“some liberal speakers are in such high demand that they are giving more than one commencement address”
It’s that time of year again and nothing has changed. Is anyone surprised?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Colleges banning conservative commencement speakers, 1 vs. 37 liberals
The nation’s top colleges and universities are continuing to crack down on the diversity of thought, essentially banning conservative commencement speakers this year.
In its annual survey, Young America’s Foundation said that of the 100 top schools that have identified their speaker, 37 are featuring notable and national liberals and one a conservative.
By comparison to other years, the group said that 2021 may be the worst-ever showing for conservatives.
YAF noted that some liberal speakers are in such high demand that they are giving more than one commencement address, according to the list shared with Secrets.
Included in that group are Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and activist Bryan Stevenson. Other liberal speakers include Oprah Winfrey, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and John Legend.
Meanwhile, top conservatives, such as former Vice President Mike Pence, have been shut out.
Thomas Jorden, a GOP donor and president of Cimarex Energy Co., is speaking at the Colorado School of Mines.
Wake Forest University is featuring a commencement panel with former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. Rice and Fauci are also on a panel at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. YAF does not include panels in its list of traditional commencement ceremonies.
