Duncan Hunter has the right idea.  Nothing less than cutting all federal aid and funding from Columbia University.  We must send a message to the radical anti-American left.   Here’s Hunters press release from Saturday 9/22/07:

“To host the leader of Iran when he supports terrorists that are moving deadly roadside bombs across the Iraqi border to be used against American troops is a slap in the face for the entire 165,000 men and women in Iraq and to those that have served before them,” said Hunter.

“If President Lee Bollinger follows through with this hosting of the leader of Iran, I will move in Congress to cut off every single type of Federal Funding to Columbia University. If the left-wing leaders of academia will not support our troops, they, in the very least, should not support our adversaries.”

“This event, following the slanderous action of MoveOn.org, depicting General Petraeus as “General Betray Us,” in the New York Times represents the emergence of the extreme left-wing in American politics.”

Concluding, “I think it is time for the Democrat party to denounce this fringe element in their party,” said Hunter.

Way to go Duncan Hunter!  Gosh I love this guy.  It appears that Columbia got just under a half billion (with a B) federal dollars in 2005 ( link ).  One can only assume that must’ve increased both in ’06 and ’07.  So probably close to $2 Billion in the last 3 years, ya think?  That money could be well used in other pro-American endeavors.  Its time we take back our colleges and universities from the left.  Its hard to believe that many of the old ivy league universities were once Christian institutions ( link ) and were founded to teach in depth Biblical studies.  Now they’ve become nothing less than left-wing, anti-American, brain-washing, propaganda factories.  We send our children to get an education but instead they get indoctrinated.  Look at our own President!  A rabid open borders globalist from Yale!  If our nation is to survive we need to either take back control of these institutions of so called “higher learning” or shut them down and start new ones.  Time to shut ’em down and start over and insist on a certain level of behavior from both the students and faculty.

This is the first volley in the Take Back Our Universities War.   David Horowitz has been battling alone for a long time on this very front.  Personally, I ‘d like to see Columbia U wither on the vine.  Nothing left in 5 years but empty buildings filled with cobwebs.     Darvin Dowdy
