Those decrying the actions of the students are failing to understand what the graduation ceremony represents. It is a celebration of the students' accomplishment. The speaker is there to add to the celebration, not detract from it. He, or she, is a guest of the institution but should be someone who is a pleasant addition. The graduation ceremony is not a learning experience. It is not to get another view of our culture or our politics. It is for fun. And being forced to listen to someone who represents the policies of the Trump administration is the opposite of celebratory for most young people and most college educated people.

You pick your best friend to toast you at your wedding, reminding you of past fun times and giving you encouragement for your bright future, not someone who bullied you in high school.
Nicely put. I do not believe that these kids should have to listen to some politician of the week talk abut some subject or another when these should me memories of a lifetime.

In today's political world the Democratic Party is dominated by fascist progressives whose only agenda is total federal/state government control

these fascist progressive are succeeding because they control the public unions and our educational institution from Kindergarten to post grad work. Just look at the public unions platform and look at the curriculum in schools, colleges and universities across the country.

You forgot to mention....all assisted, amplified and promoted by the main stream media.

Why do you think Trump is backpedaling now? He's TOLD what to do.

We did a horrible thing...we created a gender who collectively suffer from delusion...the delusion that they are equals to men. We created a race/races who suffer from the same delusion...the delusion that they are equal to white people. THAT is where we failed...everyone should NOT get a trophy...maybe next time they'll try just a little harder...and IMPROVE. That's what affirmative action and quotas did...it DESTROYED the motivation to improve. America has languished, it's gone from #1 to #25. We are literally devolving socially as we devolve into a 3rd world majority. White people keep/kept thing afloat...we are sinking because too many minorities are trying to climb aboard...when the number reaches a tipping point...the ship WILL founder...taking us all with it. Times WILL get very ugly. This time ISN'T different...it's how it ALWAYS ends.

You're "progressive"...meaning socialist, communist, we ALL share and share alike, everyone has equal worth...because you're a woman. MOST liberals are women and MOST "conservatives" are men. It's our brains...we DO have different wiring...we DO think VERY differently.
your wired differently all right, I won't say which body part does the thinking!!!!

What these students have shown is their smallness, pettiness and the benefit derived from open nd honest communication.

Mike Pence is n honorable man and he would have welcomed their comments and concerns. They lost that opportunity and because they lost that opportunit we all lost

Personal Best Regards:
I applaud those students for walking out on pence. He is NOT an honorable man at all. Small and petty? Hardly. THEY DID NOT INVITE HIM TO THEIR GRADUATION! Why should they be subjected to him? Do you really believe he wanted to hear what they had to say? Did he invite those students after the fact for dialogue?

Those students were making their voices heard by peacefully walking out on a man they have no respect for. Respect is something that is earned. pence has not earned the respect due the Office of Vice President. They were exercising their First Amendment rights. It is still America and we still have laws in place, despite what Comrade trump would like.

You definitely nailed our resident Racist Boy (Don Baldwin).



BTW - A quick way to identify these people is to hit the 'quote' button in any post, scroll way down...and the last 10 or so posts will have their user name next to their post.

You'll soon get to the point, where you could almost make the posts for some of these simpletons...before they even post.
