Skip to comments.The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice
Posted on 04/17/2014 6:20:09 PM PDT by prairiebreeze
Rices recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed
When the University of Minnesota invited her to give a lecture Thursday as part of a series marking the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, the herd of independent minds that is the schools faculty roused itself.
Roughly 200 of them demanded that the invitation be revoked, mostly for her association with George W. Bushs interrogation and detention policies, but also because she is unfit to be part of a civil-rights lecture series

Give it time....they'll cave.
Rice is an intelligent woman with her own opinions which are not in lock step with the Marxists in the administration and their supporters. From what I can tell, she isn’t a crony capitalist with the doctrinaire opinions they have.
Is this headline a play on words?
They’ve sent the hounds after one that got off the liberal plantation.
Didn’t Rice grow up in segregated Birmingham?
I’d say she’s more qualified than most of the brats who attend UofM.
eminently more qualified
The leftist Star Tribune Editorial today was “Welcome Dr. Rice”.It was fine.
Even the Trib was embarrassed by the leftist cranks agitating against her in recent weeks.
Id venture to say 99% cant hold water to her intellectually at that university. Liberals loathe those success stories that fall outside their agenda. Self made hard working woman breaks the chain of childhood poverty to become one of the most successful highly achieved woman of superior intellect and confidence. The liberals foam at the mouth over this.
For the Strib to be chagrined is sayin’ something....
Well, maybe their next spirit of free expression could be a big book burning party like their Nazi ancestors used to have.
I have no doubt that these 'professors' can mobilize their 'students' in a similar fashion.
And this adds to the discussion...how?
Its exactly what the liberals today are doing to anyone who tries to escape their plantation.
Any faculty who participated in this should be continually hounded with investigations, write-ups, and tenure reviews until they finally have strokes and die, or resign. Thanks prairiebreeze. Additional topic, all. There’s plenty of snarkiness in this piece such that it tiptoes up to the edge of being a partisan shill hit piece.
The usual band of left-wing racists.
The same things that make her less than welcome on the right; she'll never be a lockstepper. Admirable and dangerous!
I understand that completely!
Mind-numbed conformity can take a hike.
Jesus Christ: You cant impeach Him and He aint going to resign.
