It is now Day 4 of the WSA election scandal that has to this point in time kept Giant Joint from assuming the WSA representative seat that it rightly deserves.
Today, protesters showed up en masse, many wearing the color green, which has come to symbolize much of what Giant Joint stands for.
However, while many are fighting for democracy and freedom, others are trying to use fear tactics to maintain business as usual. The recent Blargus Op-Ed written by Dave Wolovsky ’10 is one such example. In it, Mr. Wolovsky urges people not to vote for Giant Joint, blatantly ignoring the fact that Giant Joint has already won the requisite percentage of the vote to claim electoral victory. This seems to embody the main line response to these events, which has been to ignore the truth of the election results, or that an election has even happened (Wolovsky wrote this attack on Giant Joint on December 21, a full two days after word came out that Giant Joint had in fact won).
Wolovsky also slanders the WSA, calling it a (sexual) “liaison,” and “something to piss on.”
He ends his diatribe in a tone we’ve heard before from those resisting change. Resorting to straight up fear mongering, he claims that Giant Joint “won’t save us when Mike ‘the Professor’ Roth decides he knows what’s best for everyone and becomes Mike ‘the Terminator.'” I’ll let history be the judge of that, David. If that’s really your name.
This reporter thinks Mr. Wolovsky should stick to the jokes of the Ampersand and stay out of serious politics.
