Lee Bollinger has demonstrated why we can't trust liberals to defend the West. Bollinger gave a half way decent speech attacking Ahmadinejad in a reasonably polite way, but having invited the dictator in the first place managed to set himself up as the ungracious host. This paved the way for a speech which didn't answer any of the questions Bollinger had put to him, began with a sermon against hate (this by a preacher of Hitlerian hate), and then a lecture in behalf of free speech, tolerance and scientific knowledge, and then in reference to the Holocaust, a reasonable sounding comment that one shouldn't close the books on any historical question.
Ahmadinejad also managed to use the platform Columbia recklessly provided him to drum up more hate against the Jews and a thinly veiled call for the destruction of the Jewish state. Ahmadinejad obviously carried a significant section of this Ivy League audience with him having been allowed by Bollinger to assume the role of the persecuted victim of Americans and Jews.
He made one mistake, in answer to a question about the execution of homosexuals. Instead of simply lying and pretending to be a better liberal than his hosts (which was the tenor of most of his speech) he said "We don't have homosexuals in our country." This brought the only boos of the afternoon.
Ahmadinejad began his speech with a prayer for the return of the 12th Imam. Those paying attention to such arcane details will know that the the return of the 12th Imam is the centerpiece of Ahmadinejad's most passionate beliefs. The return is -- in Ahmadinejad's view -- imminent and is the signal for Armageddon and the Final Judgement, a historical moment when Israel and America will be wiped from the face of the earth, and which can be abetted (again in his view) by initiating nuclear war with both.
America should NEVER forget.

The students and faculty gave this cruel, petty dictator a standing ovation at the end of his diatribe. The Left has strange bedfellows.
The Homosexual Agenda is alive and well in the Good Ole USofA!
when the jihadists have obtained the leverage they need from the liberals to establish sharia law, it will be throat-slitting time
He was PC (about hating America, Israel, and Jews) until he made the gay crack. If he spoke warmly about gay people, the moonbats would be ready to run him for President of the US.
The Left would give Hitler a standing ovation if he were alive today. They never met an anti-American dictator they didn’t like. Any enemy of America is a friend of theirs.
Columbia U. is playing out of their league and are patsies.
(David Horowitz says we can’t trust liberals to defend the West)...
So sadly true. They will, and are, betraying the US at every turn.
They suffer from death camp envy, and will not be satisfied until they and every other american, are being thrown into ovens. And they will not stop aiding and abetting our enemies until their children are once again being used for medical experiments. Or, they are the ones performing the expiriments.
Democrats allways want to be either slaves or slave masters. Like how they created and maintained New Orleans through decades of Democrat control...and then blame Republicans when their corrupt and evil monopoly fractures and gets exposed.
This is Columbia’s M.O. They’ve previously invited such illuminaries of monstrous evil as Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and Pol Pot. Just imagine how much justice could’ve been achieved if every time they appeared, one (or more) heroes stood up and did the right thing.
Unfortunately, we will - - just as we've forgotten 9/11.
The President of Columbia asks terrorists and Hitler, if he was alive, to speak, but Summers had to leave Harvard for asking IF males and females may have different levels of expertise in different tasks.
Summers gets forced out of Harvard by leftists and feminists.
Leftists and feminists were either silent or applauding Aminneedofjihad. And his country stones young women to death for having sex.
Those same leftists and feminists support “safe sex” for young people here.
They are silent.
And the idiots lapped it up like dogs eating their own puke.
Yup, a full page ad in the NYT’s blasting General Betrayus and a standing ovation at the end of Amadenajab’s vile speach. Something wrong with this picture for sure.
I see Mr. Horowitz is a Jew and standing up for the Jewish community against this murderer little Hitler. But what I don't understand is WHERE are the Spielberg's and the rest of HELLywood Jewish crowd.. where is Barbara on this, she's Jewish and if this NUT had his way he would slit here throat from ear to ear...WHERE are they?!! Hypocrites!
