The left will protest for anything. It’s just in their nature to do so. So with Mike Pence scheduled to give a commencement speech at Notre Dame on May 21st you can expect there to be a left uprising. Student groups like the Diversity Council and the College Democrats have come together to protest.
Some students are saying that they feel “unsafe” with Pence on their campus. Two students Immane Mondane and Jourdyhn Williams are taking the protest to a whole new level with a #NotMyCommencementSpeaker campaign.
In the campaign, students will be going all throughout the campus highlighting everything that Pence has said that were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, offensive, or ostracizing”.
“For me personally, [Pence] represents the larger Trump administration,” Mondane explained to university’s newspaper. “His administration represents something, and for many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”
The other campaign leader, Jourdyhn Williams believes that inviting Pence to make a speech on the campus is a direct violation of the school’s Catholic beliefs.
“I feel that is offensive to such a large population here at Notre Dame, and I also believe it goes against certain Catholic Social Teaching, which is something the University likes to broadcast that it stands behind, but it picks and chooses when it wants to stand behind them,” Williams said.
