If it’s a spring weekend in Berkeley you can guarantee there’s something  going on for everyone. Among the many activities of this past weekend, contributing photographer Ted Friedman caught 4/20 day on the Cal campus, when marijuana fans celebrate their passion; the Solano Art Walk; and Record Store Day at Rasputin Music on Telegraph Avenue.

  • We couldn’t quite believe what we were seeing, but you’re right about the group. The quotation marks will be removed forthwith!

    Thanks. I tend to expect the worst here in the wake of that infamous article you posted containing aggressively contemptuous and dehumanizing caricatures of Tea Party supporters (which had strong connotations of ethnic and cultural bigotry).

  • guest

    The Berkeley College Republicans are infamous for tone-deaf sarcasm.

  • guest

    “cultural bigotry”

    Is DisGuested suggesting that we should eliminate bigotry by considering all cultures equally valid? That sounds like an extreme form of left-wing multiculturalism.

  • Which article are you talking about?

  • DisGuested

    “Bigotry” is not synonymous with “evaluation.” I am definitely more left-wing than the Davos crowd around here.

    Nothing ironic at all. No, Republicans are as great a threat to our National Security as Al Qaeda.
