Iranian President Visits Columbia University

Monday, September 24 2007, the Iranian President Ahmadinejad, did I spell that right? I meant to write : President Ahm-on-a-jihad enjoyed a forum at Columbia University sponsored by the university's president Lee Bollinger.

A couple of quick points about Bollinger... Here's a guy, president of a reputable university, that claims he's a champion of free speech. Oh really?

Bollinger supports the banning of ROTC on campus.

Bollinger took meaningless action against students that disrupted and threatened the head of the Minutemen, effectively denying that American's freedom of speech.

Should Ahmadinejad have been afforded this opportunity to speak at Columbia? If you ask me the answer will be NO. You see I don't believe he deserves the status to speak at an American institution, not while he is a sponsor of terror.

Does that sound hypocritical on my part? Deny him a platform because his message doesn't fit my agenda?
The short answer: I will support & fight for the right of all AMERICANS no matter how vile to exercise their right to free speech.

There were some good points of this affront I suppose, just as I'm sure we can glean something helpful by listening to evil speak... The danger, however, with Ahmadinejad's shrewd denials is that it will reach the looney left of our country and they will feel obliged to believe this monster.

Also notable was that Bollinger obviously felt the heat of concerned Americans. He denounced the Iranian President during the intro. Well Mr. Bollinger you didn't appease me.

And let's not forget we did learn from the Iranian President that there are no homosexuals in his country & that we need more research into the notion of the Holocaust.... the master of spin & propaganda.

Free speech is an honor that should be enjoyed by all Americans. We should not allow the heads of state that sponsor terrorism to use that right against us. If in Iran you or I may get stoned for exercising "free speech" and not the good kind of "stoned".....

It is, however, a testament to this great nation of ours that an American institution has the freedom to offer such a controversial, if not morally reprehensible, invitation to this sponsor of terror.

Mr. Bollinger used his right as a leader of a prestigious American institution to showcase a grave oppressor.

Was this invitation worth it?

Ahh the liberal world of academia. Such Hypocrisy. Deny Free speech when it doesn't fit your agenda, champion it to this extent if it's an enemy of America, an America led by Bush that is.

An enemy of my enemy is my friend? What a dangerous sentiment. Be careful Americans. It appears trendy to hate Bush & Israel. We all know how Americans love trends.... but to what extent? Hell at this rate the enemy wouldn't have to sneak through the back door. Some good intentioned, well educated, I don't have to mention how he votes-I'm sure you can guess, American will roll out the red carpet for him.......

God Bless America.

Muslims Against Sharia condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the decision of Columbia University to provide a speaking venue for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Apparently letting Akbar Rafsanjani speak at the National Cathedral was not the height of American Dhimmitude, because providing a venue for the world's foremost anti-Semite, whose proclaimed goal is the destruction of the USA and Israel, definitely takes the cake. What is surprising is that we don't hear any complaints from Columbia alumni who should be ashamed of their silence.

Columbia University claims they are America’s best and brightest?

Did you see the way they applauded Ahmadenijad?

They are just a bunch of filthy Little Eichmanns.

It is too bad that Cho Seung-hui didn’t go to Columbia University!
