American academia enslaved by communist dictatorships

The sad and disturbing truth that liberal academia in America, so enamored by communist dictatorships, continues to be enslaved by despotic and repressive regimes. Despite their proclaimed love for freedom of expression, like loyal stooges and apparatchiks, they obey every command given to them by communist regimes.

Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng: NYU is forcing me out

(CNN) -- Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese activist whose dramatic escape from house arrest last year provoked a diplomatic firestorm between Washington and Beijing, said he is being forced to leave New York University over fears his presence there is affecting the university's relationship with China.

In a statement released Monday, Chen said that New York University had asked him and his family to leave before the end of June.

"In fact, as early as last August and September, the Chinese Communists had already begun to apply great, unrelenting pressure on New York University," Chen said. "So much so that after we had been in the United States just three to four months, NYU was already starting to discuss our departure with us."

"Academic independence and academic freedom in the United States are being greatly threatened by a totalitarian regime."

    Yeah, well, I'm sure he's just an intransigent, ultra-right-wing extremist pining away for imperial China. You know, just like "those people" and their Batista fetish. Ask Mr. Oliphant. Besides, priorities are priorities. Lip service is fine, of course, but it's not supposed to cost you anything--that's the whole point. Move along.
