Demonstrations are for liberals only 

That seems to be the attitude of Roger Williams College, where controversy continues over its College Republican organization offering a white-only scholarship. We noted this group's activism last October when they ran some rather indelicate materials on homosexuality. It's clearly a publicity stunt, a bit of street theater, as the head of the group (whose parents are Puerto Rican) notes, and the ACLU has supported the CRs in this case, more than we can say for the Republican Party itself. Jason Mattera, the head of the CRs, responds with the same brusqueness the group has shown all year.
Sadly, the current leadership of the Republican Party is made up of a bunch of cowards who are not willing to fight for principle, a party that worships the [altar] of political expediency.
