    NEW YORK (AP) -- A Columbia University professor told an anti-war gathering that he would like to see "a million Mogadishus" -- referring to the 1993 ambush in Somalia that killed 18 American servicemen.

    At Wednesday night's "teach-in" on the Columbia campus, Nicholas De Genova also called for the defeat of U.S. forces in Iraq and said, "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military." And he asserted that Americans who call themselves "patriots" are white supremacists.

    De Genova's comments about defeating the United States in Iraq were cheered by the crowd of 3,000, Newsday reported. But his mention of the Somali ambush -- "I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus" -- was largely met with silence.

    A call Friday to De Genova, 35, an assistant professor of anthropology, was answered with a recording that said his voice mailbox was full.

    Columbia spokesman Joe Kennedy said the university was preparing a statement about the event.

    History professor Eric Foner, who helped organize the teach-in and spoke after De Genova, said Friday, "I disagreed strongly and I said so. If I had known what he was going to say I would have been reluctant to have him speak."

    He said De Genova was a last-minute invitee, was just one of about 25 speakers and "did not represent the general tone of the event, which was highly educational."

    I bet this turd doesn't realize conservative estimates indicate we inflicted 27 times as many casualties on the enemy as we received,

    My email to this sicko:

    Hello sir.

    I read an article that had some colorful quotes from you on the topic of our American troops in Iraq.

    “At Wednesday night's "teach-in" on the Columbia campus, Nicholas De Genova also called for the defeat of U.S. forces in Iraq and said, "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military." And he asserted that Americans who call themselves "patriots" are white supremacists.â€

    You sir, are a pathetic excuse for a human being. You should struggle and strive with all of your pathetic being for the rest of your sad life to reach the point at which you could receive the honor of being called “scum†by a true American.
    Even then, calling you “scum†would be an insult to scum, and the highest praise to you.

    You clearly have no understanding of the fact that brave men like the ones fighting and dying in Iraq are cast from the same mold as the heroes who fought and died to provide you with a free country.
    These giants among men fought and died to provide you with the freedom of speech you enjoy.
    These men fought and died for your right to speak your wish of death for them.
    The fact that you have the audacity to wish death upon such noble men is sickening and only exposes the vileness of your character, the blind hatred in your soul, and the foul substance that makes up Nicholas De Genova.

    You are wholly undeserving of the freedoms protected by the noble men that make up the United States Armed Forces.

    What a jerk. I would use harsher language, but this is a tightly run ship, per Oleg.

    Hmmm...he wants American forces to kill 2,000,000,000 Black Africans at the cost of 19,000,000 dead of our own....who's being a racist and a genocidal maniac here? No swearing is needed as the degree of disapproval for that ghoul masquarading as a human-American cannot be expressed with mere four-letter terms. Oxygen thief would be too mild and the sound of a war-ax hitting flesh just right...but we are Americans and will let him talk nonsense. Remember: better to be quiet and possibly be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubts...professor chose the second option, much to the detriment of his standing with actual humans around him.

    That statement had better read, "he's been fired."

    Query:

    He is a professor at Columbia?

    Why are we emailing University of Chicago, at columbia.edu?

    We might want to make sure we have the email/name/title right before we send out mass rants.

    Just a thought,
    Mike

    Too cute for words! I'm a Patriot, and I'm neither white, nor do I endorse and "Supremacy" mentality. This guy was after attention, and he succeeded in getting it.

    I'd rather see him overwhelmed with deafening silence, with a spontaneous boycott of any venture he participates in.

    That he has equal rights to speak his mind is not in doubt - but I sincerely hope the withering of his current and future prospects chill his very soul. . .

    I have MANY words to describe what I think of this scum sucking worm but they would get me banned.

    The word I CAN use is TRAITOR.

    This is nothing more than a public act of sedition and should be handled by law enforcement officials accordingly.

    Here's my email to him;

    I think you should go and live in Iraq, if you are so enamored with it. Perhaps take up arms to defend the goverment there, because you sure don't deserve to live here. Calling for the deaths of American servicepeople is an incredibly insensitive and foolish thing to do. If I were involved with your university I would do everything in my power to have you ejected from the school. I won't make physical threats or the sort of mindless drivel you seem to delight in, that would be stooping to a level I didn't know existed till I read your comments.
    You are a blight on humanity.

    That "perfesser" needs to return to Gilligan's Island, because he ain't from anywhere in reality! He has his head so far up his fourth point of contact, he probably needed a porthole in his belly button to read that speech.

    This goes way beyond freedom of speech. This is sedition. He is advocating the death of U.S. servicemen! Why doesn't this ratbag, scumsucking, bottom dweller go over to Iraq and be a Hero himself? I'm sure he could find someone to engage him in his elitist fantasies. I'll spring for the plane ticket.

    Find me a college (other than Hillsdale, or George Mason, or B.Y.U.) where the majority of professors don't.

    I promise that I'll be extremely shocked and amazed. :rolleyes:

    Regarding your speech at Columbia's recent 'teach-in" if what I read is true:
    I think you are right. Why don't you be one of those "heroes" you talked about and go immediately to Iraq and give your all to destroy the United States Armed Forces. Please place yourself squarely in front of our forces when they march into Baghdad. I promise you we will laud you with all the reverence you so richly deserve, which, I'm sure, will consist of maybe a few open mouths before the whole of us erupt in raucous laughter at another moronic "target."

    I sent my email to his boss and CC'd the dirtbag himself.

    Coronach, in answer to your question about University of Chicago, I suspect that is the credentials of each professor. They each got their Ph.D's from the U of Chicago, is what it looks like.

    CNN said he was a "professor of anthropology." I would suggest that his qualification for the field of anthropology is rather suspect if he is so ignorant of his OWN culture that he thinks anyone who identifies with the term "patriot" is a white supremacist.

    And he feels entitled to our paying his salary . . .

    here is a link to the Columbia Univsersity Newspaper with the artilce as it appeared...

    http://www.columbiaspectator.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2003/03/27/3e82ec7193097?in_archive=1

    Here is an excerpt that Newsday Missed...
    "Peace is not patriotic," DeGenova began. "Peace is subversive, because peace anticipates a very different world than the one in which we live--a world where the U.S. would have no place."

    "U.S. patriotism is inseparable from imperial warfare and white supremacy," he said. "U.S. flags are the emblem of the invading war machine in Iraq today. They are the emblem of the occupying power. The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military."

    Between DeGenova's condemnation of patriotism and his call for "fragging"--"I wish," he said, "for a million Mogadishus"--his speech provoked many of the professors who spoke later in the night to assert their disagreement.

    There is interesting feedback such as this on the page ...

    "Presumably these professors who have such contempt for the United States will put their money where their mouth is and force Columbia to refuse all forms of federal funding? "
