Its truly sad to see the fine area colleges and Universities have broken away from having commencement speakers that represent all areas of the cultural issues of past, present and future to that of those who are far Left and biased in their opinion of the people who make this country go. These people who are listed in this article are all Left wing wackos who hate this country and the people who the backbone of the US. These Leftist's mentioned here all hold the view and think that America is the evil force in the world to the US is responsible for stealing the wealth and natural resources of inferior countries who cannot compete against our military so through this distorted and cock-eyed view of the American Left towards this country and this nonsense they fill the heads of these young people is really shameful. Everyone of the mentioned guest speakers view the true American working and retired people who hold the traditional views of American values are at fault for what is wrong with the country and we are the cause of the world's problems. The President has even repeated this mantra many times where most recently he hammered it again at the Ohio State University commencement this past Sunday. If you dare to disagree with the American Left you are viewed as a racist, bigot, sexist and a homophobe. Just look at the issue of same sex marriage and how the Left has bastardized the word of marriage and the traditional nature of this contractual agreement that was meant to be between a man and a woman. So they need to redefine its nature so that it is fair and equal instead of being right and just. All of these commencement speakers will say that the young graduates can still make it in America so as long as they hold the hypocritical views of the Left. Then you are a cool cat just like the President and your a force for good.
