    Just like Riverdad... you make stupid partisan hack assertions that have no basis in reality, I will match you. Don't like it? Don't do it.

And your comments about speech oppression demonstrate that conservatives really have no idea what the First Amendment means. This is not surprising since their general knowledge of the Constitution is practically nil.

    You want to demonstrate what a hack you are with every post you make, I can show just how silly and stupid your assertions are by making the exact same OPPOSITE assertions with the same evidence that you present... either none or inaccurate.

This is the same person who supports a ban on religious schools, criticizes the state of Israel as having a problem with its Ultra-Orthodox groups and wouldn't think twice about attacking the American right wing for its views on homosexuality and women's rights. Painting her an as an Anti-Islamic feminist is pretty self serving of the same crowd that infests the ME forum.
    Some of her views are mainstream and some are not, mainly because her learning and life experience has been so out of the mainstream.

    Horsi Ali would have made an excellent recipient of the honor, given the history of Brandeis, but pressures from the Islamists got it cancelled. It's not the first time this has happened and probably not the last.

    Yes, under 24 hour guard. It would have been a great opportunity for University students to hear what she has to say.

    The Communists were the largest political, and most violent movement ever, over the last Century and lasted, roughly, from 1917 to 1990, with just a few pockets remaining.

    Was free speech ever allowed in those countries? Are they allowed in what's left?

    She has two full time guards. Her former partner was murdered on the streets of Amsterdam with a note attached to his body saying she would be next. Perhaps the students of Brandeis were to sensitive to hear some of these realities, otherwise it would have been a very interesting and educational talk.

    She can say whatever she wants. And if the Brandeis students want to hear it, they can listen.
