Considering you just admitted you have never attended a commencement, how exactly do you know that?

Read my response to Deaf Alien above.

they were in fact on their own time.

No, sir, they were certainly not! They were in attendance at a University event. Attendance is not required, but adherence to policy is required for those who attend.

No one gets to just walk in off the street and sit down. The public is welcome, but may be turned away at the discretion of school officials. They are seated by school officers. Students are not guaranteed the right to attend; they can be denied for any number of reasons.

If you want to go to a football game, you can drink a beer, yell, and leave when you get ready. Commencement is not a football game.

My friend you just can't talk to these people. It is obvious they were not raised in the "Southern Way" where class and decorum mean something like we were.

This is not about manners. This is about their right to free speech. Who are you to impose your morality on those students?


It is about manners, class, decorum, and good home training. It's obvious you have none of them.

Oh so you're a psychic? You know that I will do the same thing?
Maybe you should work at psychic network.

At least I read the school policy.

You, sir, have absolutely zero idea what you are talking about.

Did the speech continue without problem?
Did the people listen without problem?

Yes, to his credit, Pence did not add to the disruptions.


Did the people listen without problem?

Probably not in the student section. And the actual honors were disrupted as well.

Thank you for admitting that it is not that big of a disruption as you made it out to be.
As I have stated it's merely a burp. A blip on the radar.
The media is making a big deal out of this of course because of Trump and Pence.
Now the REAL disruption would be the Antifa at Berkeley.

Can you admit that these children were being disrespectful?

I would think (hope?) that even Yankees understood decorum to some degree... but I'm starting to realize how futile that hope really is.

(I don't think they understand the phrase "bless yore heart" either.)

If they were being disrespectful or not is not the point. I personally wouldn't do the same.

I admitted nothing of the sort.

And Berkeley is a disruption now just by existing. It has no claim left to academia IMO.

An hypothetical: would it be "disrespectful" if MLK walked out on George Wallace's speech?

What does disrespectful mean?

Are americans obliged to be respectful to everyone at all times?

Are the posts criticizing the action of these americans disrespectful?

I thought it was implied? Well I guess I'll be more clear since you can't read too well. I think it might be a little disrespectful but that's me. It's in the eye of the beholder. But I support their right to free speech and protest so it's not so disrespectful as you made it to be. After all civil rights is very, very important and we should fight for it constantly. Apparently some people here do not care about civil rights.

No, respect is earned but the problem is these kids don't respect themselves or those that came to celebrate their achievements.

I don't know if you are late to this discussion but the point is:
Do they have the right to free speech? People here don't seem to think so. Some even go as far to suggest punishments for them exercising their right.
