Brandeis University Students Rally Around Their Heroine

Hat tip Jihad Watch

Guess what happens when a Brandeis student says she has no sympathy for the NYPD cops who were murdered. She becomes a heroine on campus.

Guess what happens to the student who reports on what she said. He becomes a pariah.

Jihad Watch has the report on the statements of Brandeis student Khadijah Lynch..

"Piccione’s lament refers to Lynch telling Truth Revolt that her public tweets are her “own personal opinion.” Lynch had threatened that she does not want her tweets “publicized in any form and if you do not abide my wishes i constitute your disregard as slander.”

Where have I heard that before?

At any rate, the African-American Studies Department is not standing by Ms. Lynch. According to the Brandeis campus paper, Brandies Justice, she has resigned her position as student representative in the department, which has distanced itself from her statement.

"Prof. Chad Williams (AAAS), who is the chair of the department, wrote in the statement that Lynch’s tweets do not represent the views of the department. “AAAS, unequivocally, does not promote nor condones a disregard for the loss of human life,” he wrote. “The deaths of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu are a tragedy and should be treated with proper respect. We express our most sincere condolences to their family and loved ones.”

 If Ms Lynch hates this country so much, she is free to leave.

If you speak in public, and tweets are public speech, nobody is slandering you if they repeat it. This is an extreme case of wanting to have your speech and eat it too.
