Ideological Smackdown: Free Food Edition!
Written by Bwog Staff
“Columbus was a criminal,” bellowed Hakim from the Low Steps mere moments ago. Disagree!, reply the College Republicans, who are grilling burgers and hot dogs for their fellow Columbus Day celebrants. Yet CUGOP president Chris Kulawik, C ’08 emphasized that they are not “celebrating” Columbus per se: “we’re just recognizing it’s a national holiday” he said, adding that the cookout is a long-standing CUGOP custom. He then went into an etymological explication of the day’s significance: “Christopher Columbus. Columbia.”
Of course, Kulawik doesn’t seem to mind pissing people off–he’s the one behind Fox flamethrower Sean Hannity’s visit in a couple weeks. Maybe it was a trade for the number of times Kulawik has been a guest on their turf?
Later, a GOPer was overheard sending one of her ideological kinsmen to fetch veggie burgers at Morton Williams. When asked if vegetarianism conflicts with the GOPs presumed goal of laying the environment to waste, a first-year jokingly assured Bwog that the two are not irreconcilable.
