What Were They Thinking?

Reader comment on item: Harvard Loves Jihad

Submitted by Steven Hess (United States), Jun 11, 2002 at 10:17

I have come to expect nothing better from Harvard and you really have to wonder why that institution continues to enjoy exalted status. But what really boggles my mind is the question of what were 32,000 listeners in the audience thinking? Did not a few at least rise and scream in protest? Would not a patriot have walked out in protest?....I sure would have. Shame on those "polite" Brahmans who considered themselves too classy, too sophisticated, too broadminded, too "fair" and too liberal to have hooted this speaker off the stage.
