Cornell Dean: 'Why Yes, ISIS Is Welcome To Train Jihadis On Campus!'
James O'Keefe strikes again.Somewhere in heaven, Andrew Breitbart is smiling.
O'Keefe sent an operative with the alias 'Ali' to visit Cornell’s assistant dean for students, Joseph Scaffido, who agreed to inviting an ISIS “freedom fighter’’ to conduct a “training camp” for students which Scaffido compared to 'running a sports camp.
“You would be allowed to do something like that. It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training, a sports trainer or something,”
He also endorsed Cornell sponsoring a pro-“Islamic State Iraq and Syria” group on campus, which would provide material support for terrorists (a felony)in the form of “care packages, whether it be food, water, electronics.”
How about supporting Hamas?
No problem at all, Scaffido said. Apparently he's fine with genocide against Jews as well.
“The university is not going to look at different groups and say, ‘You’re not allowed to support that group because we don’t believe them’ or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the university wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world,” Scaffido said.
I actually would love to see Mr. Scaffido meet up with some of those 'sports coaches' from Islamic State. He obviously doesn't need his head anyway.
Cornell was shocked and embarrassed by this, said that in no way does the university support these views and that Joseph Scaffido was going to be fired for potentially involving the university in a felony violation of federal law.
Oh, wait...none of the above! In response to inquiries from the New York Post, here's what Cornell had to say:
“Cornell fully supports the free exchange of ideas and does not review or control the political ideology of our students. We do not, of course, tolerate unlawful advocacy of violence, and the comment about training by ISIS freedom fighters does not reflect university policy,” said Joel Malina, Cornell’s vice president for university relations.
It would be quite interesting to see what other groups Mr. Scaffido has been assisting to get funds from the university and use it's facilities, now wouldn't it? And even more fascinating to see which ones he's deliberately impeded and discouraged. 'Free exchange of ideas' obviously includes Hamas, the Taliban, Islamic State, and Hezbollah on the menu...can I get fries with that?
These are the people who are mind raping your sons and daughters.
A fish rots from the head. So does a nation.
