Students Sign Fake Petition To CANCEL MEMORIAL DAY Over ‘American Imperialism’

“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, fuck the U.S.’”

“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.”

Students in Washington DC eagerly signed a fake petition to ‘cancel Memorial Day’, agreeing that the holiday “celebrates American Imperialism.”  

Campus Reform reporter Addison Smith conducted the experiment to get an idea of how many students would happily forget about the day of remembrance for fallen US heroes.

Smith managed to get 50 signatures in a short time, with some condemning the holiday before even reading the petition.
