Voice‘s On-Campus Choices: Aaahh!! Real Republicans!

Former White House Chief of Staff, “The Architect,” Karl Rove

Karl Rove will be speaking Wednesday, April 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Lohrfink Auditorium in the Rafik B. Hariri Building. Rove will be speaking about his newly-released memoir, Courage and Consequence, which chronicles his personal and political life. In a effort to stop “disruptions” during the Q&A session, GU Lecture Fund is collecting questions from students beforehand and then randomly selecting questions for Rove to answer. The event will also be streamed live online.

Newt Gingrich will also be speaking tonight and screening his movie, Nine Days That Changed the World, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the ICC Auditorium. What are the odds that neither of these events will be interrupted by protesters?

  1. We should attend liberal meetings and protest all that they do with conservative rhetoric. That way it will be fair that any person who comes to Georgetown in order to present a speech gets no point across.

    Mr. Rove, I wish you luck and maybe five minutes of decorum if youre lucky.

  2. But then the people on campus will call you a racist!
