I have my view due to how i prioritize things in my life. In any given day my goal is to complete my days tasks as quickly as I can and then go home
to be with my family. Even as a teen/early 20's kid, my goal was to complete whatever it was i was doing to get things done then spend time with
people who mattered to me.
I view 90% of protests as displays of histrionic behavior. And when it comes to kids, whether educated or not, I see 90% of their actions as being
driven by groupthink and pop culture memes.
Like i said: they are free to protest. That is a right reserved for The People. I suspect that, like most of us, it'll only take a year or two of
the real world before they realize its a wasted effort. And despite all this, i have zero hope that enough of them will realize that the only way to
REALLY protest is with their votes (and that they will continue to vote a party line they are told to vote by pop culture) to ever make any real
difference for anything meaningful.
ETA: i don't doubt that they could protest Pence's past. But I DO 100% doubt that any of them would have a clue of what his history represents
without media memes making it so. And I find it absolutely hilarious that the same folks who would walk out of a Pence commencement are the same who
would rather see him in the Oval Office than Trump. I felt the same about Clinton/Gore when i was a college freshman.
