Graduates Turn Backs on Liz Cheney as She Gives Commencement Speech – One Had a Brutal Message on Cap

Published on

Sunday at her alma mater in Colorado, former Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney was jeered as she delivered a commencement address.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, one student also wrote a derogatory message for her on a graduation headwear.

The former political scion and rising GOP figure addressed graduating students at Colorado College in Colorado Springs.

As she has for much of the last two years, Cheney centered her remarks on the January 6, 2021 Capitol incursion and her opposition to former President Donald Trump.

“After the 2020 election and the attack of January 6th, my fellow Republicans wanted me to lie,” she told students, according to the Daily Mail.

Cheney added, “They wanted me to say the 2020 election was stolen, the attack of January 6th wasn’t a big deal, and Donald Trump wasn’t dangerous.”

She then discussed her resignation as chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.

“I had to choose between lying and losing my position in House leadership,” she said, referring to being stripped of the position in May 2021.

According to the report about her commencement address, Cheney has very few supporters on the left or the right.

According to the Daily Mail, students turned away from the former congresswoman and refused to look at her.

Reportedly, others hissed during her remarks.

One student’s graduation cap went viral on Twitter with a message that read. “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, war monger??? Your hate is loud.”

During her tenure as a prominent member of the House select committee investigating the incursion, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney gained the favor of many on the political left.

Cheney lost more than her position as the third most influential Republican in the House. She was not competitive in her primary and succumbed to Republican Harriet Hageman, who won the general election in November.

In August of 2008, Cheney lost her primary to Hageman by roughly 40 points.

The Jan. 6 committee was dissolved last year, and Cheney resigned in January.
