Kagan....Gays, the Military and...Saudi Arabia?

The transcript of what he said is HERE....and includes this:
And now, information has come to light suggesting Ms. Kagan may have been even less morally principled in her approach than previously thought. Around the same time Ms. Kagan was campaigning to exclude military recruiters—citing what she saw as the evils of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell—Harvard University accepted $20 million from a member of the Saudi Royal family to establish a center for Islamic Studies in his honor. A recent Obama State Department report concerning Saudi Arabia and Islamic Shari’a law noted that:

“Under Shari’a as interpreted in [Saudi Arabia] sexual activity between two persons of the same gender is punishable by death or flogging.”

So, do you think Ms Kagan is at least slightly hypocritical? She'll keep the military out of Harvard because she feels they're not fair to gays......but she'll take Saudi money to study Islam at Harvard (oh, happy day!), whose Shari'a laws punishes gay sex with death or flogging? Think anybody'll care, or is this just more of "We don't give a damn..........we're in charge and she's in."
Thanks to Hot Air and Imp...

Run deep is the motto of liberal, lying, obfuscating scumbags. Not too much different from the islamist, jihadist, terrorist shit heels.

The policy was in force at Harvard when Kagan became dean. She didn't campaign to adopt the policy but did enforce the existing policy when she was appointed.

Trying to tie this to the donation from Saudi is a cheap straw man and I believe the gift was to the college not the law school so this becomes a larger muddle.

Just another prime example of the complete disregard for ethics & honesty assuming it suits their Liberal & Socialist ends. We shouldn't be surprised in the least.

As to references, often-conflicting sources force us to choose one over another. I think all of us find our way to sources that we are prepared to believe over all others. This explains why Daffy is incapable of rational thought, for in his mind nothing is credible beyond Marxism.

Gee mustang, what the hell does this have to do with Marxism?

You have a serious fixation.

How about a lecture on the Constitution? Maybe, show off that you think you understand what a letter of marque is? What was your source for that, Newsmax?

Duck, if it quacks like a liberal, you support it. I get it, I get it.

Kagan quacks like a liberal jihadi/prostitute.

Remember the day Giuliani threw the Saudi money back into their faces? Was that September 12th? or 13th? Dang, that felt good.

I hope liberals can someday understand the calm pleasure that comes with character.

No this is typical of Marxist in higher ed. They accept money from anyone who will further their death cult agenda.

The Duck is quite obvious about where his warped values and ignorant ideas come from. Universities are infested
with Marxism and need to be restored to centers of learning.

Eliminate all student loans for Social Science majors.

No money for Bolshevism. Cut wasteful student loans for treasonous political activism. Make america a better place outsource Chomsky to North Korea.
