Brandeis University bails on Ayaan Hirsi Ali
So, Brandeis University offers an honorary degree to AHA. Then the Muslim groups get wind of it and kick up a fuss. Then Brandeis reverses course.
Or rather, crawls into a ball, whimpering.
Brandeis, at least have the courage of your convictions – take the next logical step and blow up your Women’s studies Research Center! Any student in that facility should be resigning in disgust (I doubt they will), and Brandeis’ Feminists should be raising hell (I know they won’t).
Meanwhile the same White Knights who start wailing and howling whenever a cup of coffee is seen are keeping their yaps shut tight. Surprise me.
I’m glad to see that the Atheist A-Team is on the right side here: Sam Harris, Michael Shermer, Steven Pinker etc. are all outraged by this.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali responds.
By the way, if you want to give the president of the podunk college a piece of your mind, here is his facebook page.
Courtesy of Michael Shermer, here’s the guys address if you want to write to him:
Office of the President
415 South Street
Waltham, MA 02453-2728
781- 736-8699 fax
I urge you to do so.
And oh look. A film on honour killings was supposed to be shown on at the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois. And they caved too.
Is there any part of US academia that isn’t Islam’s bitch?
