Ahmadinejad Is In, ROTC Is Out

by Dinesh D'Souza - September 23rd, 2007 -

What is the problem with ROTC as far as Columbia University is concerned? Apparently Bollinger and other left-wingers on the faculty can't stand the U.S. military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy concerning homosexuals. Yet this policy, devised and introduced by the Clinton administration, respects the privacy of homosexual soldiers on the condition that they aren't open or flagrant about being gay. The objective of the policy is to maintain morale in the barracks.

Even if you disagree with the military, Bollinger himself says that Columbia is open to allowing ideas that are "offensive and even odious." This is the whole point of tolerance. Tolerance means, “I disagree strongly, but I will put up with you.” If I agreed with what you have to say then there is no question of tolerance. Whatever Bollinger’s ideological disagreement with ROTC, surely students are capable of hearing his concerns and then making up their own minds about whether to enroll.

Meanwhile, Iran's policies toward homosexuals are--shall we say--somewhat more stringent than those of the U.S. military.

Actual facts are never allowed to get in the way of the liberal-socialists who oppose America. As long as the Islamofascists are in favor of socialism, and they are, American liberals will be much more supportive of the Islamofascists than they ever will be of America. Columbia University is a perfect example. Their position on tolerance of homosexuality, condemning "don't ask - don't tell" (created by Clinton) of the American military but ignoring the rampant brutality of the Islamofascists, is a perfrect example of their hypocrisy.

Ahmadinejad, with his proclomations that the Holocaust never happened, will be right at home among the liberals on this campus.
