Now guess who wants to get all those liberals with their political bias out of the universities? ... You could change the names and this would sound like a press release from Horowitz or ACTA.Only if you believe the following:
- That there's no difference between asking for intellectual diversity in a classroom and asking for conformity to radical Islam. Let's try imagining a professor in Iran lecturing that Haditha was a Palestinian hoax, for instance.
- That a liberal professor in Iran would also be using his classroom to teach that 9/11 is a government plot, or would, say, invite Michael Savage to lecture in an Iranian classroom.
- That Pat Robertson would be invited to lecture in Iran to mark the anniversary of Iraqi gas attacks on Iranian soldiers in the 1980s. (At least the local peace studies people waited a week before planting their wet kiss.)
Might have been better to be Crooked Timber and never posted on the issue, Tim. Or just been snarky like Mr. Accent. Mr. Blumenthal was not so lucky. But I don't see any reason to take them, or you, seriously.
