Andrew Breitbart Disses Wesleyan at Tea Party Convention

Did you hear the one about the angry conservative lashing out at Wesleyan with silly, decades-old caricatures?

No, not Martin Benjamin—this time it’s commentator Andrew Breitbart, best known as editor of the Drudge Report and contributor to the Washington Times. In his keynote address to the First National Tea Party Convention this week, Breitbart unleashes his seething manifesto against MSNBC, the media in general (“It’s you that sucks!”), and . . . Wesleyan?

“Bad, racist, homophobic—all those buzzwords that they learned in their freshman orientation class at Wesleyan—are used as weapons to try to destroy you and intimidate you to not speak up.”
