That's not this guy's rationale. I doubt that he'd care if Columbia hired someone who did some time on a shoplifting conviction or a decades-old breaking and entering. Nor would he be leveling this criticism at Burns & McDonnell if they hired Boudin as an engineer or at the KC Royals if they hired her as the PA announcer at the K.
This is about a university hiring a revolutionary radical with a history of violent terrorism to "educate" young people.
