CornynTexas Southern University, a historically black university, announced Friday that Sen. John Cornyn’s Saturday commencement speech was canceled after opposition from students at the school.

The cancellation of Cornyn’s address came just days after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was booed and heckled as she delivered a commencement speech at a different historically black university, Bethune-Cookman University in Florida.

Cornyn’s spokesman said, “Sen. Cornyn was honored to be invited to address TSU’s graduates, but he respects the administration’s decision and looks forward to continuing to engage with the university in the future.”

    Apparently ALL the colleges are liberal and have been convinced that ALL conservatives are evil NAZI’s intent on destroying the United States. Maybe they had better look in the mirror at the REAL enemy of the state.

    To me, the solution to this recent trend, is if the students choose to object to the commencement speaker (these people are not usually selected casually) the commencement ceremony should be cancelled; and the successful graduates be required to come to the school administrative office to pick up their diploma.

    White people better wake up, and get their head out of their back side.

    ANY STUDENT THAT PULLS THIS STUNT, GET THEIR NAMES AND KICK THEM OUT OF SCHOOL. CUT THE FEDERAL FUNDS GOING TO THESE COLLEGES, I DONT WANT MY TAX MONEY GOING FOR THIS TYPE OF EDUCATION.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    “THE DOUBLE STANDARD”

    There are African Americans,
    Mexican Americans,
    Asian Americans,
    Arab Americans,
    Native Americans, etc.
    …And then there are just –
    Americans

    You have the United Negro College Fund.
    You have Martin Luther King Day.
    You have Black History Month.
    You have Cesar Chavez Day.
    You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
    You have the NAACP.
    And you have BET.

    If we had WET
    (White Entertainment Television)
    … We’d be racists.

    If we had a White Pride Day
    … You would call us racists.

    Then there is so-called
    gay pride day

    If we had White History Month
    … We’d be racists.

    If we had a White Miss America Contest
    …We’d be racists

    If we had any organization for only whites
    To “advance” OUR lives
    … We’d be racists.

    We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,
    A Black Chamber of Commerce,
    And then we just have the plain
    Chamber of Commerce.
    Wonder who pays for that?

    If we had a college fund that only gave
    White students scholarships
    … You know we’d be racists.

    There are over 60 openly proclaimed
    Black-only Colleges in the US,
    Yet if there were “White-only Colleges”
    … THAT would be a racist college.

    In the Million Man March,
    You believed that you were
    Marching for your race and rights.
    If we marched for our race and rights,
    … You would call us racists.

    You are proud to be black,
    Brown, yellow and orange,
    And you’re not afraid to announce it.
    But when we announce our white pride
    …You know we would be racists

    If a white police officer
    Shoots a black gang member
    Or beats up a black drug-dealer
    Who is running from the LAW and
    Posing a threat to ALL of society
    … You call him a racist.

    …If you are white and didn’t support Obama’s Fascist/Marxist change, then you are a racist.

    …If you are black and didn’t support Obama’s Fascist/Marxist change, then you are an Uncle Tom

    …If you are black and you voted for Obama because he is considered black, what are you?

    You call me a racist.

    I call you a hypocrite

    Well, maybe they’ll ask Maxine Waters to speak. She is well know for introspection, depth, and intelligence, ………. what the “F” am I saying? Maxine Waters is the speaker these F-ing idiots deserve, she’ll be able to connect with them at the same level as earthworms ……. Once again progressive liberal idiots show their colors, need I say more?
