Video: Columbia Students Applaud Ahmadinejad’s Reply to Bollinger

• Views: 2,339

Allahpundit has video of Columbia president Lee Bollinger’s speech to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (the one he’s been promising all week as justification for inviting the monster to his school): Video: Bollinger’s rebuke to a “petty and cruel dictator”.

And just for some context, quite a few of the students in the audience were not at all happy with Bollinger’s speech. Here they applaud Ahmadinejad when he blasts Bollinger back:

An email from a Columbia student about the applause for Ahmadinejad:

I was in the audience today, and it is completely unfair to characterize the students in the audience as all having clapped for him. [Actually, I didn’t do that. – ed.] We didn’t. The applause you heard was from about 20-30 students (in the back, nearest to the cameras) out of an audience of over 600. Rest assured that 99.9% of Columbia students are absolutely disgusted by this thug, and we’re glad he made himself look even more insane. It’s important for people to understand how truly nuts he is.

Another email from a Columbia student:

I am a Columbia student, also at the speech. While Ahmadinejad did get some general applause when he began talking about the Israeli-Palestinian issue, and the “right” for Iran to have “peaceful nuclear energy,” on the whole most people were disgusted with the visit. They saw Ahmadinejad for what he is— as Bollinger called him, a “petty, cruel dictator,” and were not surprised at the way he tried to avoid questions and manipulate the audience. Most of us laughed audibly during his holocaust denials and claims that there are “no gays in Iran.” On the whole, most people realized that him being there was a mistake— because to have rational discourse, parties to the debate have to be, well, rational.

UPDATE at 9/24/07 3:32:31 pm:

After listening again to the applause in the video above, I have to say it sounds like more than 20 or 30 people applauding and cheering.

 Frank says:

I'd like to know who's Plunkin' the monkeys? -- It was on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. I can't remember the year maybe 10 years ago? They were talking about AIDS and how AIDS all got started, he had 3 theory's. First Frank said something about AIDS being a government test gone wrong Then maybe it was an Alien (ET) test or mistake and finally they talked about the theory of AIDS coming from a monkey and then Frank said " I'd like to know who's plunkin' the monkey's?"
