    They talked about what they called multiculturalism, which is a universal mix up. Take Humanity put in a bag, shake it together and only heaven knows what would come out. They wanted to get rid of what existed, all the little grey people of the world who hate beautiful diversity of Human development. They always want to get rid of the natural, the noble and beautiful, they wanted to get rid of it. They wanted to make Nature as grey as themselves.

    Pompeo is an example of what comes out of the other end of West Point. God help us if we go to war under Trump. A retired Air Force commander retired for 20 years, whose last post was of a major Air Force command told me the Marines were the last bastion of military integrity and discipline in the US military. Getting minorities graduated from our academies as exclaimed by Pence is pandering. It is one thing to have cadets and midshipman graduated, but teaching them to being moral leaders is another. Notice I said moral leaders not patriotic leaders. Patriotism in the US as understood by many US corporate controlled politicians has been perverted.

    He's so proud of them that he's still calling them African even though none of them have probably ever been to Africa or even know a single person that's ever been to Africa but we're still calling them Africans it's so pathetic it's insulting you got people going to West point to serve the United States of America and you're still calling them Africans I wonder how many hundreds of years black people have to be here before we stop calling them Africans

    Keep buying into that whole "diversity is a good thing" BS and the United States will continue to become a third-world schitzhole country.

    Of course the comment section still found something to be mad about in this very vanilla and PC speech.

    Pence is one of the most viciously maligned political figures possibly ever. I have never seen him do anything disrespectful to anyone because of their race, sexuality, or religious beliefs and it's gross that many still try to portray him as some homophobe. Especially Buttigieg, who Pence has treated with nothing but kindness, but Pete turned his back on Pence to go join the mob.

    Sadly, Air Force Academy graduating cadets had to swallow hard a month ago and put up with the supreme leader as their speaker. Ditto for last year's Naval Academy graduates. After personally seeing Trump, many newly commissioned officers were likely questioning his/her respective decisions to volunteer for military service four years earlier, unknowing that they would be led by a clown in 2019.
