personally i think the palestinians have forever screwed themselves over politically via incredibly stupid suicide bombings
if they want the world to not really give a shit about palestinians and to cheer on the israelis, then blowing up random unarmed civilians is a great way to do it. but suicide bombing does play well in the islamic world as "heroic resistance" or other such crap, and maybe that's their real audience.
nonetheless, their right to free speech must be protected, and must always be higher than random PC rules made by university administrators if the university accepts even $1 of government money.
Demonstrators after a Northeastern University student organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, was suspended for multiple violations of university policy
university policy should never be higher than the consitution. freedom of speech comes first.
northeastern should have all of its government funding cut off until it complies with the first amendment. not likely though, since america has become a place where the constitution does not apply to workplaces or universities.
in the meantime, send all those demonstrators over to patrick.net, where they really do have freedom of speech.
that's excellent. henry george had no problem at all with capitalism itself. his problem was just with sucking wealth out of other people without working, ie the "takers" at the very top taking from the "makers" in the middle.
Obviously, he woke up from deep slumber, got horny, thought he was still in Mecca, in his palace, and wanted a blow job from a couple of slaves.
maybe you're kidding, but there are persistent stories that slavery is still common in saudi arabia (even though it was technically abolished in 1962). some members of the religious establishment in saudi arabia like Saleh Al-Fawzan continue to insist that slavery always was and continues to be part of islam, and that it is acceptable according to islam to rape your slaves.
but note that modern slavery is not unique to saudi arabia. india and pakistan have vast numbers of slaves, mostly debt-slaves, not religiously justified slavery. debt literally is slavery there.
JFK the first Catholic POTUS qualfied only after he clarified that he would put US Constitution above commands from the Pope. In today's world, a self-identified Muslim would be fine by me if he puts the US Constitution above the Quoran, but then he would be disowned by just about every Imam in the world!
