I love how they start the article with the Dinnerjacket incident. As I remember it the only reason he made that statement was the avalanche of criticism the university received for inviting the little dwarf to speak in the first place. Bollinger is a weakling who perceives the wind to be blowing against Israel.
Quick! Have Jane Harman call Huey Newton’s favorite Stalinist David Horowtiz so he can get some camera time!
Once again the Von Idiot is throwing around terms he does not understand.
You head hurts yet, dummy? It soon will.
Comrade Tat, the gulag girl! Long time no see!
You can’t see, Von Idiot. To see you have to have nerve endings to send a signal to the brain. Which you don’t have.
Тамбовский волк тебе “товарищ”.
Well I don’t consider you a friend either Tat but no need to bring a wolf into play.
Thank you for once again proving that you are neither a Conservative nor American patriot. You support (or are at least the analogue of an anti-anti communist for) leftist deconstructionist who teaches kids to hate America and suppresses opposition, because he hates Isreal and Jews.
You primary loyalty is not America, but hatred of Israel. Don’t ever piss on Washington (and Hamilton its author) by quoting Washington’s Farewell Address.
If you had actually bothered to read what I said RonL, you’ll see that I am taking shots at Jane Harman for corruption and David Horowitz for his Communist background (sorry, he was a red diaper baby; a communist during his time at Columbia and yes he was a buddy of old Huey). If this professor was up for tenure at a state university or one that I had roots with, I would be up in arms. Sadly, I think the man is probably par for the course with the leftists up in Morningside Heights.
Don’t call me your comrade, you filthy antisemite.
“Stalinist” is not the same as “communist”. Both are not interchangeable with “red-diaper baby”. Not all communists are/were stalinists.
I know it’s too hard for you to comprehend. That little amount of brain matter that you were born with is singed by the Jew-hatred.
I wonder why you’re still breathing. Have your liver bothered you lately? It will.
Ah namecalling, all Tat has. I indicted her with quotes from her blog earlier which revealed a stunning ammount of bitterness to people of all faith. It’s sad.
Having said that, I agree that Stalinist and commie are not the same thing and I have no problem saying Horowtiz was both. Read some of Horowitz’s earlier works (before he and Collier did family histories) namely “The Free World Colousus.”
Ron, yeah I usually do not like to call out the promotion policies of private institutions that I have no ties to though clearly you have every right to be on the front lines and I am heartened to see resistance. The one Columbia prof I could not stand during my time up there was Eric the Red, yep Foner himself. Having said that, his daughter, who was a ballerina and had injured herself in one of the most horrid accidents I have ever seen, was one of the nicest kids that I knew in New York .
Geez Tatyana, I think that your response is starting to make some folks at NORAD nervous. (”I dont’ know, it looked like a nuke signature!”)
In this case, has the man done appropriate academic work, then he should get tenure. Sorry, but the fact that he is virulently opposed to another nation’s existence means that he should never be appointed to a national security position–not that he shouldn’t be allowed to continue to teach.
Now, I find it odd that he’s kicked people out of his classroom for voicing a different opinion and didn’t have a house fall on him, but I’ve come to the conclusion that most university leaders are invertebrates. However, the rules are the rules. I cannot say that I would cross the street to put the man out if he was ablaze and I had the world’s last fire extinguisher, but I can say that private universities can’t be in the business of smoking people for their views if they want to remain competetive. (Alumni who may no longer feel the need to donate or sponsors of programs who start yanking the funding on the other hand are a different story.)
You did nothing of the sort, you rotten piece of dung. You are not capable to, ever, with your level of reading comprehension.
Is that blood in your urine? About time.
James: I am not civil to antisemites. He’ll get what’s coming to him. Sooner rather then later.
Tatyana–I like being civil to people who hate me for no good reason. The expression on their faces when they realize that, yes Virginia, they’re just a**holes is priceless.
Um, I thought we were usually saying that to _you_ and Tatyana, Casca!
