Solid, stable, mild-mannered Vice-President Mike Pence has been chosen to be the University of Notre Dame’s commencement speaker later this spring. This prompted a pair of the school’s seniors to launch a campaign protesting the selection. Immane Mondane told the Observer, Notre Dame’s student newspaper, “For me personally, [Pence] represents the larger Trump administration. For many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”
Mike Pence makes you feel unsafe? Unless you detest calm, sane Christians, that would be an impossibility. Someone “who openly is offensive,” and also “demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity?” Did I miss something somewhere along the line?
Mondane told the Observer she hopes the campaign encourages students to speak up for their rights. “It’s not even a matter of feeling like they have been silenced—they have been silenced on our campus and in our country.” WTF??!! It’s Pence you are trying to silence, to prevent from speaking at your campus, hypocritical doofuses. As is the case with almost all conservatives on almost all college campuses, you foolish frat-boys and sophomoric sorority sisters.
Kids on college campuses are taught to tolerate- indeed celebrate- any form of sexuality, any sexual orientation, any possible gender identity, any “version” of truth. They are simultaneously taught to be endlessly open-minded, “pro-choice” as regards abortion, and welcoming and inclusive to those Islamists who would convert, enslave or kill them, and who believe in stoning homosexuals and adulterers.
Yet these same individuals “feel unsafe” if anyone, especially a white Christian male, has the audacity to potentially express differing viewpoints.
It certainly makes me feel unsafe, and “feel” that the future of this country is “unsafe,” when I hear such wildly hypocritical, pathetic and insane assertions from someone such as Mondane.
