    * Prominent liberal academic Noam Chomsky delivered a speech Friday at St. Olaf College, where he declared that Republicans and Christians are intent on "destroying organized human life."*Chomsky equated support for fossil fuels to saying "let's quickly destroy ourselves, asserted that North Korea is "extending an olive branch" to the US, and insisted that Christians, but not Muslims, want to "destroy the world."Noam Chomsky told students at St. Olaf College on Friday that the Republican Party is engaged in a “unique insanity which is dedicated to destroying organized human life.” This comment and more came in the context of Dr....

    The President at St. Olaf College has informed members of the campus community that a racist note an African-American woman found on her car April 29 was fabricated . President David R. Anderson wrote in an an email that the note was "apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate." The school confirmed the email was sent, as well as an earlier email from Anderson informing the campus community the school had confirmed the note was not a genuine threat. Students said the woman discovered a typed note that read, in part, "I am so glad...

    Stealing through the dark to yank three John McCain yard signs from yards along rural Hwy. 19 in Northfield was wrong but also thrilling and satisfying, a visiting instructor at St. Olaf College recently told readers of a national website. Philip Busse, who teaches a class in media studies at the Northfield school, said he intended the posting to point out the foolish things people do in a highly charged political season. But neither the McCain nor Obama presidential campaign was amused by his exploits, St. Olaf has condemned the prank and the Rice County sheriff is investigating. In his...

    Okay. It's time to play a little pile-on-the-jackass. This smug sonofabitch is a professor who admits to stealing lawn signs. His name is PHIL BUSSE. Self-described Thief and Tresspasser, PHIL BUSSE Highway 19 is a busy six-mile stretch of meandering road that links to main interstate artery in southeast Minnesota. More interestingly, the road connects rural, and often conservative, Minnesota to the liberal college town of Northfield. Rolling through pumpkin patches and apple orchids, the highway is postcard beautiful. This summer and autumn it was speckled with McCain signs, their cobalt blue squarely set against the gold and red of...

    Thanks to a reader for the tip. As you may recall, some months ago in Minneapolis, St. Paul Archdiocese, A Faithful Rebel exposed the proposed lecture of Carol Curoe, an active lesbian who was scheduled to speak at a Catholic parish in Minneapolis. Now, as if the radicals hadn't learned the lesson then, when the Archdiocese had to very wisely intervene and suggest that the venue be moved, now they are aiming at stirring up a little more scandal. They have invited a female Anglican "priestess" and supporter of homosexual unions to lead Catholics in "Centering prayer and inner awakening",...

    A Hindu professor of religion has become the first non-Christian to head St. Olaf College's Religion Department in the college's 133-year history. "It's a great honor," Anantanand Rambachan said of the three-year appointment. "St. Olaf has one of the finest undergraduate religion departments in the country." Rambachan, 55, has taught religion, philosophy and Asian studies at the college in Northfield, Minn., since 1985. He also has been a leading figure in Minnesota's Hindu cultural circles. He grew up on the West Indies island of Trinidad in a devout Hindu family -- both of his grandfathers were Hindu priests. As a...

    Ann Coulter is gone, but now we're having fun. Because listening to her is like hitting your head with a hammer: It's fun when she stops. The conservative pundit on spiked heels came to town last week, and they are still picking up the pieces at two citadels of saintly scholarship in Minnesota -- St. Olaf College in Northfield and the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. I have already written about the miniskirted screechfest at St. Thomas, and I'd be glad to never mention it again. Except for the fact that left behind her, amid the wreckage of...

    Nick Coleman: In the Coultergeist's wake, a teachable moment Ann Coulter is gone, but now we're having fun. Because listening to her is like hitting your head with a hammer: It's fun when she stops. [...] What have we learned, class, about free speech after listening to Coulter call Democrats traitors to the country, threaten to give a Muslim student's name to homeland security and toss insults faster than a kid with a Dixie cup full of fish parts can toss herrings at a seal exhibit? Her herrings are all red. [...] At St. Olaf, Coulter's ugliest comments were returned...

    Ann Coulter spoke at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, and, in terms that should have surprised no one, she flung barbs at liberal icons, calling Sen. Ted Kennedy "a human dirigible" and Sen. Barbara Boxer "learning disabled." Climbing aboard the anti-free speech express, St. Thomas University president Rev. Dennis Dease wrote in the Bulletin, a university newsletter, that "although [Ann Coulter's] presentation may have been meant as an 'act' or a 'shtick' to entertain by provoking those who disagree, such behavior unfortunately contributes to the growing dark side of our culture - a disrespect for persons and their...

    The president of the University of St. Thomas on Monday condemned a speech at the Catholic school last week by conservative author Ann Coulter, saying "such hateful speech vulgarizes our culture and goes against everything the University of St. Thomas stands for." The Rev. Dennis Dease wrote in Bulletin Today, a university newsletter, that "although her presentation may have been meant as an 'act' or a 'shtick' to entertain by provoking those who disagree, such behavior unfortunately contributes to the growing dark side of our culture -- a disrespect for persons and their sincerely held beliefs." Coulter spoke at the...
