I thought Racist Tuesdays could use some badassery:
 
"I was thinking about Arizona, what I’m suggesting to my friends over there. Just like during the ’60s we had the Freedom Schools. They’ve got to start Freedom Schools and violate the law. Teach ethnic studies out there. I know very good friends of mine, Robert Rodriguez, who’s over at the University of Arizona at Tucson, and many of my really good friends out there. Okay we’re just going to teach ethnic studies and violate the law, get people in jail.
I think I’ll just have to go back to Arizona and do another lecture over there and have them get me arrested and let’s appeal the case all the way up to the Supreme Court in terms of just a first-amendment rights.”
