How About “Catch the Dumbass?”
Check out this great clip from Sam Graham-Felsen about the recent Catch the Immigrant“game” organized by the crazy ass College Republicans at NYU. Sam is doing some really cool stuff covering news in a more multi-media fashion including print, blogging and video. He gets the direction that news media should be going in.
The College Republicans aka facists-in-training organized this game in which a student is given a name tag reading “Illegal Immigrant” and other students are asked to “catch the immigrant.” Yeah, I know, its all kinds of stupid, but that’s College Republicans. As with other episodes like this, the event only really got attention because the much larger crowd of students who showed up to protest this stupidity. And that begs the question, are counter-protests the most effective way to respond?
