The picketers had a special message for 19-year-old Sara Mikolajczak as she entered: “Racist, sexist, anti-gay / right-wing bigot go away.” The UW political science major was the target of the reactionary rhyming because, as chair of the College Republicans, she brought in conservative David Horowitz to speak about the mistreatment of women in Middle East dictatorships.
“I’ve been called names before,” Mikolajczak recalls. The problem with the Horowitz event, sponsored by the UW-Madison College Republicans, “was the death threats and the rape threats.”
