General Meeting

 

You will NOT want to miss our speaker next week. I guarantee that he will blow your stereotypes right out of the water. Niger Innis is the National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). Why, you may ask, is a rep of a liberal civil rights organization coming to talk to a conservative club such as ours? Well… he ain't a liberal (Currently working for Herman Cain's campaign) and CORE has moved to the RIGHT over the last 40 years, unlike NAACP and other like minded organizations who continue to hype the "victimization" of blacks. I have heard Niger speak before and you will find him to be a breath of fresh air. Meeting is June 2 at at 6:30PM in the ballroom. Bring your friends and guests (even from outside of Siena).

Best regards,

Phil Perine

President, Siena Conservatives
