The braindead "liberal" intelligentsia and Adolf Ahmadejihad

I don't know how best to begin to express my disgust at Columbia University and its perversion of the "spirit of free and open exchange of ideas". I can't fathom how it is that anyone who understands what free and open exchange of ideas actually means, would even attend this murderous shit stain's lecture.

I was talking yesterday with someone who told me that Europe's "open and tolerant" attitudes are beginning to undermine themselves, because it meant in actual terms an open and smiling invitation for Muslims who would impose sharia to enter their lands.

Adolf Ahmadejihad's address has nothing to do with the mouthing of the catchphrase "free and open inquiry" but what that phrase actually means in practice, and how this invitation betrayed those very ideals. The message sent is all too loud and clear to the non-brain-dead: Go and suppress freedoms with deadly violence, and you, too, can be invited to give a free and open airing of your ideas.

I can't really say with any surety that the "liberals" that invited him are knowingly complicit in evil; giving them the benefit of the doubt, I'll just assume that they're idiots. Typical academic rationalistic floaters who don't know how to tie down their abstractions and principles to actual practice. If this incident doesn't reveal in the plainest terms the rationalistic failures of the academic world, I don't know what can.
