The Daily Minute
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s the story that keeps on telling. Bwog presents a few bits of Minuteman news that have come out in the last few hours:
Item # 1: Stephen Colbert is one-upping Jon Stewart tonight by bringing none other than Jim Gilchrist himself onto the show (airing at 11:30 and 1:30) as a special guest. Word? Word.
Item # 2: A spokesman for the Minuteman Project said that they are planning to sue Columbia under the 1964 Civil Rights Act for the treatment of Jim Gilchrist and Marvin Stewart, claiming that claims Stewart was called the N-word by a member of the audience. They also complain that the University failed to provide adequate security, and–to add insult to purported injury–Stewart had a folder with personal information and plane tickets stolen. Also named in the prospective suit: banner-bearer Karina Garcia, who called Gilchrist a murderer on national TV. “The Chicano Caucus is radical and no different from the KKK,” said spokesman Tim Bueler. “All they’re trying to do is incite hatred and incite racism against a man they’ve never met.”
The University’s spokesman, Robert Hornsby, denied any knowledge of legal action. But they said it on Fox, so it must be true!
Item # 3: The Minuteman Protesters Defense Committee has called a meeting tomorrow at 6:00 PM in the Intercultural Resource Center to organize defense for…itself.
Item # 4: You might not like how the CU GOP operates, but at least they’re not dressing up as illegal immigrants and chasing each other across campus.
