More examples of the liberal mindmeld that our colleges are teaching our youth. This professor, Dr. Natana DeLong-Bas, who teaches at Boston college in Theology told a interviewer while in Saudi Arabia that Osama Bin Laden was NOT behind 9/11:
Dr. Natana DeLong-Bas was interviewed by Al-Sharq Al-Awsat in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where she said that the western media has given Osama bin Laden more status than he deserves. She added: "I do not find any evidence that makes me agree that Osama bin Laden was behind the attack on the twin trade towers. All we have heard from him was simply a praise and commendation of those who had carried out the operation."
There ya go. This is the kind of beliefs that the teacher of our kids displays in Saudi Arabia. You think she changes her tune once in Boston? Not on your life. Hell, she wrote a book that tries to display Wahhabism in a good light.
Meanwhile you may recall Professor John Daly from a year ago. At the time he was teaching at Warren Community College in New Jersey and sent a email to a student in response to her announcement that a war hero would be making a presentation at the school. In that email Professor Daly wrote:
I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it. Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive. Your main poster "Communism killed 100,000,000" is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily news papers. The U.S. government can fly to dominate the people of Iraq in 12 hours, yet it took them five days to assist the people devastated by huricane Katrina. Racism and profits were key to their priorities. Exxon, by the way, made $9 Billion in profits this last quarter–their highest proft margin ever. Thanks to the students of WCCC and other poor and working class people who are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations who earning megaprofits from their imperialist plunders. If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years.
I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your won’t dare show their face on a college campus. Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people’s needs–such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again.
Prof. John Daly
This email was sent in November of 2005, soon after he resigned. A reader recently commented on my blog with an update of this scumbag:
In the interest of keeping track of thugs like this guy, I can tell you that John Daly is currently residing in Miami, FL. He is still a very active member of A.N.S.W.E.R., and still a rabidly anti-american self-styled socialist douche.
To the best of my knowledge, he is not now teaching, nor has he since this scandal. (Though I am not 100% certain of this)
I also happen to have found what is possibly the only source of photos of him. They are on his own myspace page, and can be found at the following URL.
I compared the picture of the guy that WorldNetDaily posted last November:
With the pictures on his MySpace page and it sure does appear to be the same guy. Get a load of some of what he has to say nowadays:
If you’re into socialist politics hit me up. If you’re about fighting back against racism, sexism, lgbt bigotry and war then let’s talk. Stop the US-Israeli Assault on the Lebanese and Palestinian people! Some quotes: "Déjeme decirle, a riesgo de parecer ridículo, que el revolucionario verdadero esta guiado por grandes sentimientos de amor." –Che “The chickens have come home to roost. Being an old farm boy myself, chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad; they’ve always made me glad.” –Malcolm X I believe that there will be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing.” –Malcolm X
I enjoy this contact with people, but really believe that health will only improve for the masses of working and poor people when we get rid of this rotten capitalist system and replace it with Socialism. Only then can we see the effectiveness of various health approaches–when the workers own the healthcare and pharmaceutical systems and run it in the interest of people, not profit. I am part of a small grouping in Florida who is determined to build a branch of our party in So. Florida. Check out our websites or give us a call. Join the PSL.
Lenin, Trotsky, Mao, Ho CHi Minh, Fidel, Che, Fred Hampton.
According to the commentor he doesn’t appear to teach anymore but his MySpace page says he still does it part-time:
I teach at the college level part-time. And full-time I work in public health research.

Anti-war coverage, Middle East, Latin America, Anti-racist struggles, LGBT movement, women’s right, fighting the bosses/defending labor……and much more.
Check out some of his pictures:
Here he is with some of his fellow Einsteins: (the big dude on the right)
And finally here he is at what looks to be some kind of liberal rally judging by all the signs:
Just think, your kid could go from learning that Osama wasn’t involved in 9/11 to learning about what a hero Lenin and Fidel were.
