It is nothing new to conservatives that Columbia University and other liberal institutions censor anyone that strays from the strict socialist dogma of the modern Democrat Party.
But CU allowing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak is even worse. From what I have read, the University has decided to lock the press and anyone who may disrupt his speech out. Looks like another opportunity for security to use their stun guns.
Anyone who thinks that Universities and liberals are about diversity and open mindedness, must be... well a liberal.
IMO he should suddenly and mysteriously get deathly ill or disappear just as he lands on American soil.
More foolishness from a neocon. The head of Columbia introduced Ahmadinejad as a "petty and cruel dictator" Ahmadinejad was heckled during his speech and asked defend his stand on just about everything he and his crowd stand for. So unlike a neocon event. Every defence of his actions he gave was greeted with more heckling. It apppears that there were no restrictions on what was said by the crowd, the press was allowed in and the only security was crowd control So the facts don't seem to line up with what neocons (Again not conservatives, neocons. they are very different things) say would happen. Of course your whole arguement falls apart now. What annoys neocons the most is that they want to limit everyones rights but theirs and just about everyone is ignoring them.
To quote General Douglas MacArthur
"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear -- kept us ina continuous stampede of patriotic
fervor -- with the cry of grave national emergency... Always there has been some terrible evil to
gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the
exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem
never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."
