Last month we wrote about snotty brats at George Mason University — a state-supported school — who’d rather stick their fingers in their ears than spend 10 minutes listening to someone who doesn’t share their radical agenda.
That was Gov. Glenn Youngkin who they found so objectionable, incidentally.
Depending on what news source you rely upon, either “about 30” or “many” graduates at Old Dominion’s commencement exercises this weekend were unaware that they, too, had attended a Virginia state institution. So they decided to turn their backs on the governor during his 10-minute commencement address.
Yes, I’m aware they have a First Amendment right to behave badly.
Just as I have a First Amendment right to call them rude brats.
In addition to the children acting out at graduation exercises, about 3,000 of them had earlier signed a petition demanding that the school rescind its invitation to the governor.
Memo to the triggered babies at ODU: your education was bankrolled by Virginia taxpayers. And a majority of those same people elected Glenn Youngkin precisely because he brought back common sense and parental rights to the commonwealth.
If you want to listen to a governor who supports biological boys competing in girls sports, someone who believes that very young school children need to see graphic novels showing gay oral sex IN SCHOOL, who thinks schools should allow children to change their names, pronouns and gender without their parents being notified, may I suggest you look into one of California, Washington or Oregon’s state universities?
Their governors may just be loony enough for you.
Think of how conservative grads must feel each spring as lefties fan out across the nation giving graduation speeches full of Marxist drivel.
Odd, you don’t read much about those students developing a case of the vapors or demanding that lefties be gagged or banned from campus.
Perhaps they’re the ones who really do believe in free speech.
