Our beloved Ricky Stanzi, in a recent interview with fotp Marc Mascasa, made some bold claims about hippies and communists in Iowa City, as seem here. The interview is normal Stanzi being Stanzi but at the 3:40 mark, he makes some bold statements:
Absolutely, it’s very liberal over here, very liberal. I know what you mean. Some people think it is. You get to college and this seems to be the most liberal place ever. I remember telling that to my dad and he said, that’s just how colleges are. I don’t know how other colleges are, but when you walk around here, you’ve got people . . . you’ve got guys walking around in dresses. I’ve seen and hippies. They’re doing nothing. There’s the Ped Mall area down there. Right in the middle. Those people are going nowhere. Those people are the people who don’t like America.
A lot of students are reacting with this:
Minus the "overreaction" clause (and mainly I love the Office and felt a reference to Andy punching a wall is always good.)
My thoughts? It's blown out of proportion. Entirely out of proportion. And I'm not going to sit here and harp on a guy for talking about what he believes.
You thoughts? I'm interested in hearing how others feel about this.
