Young America's Foundation ^ | 5/18/06 | Young America's Foundation

Posted on 05/26/2006 10:51:37 AM PDT by cowtowney

The preponderance of commencement speakers at our nation's top colleges and universities were Democratic Party officials, leftist activists, and members of the old media, according to a survey released by Young America’s Foundation. The survey also uncovers separate graduation ceremonies for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) students as well as Black students.

That's fine, but anyone attending an "alternate" graduation should be barred from the regular one.

I wonder what would happen if the straight whites asked to have their own graduation.

Imagine the outcry if Christians demanded to have separate graduations...

The straight whites are too busy and too smart to ask for anything this stupid. Why would they want to get in the sewer with the rest of the trash going to our colleges and universties?

unbelievable there would be separate graduations for Black and the whole confused sexuality people.

Martin Luther King is turning in his grave.

Whatever happened to being judged by the content of your character, not the color of your skin.

Or to paraphrase, judged by the content of your character, not by where you put genitals or what type of genitals you have.

but what about diversity? this just cracks me up! these leftists are upside down... like the leftist hippies of the 60's who professed the anti-government mantra... "get government out of our lives!" and they are now the ones who demand that the people get in line with the government... they are upside down...

Good thing I didn't have a mouth full of tea! It would have splattered all over my computer. Very good point. If someone had the nerve to ask for a white graduation you would be able to hear the screams of outrage clear across the nation.

Leftist hippies of the 60's we're only anti-government because it wanted them to go the Viet Nam or the government held that is was unlawful to be a vagrant or to mess with dope. Oh, they were for government alright, their kind of collective government

Am I the only one that noticed on Oprah's "Legends" show that all the servers were white (maybe not ALL but the majority)? And no, I usually don't watch Oprah. It was just there on the primetime when I flipped through. That caught my eye. If it had been a bunch of white "Legends" and all the servers were black I think we would have heard about it. All that to say I'm tired of this separatist attitude from everyone as they fling "you're a racist/homophobe" comments out the other sides of their mouths.

I hate to hijack a thread but...

Why is it that homosexual men are "Gay" but lesbians are... lesbians?

It bugs me everytime I see the phrase "gay and lesbian" whatever...

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.

Only 10% of homosexual men are born that way. The rest just get sucked into it.

Colleges have been turned into crucibles, any conservatives coming out of them will surely be tempered while the rest will be as malleable as modeling clay.

...separate graduation ceremonies for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) students as well as Black students.

This is so confusing. Does that amount to 2, 5, or 8 separate graduations?

Is there one graduation for the sexually 'different' and another for the black students? Or is there one each for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and black students? Or eight separate ones for black gays, other gays, black lesbians, other lesbians, etc?

Lack of conservative speakers at college graduations.


Maybe we could have ours too. If you can't beat them, join them (in our own graduation ceremony). I don't have any problems with this. I think that today with many colleges split up majors why not split more. It will ultimately make the ceremonies shorter and everyone wins on that one. I know this does not sound very conservative, but I am just being honest and realistic. I just can't find it no matter how hard I think about this to have a problem with it.

It bugs me they have hijacked the rainbow as a symbol of their gayness. I'd like to have a rainbow bumper sticker with words on it that read:

I'm not gay -
I just like rainbows!

Don't even get me started on Oprah. A few years back, I tuned into her show. There was some black moms' support group she was featuring--called Mocha Moms. Oprah must have made sure she said Mocha Moms 500 times. I forget where the group was but they helped each other out with mothering duties or when a member had a new baby. Not a bad idea, but imagine if we started a group called Vanilla Moms.

Looks like the Mocha Moms organization is still going. Here is what is says on their website:

Mocha Moms Online is a site for stay at home mothers of color. Mocha Moms is a support group for stay at home mothers of color who have chosen not to work full-time outside of the home in order to devote more time to their families.

Anyway, Medved did a program on Oprah a couple of weeks ago. She's America's new spiritual leader (according to a USA Today article and her fans) if you didn't know that. Medved said he had been on her program 3 different times and on two of those occasions witnessed her seriously berating her staff. He said that if he had acted that way to any of the people that work for him, they would have quit. I guess to make up for her rage, she buys her staff off with lavish gifts. Also, the guy that used to produce Medved's sneak previews program went on to produce Oprah's program. I think he confirmed everything that Medved witnessed. IMO Oprah thinks she is a god because she has made a lot of money and people will trip all over themselves to wipe her butt. I don't buy into what she preaches. I don't like her attitude and I don't like her protege Dr. Phil either.

Probably a good idea to separate the sexual perverts in the interest of protecting the public health. Such a practice should extend to restrooms and living quarters as well. At least this is a start.

For many people, all arguments are situational. This isn't just confined to leftists. For example, when a guy starts with the fire department, he hates the rank structure, and gets upset that Chiefs do whatever they want. When he makes Chief, he wishes the firefighters would just STFU and do what they're told.

The multiculturalists insisted on acceptance of all cultures as being equal in value as a tactical strategy when Christianity dominated culture. Now, they have no problem suppressing viewpoints with which they don't agree.
