Tancredo's ridiculous on immigration, but this is, dare I say it, far stupider.
Hit & Run - Does Tom Tancredo Count as an "Under-Represented Group"? - Reason Magazine:
"Former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo recently came to speak at the University of North Carolina... Students engaged in an act of destructive free expression to shut him up. Now the same students demand that UNC adopt a policy that...limits free expression.
...After a few students disrupted Tancredo's speech and broke a window, a couple hundred protesters gathered outside the building where the speech was being held:
"We shut him down; no racists in our town," they shouted. "Yes, racists, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night!"In the MyNC article linked above, Haley Koch, a student who was arrested for her involvement in the dust-up, rocks the cognitive dissonance like it's going out of style:
"[College is] a place where people should feel safe to be themselves and under-represented groups shouldn't feel that they have to be afraid when they walk around campus.""
