Getting Your Money’s Worth At Columbia


Getting Your Money’s Worth At Columbia: If the anti-war crowd somehow got their wish and Saddam Hussein were to survive and remain in control of Iraq, then I think a certain assistant professor of anthropology at Columbia University has a tenured professorship waiting for him at Baghdad University…

“A Columbia University professor told an anti-war gathering that he would like to see “a million Mogadishus” – referring to the 1993 ambush in Somalia that killed 18 American servicemen.

At Wednesday night’s “teach-in” on the Columbia campus, (assistant professor of anthropology) Nicholas De Genova also called for the defeat of U.S. forces in Iraq and said, “The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military.” And he asserted that Americans who call themselves “patriots” are white supremacists.

De Genova’s comments about defeating the United States in Iraq were cheered by the crowd of 3,000, Newsday reported. But his mention of the Somali ambush – “I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus” – was largely met with silence.”

Wouldn’t you love to be paying $58,405 so your kid could go to Columbia and have people like this filling his head up with anti-American propaganda?
