Wounded Iraq vet heckled at Columbia UniversityRead the whole sad, sickening story here.
Apparently civility and free speech only apply to one side at Columbia University – the anti-military side. Woe be unto you if you have the temerity to stand up in an open forum as a member of the Columbia University community and voice an opinion in opposition to that which is prevalent there.The comment section is worth reading. As one commenter points out, they gave a polite reception to Iranian president and genocidal maniac, Mahmoud Ahmadinajad.
A wounded Iraq war veteran found that out recently as he stood up – something he had to learn to do again after his wounds – and gave what the NY Post describes as an “impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.” It occurred during the second of three meetings the University has scheduled to talk about ROTC and the possibility of bringing it back on campus.
My greatest hope after reading about these brain-dead, elitist a**holes, is that I raised my own children with a functioning moral compass and the ability to differentiate between right and wrong, both on a personal and on a societal level.
