Canada is now rivaling the state of Nebraska for the title of world's intellectual laughing stock
. When UIC's Distinguished Professor of Education and author, Bill Ayers
landed in Toronto to speak at a university conference, Dudley Do-Right and the RCMP quickly mobilized, funny hats and all, and turned him back
at the border. They were obviously afraid that their U of T students would rise up in rebellion against them and stage an armed revolt against dull campus life, at just the sight of Bill?
[Jeffery] Kugler [executive director of the Centre for Urban Schooling at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto] said the Centre for Urban Schooling was left scrambling to cancel a busy day of appointments for Ayers. He had been scheduled to deliver a lecture at an inner-city teacher education program, to speak with principals and senior staff from the Toronto District School Board, to visit a classroom and to talk with community youth workers. Later, radio and television interviews were scheduled, followed by an evening lecture.
But NYT flat-worlder Tom Friedman
has a completely different take
Indeed, dare I say, I hope Obama really has been palling around all these years with that old Chicago radical Bill Ayers. I hope Obama really is a closet radical. Not radical left or right, just a radical, because this is a radical moment.
I heard a state senator has introduced a measure to ban Bill Ayers from teaching. I guess Sen. Bomke wants Illinois to enter the laughing stock race. You can read about it here: http://publicbroadcasting.net/kwmu/news.newsmain?action=article&ARTICLE_ID=1459230§ionID=1ReplyDelete
