, call Mom to do your laundry…………but I don’t think she’ll take your collect call!

This should show that socialists have no problem with slavery.

No. Life costs money. Deal with it.

Free laundry? How about we just not talk about it..

You have money you don’t “need,” so I want it.

Children — here’s a hint from a campaigner who’s been around the городской квартал: treat anyone without the robust odor of a true comrade as a counter-revolutionary.

Free laundry. I agree, wholeheartedly!
with fresh poison ivy leaves in the final rinse

Why? Most look like they have no clue about personal hygiene.

Isn’t laundry white privilege?

    Only white underwear, shirts and sheets

    Always separate the whites and the coloreds, and for heaven’s sake don’t put the reds in with anything else.

    Used to be that wasn’t double-entendre life advice. Now, getting less and less sure.
