Bloomberg Suggests North Korea as a Home for Brooklyn College Critics | Politicker

Kudos to Bloomberg (and Councilman Steve Levin) for standing up for academic freedom.

""I couldn't disagree more violently with BDS," Mr. Bloomberg explained. "As you know, I'm a big supporter of Israel–as big of a one as I think you can find in the city. But I could also not agree more strongly with an academic department's right to sponsor a forum on any topic that they choose. If you want to go to a university where the government decides what kind of subjects are fit for discussion, I suggest you apply to a school in North Korea." "
