    Iranian President Ahmadinejad spoke at Columbia University today. He dodged a number of questions, but when he was asked about the treatment of women and the execution of homosexuals in Iran, he stated that women are treated equally in Iran and regarding homosexuals, "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals like in your country. In Iran, we don't have this phenomenon. I don't know who has told you we have that."

    They have homosexuals...closet ones. If you are going to be executed, who are you going to tell? His approach is similar to closing your eyes, and saying "you don't exist because I can't see you"

    I heard it when he made that statement. I thought it was quite silly.

    Tase Him Bro!

    By Ann Coulter

    EXCERPT

    If a university invites someone to speak, you know the faculty agrees with the speaker. Maybe not the entire faculty. Some Columbia professors probably consider Ahmadinejad too moderate on Israel.

    Columbia president Lee Bollinger claimed the Ahmadinejad invitation is in keeping with "Columbia's long-standing tradition of serving as a major forum for robust debate."

    Except Columbia doesn't have that tradition. This is worse than saying "the dog ate my homework." It's like saying "the dog ate my homework" when you're Michael Vick and everyone knows you've killed your dog.
    Columbia's "tradition" is to shut down any speakers who fall outside the teeny, tiny seditious perspective of its professors.

    When Minutemen leader Jim Gilchrist and his black colleague Marvin Stewart were invited by the College Republicans to speak at Columbia last year, the tolerant, free-speech-loving Columbia students violently attacked them, shutting down the speech.

    Imbued with Bollinger's commitment to free speech, Columbia junior Ryan Fukumori said of the Minutemen: "They have no right to be able to speak here."

    SNIP

    Liberals are never called upon to tolerate anything they don't already adore, such as treason, pornography and heresy. In fact, those will often get you course credit.

    At Ahmadinejad's speech, every vicious anti-Western civilization remark was cheered wildly. It was like watching an episode of HBO'S "Real Time With Bill Maher."

    Ahmadinejad complained that the U.S. and a few other "monopolistic powers, selfish powers" were trying to deny Iranians their "right" to develop nukes.

    Wild applause.

    Ahmadinejad repeatedly refused to answer whether he seeks the destruction of the state of Israel.

    Wild applause.

    He accused the U.S. of supporting terrorism.

    Wild applause.

    Only when Ahmadinejad failed to endorse sodomy did he receive the single incident of booing throughout his speech.

    Our system of higher education is completely broken.

    No doubt everyone has a very good idea what it costs to send a kid to college, multiple thousands every year. How on earth did our higher education ever evolve into something that not only costs a fortune, but our children are being taught by the idiots with mindsets like letting this mad man speak in an open forum.
