Re: “Tom Tancredo's second coming

And you're right....he is a racist man with inhumane ideas about people of color, and I am dedicating my life to dismantling all forms of oppression, but at least he's open to debate....

Did you ever consider the pointless nature of a debate with a man who openly devalues multiculturalism? Because I did. I don't understand the need for a debate with someone like Tancredo. If I know his point of view, he has an idea of mine, and neither of us have any interest in making changes....what exactly would be the reason for engaging in said discussion? It's not about fear, like he seems to think...it's about making better use of my time.

Re: “Tom Tancredo's second coming

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, but the end of year was rather vigorous. I see that the debate is long over...but the point I was trying to make is that I was there. The chanting didn't begin until after the walk out, on the way to the pit. The statement shouted in attempted unison was "No human is illegal." I am not a part of SDS, so no, that's not what I wanted at all. I just wanted you to do a better job of informing the public about what actually went down.

Simple request. And I'm actually curious about the title of your article...What made you choose "the second coming" versus something else...something that doesn't seem to liken Tancredo to Christ as much...not that that was your intention, necessarily...just that perhaps it could be construed in that manner.

Re: “Tom Tancredo's second coming

1) It was April 26th.
2) Your Tancredo quote is wrong.
3)There was a shout in unison of "No Human is Illegal," not "Education not Deportation." That was later in the pit.
4) There was no chanting in the auditorium, only after everyone cleared the building.
5)I don't have enough time to point out how many ways you ruined this report
6)Were you even there? If so, maybe learn to take better notes. Stop embarrassing yourself.
