The Minnesota Republic is another of those fringey conservative student newspapers that get surprisingly well funded by the Republicans, and aren’t at all representative of the campus as a whole. This one is on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota, and they get enough money that they’re bringing in a couple of well-known speakers to discuss an issue of concern.
That issue is feminism.
And to discuss it, they’re flying in two people. Guess who? Hint: they’re not well-informed experts. They have more of a reputation as anti-feminist ideologues. Try to come up with the two worst names you can imagine.
Yep. It’s Milo Yiannopoulos and Christina Hoff Sommers! If you’re in the Twin Cities next Wednesday, you could pop in and listen to two loons tell each other lies.
The Minnesota Republic is pleased to host Milo Yiannopolous and Christina Hoff Sommers as they interview each other about the awful topic of contemporary Feminism.
Having failed to find a single member of the University of Minnesota’s Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies Department to debate Milo on the (supposed) virtues of modern, third wave, “quantum superstate” feminism, we are delighted to announce that Christina Hoff Sommers will be joining Milo on stage for this event!
This event will be held in Cowles Auditorium in the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. REMINDER: This event is free, unticketed, and will be seated at a first come, first served basis.
This event will be free and open to all members of the public.
Well, phenomenal. I look forward to future disinformation events sponsored by the Minnesota Republic. Perhaps they could bring in Kent Hovind and Ken Ham to discuss the awful topic of contemporary evolutionary biology? Or perhaps Christopher Monckton and Tony Watts to discuss the awful topic of contemporary climate science. A double bill of Bill Donohue and Bill O’Reilly to discuss the awful topic of contemporary atheism would also be enthralling.
But Wednesday the 17th? I think I’ve got an appointment then. Oh, yeah, I’ll be grading exams from my first-year students. Suddenly, that looks far more appealing than the alternative.
