Via Gateway Pundit, palate-cleansing fun for the whole family. She specializes in identity studies, naturally enough (gender studies, chicano studies, queer theory, etc.), and so naturally enough, an address to students had to turn into a political harangue. Oh, and naturally enough, she mischaracterized the law:
“The new Arizona law generally known as SB 1070 is considered the strictest anti-immigrant legislation in the country and is explicitly intended to drive undocumented immigrants out of the state. One reason it has instigated a boycott is because to a whole lot of people, myself included, it appears to not only invite but require the police to engage in racial profiling.”
Actually, the statute requires cops not to engage in racial profiling, and I’m not sure why she thinks it’s any more draconian than, say, federal law or various local ordinances that look just like it, but identity studies is all about “narratives,” right? Well, she’s got her narrative and she’s not letting go. And why should she? The demagoguery is paying big dividends for Democrats in Colorado and Arizona so far, with Latino support surging for Michael Bennet and Rodney Glassman. More amnesty bracelets, Pelosi, stat!
