Columbia-sponsored high school, created as Manhattanville quid pro quo, evicted, now homeless: ironic? CU formally apologizes to Minutemen: reactions predictable Barnard career services better than Columbia’s…unless you want to be a bartender Speaking of which: bars crack down on legal IDs, but hire illegal bouncers Revelation of the day: “in certain cases drug use destroys […]
A digest of activisty news we missed from the last week. Copycats! Over at UCLA–which showed up on our “WTF” radar last year because of that taser business–protesters actually shut down a talk by some Minutemen-affiliated speakers. (note: This is not the Minuteman Project, but the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.) Or, rather, according to the site above […]
As the months drag on, the Minuteman saga continues to unfold. A few weeks ago, we told you that eight students had been sent discipilnary letters by University Rules Administrator Steve Rittenberg. That was coming from Provost Brinkley, who said that eleven total letters had been sent, three of which went to non-students, noting that […]
Because a few interesting tidbits have been coming over the alias, and we’re tired of talking about grades too. – We may have forgotten about the Minuteman dust-up, but the members of New York Immigration Control and Enforcement (a few of whom were in Roone on the fateful night) couldn’t let it go. According to […]
When a Minuteman speech was interrupted by a fire bell at Georgetown, it turned out to be a literal false alarm. Not so at Michigan State Law School recently, where Tom Tancredo, a Republican Congressman from Colorado who has become a sort of anti-illegal-immigration lightning rod, was forced to stop speaking when student activists twice sounded the alarm […]
With great power comes…great attention. Even from the most unlikely of sources: Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, has written of his support for the Minuteman protesters on his website. The organization’s inspiring press release can be read here. More interesting, however, is an article submitted by a reader of RCP’s site, entitled […]
An article in today’s New York Times takes a step back to look at President Bollinger’s track record on dealing with free speech issues in the last few years, given a run of pesky controversies. Why doesn’t Yale ever have to deal with this kind of thing? …maybe because they’re having too much fun following […]
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? […]
Yes, we know that October 4th was almost two weeks ago and most of you are sick of it, but there’s still a bit of news trickling in that we thought we’d share. Item # 1: We reported earlier that several protesters had been sent letters enumerating the charges against them, and they met with […]
Disclaimer: The following post was written by Taylor Walsh and Avi Zenilman, and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Bwog editorial staff. We also apologize to any readers upset at us for taking ourselves too seriously, and promise at least three fart jokes by Monday evening. It’s been an intense week and a half around here. As Bwog sifts through the […]
Columbia journalism and sociology professor Todd Gitlin knows activism. Once president of Students for a Democratic Society, there’s not much he hasn’t seen, and although now he writes from comfortable digs in the Journalism School, Gitlin has some words of wisdom for those still taking it to the streets. After an hour of stories from […]
Since the fallout from the events of October 4th just keeps coming, we present you with a digest of the latest. Item # 1: Matt Mireles, Spectator staff writer turned New York Post hatchet man, thinks we’re all a bunch of privileged guilty white kids. Bwog wouldn’t want to get between him and Karina Garcia […]
Two students have been sent letters regarding discipline for rushing the stage on October 4th. They’re strategizing and don’t want to release details. We’ll keep you updated. Bwog will try to minimize the use of all caps headlines in the future.
Bwog recieved notice recently that a sharp eyed poster pincher has uncovered the identity of the scoundrel who plastered the Muslim Student Association’s office yesterday afternoon with inflammatory press releases announcing the appearance by ex-PLO terrorist-turned-Christian Walid Shoebat that evening. Here’s how it happened: the original of the flyer was found in Schapiro by an […]
In which Bwog gives you a digest of the crazy crazy fallout of the events of October 4th. Item # 1: Columbia students recieved PrezBo’s latest statement on the Minutemen protest earlier today. But you couldn’t tell really, since he never said “Minutemen” or “protest”–although Bwog thinks that’s what he meant by “disruption.” Item # […]
