FOX News reports:

Taylor University student starts ‘I Like Mike’ campaign in support of Pence

After an unexpected public backlash when Vice President Pence was tapped as commencement speaker, a Taylor University student started an “I Like Mike” campaign to show the overwhelming majority at the small Christian college in rural Indiana support the state’s former governor.

David Muselman, 20, a freshman finance major from Berne, told Fox News he started the campaign because he couldn’t believe the backlash after the university announced Pence would be speaking at its May 18 commencement.

Some upset students and alumni launched a petition to have Pence’s invitation rescinded, saying they felt “personally attacked” and were “physically shaking.” Critics said students would “feel unsafe at their own graduation.”

The backlash received national headlines.

“My whole motive behind selling these ‘I Like Mike’ T-shirts was to tell the world that a huge majority of campus was thrilled at Taylor’s decision,” Muselman said. “The silent majority is in full-fledged support, while a very, very small minority is not supportive.”

Paul Lowell Haines, the president of Taylor, praised the vice president as a “good friend to the university over many years,” and “a Christian brother whose life and values have exemplified what we strive to instill in our graduates.”

I’m old enough to remember the “I Like Ike” chants in the fifties. Sigh…
