President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was in Columbia University on Monday. Furthermore, he has stated his intetion to visit Ground Zero – the site of the 9-11 World Trade Center attacks.
The controversial leader naturally caused a strong reaction among those Americans who contend that he is a self-avowed enemy of America.
Ahmadinejad was asked various questions during his appearance on stage at Columbia, but get this snippet…
—Asked about widely documented government abuse of women and homosexuals in his country, Ahmadinejad said, “We don’t have homosexuals” in Iran. “I don’t know who told you we had it,” he said.—
And this is why not, as aptly put by Cox and Forkum:
Photos of Ahmadinejad’s ‘humane methods of establishing peace’:
Yes, that is a real gay person ‘hanging out’ in the American Democratic-Liberal’s utopian free-love paradise of Iran.
But don’t worry, heteros… The wonderful wonderland of Iran executes you if you’re raped by the opposite gender, and also executes if you resist rape by the opposite gender. You really can have it both ways!
And if you’re caught performing adultery, the feminist nirvana of Iran will execute the woman (mothers of trhee kids included) while just whipping the man! Progressive!
‘Tis truly strange how American liberals who doggedly fight for gay rights, women’s rights, non-racism, separation of church and state, and religious freedom (including the right to be atheist) show so much support and solidarity with theocratic nations where homosexuals and apostates are summarily executed, women live in the shadows of society and Jews are routinely demonized by the nation’s leaders.
I simply cannot get this Liberalogic.
Cannot. Get. It. Utterly mind-boggling.

Right Truth: Columbia University’s ransom to Iran – UPDATED. Did Columbia University invite Ahmadijenad over to speak freely in order to persuade Iran to release a Columbia U alumnus being held in Iranian prison? Ironically/hypocritically, the alumnus was being held because Iran’s authorities didn’t like his ‘free speech’.

QUESTION: Mr. President, the question isn’t about criminal and drug smugglers. The question was about sexual preference and women.
AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don’t know who’s told you that we have it.
