REACT: Megyn Kelly, Michelle Malkin Take On Columbia for Hiring Ex-Radical Kathy Boudin as Professor

Columbia University has sparked outrage by giving a prestigious professorship to a former Weather Underground radical who spent 22 years in prison for a 1981 robbery that left three people dead. Kathy Boudin, 69, now holds an adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work, The New York Post reported today. She apparently teaches

courses on convicts re-entering society. A movie by Robert Redford, "The Company You Keep," also starring Susan Sarandon, is loosely based on the $1.6 million heist and will be released in a week. Two police officers and a Brinks security guard were killed in the robbery. Megyn Kelly discussed the latest controversy surrounding an American university with Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin, who said colleges in this country are increasingly turning into "cesspools of tenured radicalization and rationalization for left-wing domestic violence." She said people need to take notice of how colleges and Hollywood are "whitewashing" the violent acts of the Weather Underground and other left-wing groups. Megyn pointed out that O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony were acquitted of murder, but punished in the court of public opinion, while Boudin is now teaching Ivy League students. "She can admit to killing three law enforcement officers, serve 22 years in prison for it, and Columbia University gives her a prestigious job!" said Kelly. Watch the full discussion:
