Columbia University Offers Soapbox to Ahmadinejad

Iran's head terrorist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been offered a soapbox by Columbia University, where his views on the evils of the Great Satan are sure to be much appreciated when he speaks there on Monday.

Most Columbia students had not even been born when Ahmadinejad and friends stormed the US embassy in Tehran — an act of war — and held Americans hostage for 444 days, as our useless President Jimmy Carter wobbled and wavered with his thumb up his butt. Via Anti-Mullah, here's Ahmadinejad then and now:


Another shot of Mad Mahmoud from the old embassy days:


Ahmadinejad's more recent exploits include developing nuclear weapons, with which he has promised to obliterate Israel, and waging a terrorist war against our troops in Iraq.

John McCain states the obvious:

A man who is directing the maiming and killing of American troops should not be given an invitation to speak at an American university.

Columbia's president Lee Bollinger will grant Ahmadinejad the honor of personally introducing him. Bollinger claims that he will confront Ahmadinejad with "sharp challenges." Obviously, the veteran terrorist is more than willing to face this moonbat's soggy challenges in exchange for the validation the entire farce will stamp upon his views, which include Holocaust denial.

Columbia doesn't let just anyone on its campus. For example, ROTC is not allowed. Righteous educrats including Bollinger don't want any grads defending the Great Satan by becoming officers in the US military.

The Minutemen also defend America by monitoring our borders. Columbia authorities were open-minded enough to allow Minutemen representatives to speak on campus — but the students weren't. Thuggish campus liberals actually stormed the stage, preventing the Minutemen from having their say.

Ahmadinejad's reception will be far warmer, given that he's an evil maniac sworn to America's destruction. Maybe Columbia will grant him an honorary degree in "Peace Studies."

While he's there, Mad Mahmoud might stop in and visit Columbia assistant professor Nicholas De Genova, who proclaimed that he wishes America would suffer "a million Mogadishus" in Iraq.

It's a good thing Osama bin Laden can't speak at Columbia. He would probably end up with Bollinger's job.

But then, why shouldn't bin Laden appear at Columbia? Either we are fighting back against Islamic terrorists or we aren't. If we are, why is Ahmadinejad still alive?

At least we'll be spared (barely) the spectacle of Ahmadinejad exploiting Ground Zero for a photo op.

On tips from Wiggins, Byron, and Panday.

The students won't be allowed to rush the stage when this guy is there even if they wanted too. Wreck the Minutemens program, that's ok, but Achmeds? no way...we must be respectful. If only Tazer Bro Andrew Meyer put on his show at this event...that would fun. Of course the ol' Tazer this time would be firing real bullets.

It's at times like this that the deep fissure in our nation cannot be swept under the rug. There are powerful interests in this country that seek every opportunity to aid and abet our enemies. And perhaps equally dismal, the pro-American side lacks the fortitude necessary to step in and take vigorous action.

Fasten your seat belts.

Oh, the links between progressive academia and fascist regimes are nothing new. The myth that the Nazis were right-wing is now so ingrained that the fact that fascism was a realisation of progressive ideology has been lost. Here's pre-WWII Harvard playing footsie with the Nazis-

Van, thanks for that "Peace Studies" link.

President Tom, as Glenn Beck calls him, just wanted to honor the 9-11 victims? More like he wanted to honor the suicide bombers who destroyed the WTC. What a total asshat.

I'm actually ok with this nicey nice jester from this piece of camel dung. Go ahead and let him visit Ground Zero and lay a wreath, As long as there's our best sniper so many yards away who has ArmaDinnerJacket in his crosshairs. One special caliber bullet which costs less than a happy meal would make his greasy noggin' explode like a Gallagher malleted watermelon. The footage captured would be the biggest thing on YouTube for weeks. We then scrape up the gnarly remains in a Hefty bag, mix in a little pork juice and plop it on the footsteps of the Iranian embassy in NYC along with a bill for HazMat removal. Oh if only real men with big brass ones were in charge and in the Gov't. And because our country lacks brassed balled leaders, I'm sure I'm gonna get a call from the NSA for posting this.

Be of good cheer. Maybe Ahmad-whatever wants to visit Columbia to reconnoiter it for his next terrorist attack.

