Glorified Bastards – For Western elites, Ahmadinejad is preferable to Hirsi Ali, the Castros to Cuban dissidents.

“One of the most peculiar pathologies of Western elites is carrying on this apparent romance with non-Westerners who dislike the West, while spurning those who admire it.

Earlier, Columbia University had welcomed the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an unhinged anti-Jewish and anti-American theocrat.”
