Senator Sasse blamed “criminals in China” for coronaviruses in graduation speeches



Senator Sasse blamed "criminals in China" for coronaviruses in graduation speeches

GOP Senator Ben Sasse received sharp criticism from a high school board member for the comments he made during starting address during weekends.

The senator delivered an online address to students at his former high school, Fremont High School in Nebraska, where he blamed China for the coronavirus outbreak, joked about student fitness and shared his dislike of psychologists.

Unshaven Sasse, wearing a red tie and a loose white shirt, told students at their future reunion that they would talk about “that time when China started a major global pandemic that created the worst public health crisis in more than a century and brought the economy to kneel, and we have to stay home and everyone hoard toilet paper. “

Sasse continues, “Nobody knows exactly how we will defeat this, but you know, we are Americans, we are Nebraskan, we have grits and we will defeat this.”

The senator also said there would be “serious calculations with thugs in China who let this mess out of control by lying about it.”

He also told students, “Everyone named Jeremy is the worst,” without any explanation.

He also cited the Netflix documentary “Tiger King”, killed bees, and took a hard blow on the student body, “Back in the day when we were much fitter than you, we had to climb ropes all the way to the gym ceiling all the time.”

The senator took aim at psychologists too, saying “95 percent of all psychologists who were successfully employed … their work was really just to help people forget about high school,” added, “if you go to college, don’t – don’t – don’t – majors in psychology. That part is not a joke. “

A Fremont school board member, Michael Petersen, asked Sasse to apologize Facebook“You deserve better than a graduation statement from Senator Ben Sasse. Racism, implies that our graduates are fat and lazy, looking down on teachers and attacking the mental health profession is despicable.”

Sasse’s spokesman, James Wegmann, said Omaha World-Herald on Sunday the senator joked during the graduation speech and that “It is ridiculous that some people who are addicted to politics complain about Ben calling China in a joke.”

Wegmann then went on, “He said this for months, because it was true: The Chinese Communist Party’s coronavirus packaging was a waste of time that could contain the spread – the lies claimed innocent lives in China and throughout the world. Pretended graduates being too fragile to hear the truth is ridiculous. “

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
