That doesn't even make sense considering the content of the zine.  You're just really fucking dumb is all.

You're right. I'll make sure to read the required party literature so I don't get used as a pawn. Thank you for showing me the light.

You sounded like an evangelist. "Read this to make sure you don't fuck up." I doubt you meant to sound like that, but you did.

Anyone planning to attend should consider reading this short article first so as to ensure that their time and energy are utilzed in such a way as to confront racism and white supremacy instead of being used as pawns for future resumes of aspiring politicians and opportunists (Emory has a bad history of this):
