    Support for the terrorists and sanctions on Israel. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.Matt Duss had once compared Israel’s blockade of Hamas to “segregation in the American South.”  After the murder of the Henkin family in front of their children, the stabbing of a two-year-old and his mother in Jerusalem, Duss wrote, “it shouldn’t shock anyone that Israel’s harsh occupation and abuse provokes Palestinians.” He blamed the “rising violence” on Israel and not the PLO terrorists. "Israel does need to start facing...

    The Washington Post ^ | August 16, 2017 | Mark Bray
    First bursting into the headlines when they shut down far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February at the University of California at Berkeley, antifascists again captivated the public imagination by battling the fascists assembled at the “Unite the Right” white power rally in Charlottesville. But what is antifa? Where did it come from? Militant anti-fascist or “antifa” (pronounced ANtifa) is a radical pan-leftist politics of social revolution applied to fighting the far right. Its adherents are predominantly communists, socialists and anarchists who reject turning to the police or the state to halt the advance of white supremacy. Instead they advocate popular...

    Shame on Cornel West, his Refuse Fascism fascists, and the academic and liberal elites for failing to preserve and protect freedom of speech on this campus and on most American campuses At Harvard, I had a diverse group of friends and acquaintances. From Ayn Randists, Young Republicans, bleeding heart liberals to radical militant feminists, socialists and further to the left- militant Black Panther- loving Marxists. Cornel was a member of the latter group. After Harvard, Cornel secured a Ph.D from Princeton in Philosophy. He then successfully scored professorships at Harvard, Princeton, Union Theological Seminary and now is returning to be...

    UMass Daily Collegian ^ | 10/10/16 | Azarael
    Professor Cornel West put it bluntly when giving a speech in front of an audience of hundreds at Smith College this past February. “I want you all to know you are in this class to learn how to die,” he said. Not long ago, a Latino friend of mine was coming out of a bar and was stopped by an Amherst police officer. I’m unsure of what exactly transpired between the two of them because I wasn’t there. But his story was that, as a result of whatever verbal altercation transpired, the officer threw him against the hood of the...

    Algemeiner ^ | 7-28-16 | Stephen M. Flatow
    JNS.org – I agree with Cornel West. I never thought I would find myself writing those words. West, a leading African-American author and intellectual, is a vicious critic of Israel. He supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. He says Israel’s leaders are “war criminals.” In a speech at Princeton last year, he made the wildly absurd claim that the Israelis “are killing hundreds [of Palestinians] daily.” But even a broken clock gives the right time twice a day, so on the rare occasion that West utters words of truth about the Palestinians or Israel, I must acknowledge that....

  • Sanders' pro-Palestine backers could spark uproar at Dem convention

    'Justice for Palestinians cannot be attained without the lifting of the occupation,' Cornel West was quoted as saying by 'The New York Times' on Wednesday. The Democrat party is facing a possible dilemma as supporters of the two candidates vying for the nomination gear up for a debate on what to do with its Mideast policy. The Israel issue is threatening to tear the party apart as Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator who has mounted a considerable presidential campaign that has earned him greater clout within the left-wing camp, has tapped two individuals to a key committee who seek to...

    The Democratic party has revamped the way it appoints members of its platform committee, apportioning representation based on votes in the primary. As a result, Hillary Clinton has appointed six members of the platform committee, Bernie Sanders has appointed five, and party Chaircritter Debbie Wasserman Schultz ('I wear my support for Israel to work on my sleeve every morning') has appointed four. One of Sanders' appointees is longtime anti-Israel activist James Zogby. Sanders’s choices include James Zogby, a pro-Palestinian activist who is president of the Arab-American Institute in Washington and a frequent commentator on Arab-Israeli issues. On Saturday Zogby...

    Civil rights activist and philosopher Cornel West on Monday endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. "I endorse Brother @BernieSanders because he is a long-distance runner with integrity in the struggle for justice for over 50 years," West tweeted late Monday night. West went on to say that it's time for Sanders' "prophetic voice to be heard across our crisis-ridden country." While West has been a long time supporter of Sanders (and "not a Hillary Clinton fan at all"), the endorsement comes weeks after Black Lives Matter activists disrupted a Sanders event in Seattle, taking the podium from the self...

    Reacting to President Obama's use of the n-word on Marc Maron's podcast, (Princeton / Harvard Professor) Cornel West called him the first "niggerized" president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as "a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy." "Too many black people are niggerized," West said Monday on CNN. "I would say the first black president has become the first niggerized black president." "A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy...

    The career assassination of Cornel West: A messy intellectual divorce reveals layers of broken heart — and to what end? Independent of one’s stance on the rift between Michael Eric Dyson and Cornel West — a rift years in the making and now clearly delineated in the form of Dyson’s essay on West in the New Republic, “The Ghost of Cornel West” — this has all the hallmarks of a messy divorce between two public, black intellectuals who were, perhaps, better served keeping things offline. Maybe try to squash their beef in the privacy of an on-campus office or in...

    Professor Cornel West appeared on CNN International this afternoon to give his take on Ferguson, and said right at the outset, “Ferguson signifies the end of the age of Obama. It’s a very sad end. We began with tremendous hope and we end with great despair.” He went on to cite a “Jim Crow criminal justice system” that doesn’t seek justice for young black and brown people, and said adamantly there is both a race and a class war going on against that group in America right now. CNNI anchor Hala Gorani asked West why he’s “so harsh” on the

    WASHINGTON – Author and political activist Cornel West told an audience that the criminal justice system in America is criminal itself, calling out JP Morgan president/CEO Jamie Dimon. “The criminal justice system in America is itself criminal. You’ve got Wall Street criminals walking free, sipping tea at the White House. Jamie Dimon, we might as well call names,” said West during a speech and book signing at Busboys & Poets in Washington on Thursday. “What does he do? He basically negotiates how much he wants to pay given his criminality and then writes it off as a tax write-off. And...

West was also seen at protests Sunday night. Los Angeles Times reporter Matt Pearce wrote on Twitter that West was joined by clergy in a march to the Ferguson police station on Monday. The demonstration, Pearce wrote, was "highly coordinated" with "organizers clearing paths, sending clergy in waves … willing to get arrested." Protesters planned a "day of action" Monday, demanding the arrest of the police officer who shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown....

We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned...

    Russia Today ^ | August 6, 2014 | Staff
    Professor and political activist Cornel West declared President Barack Obama a “war criminal,” arguing that his support of Israel and his drone policy make him complicit in the deaths of innocent people. The controversial activist made the comments at a pro-Palestinian rally in Washington, DC on Saturday, according to Talking Points Memo. West began his speech by pointing to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, where more than 1,800 Palestinians and more than 60 Israelis have been killed, criticizing Israel’s offensive in the region in front of a “Free Palestine” banner. His comments regarding President Obama begin at around the three-minute...
