Horrific Reactionary Bill Introduced Against Columbia

Republican congressman (CA) and bogus neoconservative presidential candidate Duncan Hunter introduced a bill (HR 3675) into the House (Education and Labor Committee) last week that would actually prohibit any and all grants or contracts with Columbia University. This stems from the University allowing Iranian President Ahmadinejad to come speak last month, where he was treated like a man with horns. They revoked his invitation to speak only a year ago.

Hunter has attacked free speech many times in the past, and this is no different. The neocon thief is not proposing this because of Columbia's ROTC program, or any other garbage he brings up in the bill. That is just a smoke screen he has added in to make it somehow look more legitimate, and to garner a little support, which he won't get. Bush himself didn't even have a problem with Ahmadinejad speaking. Even he is not that stupid. Hunter is complete and utter scum of a politician who repeatedly attacks the First Amendment, and is only doing this because he doesn't like hearing opposing views. Either buy into his propaganda, or lose your free speech.

(1) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the destruction of the State of Israel, a critical ally of the United States.

(2) In January 2007, commander of Multinational Corps-Iraq, Lt. Gen. Ray Odierno stated that the United States had traced back to Iran serial numbers of weapons captured in Iraq, including rocket-propelled grenades, roadside bombs and Katyusha rockets.

(7) Through their invitation, Columbia University provided a public, prestigious platform on United States soil from which on September 24, 2007, President Ahmadinejad spoke and defended his wide-ranging support for terrorist activities.
As you can see, the bill is filled with nothing but lies and scare tactics. Some brainwashed mainstream media sheep are buying into it, but no way this bill goes very far. Duncan Hunter is a domestic enemy, and needs to be booted out of office. In his eyes, controversial speech should only be allowed if it is not in conflict with Israeli views. The more they think that, the worse it does for their "cause." Taking away our sovereignty doesn't help.
