April 16th MCC “Take Back the Night” — 4 Comments

  1. I wonder if the TEA Party would be welcome to set up a table?

  2. I’m sure the tea party would be welcome, don’t you?

    After all they agree on everything about fighting violence, protecting women, and justice & the rule of law.

    Another table that should be there is a conceal carry table with info on lessons on how to protect yourself, & obtaining a CCW license.

    Now THAT would take back the night!

  3. Since conceal carry has been passed in Illinois the death toll has already declined.

    It is the right of every person to be able to defend themselves.

    An even playing field is the only answer to those that have no respect for life and property.

    Women need to be pro-choice when it comes to defending both.

    Vigils and glow sticks are patently ridiculous.

  4. Ugh, Take Back the Night events are designed by radical feminists to push their agenda (which expands far beyond sexual violence) onto the captive student body and to villainize young men.

    Christina Hoff Summers has an excellent piece concisely summarizing how the policies advocated by the “Take Back the Night” man haters are designed to destroy the lives of men. http://chronicle.com/article/In-Making-Campuses-Safe-for/127766/

    Rather than welcome these nutters to the campus, there should be a counter protest.
