Free speech has a new champion and I have a new hero 

His name is Lars Viks. "Officials" at Uppsala University, however, are pusillanimous weenies who do not deserve to so much as cut the freaking grass at that previously great university.

I get the point, but "pusillanimous weenies?" My, my we're getting nasty as we push 50, aren't we.It might be time to switch to decaffeinated, or some Rush Limbaugh-grade oxy to calm the stridency.
This cartoonist might just as easily aim a poison pen at your icons, and then what? That's the succulent irony of free speech.

I take offense on behalf of baby animals everywhere! Most kittens I know of would have FAR more gumption than to let a mob shut down a controversial lecture. When dealing with someone who has had death threats against him, shouldn't you kind of be prepared for trouble?

There are indeed unbelievable events occuring at some universities. UCSD, as an example, is one where a student admitted to David Horowitz that she hopes all of the worlds Jews will gather together in Israel so as to make their killing more convenient. I kid you not. (via the Corner)

A friend just e-mailed me the link to that Horowitz video. Chilling.

This is diversity???

Re: the Horowitz video - is it possible the student was confused by the question? Wow. I mean, WOW. It's one thing to want to wipe away the State of Israel, and all the Jews and Arabs who live there, but it seems to me that it is even a degree more heinous (if that's possible) to advocate the killing of all Jews worldwide. That comes close to testing the limits of protected speech.

You want to prevent her from speaking? What would that accomplish? You may as well hear what evil there is in these schools instead of pretending it isn't being said or thought.

"My, my we're getting nasty as we push 50, aren't we."

This from the tribune whose most devastating rhetorical device is to call his opponents "douchebags". Chrissy's hypocrisy is as high as his intelligence is low.

Who or what group would react to the pen with the sword? Who other than the Moslems would riot, burn and murder over a cartoon?

CC, I'd be interested if you have any views on the actual topic.
