You';re absolutely right, it was bullshit. If you don't agree with him that's one thing. But it's not right to invite him to speak at your school and then belittle him because you cave in to the talking heads of our media.
Personally, I think Ahmadinejad is, at best, insane and, at worst, a charismatic psycho. But by Columbia inviting him to speak at the school, we are showcasing what makes America great (a nice change of pace from the last 7 years). In Iran dissension is not allowed, it is quelled, often brutally and bloodily. But here, we allow and often welcome other views (W and the red states not withstanding).
If the head of Columbia really felt that strongly, he should not have invited him in the first place, or rescinded the invitation.

Without a doubt the current administration doesn't like, nor want "anti-war" talk. However, if I'm not mistaken it has been the "Left" that has saddled us with "political correctness".

PC is just a new term for an old phenomenon which is exclusively neither left nor right, nor necessarily related to politics:

    Person A makes a remark or action concerning Group B, or perhaps simply ignores Group B. Some member of Group B takes offense, cries fowl, and demands more sensitive treatment from Person A.
Happens in both directions.

Even though you're a leftist commie, I recognize your desire to repaint the barn wall. Very Happy
