Iranian Despot to Speak at Columbia University

Why, of course. The kids there probably consider him a reasonable voice against the “Jewish lobby”, Bush’s “fascist state”, and the “wars we’re fighting for the Zionists”.

Also today, the president of Columbia University, Lee C. Bollinger, announced that Mr. Ahmadinejad would speak at the university on Monday.

Last year he withdrew an invitation for the Iranian despot to speak:

In September 2006, the dean of Columbia University’s school of international and public affairs invited Mr. Ahmadinejad to speak at the school’s World Leaders Forum, but the university’s president, Mr. Bollinger, withdrew the invitation, saying he was not certain that an appearance by Mr. Ahmadinejad would “reflect the academic values” of the event.

Apparently having a man that denies the Holocaust, calls for the extermination of Jews, sends weapons to Iraq to kill our troops, funds terrorist groups and is considered a state sponsor of terror, fits this year’s event.

However, if fellow American citizens call for our immigration laws to actually be enforced, they’re driven off of the stage.
