    Good review:

    http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2007...indoctrinate-u-attacks-political-correctness/

    Point made: college officials oversee a totalitarian atmosphere of left-wing orthodoxy that holds up &#8220;diversity&#8221; and &#8220;tolerance&#8221; as gods, but there&#8217;s no real intellectual diversity and breathtakingly little &#8220;tolerance&#8221; for conservatives, libertarians, Christians, or whites. It&#8217;s near-impossible to get them on camera to explain themselves, and when they do, they sound very much like people so pickled by years stewing in groupthink that they don&#8217;t realize how ridiculous they sound &#8212; or have any idea how to parry with a questioner. A Bucknell professor named Geoff Schneider catches himself referring to &#8220;sentencing&#8221; a student to sensitivity training, and the odious Noel Ignatiev of Harvard sounded like a talking Onion parody with comments like &#8220;whiteness must be destroyed.&#8221;

    Not sure what to make of this type of propaganda, the question is loaded and contains incorrect information, but what is the purpose? Columbia U has lots of information and openness that I doubt exists in a Christian college so what really is the point? Colleges are required to teach information that passes as knowledge and is useful in the real world. If you don't like the curriculum don't go there or take the courses you want. This is a free country, and for most people the information they gain in college is valid for their life and work.

    "Columbia Unbecoming in fact misquotes an essay Dasbashi penned for an Egyptian periodical on the subject of Palestine. One version of the film (there are many) has him saying "Half a century of systematic maiming and murdering of another people has left...its deep marks on the faces of the Israeli Jews, the way they talk, walk, the way they greet each other.”

    In actuality, the phrase “Israeli Jews” does not appear in Dabashi’s article. In the essay he only refers to passer-bys during an incident at an Israeli airport; it is not a reflection on Israel, like the film suggests.

    Indeed, as Pollack infers, many of the accusations that fly in the film are flimsy. Many of the interviewees’ most damning anecdotes lack corroborating witnesses, for example."
