Skip to comments.Moochelle 0bama to Speak at My Daughter's College Graduation: Can I Heckle?
Posted on 06/16/2012 1:53:14 PM PDT by PROCON
My feelings are bittersweet. The love of my life, my 22 year old daughter is graduating from Oregon State University tomorrow. That's the sweet part.
The bitter part is that the commencement speaker is none other than Moochelle 0bama, a woman I politically abhor!
You want more bitter? It's on FATHERS'S DAY!!
Need more bitter?
I have to show up at the venue at 1:30, undergo a TSA type pat-down and then wait until 5:30 for Moochelle to give the Commencement speech, then the diplomas are awarded.
My question: Can I boo or heckle at these type of high-profile FLOTUS events?
BTW, my daughter feels the same way about Moochelle.
Moochelle? I just call her Mike, as in Bork and Mike Obunga, sort of like the Adams family...
Sounds like you could use prayers as well. :/
I would boycott.
Your daughter will understand.
I will not be humiliated by government thugs for any event or for any person.
I am pretty sure the Secret Service has shoot on sight orders for any hecklers of the Red Queen.
I suppose neither of you can take your iPod/MP3 players with earphones and listen to something worthwhile during The Speech instead?
Yes, that would be the best choice, thanks, I just needed to vent :-)
I’d skip the university-wide commencement with Mz Obama, and just go to the college ceremony that will actually give your daughter her degree.
Jimmy Carter spoke at my commencement. That stunk.
You have it worse. Far worse.
Bring a sign. Something simple and courteous like, “AMF in November.”
If the SS guards do not allow a sign, heckle. Your daughter will be proud.
Ask her if she’s ashamed to be an American again
For just that very reason.
Personally, I think it really sucks that such a wonderful event has to be spoiled by the presence of WH ghetto trash.
Show class, don’t spoil your daughter’s graduation and be quiet and dignified (i.e. do NOT heckle, do NOT make comments even under your breath, much less aloud) - enjoy your daughter’s graduation.
Throw a shoe at her?
Sure you can, but you have to be prepared for the consequences - being ejected, questioned by the SS, etc. Also, would your daughter approve or be horrified?
A friend of mine is going down there too. He is dreading having to listen to her drivel. At least thanks to nepotism you got the worst coach in the conference.
Pray for America
This is collage I presume.
Just make sure she knows what you are planning. If she is agreed, she might join you. Your relationship with her is paramount to the joy you would get heckling.
My two daughters would understand yet be mortified.
My oldest grandson would heckle her with me.
My my friends son graduated from University of Chicago law school, Clinton was the speaker and greater of the class. When it was his turned, he walked up looked the president in the eye, and said “no thank you” and walked off the stadium.
Good luck, whatever you decide.
If outdoor ceremony, pray for HEAVY RAIN. Happened at our sons grad years ago. Never had to hear the speech but diplomas were awarded. Take umbrella .. God will not be mocked.
Never, ever, donate to such a place after she graduates. And, please tell them why..
My question: Can I boo or heckle at these type of high-profile FLOTUS events?
Are you an American?
Then YES you can heckle a socialist using your daughters special day for a political campaign....
The graduation isn’t about you or Moochele, it is about your daughter. It wouldn’t be fair to your daughter to heckle if it is going to cause her embarrassment.
I feel terrible for you, really. Do whatever your daughter wants: it’s her graduation. Mine would want her diploma mailed to her, I think, but fortunately, the issue hasn’t come up!
thanks to nepotism you got the worst coach in the conference.
I won't really heckle, but I definately won't applaud!
If you consider yourself to be a member of the "vast right wing conspiracy" I humbly believe you are obligated to heckle.
One of the most obvious moves would be a hat made from a 32 oz big gulp cup. That should be a highly visible stand out!
I was going to suggest you dress up as chewbacca (if indoor), but since it is your daughter’s graduation, never mind.
Citizen: (at SS search point) Show me your search warrant.
SS: This is just for your safety sir...
Citizen: You are a government officer, anything you might find may be used in a prosecution against me. If you were serious about having a security check for my own protection, you would have just used university security. You are conducting a search that may lead to my arrest, barring my entry into a public event. Show me a search warrant to conduct this search.
Citizen: You do have a judge on call just to handle this type of request, right?
SS: Sir, you either need to submit to the screening or step out of line.
Citizen: You are barring me from a public event, conducting a search that may lead to my arrest. Such searches require either my consent or a search warrant. I do not consent to the search, where is your warrant?
Mooch also spoke at my daughter’s graduation; she’s a far better speaker than her wimpy husband. I didn’t heckle, but neither did I applaud. The high spot of the ceremony was Dave Brubeck receiving an honorary doctorate (I applauded for him).
Be respectful for your daughter’s sake and the sake of the position of First Lady, but tweet your feelings about her bs speech all during.
I quit sending money to Purdue after they had Bill Ayers on campus for a speech. If she doesn’t have to walk, I would have a party at home, wait for the postman to deliver the diploma and have him present it. Be sure to take a picture with him.
Turn your back to her and hope that others join in otherwise I vote for showing up after she is done.
Acute tourette syndrome.
The goofy gal kept repeating that the kids should have “Piss in their hats”.
Later one somebody claimed that she was saying “Peace in their hearts”, but “Piss their hats” makes more sense for a college graduation address.
ROTFLMAO, I may try that :-)
That is sucky. Lose-lose.
I neglected to add that the SS screening was very perfunctory.
It’s your daughter’s important day. Don’t spoil it, and don’t let the first lady spoil it.
She’s sure to make a long-winded re-election exhortation disguised as a graduation speech, so to stay comfortable on those hard bleacher seats, make sure you bring your big-butt-shaped seat cushion.
Too bad you won’t know the content of her speech beforehand. A group of you could work together to break out into applause at inappropriate moments.
Why can’t that walking sh*t on a stick spend Father’s Days with the WH Fudge Packer instead of ruining someone’s graduation......
"....too bad you can't find those little hand held toys that when you turn it upside down and flip it back...it makes an animal sound...about mid speech.....MOOOOOOOOOO......of course you stand up in shock and look around like everybody else
Just trying to help! 8^)
Sir, I hold a blackbelt in that technique, thanks :-)
When ‘she who is without pride’ begins to speak, stand and turn your back to her. If an enforcer challenges you, tell them you had an itch and you didn’t want to scratch it with ‘her’ looking at you. I’ll bet that others pick up on the cue quickly and join you.
I think you should just laugh hysterically the whole time. If anyone asks you to leave, threaten them with an ADA lawsuit.
DON’T DO IT!! Heckling at any event is usually stupid. Heckling at this event would mark you as an exceptionally stupid person. You’d thoroughly ruin your daughter’s graduation ceremony and make an ass of yourself. You don’t have to applaud loudly or even applaud. Think of the occasion and not the person giving the speech.
I just googled big gulp there are some hilarious pictures out there. Maybe this should be the official conservative protest statement. There may be a business opportunity in there somewhere.
