This is a Christian school, which just goes to show that progressives have poisoned pretty much every campus in the country.

Campus Reform reports:

Christian college faces backlash for inviting VP Pence to speak

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to speak at the Wisconsin Lutheran College Commencement on Saturday, but more than 200 students and alumni have denounced the decision.

In an open letter to the college, the group called the invitation for Pence to speak “disrespectful” and “problematic.”

The letter said, “the mere invitation of a Vice President of an incredibly divisive and controversial ticket to speak in a swing state months before an election is ignorant and deceptive.”

It also criticized the administration at the Wisconsin Lutheran College, a Christian college, for praising Pence’s advocacy “for the freedom of religious expression.”

“Throughout the years, WLC continues to invite people that consistently support conservative and Republican politics, those who often claim Christian values in their rhetoric, but don’t always display them in their policies,” the letter stated.

The letter also included a message to the class of 2020.

“Your commencement ceremony should not have been infected by toxic politics,” the letter read. “You didn’t ask for this, and you should not have needed to ask for this not to happen.”

This is one of the things that makes the left so hard to take seriously. Because they count politics above everything else, they scorn what in another time would have been an honor.

No institution, no office or title, no record of service, no habit of courtesy, respect or decorum, matters to them so much as their own petty hate.

(Yawn.) Of course. Nothing new here.

According to the left-wing collegiate groupthink, only a left-wing Democrat or Socialist or entertainer should be allowed to speak at any college. They live in fear of anyone bringing the truth to their campus, which would spoil their whiny narrative.

Colleges and universities should ignore this leftist trash talk. The left newspeak isn’t worthy of being anything other than that. Pence is a good fit for the school, and will give a good address. The commies certainly won’t.

The students do not control the university, the university is supposed to control the students.

I guess the snowflake students and faculty can skip the speech–if universities don’t start waking up and rejecting some of this nonsense, some of them will simply cease to exist–no one but an idiot wants to pay current college rates for socialist indoctrination–and online at that

I was forced to listen to Tammy Bladwin at my daughter’s graduation from Beloit.

It was very painful. However, I did survive.

And the update is that they cancelled the speech. If I were a paying customer (which would not have happened in any conceivable universe), my response would be “You cancelled the speech, I’m cancelling my tuition check”.

The common thread throughout these stories is the decent into mob rule on campus.
