More Liberals Behaving Badly: This Time At A College Graduation

The sort of mentality displayed by the commenters at the Democratic Underground in the post directly below this one, was on display at Santa Monica College yesterday when they were lucky enough to have Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger come up and give the commencement address.

Unfortunately, as is becoming all too common, a bunch of liberals acting like howling yobbos did their best to ruin the event for everyone:

“Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to his alma mater turned into an exercise in perseverance when virtually his every word was accompanied by catcalls, howls and piercing whistles from the crowd.

Schwarzenegger’s face appeared to redden during his 15-minute commencement address Tuesday to 600 graduates at Santa Monica College, but he ignored the shouting as he recalled his days as a student and, later, his work as a bodybuilder and actor.

“Always go all out and overcome your fears,” he told the graduates. “Work, work, work. Study, study, study.”

Inside the stadium, the drone from hundreds of rowdy protesters threatened to drown out the governor’s voice at times. Many in the crowd erupted in boos when a police officer pulled down a banner criticizing the estimated $45 million cost of the Nov. 8 special election that Schwarzenegger proposed Monday.

The governor is backing three ballot initiatives that call for imposing a cap on state spending, stripping lawmakers of the power to draw their own districts and increasing the time it takes teachers to gain tenure.

At times during Schwarzenegger’s speech, cheers and boos mingled, and the graduates themselves appeared eager to hear the governor. Many applauded at one point when the noise from the bleachers briefly subsided.

“It didn’t matter. I just ignored them,” graduate Ray Lewis, 21, of Los Angeles, said when asked about the racket from protesters. Schwarzenegger’s “political views and all that had nothing to do with the graduation,” Lewis said.”

How ridiculous the American left is becoming. These liberals couldn’t even pretend to be civilized human beings for 15 minutes and let Schwarzenegger talk. No, instead they shouted, they screamed, they whistled, they did everything they could to shut Arnold up and spoil the event for everybody else.

But, that’s the sort of idiocy that is celebrated on the left today. Ya know, throwing pies at conservatives, trying to shout down people who disagree with you, insulting Republicans at grocery stores, talking publicly about how much you hate Republicans — in other words, acting like a complete cretin in public.

Liberals wonder why the American people don’t trust them to be in power? If you can’t even trust liberals to go to a college graduation without making fools of themselves, how can you trust them up on Capitol Hill?
