For the first time in the 21st century and on the American campus, legitimate economic grievances, specific to New York City, specific to the United States, have been tied to Zionism.
Led by a screaming woman in hijab and a man, assisted by the usual outside agitators, students screamed themselves hoarse at Hunter College, a branch of City University of New York not far from where I live just a few days ago.
Their demands for pay parity for adjunct professors is just and long overdue. Their demands for "tuition-free education, the cancellation of all student debt, a minimum wage of $15.00 for campus workers" is, perhaps, more idealistic as well as economically challenging.
However, their demands for "an end to racial and economic segregation in education, racialized college-acceptance practices, work program requirements for students on public assistance, and an end to the rapid gentrification and privatization of public school property" verges on the surreal and smacks of Occupy Wall Street and the Ferguson riots.
The next demand is obscene.
"We demand CUNY divests from Israel, companies that maintain Zionist occupation, private prisons, and prison labor...the Zionist administration invests in Israeli companies, companies that support the Israeli occupation, hosts birthright programs and study abroad programs in occupied Palestine, and reproduces settler-colonial ideology throughout CUNY through Zionist content of education. While CUNY aims to produce the next generation of professional Zionists, SJP (Student for Justice in Palestine) aims to change the university to fight for all people's liberation."
What's Israel got to do with these domestic campus issues? Absolutely nothing--but in the mind of these Muslim Brotherhood indoctrinated students it has come to symbolize every conceivable injustice, both real and imagined; it has come to justify the stabbing, bombing, and car-ramming of Jewish civilians everywhere, especially but not exclusively in Israel or, as we saw on Friday in Paris, against Israelis--and the anti-Israel boycotts undertaken by the EU and by American academic organizations.
I have long referred to CUNY as the Communist University of New York because both the faculty and administration lean far left. If there is indoctrination going on, that indoctrination is anti-Israel and pro-Palestine; it is certainly not pro-Israel and anti-Palestine. But these paranoid ravings, this scapegoating of Jews, Zionists, and Israel for the very crimes being committed by Arab terrorists and their supporters, which include large chunks of the American professoriate, is what the new totalitarianism sounds like.
If there is intimidation, bullying and Blood Libels on campus it is anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism, not Islamophobia or anti-Arab-a-phobia, and it is coming from the Muslim-Brotherhood inspired Left; from Islamic-inspired and Christian liberation theology inspired Jew-hatred among angry African-Americans; from the anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic behaviors of the world's political leaders; and from the silence of our own professoriate--a silence which amounts to complicity as well as to cowardice.
This "million student march" throughout all of CUNY was endorsed by the NYC Students for Justice in Palestine, a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization outlawed in Egypt; by their cells at Hunter College, the College of Staten Island (where I taught for nearly 30 years), John Jay College (where I taught for a semester), by the Law School at CUNY, and by St. Joseph's College and Pace College.
The Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Student Association must be stopped. They are supported by a terrorist organization and should not be allowed on an American campus. They are not a "club." They are Brown-shirts on the move.
Students who have been taught that is it permissible to shout speakers down, interrupt and heckle them, force out distinguished academics, compel payment for outside non-academic rabble rousers, feel empowered by totalitarian Group Think, conduct angry rallies like this one at Hunter College are no better than Hitler-era Brown-shirts. They are not behaving like college students.
They should be emphatically condemned by the administration, and either expelled or de-programmed, whatever works.
If youâd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Wrong. These are the equivalent of the Chinese “Red Guards”...down to a “T”.
Is that like ... drawing a line and sending a note home to your mother ?
No one dares type the solution to screaming mush-heads because ... after all ... they're just chi'run
Like THIS kid
The response should be to divest from anything that supports the so-called Palestinians.
The phrase you will need to get used to is:
Judeo-Western Christian Zionist Alliance.
That is our side. Note, the Orthodox Christians from the east are not on our team.
Islam is the other side.
You have to have a program to keep track of the players. THEY understand which side they are on. I am not sure our side does.
Interesting comment. Do you say that because they are entangled with Putin?
And if they are not on our team, whose team are they on? They are certainly not pro-islamic, so I'm guessing you see a three-way situation here.
Personally, I see Putin as a bully. But the islamists as a major threat to civilization as a whole. And that is many, many levels above bully. So, yeah, I (for now) see the Orthodox Christians/Putin as natural allies more than anything else.
Sad. I took many classes at Hunter when it was one of the jewels of the CUNY system. It shared it’s courses with my own female college ten blocks away. Should never have let it go co-ed.
Sick ideas like this don’t form or develop in a vacuum. These skulls full of mush are being taught it. We need to chop the head off this snake. Perhaps the fact that post-modern liberalism breeds insanity will do the job for us. We are witnessing “academia” eating itself (not a moment too soon AFAIC).
I see modern Russia as more akin to the Russian Empire, than with the Soviet Union. And here is some perspective on what Russian-US ties were then, I see no reason why they can’t be today what they were back then....
I'm not saying it would have worked, but it was worth a serious try. Probably too late now. Putin has a different mind-set than did Yeltsin.
Regardless, Putin is not a threat to civilization. The islamists are. Putin is an ally in that fight.
Yes, the Clintons wanted to rub the Russians noses in it with stupidity like Kosovo.
Is it necessarily bad that Russia wants to be a player on the world stage? It seems that the State Department wants Russia to be a good little slave nation. Is it any wonder they resent the US.
Well...I don’t know if I’d go as far as saying “slave nation”. I’d say, instead, that after 1991 the West treated Russia like an uneducated child, one that must be lectured and, occasionally, have its hand slapped.
And I wouldn’t put all of that blame on Clinton. Bush II wasn’t much more sensible in that regard.
I watched a Muslim cleric speak of Islamic Escatology. He differentiated between the western group because of their failure to follow the commandments—he used gay marriage as an example. He dismissed ISIS as criminals and hypocrites. He stated the in the end times Islam would stand side by side with the true Christian church.
I didn’t buy a lot of his stuff, but that phraseology was interesting.
That's a very interesting slant, something I hadn't considered.
He dismissed ISIS as criminals and hypocrites.
In that case, as I'm sure you'll agree, actions will speak louder than words. When the "moderate" Muslims start turning in the radicals in their midst, then I'll believe.
