... then why did they blacken out the podium and the backdrop?



See these heavily-branded events from the same Columbia U. World Leader Forum:


Dr. Ivo Sanader, Prime Minister of the Republic of Croatia,


Evo Morales, the first indigenous president of Bolivia

They didn't blacken out the podium. They blackened out the lectern. The podium is the thing that the speaker and the lectern are standing on.



Hmm, maybe it was just a color coordination thing.

You know, black hair, black backdrop. Grey suit, grey podium.

Does Columbia have a School of Fashion & Design? Maybe this was an interdisciplinary event!

Either that or they had second thoughts about the university name being permanently associated with the largest state sponsor of Islamic terrorism. But why should a bunch of leftist academics care about something like that!

Nah, definitely has to be a fashion thing.

Columbia does 'black face'?

Divestment from Columbia is the best response. Universities have to be reined in and hitting them in the pocket book is the only thing that will work.



Excellent point.

Will anyone in the MSM question this?

*Crickets*



Is it too much to ask the leader of a nation to don a tie? What is it casual Monday over at Columbia?



eh, most likely the "death to America/ death to Israel" banners got delayed at the print shop.



I agree with Mitt that all people from Iran in this country should be arrested and put in camps. We cannot have enemies here in the United States and it is a pity that Guantanamo is not big enough. We should create camps in other countries like Russia and Germany to put them.

Ties are a Western device to be eschewed by all good Persians.



It was done on Ahmadinejad's request. Black is part of he shtick. It goes along with world dominance, oppression of freedom, and authoritarianism.



Kyle, Ahmadinejad won't wear a tie because it's cross-shaped.

Those are different rooms. Ahmadinejad was in Roone Arledge Auditorium at Lerner Hall. Your other pictures are from Miller Theater (Morales) and Low Library (Sanader). Sometimes Columbia has branded Roone Arledge, as when their own professor Stiglitz spoke on globalization, and sometimes not, as when India's PM Vajpayee spoke.

I recommend caution in merely pulling pictures from the internet without actually knowing where those picture were taken on campus, and when.

If I recall correctly ties fell out of fashion after the revolution, considered symbols of western ideals:

isn't it possible that Ahmadinejad requested that for his own propaganda purposes?

How does that change anything? Who's running the show.. if that were the case it would only change the evidence that Columbia knuckled, not the end result.

If this is part of a school speaker program, the invitee has the option of accepting or not.

Suppose you invited a notorious celeb to your house for a small party, would you allow him to then dictate the decor and the guest list?

And if you did, what would that make you?



3 different microphones 3 different podia... I'm thinking these photos were from different rooms.

You know they might have needed a bigger room given all the buzz.



This sort of perfidy is a commonplace at Columbia. Please follow the link below for more evidence of their sinister intent:

http://sajablogs.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/curley.jpg



Neither PM Vajpayee's appearance nor Curley's were made as part of the World Leaders Forum.

Every photo and video I've seen from the Columbia site involving that event was branded - save for Ahmadinejad's.

It doesn't matter that the photos on this site aren't from Lerner Hall. They're just evidence of the branding involved with the event. Every previous speaker at the World Leaders Forum in Lerner Hall or in any other hall or auditorium at Columbia spoke at a lectern with a WLF and/or Columbia logo or in front of a drape with the WLF lettering on it.

Except for Ahmadinejad
