Inquisitr - Condoleezza Rice will deliver the commencement address at the May 18 Rutgers University graduation ceremony despite opposition from faculty.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, progressive/liberal professors launched a protest against Condi Rice as commencement speaker because of her role in the Iraq War and in aggressive interrogation techniques. The professors want the speaking invitation rescinded. Rutgers is the state university of New Jersey.
Rice, a Republican, is the first African American woman to serve as National Security Adviser and Secretary of State in the George W. Bush administration. She holds a Ph.D in political science and was the former provost of Stanford University where she now teaches. She is an accomplished pianist who also speaks Russian fluently.
Most people would agree that the Iraq war was a disaster. That being said, can you imagine the same group of professors trying to prevent Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, from speaking at Rutgers? After all, Clinton voted for the Iraq war as a US Senator. As Secretary of State, she continued Bush-era foreign policy into the Obama administration. As the previous Inquisitr piece noted, she is also involved in what many feel is a cover-up of the terrorist murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
