Of Course They'd Invite Hitler!

When he attends next week's opening session of the United Nations, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be going uptown to speak at Columbia University. Despite criticism, that bastion of academic freedom and free speech will stand tall against the gathering shadows of censorship:

But we never doubted that our redoubtable academic elites would welcome a murderous anti-Semitic dictator to campus. It's economists and former cabinet officials who threaten the fabric of our society:
I was appalled that someone articulating that point of view would be invited . . . . This is a symbolic invitation and a symbolic measure that I believe sends the wrong message about the University . . . and its cultural principles.
That's a UC Davis professor, and she's talking about Larry Summers, who famously wondered if it wasn't possible, just barely conceivable, that girls are different from boys - which musing caused strong women to swoon.

So here's the lesson: It's OK to nuke the Jews, but it's forbidden to dis the girls. Got it?
