The Young Democrats, Letter to the Editor

August 22, 2017

The hateful bigotry thrown around by one of our very own Cougs at the ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville, Virginia is beyond horrific. It’s sickening, appalling, and poisons the image of how a Coug is supposed to conduct them self. The hateful rhetoric stirred up by College Republican...
