First off, Columbia University is being threatened with a cut in state funds for allowing Ahmadinejad to speak — which is great. State legislatures should be using the power of the purse to threaten universities on a regular basis, all across the country.
You want to bring in an anti-American, terrorist supporting, holocaust denying, anti-Semite who’s planning a new Holocaust to speak? Fine, you can have less money. You want to keep on radical professors who think the people who died on 9/11 are “Little Eichmans?” Fine, you can have less money. You want to discriminate against conservatives across campus and in your hiring process? Fine, you can have less money.
That’s something that these universities understand and will react to — an impact on their bottom line.
Additionally, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is apparently still planning to speak at Ground Zero — which is a disgrace and the fault of two men: George Bush and Michael Bloomberg. Either one of them has the authority to prevent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from visiting the site by simply saying, “No, I won’t allow you to go,” but neither one has the guts to do it.
Every week or two, the military tells people that Iran is responsible for the deaths of more of our soldiers in Iraq and a man who is undoubtedly involved in that is going to Ground Zero, to mock the deaths of the Americans who died there with his presence, and George Bush is helping him to do that? Bush should be ashamed of himself.
Same goes for Bloomberg. I’m not the biggest fan of Rudy Giuliani and I’ve criticized him a lot, but I can tell you one thing: if he were mayor of New York instead of Michael Bloomberg, you could bet your bottom dollar that Ahmadinejad wouldn’t be allowed anywhere near Ground Zero. Bloomberg and more surprisingly, George Bush, don’t appear to have enough steel in their spines to do the same — which is too bad.
