As most of us know, the President of Iran is visiting the U.S.. He will speak at Columbia University today, which sparks much controversy. Personal opinion... This is disgusting, and disgraceful, how ever, it's all a part of free speech and freedom of expression. Although I am disgusted by this, I am strangely attracted. I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall in that auditorium. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a leader that executes homosexuals, kills journalists, slaps down anyone in his own country for speaking freely, a leader that calls the holocaust a myth. Some have to question Columbia University's motives. The founder of the minuteman project was denied to speak, but instead, Columbia U. invited a tyrant. The dean of Columbia U states that Mahmoud will be faced with powerful questions by students and staff. Questions that could possibly hold him accountable to his tyranny. It was also stated that Columbia U would invite Hitler to speak as well... What in the world?!?! http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,297748,00.html Even more disgusting is the request of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit Ground Zero. Why would someone who nurses terrorism want to visit our Ground Zero? In my mind that is nothing more than a slap in the face of our nation, not to mention the faces of everyone associated with the Trade Center attacks. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,297384,00.html All in all.. I think this is just outrageous, but it falls under the First Amendment where free speech, and free expression is protected. If we denied the Iranian President the right to speak here, we would be no better than he is. I do believe that it was poor valuer to reject the founder of the minuteman project, but instead, invite someone who welcomes mayhem. Just makes you step back and wonder... Why? Real funny thing here is... The today show did a longer spot on Britney Spear's divorce, than the Iranian President's visit to New York. Just goes to show you that we are a nation based on vanity.
