I’ve seen quite a few references to mass protests called for on the occasion of President Obama’s commencement address at UC Irvine today. Just now on our Twitter feed:
Here is the birther nonsense protester graphic:
The President spoke, and there were protests. The Los Angeles Times covered the story, saying:
Outside Angel Stadium, a few dozen protesters lined the streets to voice opposition to the administration’s policies on deportation and drone strikes in the Middle East. One group was draped in all black with their faces covered chanting "No border. No nation. No more deportation."
Inside the stadium the mood was more jovial, with parents flocking to souvenir stands to buy $5 copies of graduation programs emblazoned with the president’s picture.
