Rudy makes an interesting point in addition to those many have raised about the absurdity of selecting a Holocaust denier and terrorist to speak. By giving him a platform with a crowd to applaud we may be feeding his bizzare perspective on American politics and contributing to his miscalculation about the popularity of his regime. Doesn’t this just embolden him and make peaceful deterrence harder? Oh well, not Columbia’s concern. They are in the business of giving everyone the stage. (And why not a whole series on terrorists? He’s just one nuanced view after all.)
