Students Walk Out On Pence’s Commencement Address On Free Speech [VIDEO]

While giving the commencement speech at Notre Dame, Vice President Mike Pence saw a number of students walk out. Of course, they’re among the “tolerant” and “open-minded” crowd, so you would think they’d be open to hearing points of view with which they may not agree. Apparently this is not so.

Of the 3100 students in the audience, only about 100 walked out. The rest cheered Pence’s remarks, which bashed the political correctness of college campuses today, as well as the role Notre Dame played in keeping free speech alive on campus.

“But Notre Dame is an exception,” Pence stated. “An island in a sea of conformity so far spared from the noxious wave that seems to be rushing over much of academia. While this institution has maintained an atmosphere of civility and open debate, far too many campuses across America have become characterized by speech codes, safe zones, tone policing, administration-sanctioned political correctness, all of which amounts to nothing less than suppression of the freedom of speech.”

Watch the video below:

We have all seen instances of colleges allowing bigoted students to shut down free speech and forcing them to cancel speakers whose only crime is having a different opinion than that of the students. Ann Coulter and Milo have seen first-hand exactly how vicious and violent people can become when they disagree with you.

There is no room for that kind of hatred on any college campus around America, yet they insist on dominating the conversation and if they can’t, they cry and demand safe spaces where they can be surrounded by like-minded people who will do nothing but assure them that they’re right.

Ironically, these are exactly the kind of people Pence was referring to when he was talking about closed minds who can’t tolerate any speech other than their own.
