  • Expose' of Anti-Americansm in Academia Now Published

    My book, Intellectual Assault: Academic Anti-Americanism and the Distortion of 9/11, is now available for purchase. The book uses a massive quantity of quotes by professors and academic administrators about 9/11 in the aftermath of that event to examine the mentality of those who control higher education in this country. The result, I'm sad to say, is an unremitting indictment of the United States as the villain who precipitated the terrorist attacks and therefore got what it deserved. For those who were unaware of the depths of anti-Americanism in academia, this book will serve as an alarming wake-up call. For...

    On the Web site of an unofficial alumni organization at the University of California, Los Angeles, there are profiles "exposing" the university's "most radical professors" who "actively proselytize their extreme views in the classroom." These professors are described as "brainless" and are berated for never having left the "fantasy world of college." [snip] There are other disturbing examples today and throughout history. In Colorado and Indiana, as a result of widely publicized student allegations of left-wing bias in the classroom, several professors have received hate mail and at least one received a death threat. The number of organizations across America...

    Last week, John Walker Lindh  petitioned the president to commute his 20-year sentence for fighting with the Taliban, imposed in 2002.  It’s a shame that this pampered child of Marin County is sitting in a cell for something as trivial as treason. Under a plea bargain, Walker Lindh (AKA: Abdul Hamid, AKA: Sulayman Al-Lindh) pleaded guilty to supplying services to the Taliban regime and carrying explosives for  Afghanistan’s former rulers.Which is like to saying that Benedict Arnold supplied services to George III. Johnny Jihad trained in an al-Qaeda camp – where he learned to fire an AK-47 and rubbed elbows...

    Neo-Communism By David Horowitz FrontPageMagazine.com | April 22, 2003 Wars are a test of citizens’ loyalty, commitment and political understanding; in providing this test the end of a war can be as illuminating as its beginning. It was a striking fact of the “anti-war” demonstrations against Operation Iraqi Freedom that the left was able to mobilize more protesters in three months – from the UN deadline of November 7 to the launch of the war in March – than the new left was able to mobilize in the first six years of the war in Vietnam. (The first of these...

    IF YOU CALL Columbia University's main switch- board and ask for Nicholas De Genova,you will not be connected to his office. Instead,you will hear a recording of a statement by the university's president, Lee C. Bollinger, saying he is "appalled" by the anthropology professor's "outrageous comments." When a reporter calls back and says he wants to speak to the professor rather than lodge a complaint, the operator replies, "So you're not going to call me a bastard or a whore?" "No. Have other people called you that?" "Oh, yeah," she says. "They need to understand that he's the one who...

    At an invitation-only alumni reception in Washington, DC, yesterday, Columbia University President Lee Bollinger defended his refusal to fire Nicholas deGenova, the controversial professor who called for a "million Mogadishus," while admitting the public outcry, including 15,000 emails, was hurting Columbia's reputation. In response to an angry alumnus' question about the controversy and its negative impact on Columbia's reputation and alumni donations, Bollinger said that deGenova's remarks, which occured during a faculty-organized "teach-in" and included a claim that "U.S. patriotism is inseparable from imperial warfare and white supremacy," were "reprehensible," but claimed they were protected by the First Amendment. Bollinger...

    Jewish World Review ^ | April 9, 2003 | Sam Schulman
    The left -- together with its U.S. liberal allies -- is now the chief defender of fascism and tyranny in the world. In fact, the left has adopted as its chief mission the protection of tyranny where it exists, and the fight to extend it wherever possible. And now that it is losing the Dear Leader, Saddam, it will turn its sights on Israel - the only democracy in a sea of tyranny. Professor Eric Foner, of Columbia University, stood on the same stage as the Professor Nicholas DeGenova, who memorably celebrated the genocidal warlords of Somalia, to denounce the...

    It's a good thing that Gen. Tommy Franks and not the Republicans in Congress are running the war effort in Iraq. Left to the Republican leadership in Congress, Saddam Hussein would now be occupying the Oval Office, and "Chemical Ali" planning the 2004 Republican Party convention. I'm glad the spirit in the Grand Old Party isn't entirely dead. I just wish the flesh was a bit more willing, and the mind more fully engaged in the battle. If so, perhaps we could mount a more effective charge and capture a hill or two in the cultural battles facing America here...

    Columbia University Professor Nicholas De Genova makes me sick. He personifies the ideal of the extremist. But that in itself isn’t what makes me ill. Although I disagree with him on his stance regarding the military action in Iraq I still would fight for his right to espouse his poisonous thoughts, which as it would seem, is a hell of a lot more than he would do for me. No, the reason this man makes me nauseous is because he is calling for the slaughter of those in our armed forces. If this isn’t teetering on the borderline of treason...

    Free Speech is Not a Monopoly of the Antiwar Left By Erika Holzer FrontPageMagazine.com | April 3, 2003 Starting with the first tense days of the war against Iraq, I made it a point to watch American servicemen being interviewed on cable television. Every one of them, when asked why they were eager to fight in Iraq, in essence gave this unhesitating reply: "First, to destroy a murderous regime before it acquires the capability to attack our country and the rest of the free world with weapons of mass destruction." [It’s called "self-defense."] "Second, to liberate the people of Iraq...

De Genova claimed death threats forced him to skip his 2:40 p.m. Latino History course at the university's Hamilton Hall - the first lecture he had scheduled since the March 26 anti-war "teach in" in which he referred to the 1993 "Black Hawk Down" incident in which 18 GIs were slain.

At an "anti-war" teach-in at Columbia last week, Anthropology professor Nicholas De Genova told 3,000 students and faculty, "Peace is not patriotic. Peace is subversive, because peace anticipates a very different world than the one in which we live--a world where the U.S. would have no place."De Genova continued: "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military.
