Send kid to Cornell, get an ISIS fighter?
These days, I think a club for “Naked Puppy Stompers” on a college campus would raise nary an eyebrow, I mean, they wouldn’t want to appear intolerant.
My favorite “mick”, James O’Keefe knocks it out of the park again. This time, with an undercover video of a Cornell administrator agreeing to the formation and sponsorship of a club on campus, that supports ISIS!
Not only are ISIS and Hamas mentioned by name in the “sting”, but permission is given for a “freedom fighter” to speak on campus. The speaker would be paid with a grant of course, and given permission to train students on campus as well.
“Multiculturism” and “Political Correctness” both originated from the academic intelligentsia at Universities, so we shouldn’t be surprised. Sadly, “P.C.” also stands for “Preparation for Caliphate”.
“The university is not going to look at different groups and say, ‘You’re not allowed to support that group because we don’t believe them’ or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the university wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world,” Scaffido said.
The undercover asked if he can invite “a freedom fighter to come and do like a training camp for students.”
Scaffido responds, “You would be allowed to do something like that. It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training, a sports trainer or something,” the Cornell official said.
The State Department includes both ISIS and Hamas on its list of terrorist organizations.
Cornell brass responded to a Post inquiry made to Scaffido.
“Cornell fully supports the free exchange of ideas and does not review or control the political ideology of our students. We do not, of course, tolerate unlawful advocacy of violence, and the comment about training by ISIS freedom fighters does not reflect university policy,” said Joel Malina, Cornell’s vice president for university relations.
