WesSpeak discussion

If you’ve been following the Argus/Wesleying recently,  you couldn’t have missed a new WesSpeak submitted by alum Martin Benjamin ’57.

Wesleying even includes a “bigger, longer and uncut” version. http://wesleying.org/2010/10/08/martin-benjamins-wespeak-bigger-longer-uncut/

Earlier this week I linked to Martin Benjamin ’57’s  latest Wespeak (wherein he pretty much directly accuses President Roth and Muslim Chaplain Marwa Aly of being terrorist sympathizers) and discussed Benjamin in general—his language, his seemingly relished notoriety, and his tenuous relationship with Wesleyan as both a student body and some sort of abstract representation of everything wrong with liberal America today. Of particular interest, at least to readers of Tuesday’s Argus, would be his flagrant Islamaphobia.

We will be discussing this piece at this week’s meeting. Same time and place (9pm@88Home). You’re also welcome to leave any opinions as a comment to this post here 🙂
