Donald Rumsfeld to Damage the Reputation of Collin College on November 18

My college is going to have a war criminal as a guest speaker - Donald Rumsfeld on November 18 as part of the "KRLD Speaker Series." This man should be arrested and not speaking at our college. No one asked the faculty about this. There are 4,400-plus American casualties because of this liar. Will anyone join me with a protest sign at the Spring Creek Campus of Collin College on November 18 at 7:30 pm.?

I will be there to listen to Donald Rumsfeld speak. I hope you protesters are evicted from the campus before you get a chance to ruin my evening.

I have noticed that people on the right always post their comments anonymously. They are cowards. That's why Progressive have to hit back. These wimps will simper off into hiding if they face real opposition. By the way, anonymous, you show your true colors regarding civil liberties. If Rumsfeld has a right to lie for pay, we have a right to protest.
