volume was to low to be able to listen to it.

I thought it was excellent advice for the graduates. And not boring.

Did students really walk out or did they just need to use the restroom? I must have missed the offensive part/parts.

Really good speech though. I’m going to have my kids watch it.

They weren't offended by what he was saying. They were offended because he was Jewish.

I believe they left before he ever began speaking. Their loss.

Yes, their loss. Jerry Seinfeld is awesome.
But this shows the anti-woke movement to restore sanity is alive and well. It just doesn't get all the attention.



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
-- Justice Janice Rogers Brown

What he said had nothing to do with what the walkers chose to do.

They had their minds made up the night before.





Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.

^^^That seems to be the case. The anti-Israel folks that walked out folks had premade signs and cap decorations. I’ll bet they don’t refuse their diplomas and degrees though.

Surprisingly - not - the people that are supposed to be ‘educated’ and open minded and curious seem to be the most bigoted, least informed and most intolerant in this country.

Now that they’ve got a massive student debt I hope they have a brutal time finding a job but Starbucks and Walmart are always hiring.

It’s almost like they didn’t learn a damned thing.

The further down this hyper-sensitivity, MUST over-react to EVERY perceived slight road we take, the more it exposes these people that they are truly fools who've bought into and subscribed to this religion of intolerance.

There was but a small handful of students who walked-out, video shows what you could assume are a couple of people getting up to going to the bathroom or get a refreshment, yet the media chose to focus on their actions rather than the speaker. Another example of the willful media stoking the flames of divisiveness by creating a bigger story than it truly is.

These snowflakes are angry that Jerry Seinfeld called them out last week and said that Seinfeld could never be made in 2024 and this younger generation killed comedy as we knew it because of wokeness and they ironically proved him right.

One might consider that the younger generation didn't kill it per se - it was largely the weak minded people in charge in large corporations and public office.

Everybody should have just let the little idiots whine and cry. Instead, those in charge bent to their will. Sure, there are those in charge that have the same leanings as the little idiots. But a lot of those in charge just bent over.

EVERYBODY needs to ignore these little idiots from now and ever more. Let them cry and sulk in some corner of the world where the rest of us can just forget about them.

I hope at least some of those students re-cultivate a sense of humor; it appears to be missing from America’s (the Western World’s) college campuses. I have heard more than a few comedians say they won’t even play colleges anymore. As Seinfeld stated, a sense of humor is necessary to get through life.

A sense of humor requires a certain level of intellect. I don't see that with the anti (cause dujour) crowd.



I found what you said riveting.
