Left-Wing Grads Who Campaigned to Oust Commencement Speaker Get Chewed Out in the Most Ironic Way Imaginable

After more than 46 Haverford College students and three professors protested an invitation to Robert Birgeneau — former chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley — to speak at the suburban Philadelphia school’s commencement, Birgeneau eventually bowed out.

Those opposed to Birgeneau’s presence were apparently angry over how he handled a 2011 incident at Berkeley involving the use of force by police at a student protest.

Now enter former Princeton University President William Bowen — Birgeneau’s replacement — who stepped up to the microphone at Sunday’s ceremonies, ostensibly representing exactly what the protesters wanted.

Perhaps now they’re thinking…be careful what you wish for.

Those that attempt to silence others should be called for their ignorance.