From today's Wall Street Journal:

Lee Bollinger, Tough Guy
September 21, 2007; Page A14
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has his doubts about whether the Holocaust happened. He thinks the Jewish state should be wiped off the map. His regime funnels sophisticated munitions to Shiite militias in Iraq, who use them to kill American soldiers.

Oh, and by the way, his regime also executes homosexuals for the crime of being themselves. Maybe if Columbia University President Lee Bollinger were aware of the latter fact he would reconsider his invitation to the Iranian president to speak on his campus next Monday.

Mr. Bollinger, notoriously, voted in 2005 not to readmit an ROTC program to Columbia (absent from the university since 1969), ostensibly on the grounds of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding gay service members. Never mind that other upper-tier schools, including Princeton, Dartmouth, Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania all have ROTC programs. Never mind, too, that in 2003 the Columbia student body voted in favor of readmission by a 2-1 margin. In Mr. Bollinger's view, "the university has an obligation, deeply rooted in the core values of an academic institution and in First Amendment principles, to protect its students from improper discrimination and humiliation."

Mr. Bollinger's position might at least be coherent were he not now invoking the same principles to justify his invitation to Mr. Ahmadinejad, whose offenses to gay rights and any other form of human dignity considerably exceed the Pentagon's. After promising that he would introduce the president "with a series of sharp challenges" -- including Iran's "reported support" for international terrorism -- he went on to say that "it is a critical premise of freedom of speech that we do not honor the dishonorable when we open the public forum to their expression."

We're all for free speech and the vigorous exchange of intellectual differences, though we don't see how Mr. Bollinger can be, given his decision to discriminate against young men and women who seek to make careers in the military. We also don't quite see how the right to free speech -- a freedom Mr. Ahmadinejad conspicuously denies his own people -- is tantamount to the right to an illustrious pedestal. Columbia is a selective institution in its choice of students as well as speakers; its choices confer distinction on those whom it selects. Were it otherwise, Mr. Ahmadinejad would surely have better uses for his time.

We will say this for Mr. Bollinger: The tough-guy act he promises for Monday's introduction will be something to watch. This time the irrepressible Mr. Ahmadinejad, we're sure, will bow his head in awe.

This puffed-up runt is singularly responsible for the deaths of 100's of our service men and women in Iraq. If he takes one step out U.N. jurisdiction, he should be arrested on the spot as a war criminal and sent to Guantanamo with the rest of the terrorists.

Arrest him as a terrorist and kidnapper. Send him to Gitmo.

"Bollinger claims that he will confront Ahmadinejad with 'sharp challenges.'"

Good luck with that Bollinger. I'll give Bollinger a free tip: Ahmadinejad understands English. So while his translator drones on, he has plenty of time to think up clever obfuscations and counter-accusations to what ever "sharp challenge" he's presented with.

This is going to be about as lopsided as the Chamberlain/Hitler negotiations. A feckless wacademic has no chance agaist that guy. This is assuming Bollinger even makes an effort to confront him, which I doubt.

The whole thing is just pathetic.

The US Marines at the Iranian embasy were ordered to "fall back" on that infamous day. I am saddened by the realisation that just ONE volley from their shotguns (They were armed with riotguns and revolvers) would have scattered the "students" and proven that we were not the cowards who had sold out South Viet Nam. If that had happened, we would not be in the current mess, or at least we would have regained our national pride enopugh to have done the job right and kicked Muslim ass without worrying about "offending" anyone.

Someone, PLEASE, explain to me how either the U.S. Marshals service or some other federal law enforcement agency is not going to take him into custody on Monday.

Here we have a fellow who attacked a U.S. Embassy and endangered the lives of U.S. citizens, on sovereign U.S. soil-- at least, the last time I checked embassies are considered sovereign United States territory, just as we honor other nations' embassies here within our own borders. We have photographic evidence and eye witness accounts from the hostages themselves.

Please explain to me why we should not arrest, try, convict, and incarcerate this scumbag under our own legal system? Once he leaves the confines of the U.N. building, airport, and helicopter transport to the U.N. building, it's game on.

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.

More on the subject: Why Does Columbia host Ahmadinejad?
