The New Democrat

Ann Coulter certainly nailed it this week in her column. The little Muslim Smurf Ahmadinejad sounded more like the Democrats than the Democrats themselves. Here's how Ann puts it:

Democrats should run Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for president. He's more coherent than Dennis Kucinich, he dresses like their base, he's more macho than John Edwards, and he's willing to show up at a forum where he might get one hostile question -- unlike the current Democratic candidates for president who won't debate on Fox News Channel. He's not married to an impeached president, and the name "Mahmoud Ahmadinejad" is surely no more frightening than "B. Hussein Obama."

The sad thing is, Ahmadinejad would probably get a respectable number of votes from the loons in the Democrat base. All you have to do is take a trip over to the DailyKos, Democratic Underground, or Huffington Post to see that he has his fans with those nutjobs. They have a psychotic hatred of President Bush in common with him, so he's A-OK in their book.

Rush has done a side-by-side comparison of some of Ahmadinejad's comments, and those of the Democrat leadership. Check it out. It honestly is chilling. They are saying the same things! WHY don't more people notice that? I'm hoping that come election day, we will find out that the American people HAVE been paying attention, and do not want a wimpy, whiney, global-warming-is-scarier-than-terrorism Democrat in charge of our national security.

Back to Ann:

Except Columbia doesn't have that tradition. This is worse than saying "the dog ate my homework." It's like saying "the dog ate my homework" when you're Michael Vick and everyone knows you've killed your dog. Columbia's "tradition" is to shut down any speakers who fall outside the teeny, tiny seditious perspective of its professors. When Minutemen leader Jim Gilchrist and his black colleague Marvin Stewart were invited by the College Republicans to speak at Columbia last year, the tolerant, free-speech-loving Columbia students violently attacked them, shutting down the speech. Imbued with Bollinger's commitment to free speech, Columbia junior Ryan Fukumori said of the Minutemen: "They have no right to be able to speak here."

I was as shocked as everyone else at Bollinger's scathing introduction of Ahmadinejad. It tells me, though, that either a) he was scared of losing funding from sensible people outraged that the little dictator was invited in the first place, or b) he and his brethren in liberal academia DO realize the threat that terrorism poses, and just lie about it to suit their purposes. It certainly has nothing to do with "free speech," which also carries responsibility, something that liberals have very little of.

At Ahmadinejad's speech, every vicious anti-Western civilization remark was cheered wildly. It was like watching an episode of HBO'S Real Time With Bill Maher.

Ahmadinejad complained that the U.S. and a few other "monopolistic powers, selfish powers" were trying to deny Iranians their "right" to develop nukes.

Wild applause.

Ahmadinejad repeatedly refused to answer whether he seeks the destruction of the state of Israel.

Wild applause.

He accused the U.S. of supporting terrorism.

Wild applause.

Only when Ahmadinejad failed to endorse sodomy did he receive the single incident of booing throughout his speech.

Says a lot about the students at Columbia, doesn't it, and what they're being taught. I wouldn't send my dog there.
