Totalitarianism Attacks !


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrives in New York Sunday amid a firestorm of controversy surrounding his visit to the United States.

Ahmadinejad, who has called the holocaust "a myth," encouraged the destruction of Israel, supported terrorists in Iraq and defied United Nation's sanctions to halt uranium enrichment, will once address the United Nations General Assembly and then later address a Columbia University forum.

You see it's all been a big cultural misunderstanding.

All that purported rhetoric in the Western media about "wiping Israel off the map" and the pursuit of the nuclear technology that would enable it, all nothing more than semiotic misunderstanding.

One of the central themes of this blog has been the theory of relativism and how cultural relativism inevitably drags moral relativism in it's wake. The inability to distinguish right from wrong, where the truth becomes subjective depending merely on one's point of view. It's ironic and shameful that an academic institution supposedly dedicated to the pursuit of truth would subject itself to ideological indoctrination under the guise of intellectual diversity.

In an environment that eschews moral absolutism and embraces cultural relativism and the "diversity of opinions", Ahmadinejad will find fertile grounds to supplant factual reality and historical truth with propaganda that purports our history and the holocaust to be nothing more than a myth.


You wanna conquer the world, you're going to need liberals, right?


  1. Actually, what happened was that someone told the Mayor that the Tweed Hall switchboard had been paralyzed by calls from outraged citizens who were responding to appeals from talk radio hosts, bloggers, Jewish organizations, and human rights groups. Feeling the political heat, Bloomberg backed down.

    So much for this man’s presidential aspirations.

    Bloomberg, of course, is not the only U.S. politician who thinks there’s an audience for cozying up to dictators. We’ve already seen Dennis of Damascus and Tehran Tom. And let’s not forget Nancy Pelosi’s journey on the road to Damascus, just in time for Passover and Easter.

  2. The US banned Kurt Waldheim, as President of Austria, from entry due to his WWII Nazi past -- they should do the same to Ahmanutjob!

  3. Thanks for mentioning that Brityank - I would have totally forgotten.
