Lou Barletta, the College Course
Friday, April 02, 2010 at 9:26 am
Kevin DeAnna writes about the new Temple University course on Mayor Lou Barletta’s tenure in Hazelton — a class called, evocatively, “War in Hazelton.”
Week two begins with chronicles of “nativist violence” that characterizes much of American history, as well as the inevitable contention that arguments for restricting immigration were solely a product of racist ideology… Weeks Four and Five helpfully inform us that “the United States has interfered in Latin American politics in ways that perpetuate oppression and encourage violence.” You’ve got the reconquista coming, gringo.
The review is at the website of Young People for Western Civilization — hence the pro-Barletta tone.
