Swansea’s announcement that the university is giving Hillary Clinton honorary degree has not gone down that well

Swansea University has announced that the Democrat’s 2016 Presidential candidate will be given an honorary doctorate at the Welsh University on Saturday 14 October. And the decision does not seem to have gone down that well with its students.

“We are proud to announce that we are awarding Hillary Rodham Clinton with an Honorary Doctorate at the Bay Campus on Saturday 14 October.

The award is in recognition of her commitment to promoting the rights of families and children around the world, a commitment that is shared by Swansea University’s Observatory on the Human Rights of Children and Young People,” the University announced today.

But responses on social media were not all congratulatory.

    At first I thought this was some sort of a gigantic joke? Then I realized it was real, which made me very sad. It is a sad state of affairs when a so-called, educational establishment is prepared to fake the establishment narrative for some sort of advantage. Still, this institution’s record of integrity and ethical and educational standards seems to fit perfectly with the narrative vomited up by the Clintons at every opportunity, so I suppose we should not be surprised?
