Protestors Picket Barrett

Missed this story from last week, but it's still worth highlighting:

And according to the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh College Republicans, the decision by UWO's Campus Greens to invite controversial University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer Kevin Barrett to speak Thursday night was just that, a waste.

"We do support free speech, that's why we're here," Nelson said to protestors and curious students outside Reeve Memorial Union on Thursday. "What we don't agree with is our taxpayer dollars and tuition dollars being wasted to support this idiot."

In August, Nelson, chairman of UWO's College Republicans, began organizing a rally for Thursday in conjunction with and in protest of Barrett's presentation about academic freedom and his theories about the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Good for them! I suppose pathetic Barrett now claims people are trying to "silence" him.

I bet! I hate professors like that. Bees in their bonnets don't help me pass courses.

Someone should do a Bill Gates on Barrett and hit him right in the kisser with a big fat pie.

And they should mush it in his face for extra points.

Enough pies, and maybe Barrett will shut his pie hole.
