There are no gays in Iran – Ahmadinejad speaks in my America.


Please read the three zinging opening remarks made by Columbia University President Lee Bollinger, before allowing his guest to take the lectern.
“You are either brazenly provocative or astonishingly uneducated.”
“Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator”
“Today, I feel all the weight of the modern civilized world yearning to express the revulsion at what you stand for.”
No, Bush was not speaking at Columbia yesterday, these remarks were the introduction for President Ahmadinejad of Iran. Let me preface this by saying that President Ahmadinejad appears to me to be a sociopath, a liar, unfit for office of any presidency, and absolutely frightening. Having said this, he was more poised, verbal, and interesting in his brief stage drama then Bush has been in seven years. I don’t know who came out of this debacle appearing worse, Lee Bollinger or President Ahmadinejad. Bollinger was not only over the top in his hammering of Ahmadinejad but also mistaken. He accused of Ahmadinejad of being a dictator. A cursory check up on Iranian politics might enlighten Bollinger to this near impossibility.
Watch the introduction below.

Ahmadinejad took advantage of the inhospitable words. Below is what he said, notice the students applause at the end.

The rest of his talk was a fascinating rambling sometimes coherent, sometimes laughable, sometimes insane. Do yourself a favor and watch it or read the transcript.

“As you know, we don’t have relationships with Iran. I mean, that’s — ever since the late ’70s, we have no contacts with them, and we’ve totally sanctioned them. In other words, there’s no sanctions — you can’t — we’re out of sanctions.”- Bush discussing his policy with Iran.
