Commencement 2017: Only 2 Of Top 100 US Universities Will Have A Republican Speaker

Spencer Irvine, Accuracy in Media

Liberals and Democrats have a stranglehold on commencement addresses, as is the norm. The only Republicans speaking to top 100 universities are Vice President Mike Pence at Notre Dame and an attorney general in Arizona:

Three Democratic U.S. senators will address graduates at the prestigious universities. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is the featured speaker at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Illinois’s Tammy Duckworth is slated to speak at George Washington University and Cory Booker of New Jersey will address the University of Pennsylvania’s graduates. No Republican senator is currently lined up at any of the top 100 universities.

Ernest Moniz, energy secretary in the Obama administration, will speak at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York. California Supreme Court Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, another former Obama administration official, will be Stanford’s commencement speaker.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
