Texas Southern Says No To Republican Cornyn; Yes To Sheila Jackson Lee!

Talk about a screwed up system! Senator John Cornyn has been told by Texas Southern not to show up for a commencement ceremony for their students.

However, Democrat Rep. Al Green and Shelia Jackson Lee will remain on the scheduled to speak. That backward don’t you think?

Jackson Lee brings nothing but partisan language to the table while I don’t know Green, so that say something right there. College Universities are expanding their snowflake tantrums to Republican members of Congress and not just President Trump.

Texas Southern University said Friday that it has canceled its commencement speech by John Cornyn, the U.S. senator who represents the public university. The decision comes amid outcry on the Houston campus over the Republican senator’s support for the Trump administration.

Cornyn had been set to speak at the historically black university on Saturday. The university said in a statement that it has asked Cornyn “to instead visit with our students again at a future date in order to keep the focus on graduates and their families.”

“We, along with Senator Cornyn, agree that the primary focus of commencement should be a celebration of academic achievement,” the statement said.

A Cornyn spokesman responded in an email with this statement:

“Senator 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.”

You won’t believe who gets to stay and talk, however;

Two Democratic members of Congress who had also been scheduled to speak — U.S. Reps. Al Green and Sheila Jackson Lee, both of Houston — will remain part of the program.

What’s going on on college campuses is a shame. Letting students dictate who can and can’t speak should never happen. I can’t believe Democrats have gone down this road. I’m sure there are Democrats as ashamed of this as I am.

The mindless libs can’t face a different view point than their own but have no problem inflicting theirs on everybody. So little delicate snowflakes go bury your heads in the sand in your sale places and hide from life and all its reality!

The answer is simple. Have a graduation ceremony, with Senator Cornyn as the commencement speaker. Any graduate wishing to attend signs a document attesting that they will be respectful. All others will be mailed their diplomas. Any student attending the graduation who causes a problem will have their diploma destroyed and their degree revoked. Problem solved.
