Study: Democratic Commencement Speakers Outnumber Republicans 2:1
Are Republican speakers unwelcome at commencement ceremonies?
Condoleezza Rice was uninvited to speak at Rutgers, while 10 of 16 of Obama’s cabinet members are slated to give commencement speeches this spring.
Caleb Bonham, editor-in-chief of Campus Reform, was on “Fox and Friends” this morning, where he told Tucker Carlson about the unequal ratio between Republican and Democratic commencement speakers.
Campus Reform found that 57 Democrats will deliver commencement addresses, compared to 26 Republicans. Former Democratic Vice President Al Gore will speak at Princeton, and former President Bill Clinton will speak at New York University in Abu Dhabi, but not one former Republican president or vice president will speak at a graduation.
According to Campus Reform, 11 Democratic governors will speak, compared to six Republican governors.
“What I found to be surprising was when you break this down by category, the proportions are completely out of whack,” Bonham said. “Democrats hold 21 seats as governors in America, Republicans hold 29. You would think the proportion would be fair.”
Carlson said these colleges are run by the left and are “basically little indoctrination factories” that cost a lot of money.
