haha, that just shows what BS this list is, there are three probably four prof's at the University of Michigan who are way more "dangerous" than either one of those prof's are simply because they advocate organizing and basebuilding, as opposed to writing papers and giving lectures. I'm sure that they'll be miffed at not being included.
what a loser.

i am in the same department as robert mcchesney here at the u of i. we talked about his dangerous status--he laughed. not the laugh of a "dangerous" intellectual.

and at uc santa cruz, i took classes with both angela and bettina...i'm glad to see they are thought of as dangerous though. for all of the right reasons :-)

i hope to make that list one day. hah!

Like many of you, I first saw this list in an email, and scanned it to see who I know. So yeah, I was excited to see Emma Perez with Bettina Aptheker and Angela Davis. And i thought of it as a righteous radical walk of stars.

But the email list also contains a preface which describes the list as being full of pedophiles and anti-Semites, which leaves me absolutely nauseous. The fact that I know this is RightSpeak for Homosexuals and those who support the Palestinians doesn't make it a bit more palatable.

BTW, Emma Perez notes that at one point in Horowitz's book she's called "Elizabeth Perez." I imagine this Freudian slip is a result of imagining a companion film to the book, in which Perez will be played by Elizabeth Peña.

Clearly Horowitz would like to be the Anti-Chomsky, although he doesn't make the grade.

Geez Nubian, where have I been that you haven't been!

man, i didn't know about the preface ktrion.

now, i'd rather not make the list.

that is pretty scary because as radicals go, i think that my two prof's are a lot more radical than emma perez, but she identifies as lesbian doesn't she? So hmm. why would she be making a list, but the other two women, who identify as straight, don't? Esp when one of the women is staunchly staunchly pro-palestinian and has already come under a campus wide attack for her views? is queerness really more offensive to a zionist that an anti-zionist??? (brownfemipower shaking head)

That's funny Ktrion.
