Default Clip of the U of Arizona commencement speech, the Soto fiasco

I guess she thought the commencement was all about her.

What a self absorbed nitwit.

I would of been a very upset parent listening to that at my child's graduation. Pushing her opinion and mis-information on their day.

who was that?!! It's horrible that she would bring up such a divisive issue at a celebration such as a graduation, espec when she said "anti-immigrant". what part of ILLEGAL does she not understand? what a dummy. And this was in the school of social sciences? man, i'd hate to see what kind of reception that she would get in the business school.

Bringing the Arizona bill up was stupid. This is a day about the graduates. NOT politics.

I disagree, I think she was right to bring up the subject and brave to do so. Those who booed her were rude and wrong.

Brave? No way. She was nothing but an inconsiderate boor who had a captive audience and chose to preach and ram her views down the throats of people who were there for a college commencement honoring the graduates.

That's not the venue to be a self-righteous narcissist.

She should be teaching at a liberal cesspool like Berkeley. Or maybe with that La Raza professor at UCLA. What a b*tch she is to turn a proud day such as graduation into her own grandstanding platform. She deserved EVERY boo that she received. Worthless c***.

Yea that's a wee bit too far. Like I always tell people on other forums, I'd be more than happy to talk politics but this isn't the place.
