On Sunday, many Notre Dame students walked out of their own graduation as Vice President Mike Pence gave their commencement speech. One day later, two of the students who walked out appeared on CNN to say that they did so because they felt “unsafe.”
Luis Miranda and Aniela Tyksinski tried to defend their walkout by saying that a commencement address is not the proper place to have differing political views.
“The walkout was in response to the fact that members of our own community felt unwelcome, uncomfortable, and even unsafe,” Tyksinski claimed. “This was not the appropriate event for this kind of political discourse..this should have been an event for all graduates and all of their family members.”
Host Brooke Baldwin responded by challenging the students, asking if it is fair to say that college campuses are too liberal and don’t allow conservative viewpoints. Miranda replied by saying that he could not say if colleges are too liberal, but claimed to support free speech despite being unwilling to listen to Pence’s address.
“I cannot speak to the stereotype but…yes, there are difficulties over free speech,” he said. “It’s hard to have these conversations and we agree that free speech is a very important thing and that we shouldn’t be shutting it out.”
Baldwin then argued, “but you can understand how people are saying, well, how can you be welcoming if you’re not respecting — despite the fact that you totally disagree with his views — not welcoming the Vice President of the United States?”
The snowflakes didn’t know how to respond to that…
