John Laesch met with the Northern Illinois University College Democrats on Sept. 11th. Laesch spoke with the NIU College Dems about the politics of fear and the politics of hope.
“The tragic events of 9/11 caused President Bush to engage in the politics of fear,” Laesch said. “Living in mistrust, fear and hate only creates more of the same. We have the power to engage in a new kind of politics, the politics of hope,” Laesch added.
