Liberal commencement speakers outnumber conservatives

A survey of commencement speakers for the top 100 universities in America shows that liberal bias in colleges is stronger than anticipated.

The Young America’s Foundation’s 19th Annual “Commencement Speakers Survey” reveals that 71 liberal speakers compared to ten conservative speakers have either spoken or are scheduled to speak for the graduation ceremonies.

Among the 71 liberal speakers, sixteen are members of the Obama Administration. In comparison to the last administration, only 14 Bush officials spoke at the top 100 universities during his entire presidency. During Obama’s three year presidency, administration officials have already spoken 29 times.

Within the sixteen Obama administration speakers, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is one of the officials set to speak at Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic and Jesuit school in the country. Many are opposed to this due to her support for the Obamacare mandate which would force the Catholic church to pay for contraception.

Although there has always been a liberal slant in higher education, the survey has discovered it is at an all time high. Young America’s Foundation’s Ron Meyer said, “This year’s survey is the worst in at least a decade. Big Education is teaming up with Big Government to ruin the future for young people, and universities have no problem hosting the administration’s officials and allies to spread a false message. After four years of propaganda like this, graduates should ask: What did I just pay for?”

    Things have certainly chagend since I was in school. Then the classes that taught these trades were sought after by students just because they were good paying jobs. Now all the focus is on sending kids to college. We have lost all balance in education. Not all children want to go to college and not all children want to go straight to work. Some want to work before college or to pay college expenses. I would like to see public high schools actually find out what the students want to do after graduation and help them make those dreams come true.By the way my Dad was a master carpenter. Could build anything. I own my home and I regularly employ plumbers, carpenters and electricians to maintain my home. I own a car and believe me I use a qualified mechanic to maintain that car. These jobs are honorable and these people deserve the money they are paid. To become the best at these jobs takes longer than going to college to get a degree.
