"Cynthia McKinney is a person of considerable achievement in the political sphere," said Porus Olpadwala, dean of Cornell's School of Architecture, Art and Planning, who served as chair of the 13-member faculty committee that selects Rhodes professors. "She is an internationally renowned advocate for voting rights and human rights. She has taken clear stands on a number of critical issues and been a strong voice in Congress."

McKinney began her political career in 1988 when she was elected to the Georgia legislature. A native of Atlanta, she earned a bachelor's degree in international relations from the University of Southern California in 1978 and a master's degree in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Nazism. Pure and simple. No other word for it. Read the rest, they can't even bring themselves to mention Israel's name, instead using the racist term "Palestine", thus denying both Jewish existence and national rights in a single word. Hitlerian bastards the lot of 'em. Its been clear for a long time to all thinking people in this country that the American academy has to be gutted and rebuilt from the ground up. De-Nazification of the university ought to be a first priority of the conservative movement over the next decade, if only to avoid atrocities like this.

By the way, in case you don't know, Ms. McKinney's only major accomploishment in politics has been to claim that George Bush planned the 9/11 attacks in order to manufacture profits for his corporate masters. I think oil was involved somewhere as well, with these retards it always is.
