Hippyocrisy at Yale!!!!

There's a new movie coming out this Spring semster that is of high interest here. I think it's a comedy but it may get a little dramatic in the end. It will certainly be tinged with intrigue and it may (to the dismay of Hollywood activists everywhere) outdo Brokeback Mountain as the year's most controversial flick. It's a remake of a crappy comedy from 1998, but Yale has produced it so it will most likely incorporate some of their multicultural ideological agenda.

The star in this film will be an old face around "in the know" liberal academic circles in America, however, you, my reader, may not be familiar with him. His name is Ramatullah Hashemi, and he is the former spokesman for the Taliban. Yes the Taliban. The Islamofascist group who stone homosexuals and oppress women. Yes that Taliban. The group who harbored Osama bin Laden prior to the 9/11 attacks. He defended the actions of bin Laden while he visited the U.S. in spring 2001. He visited Yale then, and apparently they liked him so much they invited him back. Uh-huh, Yale. Yaliban University. He's taking classes there, including "Terrorism - Past, Present and Future". What are they thinking? How could they possibly have thought this would be a good move?

So, that's right folks, you heard it here first, coming this spring to a liberal university near you, Ramatullah Hashemi, former ambassador-at-large for the Taliban (Yale, class of 2009)!!! I've managed to procure an exclusive look at the poster for this film, and posted it below:


I've got some WMD's, Let's Use 'em!!!

I think that this simply demonstrates the snobbish intellectual mindset of the Yale (and academia in general) elite. I'm sure that the people who thought it was ok to deny admission to a qualified American student in favor of this enemy of the U.S. (who happens to have a 4th grade education and a GED, I've heard) also have their panties all in a wad about Bush's port deal with the UAE. They don't grant the Bush administration the right to approve a sound business decision that (according to them...) poses no threat to our national security, however they will let someone who publicly defended Osama bin Laden right before 9/11 on our own soil, study at their "prestigious" institution. This man (according to them...) poses no threat to our national security, but, BUT, he formerly represented the group that perpetrated the most catastrophic event in the history of our nation.

So there's hippyocrisy example #1 for those keeping score: these elitist academics believe that it's ok for them to host a former sworn enemy of the United States, because they are so much more intellectually and morally superior to the rest of us. But if the Bushies approve a deal with a non-sworn enemy who happened to be the homeland of two 9/11 hijackers but now is a key ally in the war on terror, OH MY GOD!! we are going to get nuked for sure!!! Bush doesn't care about national security!!! He probably thinks another attack will help his approval ratings!!! Ahhhhhhh....fear the UAE!!! And, in the end, some overachieving white class president/valedictorian from Iowa is going to pay the price by losing his spot in the class of '09 to this chump. Alas.

Furthermore, what about all those campus activists at Yale? Do you think the Gay and Lesbian Student Alliance is protesting this homophobe being there? How about the feminists? Don't you think they should have a problem allowing this man, who supported the institutionalized oppression of women, anywhere near their campus? The answer is no, and it should be obvious why to anyone with half a brain. Why, it's utter, without a shade of doubt, clear as day Hippyocrisy! (This is example #2 for those keeping score) I've never seen such utter hippyocrisy. They are allowing their multiculturalism, with a healthy heaping of Bush-hatred mind you, override their principles. This man is evil, reformed or not, and to allow him a spot at one of America's top universities is both idiotic, stupid, and hippyocritical.

James Kirchick, reporting from ground zero of the debate, obviously has recognized the hippyocrisy as well:

Don't expect a word of protest from our feminist and gay groups, who now have in their midst a live remnant of one of the most misogynistic and homophobic regimes ever. They're busy hunting bogeymen like frat parties and single-sex bathrooms. The answer Hashemi gave five years ago when asked about the lack of women's rights in Afghanistan, "American women don't have the right not to find images of themselves in swimsuits on the side of a bus," is the sort of sophistry likely to curry favor among Yale's feminist activists, who make every effort to paint American society as chauvinistic while refraining from criticizing non-Western cultures. To do so would be "cultural imperialism," and we cannot have that at an enlightened place like Yale.I personally want to know whether Hashemi supports the flattening of homosexuals via brick walls, which was one of the ways the Taliban dealt with gay men. Having written a newspaper column for nearly my entire time at Yale, I suspect some of my peers would like to see me flattened by a wall, but I doubt any of them served a regime that carried out such a practice as official policy.Purportedly, Hashemi is here so we can learn from him. Shaw, who gushed that his interview with Hashemi "was one of the most interesting I've ever had," told the Times, "this is a person to be reckoned with and who could educate us about the world." We should welcome Hashemi, in hopes that American pluralism -- eating in a kosher dining hall, taking classes alongside girls and gays -- will help him liberalize his homeland. Rahmatullah Hashemi has much more to learn from Americans and Yale than we do from him.

WD, it should also be pointed out that not only is a member of the Taliban allowed into Yale, but that the ROTC is not allowed on campus and has not been for some time. Providing comfort and aid to the enemy.....treason anyone? I mean, thats just according to the constitution (punishable by death), but as long as you're a northeastern elite I guess its more like a recommendation these days.

Did you hear that d-bag Richard Dreyfuss last week? He was talking about impeaching Bush, etc, and then he said, mind you in his wimpy little nasal professor tone, something like, "treason....watch me lose my sense of humor if you accuse me of treason.." He was trying to sound tough, and undoubtedly some hippy chicks who like their boys scrawny and long-haired probably thought he was. Me, I thought he sounded like that kid in elementary school who was really dorky and got bullied around but always said something like, "one of these days you'll be working for me"...as his head was in the toilet or something.

I mean its not even surprising anymore, they're entitled to free speech as long as no one questions them.
