Reader comment on item: Columbia University vs. America

Submitted by Duck (United States), Apr 9, 2003 at 20:06

To the President of Columbia University:

I was thinking about your "PR" response to my message about Prof. DeGenova this morning on my way to work, and it occurred to me that since Columbia University is such a hot bed of free speech, you will equally welcome the KKK and white supremist groups to hold "teach-ins" at your institution.

Right? RIGHT?

Good. You certainly established that fact, so I will see what I can do to find the headquarters of the KKK. And I understand there is a large contingent of white supremists in west Texas. I don't know if I'll be able to find them, but trust me, I'll try. I intend to encourage them to descend on your campus en masse. I expect them to be shown the same consideration, accommodation, and support you've shown Professor DeGenova.

With your steadfast elitist, politically-correct approach to "education," I trust you will put equal energy into defending equal rights. The KKK and white supremists should have equal treatment and be encouraged to exercise their right of free speech. Right? RIGHT?
