Plug him and plant him. Show that in Iran. They’ll understand.
yep.sure. wiseass remarks. Does a foreign visitor have the right to enter a classroom and be asked questions by students or do law profs decide who can and can not speak?
ho hum for the right to be wrong right
I don’t think the question here is whether Glenn Reynolds would “allow” Ahmadinejad to exercise his freedom of speech. Although it might be helpful to note that speech isn’t a freedom recognized by Ahmadinejad or his government.
Rather, the question is the wisdom of an storied institution like Columbia lending its name and prestige to a man who has repeatedly threatened a nuclear Holocaust, and whose government murders homosexuals for the crime of being gay.
In fact, Columbia’s dean recently stated that he’d invite Hitler to speak — which in my mind renders moot the idea of any wisdom coming out of Columbia.
How can you criticize Time’s 1938 Man of the Year? Hitler was then nominated for the 1939 Nobel Peace Prize.
