Famous Harvard Debate Team – Destroyed by THIS Group!

An Ivy League education just isn’t what it used to be.

CNN reports a group of New York inmates from a maximum security prison in Napanoch, New York, toppled Harvard’s prestigious debate team in a debate over illegal immigration.

Harvard’s team won the national title this year and the world championship in 2014.

But the inmates are building a reputation, too. The club has notched victories against teams from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Vermont.

Defending the idea that schools should be able to turn away students who are children of illegal immigrants, the Eastern New York Correctional Debate Team managed to score a victory in a friendly match against the Ivy League undergrads, according to the BBC.

The group of neutral judges apparently felt Harvard’s rebuttal to the prisoners’ anti-illegal immigrant argument wasn’t enough to save their dignity, giving the win to the team of prisoners who take in-prison classes taught by Bard College faculty.

Maybe the Republican Party should ask Bard College faculty for some helpful tips. Check out this video report here:

Harvard’s liberal education costs mega-bucks yet, the convicts were able to beat the elite. Tells us a lot about Barack Obama’s “scholar” rating at Harvard, doesn’t it?
