Ah, the jabba-flavoured hypocrisy.

Blogging Tory jabba the roy pushes himself away from the buffet table long enough to hork up another tear jerker (courtesy of Five Feet of Bowel Obstruction):

Very sad and frightening

If you are a Holocaust denier or noam chomsky you can speak at a US campus. Not if you support Israel or tell the truth about jihad.

This time, Nonie, who is the founder of Arabs for Israel, was invited to speak at both Columbia and Princeton. The official invitation at Columbia came from the very distinguished CAMERA, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME), and from a new student organization there: Campus Media Watch, a group which is not yet quite up and running. Darwish flew from the West Coast, and was already all dressed up and ready to travel to Columbia when she got word that she’d been canceled.

“How humiliating is that? To come all this way, to be almost out the door, only to be told that they had to cancel my speech because campus security felt they could not protect me. Everyone is trying to blame someone else. Even the campus Republicans were afraid to sponsor me. SPME kept trying to fix it, but in the end, they could not.”

And if there's one thing we know about dr. jabba, it's that he's all about the freedom of speech. Or maybe not so much:

Galloway Ban upheld

Some of my friends , and others such as Lord Black want galloway to come here to entertain us. I am somewhat conflicted on this issue, but I think in the end this is the right decision for this individual. I am happy about the upholding of the ban against him, even though it's bringing him more publicity. galloway is a known funder of a terrorist organization. His so called charity is now being investigated. Its not like he;s being silenced. All his various utterances are being reported in great detail in our media.

I'd try to explain that whole "As ye sow, so shall ye reap" thing to jabba but, let's face it, jabba's just not into big words.
