Students to stage walkout of Pence speech
By Mark Hensch - 05/19/17 12:50 PM EDT

A student activist group at the University of Notre Dame says it plans on staging a walkout of Vice President Pence’s commencement speech this Sunday.

Student organizers told ThinkProgress that 50 to 100 people could walk out of Pence’s remarks Sunday.

“During his time as governor of the state of Indiana and now as a Vice-President, Pence has targeted the civil rights protections of members of [the] LGBT+ community, rejected the Syrian refugee resettlement program, supported an unconstitutional ban of religious minorities, and fought against sanctuary cities,” We StaND For said in a statement to ThinkProgress Friday.

Doubt they will see anywhere near that number of walkers.  This guy is talking out his ass.

You know if I really hated who was going to speak at my commencement I simply wouldn't go.  I wouldn't try to ruin it for other people and behave like a jerk.  I hate commencements anyway.  They are long and boring.

My commencement address was a snooze, too.

ETA: IMO, commencements are more important to the parents of the graduates, who likely footed the bills for them. These pissants don't understand the concept of common decency/courtesy. Just goes to show how little they learned at Notre Dame.

Student organizers?  Wanna bet the organizers are professional anarchists with ties to groups like Black Lives Matter?  Probably are not even students or employees of Note Dame.
